Meet Frida: divorce lawyer, cynic and secret descendant of the immortal love god Eros. She's about to have a really bad day . . .
When a handsome but clearly delusional man named Dan bursts into Frida's office and insists that she is fated to save the world, she has him ejected faster than you can say 'prenup'.
But a creepy meeting, a demon or three and one attempted kidnapping later, Frida is beginning to face the inconvenient truth: Dan is in fact The Oracle, the gods of Greek mythology are real and Frida herself appears to be everyone's only hope.
The world is doomed.
Bridget Jones by way of Neil Gaiman, this uplifting and laugh-out-loud story will change the way you look at love - and humanity - for ever.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE GODS OF LOVE:
'Smart, witty, and refreshingly - wilfully - free spirited. Mostyn's deft touch with dialogue and incident powers the story along. I loved it.' Netgalley reviewer
'I really enjoyed this magical adventure, some really fun ideas about mankind and the search for love. The references to classic mythology were nicely done and the whole thing works well.' Waterstones Bookseller
'One of my top reads for 2018, and I will look forward to more from Nicola Mostyn . . . I have found a new favourite author to add to my all-time favourites list!' Netgalley reviewer
'More fantasy than romance. More gods than love. Grabs you in the first chapter and doesn't let go for the next three hundred pages.' Waterstones reviewer
'A super-heroine story for the modern age' Amazon reviewer
