Her song is a gift bestowed by the gods; so why does it feel like a curse?

Seventeen-year-old Wren thinks she has just swum away from the greatest threat in the sea. That’s until she finds herself being hauled upon a warlord’s boat. With her life at the mercy of a young, temperamental King, Wren must decide who is her ultimate enemy.

Can Fate be altered? What do gods have planned?

Syrens are bound to tell the truth, but that doesn’t mean their lives cannot be riddled with lies.

EXCERPT

“Kellan,” I croak but he does not hear me. I barely hear myself over his raspy chanting.
He calls on the gods using their archaic, mostly forgotten prayers. The consecrated chant is mainly gibberish to my ringing ears, but a single word resonates within my core.
Meraki. The ancient concept of pouring a piece of your soul into something you cherish. He smears an old symbol onto my arm, over and over until I feel the movement even without him touching me.
I feel clammy against his heat, yet I do not move away. Maybe it’s because I am too weak. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to. I guess there are worse places to die. The babble of the town fades away until I hear nothing but Kellan.
Meraki.
Meraki.
Meraki.

My body shudders once, then I go limp in his hold.

Title: The House With the Golden Door
Series: Wolf Den Trilogy, #2
Author: Elodie Harper
Release Date: September 6, 2022
Genre(s): Adult — Mythology

SYNOPSIS: 

The life of a courtesan in Pompeii is glamorous yet perilous . . .

Amara has escaped her life as a slave in the Wolf Den, the city’s most notorious brothel, but now her survival depends on the affections of her patron: a man she might not know as well as she once thought. At night, in the home he bought for her, the house with the golden door, Amara’s dreams are haunted by her past. She longs for her sisterhood of friends—the women at the brothel she was forced to leave behind—and worse, finds herself pursued by the cruel and vindictive man who once owned her. To be truly free, she will need to be as ruthless as he is. Amara knows her existence in Pompeii is subject to Venus, the goddess of love. Yet finding love may prove to be the most dangerous act of all.

Invitation to Hell
(Goddess of Death #1)
by Amber Bunch
Publication Date: September 22, 2022 (First Edition)
Genre: Dark Romance/ Dark Fantasy/ Mythology

What if, all you’ve ever known was ripped away from you…

You were thrown into a world full of the same creatures that have haunted your nightmares for years. Magic, and the Gods are no longer a myth, but a part of your destiny.

Now, you’re about to lose everything and everyone you love to an evil King known as the Devourer of Souls.

Then, there’s Hades son…

The ruthless Prince that drives you crazy and thinks you are a waste of his time.

You can’t stand him, but he has been instructed to protect you, so now you have to deal with his arrogance on top of everything else.

The two of you must travel across the Realms to find a way to stop King Lucius before all is lost and you still don’t even know how to use your newly awakened power.

Well, this should be fun.

Excerpt:

My life has been full of lies and betrayal. 

I just found out that Magic, Demons, Gods… It’s all real.

Now, an Evil King wants to harness my powers for his own. And if he does, he’ll bring ruin to all six realms.

The best part of it… I’m destined to save us all.

But how can I fight an evil that I’ve never even seen? Because no matter what I do, he always seems to be one step ahead of me.

To add to the shock of a lifetime, Prince of the Underworld, Asmodeus has been sent to train and protect me.

So far, the only thing he’s good at is driving me insane.

I’m not sure if I want to throat punch him or kiss him.

Maybe both….

But he’s my only chance at learning how to control my newly awakened power, save my family, and stop Lucius’s plans before it’s too late.

I just hope the prophecy is right. And being the “Destined one” is enough.

Because if it’s wrong… I’ve doomed us all
