Synopsis

After a sudden job lay off, Maya holes up in her apartment, drinking wine and eating ice cream until the day she’s slated to leave for Greece. Even though she’s lost enthusiasm for this Greek island swimming vacation, she’s paid for the trip so she boards the plane.

She figures her life can’t possibly get any worse. She’s unemployed and spent most of her savings hiring a lawyer to collect commissions her corrupt boss refused to pay. She stumbles down to the Lefkada Island dock the first morning jetlagged and grumpy. When she spots a Greek man with a drool-worthy body, her plan is to look casual. Instead, she trips and plunges straight into the water. It wouldn’t be so bad if she never had to see him again. But Eros, a former Hellenic Navy SEAL, is one of her swimming tour companions. He boards the boat, pokes fun at her American mannerisms and asks way too many irritating questions. And he’s so damn hot, he makes her feel confused and distracted all the time. To make matters worse, he’s assigned to be one of her swimming partners.

Maybe Maya could have ignored the simmering attraction between them if it weren’t for the earthquake, the tidal wave and being stranded alone with him on Kalamos Island.

Teaser: Excerpt

     Despite my high-maintenance tendencies, I’m an exercise addict. Back home in Arizona I leap out of bed at 4 AM to rush off for a pre-work swim. Yes, 4 AM is an ungodly hour, a time when any normal person should be curled up under the covers. But I’ve always been a bit of a freak anyway. Hey, exercise is my coffee. It wakes me up and energizes me.
      Getting the blood pumping hard and fast elicits my enthusiasm to unattended for a minute. My butt high in the air, the diaper kept me floating until my mom screamed, ran to the edge of the pool and grabbed my plastic-coated buttocks and hauled me out. Expecting a scream, she was startled when I burst out laughing. Apparently, falling in the pool was just a game to me, she said. Ever since, she’s regaled family and friends with this story.
      I feel a tug of sadness inside my chest thinking about mom and my dad and even my annoying little brother. I long for the comforting safety of my youth. Growing up I never appreciated the home cooked meals or having my own room with a comfortable bed to sleep in. Comfort and security have always been things I’ve taken for granted. Even in college, my dorm room was fairly comfortable. After I graduated and was hired by a Tucson company, my salary paid more than enough for a high-end apartment. I never imagined the necessities and comforts I expected to always have would be taken away in an instant.
      My boss terminated me without warning last week. I felt so depressed I could barely drag myself out of bed. I should have gone job-hunting instead of drinking myself unconscious and holding a non-stop pity party for myself. Or called my mom and asked her if I could move back home until I landed another job. But I hate the weather in Seattle. Cold and dreary days are the worst. A recipe for depression, actually. And it would be awful going back to my parents’ house, not for vacation, but because I can’t handle life on my own. So instead of job-hunting or calling my parents and asking for help, I’m here in Greece. How logical is that?
