For fans of the Oracle of Delphi series…and for those who aren’t…
Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.
When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.
But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.
Conor exited the car as soon as he spotted us approaching. Within seconds, he was opening my door and waiting for me to climb inside.
“Ready to whisk her away even before I’ve had a chance to kiss her goodbye, Conor?” Liam said, handing the driver my violin case. He set his on the ground by our feet.
I saw Conor’s cheeks redden and it wasn’t from the cold. “Apologies. I’ll jus’ wait in the car then.”
“I’ll only be a minute,” I said, knowing I was blushing, too.
He studied us for a minute, then said, “O’ course, miss.”
Liam swept me into his arms the moment Conor’s door closed. My arms immediately wrapped around his neck, and nothing more needed to be said. Liam slanted his mouth over mine and brought our lips together.
At first, he was gentle. Our lips performed a slow rumba that was as intense as it was tender. His tongue was like a tease, begging for permission but not daring to enter even when permission was given. This went on for a minute or two, until I could hardly stand it another second and moaned out of frustration.
“Wha’ are you waitin’ for, Liam?” I whined against his mouth. He chuckled, but he understood what I wanted and he gave it to me.
The feel of Liam’s tongue sliding over mine was like an orgasm in itself. My brain shorted out and all I could do was just stand there and take all that he was giving me. He didn’t just kiss me either. He conquered me, took my freedom by force. The way his hands caressed my hips said he was my ruler now and submission was my only option. His blue eyes bore into mine, heightening the experience while his lips tried to persuade me to accept his invitation and spend the night with him. It would be worth it, his soft lips said. The best night of your life, his hands agreed. I moaned in anticipation and felt Liam’s arms enclose around me.
But just as I fell forever in love with Liam’s kiss, he pulled away.
A. Star is a fan of dirty passion. She likes to read it, and she damn sure likes to write it. Her first adult romance/fantasy novella is called Invasion, an alien romance about sacrifice.
Lover, Divine is the first release from the Mythos: Gods and Lovers series. Future releases under A. Star include, King, Desired (Mythos: Gods and Lovers #2), the Love & Steampunk series, the Purr, Inc. stories, and more.
