Overview

"A Touch of Greek is a fun, blazing hot read that will have you asking, "Where's MY Greek God?" Tina Folsom's super sexy romances will be your favorite guilty pleasure!" --- Stephanie Bond, Author of the #1 Kindle bestselling romantic comedy Stop the Wedding!

Recipe for a good romance: hunky Greek Gods, mischief galore, a pinch of humor, stir with lots of fun characters!

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 health care 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?

My favorite part had to be when Triton tries to explain what's going on to Sophia. His complicated and confusing story made me smile. It all moves along nicely. I read most of it in one night because I couldn't get enough of it. I was pretty giddy about their relationship. It's some very sexy brain candy. Tina Folsom, you may have me hooked.

A Touch of Greek is a well written story that has the reader laughing at the antics of Triton and the various Gods, cheering for Sophia when she resists Triton, and turning the pages to find out what comes next. I was impressed how the author brought the topic of Greek mythology ... Triton and Sophia are well developed characters ... A Touch of Greek is a thoroughly delightful book! I loved seeing traditional Greek gods in modern settings.

    Excellent weekend read!!!

    Tina Folsom has has become one of my favorite writters recently. After just finishing her Scanguard Vampires series I purchased A Touch of Greek hoping for another excellent read. She didn't disappoint me. This is another page turning storyline containing characters you just want to keep reading about. Can't wait for the next one in this series. :)

    Loved it!

    It had tons of romance, I liked the greeks gods in there, and it is set in modern time. I am really liking Tina Flosom's books, I have read the two Venice Vampyre novellas and they we great a little short. I think that is why I liked this one so much b/c it was longer.

    great read!!

    Touch of Greek was well written. I didn't want to put it down. The story was set up well with "real" people in real life situations. My test for a romance is could I be in the heroine's place. This book passed wonderfully. It's a great read.

    Enjoyable read! by needleworker23

    Combining the facts of mythology with the fiction of enduring romance yields a story full of plot twists and turns that, in the end, is as compelling and rewarding as Triton's.. ageless love for Sophia.

    Hott Gods!

    I couldn't put this book down! Tina Folsom kept me totally engaged by incorporating some of my favorite elements to a story; Greek Mythology, Hott Gods, Humor, Gods that are Hott, Suspense, and Steamy Romance with Hott Gods! I'm definately looking forward to reading the next in the Out of Olympus Series!

    Could not put my nook down.

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat. It leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Wonderful read anytime day or night. I can not wait for the next book in the "A Greek God Romance-Out of Olympus Series." I would love it if the author would complete the story about Triton and Sophia. Telling what happens after the end of this book.(I do not want to give the plot or details of the book away)

    Sexy, funny take on the Greeks

    Very steamy read, sexy, hot, and laugh out funny at times. The Gods are hilarious, and the humans aren't far behind. Great love story.
