PLAYING FOR KEEPS
Book 2 of the When Worlds Collide series of modern mythology tales
Long ago, mortals worshipped the deities of Olympus , which in turn gave them purpose. Often the immortals mingled with those who pleased them, taking lovers where they wished, but rarely allowing their lives to be affected by them.
In the modern age, with mortals believing in them less and less, quite a few of the Olympians have withdrawn, ignoring the mortal realm completely. Some live partially among the mortals, but return often to Olympus . A select few found themselves fascinated with the mortal world, and chose to completely live among mortals, some even finding love.

There she meets Pothos (God of Passion) and Himeros (God of Sexual Desire), who set about to seduce her; a seduction she is more than willing to let happen. After all, they're not men, they're Gods.
