Even though Zoe is the Muse of Beauty and immortal, she is still nervous about her one hundred year review with Zeus, who now runs Mount Olympus like the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, complete with computers . Her current one year stay on Earth is almost over. Zoe feels pretty good about all the beauty she has inspired with her designs.

One person who has noticed all her beautiful store window designs is Theo Maragos. Theo and his business partner have a growing business and hope to get more positive publicity from an upcoming magazine spread. The only problem is Theo may be brilliant with computers, but he has no sense of style. His loft looks like something a poor graduate student would rent. Theo hires Zoe to give his home a polished look.

When Zoe first meets Theo, he needs a little polish himself. He is hairy and sports the tweeds of an old college professor. Thanks to professional help, Theo’s handsome face and physique are revealed. Zoe has known many men, mostly in a physical way, but none have touched her on such a deep level. It breaks her heart that she will have to leave Theo in a few short weeks when she returns to Mount Olympus. Will Zeus let her follow her heart if she aces her job performance review?

Zoe is a very empathetic and affirming heroine. She may be a goddess, but she has a real woman’s curves and emotions. The author has also crafted a loving beta hero in Theo. Every woman dreams of a man who loves her for herself and knows the right things to say. Judi McCoy’s recent series may be whimsical, but at the core they are love stories with just the right amount of sizzle to make them delectable.
