Wanderlust was previously published as Missionary Position.
Selah Elmore is a confident, curvy woman who knows exactly who she is and what she wants. Her less-than-stellar love life is another story. Hoping for a fresh start, she leaves her home and job in the Pacific Northwest to spend six months in West Africa.
After accepting an offer from a stranger in an airport bar, Selah's real adventure begins during a stopover in Amsterdam. Will the daring, mysterious Kai show her what love really is?
Sparks fly on three continents when perpetually single Selah discovers there's more to love and life than she ever imagined.
Wanderlust is book three in the Modern Love Stories series. It's a spin-off/standalone from We Were Here and Geoducks Are for Lovers.
Professor Selah Elmore is a modern woman. She doesn’t see the need to tie herself down with a husband and children. After all, she has a job that she loves and it allows her to indulge her wanderlust. She is happily self-contained and has no plans to change that.
On a brief trip to Amsterdam, she encounters perhaps the one man that could change the rules of her very well formulated game – international businessman, Gerhard Hendriks.
“Was it the accent?” He mimicked me. His eyes sparkled like sun on dark water. “That and the package.” He coughed. I tried not to look at his crotch after my word slip, but failed. I couldn’t see anything. Bastard suit jacket. “I meant your height and overall Dutchness.” He bit his bottom lip and nodded for me to continue. “You look Dutch. Tall, fair, blue eyes. Put on some wooden shoes and a pointy hat, put your finger in a dyke, and you’d be straight out of a children’s book.”
There is more to Gerhard than meets the eye – he’s beautiful, works a suit unlike anyone she had ever known and is wickedly smart. The more she gets to know about him, the more she feel like something is missing – but she can’t help but fall head over heels in love.
When Selah finds out who he really is – will she return home without looking back or will he become the exception to her every rule?
Falling in love was the last thing I expected to happen. Kai was the last person I expected to fall for. But I had. Somewhere and sometime over the past weeks, I’d fallen. Hard. Those butterflies schoolgirls had in their stomachs took up residence in mine. It was silly. I didn’t do love. Or butterflies. Kai kissed my hand. His touch anchored me in the moment. The here of a hazy pink sky and black silhouetted trees. The now of him. I loved him. I was screwed. And not in a good way.
To say that I loved Wanderlust is a bit of an understatement! I truly connected to Selah in a way that doesn’t happen very often. She struggled to reconcile the pressures that society places on women with living a life that fed her soul.
So, on this International Women’s Day I salute women everywhere as well as Selah because they have the power to change the world…
We’re not promised long lives, or even tomorrows, so we must love the lives we have now.
