In my search for a new series to read, I stumbled upon Lisa Kessler’s The Muse Chronicles. I’ve only read the first book, but I’m happy to say I’m hooked!
If you’re interested in checking out the series–which I highly recommend–start with the first book, Lure of Obsession.
Author: Lisa Kessler
Subgenre: Paranormal/ Fantasy
Length: 266 pages
The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”
Melanie Jacoby teaches English at Crystal City High School. She’s also the reborn Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.
Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.
Mel is the next target.
The Order of the Titans are eager to bring about the return of the Golden Age of Man, and they’re prepared to kill the Muses to complete their mission. But Nate’s desire to protect Mel is almost as strong as his hunger for her.
And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.

Aren’t you excited?? If not, you just need to start reading. Mel is smart and savvy. Detective Nate Malone . . . well, he is nothing if not yummy (as in drool-worthy), protective, and an excellent Guardian.
And if you hurry, you can download it free from Amazon for your Kindle!
Book 2, Legend of Love, is already available, and Book 3, Breath of Passion, will be released on May 15th.
And shame on me for forgetting . . . this is a 5 star read! *woohoo* It’s such a creative idea with lovable characters and plenty of action, you won’t be able to put it down (yes, I read it in 2 days, staying up waaayyy past my bedtime to finish it!).
