Chef Michelle Hutton flees her controlling mother in the UK for the sun and freedom of Greece, longing for a new beginning and maybe just a bit of Zante's local heat. Sexy, pro-bono lawyer Sam Clarke might just be the one to teach her to let go. He's sexy, capable, and totally in control. And too damn hard to resist.
Sam Clarke and his best friend had once been the baddest boys to hit the local party scene-- sex, booze, and more sex--until his friend is killed. Sam turned his back on the blatant sexuality of the island years ago, but can't resist Michelle's desire to bask in the sun and explore the need that grows between them.
Michelle has defied her uptight social-climbing mother to attend culinary school instead of university, and has been working as a chef instead of taking what her mother feels is her rightful society place, with a very correct but boring husband. She leaves everything behind in England and moves to Zante, Greece, to find herself, separate from her family.
She meets Sam, an ex-pat lawyer also from England, and they are immediately attracted to each other, although Sam is reluctant to get tied up with anyone because of what happened to his best buddy, and Michelle doesn’t want to be stuck depending on anyone until she finds out if she can make it on her own.
Lots of brooding conflicts here, but sun, sand and love can cut through all the problems and help these two find what they want from their lives and relationship.
Hot Summer Sands is a great little love story, with a sexy nude beach as background. You’ll love it.
