Once one of the greatest heroes Ancient Greece had ever known, Argos is a far cry from the immortal warrior he used to be. After five hundred years of captivity, he is finally free—but a curse from a goddess has left him woefully mortal. In order to become a hero again, he’ll need the help of the gods and the seductive nymph who saved his life.
The only woman who can help him…
Claire Winters is definitely not a nymph, despite the assumptions of the half-naked man whose life she saved. Taking care of a delusional man while a storm rages is not what she planned – especially not as she gets ready to open her dream restaurant. She doesn’t have time for the tall tales of her handsome rescue. Yet, here she is.
When it turns out Argos’s claims are real, Claire finds herself thrown deep into a hidden and ancient world. Now, the two strangers must rely on each other to survive. Together they will face the gods, and the fiery attraction between them, as they work to reunite Argos with his ancient powers. Will strength and wit be enough to protect them? Or will love prove to be the most powerful weapon of all?
HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO is the first novel in the ORDER OF OLYMPUS series. A sexy, action-packed romance series based on Greek Mythology and set in the modern world. Ancient heroes never looked this good.
Nothing good befalls the children of Zeus. At least, that’s what Adonis “Don” Rallis believes. To protect those he loves, he ran away to the edge of the world. In Alaska, not even the gods can find him, but apparently, demigods can.
As the daughter of Aphrodite, Quinn Perry imagined a reunion with Adonis as something out of an epic romance novel. But the man she finds in Alaska is practically a stranger. They once had an unbreakable bond, until Adonis disappeared without word or reason. Nearly a century later, Quinn has found him, but she doesn’t come bearing good news.
A war is coming and her fate is tied to it. Before the battle can take her away, she has a week to reconnect with the one that got away.
One week to make him listen. One week to fall back in love. One week until they must say their final goodbye.
Daring the Demigod is a novella set in the Order of Olympus series. You do not have to read any previous novels in the series to read this novella.
