A trip of a lifetime, a journey to save herself led Ava to Greece. While looking through the ancient ruins there she realized a truth that so few truly grasp… That sometimes History isn’t always right, and what’s more, sometimes Myths are far more than just that. In possession of a Book that could end a Gods life she sees things that no other human could. She sees them. And of course being her, pisses one of them off.
The God of War. He’s not a warm and fuzzy kind of guy. He’s a God with an attitude, but worse, he’s a God that’s got zero sense of humor. Seeing Ava he is instantly fascinated by her, and pissed off beyond all reason the moment she opens her mouth. Too damn bad that mouth is so kissable.
Barely keeping himself from spanking Ava he leaves the young mortal to her own devices. Until a party. Dionysus is known for his lavish and over the top parties, as well as for forcing his brethren to attend and mingle with the mortals. Wouldn’t be such a bad gig, if Dion hadn’t invited the only mortal to make Ares blood heat.
Sparks fly but soon the God of War finds himself opening up to this little beauty an wanting more. That is until that Book was opened.
Now everything is in jeopardy. Will Ava get her happily ever after or will the God of War be a casualty in a War that he didn’t control?

Age: Too old to bother counting
Job: God of War
Interests: Mayhem, war, danger, travel and my woman Ava
Describe yourself: Tall, dark and dangerous. I take no shit, accept nothing at face value and am always watching for the knife coming at me from behind. I trust no one. Well, that was true until I met her. Ava, my Ava I trust with all I am and who I may come to be.
Pet Peeves: Insolent humans and pink shirts. A real man doesn’t wear pink no matter how secure he is in his masculinity; it’s not a powerful color. Black, black is a damn fine color.
A little Q&A with the God of War
May I call you Ares?
Ares, is there anything you can tell me that no other knows?
I prefer red wine with a meal even if it is chicken or pork. White, while it has its purposes, isn’t as soothing to the soul as its darker, richer counterpart.
How did you first meet Ava?
She was taking a tour of some of the temples in Athens when I first saw her. We started to talk and then she insulted me so I left.
Uh, oh my. Well… I’m guessing the two of you reconciled since you’re both sitting here, how did that happen?
Thanks to my brother Dionysus. You may know of him, he’s a good guy. He was having a big party for the grand opening of one of his new hotels and arranged for Ava to be there. He’d invited me and, since he’s one of my few relatives I can stand for more than two seconds at a go, I agreed to come. I’ve never once regretted that decision.
Well, congratulations to you both. Any advice you can give to those looking for love?
Don’t be an idiot. If there is someone in your life who is important say so. Don’t wait for a better moment, seize it and step up or you will regret it for the rest of time.
Excellent advice, thank you.
Name: Ava Von Maur
Job: Currently between paying gigs
Interests: Art, history and the amusing tidbits we mere mortals think we know about the Gods of Olympus
Describe yourself: I always thought I was tall until I met Ares, but he makes me feel practically dainty. Dark hair, greenish eyes and my best feature would have to be my skin. It tans perfectly every summer and I got lucky, no blemishes. I’ve been told I’m sarcastic but I see it as just being witty and those of lesser intelligence sadly just can appreciate it.
Pet Peeves: Candy packages that are too damn small. Really, you have to charge us an arm and a leg and then you only give us that miniscule amount, highway robbery!
A little Q&A with Ava
Anything you can share with us about Ares?
He’s a big old softie. He hates it when I say it but it’s true, at least for me. The rest of the beings in the universe aren’t so lucky to see it but I adore the fact I get to have something no one else has.
Favorite date you and he went on?
Oh, that’s a tough one. There have been a couple that have been so special. But I think the last one was pretty darn good and right near the top of the list. He took me to France and we went to this little place, off the beaten track where we had some of the best food ever. A little band was playing, soft and sweet music and he danced with me. He doesn’t do it often but every time he does its magical. The dancing I mean.
I would never have taken him for a dancer, nice tidbit to share.
He’s very light on his feet; he claims it’s from all those years of battle which I completely believe.
You said he’s light on his feet, has he ever come up behind you and scared the crap out of you?
More times than you know. It’s very irritating but he is trying to remember to make some sound, for me, even though it goes against all his instincts. How can I not love the big guy when he goes out of his way like that!

Ava: You never know what is around the next corner, but always be ready for it might just be the perfect man to complete your life and make each day special and amazing.
Ares: Keep your blades sharp, your guns oiled and always trust your gut. The instincts will always guide you best, whether in dangerous situations or in times of romance which can be equally dangerous actually.
Ava: That isn’t true.
Ares: Sure it is, I told you about what happened with Dion that one time right?
Ava: Oh…right. Well, that was an isolated incident.
