Love 'em and leave 'em. That's always been Apate's motto. The Olympian goddess of trickery doesn't have time for entanglements, romantic or otherwise. And she sure as hell doesn't have time for regret.
But when Thurston University student Siobhan Elliot goes missing and the human cops start sniffing around, Apate's dubious past catches up with her. Now it's only a matter of time until Jimmy, her latest conquest—who also happens to be Siobhan's ex—finds out it’s her fault. To cover her tracks, Apate pays a visit to the Elliots, using her powers of illusion to pose as their daughter and convince them everything’s fine. Lying is easy. Confronting the consequences of her actions, however, will prove to be much harder than Apate expected.
To find her redemption, Apate knows it’s time to come clean. But the truth could cost her the only love she’s ever known.
About the Author
S.L. Stacy is the author of the Amazon bestselling Reborn series, including the novels Reborn, Relapse, and Reclaim, and two novellas, Revenge and Rectify. Her stories blend the allure of paranormal romance with the adventure of science fiction, but she prefers more nuanced endings over the straightforward HEA. She loves dark, tragic antiheroes, a la Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries) and Julian (The Forbidden Game). Her favorite authors include L.J. Smith, Karen Marie Moning, J.K. Rowling, Orson Scott Card, Kelly Creagh, Cassandra Clare, and Sarah J. Maas. She is currently hard at work on the next book in the Reborn series (when she isn't watching Riverdale).
