Would you like to take an armchair trip to Mykonos Island Greece? Then follow me. My new ebook GREEK ENCOUNTER is set in Mykonos.

The hero, Stefano Kostapoulos owns a luxurious yacht and will take you-- and the heroine, Ashley Shepard-- around the island where he was born.
Here is the bay where his yacht is usuaually anchored.
A view of Mykonos from the sea on a cloudy day, but usually the skies are blue and the breeze just about perfect.
The downtown of Mykonos with narrow streets where the houses are white with blue shutters.
There are about 60 churches on this little island. Some are as small as a room.
Silver boats hang from the ceiling. They are offered by the sailors who returned home safely.
The main attraction on Mykonos are the sandy beaches with thousands of tourists.

And the many cafes where you can indulge in the local pastries such as baklava.

This is a humorous sensual romance with explicit love scenes, but not erotic.
Available at Amazon
Can the pain of the past bring about the happiness of the future?
Stefano Kostapoulos plans to demolish the dilapidated Pink Villa inherited from his grandmother and build a modern resort on the Greek island of Mykonos. But the American co-owner refuses to sell his shares and sends his attorney to Greece—a lawyer Stefano plans to shred to pieces at the hearing.
Except that Counselor Ashley Sheppard is a gorgeous redhead who knocks Stefano off his axis when he meets her incognito. Sparks fly during a first encounter that leads to a memorable night of passion.
In court, Ashley is in for a nasty surprise. Her handsome Greek god is the opponent. Her heart gnaws with pain, yet she attacks him with all her strength to defend her grandfather’s case.
Stefano wins the lawsuit, but is about to lose Ashley. To keep her in Mykonos, he strikes a deal with his old enemy. Does Ashley dare to trust the Greek playboy? Or even understand her grandfather’s strange change of heart regarding the Pink Villa?

Beautiful photographs, Mona! I adore Mykonos. My husband and I visited the island a few years ago. GREEK ENCOUNTER sounds fascinating. Can't wait to read your new story.

I love the idea of Greece for some reason. I've read both this blog and your blog on this topic, now on to read the book. Oh, and why are all the houses white with blue trim? Is it the only paint color the sell?

A clash between old and new. A classic plot with an exotic twist, Mona. This sounds like a great read. I have to get an e-reader asap.
