Overview

“This laugh out loud funny book is sexy, compelling, and worth not taking bathroom breaks.”—A Romance Review

“Aphrodite’s Flame delivers humor and thrills, plus much more.”—RT Book Reviews

Mordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there—Hieronymous Black—and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now—and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.

Isole Frost knows all about Mordi’s past, and she believes him when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys, and nothing Mordi says can sway her. He may be the dark-haired, green-eyed man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong. And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice—or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!

    Aphrodite¿s Flame by Julie Kenner Protectors/Superhero Series Bo

    Aphrodite’s Flame by Julie Kenner
    Protectors/Superhero Series Book 4 (6th story)
    Mordichai Black didn’t have much going his way. His Outcast Protector father hated mortals and Mordi was a Halfling. His mortal mother considered him a freak and sent him to his loveless evil father. Mordi was caught up in a world of wanting to be a good Protector and yet yearning his father’s affection. Finally he realized that only one of those things would be possible for him. 




    Isole Frost had to face the fact that other Protectors believed that she didn’t earn her status as a Protector or her new promotion, but that it had been handed to her as the niece of the High Elder. On top of all that she now has a high profile case of an Outcast she needs to test to see if he really is a good guy now and can be reinstated to the Council. And then there’s the handsome guy working with her who’s dangerous to her in more than one way. 




    Mordi is one of those characters who’s been in most all of the books. You can see where the war between good and evil is fought within him and that he’s just a lost little boy. You rooted for him to do the right thing, but his desire for Dearest Daddy’s love was just too strong. It made this story all the more exciting. As with the previous books the author brings in the other characters. It’s been my favorite kind of series as they had roles in their own books as well as the other stories. The final story is in the Anthology: These Boots Were Made for Stomping – A Step in the Right Direction.

    Just Ok

    book was ok, don't think I would pursue the series. Its kind of like a supermanish type story but with Demigods if you, little sex, definately a young adult book. Felt like the story just went back and forth on the same thing - 1st what he was thinking then what she was thinking about the same thing.

    Exciting romantic fantasy

    The Protector bureaucracy keeps humans safe from misuse of power by Outcast Protectors. When an Outcast pleads for reinstatement they typically are sent to Re-Assimilation Counselors like empath Izzy Frost even though she is only a half-breed and has limited powers. Her current client is the baddest of the bad Hieronymus Black, who insists he has seen the light. Concerned High Elder Zephron knows how law breaking Hieronymus has been so he assigns his cleanest agent, Mordi Black to assist Izzy. Mordi¿s record of finding traitors is perfect perhaps because of his reaction to his evil traitorous father to stay 100% pure and law abiding................................. Reading his mind, Izzy believes Hieronymus has reformed. Also a Halfling Mordi refuses to believe that Hieronymus has changed; he thinks either Izzy went rogue or the Outsider has pulled a brilliant ruse. Already in love with Izzy, Mordi investigates Hieronymus¿ claim of reformation, but someone wants him and Izzy dead; he concludes that his sire is behind this, but has no proof tying his dad to the crime................................ . The fourth Aphrodite¿s tale is a terrific romantic fantasy with intertwining amateur sleuth elements and will be recognized as one of the sub-genre¿s top novels of the year. Readers will feel that love is all around them yet also experience the suspense of what about Black and the attempts to kill the lead couple. Besides a great romance and a fabulous investigative tale, Julie Kenner makes the fantasy elements seem real whether it is Izzy¿s sense of smell or her freezing skills let alone the abilities of the purebreds who appear genuinely walking along side us fans............................

    Mordi's turn for a story.

    Mordichai 'Mordi' Black could spot a traitor easily. Since he was his evil father's son, he knew what to look for. Therefore, Mordi has been helping to ferret out the traitors within the Protectors. Mordi's track record was impressive! The High Elder, Zephron, decided Mordi would be the perfect assistant for Izzy, who was beginning sessions with a new client. ............................ Isole 'Izzy' Frost is a Level V Re-Assimilation Counselor. When an Outcast (bad guy) want to prove s/he has had a change of heart and wishes to rejoin the Protectors, a counselor is sent to give tests and decide if the Outcast is sincere or not. Izzy's primary Protector trait is empathy. She can read minds of those she touches, smell the emotions of those she does not touch, can shoot freeze beams (which makes her name so perfect), and those are just a few of her minor Protector traits. But, like Mordi, she is a Halfling. Being half mortal and half super hero means she CAN'T do some of the things that the full blooded Protectors can do easily, such as levitate. Izzy's new client is Hieronymous Black, the most notorious Outcast of the entire Protector race! Izzy's powers have never failed. Therefore, when her powers tell her that Hieronymous HAS changed, she believes it. ...................... Mordi does NOT! No way. No how. It has got to be a trick. If so, why? And how could Hieronymous fool Izzy's empathy powers? It is impossible! Mordi (and some characters from previous books in this series) begin investigating. Sure enough, Mordi is on someone's hit list quickly. But nothing points to his vile sire. ..................... **** Since the plot needed a big synopsis, I left out the information on Mordi and Izzy's relationship, romance. But trust me on this, the two are very attracted to each other and love is in the air! ..................... Author Julie Kenner has done another outstanding job. Somehow the author makes these people with super powers seem totally normal. In fact, reading this series is as good as, if not better, than watching a new X-Men video. If I could give this novel more than the full five stars, I would. Highly recommended! *****
