A god-king disguised as a criminal defense lawyer...


Zeus/Zane, King of the Greek gods, holds the world in his palm in both his mortal and godly form… until Hera leaves him, forcing him to uphold Gaea's clause: There must always be a Queen, or he loses his title and part of his power along with it. Time is short. Too bad the one woman he has his sights on wants nothing to do with him. Or does she?


An empath criminal prosecutor...


There's nothing Keira Bazin dislikes more than defense lawyers. So when she discovers Zane Vronti, one of New York's finest, has been brought in on her newest murder case, it's anything but good news. Tensions flare as the two immediately butt heads, but there's something about Zane she can't put her finger on. His emotions are the strongest she's ever felt--borderline overwhelming. Power. Lust. Command. Can she fight her growing attraction for him? Does she want to?


**This is the LAST book in the Contemporary Mythos series. Though all can be read as a stand alone, there are Easter Eggs for those that read in order as books intersect.**

Author Q&A

1. Hi Carly! Thanks for chatting with us today about the final book in your Contemporary Mythos series! Can you tell us what inspired you to write about modernised Greek Gods?

I've always loved to read contemporary romance but whenever I attempted to write it myself I missed the magic. I've also always been heavily into Greek mythology but because there's so much of it out there in the book world I told myself I wouldn't tap into it until I felt I had something unique. And that's when I realized a modernized world with Greek gods/myth could also let me write those contemporary romance tropes I love.

2. Introduce us to Zeus, from god to criminal defense lawyer!

Zeus is an arrogant god-king who has settled into the depiction that society has created for him. He's sexy. He's complicated. And he's overly burdened with responsibility and being a leader. 

3. Which has been your favourite book in the Contemporary Mythos series to write?

I really enjoyed writing Eros because it was pure pure FUN. I've always wanted to write a straight rom-com that reminded me of the rom-coms from the late 90s/early 00s and this was my chance. Zeus though, was also super fun because it was my first dual POV, I let my spice flag fly, and it took me two years to figure out the redemption angle for Zeus.

4. What was your favourite thing about writing Zeus?

The banter, the tension, the steam. And being able to write from Zeus's POV, making him break the fourth wall, he himself was just super fun to give a voice.

5. What kind of things did you get to research while writing your series?

I know zero about being a lawyer, let alone a criminal one. I spent a lot of time researching the law aspect and had an amazing author friend who is also a criminal prosecutor alpha read for me to keep me on track. A lot of research into Zeus himself also came into play because I had to figure out, much like Ares, why is there so much negativity surrounding him?

6. Can you tell us a bit about Keira Bazin?

Keira is an empath able to detect people's emotions and occasionally project some of her own to them. This skill also works on Greek gods. ;) She's extremely loyal to anyone she gets close to, which isn't a lot of people because she's also very dedicated to her clients and being the best lawyer she can.

About Carly Spade:

An adult romance writer who has been writing since she could pick up a pencil. After the insanity of obtaining a bachelor’s and master’s degree in cybersecurity, creating worlds to escape to still ate at her very soul. She started writing FanFiction (which can still be found if you scour the internet 😉 ), and soon felt the need to get her original ideas on paper. And so the adventure began.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and two fur babies, and revels in an enemies to lovers trope with a slow burn.
