For three long years after her husband died, Nora Katsaros was on the run. And now that she’s finally found a place to call home, she’s not about to let anyone stand in the way of raising her daughter in peace – not even Charon, the womanizing, drop-dead-gorgeous former god who works at her restaurant.
Unfortunately, Charon’s love-‘em-and-leave-‘em lifestyle brings trouble to Nora’s doorstep when a jealous husband shows up looking for a fight. When the man threatens Nora’s safety, Charon reacts with violence and soon finds himself under arrest. At the same time, the confrontation causes Nora to manifest the powers of an ancient Greek Fury.
Struggling to adapt to her new life as a goddess of vengeance, Nora is desperate to find a way to make the assault charges against Charon disappear before bad publicity destroys her livelihood and the authorities look too closely at his past. When a friend suggests a way to deprive the prosecution of its key witness and keep the case from going to trial, Nora is forced to consider the unthinkable – a marriage of convenience to the accused!
