The Captain & The Queen

When the “Thunderbolt” of love really happens and there is no denying its heat, its intensity. When life events threaten to pull loved ones apart. When the world is a smaller place than you imagine. When true love never dies.

This is the story of the “captain” and the “queen,” a coming-of-age romance set on Long Island. The passions of a daughter of a Greek tycoon and a Hispanic boy from a middle-class family are tested against all odds as they become more than just friends. The question is: how long can it possibly last?

“On the whole, this book swept me away. I got caught up in Mateo’s head, laughing with (and occasionally at) him, and I rooted for him and Calista all the way. If you want a fun romance filled with reminders of what it was like to be young, look no further.”

– Manhattan Book Review

“Overall, this book has been executed brilliantly. The writing is well-paced and
easy to read. The themes of love, hope, adversity, angst and humor are
portrayed exceptionally well. The characters are multidimensional and
What truly makes this book stand out is the author’s ability to draw the reader
into the story and make them feel as though they are a part of each scene taking
place. Vega’s ability to capture each moment with vivid descriptions and
settings is truly breathtaking.
For readers looking for a captivating love story that will tug at your
heartstrings, this book is perfect.
Highly recommended!”
