When Cupid Christian Kairos sees the lush, beautiful goddess Arion on Olympus, he’s drawn to her like a bee to pollen. Her reaction to him suggests she feels the same. So when they find themselves alone together, it doesn’t take long for them to pollinate. Christian decides he has to have her for his own. Unfortunately she’s been promised to another.

My rating:

It's quite a feat creating a slightly convoluted short story, and Sam Cheever did it. This required mild bran activity to get through, mostly because the "editing was a bit choppy" (if I may use a movie term). It didn't flow as it was supposed to flow, would maybe be a more suitable explanation. The story (and characters) jumped all over the place, while the two leads also jumped each other.

But since that's the main reason these NN quickies are created, jumping each other wasn't a problem. The jumping all over the place, on the other hand, was.

Also...What was it with Greek gods using archaic English?
