She was the face that launched a thousand ships,
The fierce beauty at the center of Olympus,
And she was never ours to claim.
*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Helen, Achilles, and Patroclus that's as sinful as it is sweet.*
When Achilles Kallis's mother fell out of favor in Olympus, he vowed that he'd do whatever it took to claw his family's way back into the inner circle. Now that the former Ares is gone and the coveted role has opened to anyone who has the strength to claim it, he and his partner, Patroclus Fotos, plan to both compete and double their odds of winning the title. Neither expect the infamous beauty Helen Kasios to be part of the prize...or for the sparks that fly when the three of them reunite after so many years apart.
Zeus may have decided Helen is his to give to any brute who wins the role of Ares, but she has her own plans. She enters into the competition as a middle finger to the meddling Thirteen, effectively vying for her own hand in marriage.
Unfortunately, there are competitors who aren't thrilled with Helen's little stunt, and they'd rather see her dead than become the next Ares. The only people she can trust are the ones she can't quite keep her hands off—Achilles and Patroclus. But even they might not be strong enough to help her face the worst Olympus has to throw at them...
