The Adonis Touch
This is the second novella in my Aphrodite and Adonis series set on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Each spring and summer Aphrodite, goddess of love, and her lover Adonis reunite with each other and play a game of choosing a visiting couple to the island who need their unique help. Sexy and mischievous Aphrodite is complemented by sexy and sensitive Adonis who understands humans have more fragile feelings.
The Adonis Touch sees thirty-something Katie Murray arriving on holiday to the romantic island of Cyprus with the man in her life, Mike Sinclair. On the understanding they have separate rooms. She hopes their relationship might develop into something more, but she is still not completely over the untimely death of her first husband and only lover, childhood sweetheart, Paul. Can she put the past behind her, let go of her inhibitions and learn to love again?
On Cyprus in spring time, Aphrodite and Adonis are reunited after two seasons apart and in between renewing their love for each other they watch the influx of tourists to Paphos, choosing the next couple to benefit from their special help. Recognising the sadness in Katie’s eyes and the love Mike waits to share, the mythological couple are determined to do all in their power to ensure the two humans discover the joy that awaits them. Can Adonis work his magic touch to loosen Katie's inhibitions and allow her to experience a deeper love?
