Read an Excerpt

Ari looked at the man standing before her. Moonlight illuminated his naked form, turning the planes and hollows of his chest and abdomen into a study of shadows and light. Dark hair curled over his chest and between his pectorals to follow a straight line over his abdomen and down to the cock standing at attention in a nest of black hair. Ari licked her lips at the sight of his erection, her shame at her own scarred visage forgotten. In this light, she, too, would be shadows and light, not pink and white scars jagged against creamy flesh.

He extended his hand, and she took it. Warmth zinged up her arm. She looked at him, not wanting to step forward if it meant breaking the spell of the moment. Standing apart from him seemed abhorrent. "Who are you?" she asked.

"Just a man."

Ari chuckled. She'd never imagine him as just a man, though a man he most definitely was. "Do you not have a name, just a man?"

He laughed and pulled her forward. Ari fit neatly into the circle of his arms, his shoulder the perfect height for her to rest her head. A lazy hand caressed her back from neck to tailbone, then back again. The motion soothed her. "I am called many things. If you need to shout out something in your passion, you can call me a god."

His bold words should have shocked her. Instead, in her dream, she could easily imagine him as a Greek deity. "All right then." She pressed her lips to his shoulder, the skin warm. "I shall trust the gods to know I do so at your behest." She laved the spot where her lips had touched with her tongue.

"Oh, they know." She didn't need to see him to know he smiled, for it filled his voice. He stepped back and gently led her down to ablanket.

Ari lay back on the soft fabric, the sand form-fitted to her shape beneath her. He stretched out over her, one hand above her head, the fingers playing with her hair, the other idly caressing her ribs and breasts. Her nipples thrust up at him. Bending his head, he laved one distended tip with his tongue. The gentle touch rocketed through her body and had her arching her back to beg for more.

"Mmm, so beautiful," he murmured against her flesh. Sliding down her body, he brought his other hand down to fondle the breast he wasn't kissing. He wrapped his lips around a nipple and sucked deep. Ari threaded her fingers through his hair and cried out.

This man--this god--made her feel beautiful. Each caress of his tongue, his lips, over her flesh sent fresh shocks through her system. Her legs moved restlessly against the blanket. Her pussy ached to be touched. Moisture coated her nether lips, and she wanted to feel him rising over her, fucking her on the beach. She held him to her breast with a murmured, "please."

His exquisite lips traveled over her flesh. Scars she knew must be there faded beneath his touch. The mocking people in the party receded into the dark parts of her mind. It was only her own fears she conjured, and this man took them away. Whoever he was, she thanked him and wished he didn't only live in her mind. With gentle nips, he slid lower over her body. His tongue swirled in her navel, then he rested between her parted thighs.

He licked her. Ari's breath caught in her throat as he parted her labia and blew a hot, moist breath against her sex. She arched and cried out as his tongue teased tiny circles around her clit. "Oh, god! Please!" she begged.

Her hips moved, up and down, as she begged for release with her body. It had been long--too long--since she'd had sex. She wanted him, his entire silken, hard length inside her. And she wanted it now.

"Fuck me!" A breeze carried her words away. She didn't care who heard.

He chuckled. The husky, masculine sound curled her toes and nearly set off her perilously close orgasm. He moved over her body and settled between her legs. The tip of his cock brushed her folds. Ari wanted deeper contact, a more intimate touch from him. He braced his weight on his arms. "Do you believe you're beautiful?"

Ari licked her lips. She wanted to say yes. In her mind's eye, she saw the scars criss-crossing her body and the looks of scorn from the partygoers. Closing her eyes, she shook her head. "No." The tiny word emerged as a squeak.

He slid inside. "Believe it."

    Left Hanging. There just wasn't enough conflict to create a fully developed story. The party scene, which put Thanos in a compromising position and Ari misunderstanding it, just wasn't enough for me as a "test" to their relationship. Plus, it was never explained why Thanos just happened to be a plastic surgeon in her city. I also never understood how a god couldn't heal Ari of her scars. And most importantly, how do a scarred human and immortal god live happily ever after?
