"Immortal Blush"
by Lanette Curington
Silver Heart Books, 2010
ISBN 9781452314433; Smashwords digital edition (EPUB), ~1,650 words

Review date: February, 2014

Originally offered as a free short story and now bundled as part of Lanette Curington's Immortal Lovers digital omnibus, "Immortal Blush" is a fun, short piece of light-hearted erotic fiction. Set in ancient Greece, it focuses on Pyrrhia, the goddess of embarrassment, who has found herself in a humiliating situation. Enter Hydor, a fisherman who comes across her and offers to help her out of it. Sparks fly, and before Hydor has a chance to free Pyrrhia from whatever trouble she's gotten herself into (the exact situation is never made clear to the reader), the goddess invites him to ravish her then and there, just as she is. The story then ends on a hopeful note for their future, and with a clever little "moral", rather like a myth or fable of old.

Some readers have complained about the lack of explicit description regarding Pyrrhia's misfortune, but I don't think it really matters. It leaves more room for imagination. Besides, the secrecy ties in with the moral at the end.

Although offered as part of the Immortal Lovers bundle, this story is still available as a standalone for free at Smashwords, and it serves as a good introduction to the setting and style of the the series. Although it's short enough to be read in just a couple minutes, it's a well crafted and fun literary diversion. It's one of my favorite Curington tales yet.



3 stars: It was good. Technical, conventional, and other errors are rare or nonexistent, and the work stands out among others of its kind. I would be likely to recommend the work to others. Equivalent to a 'B', or above average, grade. ( )
