You may only think of Eros on Valentine’s Day, but he’s thinking about your love life year round. Thanks to help from Tall, Dark and Devine author Jenna Bennett, Eros is steaming up the Waterwold Mermaid lagoon with Avery Flynn.
No! Not that way. You pervs.
So how do you feel about the whole fat baby in diapers image you’ve got?
How do you think I feel, Avery? I mean, look at me! Does this look like a baby in diapers to you? I’m a primordial god, born of Darkness and Night in the abyss before the earth was formed. A Greek god, no less. Tall, dark and divine. Diapers? Sheesh.
*Drools on self in the lagoon because he’s right, the man is HOT* The bow and arrow, are they real or just public relations?
Real. Unfortunately. But I’ve put them away, I swear. They’re nothing but trouble. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s much better when people fall in love without the arrows. Just look at what happened with Psyche. Three thousand years wasted on the chit, and it wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for those bloody arrows. So no more arrows for me.
What advice do you give to the lovelorn?
Keep looking. There’s someone out there for everyone. Sometimes it just takes divine intervention to find them. Call Made in Heaven if you run out of patience. (Hey, a god’s gotta make a living somehow. It’s not like I can snap my fingers and have electricity, you know. ConEd still wants to get paid.)
Made in Heaven, I love the name of your matchmaking business. What’s the explanation for those who seem to fall in and out of love constantly? Is it a love addiction or have you started drinking heavily again and are just flinging arrows this way and that?
I’m not drinking. Why would I drink? I have Annie and an endless supply of cookies. It’s a good thing I’m immortal and unchanging, or I’d be fat by now.
I imagine Dion might have something to do with it, though. D’you know Dionysus? It sounds like something he’d be a party to.
It does sound like him. *sigh* He’s so dreamy. What are the three worst places to meet true love?
The worst places? Dionysus’s bar… although it worked out all right for me. Prison. Boot camp?
I’m not sure it matters. True love is true love, right? It conquers all. Even prison. Or boot camp.
What are your favorite romantic movies?
My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Casablanca. The Princess Bride.
Excellent choices! Kissing a frog – could it work?
You’re the one down there in the water with the frogs, sweetheart. Why don’t you give it a try and let me know?
You know, I just might.
Eros, the Greek god of love, swore off the useless emotion after his ex ran off with some Viking godling. He’s lost all interest in his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, until he spots the sweet baker who works across the street. Before she stirs his sullen heart, he’ll match her and get back to his ambrosia-laced wine in no time.Lonely baker Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds exactly like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter, workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.
