"The next installment of the popular Aphrodite series!"
Julie Kenner's Aphrodite books are just a delight
to read. It is absolutely impossible for me to read these
slowly. They are much too enjoyable and I end up reading
them in one sitting.
In APHRODITE'S SECRET Lane Kent's story is told.
Lane had a hot and heavy affair with Jason years ago and
when she told him she was pregnant, he did a vanishing
act. She's never gotten over him but her delightful son
Davy more than makes up for it.
Now eight years later Jason is back. There are
secrets he kept from Lane, one of which was that he is one
of the Protectors and that means Davy is a 'halfling'.
Another secret is the fact of who Jason's father is and
where Jason's been for the past seven years.
All Jason wants is to figure out how to get his
family back. He knows he's missed out on Davy's formative
years but it looks to him that Lane has done an excellent
job of raising Davy to this point. Now on the eve of
Davy's seventh birthday, Jason really needs to have a long
talk with Lane especially before Davy comes into his full
Lane thinks she got over Jason a long time ago when
he skipped out on her and their unborn child but Lane has
another think coming! She is a long way from being over
Jason but she fights that attraction tooth and nail! When
Davy is kidnapped, Jason is the only one Lane can turn to
and trust. She knows that Jason will save their son or die
I thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous installment in
the Aphrodite's series. As a bonus, we also get to revisit
ZoŽ, Taylor, Deena, Hoop and Elmer, the ferret from the
previous books. What more can you ask for? I was in
Protector heaven! Now I'm eagerly looking forward to what
Julie Kenner has in mind for Mordi!
