HEART OF THE PHOENIX
This is a great, seamless mix of romance and Greek mythology.
Arthur reveals just enough about
the complicated relationships of
Greek mythological characters to make them real without overwhelming the story. Tayla is a wonderful character, and it's a pleasure to root for her. Thaddeus is a gorgeous, honorable man, and the secondary characters
add just the right touch of humor
Thaddeus Delos is the son of a god sent to protect Tayla. Neither expects to fall in love with the other, but when fate and the gods step in, all things are possible.
