Welcome to Ancient Rome, where the men mingle in the lives of gods and gods meddle with the lives of men! When the goddess of love--powerful, vain Venus--thinks that a beautiful mortal named Psyche is stealing her thunder, she curses the girl, marrying her off to a monster. But she is foiled by her own son Cupid, a mama's boy who falls in love with Psyche--and who, for the first time in his life defies his mother's wishes and whisks a blindfolded Psyche away, pretending to be the monster. As Cupid hides his true identity, Psyche finds herself falling for this mysterious, unseen beas--never realizing he's actually the most beautiful god ever. But what will Venus do when she finds out? Meanwhile, spoiled teenager Prosperpine wants to escape the Mother of all Smothering Moms: Ceres, also known as Mother Nature. She sees her opportunity arise when a new face arrives on Mount Olympus: the baddest of bad boys, Pluto--god of the underworld. Lovelorn and sensitive, Pluto's surrounded by souls--but can't find a soulmate. Prosperpine jumps at the chance to escape, but without thinking through her actions. Can love survive going to hell and back? Add to this a vibrant cast of characters a sculptor who falls for his statue, a self-absorbed suitor who can't take his eyes off himself, a nymph who always has to have the last word, a wisecracking half-goat sidekick, a trio of Muses who'd put the Supremes to shame, a rapping Cyclops, and even Jupiter himself--a golden boy "bro" who'd rather be surfing than ruling over Rome--and you get a story about how if you take the time to look beneath the surface, you just might find love. This is one you don't want to "myth"!
