Tagline: Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is playing matchmaker in Regency London, only she's put a curse on the lovers instead
Blurb:
First in The Curse of True Love series
Simon is known as Lord Rakehell, so any sane woman would be wary of wedding a man of his reputation. He truly loves Georgiana, and is determined to prove it to her, but how can he convince her after being late to their wedding?
Georgiana knew the dangers of falling instantly in love with a celebrated rake, but even she had not expected him to show up for their nuptials with ladies-of-the-evening in tow. Now she must determine whether Simon's protestations of love are genuine, or if she is being led astray by the passion he continues to incite in her.

Interview with Aphrodite, Goddess of Love

Tell us about yourself.
I am the Greek Goddess of Love, and I adore jewelry, and all things involving beauty and love. However, I have recently grown bored with the perfection of my existence. Who can bear to eat ambrosia and nectar every single day? I decided I would entertain myself by helping mortals find their one true love. And what better place than Regency London, where they are enamored of anything to do with the ancient Greek world.
Tell us about Ares.
I utterly adore him, even though he loves war, and fighting, and conflict of all kinds. He is the complete opposite of me, which may be why we are so passionate for each other. It is also what gave me the idea to play matchmaker. Or maybe I should say "mismatchmaker". It hasn't gone as smoothly with Lord Rakehell and Georgiana as I'd hoped. . . But I'm confident I can remedy everything. After all, my reputation is at stake here.
What do you think is your strongest point?
My persistence.
What would Ares say is your biggest weakness?
My persistence.
What do you wish was different about your life?
I adore my life! I am having so much fun masquerading in Regency London as Lady Aphrodite Carramont, with only Ares aware of my true identity. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to return home to Mount Olympus. It could be a while.
If you were given your fondest wish, what would it be?
That everyone would fall madly in love with their one true love and live happily ever after. BUT, only after I've had a chance to be involved, of course. It wouldn't be much fun otherwise. I'm definitely looking forward to the next rogue on my list, the one known as Lord Wastrel. He's proving to be a bit of a challenge.
Describe a place of perfect refuge.
I don't suppose I can say the bedchamber I share with Ares, can I? Well, that is still my answer, even if I shouldn't say so.

  3. Mae, thank you so much! Aphrodite is causing a bit of mayhem for Lord Wastrel -- although the heroine is doing a good amount of that too. LOL
