The Love of Gods is a dramatic work of romantic paranormal fiction penned by author Tarrant Smith and is part of The Legends of Pale Series. In a world where gods come down to earth and interact with humans on a regular basis, our central hero is Lugos, who prefers the company of the common man to any of his godly kin. Lugos is a man of many names, but when he poses as Lugh Grant, he falls for bartender Keely. Lugos tries in vain to protect her from the repercussions of loving a god, but when the leader of the Pale, Rhiannon, asks him to aid her, it leads to a lot more pain and heartache than Lugos could anticipate.
There’s a complex cast of characters to get to know as the novel progresses, along with the system of the gods, the Pale, and how they relate to one another after centuries of relationships, betrayals and aiding one another. Author Tarrant Smith has built fantastic lore here which is well worth engaging with but does take time to separate from the main love story. Lugh and Keely make a great combination for their epic love story, and I particularly enjoyed Keely’s realistic dialogue and reactions to the situations she’s put in. Lugos is a chiseled and brooding hero which romance fans are sure to love, and mischievous other gods who get in his way are also delightful to read about. Overall, The Love of Gods is a romantic work sure to please fans of interpersonal drama and epic love stories.
