ATLANTIS RISING

by Alyssa Day

The Warriors of Poseidon

Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlantaens, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule-desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken…

When she calls…
Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlantaens have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below…

He will come.
Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen Trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?

THE DREAM HUNTER

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

In the ethereal world of dreams, there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who prey on them...

Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he's in the dreams of others. For thousands of years, he's drifted through the human unconscious, searching for sensation. Now he's finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.

Dr. Megeara Kafieri watched her father ruin himself and his reputation as he searched to prove Atlantis was real. Her deathbed promise to him to salvage his reputation has now brought her to Greece where she intends to prove once and for all that the fabled island is right where her father said it was. But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea. His is a face she's seen many times.... in her dreams.

What she doesn't know is that Arik holds more than the ancient secrets that can help her find the mythical isle of Atlantis. He has made a pact with the god Hades: In exchange for two weeks as a mortal man, he must return to Olympus with a human soul. Megeara's soul.

With a secret society out to ruin her expedition, and mysterious accidents that keep threatening her life, Megeara refuses to quit. She knows she's getting closer to Atlantis and as she does, she stumbles onto the truth of what Arik really is.

For Arik his quest is no longer simple. No human can know of a Dream-Hunter's existence. His dream of being mortal has quickly turned into his own nightmare and the only way to save himself will be to sacrifice the very thing he wanted to be human for. The only question is, will he?

OF WATER AND DRAGONS
by Kelley Heckart

 

They were destined to meet, but were they destined to be together?

“Of Water and Dragons” takes place on the mystical island of Britannia from the dark enchanted lochs of Scotland to the grand bathhouses of Roman Britain.

The battle of Mons Graupius in AD 84 is one of the most profound battles in history when the Romans, though greatly outnumbered, defeat the Celtic tribes of ancient Scotland and furthered the expansion of the Roman Empire.

Here, in this untamed land the Romans call Caledonia, lives Nemu (Nay-Moo), a half- human, half-water faery woman. Soon after the battle ends, she finds a wounded Roman soldier named Ambiorix. Despite her distrust of humans, she takes him in and heals his wounds. Though they are from different worlds, they are mysteriously drawn to each other, but unforeseen forces keep them apart until their worlds collide in a fury of fire, blood and darkness.

“Of Water and Dragons” weaves together the Roman history and Celtic lore of ancient Britain to create an unforgettable story of love and sacrifice.

CORNERED TIGRESS

by Jade Lee

Tigress Erotic Romance Series: Book 5

The dragon, raging and hungry.

The tiger, sleek and cunning.

Man and woman, yin & yang, partners meant for Heaven.

The white man arrived before sundown, and the storm clouds thickening the sky made him appear an ugly baboon growling at the rain. But Little Pearl's missing master owed him money, and Little Pearl owed the Tans. They had saved her from abject poverty and disgrace, set her feet on the Taoist path. And so, barbarian or not, Captain Jonas Storm was welcome here. His eyes were a strange kaleidoscope of blue and green and brown, and in their alien depths, Little Pearl saw the impossible promise of paradise. Could it be true? Even with the shadows growing in the Empire, Heaven was within reach—and this barbarian could take her there.

WARRIOR LOVER

by Marianne LaCroix

Ares was a god sour on love. After a failed affaire with Aphrodite, he was determined to quit women altogether. What good were they other than for sexual release? Even for that, women were trouble, human or immortal. They were all the same.

Until...June 6, 1944

Belle was part of the French Resistance, fighting for freedom from the Nazis that have taken her country. She felt most comfortable with a rifle in hand, and earned the respect of the Allied Forces, always sure of her actions when plotting the next mission for her men. That is until Lieutenant Colonol A. Riese appeared after landing on the French shores in the long awaited invasion.

Ares wanted to take part in this war, and he wanted to win. When he encountered Belle, he couldn't resist the urge to taste her sweet flesh and make her his. Could he walk away once his mission is complete? Would he be able to let go the only woman that ignited his passion since his heartache from the past?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen…

It should've been a simple job. Fly to Earth, find the Seer and deliver a message to Brigit to let her know her friends Jaclyn and Rachel are alive and well.

Orion is discovering that nothing on Earth is simple and that sometimes the world falling apart is the best thing that can happen.

ALMOST A GODDESS

21st-Century
Kyra
Position Title -- Muse of Good Fortune
Evaluated by -- Mighty Zeus, President, CEO, Top God

Performance Assessment

Kyra's performance has, quite frankly, been a disappointment over these past one hundred years. Our Muse of Good Fortune, despite her exceptional charm and unearthly beauty, has been slacking off, getting by on her looks, wiles, and considerable sex appeal -- not to mention her privileged position as the daughter of Mighty Zeus Himself!

Performance Objectives

The best place on Earth for the Muse of Good Fortune to make a difference is . . . Las Vegas. Therefore Kyra is to spend one year at the famous Acropolis Casino, where she will inspire good fortune. During her sentence, she is forbidden from getting romantically involved with a mortal, and most especially not with Jake Lennox. This professional gambler-turned-investigator is too seductive and attractive for his own good. Besides, Jake has an agenda that may prove too dangerous for Kyra's soft heart. So, if she falls in love, all bets are off.

Ellora's Cave forecasts a sexy future with twelve months of starry eyed passion and erotic pleasure. Be sure to enjoy all this year has to offer with

A GREEK GOD AT THE LADIES' CLUB

by Jenna McKnight

What if you had sculpted the perfect replica of a gorgeous Greek god and, right before you're about to unveil it to a group of ladies, it comes to life in all its naked glory? What if your creation wanted to reward you by fulfilling your every desire? What would you do?

If you're Alexandra, you'd want to smash something.

The statue of Darius, playboy god, was supposed to bring in much-needed cash for the orphanage where Alex grew up. Now that it has miraculously turned to flesh, she just needs to give it a small imperfection so that it'll turn back into the marble statue she created.

Never mind that she fell in love with him -- it -- a little every day while she was sculpting the exquisite body. Never mind that he -- it -- is every bit as sexy and charming and powerful as she imagined.

And she sure as heck shouldn't be tempted by his heated offer to fulfill her every desire...

The goddess Eriu waited. The new Ard-Ri, high king of all Ireland, had been chosen, elected by his people to enter the Mound of Kings and to induce her to accept him as a wife would a husband. He would be difficult to resist if she were judging on strength and beauty alone; Parlan was as potent a mortal as any she had seen. But to be Ard-Ri required wisdom. Was it wise for Parlan to believe he might win the hand of a goddess? Such pride brought tragedy, the wrath of the most potent magics of Eire. No, Parlan could not succeed. And yet, did part of her long for his victory? Yes, when Eriu considered Parlan she trembled, for here was finally a man who might be worthy. If only he passed the tests to come.

TIME RIFT

by Elena Dorothy Bowman

 

What if what they say is true that a little more than 12,000 years ago a large continent, with all its sacred temples, palaces, centers of Law, ceremonial altars and citizens, vanished in a vortex of fire and water and sank beneath the depths of the Pacific taking 64,000,000 souls with it, and that the Hawaiian Islands stand as pathetic fingers to a once proud continent?

If so, then what if now, in this present time, these islands are unknowingly keeping watch over a silent grave, where it has been resting for centuries undisturbed, so deep within the shadows of the Pacific, waiting? -- until Trisha
