  • Farrah
    Such a wonderful, Greek mythology inspired book! The Nymph's Labyrinth was fantastic.I LOVE Greek mythology, so I delight in reading books inspired by it. And this book did not disappoint.Ariadne, yes the one from the Theseus myth, was a lovely heroine. However, at the beginning, she's kind of a door mat. There was a reason for that, so it didn't bother me too much. Especially toward the ends when she toughened up and refused to let anyone run al...

    I was given this book, ahead of Montana Mustangs, in exchange for an honest review, Lovers of Paranormal.From the blurb I hadn't realised this would be Greek Mythology related - that was a winner from the start for me.Beau has it all hitting him at once. His need to prove he is right about his dig is running out of time and then his estranged son lands on his doorstep at the same time he he meets a woman that he is instantly drawn to - Ariadne. T...

    I have a thing for authors that step outside the norm and try something different. So when I saw a new series featuring Nymphs I was all in and I'm really glad I gave The Nymph's Labyrinth a try. The writing style hooked me right away and had me reaching for my Nook every chance I could during the day. With intriguing characters and an interesting take on mythology Winters created a fun world that easily pulled me in. The gist? Archaeologist Beau...

    This novel is brilliantly written with a fun undertone that makes you want to keep going. I couldn’t put this brilliant novel down for one second. Winters paints a very vivid picture of the world surrounding her characters. I feel like I’ve been to a dig site on Crete, without ever leaving the comfort of my living room. She also develops a brilliant romance without resorting to a multiplicity of bedroom scenes as a substitute for writing with...

    The Nymph’s Labyrinth was the perfect blend of mythology, suspense and love.I have always been a huge fan of anything Greek mythology and I admit the first thing that really caught my attention about this book was the lovely book cover. Yes, I judge books by their covers and a alluring book cover will snag my attention every time. So kudos to the cover designer! ;)Ariadne was a curious mixture of strong and meek From the very start you can tell...
  • Nancy (The Avid Reader)
    I was given a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.Beau Morris is an archeologist and a professor who is trying to prove that the Nymph's Labyrinth is real and does indeed exist. He needs to prove it for reasons of his own. Everything is going real good for Beau until he meets Ariadne Papadakis a Nymph and a member of the sisterhood of Epione. Ariadne is trying to get Beau's dig shut down.The leader of the sisterhood Kat ha...

    The nymph Epione rebuffs the advances of Zeus and in doing so, he placed a curse on her and all of the nymphs - they can no longer love a human, for if they do, the human will die a horrible and painful death.Ariadne (yes, it is indeed that Ariadne from the myths) has kept the secrets of the Sisterhood of Epione for millenia and no one has come close to their secrets until now. Beau Morris is an archaeologist who thinks the famous labyrinth of my...

    I will admit to being a bit of a mythology junkie, so when the opportunity arose to read this book for a tour I grabbed at the chance. And I was not disappointed in the least. With a clever incorporation of myth into the everyday existence, Danica Winters has brought Ariadne to the forefront as she struggles between protecting the labyrinth from discovery or allow love to enter and perhaps endanger those she loves. With a story-line that does not...
  • A.R. Von
    This was my third time reading anything by Danica Winters and I find myself enjoying her work more and more with each time! I enjoyed this story of Nymphs, so much so I found myself unable to stop reading (except for much needed sleep at the wee hours of the morning). Being my first time ever reading anything Nymph related, it was a great and exciting experience, one that I recommend to any other reader that enjoys a great paranormal romance and ...

    What if the myths of ancient Greece weren't myths after all? If you are an American archaeologist you have to find the proof to secure your financing and prove you aren't a nutcase. That is what archaeologist Beau Morris is trying to do with the labyrinth from the myth of the Minotaur. Ariadne is a nymph she and her sisters have been charged with keeping the secrets of the sisterhood and of her Goddess Epione, part of those secrets is a curse aga...
  • Lexie
    I received a copy of this book from LoP in exchange for an honest review.I really struggled to write this review. I love paranormal and mythology books, so this should have been a home-run for me. However, I never connected to the characters. Ariadne is a nymph trying to keep the secret of all Nymphs existence hidden. Beau is an archaeologist who is about to uncover the Labyrinth on Crete. It would be the biggest discovery in centuries, yet Ariad...
  • Winter
    What a great book. I've only recently gotten hooked on the paranormal genre, but The Nymph's Labyrinth isn't your typical paranormal. Here you enter a world where Greek Mythology meets contemporary Greece. I truly enjoyed learning about it when I was younger--and it seems my oldest boys have sparked my interest again while reading the Percy Jackson series--and I enjoyed returning once again.Ariadne Papadakis isn't your typical paranormal heroine,...
  • Clare O'Beara
    A scenic, bewitching cover and the paranormal romance genre drew me to this book. Zeus tries to sleep with snake nymph Epione but she refuses; he's married, and she wants men for love rather than lust. Zeus causes the volcano Thera to erupt and destroy Crete, while cursing men who love nymphs down the ages.Crete is being excavated by present-day archaeologists, but nymph Ariadne Papadakis who appears to be an islander, is determined to protect th...

    First of all I love archaeology, I love mythology and I love Greece! Needless to say I quite fell into love with The Nymph's Labyrinth! I expected the story to be just about romance but there was a nice touch of suspense with the Sisterhood protecting their secrets and beau hunting to find the Labyrinth of the Minotaur, there was so much to like!I loved Ariadne, she had the sweet juxtapose character she was quite obedient with her Sisterhood but ...
  • April
    This is a really interesting series. I love the whole new twist on Greek Mythology! Both books hold a great story and more than a simple romance. There is suspense and intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat! They were wonderfully paced and had delightful stories.The characters were engaging and very loveable! I adored Ariadne and Beau in the first book. They really were a perfect pair. And their struggles were very relateable.More sweet ma...

    I really enjoyed reading this story although I made a mistake of reading Montana Mustangs first but both can be read as a stand alone.I loved Greek mythology and it this one was probably the first book I've read that involved the other characters besides the gods/goddesses. Ariadne has shown great strength in terms of improving from being a weaker person in the beginning but as it continues she learns to stand up for herself. It was a big relief ...

    **I received a free copy of this book (from the author thanks to goodreads group Lovers of Paranormal) in exchange for an honest review.** Absolutely loved this one!!! I have always been a fan of Greek mythology and this was a perfect Greek myth book. It had mystery, adventure, and the grand theme of love conquers all :). Extremely well written, dialogue did not feel forced at all. Even the diabolical Kat was a likable character! Think Starvos w...
  • August Is Azathoth The Haunted Reading Room
    Review of The Nymph’s LabyrinthAn FMB Blog Tour5 starsMulti-published romance author Danica Winters spins a tale of a long-forgotten mythology come to life. Ariadne is a nymph and member of the Sisterhood of Epione, a group which preserves it secrets and has done so for millennia. When an American archaeologist begins to explore too deeply, Ariadne is tasked with stopping his progress. Yet her heart tells her differently: this is the love of he...
  • Cary Frates
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing was quick and clear, the story line inventive and clever, the characters compelling, full of dimension and captivating. To be in Greece, if only through words on a page, is a gift, but this author gave me a desire to go back, to look more deeply at the ruins, and to care about the lush history that still lives in that blessed place. Much of what Ms. Winters has brought so vividly to life is rooted in tr...

    First I must state I love Greek Myths, so when I saw this offer, I couldn’t say no.Ariadne runs a museum with a secret the secret labyrinth and she’s a shape shifter on an adventure. She’s not what I expected, but I liked her.Beau Morris reminds me of Indiana Jones, and what I loved about him. I don’t know the modern day equivalent on Disney, but back in the day, this meant ruggedly sexy and super smart, making him double trouble. Beau re...
  • Pam B Morris
    Once more Danica Winters astounds with another unique concept, characters from settings straight out of historical myth. Her imagination takes characters and runs with them, into ever more intense danger and through encounters and traps that would kill lesser mortals. Or immortals! Loyalties are tested, but no more than true love in this fast paced adventure within an intriguing archeological context I found very engaging and interesting. The jux...
  • Antie
    I really enjoyed this book. I think Beau and Ariadne are such great characters. I love how "human" the nymph's are even though they try not to be. I think Beau is such a great man. He tries so hard and just keeps getting knocked down. I enjoyed the little bit of history into Greek Mythology. I do not know much about it. The author gives us the right amount of information to help us understand what is going on without giving us a history lesson. I...

    I was given this to write a honest review for the group lovers of the paranormal on goodreads. This book is the first in the Nymph series of books. I had previously read book 3 and was pleased to be given the opportunity to read 1,2 and 4 which I recieved as an ARC. Book one was a fantastic start to the series,  I found it difficult to put down. I found it to be well written with a good plot. There were a mixed bag of characters in this one goo...

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lop or Lovers of Paranormal)At first understanding was difficult as Greek mythology is new for me but later after getting grasp, I enjoyed the story. It would have been easier if certain characters of Greek mythology have been explained bit. Beau's while career is at stake and he gave up evrythng for his love for Ariadne. I enjoyed the travelling in the labyrinth with Beau n Ariadneu
  • Cheryl Duval
    I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the Author and the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on Goodreads.comThis book was enjoyable enough and a quick read. I liked the relationship between Beau and his son Kaden, their strained relationship had a rocky start but things improved as the story moved along. Ariadne was torn between keeping her secrets or helping the man she loved. I am not really a fan of Greek mythology but it wa...
