Overview

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Julie Kenner aka J. Kenner ...

“Julie Kenner does it again! This follow-up to the hilarious and amazing Aphrodite’s Kiss is filled with the same sense of fun and originality as the first. Excellent reading!”—RT Book Reviews

Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy—or maybe they just want the belt.

Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?

Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.

Or is there?

    This was my first book out of the series. This one was part of

    This was my first book out of the series. This one was part of the bundle deal under The Bodyguards, which has 5 books by different author's. I think I would have like the story on Zoe and how she saved the world, because it was hinted at in this book and had some interesting secondary character's that I am sure were in book 1. Even though I didn't read the other's, I wasn't totally lost in starting with this story. It would have just made this story richer. I won't go into detail about the plot, because that has been done, but this is certainly different, sometimes in a good way. You will laugh a lot in this story, which is very unique. I felt sorry for Tracy but she overcame a lot to fall in love with her superhero. Does have sex descriptions, so be warned, but not in the erotica way. (ljb)

    Aphrodite¿s Passion by Julie Kenner Protectors/Superheros Series

    Aphrodite’s Passion by Julie Kenner
    Protectors/Superheros Series Book 2 (4th story)
    Hale has some issues with mortals. As a famous romance cover model he enjoys their attentions and he’ll protect them, but that’s as far as it goes. Well, until his sister Zoe went and married one. Now Taylor and his friends are mortals that Hale…..well he likes them…..against his will of course. So when he is assigned to find Aphrodite’s Girdle and has to get close to a mortal he figures he’ll do what he does best. He’ll seduce her, get the belt and be on his way. That was his plan anyways.




    Tracy Tannin is far from famous like her grandmother was. In fact, she finds herself rather plain. When she finds an unfashionable belt her grandma left her, she starts wearing it for confidence and it seems to work. Suddenly men are giving her attention and asking her out. And mugging her. Her life takes a sudden turn and at least the handsome Hale is there to help her.




    One of Hale’s superpowers is animalinguist, he can talk to animals. His constant companion is Elmer the ferret. The author does a remarkable job of bringing Elmer to life and he often steals the show with his thoughts and comments. This is actually the fourth story with some of the same characters. If you enjoy series you’ll want to start with The Cat’s Fancy, Aphrodite’s Kiss and Aphrodite’s Embrace. The next book in the series is Aphrodite’s Secret.

    She's done it again!!!

    What more do you need in a book but a guy who is really a superhero? Well, this is one of these books. Julie Kenner is a great author and her first two books, THE CAT'S FANCY and APHRODITE'S KISS, were fun to read! Her newest book is just as good. And Hale is a wonderful hero who melts your heart. I could not put this one down!

    engaging metaphysical romantic suspense

    Protector Hale looks at mortals with disdain except for his half-sister Zoe, who he rationalizes has some real blood flowing in her veins to overcome her tainted side. Hale is assigned to obtain Aphrodite's Girdle, a magical artifact that has been missing for years has suddenly surfaced. If Hieronymous the outcast former Protector gains the belt, he might control the world. <P>Mortal Tracy Tannin wears the belt though she has no idea what she is wearing. All she knows is that she, a plain Jane, now has males chasing after her. Hale knows he must not use his powers to acquire the belt, so he plans to seduce her into giving it to him. However, to his chagrin he finds himself wanting Tracy and not just for a one-night stand even if he rationalizes that the Girdle is doing this to him. <P> The sequel to APHRODITE¿S KISS, APHRODITE¿S PASSION, is an engaging metaphysical romantic suspense. Readers will gain immense pleasure from the amusing plot. The lead characters are a delight as both share love and denial. Hale refuses to accept he could ever love a creature so beneath him like his mortal beloved and Tracy cannot believe that she could capture the heart of this God-like hunk without donning the belt. The story line is amusing though the intrigue elements seem more of a diversion. The return of the cast from the previous novel adds to the fun and hopefully leads to a certain cousin starring in Julie Kenner¿s next Aphrodite¿s tale. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Kenner does it again!!!!

    Julie Kenner has brought us another wonderful story in the Aphrodite Series. This one with the delectable Hale as the hero. With her usual flare for comedy and romance, Kenner tells a tale that is warm, funny and incredibly sexy. Can¿t wait for the next installment!

    What a hero!

    Hale. Hale. Hale. I adored Hale as the hero in this book! A romance cover model who's assignment is to save the world. It's funny, sexy, and best of all -- there's Mordi. Highly recommended.
