About the Book
Title: PAN’S CONQUEST
Author: Aubrie Dionne
EBook: 119 pages
Release Date: February 24, 2014
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?

Welcome to my stop on the Pan’s Conquest blog tour. I have an interview with the author, so I hope you enjoy it.
Tell us a something about yourself that is not in your author bio.
I’m a big Trekkie. The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager…all of them. Last year I went to the Star Trek convention and I got to meet Brent Spiner, the actor who played Data. Come now, you must know who Data is, right??? I was a crazy fan and I think I scared him away! Next year I’m going in costume.
Do you have any authors that have influenced your writing?
I love Tad Williams’ Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn fantasy trilogy. I’ve read it several times. I also love Patricia McKillip- Winter Rose is my favorite of hers, and all of Sheri S. Tepper’s books.
How long does it take you to write a book?
My first book took two and a half years to write! Phew! I was so glad to finish it, I thought I’d never write another one. Now it takes me 2-3 months. I write 3-5 books per year depending on my flute concert schedule. Each one is one of my very special book babies. (No, I’m not crazy) 🙂
Pan’s Conquest is based on mythology. What is it that you enjoy about mythology?
I was inspired by a song for solo flute written by Debussy called Syrinx. You can listen to it here played by the principal flutist of the Berlin Philharmonic:
Isn’t he amazing? Maybe I can meet him someday and scare him away like I did to Data….or on second thought…
Anyway, I never liked the way the Pan and Syrix story ended. Syrinx turns herself into a reed to avoid Pan, and Pan cuts the reed and makes his flute. Hardly a happy ending! So, I decided to take the story a step further and end it myself in contemporary times.
How did you come up with your story line for this novel?
I thought about what Syrinx would be like in modern times. She’d probably be into nature, so I made her the florist in a greenhouse. I also thought she’d own her own business because she is such a strong woman.
Are you working on anything new you can let us in on?
I just finished the sequel to this book titles Ares’ Temptation. It’s about the god of war falling for a mortal woman who has accidentally stolen his powers. I had a great time writing it.
Thanks for allowing me to interview you!
