Romance and Adventure in Costa Rica

Welcome to the Scintillating Sunday Romance Blog Hop where multiple romance authors share 8 paragraphs of their work that they find 'scintillating.' Checking out the exhilarating romance adventure, Proximity...


"I need a break from the water," she admitted after a long silence. 

"No need to rush it. I moved our gear further from the edge. We can sit here awhile. Rest. Get our bearings." 

"What bearings? We already deviated from the path, it's completely dark, I—"

He covered her mouth with his to shut her up. Or to calm her down, she didn't know which. And she didn't care. 

She kissed him with every ounce of passion she possessed because she'd nearly died. And when she was frantically searching her way around the labyrinth of dead coral and fossils, all she could think of was that she would die with Bill thinking she'd rejected him. She wound her fingers through his wet hair and crawled onto his lap. 

He slid down the zipper of her wetsuit, his tongue eagerly colliding with hers, as his fingers slid over the bare skin of her back. Call it adrenaline, call it shock, call it destiny, she didn't care, she simply wanted his body. Bill's body.  

Her Bill

She wanted him like she'd craved sunlight moments ago. She needed his touch, his warmth. She peeled him out of his wetsuit, too, wishing she could see him, but finding it strangely erotic that she couldn't despite them being meshed at the mouth. It's like they'd been thrust into a sensory-depravation unit and could only feel each other's heat. 

From the back cover...

Love sometimes hides in plain sight.

Savannah is one of the boys—fun loving, adventurous, a general contractor, and dive master extraordinaire. There isn't much she takes seriously about herself, or at least that's the impression she likes to give off. Women often misjudge her based on her looks so she's gravitated toward a group of men who accept her 'as is'—her Scuba diving club.

Bill has known Savannah's wild side for years and has been comfortable playing the role of best friend. As part of the Dallas Divers, he's shared many adventures with the group from diving the Blue Hole in Belize to exploring the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. When the team heads out to Costa Rica for a series of cave dives, he knows something is off but can't justify his nerves.

Catastrophe happens shortly after their immersion in the cave. With the entrance blocked from an earthquake and separated from the rest of their team, Savannah and Bill are forced to find another way out while battling aftershocks, rising tides, and an undeniable attraction that they've ignored for too long. The question becomes, what's more dangerous...the earthquake or love?
