The Demigod Complex The Demigod Complex by Abigail Owen is 99c! This paranormal romance came out last month and I’m so curious about it. It’s the first in a series that blends mythology with a workplace romance. It is on the shorter side, but I’ll probably buy it anyway for the catnippy setup. When Lyleia Naiad was head-hunted by Brimstone, Inc., for her job as Executive Assistant to a high-powered billionaire demigod, she was given one directive—do NOT fall in love with Castor Dioskouri. Doesn’t matter if he’s the son of Zeus and can electrify a room with a single glance. As an ex-nymph, she possesses a unique ability—a gift from the goddesses to protect nymphs from the randy gods—to resist her boss’s charms. Or so she thought. He insists she accompany him to an alpha wolf shifter mating ceremony, an event where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes…and inhibitions. Goddesses save her, because Castor has stolen into Lyleia’s heart, and she’s not so sure she can hold out much longer… This novella was previously self published but has undergone a complete re-edit. Scenes were added, things were changed, but the kissing still remains! Add to Goodreads To-Read List…

Enemies to Lovers passes through “friends” sometimes on the way to the HEA. So if you don’t like Friends to Lovers, what’s your preferred catnip? Amanda: Enemies to lovers. You mean like this? And I mean that enemies to lovers is my preferred catnip. Shana: For me, the opposite of Friends to Lovers is people who know they want one another, and don’t take 10 fucking years to figure it out. So… Of course, my own romantic relationship is a friends to lovers story, lol. Enemies to lovers isn’t my favorite trope either…why am I so high maintenance? Sneezy: Because you know what you WANT. Amanda: I tend to find Friends to Lovers setups don’t often have enough of a reason for the main couple to NOT be together. Shana: Anyway, my catnip is Arranged Marriages, and…
