Some are lucky enough being born with Athena's brain, or Apollo’s talent in music. Me, you ask? I got my fathers looks. That may not have been the worst thing, unless you’re the illegitimate child of the Greek God Hephaestus, the worst looking God on Olympus.

Alexis Panagakos was used to being alone. She rarely stepped out of her little apartment in New York City, afraid of what the world would think of her. But when she accidently bumps into one of Eros’ descendants, Lander, and his friend and last assignment, Evangelina, one of Aphrodite’s many daughters, Alex’ world seems to be turn upside down.

Follow Alex' journey to discover that beauty doesn't have to come from a stunning face, and true love can be found, even in the darkest hour.
