Book Description

NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY Bestselling Author Tina Folsom presents: A Touch of Greek (Out of Olympus #1)

Selfish and gorgeous Greek God Triton is cast out of Olympus after seducing Zeus' mistress and can only gain reentry if he finds a woman who loves him for his kindness and selflessness, not his beauty. When the mortal Sophia - recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind - needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home.

While defending Sophia from an unknown adversary, Triton's protective instinct emerges. At the same time rival Gods do everything to doom him to failure. And even if Triton can win Sophia's love, will he throw it away to return home, or will he lose his own heart to the only woman who truly sees him?

A Touch of Greek is the first book in the humorous and sexy paranormal romance series Out of Olympus following the romantic adventures of four Gods: Triton, Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes.

Review

USA Today has called Tina Folsom an e-book rock star!

.. a well written story that has the reader laughing at the antics of Triton and the various Gods, cheering for Sophia when she resists Triton, and turning the pages to find out what comes next ... thoroughly delightful... 5 stars --Sugarbeat's Books

.. felt totally connected with the characters. ... a good book is one that I could emotionally relate too and this one did it all the way through to the end... hot steamy scenes had me wanting to turn my heat down to cool off --Book Lover's Hideaway

Not only is the romance beautiful, the erotic moments HOT, and the plot intense, but her writing is so easy to read and flows perfectly.  This is a story that will leave you with a smile on your face and a glow in your heart. --Fade into Fantasy

Tina Folsom never ceases to amaze me with her writing. A Touch of Greek is brilliant! I love to read a book that holds my attention and one that plays out in my head like a movie, this book has done that and more. --Bitten by Paranormal Romance

... an amazing job, merging paranormal and mythology into a contemporary setting and made it into something very appealing and believable.... absolute joy ...I found my self laughing, crying, and even getting very angry. --Escape Between the Pages

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and sexy Greek god romance December 24, 2010
By PMBL
Format:Kindle Edition
Tina Folsom's new series takes a lighter turn from her Scanguards Vampires series, but still maintains the sexy alpha male hero, independent heroine, hot romance, and good balance between story and sex I've come to expect and appreciate in her books.

In A Touch of Greek, Triton, the philandering son of Poseidon, is stripped of his powers and sent to Earth to learn a lesson in love. With the assistance of his friend Dionysus a plan is hatched for him to prove that he isn't just a selfish scamp and to hopefully earn his way back into Olympus. Then he meets Sophia, recently blinded by a seemingly freak accident and struggling to convert an inherited house into a B&B while trying to outmaneuver her greedy and malicious cousin. Triton takes this opportunity to meet Zeus's challenge but soon his plans take a different turn as his attraction to Sophia grows. Maybe Triton is capable of love after all.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed Folsom's characters. Triton is a likable scamp and the interaction and banter between him and his friends Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes contributed to the lighter and more humorous feel of this book. I've always enjoyed the secondary characters in Tina's other books and this book was no different.

Though A Touch of Greek is lighter fare than her vampire series, it doesn't skimp on the romance one bit. Tina does romance and does it well. There is plenty of emphasis on building the connection between the characters and the eventual sex scenes are open-door and sizzling hot. Though I labeled this an erotic paranormal romance because the sex scenes are explicit, I think you could consider it to be the sexier end of a regular paranormal romance.

A Touch of Greek is the first novel by Tina Folsom that I have had the pleasure of reading, and I must say... I loved this book!

Even though this book is HOT at times, the erotica doesn't take over the romance that Tina writes. Which, by the way, is simply beautiful. Sophia and Triton face outward challenges that are both earthly and godly, while at the same time, battling issues within themselves. The intense situations and emotional trials kept me turning pages at a steady pace.

Unlike some erotic romances that I have read, A Touch of Greek had an interesting and deeply thought out plot. The story intertwined with the romance was fresh and original, and the characters were easy to relate with. Yes, even Triton. Even though he is a God, he has real issues to deal with.

The erotic portions of the book were done with class and taste. Tina incorporated steamy scenes into her book without taking over the story or making it sound like a porn show. They were very well written and made the book better, rather than worse.

A Touch of Greek was a very pleasant read. Tina Folsom's writing flowed well and kept me interested from start to finish. Not only is the romance beautiful, the erotic moments HOT, and the plot intense, but her writing is so easy to read and flows perfectly. This is a story that will leave you with a smile on your face and a glow in your heart. I look forward to reading more of Tina's books, especially others in the "Out of Olympus" series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great series! October 10, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So happy to have found this writer, as she writes very well written romance books!! -Including this one, which is a wonderful start to the Out of Olympus series.

I especially enjoyed Triton essentially being knocked off his high horse ;) and having his ego go down a few notches, when Sophia turned him down (when they first met). She became his mission in a sense, to find out what is so different about her, in comparison to other women (who would love nothing more than to throw themselves at him). Sophia refers to him as a "Himbo", a male bimbo, which seemed to really get under Triton's skin.

It was very fun to watch Triton change his way of thinking as he fell in love with Sophia, and likewise for Sophia. Even if in a sort of sneaky way at first. They had a great connection, and their love seemed perfect. :)

Another great book with plenty of fun, romance, and great chemistry!

5.0 out of 5 stars More please! December 7, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've always been a fan of Greek Gods. So when I was browsing Amazon and came across this book I was elated. Now that I've read the book I'm even more so.

Sophia has no time for handsome men. They lie and cheat and leave her. All she really has time for anyway is renovating the home her Aunt left her. She's turning it into a B&B so that she can keep it and hopefully, pay the mortgage. When she accidentally falls down the stairs and detaches her retina's she needs someone to help.

Triton, son of Poseidon is just the handsome man Sohpia's talking about. He's the kind of man -er God that does just that. He sleeps with any woman he can get his hands on. So when he happens upon one of Zeus' he's stripped of his Godly powers and sent to the mortal world until he can find a women to love him for who he is not what he looks like. Easier said then done.

I really enjoyed this book. It was playful, fun and entertaining. There were several parts that I couldn't help but laugh out loud with. I found myself trying to sneak in a few pages at work here and there. It was hard for me to put down because I just wanted to know what was next.

One thing I sort of wished for was a little more of a confrontation with Sophia's cousin. I don't want to give anything away but I felt like there was something more that was deserving with that outcome. Nonetheless, it didn't detract from the story.

This might seem odd but what I actually found enjoyable was the fact that the author was not afraid of cursing. To be honest, I hear it all day and when I read supplemental words instead of them it just seems out of place and not quite right. So that fact that the author used them made this feel real to me.

I was really able to connect with the characters.
