Inside the heart of every warrior breathes the soul of a hero--even within The Heart of War.

Meet Ares God of War is the greatest Warrior the world has ever known, he's also 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' island is interrupted when Magdalena MacLeod a brash and sometimes manipulative Fey washes up on Ares' island after believing she's been shipwrecked. There is no wreck and her memory of events is sketchy at best. 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 the Great Horned God for 200 years. As Ares and Alena grow closer discord erupts on the island as his head woman, Kat, plots to get rid of Alena and the Olympians plot to use her in their endeavor to discover who killed Artemis. Ares will have to choose between his Divinely Dysfunctional Family, his pride, and Alena before dueling to the death with the God of the Forest.

Come along for an epic adventure of erotica, steamy romance, and drama in this Modern Day Greek Tragedy. Battle Ancient Gods and Fall in Love along side Ares God of War and Alena MacLeod. Theirs is a love that will rock the world from the heights of Olympus to the Celtic moors.

  1. I don't know but I think that Elizabeth and Darcy would have to be on my list. But I loved that you highlighted some of the classic mythological relationships.


  2. Well, mine's not so historical as pop culturish...but I still think the love affair between Buffy and Angel was incredible and tragic.

  3. How about Lucy and Desi?

  4. I hemmed and hawed over Lucy and Desi! But I was already a little leery that people wouldn't remember Bogey & Bacall or Tracy & Hepburn. There are so many great love affairs to choose from narrowing it down to 10 was difficult. :)

  5. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth definately!!! But what about Persus and Andromida? Or Tristian and Isolde? There are so many lovers we read about, but I love happy ending so I'll go with Elizabeth and Darcy!! LOL!!

  6. Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind!
