I thought I was living the dream—until the fateful day I found my boyfriend in bed with my boss. As a professional copywriter, it was the tired cliche that hurt me the most. 

What’s a big city girl to do but pack my bags and go solo on that Grecian cruise I’d booked with my ex. Who needs a man when you have tropical breezes, stunning vistas, and free cocktails with frilly umbrellas?

But thanks to a freak storm, I find myself washed ashore on a mysterious Greek Isle inhabited by 12 hotties determined to help me in any way they can.

What in the rom-com setup is this?

Somehow, I’ve ended up inside a famous Greek myth, tasked with conquering the very men I find myself unable to resist—despite their fur, fangs, tentacles, extra appendages, and extremely large…secrets of their own. 

Danger lurks around every crumbling ancient ruin, but the longer I stay, the more I wonder if I want to return to my old life at all. 

Here, I get to be the heroine of my own story, and it might just be time to rewrite history.


Herculeia is a monstrously mythic, medium-dark rom-com loosely based on the 12 Labors of Hercules, with many ridiculous liberties taken. And before my fellow history nerds get their togas in a bunch, I am aware that Hercules is the Roman spelling (it gets addressed in the book, trust.) For those wondering how weird this is gonna get in the sheets: Think monster shifters, who maintain fancy accessories in human form.

Includes MM (loads of it!)
Multiple POV

This book is meant for readers 18 and over.

Possible triggers:
Sweary dialogue
Naughty irreverent humor
Graphic sex, including kink and various edgeplay
Gore and violence
Trauma related to past death in the family, a bad breakup, and a magical shipwreck
Signature weirdness and medium-dark elements

In general, please do not read if you own pearls to clutch, or if you regularly ask to speak to the manager, as you and I will probably not get along.
