"Gods, Legends and Passion!"
Cytharea, godkin, daughter of Aphrodite, is irresistible to
mortal man. Not only that, but she must feed from the
sexual energy of man or she will die. She has spent years
as a captive of one man or another, because once a mortal
man has had her, he will not willingly give her up.
Raymond du Sable has heard the rumors of Cytharea, and
finally, he has found her. Now, he must steal her from her
current captive, because she is the key and his weapon to
overthrow the King of France.
Gerard d'Amiers is a Templar Knight, hired to transport
Cytharea to France, untouched and safe. Gerard was chosen
because he is the only man who can resist Cytharea and her
charms. When Gerard finds that he cannot resist Cytharea
and allow her to die, can he forgive himself of his sin?
Upon reaching France, Gerard's faith and vows are again at
stake. Will he follow his vows and faith or the love and
passion he feels for Cytharea?
Immortal Lust is set centuries ago, in 1191. The
plot was simple, yet intriguing to think that any woman
would endure what Cytharea has endured for centuries. Ms.
Dafoe did an excellent job of letting me get to know the
characters and their thoughts and feelings; enough so that
I could not only feel compassion for Cytharea, but also for
Gerard. He was hurt so very deeply years ago and turned
his back on women. He has a major struggle with himself
before he gives in to Cytharea, because he must choose
between her and her life, and his own faith and vows. The
feelings between these two characters were an almost
palpable thing and really drew me in. If you enjoy hot sex
coupled with an intriguing paranormal story, this is a must-
read for you.

A Multi-Author Series
They are children of the gods. Half-immortal, yet never whole. Until they find the one they burn to possess for all eternity…
For years, Raymond du Sable has chased rumors of a woman shrouded in legend, a woman of unearthly, hypnotic beauty. Finally, on Crusade, he finds her. She is Cytharea, daughter of Aphrodite, irresistible to mortal man — and Raymond's key to grasping the throne of France. To transport her there safely, Raymond hires a Templar Knight, Gerard d'Amiers. Sworn to chastity, Gerard has a deep mistrust of women, born of the infidelity of his boyhood love. Yet Cytharea stirs him in a way no woman ever has. And Cytharea herself is battling a deadly imperative — she must feed from the sexual energy of a man soon, or die.
Together, Gerard and Cytharea discover a passion so overpowering it shakes the very foundations of Gerard's faith. Upon reaching France, he must either abandon every vow he's ever made — or lose Cytharea to the abusive ambitions of a madman.
