About the erotes

DEMON OF ENVY is the fifth story in my series of stand-alone novellas with the erotes as a common theme. Yes, they can be read in any order, so if you want to try this one first, please do!

Who are the erotes?

In Greek mythology there are many versions from which to pick and choose, and researching the erotes was no exception. The most popular belief seems to be that the erotes were a group of winged gods who were the children of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and sexuality who was born from the foam of the sea. The Greek god Eros was either their father or one of their brothers.

Another belief, and the one that resonates best with me, is that the erotes were in fact different aspects of the primal god, Eros. Erotes is the plural of eros (desire), and I am fascinated by the idea that love is so complex it must be personified across several beings.

While the erotic author in me applauds the idea of the greatness of Eros, I also love the idea that his power, and therefore that of the erotes, stems primarily from a woman—the Olympian goddess Aphrodite (sometimes called Venus in Roman mythology).

Thus the concept of the GODS OF LOVE series was born—stand-alone novellas that can be read in any order, but that also share a common theme.

While the first four novellas in the series focus on the erotes (Pothos, Himeros and Anteros) and their mother, the goddess Aphrodite, Book 5 introduces the black sheep of the family. Phthonos (Thon) is the god of envy and jealousy, brother to the erotes and wayward son of Aphrodite. After a lengthy banishment from the world of mortals he has been given one last chance to make up for the mistakes of his past. But is Thon more demon than god? And if the demon Envy wins out, how will this lonely god ever find room in his heart for love?
