Told by the voice of protagonist Bridget Lane, Wicked Games chronicles the story of an untypical 30-year old, who quit her corporate job, to follow her life’s dream. Things go awry, when on a girls’ weekend Bridget runs into an old acquaintance named Oliver, a less than likable, former College classmate she had decided was a male chauvinist after a few run ins on the campus pub. Days after the unlikely encounter, Oliver contacts Bridget boasting about the family business he has taken over; Herbal Tea production based on a small Greek island, and enlists Bridget’s PR expertise. Months later, desperate for a paying gig, Bridget accepts a business proposal from Oliver to produce a commercial for his new product and herb shop on the Cycladic Island of Paros. Things take an unexpected turn when Bridget’s obscure client decides not to approve the final commercial, refusing to pay her, turning her 3-week trip into a seven-month saga. The plot thickens when Bridget falls for young, handsome entrepreneur, Bobby Siteros. Oblivious to Bobby’s sorted past, and current affiliations, Bridget finds herself in a torrid triangle, her modest life experiences unable to prepare her for the lust, passion, and betrayal she is about to endure. Afraid of being judged for her uncharacteristic choices, and not ready to give up on Bobby, Bridget decides to keep her passionate love affair a secret from her two best friends in Chicago, isolating herself in a foreign land reaching a near breakdown. Frantic she’s spinning out of control, Bridget calls upon her long time friend Jack Nichols, a young business mogul in London, England, to help her extract payment for her work, and get back home; and he becomes her last hope to break away from the wicked game she’s been woven into.
