A chance encounter with an older student goes horribly wrong and Athena finds herself on suspension from the university. The only good thing in the midst of this upheaval is that the student was Greek and Athena takes it as a sign that now is the time to finally visit this magical country that houses so many dreams for her.
On her visit, she takes in the beauty of the land, learns about the myths of the culture, and experiences more than she ever expected when she is rescued from a near fatal accident by a handsome stranger — and not just any stranger, but a Centaur.
What transpires between them is a mix of passion and discovery as she learns that this mythical creature is not only a superior lover, but a tender being who is more man than any she has known.

He is the only man she dares allow in her bed for fear that her issues would scare off a mere mortal. However, what starts off as a chance encounter with Jed, a handsome stranger, becomes a repeated occurrence as Savannah continually runs into him at a local coffee house.

Can nightly visits from her other-worldly suitor help Savannah to move on with her life and take a chance on love? Or, will she decide that Sleeping with the Sandman is safer and more satisfying?
