To win the right to choose her husband, Aphrodite has to endure ten days in the company of Hephaestus, the fallen god of smithery. Except, everything about Heph freaks her out: he wears dirty clothes; he limps; his sacred animal is an ass. Meanwhile, he thinks she's a slag, and nothing but the means to an end. Do you want to learn the Greek myths the hot way? Surprisingly accurate mythology, Cockney speaking gods, and frisky erotica are mixed in this story full of humour and romance.


Katya Kolmakov was born and raised in the turbulent post-Soviet Saint Petersburg, Russia, in a posh but whimsical family of a professor of the Russian language and one of the first bankers in the former USSR. Two Master's degrees, sixteen years of teaching languages, literature and translation, and two tattoos later Katya lives in an odd rented house in Winnipeg, Canada, with her husband, her wonderful son, and a mad assortment of house plants. An avid baker, Katya grows vegetables and herbs in her garden, takes her kid to the zoo, and writes every evening.
