It’s OK no one remembers Etruscan Sun goddess Tessa. But when a demon threatens her life, she must turn to mythology’s darkest warrior for protection…

Caligo of the Cimmerians has never met a woman as warm, sunny and inviting as Tessa. Their sizzling mutual attraction quickly sweeps the two of them into a love story that’s worthy of the gods…


This was a fun story to read. You have Tessa who is running for her life and needs a bodyguard to keep her alive, and then there is Cal the Cimmerian warrior who has sworn off goddesses and refuses to have anything to do with them. But when a mutual friend sends Tessa to Cal’s house, Cal is sort of forced to keep her alive.

The attraction between Tessa and Cal is instant and the hotness continues constantly throughout the book. However, the storyline was a good one and I liked the spin on mythology that the author took. This was the first time that I had ever heard of Cimmerians and I was fascinated by them. I liked the contrast of Tessa who is goddess of the sun and who needs the sunlight for energy is paired with Cal, who is burned by the sunlight and lives in the dark mists of his homeland. The only thing I wished was different was the ending. It seemed really rushed, one minute it is all dark and depressing and the next thing you know it’s a happy ending.

“Why are you looking at me I’m chocolate cake and you’re PMSing?” – Cal
