Carla hopes that ten days on the romantic island of Cyprus will finally progress her relationship with reserved Scottish boyfriend, Jamie, to a full physical commitment. Or prove that they have no future together. But they had reckoned without the intervention of the goddess Aphrodite and her lover, Adonis.
Will Aphrodite awaken Jamie’s hidden depths and allow him to return the passion that Adonis senses in Carla?
“This is a delightful romance, with the Greek gods working their magic on a young couple who are clearly perfect for each other. The setting of Cyprus is wonderful and the romantic tension of ‘will they’ ‘won’t they’ is engaging. I found myself really drawn to the characters and cheering on their HEA.” L. Townsend
“The playfulness of the deities contrasts well with the fretful relationship of the humans as we follow the twists and turns of the plot on this beautiful island till it reaches a satisfying ending for humans and gods alike. That is, until the next time…” M. Duffy
“The antics of the Greek deities, over the angst-ridden humans, made me smile throughout. As usual, this author – in a new departure from her more demure Historical Romances – uses a skilful, character-driven plot, and a natural ease with dialogue, to make this tale a fun read all the way to its satisfying conclusion…” Tango Queen
