Melpomene, muse of Tragedy, has a celestial duty to mankind that no love has ever before challenged. But when a Scottish warrior she has always watched over sacrifices himself for another, she is torn from her path and ready to make her own sacrifice: She will defy fate and her father Zeus to make the ultimate sacrifice and change everything for one courageous Scot...

Rowan Stewart is ready and willing to lay down his life for his kinswoman and Queen, but when he awakens after a fatal blow with a beautiful woman crouching over him, he must struggle to understand his new place in his own displaced life. Driven by duty, Rowan strives to keep an oath that will tear him and Melpomene apart forever. But with her love and her life on the line, Melpomene isn't ready to let go. In a journey fraught with Greek Gods, Scottish politics, and fledgling desire, it's a race to see whether love really can conquer all... before it's too late.

"I love a story with unexpected twists, striking dialogue and happily ever after endings... Ms. Purington wove together the greatness of Scottish highlanders and Greek gods with seamless believability." ~Reviews by Aithne

"The thrusting of Greek gods into Scotland would at first seem like it would be jarring but it works. Melpomene's certainty that Rowan is her true love and Rowan's denial, despite his obvious attraction to her makes good tension." ~ Simply Romance Reviews
