Megan's 5 star rated Contemporary Romance

Wednesday, 29 June 2011


Hi I’m Kat Holmes and I’d like to thank Megan for having us here today. You might be wondering why I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs right now. I’m waiting for Aphrodite, the star of my book Working Under Covers to arrive. Gods arrive whenever they arrive.
In the meantime, here's the book's blurb:

Due to the economy, the Gods of Olympus are now forced to work among mortals. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty decides to open her own Internet dating service in Los Angeles. Taking on the name Ariel Schell to hide her true identity, she opens Venus Connections.
Jordan Cade is a retired cop turned PI. But when several women go missing, his former boss drags him back for one last assignment. The only thing the women have in common is a dating service.

All Aphrodite wants is to earn a living. All Jordan wants is to find the missing women. But Fate has other plans and a little under covers work may be needed.

Lights flash and the seated across from the author is Aphrodite in all her glory. She may be late but she does know how to make an entrance.

KH: Hi Aphrodite, thanks for coming.

A: Oh anytime. You are one of my favorite mortals after all since you told my autobiography. I have one question for you first though. Why is it pitched as fiction?

KH: Um, well, um…that is to say most people wouldn’t believe these were real events and I felt it too important to get your story out there.

A: I guess that makes as much sense as anything else you mortals do.

KH: Yes well, moving on. Your story is the first true accounting disguised as fiction of the gods coming down to work. Why are you gods, rich beyond measure, suddenly getting jobs?

A: <snorts> We USED to be rich until those CEO’s in the banks decided to get greedy. Once the banks got in trouble and the government had to bail em all out, people started losing their jobs as the economy nosedived. Now people barely have enough money for food and shelter. They sure as heck don’t have enough to continue giving us tributes.

KH: Are you saying that the gods are having money woes?

A: Big time. It’s a disgrace. So Daddy dearest, Zeus informed us we’d all have to go out and earn a living.

KH: I see. There’s a rumor going around that he’s letting all of you work to support him while he lounges around eating popcorn and watching television. Is that true?

A: No comment. After all, I still have to face him at the celestial parties and a pissed off Zeus is not a pretty thing.

KH: I can understand that. So, what type of work are you doing?

A: Well I am the Goddess of Love so I decided to play on my strengths. I took the mortal name of Ariel Schell and moved to Los Angeles. There I opened my own Internet dating service. As you can guess, with me in charge it’s doing EXTREMELY well. J

KH: <laughs> Yes I bet it is. So do you enjoy working?

A: <shrugs> It’s a living. But things recently got really exciting as you documented in my story. I won’t give the details away but it involves a hunky guy, some really hot steamy make-out sessions, and a bit of intrigue too.

KH: That’s true. And without giving anything away I have to say the guy you end up with is a surprise. Completely the opposite of you in every way.

A: <grins> Well they say opposites attract. I guess it’s true.

KH: Before we end this could you tell the readers which god’s story is coming next?

A: Well I believe you got Hera to agree to let you tell her story. And what a story she has to tell after eons of being married to Zeus and suffering through his countless affairs. What did you call her story again?

KH: Heart Of The Queen. Seemed fitting. Her story comes out September of this year. But yours, Working Under Covers has already released.

A: Well, naturally I should be the first. I am the Goddess of Love after all and it is a love story.

KH: Yes too right. Thank you so much for spending some time here. I really appreciate it.

A: Not a problem. Now if you’ll excuse me, I left my guy in bed buck naked and sleeping. Time for me to “get him up” so to speak.

And with a grin Aphrodite vanishes

Thanks for introducing us to Aphrodite, Kat.
