Aphrodite Calling

Sometimes it takes the power of the gods to reveal the woman within…

This story introduces Himeros – god of sexual desire, in his own hour of need, and Gina – a post-surgery, male-to-female transsexual woman struggling for acceptance and understanding in a world that doesn't allow anything outside the mainstream.

This is an unusual pairing, but the power of Aphrodite works in the most mysterious ways.

Thirty-two year old Gina is forced to confront her fears when she attends a high school reunion. Born with male genitalia, she spent her childhood and teen years living as a boy, and she has only now returned in an effort to put the past behind her so she can begin to live life without the continuing fear of loneliness and rejection.

Himeros is one of the erotes, an aspect of Eros, and as such it is his duty to answer the call of sexual desire whenever a human needs him. But he has been living among humans too long and his energy has waned. When he decides to accept one last call he finds a woman who is unique. A woman who answers his own call and offers everything he desires. A woman who understands the whole human experience, from every perspective. Has he finally found the one with whom even a god of desire could find fulfilment?

Forever, after all, is a long time to be alone.
