    Summary

    When they said that flames lick, that kisses consume, or that touches burn, all these, David had thought, were only metaphors. Certainly flames have no mouths; when Luke withdrew from David his mouth would still be there; and where their hands, then their arms, then their torsos touched, and their knees tangled, David still had skin, not crisped or burnt or even reddened. Still, there was something important about this metaphor, something powerful and insightful about the connection between flame and Luke - between fire and love.

    The brandy in David's glass flickered blue: David could feel the heat from it. This won't hurt, he thought. Luke wouldn't hurt me. He raised the glass to his lips.

    I need to read this book. Like now. But in other news this is super well written and I want more. No porn.

    It's not always interesting to be a god among mortals, but they are not without their surprises. Luke experiences a few days of the ordinary and the promisingly odd.

    Astrid thinks Luke really needs to get a new sense of humour. "Fending off all those women probably did his reflexes good, but David's too down to earth to like the attention from the newspaper people."
