Lovers on the Lido Deck

A Tale of Encounter and Connection on a Love Boat

About the Book

Are cruise ships really Love Boats? Could they be? Ten days away from everyday life, exotic ports of call, fantastic food, dancing, forever-flowing drinks. What’s not to love about that?

Millie was not looking for a man. Major-loser, cheater Nicolas ensured that. She watched her BFF Sally cavorting with men in the Salsa Club while she nursed her drink, sitting alone. But then, GQ-ready, Jeff asked to sit with her. He was yummy in any girl’s mind, and he snatched her away, into his shipboard life and tours of paradise islands. Oh-la-la!

Jeff was a loner who traveled the world on cruise ships for ten months per year. He’d been hooked by Heather, who wanted his money and not him. She played him like a piano, but he escaped, now avoiding relationships. At one of the few open table seats in the Salsa Club sat a gorgeous woman. “Sit with her,” came into his mind, and he did. Could a romance worthy of the Love Boat spring from this simple encounter?

Follow Jeff and Millie as they fall in love cruising the Caribbean, one exotic port after another. Can it be real, a happy-ever-after, or will they be forced to separate at the end of ten days?

About the Author

I love to write contemporary and inspirational romance short stories and novellas, thirty-minute to two-hour reads, sweet romances with some sizzle in them. They warm your heart and give flight to your imagination. For someone who hated English in High School and University, I sometimes wonder how I got here. I’ve had animals on four acres: horses, dogs, cats, one named Max, who emitted horrific gas if hugged, chickens, and some hilarious ducks, Indian Runners, which ran rather than waddled.
