"Amusing and filled with suspense"
Trying to make amends for all the trouble he caused
mortals millenniums ago, Zeus with the aid of his wife Hera
plays matchmaker to mortal descendants of the Mount Olympus
pantheon. Their first effort shockingly succeeded, as they
usually cause havoc when interfering, but Joy Taylor and
Mark Hennessy seem like a match made in heaven, that is
Zeus chooses Callie Gabriel, a distant offshoot of
Callisto as target number two. However, before the Gods
can intercede, Callie becomes involved with FBI Agent
Armand Marceux, who is suffering from drug-induced amnesia
caused by his enemies. Armand happens to come from Ares'
seed, which leads to Hera worrying that with the God War in
his gene pool, this mortal cannot understand love. Zeus
and Hera know they have a Herculean task ahead of them.
THE WARRIOR, the second 'Sons of Olympus' tale, is an
entertaining romance that brings the Ancient Greek mythos
of interfering in mortal lives to the information age. The
story line is amusing, filled with suspense, and provides
an intriguing look at mythology. Readers will find this
tale of immortal redemption quite unique and refreshing,
and want to seek out the previous novel (THE TRICKSTER).
The audience will anxiously await Kathleen Nance's next
story, THE SOUL SEEKER.

Callie Gabriel, a fiercely independent vegetarian chef, manages her own restaurant and stars in a cooking show with a devoted following. Though she knows men only lead to heartache, she can't help wanting to break through Armond Marceux's veneer of casual elegance to the primal desires that lurk beneath. Armond returns from an undercover FBI assignment a broken man, his memories stolen by the criminal he sought to bring in. His mind can't remember Callie or their night of wild lovemaking, but his body can never forget the feel of her curves against him. And even though Callie insists she doesn't need him, Armond needs her--for she is the key to stirring not only his memories, but also his passions.
