    amusing fantasy romance

    Being a half-breed should have some merit, but elementary school librarian Zoe Smith realizes that with all that comes responsibility as outlined by the Venerate Council of Protectors. Apparently half of her heritage is from a Protector while the rest comes from a mortal requiring Zoe to either register as an outcast or forfeit her superpower heritage. Zoe chooses to save the world with her powers. <P>Meanwhile private detective George Taylor seeks a missing magical stone for a client. His investigation leads to Zoe, who seems eerily seems to be the center of weirdness on the planet. While George vows to learn the truth, Zoe needs no powers except her heart to tell her he is the one for her. As they fall in love, they team up to take on a malevolent attempt for world domination. <P>APHRODITE¿S KISS is an amusing fantasy romance along the line of ¿Mom and Dad save the World¿. The story line is fun as Zoe behaves as if she is the Greatest American Hero except that she knows George is her other half. The romance adds spice to a fabulous tale that shows Julie Kenner saves readers who enjoy uniqueness in their novels from April showers. <P>Harriet Klausner

    it was ok

    I am a big Julie Kenner fan, and got addicted to her adventures of a demon hunting soccer mom series, but this wasn't as good. It was a cute story-definitely light reading.

    Great read

    Was a bit confusing at first. But was blown away with story the more it progressed. Easily a favorite new author. Funny, flirty and great action. Could easily identify with quirky main characters. All characters of story were identifiable and beleivable. Tried this full length story for small price and am now going to look for more by this author. More authors should try this approuch. Noone wants to blow their hard earned money on a dud, so getting a chreap peak at authors true writing and not a twenty page short story definetly helps. I know where to look now for a great new book. Writing was compelling and fun. Can't wait to try another. Speaking of which...

    Fun Read

    Do you love a hot, sexy, dominant vampire warrior? Especially when he's got several brothers that are equally hot and sexy? Well, if you do, then you'll love this book. Especially if you like a lot of action-packed scenes as well.

    Fated gives us all of the above, plus a spunky heroine, an adorable little girl and shapeshifters. Cara is a scientist that works with the genetics of plants. Manipulating things to make more disease resistant crops, that sort of thing. Plants are what she's comfortable with, other than her sister and daughter. Not dominant men that turn out to be vampires. Vampires that demand that she marry them right now because it's what's necessary to protect her daughter from the freaky, bad vampires.

    Talen is the warrior vampire that is on a mission to protect a little girl that they know the Kurjans (the freaky, bad vamps) want. He is the "strategic leader" of the realm, which includes vampires, shapeshifters, etc., and his family is the royal family - Talen's brother Dage is the King. Which adds up to one very alpha man. Once he meets Cara, he realizes that she is destined to be his. Unfortunately, the Kurjans want Cara too, as well as the daughter. Talen is determined that nobody is going to take her from him - despite her insistence that she can handle things herself.This book is fun and fast paced with lots of action sequences.

    The little girl is absolutely adorable and the scene where she wins over the big, macho vampires is hilarious. Cara is spunky and, despite a sketchy background, refuses to back down from a fight regardless of her fear and distrust. The science in the book is very interesting, making you want to see what's going to happen with it rather than leaving you scratching your head.

    The other characters in the book are very intriguing and you want to learn more about them. Even the ones that don't necessarily warrant their own story are fun to watch and add a lot to the story. Luckily, the author plans to write a book for each of the brothers (and I'm hoping she'll continue with some of the shapeshifter characters someday as well) so we will get to know them a lot better in the future.

    Fated gives us a new, interesting twist on vampire lore. It's a well written, fun, sexy book guaranteed to keep you reading from cover to cover. If you enjoy paranormal romances, and especially vampires, be sure and check it out! I promise you'll be waiting for the next brother's book by the time you're done.

    A Great Story for the Superhero in All Of Us!

    Ms. Kenner has created a great society! Her story was funny, adventerous, and a tearjerker! It was a great book by a very creative author; if anyone ever believed in superheoes, I strongly recommend this one! I can't wait to read Hale's story, and I hope for many more to come. Keep up the good work, Ms. Kenner!

    Not a must read, but...

    This book was pretty good. Not nearly as funny, and enjoyable of a read as the Carpe Demon series.
