Description from the publisher:
For fans of the Oracle of Delphi series...and for those who aren't...

Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste, Liam Argyros, shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever. 

This is the first book in the Mythos, Gods, and Lovers series from Ms. A. Star.  They will need to be read in order.  Though this is the first in the series, it is tightly related to the Oracle of Delphi series created by her alter-ego Diantha Jones.

Extremely well-done prequel to an established series.  It would have been so easy to fall into the trap of believing the reader already knew the characters from the previous books.  Since I’m a first-time reader of this author, I can assure you that she has not made this error.

I love Siabhon.  Ms. Star did an admirable job of providing Siabhon a voice that I swear I could hear whispering to me as I read with her adorable Irish accent.  Liam/Apollo may have lived for four thousand years, but he has been made approachable and relatable.

I am looking forward to reading King, Desired.  Do you suppose the King is Zeus, King of the Gods?  Gah, I hope so!  His wife, Hera, is a twisted, little bitch who would be fun to write/read.
