Even the gods cannot betray the will of the stars.
It’s been a hundred years since Aphrodite has warmed Ares’ bed, a hundred years he’s spent waiting for her. Now they’ll compete again in a game that matters little to him. His prize is far greater than a token or favor.
He wants her.

He will catch her.
And this time, he won’t let go.
