A Touch of Greek (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 26, 2010 07:41PM
Description: Selfish and gorgeous Greek God Triton is cast out of Olympus after seducing Zeus’ mistress and can only gain reentry if he finds a woman who loves him for his kindness and selflessness, not his beauty. When the mortal Sophia – recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind – needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home. While defending Sophia from an unknown adversary, Triton’s protective instinct emerges. At the same time rival Gods do everything to doom him to failure. And even if Triton can win Sophia’s love, will he throw it away to return home, or will he lose his own heart to the only woman who truly sees him? A Touch of Greek is the first book in the humorous and sexy paranormal romance series Out of Olympus following the romantic adventures of four Gods: Triton, Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes.

Another amazing book by Lara Adrian. Hunter was a very different hero and Corinne has been through so much. To see them start to trust each other and believe in each other is a delight. Loved every second of it.

MsRomanticReads Thank you for the friendship add, Tina :) I'm so glad I discovered your books a few days ago. I've just devoured your Scanguards series and I loved it (especially Zane's story). Looking forward to your naughty gods next. Keep up the great work.

message 10: by Tina

Tina Folsom Kelly,
yes, it's funny, but readers really do connect with covers, and if it doesn't fit the genre, they won't buy the book.

I'm not really into Erotica, even though my romances are very hot. I love writing sex scenes, but for me there really has to be that emotional connection and a happy end. You don't always get that with Erotica.


message 9: by Kelly

Kelly Tina,
I didn't realize how important it is that a cover match it's genre so closely. I was wondering would you ever consider writing Erotica?

Nikoleta Tina wrote: "Hope you like it, Nikoleta. BTW, my Greek Gods aren't to be taken too seriously ... After all they are very naughty men ..."

According to Greek myths 'Naughty' was the main theme of their lives...
so it's a really good reason to take them "seriously"!!!

message 7: by Tina

Tina Folsom Hey Kelly, yes it's pretty hot; but if I put that one on the cover, all the retailers are just going to penalize me and think it's Erotica, when it's not.

message 6: by Kelly

Kelly Just got your e-mail showing the OTHER cover for your new book that you couldn't show online. I like both of them, but wow, the one that's not on the cover is VERY hot. Can't wait to read it!!!

message 5: by Tina

Tina Folsom Hope you like it, Nikoleta. BTW, my Greek Gods aren't to be taken too seriously ... After all they are very naughty men ...

Nikoleta Τhanks for the accept!!
I m so excited!!!
I got "A Touch of Greek" (Out of Olympus, #1)
as a gift and i cant wait to read it!!
As a Greek my self,i m really curious to see the myths again,in a different way...Kisses from Greece!!

Sangria Thanks for your friendship, Tina. :D
