When Lyleia Naiad was head-hunted by Brimstone, Inc., for her job as Executive Assistant to a high-powered billionaire demigod, she was given one directive—do NOT fall in love with Castor Dioskouri. Doesn’t matter if he’s the son of Zeus and can electrify a room with a single glance. As an ex-nymph, she possesses a unique ability—a gift from the goddesses to protect nymphs from the randy gods—to resist her boss's charms.

Or so she thought.

He insists she accompany him to an alpha wolf shifter mating ceremony, an event where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes...and inhibitions.

Goddesses save her, because Castor has stolen into Lyleia’s heart, and she’s not so sure she can hold out much longer...

This novella was previously self published but has undergone a complete re-edit. Scenes were added, things were changed, but the kissing still remains!

“Greek mythology is seamlessly weaved into modern-day, and Abigail Owen’s execution of this, for me, was flawless.” More Books Please Blog

A funny, quick and strong chemistry office romance with a paranormal/mythological twist!” -Ashley F., Goodreads

The Demigod Complex is a fun spin on the Greek gods and nymphs. I so enjoyed Castor and Lyleia’s story that it was impossible for me to put it down.” -Wit and Sin Blog

I enjoyed this novella immensely, we had some laughs, some fanning because these two are hot together (hello, nymph!) and a deeper story of Leila’s past. I felt the connection all around with these two and I’m hoping we get to see them again in this series.” -Romance Schmomance Blog

I laughed so many times during this book because of something that one of them would say and I love when a book can make me laugh.” -Mary K., NetGalley

“This was a short, sweet, smutty good read where gods are real, and the bad guys get what they deserve.” -Carrie Reads A Lot

Lyleia may have lost her spring hundreds of years before, as well as the love of her sisters, but the nymph never lost her sense of duty, pride, humor or her rare ability to ignore the powerful charms of her boss, the demigod, Castor. Okay, two out of three abilities are intact, but after all, nymph ...more

I enjoyed this first story in the Brimstone Inc PNR series! A water nymph Lyleia banished from her home finds a place as assistant to sexy CEO, and demigod (son of Zeus) Castor.

This story was very fun and cute, Ms. Owen’s innovative vision for the familiar trope made for a delightful read.

4.5 Stars! Abigail Owen is a new-to-me author. I’ve read one of her books under her Kadie Scott pen name, and really liked her stories and writing style.

Lyleia “Leia” Naiad needed purpose. Something to help her pull herself out of the anger and despair she’s felt for so many years. Her conne ...more

By Amber January 31, 2020

The Demigod Complex is a wildly entertaining story of second changes and finding what we want in the most unlikeliest of places. Nothing is as good as finding our heart desire, but what trumps that is finding it right under our nose. When you least expect it, you find yourself tripping over it at ev ...more

By Romance Schmomance (Malia) February 17, 2020

What a fun novella, which had me wishing for more. Novellas are always tough to read especially when you have a lot of ground to cover. I think Abigail did a great job with the limited amount of words that she had. Greek mythology is a huge fave and any sort of retelling or just a story in that worl ...more

This is book 1 in Brimstone Inc and I would keep in mind that this is definitely a PNR! So if you don't like them, you won't like this book.

I loved pretty much everything about this book, and finished it in just a few hours. You can definitely finish it in one sitting. All you need is a comfy chair, a cup of cocoa and you’re good to go!

Abigail Owen is easily becoming one of my favorite paranormal/Fantasy Romance novelists to date. Short, sweet, and hella steamy, The Demigod Complex is the beginning of a new series that encompasses shifters, witches, and greek gods that packs the ultimate punch.
