Product Description to The Greek Seaman novel

The thunder clapped and the mysterious voice of the sea made itself known about them, and as the ship made its sudden precipitous descent once more it rendered them powerless to move.

The captain shook his head. "This is not a hurricane, this is something else. I have never seen a hurricane like this before, have you?"

What is an eighteen year old newly wed doing travelling on a massive merchant ship anyways? Hadn’t she gone to Greece on tour in a ballet as a dancer? These are questions Katy asks herself while travelling the high seas with Don, her Chief Officer husband. However, little do they know a smuggling ring is also on board for this ride. When explosions, injured sailors, and threats to sink the ship for the insurance turns into the smugglers perfect cover up plan, Don and Katy must try to save themselves.  Various ships pass in the night, and the smugglers must finaly try and reach their last contact aboard a rescue operation coming from Crete in order to complete their blue diamond exchange.

This is an exciting sea adventure with just enough suspense and romance. It take's you on a voyage to experience magnificent, soothing wonders of the sea before you enter storms and hurricanes, where Katy also finds herself at times alone on the bridge navigating through it with a seasick crew. From Piraeus, Greece, you'll visit the ports of Lebanon, and Libya, and enjoy the exotic magic of the bazaar. The love between Don and Katy in their ordeal at sea makes this a memorable story.

Happy Spring Break and a little time out.

Lately, I have been so very busy with that other stuff on my "to-do" list that's not so glamorous. And yet, I can't help but stop and find moments in life to enjoy. Right now, it's Spring Break in Florida, and here on the beach where I live, life is really buzzing. You just can't help but be a part of all that feel good energy when running around town. It's moments like this I realize how fortunate I am to be living here.

An added note: A to Z challenge.

Thanks for the bloggers who have passed by from the A to Z challenge, but I have decided not to be part of the A to Z challenge this year, after all. But I will try to get around to some of your blogs and leave a comment. I'm afraid I have too much else to do at the moment.
