New Review for Love's Immortal: Pantheon

Pantheon Full med

4 STARS from Romantic Times!!!

Congrats everyone!  Here is what it says:

"Mythology is the inspiration for this collection, which resonates with lust, love and liaisons.  These seven tales offer fresh takes on the gods, portraying them as flawed individuals with the same desires as the mortals they hunger for.  Their randy love-play, include menages and orgies, makes for a titilating read.

Summary:  Drea is afraid of "Becoming Persephone" when she hooks up with Hades in Dagmar Avery's story.  Aphrodite sends "Erato" on a special mission where he finds love. in a story by Cat Johnson.  In "Hephaestus Lays Down the Law,' by Tilly Greene, the god of the forge taches his unfaithful wife, Aphrodite, a lesson.  Iriana becomes "Pluto's Offering" when she's accused of being a witch in Selena Illyria's tale.

Can Edmond and the goddess Selena find a future together in "Seduction in Moonlight," by Diana DeRicci?  The vampire Drakon and his human lover, Esra, forge a "Dark Bond" with the goddess Nyx in a tale by Eliza Gayle.  And "The Spoils of War" entitle Ares to a beautiful young virgine in Kayleigh Jamison's story."

And in the depths of those wooded wilds she can keep her secrets well hidden.

It was at that moment he knew she wasn’t ill, with her chest rising and falling with ragged gasps.
Her breath was a hot brand against the hand holding her chin. “Bram,” she whispered, a plea of
“Selene,” he said, lingering as he stood before her. His head tilted to hers before he realized he
couldn’t stop himself. She gasped as he made contact, a seductive heat that filled him, made him
hungry in a way he had never imagined when his mouth covered hers.
He stepped back in a rush, dropping his hands as if he’d burned himself. Maybe he had. “Oh, God!
I’m sorry,” he gasped. He shook from the power of the kiss, of her lips as they melted against him.
Her eyes flashed at him and she snaked a hand to wrap around his head. “I’m not,” she whispered,
pulling him back down.
She controlled the kiss, the heat, the hunger. It was all Selene as his hands settled at her waist,
holding himself steady. His heart beat with a trip-hammer intensity against his rib cage as she urged
him on. She moaned softly when he pressed himself against her body, the shape of her form filling
him the way her kiss was filling his senses.
She shuddered in his hold when he flicked out his tongue, touching the edge of her soft mouth.
Her reaction shot through him like a liquid fire. He became consumed by her kiss, her touch. He
became lost in her as he took the kiss over from her, feeding off of her. She moaned again, deeper, a
vibration that heated his blood to boiling.
He forced himself to stop, to lift his head. Or he would make love to her.

Yet no amount of control can keep her life from changing when Cory steamrolls his way into her private world.

More on Amazon


And hopefully it will catch their attention. The SB's have begun a GoogleBomb campaign. Essentially the more links posted, the higher a search term appears when Googled.

The Term: Amazon Rank

From SBTB:

Amazon Rank

amazon rank
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): amazon ranked

1. To censor and exclude on the basis of adult content in literature (except for Playboy, Penthouse, dogfighting and graphic novels depicting incest orgies).

With more on their site here. A new definition has been made to exemplify Amazon's stupidity.


If you're not aware of what is happening (I wasn't until this morning), Amazon has decided to remove certain sectors of books from their search engines. Oh, if you dig you'll probably find it, or know each and every book title and author. But 1st and 2nd level searches? Nope, not there. BUT...BUT... You still might  stumble across the title in KINDLE! But not the paperback, or the hardback if there is one. They've effectively taken the books "off the shelf" and the only way you would be able to find one is to ask for it at the counter, if the counter person knew they had them. Many are finding the only way to find their own books is to do a hopscotch search through other books to locate them because they are not showing up even with their own name entered. And forget publisher searches. Entire publisher lists have been removed from the Amazon search engine.

If you want more information on this henieous attempt at deliberate segregation and censorship in cyberspace, visit the following links. I assure you they are very informative.


There is also a petition. I signed it as well as sent in a complaint.


Why is there a cry over this particular sector's segregation? Because Amazon has with their actions spurned even Young Adult and autobiographies that have nothing to do with gay or lesbian overtures but have left the "horrifyingly violent sport of dog fighting [to] remain ranked and appear on a first page search under “dog fighting”:" And let's not forget every father's favorite Father's day gift: “Playboy: Wet and Wild Complete Collection,” followed by “Playboy: The Complete Centerfolds,” which can also be found on the front page with no difficulty.- Credit Robin. I sure as HELL would not want my child reading either one. Funny. The last time I checked I do have that kind of parenting skill to know what I would want my child to read.

Thank you Amazon for insulting not only my mental capacity, but my parenting.

The Irony?

Not too surprisingly you can openly search for sex toys, sex games, and sexual aids. But not these books.
