~ Book Synopsis ~
The glory days of Ancient Greece are long gone, and the gods of the Old World are scattered across the globe. As their popularity dwindles, as their worshipers forget, their power fades. Luckily for Aphrodite, she’s a household name. After all, how could anyone ever forget the Greek goddess of Love?
Unfortunately, no one seems to know or care about her divinity. In a world of skeptics and technology-crazed mortals, loneliness and boredom have taken hold. Her life consists of romance advice columns, martini bars, and flings with empty-headed men—until she meets Loki.
She’s intrigued: it’s been decades—centuries even—since she laid eyes on another god, particularly one outside her pantheon. In their short time together, she realizes just how much she needs the companionship of one of her own. Loki, however, seems more interested in catching a murderous maenad than swapping stories about the old days.
Can she convince Loki to stay and make her life a little less lonely, or will he persuade her to join him on his quest for more worshipers? His questionable tactics make her uneasy, but how can she turn down the opportunity to live as she once did: freely, powerfully, and lustfully as Aphrodite of Olympus

OMG. I can't believe this is just a novella! I loved it. I have one huge complaint... I want more. I loved this read from page one all the way to the end. I am a huge fan of the mythical world of gods and goddesses. I love ancient stories and characters brought into the modern day world. Meldon does just that and more. Not only does she bring the greek goddess to the modern world but she brings the norse god to life as well. I loved that she mixed the two cultures so well together with our modern day world. I had a great time reading this story and I can't wait to see what else Meldon has to offer. I'm sold and head over heels in love with this little read. Still wanted more though! :)
