Carpus Democritus Led his men to victory over the Persians though knowing that his talisman from the god Poseidon was part of the victory. When a storm suddenly comes upon his ship Carpus is swept over board and into the arms of Hesiod one of Poseidon's
sons. Hesiod is charged to retrieve the Aquamarine from Carpus though the only was to retrieve it is to be gifted with it since it cannot be taken by force.
Hesiod plans to seduce Carpus into gifting him with the Aquamarine; he didn't expect to fall in love with the mortal.
What will Hesiod do will he betray Carpus or will Love win out?
I enjoyed reading Two If By Sea. It had adventure and love in it and I will indeed check out others title by this author.
Having just led his men to victory over the Persians, Greek sea commander Carpus knows the victory does not belong just to him, but also to the aquamarine he wears around his neck. The stone, originally a gift from Poseidon the sea god to Carpus' grandfather, is the most valuable item Carpus owns. But the sea god has always regretted giving away the stone, and when a storm rises from the ocean depths, Carpus knows who's behind it. Poseidon, come to steal back what he freely gave decades before.
But Carpus is wrong. It's not Poseidon who carries him from the sea and gives him more intense pleasure than he's ever felt. It's Hesiod, Poseidon's son, a merman sworn to seduce the stone away from Carpus. Or die trying.
