POISONED KISSES (4) by Stephanie Draven: Kyra, a nymph of the underworld, is desperate to stop her father Ares from obtaining a man forged into a hydra with poisonous blood. Kyra must find weapons dealer Marcos Kaisaris, who wants to save the world by providing weapons to the downtrodden. Kyra will either kill him or keep him locked away so her father can never find him. During their first confrontation, though, Kyra loses her immortality after Marcos’ blood burns her; during their second confrontation, she falls in love and is determined to save him. Draven uses mythology to come up with a gripping paranormal tale. The ancient gods provide perfect, fatally flawed characters to act as foils for this hero and heroine.
