Description:    Inside the heart of every warrior breathes the soul of a hero--even within The Heart of War.

Meet Ares God of War is the greatest Warrior the world has ever known, he's also moody, grumpy, dominant, ravenously sexual,and above all, built like a Greek God.

Suspected of killing his Daughter in-Law, Psyche, and long in exile from Olympus, the solitude of Ares' island is interrupted when Magdalena MacLeod a brash and sometimes manipulative Fey washes up on Ares' island after believing she's been shipwrecked. There is no wreck and her memory of events is sketchy at best. Branded with a golden chastity belt bearing the mark of Cernunnos, Celtic God of the Forest and Death, Alena has been on the run from the Great Horned God for 200 years. As Ares and Alena grow closer discord erupts on the island as his head woman, Kat, plots to get rid of Alena and the Olympians plot to use her in their endeavor to discover who killed Artemis. Ares will have to choose between his Divinely Dysfunctional Family, his pride, and Alena before dueling to the death with the God of the Forest.
Come along for an epic adventure of erotica, steamy romance, and drama in this Modern Day Greek Tragedy. Battle Ancient Gods and Fall in Love along side Ares God of War and Alena MacLeod. Theirs is a love that will rock the world from the heights of Olympus to the Celtic moors 

Review This book centres around Magdalena, She washed up on island which belongs to Ares the god of war. Ares is cold and doesn't normally take the time to remember peoples names. But when it came to Magdalena something was different, he took the time to get to know her. He finds out she is to marry a Celt god, who she has been trying to run away from and escape. As time goes on Ares finds her intriguing and things start heating up.and he finds out what she's been running from.

In this book I see how people can change from being really bad to  softening and being good. and it all being down to the way you feel about someone. Now I will say that this book isn't for the faint hearted, because this book does hold a certain shock factor. It has really intense battle seances  and really bad rape seances but if you can get past that I think you will find that its a really good read. I found that Lisa is really good detail and description. I think you should forget about the shock factor (on less you love a book to shock you)  and give this book a try, because I did really enjoy it.
