Selena Harper always thought she had the perfect job: working on a luxury cruiseship, excitement and adventure await her in every port. But as she prepares for her latest shore-leave she finds herself unexpectedly deserted by her newly-engaged best friend. On a whim, she agrees to spend a week on the idyllic island of Crete, in the company of Alekos, a man she's convinced is an incorrigible womaniser. Steeped in mythology, the island soon starts to work its magic on Selena - and, more worryingly, so does Alekos. Is life on the ocean wave really is her dream come true?
