A tragic romance like no other!
As priestess to the Goddess Athena, Medusa's sole purpose is to serve. When she meets the handsome warrior guard Ariston, Medusa begins to question her duty to the Goddess. As time passes, Medusa finds herself falling for Ariston and when she is set free from her duties to Olympus she wastes no time in marrying her true love. Their time together is short lived with Ariston called off to war and when the truth of their union is revealed, jealousy consumes the Gods who threaten to come between the two young lovers.
Sasha Summers takes your breath away with a riveting story of love, loss and sacrifice in Medusa, A Love Story. Many of us have heard of Medusa in Greek mythology, but most of us automatically characterize her as a monster. This story shows a young and innocent woman in love who's cursed by the Gods in their selfishness and endures pain and heartbreak but is never broken. Medusa's character is loyal and pure of heart, it's easy to love this heroine and never see her as a monster. The love between Ariston and Medusa is the reason romances are written...their story is captivating and heart wrenching, I couldn't put it down (you'll have to read it to find out why).
Medusa, A Love Story is a beautifully written "forbidden romance" that pulls at your heartstrings and keeps you on edge. With a stellar romance, Gods as villains and wonderful imagery, it has all the elements to satisfy a voracious reader (like myself). It's the kind of story that leaves you breathless and impatiently waiting to devour next book. Whether you're a fan of Greek mythology or just love to read a true romance that whisks you away to another world, you'll be captured by Ms. Summer's allure.
