Imagine a world where demigods, nymphs, and shifters are real, and they do ordinary things as humans. Imagine an office romance between a nymph on the run plus a demigod who doesn’t want to fall in love. If you can imagine such a thing, then meet Leia and Castor. Leia is a nymph who lost her spring and her family because a wolf didn’t know how to handle rejection. Castor is the son of Zeus, who lost his wife. Leia is Castor’s executive assistant who is trying to resign but just can’t bring herself to do so. Unbeknownst to Leia, Castor is aware and is doing everything in his power to prevent her resignation. As a result, she accompanies Castor to a mating ceremony where both of their lives change.
The chemistry between Leia and Castor can have you seeing stars. Getting their backstories while showing how they become the characters you know and fall for is fascinating. Greek mythology is seamlessly weaved into modern-day, and Abigail Owen’s execution of this, for me, was flawless. I have not read a story based on Castor, although I am aware of his story. I am interested to see where this series goes, and I’m so fascinated to see if one specific character gets a story. If so, I hope Leia and Castor are there!
