Review by Sunflower

Can the goddess of sexuality teach a man that life can be full of love or will his past hurts be too much to overcome?

Aeval, the Irish goddess of sexuality, has been sent to Earth by the Dagda, the Lord of All Things, to find a mortal to love her. If she does not find true love within twenty-one days, she will perish. She has great gifts: the gift of invisibility, the gift of telepathy, and the gift to show husbands how to sexually satisfy their wives completely, but even with her great powers, she struggles to survive among the Earthbound. As if navigating the world of mortals isn’t difficult enough, she has to face her father’s arch enemy.

Andrew, a talented musician and the man of her dreams, has impenetrable defenses. He is enthralled with Aeval, but unwilling to give her his love because he has been deeply hurt and he has no intention of letting that happen again.

Aeval and Andrew find themselves in a battle of hearts and wills that only true love will conquer.

Will Aeval be able to break down Andrew’s defenses and will she be able to save him from Baylor’s twisted scheme? Or will the Banshee cry in mourning for Andrew?

I let my imagination wander when I chose this story. I was curious to know what lay behind the title The Lady of Sexuality. Perhaps it was the of a sulphurous dominatrix or of a sexologist. To discover it was the first volume of a series on the Daughters of the Dagda. Aeval is the Irish goddess of sexuality who has become a mortal woman and must find love in order to survive.

The adventures of Aeval take an interesting turn when the goddess lives as an attractive sexotherapist and discovers for herself the emotions women live through as they fall in love : loss of control, despair, doubt, perserverance.

I enjoyed the challenges faced by this woman. Her struggle and her quest to love and live. It was a quest of a woman in search of herself. A woman who lost her power and control over mortals. A woman who must learn humility and who must show a selfless love. In short, a woman who must learn to really love.

Love seems to be the most difficult step. It’s a step that means surrendering. Aeval discovers and accepts losing control over humans and the man that her heart desires : Andrew. The story of how she comes to this step is a beautiful challenge. It’s a wonderful story of redemption and abnegation that any woman would dream about.
