The Maenad of Manhattan
by Liz Meldon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
This book is about Aphrodite and how she is a love columnist. She is at a bar one night when she meets Loki; the only other god she has seen in ages. Their chemistry is immediate and wow… once he gets a hold of her, watch out.
Even though this was a short read it was very enjoyable and had a lot of information. These two gods are going to end up working together and I think it’s going to be fantastic.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series to see where these two end up. I give this book 5***** all the way around.
The Maenad of Manhattan (Lovers and Liars #1)
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—albeit incredibly sexy—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.
