Desperate Housewives of Avalon

When given the opportunity to read a Saranna DeWylde book I don’t have to be asked twice or give it a second thought. I pounce! And I have never been disappointed! OMG her humor and her wit shine through with every character and interaction in every book! I mean, who combines immortal Gods and Goddesses with legendary ancient rulers and whips it into an entertaining and hilarious spoof of one of today’s most popular “reality” series? Ms. DeWylde does and she does it to perfection! If you happen to read this book when you are in a public area be forewarned! You WILL laugh out loud! You WILL be unable to stop reading! And you WILL want more when you are done!
Artemis is tired of being the immortal virgin…. She wants her V card punched and thanks to Aphrodite and her prodding a trip to Avalon to try and snare Mordred, bastard son of King Arthur and Morgan, and like his father one of the resident “attractions” for a hot and quick hook up. Aphrodite hopefully had chosen the right man for her but when another magic gets involved things could seriously go awry.
Guinevere du Lac might have wished she had made another choice than to spend eternity with Lance but she had made her bed and had to live with her choices. Even though he hadn’t shared that bed in over a century but when he walked out the door voicing his own similar concerns it still hurt. Could she even find a way to make things right with the one man who had given her everything, including a crown? Despite still loving Arthur she needed to let him find a way to love another and forget the pain she put him through.
Morgan might have agreed to her friend Aphrodite’s plan to hook her son up with the virgin goddess of the hunt but she couldn’t put her self in the same place. Or could she? Lance had always been the one she pined for. If he walked into her place and wanted her just as a booty call could she walk away from the most handsome man she had ever seen and the same one who she had always wanted after he was through with her? Rebound sex was amazing but not when her heart was involved.
Aphrodite needed to get away from Ares. She had always thought he was the one for her but his reluctance to give her his heart, or declaration of his love, had finally sunk in and given her pause. Tagging along with Artemis was just the thing she needed. The goddess of love needed to make sure things went smoothly with her friend and if she found out something more about her own heart on the way even better. Aeron was supposed to be a back up for her friend but there was just something about those Gods of War that got under her skin.
Vivienne du Lac, Lady of the Lake, needed to remedy a mistake she had made centuries ago. Morgan was supposed to end up with Lance, her son, not Gwen. Her own accursed love life aside she needed to help them along. Taunted by Mordred in the guise of his father Arthur, she uses her power to curse him might just get her into trouble with the Goddess of Love who had just arrived. When she is faced with losing her powers it might take more than a declaration from a man she had trusted by her side for centuries for her to accept his offer.
A full cast of immortals combine to make this a fantastic romp! The tug of war for Aphrodite’s heart between Ares and Aeron, the declaration of love from a man no longer the young boy Vivienne had always saw him as and the tangled web of love and devotion that the King and his Queen had let their hearts weave into a mess even the Goddess of Love could not untwine. The connection between Morgan and Lance was immediate and exciting as they indulge without thought of the future. Finally the virgin huntress Artemis finds the one man who she thinks can punch her ticket but the bad boy of Avalon can never be a part of her future…unless the curse that the Lady of the Lake put on him has more truth to it than they ever thought. A truth that would bind them together for an eternity.
Wrapped up together these stories are a very entertaining and humorous read. I loved it and whipped through this story in one sitting! Saranna DeWylde is one of the best comedic romance writers today and her ability to weave a tale makes her a favorite.
