Medusa - Tony Talbot

I had somehow gotten it into my head that this was sci-fi with spaceships, but so far I'm reminded more of Waterworld - lots of ocean, and Lissa, the main character, is so unfamiliar with dry land that she can't remember which things are called "trees" and which are called "grass." The bit with The Suit was pretty cool, and Connie is growing on me.

 

Unfortunately, one of my least favorite things has happened: the "I just rescued this person and am lusting over him/her, despite the fact that he/she is still unconscious" moment. The last time I encountered this was, I think, in Allie Ritch's Mating Season. It grossed me out then, and it grosses me out now.
