Synopsis from Goodreads:

This is the first part in The Goddess Redemption Series. A Paranormal Romance Erotica.

In this installment of the Redemption series, a cruel twist of fate causes the goddess of the hunt, Artemis, to take the life of her lover, Orion, on the day of their betrothal. As punishment, Zeus locks her away in a stone prison, vowing that she would always search for love and never find it, that her stubbornness and anger rule her and that his death lay at her feet. He strips her of her power and knowledge and casts her in stone. Her punishment is swift and severe. The goddess of love has other designs for the Huntress and works out a plan for Artemis to redeem herself and come home. What entails is a story of redemption, a story of true change, and a tale of a desire that burns feverishly in every heart. But there is also a deeper lesson to be learned along the journey. Great power should be shown great respect.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Lockheart gives one hell of a twist to Greek mythology with this one. She combines the well-known myths surrounding Artemis, takes them and runs a couple dozen extra miles. I was captivated by her unique premise right from the get-go. She uses allusion to create a sense of completeness and to illustrate this new world for her audience.

Lockheart backs up her unique story with some intriguing characters. She puts a great deal of effort into developing her characters without detracting from her storyline. They were the type of individuals that you could simultaneously feel for and see where they’d caused their own issues.

This is a short story that will capture your heart and inspire your imagination. It was a great, albeit quick, read. I’m looking forward to the sequel.
