The Love Delusion
By Nicola Mostyn
A witty, heartfelt novel about cosmic love and eternal grudges from the bestselling author of The Gods of Love.
Two years ago Frida saved the world . . . so now why can't she even save herself?
Frida McKenzie just wants to live a nice, normal life with her boyfriend Dan. Trouble is, as the descendent of Eros, and the Delphic Oracle respectively, this happy couple are anything but normal. So when an anti-love cult begins to sweep the city, it's down to Frida and Dan to discover the deadly intentions of The Love Delusion's handsome and charismatic leader, R A Stone.
But at least they have each other, right?
Because as Frida gets deeper into this ancient grudge match, the cost of her destiny becomes clear, and the role of a hero doesn't come with a happily ever after...
A warm, funny love story with a difference, this is truly a super-heroine story for the modern age.
