Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian/bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

As Fate Decrees

Genre Historical Fantasy
Author Denysé Bridger
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
The gods of ancient Greece must find a mortal champion to defend their fate.
“Go and seek the one I have told you about, she is frail and in need of help. Look not of upper blood, for I have seen her down in the dirt. She is held against her will. Find her and you shall find your savior.” — The Oracle of Delphi
In ancient Greece the young maiden, Amarantha, is captured and sold in the slave market of Athens.
“What fates await?” she wonders. “And what divine design will the Olympian gods have for me?”
As unexpectedly as she had found herself placed in chains, Amarantha finds herself purchased by a mysterious master who refuses to reveal his true identity.
But he is no ordinary man, nor she an ordinary slave.
Under her master’s tutelage, Amarantha is trained as a fighter and challenged to prove herself in battle after battle until her skills are perfected and she is granted the right to know his true identity.
He is Ares, god of war and the son of Zeus. And she is to become Champion to the gods of Olympus; bound forever to serve and vanquish all foes until the gods themselves grant her peace.
But even gods are not immune to the fickle twists of fate, and Amarantha is soon ripped from her quiet resting place and cast through time itself to do battle with a modern day reincarnation of an old foe – a madman bent on rewriting history to suit his own twisted desire.
She must act quickly to win this battle, for the fate of all Olympian gods hangs in a delicate balance between immortality and the realization that even the gods themselves may be returned to the dust from which they arose.

About the Author

I write hot, curl-your-toes erotic romance featuring strong heroes and feisty heroines. (And the other way around!) My book boyfriends tend to be gods among men—often literally. Gods, werewolves, vampires, you name it. But I can’t bring myself to overlook those hot alpha humans entirely. Sometimes I’ll toss a cowboy, bounty hunter, or steely-eyed businessman in the mix just to change things up. In short, if there’s a tale to be told about a dangerously sexy male with secrets and relentless determination (out of bed as well as in it), I’m all over it!
The gotta-write-fiction bug hit hard about fifteen years ago, and I haven’t come up for air since. I’ve written over twenty-five novels, most of them erotic romance, and dozens of short stories under three pen names. These have appeared online, in magazines, anthologies, and the occasional radio show. Then there’s this whole wonderful, wacky thing called family life, and I spend a good deal of my non-writing time hanging out with my husband (also an author) and youngest daughter, whom I homeschool. We like movies and TV—don’t get me started on how much is in my Netflix queue! And oh, yes, I haven’t given up my full time job…so by day I’m a (mostly) mild-mannered hospital secretary, by night a naughty romance author.

Interview with J. Rose Allister

What is your favorite genre to read?
And the winner is…romance! I mean epic, sweep you off your feet, be my next book boyfriend romance. Super hot is awesome, but it’s about the journey for me. My absolute time-and-again favorite is Pride and Prejudice, followed closely by Persuasion. So yes, a big Jane Austen fan. But let’s not forget the fantasy/paranormal aspects I love to write! I got hooked back in 2000, when Laurell K. Hamilton released A Kiss of Shadows, the first of her Merry Gentry series. That was my introduction to erotic romance involving fairies, intrigue, and oh-so-naughty doings in the boudoir.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have to answer this in two parts. For romance, Elizabeth Bennett rules supreme as a strong, break-the-mold heroine who is as stubborn and loveable as any character could be. (Although Merry Gentry is a fun runner-up as the wily, take-charge princess of the fairy court.)
That said, I have a non-romance favorite that always surprises people. She’s Mandy from Julie Andrews’ children’s novel of the same name. (Yes, the Sound of Music Julie Andrews!) She wrote a magical tale about a little orphan girl who climbs over the wall of her orphanage and finds an abandoned cottage that she transforms into her own special place. Mandy was everything I love in a character: willful, able to work for what she wants, and not afraid to break a rule or two in order to follow her heart. In many ways, Mandy shaped a good number of the characters I write, and the tale stuck with me so closely that I named one of my daughters after her.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
This year has largely been about the Sons of Herne, and I’ve got two more titles due out before Halloween. (Three, actually, as a special ninth story is planned involving the series namesake himself. Shh!) Feillor: God of Lammas just released this month, and I’m currently writing his twin brother’s book, Anduron: God of Mabon. In between the Sons of Herne stories, I’ve been working on another erotic fantasy romance, Bound to Her Master. This is a 3-book saga about a pregnant earth girl who winds up in an arrangement to pose as the sex slave of Lord Stepanyan, a god who is in the middle of trials of ascension to rule the high seat.
Stepping outside of the realms of hot gods, werewolf fans may be interested to hear I’m in planning stages for a Gen 2 spinoff to my bestselling Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series. The finale the seven-book series released in June, and it was so hard to say goodbye to those rugged cowboys-turned-werewolves that I just had to consider an extended stay.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Dominus, god of the sabbat, should never have had to spend half the year nurturing the latest light bearer himself. Now, months of visiting Lorayna in secret, present only as a whisper, has sparked a yearning inside of him that he cannot shake.
Lorayna is drawn to a presence she’s unable to resist. When she discovers her “holiday spirit” is in fact a mouthwateringly sexy god, she’s ready for whatever sabbat ritual he chooses. To her disappointment, his intentions are strictly hands-off.
When something goes wrong, however, Dominus is forced to break the rules and give into his urges before the Yule power consumes her. The ripples of their passion will alter many sabbat unions to come—and Dominus must defy his father, Herne, to follow his desires and prove to Lorayna that she was not merely another light bearer.

And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

She has also published a novella, Conduits (DarkFuse, 2014), and two novels, Those of My Kind (Omnium Gatherum, 2015) and Firebird (Limitless Publishing, 2015).

Interview with Jennifer Loring

Why did you write this book?
I knew when I finished Firebird that Alex’s story was far from over, so last summer—before I had begun submitting to publishers—I made a vague outline for two more books. The sexual assault allegations against Chicago Blackhawks’ star Patrick Kane, as well as the music video “Let Them Talk” by Russian pop singer Katyla Lel and starring her friend Alexander Ovechkin (Washington Capitals captain), inspired a great deal of What’s Left of Me. 
What is your favorite genre to read?
Horror, dark fantasy, paranormal romance, non-fiction.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Irrylath from Meredith Ann Pierce’s The Darkangel Trilogy; Constantine from Robin McKinley’s Sunshine; Zach from Poppy Z. Brite’s Drawing Blood; Gimli from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings; the vampires of J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood.
What are you working on at the moment, and what will see from you in coming months?
I’ve finished the first draft of the final Firebird book, which does not yet have a title and won’t be out until next year. I’ve also been working on some new short stories for anthologies. Several other short stories and at least two novellas are scheduled to be released this year.
Please tell us about your latest book.
