Unleash the gods!
This series started with a lot of "What if"'s. I was reading a text book, and there it was as a throwaway line - the aristocrats of Britain in the eighteenth century believed they were gods, it said. So what if some of them were gods? What if, somehow, the gods of Greece and Rome were reincarnated into dukes and marquesses?
I started writing.
Now, several books in, the series has really taken off! Mercury, aka Amidei, Comte d'Argento, has bought and opened a club in St. James's Street, the Pantheon Club. There, the gods and goddesses may meet, but the public has also been allowed to join. And shock - it's for men and women! People are flocking to the club, to see if it's as scandalous as some people say!

At the very least, she means to ensure her sister’s twins are raised properly. A task she suspects is beyond the duke, who wanders away at night, comes to dinner disheveled, and stirs desires she’s never felt before.
Marcus isn’t just the Duke of Lyndhurst. He is Mars, god of war, and his nightly dinners with Ruth—during which he allows her to ask him one question—are his only respite from his desperate struggle with the Titans.
Little does the drably dressed, socially inept woman realize she is a constant temptation to him—and he is losing the battle to resist. But if he allows her to break the chains around his heart, their love will make her a target in a fight to the death.
Book 6: Her Quicksilver Lover
Love knows no bounds, and keeps no secrets.
Instead, she finds the club’s walls shield Roman gods in human form. One of which she must keep at arm’s length at all costs—the club’s alluring, enigmatic owner, Amidei, Comte d’Argento. Otherwise known as Mercury.
Joanna catches Amidei’s attention long before she drops and shatters an expensive tea caddy. He knows she’s spying, but he never suspected she’d be his nemesis in human form—or that she would stir his strongest protective instincts.
Those instincts will be tested to the limit when an enemy strikes from an unexpected corner, threatening their lives. And Amidei will have to face every last one of his fears to protect the woman he has come to love.
