  • There’s bound to be pressure when it takes 2500 years to get to a second date. Which is exactly why Theo Rockman, a.k.a. Prometheus, would rather not go. With his best friend gravely injured and the fate of humanity still on the line, Theo has all sorts of creative excuses to avoid dating swoon-worthy god and love of his life, Hephaestus.
    YA romantic comedy gets an epic mythological twist in the free (at select retailers) short story A Date of Godlike Proportions (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy Book 2.5). Being human hasn’t killed Theo, but this date just might.

    Excerpt:


    Great. The cavalry had arrived. I flicked my gaze over to my other best friend Hannah, staring at

    me incredulously from her position in the doorway, where she had joined Festos.

    Festos patted Hannah on the shoulder affectionately before edging past her to leave.

    I reluctantly tore my eyes from his retreating figure to meet her bemused gaze.

    Allies. That’s what I needed. “There’s too much at stake right now—like your future for example—

    for us to be going out on a—”

    She flapped a hand at me. “Get dressed.”

    I looked down at what I was wearing. Which was basically what I always wore. A long-sleeved

    black T-shirt and baggy black pants. “I’m dressed.”

    Hannah rolled her eyes. “Pierce,” she called out.

    Her boyfriend trotted into the room at her call. “Yeah, love?”

    Hannah pointed to a spot in front of me. “Stand there and look pretty, so this idiot gets the picture.”

    Pierce nodded. He got into position and, with a toss of his blond tousled head, adopted the most

    pouty model boy expression imaginable. He winked at me, obviously amused.

    Hannah blinked at him. “Whoa. That’s pretty … pretty.”

    “Down, Saul,” I said. “Besides, he’s the God of Love. I’m sure there’s some kind of inherent pretty

    built into his DNA. With me?” I cast a skeptical look down at myself. “Festos knows what he’s getting.”

    Pierce pulled up a desk chair and turned it around to straddle it.

    Hannah kicked my legs away so she could sit down on the bed next to Sophie. She picked her

    friend’s hand up to clasp between her own. Her lip quivered as she stared at her friend but she

    quickly replaced any concern with a determined glare my way.

    She crossed her legs and leaned forward toward me. “Have you seen that boy’s room? It’s like a

    hurricane went off in there. He’s going nuts trying to find the perfect outfit for this special event and

    you can’t even get changed?” She tucked a strand of her blond hair behind her ear.

    I swung my head in Sophie’s direction. “Did you not notice your bestie lying there unconscious?”

    Her hand tightened on Sophie’s. “Don’t be an idiot. Or drag Soph into this. We’re here. Nothing

    else is going to happen to her. She needs to heal. And don’t pull any of that ‘fate of the universe’ crap

    either. It’s one night. So, next excuse. I’ll shoot that down too.”

    I closed my eyes. There was silence for a blessed moment.

    “You feel guilty, don’t you?” She spoke softly.

    I shrugged, my eyes still closed.

    I felt her make the sign of the cross over me. “I absolve you of guilt, Prometheus.”

    I gave a faint smile. “I’m not Catholic.”

    “Well, I have no idea how to absolve a Greek God.”

    “Titan,” I murmured. “And I’m not even that anymore.”
