Writing as Marlie May
“Legally Blonde meets Gladiator in this volcanically hot time travel romp through the streets of ancient Pompeii.” ~ Laney Kaye, Author of HAWAIIAN HURRICANE
Twenty-first century Greek goddess Pandia is shaking in her Jimmy Choos. A few weeks ago, she traveled back in time to attend a party, where she accidentally suggested Julius Caesar abandon politics for gardening. Her father, Zeus, summons her to modern Olympus after he discovers her meddling eliminated the month of July. To teach her the importance of fate, he strips Pandia’s goddess powers and sentences her to a stint of mortality in ancient Pompeii.
Pandia refuses to let her punishment get her down. She’ll do her time, leave destinies untouched, and be home in time for her next shift at the local animal shelter. Instead, she’s mistaken for a prostitute and arrested for inciting a riot. Sentenced to serve as a massage therapist in Pompeii’s gladiator school, she’s assigned to Caladus, a gladiator whose washboard abs test her vow to remain uninvolved.
To escape Pompeii, Pandia must prove she respects mortals’ fates. But she’s falling for Caladus, and her time’s running out: Mt. Vesuvius is rumbling.
Twist of Fate guarantees laugh-out-loud moments, plenty of swoony gladiator romance, on-the-page heat, no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a happily ever after.
