{Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway} Pan's Conquest by Aubrie Dionne

Pan's Conquest
Pan's Conquest by Aubrie Dionne
Publication Date: February 24th 2014
Genre: Contemporary, Paranormal Romance
Syrinx pulled a fast one on Pan to escape his raging lust. The God of Chastity wasn't about to break her vows and succumb to his temptations. Transported to the twenty-first century, she runs a florist shop—fulfilling her fake, mortal life. Until the breathtaking Parker Thomas hires her to decorate his grand estate for a gala. Five hundred roses? Easy enough. Except Parker makes her feel things she can't ignore...

As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he's determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn't count on falling hard for his conquest—hard enough to make a life and stay.

But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn't exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?

Top 5 Goddesses
I’ve been asked to write a post about Goddesses in honor of my book Pan’s Conquest which just released this week! My book features the Goddess of Chastity, Syrinx. We are all our own goddess of something, and I’d love to hear in the comments section which goddess everyone following this blog is. I consider myself the Goddess of Impatience! Or perhaps, the Goddess of Procrastination!
In honor of Goddesses, I’d like to share my top five goddess’s with you and why I chose them:
#1. Gaia : The personification of Earth. Gaia is the great mother of all, creator and giver of birth to Earth and its universe. I like to think of her as mother nature. If she were here today, she’d definitely be an environmentalist. I’m dreaming up a book about her as I write this blog.
#2. Athena: The goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. So she’s basically good at everything. I especially love how this goddess is a strong and smart woman who led troops in battle. How cool is that? Out of all the goddesses, I think I’d chose to be Athena.
#3. Aura: The divine personification of the breeze. She is depicted as a billowing sail in an overhead arch. Not only does she have a cool name, but I’d like to think she can transport herself in an instant, reappear and disappear. The breeze can be warm, but it can also be icy cold and fickle. I can only imagine what her personality would be like! Probably tempestuous.
#4. Hebe: The goddess of youth. Even though her name is kind of funny, think about the power she has. In mythology, she grants a god’s wish to become young again in order to fight a formidable foe. So she’s the fountain of youth. She’ll probably never have wrinkles, and her metabolism will never slow down- like mine when I reached thirty. I used to be able to eat a whole bag of cookies, and now if I eat one, it goes right to my belly.
#5. Syrinx: The Goddess of Chastity. I’ve always liked Syrinx because of the flute solo I play by Debussy. You’d have to hear the solo in order to fully appreciate it. You can listen here on you tube:
It’s sad, longing, mysterious- the music made me wonder exactly what Syrinx was thinking. As the story goes, Syrinx turns herself into a reed to avoid Pan’s temptations. Pan cuts the reed and makes his flute. The story is a sad one, and has always stayed with me over all these years- enough that I decided to make my own ending and give them both a HEA (Happily Ever After.) Please check out my book, Pan’s Conquest, available for a limited time for only $.99!
Thanks for reading!
~About The Author~
Aubrie Dionne
Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.

Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

Now for the professional bio:

Aubrie Dionne is an author and flutist in New England. Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf. Her books are published by Entangled Publishing, Lyrical Press, and Gypsy Shadow Publishing. She recently signed her YA sci fi novel with Inkspell Publishing titled: Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed, which will release in October 2012. When she's not writing, Aubrie teaches flute and plays in orchestras. She's a big Star Trek TNG fan, as well as Star Wars and Serenity.
