Overview

Nominated as BEST BOOK OF 2011 in the GLBT FANTASY ROMANCE category by reviewers at The Romance Reviews.

A 17,000 word erotic romance novella including menage a trois (MMF & MFM).

Three people. One erotic fantasy. And a twentieth wedding anniversary like no other.

Jeannie yearns for the return of passion in her marriage. Jake craves new excitement in the form of another man in a way that will not upset the balance of his marriage nor his undying love for his wife. Pothos, the god of sexual yearning, is one of the erotes and an aspect of Eros, the Olympian god of desire.

On the last night of winter this couple's distinctive yearning has called to Pothos, and by the power of the erotes, he intends to rekindle the flame of Jake and Jeannie’s passion in a night of desire that will be the ultimate platinum anniversary gift.

And when the gods of love decide your marriage needs a boost, they never do it by halves...

Platinum Passion is the first in the Gods of Love series of stand-alone novellas that have the erotes as a common theme.

The erotes:
Pothos – god of sexual yearning
Himeros – god of sexual desire
Anteros – god of unrequited/requited love

In this version of the ancient Greek myth, the erotes are aspects of Eros, the primal god of desire, and the children of Aphrodite.

This story contains strong sexual language and graphic love scenes. It is suitable for Adult readers only.

    The first book in the Gods of Love series is a fast, red hot ero

    The first book in the Gods of Love series is a fast, red hot erotic fantasy including MMF and MFM.
    Pothos the God of sexual yearning helps a young couple rejuvenate their sex life on their twentieth anniversary by giving them a night of passion worthy of a platinum anniversary.
    The love between Jeannie and Jake is obvious and the author conveys that in every word and action that the couple speaks. The emotions and the fantasy created by Pothos are vivid and detailed drawing the reader along with the couple as they rekindle their love and maybe find they have room for more.
    This is an enchanting fast read that heats the blood and makes the reader wish it could happen to them.

    Must say I was surprised.. this book had quite a lot of passion

    Must say I was surprised.. this book had quite a lot of passion and erotica to be a very hot read.  Its short but hits the spot.  




    Jake and Jeannie are the typical married couple of 20 years ...and have adapted to the normal routine and lost the lust of marriage..  They meet Pothos who changes everything.  who helped them open up and recreate the spark.  It was excellent insight.

    I think what I like most about these stories so far is how completely accepting they are of people or ideas that are outside the norm.  These stories are short, not allowing a lot of time for character development or much plot.




    The first novella in the series, it read a lot like any other MMF erotica.  Though, I did like how the menage was portrayed as sort of an extension of a loving marriage, rather than major kink (even though there was plenty of that!).  She is completely unwilling to go further without her husband.




    I have a hard time rating stories that are this short because you really can't judge them on the same basis as a full novel.  You can't, realistically become as invested in the characters.  There isn't as much time to develop a complex plot.  And it was erotica, so yeah.

    4stars -- Turning a Flicker Into A Flame This very brief novele

    4stars -- Turning a Flicker Into A Flame

    This very brief novelette is all about fanning that mundane flicker back into a flame. After twenty years, Jenny & Jake are like so many couples who have become so comfortable with each other that their flame has dimmed to a flicker. Guided by the Eros erote, Pothos, they explore their hidden sexual desires.

    Although part of a series I thought this read quite well as a stand-alone and I am looking forward to the other novellas of the series.

    Those looking for a short and sexy read to jumpstart your day ha

    Those looking for a short and sexy read to jumpstart your day have found just the prescription with Platinum Passion by Jennifer Lynne. From the very start the reader is drawn into a magical dream-like world where all your fantasies are met and before you know it you've reached the end of the journey with a satisfied exhalation.

    As the first book in the Gods of Love series the reader is given a gentle introduction to the world of the erotes, Greek gods of love whose purpose is to bring romance to lovers who have lost their way. This book features Pothos who's super sexy and the consummate lover. I have to admit I fell a little in love with him myself. He's a bit old-fashioned with his speech which was endearing but very knowledgable in the ways of love. He's just what harried couple Jeannie and Jake need on the night of their twentieth wedding anniversary when the chaos of life has led them to lose sight of their love for each other. This couple is reminiscent of many where you get busy living life and don't take the time needed to rejuvenize your relationship, things get taken for granted. This made them easy to relate to and I found myself smiling when they rededicated themselves to their relationship.

    The sexual interludes in this story were intense and nicely spaced throughout the novella. There was a sense of playfulness amongst all the steaminess that added a nice layer to the threesome. The mythos of the erotes was just touched on in this story and I hope to learn more about them as the series continues. It's a clever premise and as gods of love you know you'll be rewarded with satisfying sexual interludes.

    With two (or hopefully) more gods yet to make an appearance I'll be waiting in breathless anticipation to revisit this sexy and magical world. Jennifer Lynne has created a series that makes me want to make a wish myself...write faster. With an intriguing premise and sexiness oozing from every page this is a read that will have you wanting to make a wish too.

    Pothos God of Sexual Yearning visits an aussie couple on their 2

    Pothos God of Sexual Yearning visits an aussie couple on their 20th Anniversay night to ignite the passion that's been non-existent lately.

    Jeannie has been wanting the spark back and Jake has had a fantasy of a man joining them in bed, as much for him as for her. Believing Pothos' visit is a dream they give into their wildest desires - and end up spending one sweaty, passion filled night on the beach with the God of Love.

    This short novella begun with almost a dream like haze, Lynne really wrote it so dream like it didn't feel corny or fake but smooth flowing like a dream would. Whenever the point of view shifted to Jake things became more substantial and real, from emotions to urges.

    I liked Pothos and Jake the best, Jeannie was mostly fighting her connection to Pothos even though she believed she was dreaming, which made her uber loyal, or aware that it wasn't just a dream after all. That little ½ star that would have made this novella great was the dialogue, it needed a tad bit more believability and bit less cliché.

    Talking about the hotness rating of this book, sizzling! This really was ***** romance! With the ****play, girl sandwich and a guy sandwich Platinum Passion was all kind of delicious with one adonis of a Greek god of love and yearning thrown in the mix!

    Hot with Heart.

    This story is hot....did I mention hot? It's hot. But though this story involves some very spicy threesome action, the author does an artful job of establishing a believable and heartfelt romance between Jeannie and Jack. And throw in the intriguing paranormal premise that sets the story in motion and I was hooked. A thoroughly enjoyable erotic romance.

    Great short romance!

    I really enjoyed this story! It was short, sweet, and super hot. I loved the concept of a 20 year marriage grown a bit dull, though they loved each other completely. It mirrored modern problems. Enter Pathos to spice things up! The author used the emotions of the main characters to deepen the romance. Well handled - a def must read!
