The goddess Aphrodite - Venus to her friends - doesn't regret sacrificing her freedom to save her husband's life. She just wishes he could forgive her for all the pain she's caused him. But since she's trapped in the underworld and he can't stand the sight of her, it's not likely that she'll ever see him again... Unless Hephaestus's love proves strong enough to overcome their past.
This short story takes place between the events of Fury Scorned and Dark Fury.
About the Author
Nicola R. White is no stranger to the fantastic. Although there are no Furies in her family tree (that she knows of), she comes from a small city on the east coast of Canada where ghost stories and superstitions abound. She has worked on movie sets, as a bartender, in a lighthouse, and as a lawyer, and though she’s never been an exotic dancer like her character, Alex Hughes, she does know how to pole dance.
She has always been fascinated by the strange and morbid, and often stays up too late reading books that give her nightmares. She believes truth is stranger than fiction, and just a few of her heroes are Buffy, Dana Scully, and Xena.
Nicola is a member of Romance Writers of America and Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, and is an active member and supporter of the award-winning Romance Divas website and online forum.
