CLICK TO PURCHASE! When Lucy Moon gets curious about sex and lets a man lift her skirts, the virgin goddess, Artemis is not pleased with her. Lucy is her handmaiden and is supposed to always stay a virgin. In her anger, Artemis curses her and now she has to roam the earth. Also, it will be the last thing any man does when they make love to her. So Lucy, tries to stay celibate rather than condemn a man to death. When lust overcomes her, she chooses her candidates carefully. Then she meets Benedict Jones and although she has gained a lot of weight in the attempt to ward off men, Benedict is captivated by her laugh. Even though she tries to keep him at bay, she is highly attracted to the handsome man. But how can she give in to him and see him die?

I always love reading stories by Betty Hanawa. She always entertains me and gives me a story that keeps me captivated. This one is no different. It is a delightful story and I fell in love with the characters. I felt so sorry for poor Lucy. She liked sex, wanted sex and needed sex but had to hold back. Then there is Benedict, oh I liked Benedict so much. He really wants Lucy, but she’s keeping him at bay and he is being such a gentleman. I kept turning the pages furiously to see if there is just a glimmer of hope that these two star-struck lovers can have a future together. It looks pretty dark...but dear reader keep reading because Ms. Hanawa throws in some twists and turns and gives an ending that is surprising and satisfying. I just wished this story was a bit longer....with more character development, or the ending gone a little further. But, it’s worth the read.
