Floral Fantasy owner, Ari Levington,
spends her first day back from her Grecian trip, busy creating
floral arrangements without even stopping for lunch. Because
of her scarred body, the result of a horrifying car accident,
Ari prefers to labor in the rear workshop, away from patrons
with sympathy in their eyes for her. Ari yearns for her prior
life with friends and a potential family of her own.
The Greek God of Healing, Asclepius, who
in human form is Dr. Thanos Soterios, is determined to lay
bare Ariís inner beauty. Thanos loved her when he consulted
on her three years of recovery and when she visited his
temple, weeping out her loneliness. Arriving at Ariís house
at the end of her first work day, Thanos set about seducing
Ari and proving to her that the scars did not matter, he loved
the beauty he saw inside her heart.
Under Her Skin is
compassionate and sensual. Mary Winter warms the heart with
this tender romance. This is a great story that inspires love
and hope. Very enjoyable.
