For three long years after her husband died, Nora Katsaros was on the run. And now that she’s finally found a place to call home, she’s not about to let anyone stand in the way of raising her daughter in peace – not even Charon, the womanizing, drop-dead-gorgeous former god who works at her restaurant.
Unfortunately, Charon’s love-‘em-and-leave-‘em lifestyle brings trouble to Nora’s doorstep when a jealous husband shows up looking for a fight. When the man threatens Nora’s safety, Charon reacts with violence and soon finds himself under arrest. At the same time, the confrontation causes Nora to manifest the powers of an ancient Greek Fury.
Struggling to adapt to her new life as a goddess of vengeance, Nora is desperate to find a way to make the assault charges against Charon disappear before bad publicity destroys her livelihood and the authorities look too closely at his past. When a friend suggests a way to deprive the prosecution of its key witness and keep the case from going to trial, Nora is forced to consider the unthinkable – a marriage of convenience to the accused!
About the Author
Nicola R. White is no stranger to the fantastic. Although there are no Furies in her family tree (that she knows of), she comes from a small city on the east coast of Canada where ghost stories and superstitions abound. She has worked on movie sets, as a bartender, in a lighthouse, and as a lawyer, and though she’s never been an exotic dancer like her character, Alex Hughes, she does know how to pole dance.
She has always been fascinated by the strange and morbid, and often stays up too late reading books that give her nightmares. She believes truth is stranger than fiction, and just a few of her heroes are Buffy, Dana Scully, and Xena.
Nicola is a member of Romance Writers of America and Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, and is an active member and supporter of the award-winning Romance Divas website and online forum.
