Love at first sight on the high seas!
Waves of Chances
by Sonja Gunter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Professor Caresse Deveau is all about work and trying to solve the meaning behind her reoccurring dream. Her mother’s interference of getting a son-in-law and a grandbaby is non-stop. Hoping for some rest and relaxation on their mother and daughter cruise, her mother cancels at the last minute.
Was this a ploy on her mother’s part to see her find a boyfriend?
Dennie Lang, owner of several vineyards in the US and England, is onboard to train the crew to serve his wines. From the first moment he sees Caresse, he is attracted to her and with the help of the Captain Neil Becker, his ex-brother-in-law, arranges to be seated at a dinner table for two.
When unseen forces worked to bring them together, there is someone trying to make sure it doesn’t happen and sets other events into motion. Will their new-found love at first sight be enough to keep them together?
Caresse bit down on her lower lip to hide her annoyance. The man had lost his earlier sobering expression and was now smiling, showing perfectly even white teeth. Why would a man want to sit next to her with so many empty chairs? This had her mother’s stamp all over it.
Studying his face, she wasn’t disappointed. Before he’d covered his eyes with his sunglasses, she’d detected an unusual shade of brown eyes she’d never seen. Unable to stop herself, she found herself studying his lips and then his mouth.
She had to give her mother some credit; she’d picked a very attractive man. His blond hair came to the nape of his neck and curled above the collar of his white polo shirt which was unbuttoned.
Another plus. His navy shorts were belted and hung to the top of his knees, revealing hairy legs.
To be polite, she said, “No, it isn’t.”
“Would you like some company?”
“I’m not much into conversation. Reached a good point in my book,” Caresse stated, hoping the man would leave.
It didn’t work. He sat in the lounge chair, crossed his legs, and stretched his arms, showing off his very muscular biceps.
Oh, good Lord. Mom, I’m going to kill you.
Her pulse puttered. If her mother had gone through the trouble to set her up, she might as well talk to him.
Born and raised in the cold and beautiful Minnesota, she escaped to Illinois for seventeen years to raise two boys, and now calls Florida home. She and her husband Andy, who’s always her hero, have a new family to worry about; Cookie, an Assui-Po dog and Chip, a ragdoll cat, that their sons compare to Eeyore.
She loves to travel, read, and bowl. You can catch her writing her next novel at the lanes.
