Calypso's Heart: An Orion's Order Novel

Front Cover
MC Solaris LLC, Jun 27, 2020 - Fiction - 638 pages

Sexy shifters. Hot vampires. Intriguing immortals. Strong heroine. Sizzling romance. Page-turning plot full of emotion and excitement. Modern and fresh take on fated mates. Plus a little bit of insta-lust because who wouldn’t be attracted to their sexy, alpha life mate?


Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I'm well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn't think so. That's probably a good thing though because I have... And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me... which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I'm just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream... paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I'm not really sure... but it's not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams... like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?


I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion's Order, a pack of... well, not wolves. We're an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Intelligence Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion... a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

***Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.***

“This is the beginning of a fascinating Paranormal series… compelling and fun.” ★★★★★

“This book will take you for the most mind blowing ride in the shifter romance series… sets the stage for one epic set of romances.” ★★★★★

“...steady and steamy read. With tons of danger to keep you on the edge of your seat… taking paranormal romance to a whole new level.” ★★★★★

"It has the elements you need - love, pain, heartache, action, revenge, some light comedy, etc. I thought the sex scenes were SPOT ON! Like damn those were great. I really felt immersed in it at times and I felt transported into the story." ★★★★★

“The descriptions and imagery are on point. It’s easy to picture the characters and scenes. I like the multiple POV shifts to better understand and immerse myself in the character’s mind. The sex scenes are steamy and kept me turning the pages." ★★★★★

“...if you are looking for a book that punches you in your face, right out the gate, with unrealistic action, tasteless sex scenes, and emotional turmoil, this won't be it. Go watch Shameless instead. But if you are looking for something that unfolds at a pace that gives you time to decipher the characters, setting, and complexities of the story that is to come, then this is for you...” ★★★★★

“ one point in the book, a group of characters are all introduced in a short amount of time. While this might not be standard protocol for fictional stories, it's realistic. Trust that it was done with purposeful intent. Without giving away too much about the story, you get to learn about a pack of males in their environment, doing what males do...” ★★★★★

Calypso “Caly” Smith is an introverted paralegal who has been having extremely vivid dreams. On her way to work, she literally runs into Nick by
rear-ending his car. After a few days, Nick persuades Caly to go on a date. Meanwhile, The Order has been trying to track down The Ghost. Blake, a wolf shifter and leader of a group of alpha males, has begun to experience dreams that seem to be telling him a message. Caly goes on several dates with Nick but doesn’t feel any chemistry with him. Her dreams have changed dramatically as the man in her dreams repeatedly says, “Tell the male with the cold dark eyes Blake Orion’s Order.” One evening, she suddenly awakens to see an intruder in her apartment. The man with cold dark eyes appears in front of her. Caly tells him the message, then her world goes dark. Upon waking up, Caly sees the man in her dream. Blake inquires why she called him, and Caly soon learns there is more to the world than what she was led to believe. Calypso’s Heart by M.C. Solaris is a fantasy set in the world of shifters.
The points of view in Calypso’s Heart split between Caly and Blake. The emotional turmoil that Caly has is completely rational, and I would feel the same way if I was apparently abducted from my home. Waking up to a world where the people are more than just human would be a shock to anyone. The plot is extremely deep yet M.C. Solaris did an exceptional job of setting the scenes in vivid detail. The characters all have distinctive personalities that add a feeling of realism to the story. I enjoyed the witty games that the twins, Rhyland and Rhyker, would play on the overly serious vampire Nico. My favorite description of one scene was, “It was like a pink Care Bear threw up in his room.”
This fantasy story has several pages dedicated to Blake and Caly’s attraction to one another which, while physically descriptive, showed the intensity of emotional need. Every aspect of the characters, scenery, and action scenes can easily be pictured in my mind. The ending contains a letter from Caly ensuring The Orion’s Order Series will continue with its character-centered focus. I recommend this exceptional novel to readers that enjoy paranormal romances starring shifter main characters. I look forward to Rhyker’s Key: Book 2 of the series.

About the author (2020)

M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart).

On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert.
