I'm the wild friend. The social butterfly who always knows where the party is (hint: it's usually at my place). After getting my heart stomped on, I end up with a pair of non-refundable tickets for a super-luxurious cruise vacation. The thought of going solo makes me want to puke, but the only person available to come with me is the one guy who's completely unimpressed by my trust-fund lifestyle and wild antics.

What he doesn't know, what none of my friends know, is that I'm trying to start a youth center for LGBT kids. I have no idea what I'm doing, and I'm terrified it won't work out, so I'm keeping it under wraps. It's better to let everyone think I'm just a shallow playboy than to face their pity if my plans fall through. I wouldn't be able to face them if they found out I tried to become something more than just a good-time-guy and failed.


Penn and I have nothing in common. The guy’s never even had a job, while my career is one of my top priorities. He’s into glitzy parties, designer clothes and fancy cars, while I’m more comfortable behind my keyboard writing code or hitting the neighborhood pub with our friends for a beer. Sharing a room with the guy for an entire week is going to be one helluva challenge.

When we end up sharing not only a room, but also a bed, one thing leads to another. Yeah, hookups happen, but it doesn’t have to be a big deal. We agree to keep things casual and set an expiration date for our friends-with-benefits arrangement, to avoid any drama when we get home.

But then I stumble upon Penn’s secret project, and I’m blown away by his compassion and drive to help others. He makes me promise to keep the whole thing a secret, but when he faces a roadblock I know I can help him get past, I have to trust he’ll understand that accepting help doesn’t make him any less capable.

Making Waves is a spicy, frenemies-to-lovers, tropical vacation M/M romance. It features only one bed, loads of beachy shenanigans, friends who are family, and plenty of proof that opposites do, in fact, attract.




Harper Robson grew up dreaming of being a writer, but that didn’t work out until she was in her forties. Along the way, she worked in oil & gas marketing, software development, and spent more than a decade as a stay-home mom.

A true Pacific Northwesterner, Harper loves the rain, and when her family decided to make a big move to Southern California in 2023, she was sure she’d miss the cozy gray winters of Seattle and Vancouver. However, it turns out that a daily dose of sunshine and palm trees isn’t too hard to get used to, and San Diego feels more like home all the time.

She’s mom to two teen boys and an adorable but naughty Yellow Lab. Her husband works in the tech industry, and he makes her laugh every single day.

Harper’s favorite things include getaways with her besties, the Seattle Kraken, her dogs and drinking champagne for no reason at all.
