'Mistletoe and Ouzo Kisses' by Debby Allen

BLURB: 'A man is for life and not just for Christmas' – or so the saying goes! When Leah Stamford accepts the offer to spend the festive season in Greece with her co-worker, Marcus Savakis, the last thing she expects to be unwrapping is him. But after one ouzo too many, with a voluptuous ex-girlfriend tempting Marcus back into her ample bosom, Leah will stop at nothing to win his affections – but seduction has never been one of her specialties. That's what lost Leah her last boyfriend. Now it’s time to prove to herself that she can be daring and sexy. But has she got what it takes to seduce Marcus away from the desires of his ex-girlfriend? Can her timidity compete with this erotic Greek goddess?
Leah froze, her blood running cold at the revelation of the hidden truth. Immediate flashbacks, as though someone had given her a handful of photographs from those lost hours after the office party, made an unwelcome appearance in her mind. How had she not recognised the signs?
Her fingers tenderly met her lips, remembering how Marcus had kissed her that evening, remembering when she had seen that tattoo before.
A quivering hand closed over her mouth at the realisation that she and Marcus had been more than just colleagues that night. He’d kept the secret from her. Perhaps he was hopeful it would happen again. And it nearly had!
She glanced frantically around the room, at their clothes scattered across the floor. No way would she fight for Marcus’s loyalty against Diona now. Whether it was Christmas morning or not, she couldn’t spend another minute with him.
