Herculeia the Hero: A Monstrously Mythic Romance Part 2 (Paperback)
When I embarked on my rebound rodeo cruise, the last place I expected to end up was on hot-bod monster island. Not that I'm complaining. The views are fantastic and the impressive amenities offered by my hosts have made it easy to come back for more.
10/10 would recommend.
I'm starting to think there's some truth to this whole "mate-bond" thing-if the murderous rage I feel whenever anyone threatens what's mine is any indication.
Scary Leia is ready to throw hands... or claws... or tentacles.
Now my ride or die is stuck here with me, and our enemies are closer than we think. My men believe they can't be heroes, but they've already proven there's more to them than meets the eye.
I intend to clear their names if it's the last thing I do. Olympus is about to learn, there is no monster greater than a bad bish like me.---
Please note: This is book 2 in a duet. You will want to read The 12 Hunks of Herculeia first.
Herculeia the Hero is a medium-dark rom-com loosely based on the 12 Labors of Heracles, with many ridiculous liberties taken. And before my fellow history nerds get their togas in a bunch, I am aware that Hercules/Herculeia is the Roman spelling (it gets addressed in the book, trust.)
This book is meant for readers 18 and over.
This series includes:
- MM (loads of it - with their own relationship arcs)
- Multiple POV
- Cliffy in book 1
Possible triggers in this series (please see inside book and author's website for more details):
- Sweary dialogue
- Naughty irreverent humor
- An overly possessive, slightly unhinged group of men
- Very spicy extracurricular activities (please see inside book for more details)
- Light threat of violence with a knife
- Trauma related to past death in the family, a bad breakup (with cheating), and a magical shipwreck
- Ongoing familial betrayal involving lying and gaslighting
- Sloot-shaming (from the Big Bad)
- Snakes (one of the men is a Hydra, so he has 9 snake heads and forked tongues, and various other creatures have snakes elements to their bodies)
- Signature weirdness and medium-dark elements
- Greek myths with many ridiculous liberties taken
In general, please do not read this if you own pearls to clutch, or if you regularly ask to speak to the manager, as you and I will probably not get along.
