It's now the twenty-second century, and things have changed a bit. Children are now living with their parents longer than ever, and arranged marriages are popular again. Also, mythological gods have taken an interest in what's happening on planet earth since humans have tended to muck things up.
Psyche "Kiki" Armstead is a beautiful and popular actress who never wanted the fame that she has attained. When she is pledged in marriage to settle her father's debts, she's more than willing to give up her acting, and to focus on her art, which is her true passion. Kiki's new home is sumptuous, and she's all set to meet her new husband, only to find that he's..........invisible.
Cupid, or "Q," as he invites Kiki to call him, is smitten with his beautiful new bride, but there are circumstances surrounding their marriage that he can't reveal. He also can't reveal himself to Kiki, so he makes love to her in the dark. They share a steamy passion, and seemingly are happily in love, until social media clamors for a picture of Q. When none is forthcoming, rumors start that he is a monster.
Kiki allows the rumors to overcome her trust, and she finds a way to see, and then take a picture of her husband, despite the complete darkness. When Q realizes what Kiki has done, he leaves her. Now alone, and missing her husband terribly, Kiki sets out on a quest to find him. Her journey will take her to meet up with Venus, Jupiter, and Persephone, as she tries to perform the necessary tasks to win back Q.
THE SECRET HUSBAND, while very short, is a sexy and entertaining read, which parallels the mythological story of Psyche and Cupid. I love the humor, the romance, and the fun of this unique and very enjoyable story.
