When Legendary Consultants placed Lyleia Naiad in her job as Executive Assistant to a high-powered billionaire, she was given one directive–do NOT fall in love with him. Given that he’s a demigod, a successful businessman, and handsome as sin, makes that a tall order for anyone. But as an ex-nymph, she has the unique ability to resist his god-like charms.
Or does she? More than a year later, Castor Dioskouri has managed to capture her heart, a feat no man, demigod, or god has ever managed. Given the reason she was hired, she’s kept her feelings to herself. Besides, Cas is still in love with his deceased wife from over a millennium ago, and Leia is a failed nymph who couldn’t protect her own spring.
But now, they must attend a werewolf mating ceremony together. An event where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes, inhibitions, and common sense.
Can Leia resist her heart and her boss? Or will she lose her pride, her job, and her mind trying?

I was given a gifted copy by Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review. Lyleia is an ex-nymph who works as Executive Assistant for a demigod called Castor. After more than a year working for him, she didn’t have any problem resisting his charms. Now she has to attend to a werewolf mating ceremony with her boss. Will she be able to resist Castor while the air is full of pheromones released during the mating? The story is short but funny and enjoyable. A quick reading for a couple of free hours. Being a short story, the characters are not very developed, just enough to understand what’s going on. I would definitely read the second part.
Lyleia may have lost her spring hundreds of years before, as well as the love of her sisters, but the nymph never lost her sense of duty, pride, humor or her rare ability to ignore the powerful charms of her boss, the demigod, Castor. Okay, two out of three abilities are intact, but after all, nymphs are sexual beings, and the man is smoking hot as well as clueless to her feelings. Castor goes through women like a shopaholic goes through money, because his heat still belongs to the wife he lost eons before. When Castor needs a companion to take to a werewolf wedding, he leaves Lyleia no choice but to go. What could be a nymph’s dream-come-true, turns into a heart-wrenching face to face with the evil were who cost Lyleia her spring. In a battle of good vs evil, can a demigod trump a powerful were? Will Lyleia need him to? Will their sizzling attraction be their death or the start of something eternal? Can you say, wow, Abigail Owen, you have done it, again?
