He’s forged from heaven. She’s promised to hell.
Professor Maximus Kane can no longer deny his passion for his stunning yet mysterious student, Kara Valari. But surrendering to their desires carries more consequences than just violating the Alameda University conduct codes. Kara has defied her destiny. Higher directives have been violated. Now there’s hell to pay.
It’s a crisis for which there seems no solution, until the explosive secrets of Maximus’s bloodline are exposed. Despite all his doubts and fears, Maximus has no choice but to accept help from his enigmatic father, which means coming to terms with his heritage and embracing a bizarre new world of gods and demons. Because somewhere in that world—in the strange and sordid secrets surrounding his past—is the key to protecting Kara’s future. Nothing has ever meant more to him than saving the treasure of her life and the fire of her heart.
While earth’s lower realms seek payback for Kara’s transgressions, Kara finds a new ally in a surprising place: the Valari matriarch herself. Beneath the scrutiny of the world press, Veronica orchestrates a plan to protect her daughter by doing what she does best—shining the spotlight on her. But by her side, Maximus can’t escape the glare of the paparazzi.
Can they buy time and blind their enemies with Kara’s fame? Or will Hollywood’s new “it” couple and their forbidden love incite more vengeance than they’d ever bargained for?

Max and Kara bk 2
Another great one with more questions than answers! Although I didn’t get the answers I wanted, I can’t wait to get them in the next book. These books are hot romance with Greek mythology. Kara and Max relationship deepens with lots of twists and turns thrown in.
Hot supernatural love!
A fantastic continuation of the sexy supernatural romance between the beautiful demon Kara and the hunky demigod Maximus. After the heart-stopping ending in the first book, our couple is coming to terms with the revelations that will forever change their lives. Max finally has some answers about his past with more revealed as this story unfolds. Kara is hopeful her situation will have a happy conclusion as her mother sets out to achieve the impossible and sister Kell is thrown under the bus. That bus being the nasty demon and Kara's sorta ex, Arden. Max and Kara are determined to stay together at all costs and have some help from the elusive god of gods, Zeus. This is a terrific romance with suspense and danger as supernatural beings jockey for supremacy and one couple in the middle of a decades old curse. It's thrilling and white hot as the super sexy couple love and live for each other with the threat of being forced apart at every turn. I can't wait for the exciting conclusion to this fantastic romance. A must read!
Maximus & Kara- two worlds blended to perfection
This is the second book in the Blood of Zeus series and it is not a standalone. It picks up where the first book left off and once again readers a spun into a world that melds the past and present so beautifully with Greek mythology thrown in for good measure.
Theirs was a love that was never supposed to be but the heart wants what the heart wants and the rest of the world, underworld included, be darned. Maximus is learning about his parentage and that is bringing about some amazing discoveries. Kara is making some concessions to appease her mother so that she can be with Maximus which thrusts the two of them into the limelight. However, is Kara’s mother doing it for virtuous reasons? I think not! Regardless, this is one tour de force created by two stellar writing dynamos that will have you on the edge of your seat as the drama unfolds. This is not one to be missed! I am on bated breath counting down until the third book is due to release and I have a feeling that I will want more from these dynamic secondary characters that I hope Ms. Wild and Ms. Payne will consider penning in the future. I highly recommend this series! I volunteered to read a copy of this book.
