Our Review:

Rich and imaginative, this story has depth, humor, and plenty of heat.
In the world of the Greek Pantheon, one must participate in the Rite of the Thirteen Nights by age thirty. Annie, an empathic Amazon, marches to her own tune when at all possible, but she is obligated to attend, since her thirtieth birthday is just around the corner. Tai is a half human, half Gargarean warrior, which is a less-than-desired parentage, his DNA deemed undesirable. However, when they meet in a run-up to the required mating ritual, each is taken with the other, and rules are broken in order for the selection process to put them together.
I enjoyed the characters, their chemistry, and the intrigue that surrounds their determination to be together – no matter what. Well done.
-Cary Morgan Frates

Book Description:
Annie’s always been different. An empathic Amazon, she hides her emotional anomaly beneath her legendary fighting skills. To avoid passing on her genetic disorder, she’s always avoided the Thirteen Nights Ritual—the annual breeding rite among the warrior races of the Greek Pantheon. Only months away from 30, she is now duty-bound to participate. When she meets Tai, a half-human warrior who revs her up beyond legal limits and nurtures the gentleness she’s had to keep secret, thirteen nights of pleasure don’t seem nearly enough.
   As a half human, Tai has survived by being faster, more lethal, and a whole lot smarter than his brethren. While the male warriors accept him for his achievements, the Amazons have never given him a second look. Until he meets Annie, whose smile is warm and real and whose body shudders with desire—for him. Determined to have her, he hacks into the Thirteen Nights database and rearranges the pairings to make Annie his breeding partner. Together, their strength and tenderness combust into pure love.
But Tai’s actions are forbidden under Amazon law, subject to a death. To stay together and alive, they must take on the Greek Pantheon and win.
