Though he needs restful solitude, he dreams that he helps stage magician Dia Trelawny. He attends her Chicago show at the same time Dia's older sister Liza, single mother of two sets of identical twins, also watches.
Following the performance, Dia learns from the kids that Liza left on a romantic adventure leaving her in charge of the children. Dia realizes she must find Liza because she cannot watch the children due to the machinations of Demetria Cesare, once known as the ancient Goddess Demeter. Demetria plans to use Dia to destroy Hugh, a descendent of her enemy Hades. At the same time the matchmaking attempts of Zeke “Zeus” Jupiter and Harriet “Hera” Juneau, ho need to make amends for all the trouble they caused mortals millenniums ago, select Dia and Hugh as their current project.
The latest Zeus-Hera matchmaking tale, THE SEEKER, is an engaging tale that hooks the audience from start to finish. The story line is fun as Dia struggles to balance her work as a performer with four children, the interference of the Greek Gods and her growing love for Hugh.

As with the TRICKSTER and THE WARRIOR, Kathleen Nance provides fans of otherworldly romances with a powerfully enchanting novel.
