Romance and Mythology on Cyprus

If you’re in the mood for a little light reading over the Easter break, you might enjoy my fun Aphrodite and Adonis trilogy set on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The stories combine romance with a touch of mythological fantasy and all three novellas can be read in the one volume in e-book or paperback.

I’ve always loved Greek mythology and when we visited Cyprus several years ago, my imagination was captured by its history and legends. Since Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was born from the foam of the sea at Paphos, where we were based, of course I had to set a story there. That first short novella was originally bought by Tirgearr Publishing who then published two more novellas in the series. Although they’re still available individually in e-books, I’ve put the three novellas together for better value - the e-book is also in Kindle Unlimited.

Three novellas in one volume!

Enjoy the beautiful setting of Cyprus for this mythological, contemporary romance collection.

The mischievous goddess of love, Aphrodite, and her lover, Adonis, play a game with visitors to their Mediterranean island of Cyprus each spring and summer. Choosing a couple who might benefit from their special kind of assistance, they aim to bring prospective lovers closer together, overcoming inhibitions, or fear of commitment. Follow the stories of Jamie and Carla in The Aphrodite Touch; Katie and Mike in The Adonis Touch; Bryony and Richard in The Aphrodite Assignment.


"Guaranteed to put you in the mood for summer... combines elements of romance, fantasy and suspense in the sensuous setting of Cyprus." Reader

"Really lovely story - different, like a fairy tale for lovers. I'd recommend this highly." S. Jones

"A delightful mix of reality and myth against a beautiful Cyprian background. Ms. Gemmell describes the scenery so well one can almost feel the heat and taste the fruit as one relaxes on the beach watching the story play out." B Wilson

"Read as you relax at the end of a long day and want to unwind. You will finish with a smile on your face and dreaming of Cyprus in Spring!" G Slavinsky

Happy Easter!
