Book Review: Julie Kenner’s Aphrodite’s Flame

Aphrodite's Flame


Julie Kenner

paranormal romance that was published by Love Spell on August 1, 2004 and has 338 pages.

Explore it on Goodreads or Amazon.

Other books by this author which I have reviewed include The Cat’s Fancy, Aphrodite’s Passion, Hell on Heels, On My Knees

Fourth in the Superhero Central romantic fantasy series revolving around different Protectors, all descendants of those whom we all thought were Greek gods.

My Take

Cut and fluffy romantic look at beings with inherited superpowers. Kenner has a nice light, humorous touch poking fun at bureaucracy (I do love the memos she includes!) and humiliating the villains with a campy approach to their James-y Bond-y lives even as she creates a homey atmosphere.

The Story

Mordichai Black has openly returned to the side of the good and has been proving himself over and over, but it’s not until he is teamed up with Isabelle Frost to assess a pretty big fish for Re-Assimilation that he finally reintegrates in with humanity.

The Cover and Title

The cover very accurately reflects the cartoony quality of the story with its cherub of a superman aiming his flaming arrow. I’m not sure where the title arises from unless it refers to the love that flames up so quickly between Mordi and Izzy.
