Book Three in the Celestial Mates series.
Bia is the goddess of strength and compulsion, but those traits have her trapped in iron. A simple kiss could break the curse, but who wants to kiss a statue—especially a statue of a woman stabbing a man in the heart? She knows better than to hope her celestial mate will find her, but what if her hopes are justified?
Oliver, a very quiet, geeky guy, knows his way around fabric and fashion. He excels at his job of dressing mannequins for storefronts, but he’s lonely. When he sees the statue of Bia, he’s smitten. She’s everything—strong, confident and sexy—he wishes to be. What will happen if the shy man overcomes his fears and gives in to his heart’s desire? He just might be able to harness the power of the goddess.
A Romantica® supernatural erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

This is my first time reading the Celestial Mates series by author Megan Slayer. I was not lost at all reading Soft Iron. I love how this story ties contemporary, historical, and some Greek mythos into it. This might be a short story but it has a lot of really intricate elements woven into it.

Bia is trapped in an iron prison. She has been trapped for three centuries. She really only has her own hot tempered self to blame, and a certain Greek god she pissed off but still she is not amused at her situation. Not at all.

Oliver is a sweet, geeky guy who happens to love his job. Who knew he would be the one to break a curse to free a goddess. But can he keep the woman he loves once he frees her?
I loved this smart, quick story of redemption. There is humor, love, and hot sex all kept me reading and wanting more. I love Ms. Slayer's way of weaving a tale and making me want more of her characters. I know I will be going back to read some of the books in this series I have missed, and looking forward to many more to come.
