Years ago, Alexis Walker had been easily wooed by the splendor of Greece and the charm of Drayce Tombazkis. Beneath the majestic columns of the Acropolis, they had shared a love that seemed inspired by Aphrodite herself. But the same high spirits that drew them together as if by divine intervention sparked jealousy and fights, and Alexis was forced to escape to Athens.
Now, a strange turn of events forces Alexis to return to Crete, the island home of the Tombazkis family, a haven surrounded by sparkling waters, where Drayce expects her to be his wife again. But Alexis feels trapped by his demands, and unsure she could ever love him again. Fortunately -- or perhaps not -- Drayce is game to convince her.
