breakout paranormal thriller

Inside the Heart of every Warrior breathes the Soul of a Hero–even within The Heart of War.

Meet Ares God of War, the greatest Warrior the world has ever known. He’s moody, grumpy, dominant, ravenously sexual, and above all, built like a Greek God.

Suspected of killing his Daughter in-Law, Psyche, and long in exile from Olympus, the solitude of Ares’ secluded Greek Isle is interrupted when Magdalena MacLeod a plucky little Fey washes up on his shore after believing she’s been shipwrecked. It’s not mere fate that has brought the unlikely couple together yet it may be what tears them apart.

Branded with a golden chastity belt bearing the mark of Cernunnos, Celtic God of the Forest and Death, Alena has been on the run from her husband the Great Horned God for 200 years.

When the Olympians discover her presence on Ares’ island, they send Apollo to the island while Ares is away with orders to bring her to Olympus. With nowhere to run and strikes a bargain with the God of War–her virginity for his protection.

Ares sees a sweeter deal; her in his bed and himself back in his rightful place on Olympus among the Gods. If it means turning Alena over to Zeus afterward, well that’s of no consequence to him…is it?

After Alena proves herself to the God of War in battle and in his bed, Ares must choose between his Divinely Dysfunctional Family, his pride, and Alena.

Get lost in this sweeping dark saga of lust, rage, revenge, and redemption. Battle Ancient Gods while falling in love with Ares God of War and Alena MacLeod. They share a love that will rock the world from the heights of Olympus to the Celtic moors.

  2. It sounds like there’s a lot of action in this book which appeals to me. I also like your description of Ares. He’s probably initiall;y hateable until you get to know him.

  26. I would absolutely LOVE reading a new take on an old classic Greek god! One of my majors in undergrad was Latin and one of my minors was ancient studies. I loved teaching the ancient classical myths to my students, and this book sounds very original–something hard to pull off after all these years! Plus, this is something I can’t exactly read with my high school students, so I have to enjoy on my own time! Thanks for the chance to win–regardless, it’s been added to my TBR list on goodreads!

    I also followed and tweeted on Twitter and liked you on Facebook for the extra entries. Just look for me under either Kyreadinggirl or Ann Roberts!

  30. I love greek mythology and there have been so many books that have been released with different twists regarding mythology. Most of the ones I have came across have been YA. I love YA, but sometimes I just want that extra spice. This definitely sounds spicey, yes please🙂
