Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right, and has gone out looking for Mr. Tonight instead. A conversation overheard in the bathroom of Dionysus’s Bar about a jilted and lonely "Greek god" in need of a quick pick-me-up sounds like just what she’s looking for. But picking up the god of love for a one-night stand is easier said than done--especially when he's sworn off mortals forever.

Eros has been down and out since his ex-wife left him, and falling for another mortal woman is the last thing he needs. Which means a maddening desire for the woman across the street is not in the cards. Thus begins his quest to find a match made in heaven for Annie. It's the perfect plan ... if only Eros can bear to let the girl of his dreams go.

Can a woman looking for love, and a matchmaking god who wants her to find it—with someone else—have a shot at a happy ending, or will Eros's golden arrows miss their mark, for once?

I have been reading Jenna Bennett's work for some time under her pen-name, Jennie Bentley. Her cozy mysteries are some of my favorites. Her latest book for Entangled, Tall, Dark and Divine is a departure from what I have read from her before. I am excited to see her go in a different direction. From mystery to romance, might sound like a big leap, but I can't wait to see where she goes with this. Especially, with the theme of Greek gods. I have always loved mythology and this series sounds right up my alley. Paranormal romance is one of my favorite genre's and I think the Greek pantheon is such a good idea! Can't wait to read it.
