This request comes from Naughty K, who read a book and has described it marvelously. I thought I knew this one, but when I went to look it up, too many details were off for me to be right. But I'm certain you will know this one.
Firstly I would like to say that I just found your site and it's awesome and one of the best sites I've come across! THANK YOU so much. Anyway… HaBO?
This book is probably published in the early 2000s. I had just got into a huge romance binge after finding out I love reading romance. It's paranormal romance, the plot is pretty much based on greek mythology. The MC guy is from ancient Greece, I think he's a demi-God. I think he's a son of Aphrodite so he gets all the ladies and he's uber handsome.
He gets falsely accused for seducing and sleeping with a temple maiden (who are suppose to be virgins) and the maiden is from a temple of a God that really doesn't like the MC guy. He gets cursed into a book, if the book is opened/read by a woman he springs out and does her bidding (ie. pleasures her until time is up and he goes back into the book) and he can't never find satisfaction while giving pleasure to the ladies.
Come back to the present day, MC lady is at a bookstore, the store owner or her friend (I forget who) convinces her to buy this book, she really doesn't want to but buys it anyway. MC guy springs out, thinks that he's going to do the routine wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am but MC lady is like no thanks. She instead gives him clothes, takes him around the town and gives him a life/view of the world beyond the bedroom.
(my memory here is a bit fuzzy) The way to break the curse is that the woman has to be from a certain family, with a certain family last name (I think it was Scottish or Irish… really can't remember well) and they have to have sex but he's got to stay inside of her for like 12hrs or something (his penis gotta spend the night inside her vagina) and he's gotta release inside of her…
Anyway that's the most I can remember. In the modern day, Aphrodite is a relationship/love/couple therapist and Cupid is a bikey. I think it ends with MC guy in the hospital or something, Aphrodite pulls some strings so he's a citizen of the modern world, she makes him a PHD in Ancient Greece or something like that…
I'm almost certain I knew this – but every time I think I've remembered it, I'm wrong. GAH. Do you know this book? Help a bitch out!
