The Romance Reviews Hop

I’m so glad you came to visit with me today!

Through the ages, the world has always welcomed lovers; Mark Anthony & Cleopatra, Lancelot & Guinevere, Sampson & Delilah, Romeo & Juliet, Paris & Helena, Eros & Psyche, Hades & Persephone, Luke & Laura.

Yes, all the world loves a lover. Especially, if that love is forbidden.

My favorite pair of undercover lovers is Ares God of War and Aphrodite Goddess of Love & Beauty. Insofar as History teaches, Ares was the epitome of masculinity and yet he never took a Wife. He is associated with many many many women and noted as having fathered thousands upon thousands of children with Goddesses, Demi-Goddesses, and mortal women alike. Being possessed of such raw sexuality, I imagine he was hard to resist. I’ve always seen this old warrior as the loneliest and misunderstood of all the Gods. Yes, he had a penchant for war, for battle, for fighting, and he didn’t shy away from it, for those things the other Gods looked down upon him until their own cities became endangered and they called upon Ares for his help defending them.

Then along came Aphrodite who left a wide path of destruction and broken hearts in her lustful wake. So beautiful was she that Ares and Apollo both vied for her hand in marriage causing a rift between the already estranged Brothers that lasted the rest of Time. However, Zeus thought it best if the Goddess of Love and Beauty was humbled a bit. Zeus also believed that Love should not be confined only to the Beautiful, Love should be deeper than that. As such, he gave her to his other Son, Hephaestus the blacksmith of the Gods, who was very malformed but had a good strong heart.

Although Aphrodite loved her Husband–after all she could do nothing else–perhaps he didn’t excite her in the way other men did. Other men like Ares.

So began one of the most torrid love affairs in history; that of Love & War.

It’s no wonder they were so fatefully attracted to each other; he being the embodiment of everything male from his statuesque physique to his badass attitude and she being the essence of everything female from her outward beauty to her carnal desires. They were destined to fall in love. Who else could contend with and quench their fiery passions but each other?

That was, until Helios the Sun God spied them lying together naked in the woods one morning as he passed overhead and ratted out the couple. The Olympians weren’t happy. Hephaestus was very angry with his Wife and his Brother. Yet, even though they were shamed and chastised, they continued their affair in secret. Aphrodite went on to bear Ares five children, the most famous of which is Eros the Winged God of Love.

In light of the above, I would like to introduce you to….

Inside the Heart of every Warrior breathes the Soul of a Hero–even within The Heart of War.

Meet Ares God of War, the greatest Warrior the world has ever known. He’s moody, grumpy, dominant, ravenously sexual, and above all, built like a Greek God.

Suspected of killing his Daughter in-Law, Psyche, and long in exile from Olympus, the solitude of Ares’ secluded Greek Isle is interrupted when Magdalena MacLeod a plucky little Fey washes up on his shore after believing she’s been shipwrecked. It’s not mere fate that has brought the unlikely couple together yet it may be what tears them apart.

Get lost in this sweeping dark saga of lust, rage, revenge, and redemption. Battle Ancient Gods while falling in love with Ares God of War and Alena MacLeod. They share a love that will rock the world from the heights of Olympus to the Celtic moors.

The entire OF WAR Series contains scenes of graphic sex and violence. As such, they are intended for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY and NOT recommended for the Faint of Heart.
