Product Description

Product Description

There’s more going on at famed Helios Resort in Mexico than meets the eye and Patience O’Conner is going to figure out what, even if it kills her . . . Which is exactly what Death has planned.

Patience O’Conner is a travel blogger who lives for her work. Her dedication to her readers brings her to the famed Helios Resort in Mexico, a locale that stuns her with its beauty but at which she suffers from some very strange accidents.

Luckily, hunky resort bartender Apollo Delos is always there in the nick of time, a malcontent guardian angel. Apollo stuns Patience again and again with his life-saving abilities, to say nothing of his smoldering looks and apparent desire to keep her alive.

Before long, Patience wonders if there is more to the sexy bartender than mixed cocktails and insane first-aid skills. Something strange is happening at Helios and Apollo doesn’t want to talk about it.

Can Patience open herself up to this enigmatic man, even though she is terrified to be vulnerable again? And can Apollo recover from an eternity of hurt and learn to trust once more? They must both decide before Death comes calling.

5.0 out of 5 stars great fun sexy read 23 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Rosanna Leo is a new Author to me and I have to say I
enjoyed this book so much.
Her writing style is lively and fun which also comes through in the storyline, it's a fun sexy read.

This is a story about the Gods set in the modern day and what a setting Helios Resort is, I want to go to Helios and I want to meet a sexy God.
It's fast pacing you won't find yourself bored at any part in this story and it's a lovely love story that will make you smile, laugh a little and want that HEA.

So we have Apollo who basically is sex on legs, well he is a God. He has been hurt badly in the past by women who said they loved him but when he showed them his true self they would run and this hurt him so much that he told himself he would never love again. He is a good guy but has done some bad things in his past. He knows a travel blogger is coming to his resort to write a review on it but what he doesn't expect is Patience and what she does to change his world.
Patience doesn't think much of herself she thinks she is fat plain and boring. Haha well she didn't plan on meeting Apollo either but he certainly makes her feel a whole lot different about herself. Patience does have issues and when you find out why she is the way she is you understand her more and get where she is coming from. She does seem to have a death wish well so would you when you have a demon after you trying to kill you.

Apollo is there to save her time and time again and they grow close which leads to some pretty hot sex like I said I want a God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 11 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Rosanna Leo's writing, I've read all her books to date! I fell in love with Apollo and loved getting his take on his history! As the muses stated, the history books favoured the females that died running from him but never gave the whole truth, namely that Apollo was good to them all and he was the one that was hurt, betrayed and used! Not them! Patience is a great leading lady as well. Her and Apollo are so good together, they've both been badly hurt in the past but both are willing to put themselves on the line again, at least when it comes to each other.
In the story Patience has been marked for death, she should have died months ago but unknowingly cheated death and hades has sent a demon to retrieve her soul. Apollo is determined that Hades won't get her. He fights for her every step of the way and the the two of them fall in love with Patience being the first woman to truly accept Apollo for all he is and not run away from him (though the pain in her past makes her tempted to a few times). Apollo does try to deny it at the start cause he's so afraid of being hurt again like he has so many times in his life but he takes a chance with Patience. When they get together the heat between them is scorching! Well worth picking up and if you haven't read any of Rosanna Leo's other books, you should! Her stories are hot, sexy and addictive! You'll find yourself unable to put them down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Leo has done it again!!! 7 Feb. 2013
By Luvs2read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As my friends know, I'm a HUGE fan of paranormal fiction and Sunburn is now on top of my list as a fav. Apollo finding love? Yes please!

The story takes us to Mexico, where blogger Patience is hoping to rate yet another resort. Little does she know, she'll find a lot more that involves this paradise. I won't give away any details at all. This book is very good. No, better than good, it's....APOLLO-RIFIC!

I have to say, with this being my third book read from this author and I would rather read her every day and night than most of my other books. I find that I even rank Ms. Leo up there with Sherrilyn Kenyon. Yes, I said it.

Five stars from me and I can't wait to see more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it 15 Jan. 2013
By David Ramsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sunburn

Apollo has opened a resort(Helios). His sister Artemis is there to check it out. Apollo is nervous because he is expecting the Travel Chic (a blogger on resorts) to arrive at anytime. He is also troubled that his visions have been of a young woman who has her heart riped out of her chest. He never sees her face but because he can't see visions of people close to him he is worried. Patience (the Travel Chic), has arrived at Helios with her two best friends. They trying to get her mind of a ex-lover and some R&R in the sun. When they arrive a bartender approaches and offers a drink. Patience sees the hunky bartender and fights any attraction she has to him. She has no idea he is the owner let alone the god of the sun and healing.

Rosanna, this one made me cry. I love Apollo! Patience tried my patience a little. She has been through a lot but she gives Apollo a run for his money. Their story is very touching and loving. You really get sucked into their story. Loved the story and even though it was short was well worth the read. Adults only, some extremely HOT scenes!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong addition to a great series 28 July 2013
By PBlack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'This guy made Brad Pitt look like a butt-scratching orangutan from the freaking circus.'
What's not to love about Apollo and his 'celestial nostrils'?
The third instalment in Rosanna Leo's Greek Gods PNR series has all the elements I have come to expect in her writing: highly likeable characters, lots of irreverent humour and a light-hearted take on the Ancient Greek myths.
I wasn't crazy about Patience's girlfriends, they seemed underdeveloped as characters and Doris' accent grated on me, but otherwise this was a really entertaining read.
Is Apollo 'my' god? Sadly not. This one didn't push my buttons quite as much as the last two in the series, but I believe that's down to my own tastes in book boyfriends. I tend to fall for the arrogant, sullen types with the soft centre, Mr Darcy over Mr Bingley every time. Apollo is a big softie in a hard, hunky body, who wants to be loved for who he is, not what he looks like. Patience is a ?plus-size career girl with a bundle of self-esteem issues owing to her rough past. These two reminded me a little of Rhage and Mary from the BDB series. If you're a Hollywood girl, chances are you'll fall for Apollo's easy charm. For me? Old Uncle Hades kind of stole the show in this one.
'...there was a sensual, velvety caress in his voice too. As if he'd reached under her skirt, put his hand into her underwear, and fingered her right there at the macaroni station.' That line, for me, was the panty melter. Lol
Hades also said something about not clinging so long to something that it eventually turns into something you no longer recognise. This gives me hope we might get to see the pervert from hell shake free of Persephone and get a story of his own? I'd certainly love to read that one.
This was a perfect, fast, fun read while basking in the French sunshine and looking out for Gilles and Claude lookalikes. I look forward to reading more of Leo's other series.
5.0 out of 5 stars fun, hot and satisfying 27 Feb. 2014
By Tiffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was just something so tempting to the premise of this book that I had to give it a try. I really enjoyed the premise and especially giggled over the puns about the various Greek gods of our history classes. The idea that they had all taken anger management courses over the years cracked me up. The author dropped in enough conflict and supernatural challenges to keep the reader guessing all while not insulting our intelligence and there by earning my 5 star review. A hot, fun and satisfying read for any contemporary romance reader.
