Von C. Dionne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Greek gods and the other entities of Mt. Olympus deserve love too but when they go about finding their significant others they discover that even gods don't have true love handed to them on a silver platter.

Drea and her friends Pander and Tansy have taken a once in a lifetime trip to Greece thanks to their benefactor Amelia. Amelia had stipulated that the money they each received after her passing was to be spent on the trip. The invitation to a party in praise of Eros is that catalyst that brings Drea face to face with her destiny - Hades. Hades is in search of his Persephone and he's positive that Drea is the woman destined to remain at his side for all eternity. Convincing her of that fact will take a little work but he's up to the challenge.

ERATO by Cat Johnson
The muse Erato is not at all happy to learn that the goddess Aphrodite intends to send him from Mt. Olympus. Because of his fascination with mortals he's perfect for her plan involving a female in the mortal world. Next thing he knows he's waking up in an alley behind a restaurant with an enchanting woman checking him for signs of life. He has no memory of where he's from or even his own identity. Something about the scent on Acantha arouses him but he doesn't understand why. Acantha is equally attracted to Erato but she's never had much luck in the love department.

God of the Forge Hephaestus is one of the elite pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses and Zeus's son. He's very happy working with his hands creating Zeus's lightning bolts and other various contraptions. The only part of his life he's dissatisfied with is his wife Aphrodite's promiscuity. For some reason she's showing less interest in him and Hephaestus is tired of her not satisfying his needs as well as her own. He's about to lay down the law and it just may result in both their satisfaction.

PLUTO'S OFFERING by Selena Illyria
Iriana's day isn't off to a good start. She's overslept and late for the wedding she's in charge of then she's waylaid by a seer who claims that Pluto, the Roman god of the dead will rise and Iriana will meet him. Her day only goes downhill from there when she's drugged, accused of being a witch and sacrificed. Now she finds herself in the company of Pluto, and she can honestly say it may just be the best thing to ever happen to her.

Each night Edmond searches the sky for the eternal beauty that can only be found in the stars and moon. He's imagined a woman with welcoming arms when he gazes at the moon but chocks it up to a flight of fancy. That is until a woman appears behind him without a sound. Selena treasures this short time she's granted freedom of the demands and expectations of Mt. Olympus and being a goddess. Edmond's worshipful desire for her calls her to him but there's no hope for a future for them beyond the time of the Flower Moon - when Selena will once again be trapped on Mt. Olympus.

DARK BOND by Eliza Gayle
When vampire Drakon's human lover, Ezra's life is taken by a wooden stake meant for Drakon, he'll do whatever he has to in order to bring his lover back. The only way to save him is for Drakon to call on his long ago lover, the goddess Nyx, and vow to give her whatever she wishes in exchange for saving Ezra. Goddess Nyx, creator and ruler of all things dark, agrees to save Ezra but she'll exact her price. Drakon assumes that she'll want him back but Nyx has a surprise up his sleeve - she intends to take Ezra.

THE SPOILS OF WAR by Kayleigh Jamison
Ares, the god of war and `manliness,' has fulfilled his part of the bargain and the little Frenchman has been defeated, now it's time to reap his reward and enlist Duke Wellington's help in finding a noblewoman to be his companion. While the nobleman expects Ares to select one of the raving beauties, he actually becomes interested in a certain young woman whose chances at marriage have been thwarted by a rumor regarding her virtue.

LOVE'S IMMORTAL PANTHEON consists of seven stories revolving around the Roman gods and the various other entities who inhabit Mt. Olympus. Each author brings these gods and goddesses to life and portrays them as flawed individuals with hopes, dreams and desires. The stories of this anthology are endearing, fast paced, humorous, memorable and incorporate everything I've always found so intriguing about the ancient gods and how flawed they really were. If you're looking for a fun read that encompasses several different genres while still involving Greek gods and goddesses then this is the book for you.

"Becoming Persephone" by Dagmar Avery

Drea is visiting Greece while mourning a woman who was like a mother to her. While there, she is invited to a party and decides to go. However, this is an odd party as she meets someone who thinks he is Hades and that is just the beginning of her night. Drea thinks that Hades is one hot and sexy man, even if she doesn't believe he really is the god. Hades is pretty sure that Drea can be his next Persephone. Will a game of hide and seek that rambles though the party show Drea that maybe the gods do play on earth and that maybe the sexy man she wants just might be a god in more than looks?

Ms. Avery takes a fun and kinky look at just how the gods might decide on who to develop a new relationship with. Drea knows that she will be sleeping with the man who calls himself Hades, but why make it easy for him? Hades believes that Drea was meant to be his next consort, that is, Persephone. I enjoyed watching Hades and Drea play their games while the party was going on. "Becoming Persephone" is a great start to the anthology.

"Erato" by Cat Johnson

Erato agrees to help out Aphrodite on a project. The only thing is he doesn't know exactly what the project is or anything else except he is to make someone love him. The next thing he knows, Erato wakes up outside a restaurant with no memory of how he got there or why. Acantha is the owner and head cook of the restaurant that Erato shows up at. Acantha is instantly drawn to him and one thing leads to another that night. When they wake up, Acantha knows that she has fallen for Erato with no idea who he is and anything about him. But falling in love may be just the beginning of just what the gods and goddesses on Olympus have planned.

"Erato" is a look into some of the lesser beings that live on Olympus and how they can be affected by the larger gods and goddesses. I thought that both Erato and Acantha didn't really factor into the games that Aphrodite and others were playing even though they were directly affected by it. I was truly happy when Erato and Acantha found a way to belong together no matter the how or why.

"Hephaestus Lays Down the Law" by Tilly Greene

Hephaestus might know how to heat his metal but somehow he hasn't found the way to keep his wife happy and loyal. Aphrodite is always playing--actually sleeping--with someone and he has to hear about it. Hephaestus has had it and this will be the last time. Now to figure out a plan to show his wife just what is going to happen from now on. Plans are made and ready to enact, this is going to be one hot night and it has nothing to do with his forge.

Ms. Greene knows how to turn on the heat full blast and "Hephaestus Lays Down the Law" is no exception. I was cheering for Hephaestus when he decided that it was time to show Aphrodite just how things were going to be. I was also surprised to learn what was behind Aphrodite's actions. Communication is a major factor in relationships and I see that is no different on Olympus. One hot and erotic night brought not one understanding but a couple of them.

"Pluto's Offering" by Selena Illyria

Iriana makes sure that a bride's day goes off without a hitch. Mind you, odd things can still happen, but Iriana will take care of them and make the wedding as great as possible. Car trouble leads Iriana to the wrong shop and from there her day goes really wrong. Served up as a sacrifice, Iriana is scared witless only to be rescued by one sexy man called Pluto. Pluto just wants to be left alone, but he goes to get the next person sent to him. However, he is not expecting the vivacious Iriana. Pluto might be a god of the underworld, but he knows a great thing when it is served up to him and Iriana is it. Will a month be enough for both of them so that when they have to part it will be without broken hearts?

"Pluto's Offering" is a look at a future when the old gods have been brought back into prominence. Pluto likes being left to his readings alone, but once a month he goes to rescue whoever is sent as the offering. Iriana was in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up being this months' offering. But being sent to Pluto might not be a bad thing. I found Pluto and Iriana to have sparks right away and I was not surprised at all on how it ended--very happy, but not surprised.

"Seduction in Moonlight" by Diana DeRicci

Selena is tired of not having someone special in her life. Living in the night as she does, most of the time she just gazes down on earth and watches the mortals. But for three special nights, Selena is going to have what the other gods have--someone special to love her. Edmon is a warrior who loves the moon and whenever he can, he watches it and wonders what wonders it hides. Edmon is surprised when Selena appears before him and asks for nothing more than three special nights. However, when it is clear that three nights just won't do, what solution can Edmond and Selena find for a mortal and a goddess?

Ms. DeRicci brings to life a love story of one of the goddesses that isn't as well known. Selena and Edmon just want to explore what has come between them. But when you are dealing with Olympus' rules, wishes don't always come true. Selena comes up with a solution, but I was not surprised when Edmon made a major change with it. Gods and goddesses have rules to follow, but love has its own rules and sometimes those are much more important. "Seduction in Moonlight" shows just that.

"Dark Bond" by Eliza Gayle

Ezra and Draken are an unusual couple but one that are in love nonetheless. The main difference is that Ezra is human and Draken is a vampire--not that Ezra knows that. When Ezra is mortally wounded in a fight, Draken does the only thing possible--he calls Nyx, the goddess of all things dark and asks that she help him change Ezra over. Nyx agrees but for a price. Draken agrees thinking he knows what she wants. Imagine his surprise when he is wrong. Nyx wants both of them. Explaining things to Ezra might be more difficult with this, but Draken soon discovers that things are not what he thought and he is the one due the explanation. Can this very unusual threesome find a way to let the past rest and live their long lives together?

"Dark Bond" brings together a very usual threesome in a way that might end their relationship before it gets a chance to live. I could feel the love between Ezra and Draken even while they were fighting for their lives. When Nyx came in to save Ezra and then claimed her prize, I was unsure if any of them would be left together. When Draken, Ezra and Nyx finally laid all the cards on the table, I enjoyed just how things turned out.

"The Spoils of War" by Kayleigh Jamison

Ares has helped a general win his war and now wants his promised prize. For Ares this prize can only be a woman, and for him it has to be a virgin. The general, when apprised of this, reluctantly agrees and takes Ares to a London social party. Ares immediately sees the woman who will be is next consort--Lady Serena Tolson. It has been rumored that Lady Tolson was compromised and that she is untouchable. Really? Rumors are started for various reasons and they are not going to stop Ares. Serena, once she is alone with Ares, doesn't see any reason not to make the rumor true. After all, he is a sexy god and one that makes her insides very happy.

"The Spoils of War" brings the god of war together with one very intelligent lady of old London. Ares and Serena seemed to have been meant for each other, for once they actually talked the sparks were zinging all over the place and it took very little time to discover that sparks can lead to a love that can transits time. Ms. Jamison's look at the London society during regency times showed just how fast a god can fall.

Love's Immortal Pantheon takes a look at some of the known and not so known gods and goddess and just what they are getting up to. I truly enjoyed the majority of the stories written by some good authors. Placing the entire anthology around the gods and goddesses of the Pantheons was a great starting point. My only complaint is that as the stories went on they because shorter and shorter and not as fulfilling. But I know this happens sometimes when so many authors are placed in one anthology. Love's Immortal Pantheon gives a look at how the residents of Olympus find a great love to last the ages.

Short, Hot, and Sweet!

What an excellent hot short story that will draw you magically into a mythological world full of surprising endings. Just when you thought you knew your mythology is when you realize that only half truths of the mythology were ever foretold. The story was a heartwarming and a fun read. The erotica scene between Hades and Drea (the new Persephone) was hot hot hot! I absolutely loved it and wanted more in the end. I look forward to reading more from this author and of the series.
