Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s God of Wine is snarky paranormal romance at its finest. Her third in the Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. series focuses on the God of Wine and Intoxication, aka Acan, aka Belch. Yes, Belch. And what a fitting name it is for the God who is, well, always partying and intoxicated. However, a seismic shift in the universe has created a change with our Gods who will turn evil (if they are good) and good (if they are evil) unless they find their mate. For Acan, this could spell disaster for millions of people on earth. His powers already are too strong on New Year’s Eve, the holiday where everyone goes crazy with drink and partying. If he were to turn evil before then? Millions could end up dying.
So! Acan needs to figure his crap out, make himself presentable to women so that he’ll have a better chance of attracting his mate, and then make his match with said woman official, all before New Year’s Eve. With New Year’s Eve only a few weeks away, this doesn’t leave a lot of time.
Should be easy, right? Except our lovely Belch is crude, crass, overweight, and often forgetting to wear pants. Sure, he’s hired an assistant to make sure that he at least doesn’t go around streaking people in public, but when he’s always drunk and intoxicated, pants are easy to forego when Belch has no idea where said assistant even is.
[+Yeah, that could be a problem...]
