Welcome Rebekah Lewis today

Talking with author Rebekah Lewis....

Can you please tell us about your latest/upcoming book(s)?

Mercury Rising is the first book in a companion trilogy to The Cursed Satyroi that is actually 1/3 of a single story. Because Hermes as a recurring character is so popular among my readers and he takes over scenes when he is involved I wanted to do something where you see what he is up to while the satyrs go on their own way. But he needs time to deal with his heroine's "issues."

How did you come with the idea for this story?

Well, I sort of wrote myself into a hole in that Melancton couldn't go to Olympus due to rules in the world building. However, I had already planned to do the Hermes series so it became the perfect plot for the first part: the great nymph rescue!

Who is your ultimate "book boy/girlfriend"? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.

I have to pick just one? Oh, Lawd! My favorites right now are Jamie Fraser from Outlander and Lothaire from Immortals After Dark.

Who is your Celebrity crush? And what would you do if you ever meet them?
Speaking of Outlander, Sam Heughan is currently reigning supreme in my fangirlish heart.

If you could collaborate with another author on a secret project, who would you pick to work with and why?

Oh, so many. But I think none of them would want to work with me since I can't keep my writing schedule as consistent as I'd like. But Kresley Cole is the author I am currently idolizing. IAD is a go to comfort read. Her YA series is freaking amazing. I just can't put into words how impressed I was with Poison Princess.

Mercury Rising
A Novella of The Cursed Satyroi
The Adventures of Hermes Book One
Breathless Press
Available at Publisher

Nymphs in peril, obsessive gods, females who literally cannot admit when they’re wrong, and unruly satyrs. Just another typical day for Hermes.
When Zeus refuses to demand Apollo release Daphne from captivity in Olympus, the only option left is for Hermes to free the nymph himself. A simple task for a god with his skillset, but risking the wrath of Apollo never went well for anyone.
However, imprisoned nymphs aren't distraction enough when a former flame crashes back into Hermes' life. It’s been a long time since he laid eyes on Hybris, and the timing couldn’t be worse. As the goddess of hubris, she has many quirks—such as being incapable of apologizing. And no matter how much she tries to assure him she can be trusted, the memory of her betrayal remains.
As they formulate a plan to rescue Daphne, Hermes soon suspects no threat is greater than the tribulations of the heart.
Don’t miss the first part of The Adventures of Hermes, a companion series to The Cursed Satyroi.
 Teaser Excerpt:

"I don't have time for this, Hy. I have things to do. Important things." A promise made to a satyr, one Hermes intended to keep. A damsel in distress. Heroics and all.
Hybris yawned. "Yeah. I see. Meandering around California and swimming at the beach is a matter of life or death."
Shaking his head, he opened the glass door into the house. He attempted to shut it behind him, but she shoved past. Hermes made an extensive effort not to notice she still smelled like pomegranates.
He failed.
"Well, I was waiting for Zeus to summon me before you showed up with your judgy...judginess." He closed the door and turned back to find her relaxing on his couch, despite her soaking wet clothing. Rude.
She studied her nails. "And did he?"
"Not yet."
"Then you aren't doing anything important." Her gaze flicked down to his groin. "Yet." Standing, Hybris advanced toward him.
"No. Oh, no, no, no. No." Hermes rocketed away and hovered out of her immediate reach. "We are so not going there again. Not this time. Not this day. Not happening." Was she for real? After all she'd done, she wanted sex from him?
Unsure if his ego or her influence on his personal hubris affected him, a warm smugness took hold. He'd always been cocky, but she could bring it out to the maximum.
"And why not? I'm a beautiful woman, you desire me, and you have an open schedule. Take off your pants and pleasure me."
