Love Spell, Jun 2001
Trying to make amends for all the trouble he caused mortals millenniums ago, Zeus with the aid of his wife Hera play matchmaker to mortal descendants of the Mount Olympus pantheon. Their first effort shockingly succeeded as they usually cause havoc when interfering, but Joy Taylor and Mark Hennessy seem like a match made in heaven, that is Greek heaven.
Zeus chooses Callie Gabriel, a distant offshoot of Callisto as target number two. However, before the Gods can intercede, Callie becomes involved with FBI Agent Armand Marceux, who is suffering from drug-induced amnesia caused by his enemies. Armand happens to come from Ares’ seed, which leads to Hera worrying that with the God War in his gene pool, this mortal cannot understand love. Zeus and Hera know they have a Herculean task ahead of them.
THE WARRIOR, the second "Sons of Olympus" tale, is an entertaining romance that brings the Ancient Greek mythos of interfering in mortal lives to the information age. The story line is amusing, filled with suspense, and provides an intriguing look at mythology. Readers will find this tale of immortal redemption quite unique and refreshing, and want to seek out the previous novel (THE TRICKSTER). The audience will anxiously await Kathleen Nance’s next story, THE SOUL SEEKER.
