Raven Hunter, a musical prodigy, flees to the Hawaiian Islands to pick up the pieces after her marriage to her manager collapses. Instead, she experiences extraordinary and unsettling events that are beyond her understanding.
Living in paradise, marine biologist, Finn Taylor has the unconscious but effortless ability to understand the needs of the animals he cares for. His playboy lifestyle is most men’s fantasy. That is, until the night he meets the shy and elusive new island resident. Suddenly his life no longer feels like his own.
The attraction is undeniable. However, vastly contrasting lives, peculiar dreams, and an unbelievable proclamation that they could be the direct descendants of Poseidon and Apollo threaten to divide them forever. Will they accept their destiny and begin the quest of a lifetime or will they remain in their comfortable yet separate existence?
I wanted to write a series and I wanted it to be paranormal. That’s all I knew. I wrote down a list of possible ideas but felt the whole witches, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves was a bit overdone. I decided on the Greek gods because their stories are just so incredible and crazy! I mean really Zeus literally had sex with everyone. I also liked the idea of a modern timeframe and the idea that adults could have adventures not just the Harry Potter’s of the world. So, it kind of all came together but what would be the dilemma? Well, what if no one believed in the Greek gods as being real? What if they were just weird stories you read about and only cult’s followed it as some sort of wacky religion? I wanted it to be like you or I being told we were the descendant of a Greek god and how we might respond to that. Not only did we have to believe it but we also had to get strangers to believe they were part of it too. And so began book one. This is the second complete book I’d ever written and was lucky to be picked up by the wonderful small press publisher, The Wild Rose Press. Working with an editor was challenging, in only that things you felt were extremely important to the story but not be so to them. Also, suggestions of keeping this or that secret were also wonderful and helpful. The only thing I wish I’d been allowed to include was a longer Prologue that explained the Greek gods, who they were and what their story was a little better. Overall, I think it’s a wonderful beginning to the series and yes, you’re supposed to be a little perplexed about what’s going on because you are going on this quest too!
