An Immortal Treat with Poisedon and Mila & A Contest

 An Immortal Treat and Contest with Poseidon and Mila by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Poseidon, god of the sea, and his beloved Mila (from Poseidon’s Catch by Susan Hanniford Crowley) would love to share the new desert they’ve created to celebrate the festival of Dionysus (which happens to be at the same time as Halloween).

Fire Blossoms in Snow

Cherries (pitted)
Quart of Vanilla Ice Cream
Bag of Oreo Cookies
Chocolate syrup
Quart of Cherry Ice Cream


1 Crush the Oreo Cookies in a bowl
2.      In a small bowl put a scoop of Cherry Ice Cream
3.      Crisscross with chocolate syrup
4.      Spoon in two tablespoons of crushed Oreo Cookies
5.      Crisscross with chocolate syrup
6.      Add a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream
7.      Cut each cherry in a crisscross (cut cross ways but not all the way through) and spread the four petals like a flower
8.      Place two or three of your cherry flowers on the top

In these modern times, even the Greek Gods need to adjust.  When Poseidon wanted to find love, he wanted to make the best impression possible on a modern woman. 

BLURB of Poseidon’s Catch:

Sexy Poseidon aches for eternal love.

Mila would be content to taste love
once however fleeting.

When Poseidon meets Mila, a passion
ignites in him that he's never known
but she is burdened by a secret.

Can Poseidon save the woman he
loves before the sands of time run out?


“I want to hear what Aphrodite suggests.”

Her smile broadened. “For starters, the beard has to go. It makes you look old.” She tousled his hair. “That wavy black mane of yours could use a trim. Oh, those gorgeous cerulean eyes are perfect. Maybe some sunglasses to play a sexy game of peek and boo.”

The two gods followed the goddess of love, as they went down two corridors and into her throne room. A mirror on a marble table stood off to one side. The three gazed into it at once.

“Now to find the perfect place where Poseidon can fall in love.” Paris lit up then faded. Numerous romantic locations displayed their glory in Aphrodite’s mirror. Finally it was down to two: The French Rivera and Cancun.”

A frenzy of almost nude dancing bodies filled their view. “Cancun is having a bacchanal?” Poseidon stared wide-eyed at the wet barely clad beauties.

Apollo drooled. “This one. Posei, pick this one. I’ll go with you.”

The view kept changing. In a sea of faces, Poseidon saw one small delicate face. Then she was gone, lost in an ocean of sprawling, celebrating, feasting humanity.

Aphrodite giggled. “Cancun it is then.”
