The final release in the extremely popular Goddesses of  Olympus series features Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, Pleasure, and Beauty.

Many of the Greek Gods believed that Aphrodite’s incredible beauty would spark a war among the gods as they battled for her affections. As a result, Zeus married Aphrodite off to Hephaestus who wasn’t considered a threat because of his ugliness and deformity. Despite being married, Aphrodite had many lovers, both gods and men, including her brother Ares, the God of War, Anchises, the Trojan shepherd, and Adonis, the God of Beauty and Desire.
