A Touch of Greek

Out of Olympus, #1

Triton is the Greek God of Seafarer's and Sailors, and the son of Poseidon. That doesn't help him any though when he gets caught with Zeus's current mortal `plaything', Danae. Zeus punishes Triton for his indiscretion by offering Triton two choices. Choice 1: be cast out into the human world, unable to return until he can find a mortal woman who will love him for himself, and not his godly good looks. Choice 2: be sent to Hades. Triton is too absorbed in his own thoughts to hear the two choices though and so looks to his friends Eros and Hermes. Eros holds up 1 finger, Hermes holds up 2 fingers. Which one should he choose? He ends up taking Eros's advice and chooses option #1. He's shocked to learn that not only will he be sent to the human world, but modern day America, where good looks are everything. He's also stripped of his godly powers. Triton had been in the mortal world for over a century, before meeting Sophia, who takes an almost instant dislike to him. It isn't until Sophia suffers a fall that causes her to lose most of her sight that Triton gets his chance to woo her. Triton takes the place of Sophia's hired nurse in order to get close to her. The closer he gets, the more he falls in love with her, and the more he realizes that her accident wasn't an accident, someone's out to kill Sophia.

Once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down. Romance, suspense and humor, all rolled into one. If you've never read Tina Folsom, you don't know what you're missing. Pick up 1 of her books today, you'll be glad you did.

Book Blurb for A Touch of Greek

Selfish and gorgeous Greek God Triton is cast out of Olympus after seducing Zeus' mistress and can only gain reentry if he finds a woman who loves him for his kindness and selflessness, not his beauty. When the mortal Sophia - recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind - needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home.

While defending Sophia from an unknown adversary, Triton's protective instinct emerges. At the same time rival Gods do everything to doom him to failure. And even if Triton can win Sophia's love, will he throw it away to return home, or will he lose his own heart to the only woman who truly sees him?
