The 12 Hunks of Herculeia: A Monstrously Mythic Romance Part 1 By C. Rochelle Cover Image


I thought I was living the dream-until the fateful day I found my boyfriend in bed with my boss. As a professional copywriter, it was the tired cliche that hurt me the most.

What's a big city girl to do but pack my bags and go solo on that Grecian cruise I'd booked with my ex? Who needs a man when you have tropical breezes, stunning vistas, and free cocktails with frilly umbrellas?

But thanks to a freak storm, I find myself washed ashore on a mysterious Greek Isle inhabited by 12 hotties determined to help me in any way they can.

What in the rom-com setup is this?

Somehow, I've ended up inside a famous Greek myth, tasked with conquering the very men I find myself unable to resist-despite their fur, fangs, tentacles, extra appendages, and extremely large...secrets of their own.

Danger lurks around every crumbling ancient ruin, but the longer I stay, the more I wonder if I want to return to my old life at all.

Here, I get to be the heroine of my own story, and it might just be time to rewrite history.


Please note: This is book 1 in a duet and is slow-build (I should hope so, for our girl's sake... and her cat's...)

The 12 Hunks of Herculeia is a medium-dark rom-com loosely based on the 12 Labors of Heracles, with many ridiculous liberties taken. And before my fellow history nerds get their togas in a bunch, I am aware that Hercules/Herculeia is the Roman spelling (it gets addressed in the book, trust.)

This book is meant for readers 18 and over.

This series includes:

  • MM (loads of it - with their own relationship arcs)
  • Multiple POV
  • Cliffies

Possible triggers in this series (please see inside book and author's website for more details):

  • Sweary dialogue
  • Naughty irreverent humor
  • An overly possessive, slightly unhinged group of men
  • Very spicy extracurricular activities (please see inside book for more details)
  • Light threat of violence with a knife
  • Trauma related to past death in the family, a bad breakup (with cheating), and a magical shipwreck
  • Ongoing familial betrayal involving lying and gaslighting
  • Sloot-shaming (from the Big Bad)
  • Snakes (one of the men is a Hydra, so he has 9 snake heads and forked tongues, and various other creatures have snakes elements to their bodies)
  • Signature weirdness and medium-dark elements
  • Greek myths with many ridiculous liberties taken

In general, please do not read this if you own pearls to clutch, or if you regularly ask to speak to the manager, as you and I will probably not get along.
