Special Agent Armond Marceaux had no memory! He had been running on instinct for days until Callie Gabriel showed up. She obviously knew him though. She was pregnant with his child! Without letting her know of his memory loss, he made excuses to stay near her so he could learn more about himself. The more he learned, the less he liked himself and the more he cared for Callie.
Zeus and Hera were playing "Cupid". Long ago Hera had harmed a woman named Callisto. Hera was determined to make amends by bringing true love to one of Callisto's decedents, Callie Gabriel. Her mate was to be a decedent of Ares, Armond Marceaux.
Bad things happened to Gabriels who married. Not only to the bride, but to the whole family. Generations have proved it! So all members of the Gabriel family were independent, all Gabriels were females, and all Gabriels gave birth to only daughters! Therefore, Callie knew her unborn child was female and would not marry Armond. Besides, Armond's work (FBI) always came before her. He left twice, without saying good-bye, and disappeared for months!
At the same time, someone high in command of the Atlanta division of the FBI had betrayed Armond to one of his enemies. Armond's memory loss was due to experiments of DC-909c and psychic studies. They were watching him. As his memory returned, he and Callie became targets!
***** WOW! A lot going on in this story! I never had a dull minute. It was not choppy (as most are with so much happening). Instead, it flowed smoothly and kept me riveted! Recommended! *****

This is the first book I read in this new series by Nance and I found it to be enjoyable. The premise of the book was interesting- a new twist on Greek mythology- featuring Zeus and Hera, once king and queen of the "gods", as matchmakers. The characters were well portrayed, especially the hero Armond, the descendant of Ares, the god of war. The dialogue was done with humor, the action believable and the interaction between the gods an extra plus. Although as a whole it kept me entertained, the reason I did not give it a higher rating was that the book was not one of those "grab you by the throat and keep you hooked" kind of books. It lacked a certain intensity. But as a light, summer read it did it's job and kept me entertained. I will get the next in the series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Trying to make amends for all the trouble he caused mortals millenniums ago, Zeus with the aid of his wife Hera play matchmaker to mortal descendants of the Mount Olympus pantheon. Their first effort shockingly succeeded as they usually cause havoc when interfering, but Joy Taylor and Mark Hennessy seem like a match made in heaven, that is Greek heaven.
Zeus chooses Callie Gabriel, a distant offshoot of Callisto as target number two. However, before the Gods can intercede, Callie becomes involved with FBI Agent Armand Marceux, who is suffering from drug-induced amnesia caused by his enemies. Armand happens to come from Ares' seed, which leads to Hera worrying that with the God War in his gene pool, this mortal cannot understand love. Zeus and Hera know they have a Herculean task ahead of them.
THE WARRIOR, the second "Sons of Olympus" tale, is an entertaining romance that brings the Ancient Greek mythos of interfering in mortal lives to the information age. The story line is amusing, filled with suspense, and provides an intriguing look at mythology. Readers will find this tale of immortal redemption quite unique and refreshing, and want to seek out the previous novel (THE TRICKSTER). The audience will anxiously await Kathleen Nance's next story, THE SOUL SEEKER.

picked this up on a whim last night, and as soon as I started reading it I was hooked. I've loved mythology in general for years, and Greek/Roman mythology is the easiest to find, so I was intrigued by the premise Kathleen Nance set up with Zeus and Hera (with an original -- more human -- spin on their personalities that still fit with ancient myths about them) as matchmakers trying to atone for their sins of the past by giving the decendants of the numerous women Zeus dallied with the gift of true love (with marriage to a decendant of one of the sons of Olympus) to break the curse on their families that had resulted from his dalliance. However, the power of the king and queen of the gods is dwindling, and Hera plans to leave Zeus forever ...
'The Warrior' comes after 'The Trickster', and I'm about to go out to get that book today!

Zeus and his band of followers have been banished to Earth in punishment from the Titanic Oracle, the ruling council of their world. Ancient Earth seemed a paradise until man stopped worshiping them and technology usurped magic. Now Hera is a cosmetics queen named Harriet Peacock and Zeus is a successful businessman called Zeke Jupiter. As they attempt to atone for past misdeeds by uniting their descendants with a true love, they hope to break the unexpected legacy that damaged their family lines.
FBI Special Agent Armond Marceaux descends from Ares, the god of justice. Truly The Warrior, Armond dedicates his life to law enforcement. But now he suffers from amnesia as the result of being drugged following his capture by a rogue FBI agent. He has only instinct to guide him back to his secluded cabin in Louisiana, where he finds the beautiful Callie looking for him.
Callie Gabriel descends from Callisto, the only goddess to suffer permanent harm from Hera's jealousy. Callie inadvertently fills in many pieces to Armond's missing memory. She also announces that she is pregnant. But Gabriel women do not marry and they raise their children alone -- a legacy she's determined to follow. Armond quickly realizes that Callie's presence is a trigger for lost memories, and accompanies her back to New Orleans, hoping he can learn more.
Zeus and Hera are outraged to learn the wrong son of Olympus has designs on Callie. But a bet with Dion Backus, or Dionysus the god of wine, quickly leads to their support of this unlikely couple. As the gods' machinations lead to quirky twists, Callie and Armond flee danger and seek answers together. Perhaps this isn't such an impossible love match after all.
