More About the Author

Helen Harper is an English teacher currently living abroad in Malaysia. As a long time reader of urban fantasy, she finally bit the bullet and began to develop her own series of novels.

Helen has always been a book lover, devouring science fiction and fantasy tales when she was a child growing up in Scotland. "I always loved the escapism provided by those genres," states Helen. "No matter how bad life gets, you can always find a route out, even if only temporarily, in the pages of a good book."

The growth of urban fantasy fascinated her - the mix of reality and fantasy along with strong heroic female characters appealed from the very beginning, and inspired her to write her own.

I love a bit of fantasy and this one is brill! Loved Helen's last series and this one is just as good. Can't wait for the next one - good escapism from the real world :-)

Good characters, Good story, some humour. Kept me entertained although I do think the lot went a little off kilter.

I was so disappointed I could not finish this book...which is rare for me. I loved Helen's last series and simply brought this when I saw her name. I am a romantic but the writing and storyline was lacking.

A bizarre yet enjoyable book- Loved it! 21 Feb. 2014
By Preethi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is Helen Harper's book. I ordered this book without even reading this the gist of this book. And that is a gorgeous cover!

This is a retelling of the tale of Cupid and Psyche.

Cupid is the Greek God of Love- unfortunately he does not believe in love; Or at least, he does not believe in his job of forcing two people to fall in love by shoot them with "Love Arrows". Oh, and he does not like to be called Cupid- call him Coop. Coop is as cynical as they come.He never realized a small preposition error could get him into trouble- but it does just that- especially when he shoots the wrong person due to it. As a result he is punished by being made invisible. When he gets into a misunderstanding with Apollo, he uses his invisibility to get back at him.

Skye Sawyer is a shy, reclusive English Lit. graduate searching for a job. She can quote Shakespeare, Shelly and Keats at any time.. but she is not as comfortable with people- she is as shy as they come.

Skye starts working with Coop. But, they begin to fall for each other. Aphrodite, Coop's mother is not happy with this pair- especially when Skye fails her test, which results in her being banned from seeing Coop. She luckily gets a second chance- if she could succeed in completing four tasks.

"She wasn't a hero. She wasn't brave. She was just a typical, average, run-of-the mill woman. How on earth was she going to complete four godly tasks?"

The tasks are bizarre and crazy. The gods are moody with too-much attitude and too weird. I especially laughed during her meeting with the river god.

She wrinkled her nose. 'You're the river?' 'The river is the river' he answered.
What on earth was that supposed to mean?
'And the sky is the sky', she responded, 'Except when Skye is me.'

The first part of the book was just your typical Contemporary Romance tale. But, it began to get too bizarre and conversely, interesting after the first part. I'm not really a fan of Contemporary Romance- but that is what this felt like initially. But when the Mythology part came into it, I knew I was going to love it- and I did.

A word of warning though. This is a tall-tale indeed. This book is a casual, light read. Forget logic, forget cynicism- this is a book written for pure enjoyment and nothing else. Take it like that, and you will like this book. I definitely did.

Cute story 26 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked this twist on the story of Cupid. Short, but not too short, afternoon read. The writer put a modern twist on it, which I thought was interesting. The romance in the book is pretty minimal, so if you're looking for something with a lot of romance, keep looking. But, if you're looking on a cute and modern take on the Cupid story that is not terribly long, read this. Nothing unexpected in regards to the characters.

Amazing, fast-paced read. 29 Mar. 2014
By A. Brantley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I literally fell in love with this story from the first few pages. Helen Harper has created such an amazing tale. This book is incredibly fast-paced and impossible to put down. If you love retellings of stories of old, you're going to love Eros by Helen Harper.
Give it a miss 17 Feb. 2015
By jhl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read other books by Helen Harper that I liked fine, but this one's a real stinker. The plot idea is ok - she bases the story on Greek myths - but there are absolutely no characterizations, next to no dialogue, and no world building. The only outstanding element is that the main character likes poetry, so there are several quotations, which is nice, but that's nowhere near enough to carry a book. Skip it.
Awesome book 7 May 2014
