When a broken heart causes Danish real estate heir Soren Lund to reexamine everything, he leaves behind his privileged life in Europe and sequesters himself in a tiny fishing village in Costa Rica. There he realizes that he doesn’t like the man he was becoming, and when former professional surfer Elena Sol saves his life, he embraces his second chance at life–and love–fully.

Now he’s living a life he could have never imagined, pursuing his dreams of developing eco-friendly boutique hotels, indulging in his newfound passion for surfing, and healing his heart with the beautiful and inspiring Elena Sol.

But when a new surf contest starts up in their small town of Playa Hibisco, Elena’s dream of being a world champion is reignited, while the contest’s presence also brings her ex to town. Suddenly, Playa Hibisco is too small for the three of them.

When Soren is offered a dream business opportunity in New Zealand, he decides to tempt Fate’s hand, and when two women from his past walk into his life, he’ll be forced to reexamine his life once again.


Aviva loves to bring diverse, inspiring, sex positive characters to life, and looks forward to the day when her daughter can read BECKONED and see herself reflected in its pages. She believes consent is a must, condoms are sexy, food is culture, and travel is mind-expanding. Avocado toast, coconut lattes, and Korean spas are her favorite indulgences, and she is a die-hard Angeleno. A voracious reader, you can find a list of her favorite books at

She combines her passion for Jane Austen’s multi-faceted, flawed characters with her love for food and travel to bring you BECKONED: slow burn, second-chance romance inspired by food, travel, and Austen.

She loves statement jewelry, rescue animals, and kind people, and hates talking about herself in the third person.
