They Will Be Coming for Us (The Jovian Duology Book 1) (affiliate link)
Svetlana Peterman has met her soul mate in Andrew Jovian, a young astronomer who works for Starbright International, the aerospace company his wealthy parents own. Once married, they make a home in Kirksberg, Pennsylvania, a small town famous for a UFO sighting that occurred in the 1960s. Svetlana is, for once, truly happy, except that Andrew’s family is strange, and not in a normal-strange kind of way.
Preoccupied with only two things—the night sky and carrying on their family lineage—the Jovians lack social skills and often pry into Svetlana’s personal life. Her intimidating mother-in-law demands she get busy fulfilling her reproductive duty to the family, and Andrew’s eccentric uncle seems to be able to read her mind.
Stalk the Moon: a Greek God Romance (Mirrorside Book 1) (affiliate link)
A modern retelling of the myth of Artemis and Orion—with a few twists!
She doesn’t know she’s Artemis, mythical huntress and goddess of the moon—but he does. And that’s all he needs to make sure he gets his happy ending this time. Except he’s expecting the Artemis he remembers. Who he gets instead is—
With a potty mouth and a Jersey attitude, I’ve never been the type of girl who cries when things don’t go my way. I’m no damsel in distress. Whatever life throws at me, I can handle it. No matter how rough or tough or… weird?
Because falling through a full-length mirror and ending up in a forest wearing nothing but a nightgown is definitely weird. Stabbing a giant scorpion in the eye with a stick? Yup. Weird. Discovering I’m a whiz with a bow and that I can apparently communicate with animals like some grouchy Disney princess—okay, not gonna lie. That’s kind of cool.
Being told that I’m supposedly the reincarnation of the Greek goddess Artemis? Super friggin’ weird. How am I supposed to believe that? Or that some gorgeous hunk of a guy insists we’re meant to be together?
