Lure Of Obsession Tour Banner


Fated Mates meets Clash of the Titans!

Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.

Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.

Mel is the next target, but Nate’s determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her. 

And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.

The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

The premise of Muses coming together to inspire humankind with Guardians sent to protect them while a fanatical secret order tries to eliminate them is a genius idea and the reason why I wanted to read this book.  It didn’t disappoint!

Although they were mortal women only embodying the original Greek muses, each of her sisters had been chosen as a vessel—for reasons that were only clear to the gods themselves—to inspire the next generation of mankind. Together they’d worked and saved and pooled their money to buy the theater before it was marked for demolition, and together, they would restore it. The Theater of the Muses, Les Neufs Soeurs, would once again bring together the thinkers and artists and dreamers of the world. 

I enjoyed Mel’s and Nate’s witty and sexy repertoire. The sexual tension and mutual attraction is palpable and they definitely fit each other well as Muse and Guardian. I loved how the author explored Nate’s tragic past and how Mel was his catalyst to truly trust and love someone.

I look forward to reading about how the other Muses and their Guardians face the group that is trying to murder them. A fun and interesting read with lots of love, mystery and mythology.  Recommend highly!
