Book Description:

A world shrouded in mystery and intrigue, the Sisterhood of Epione must not be exposed. 
A Shape-shifting nymph, Ariadne, is tasked with keeping the truth of her group’s existence and their ancient mysteries far out of reach of an American archeologist and his troublemaking son.  When forgotten and forbidden passions are awakened, Ariadne is forced to make a choice—fall in line and continue to be overrun and pushed down by the sisterhood, or follow her heart and put everyone’s lives in danger.
Can Ariadne have the man she loves or will the pressure and secrets of the past keep her from her heart’s desire?

My Review: 

I love books that feature some form of Greek mythology.  The old myths fascinate me.  The Nymph's Labyrinth isn't really a myth retelling.  In fact, Ariadne of the old myth's has been alive for thousands of years.  She is trying to protect her and her sister Nymphs from an American Archeologist who stumbled upon their labyrinth.  In the process, she does the forbidden, she falls in love.  Will she be able to have the love she so seeks, or will it destroy both her and Beau?

The Nymph's Labyrinth was a fun read for me, that I read rather quickly.  The relationship between Beau and Ariadne takes some time to build and develop.  I like this type of relationship way more than the insta-love that is so prevalent in so much of what I have been reading lately.  Beau's son, Kaden, kind of throws a monkey wrench into things, but I love how Ariadne handles those problems.

I can really feel for Ariadne.  She wants to have her own life and dreams, but she is stuck to the old ways, and doing what her sisters tell her to do.  I don't want to spoil any major plotlines, but she is stuck in the place she is for a reason.  Part of the fun of the story is learning the reason, and trying to figure our if Ariadne will win. 

I hope you enjoy reading this fun romance as much as I did.

I like shifter or bad boys!

My favs are Barrons, William (Bayou Moon), Clay (Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld) and lots of other grumpy men. :D
