Book Description:
Syrinx pulled a fast one on Pan to escape his raging lust. The God of Chastity wasn't about to break her vows and succumb to his temptations. Transported to the twenty-first century, she runs a florist shop - fulfilling her fake, mortal life. Until the breathtaking Parker Thomas hires her to decorate his grand estate for a gala. Five hundred roses? Easy enough. Except Parker makes her feel things she can't ignore...

As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he's determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn't count on falling hard for his conquest - hard enough to make a life and stay.

But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn't exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?


My Review / Thoughts:
Syrinx is the goddess of chastity and she is being pursued by Pan the god of fertility.  She is determined to stay away from him, and her plan was to join the modern world to escape him.  Living without her magic, and being part of the human world.

Syrinx finds her joy in a owning a Florist shop in the modern world.  She has a dear friend and co-worker Kaye who she has hidden her identity from this whole time.  She is torn between telling her who she really is and staying in hiding so that Pan will be unable to find her.  In the mean time she meets wealthy Parker Thomas who wants her to decorate for his gala.

I like the fact that the gods are hiding in the modern world.  How many times have I wished I could just think something up and have it appear.  I like the relationship between Sylvia and Parker.  Syrinx doesn't realize what an influence she has on Pan, and neither did he.  I like how the relationship grows, and that Pan finds out there is more to a person than just getting them into bed.

The story seemed to move a little fast for me at times, but it was an enjoyable read.  I like how Syrinx and Pan found out more about themselves, and what they truly wanted out of life.  I didn't like how Syrinx was the goddess of chastity and that her sister told her that wasn't "who" she was.  She could choose different.  I love the love story, but I think the goddess should have been of something else.  I don't like the fact that she just gave it up for a night of pleasure.  I guess that is something all couples have to struggle with, so it was a little realistic, but my thought was that they were Gods she should have been able to resist.  Who knows.  Just a thought.

Having said that, I really did enjoy reading it.  It was a quick and fun read.  It's a sweet love story.
