From the Back Cover
In 1905 Tarpon Springs, Florida, Zanna Krykos values the independence her career as a lawyer gives her from her very traditional Greek family and the pressure they put on her to find a husband. When a friend inherits a sponging business, Zanna finds herself agreeing to run it for her . . . even though she doubts her legal skills make her qualified.
When offered the chance to lead a team of sponge divers to the United States, experienced Greek diver Nico Kalos can't imagine a better opportunity. But his excitement quickly quells when their team arrives only to discover that a young woman with no experience will be their boss. For the sake of his men and the families they support, he can't let the business fail.
But when both the business and the lives of the employees are threatened, can Zanna and Nico set aside their pride and come together to save what matters most?
"An intriguing romance heightens Zanna's life and the reader's appreciation.
The Lady of Tarpon Springs is a nice read related to the actual deep-sea diving for sponges in Florida's history."
