From Back Of The Book:

In his arms, her magic powers are on the rise…

Tessa, Etruscan Goddess of the Dawn, is losing her powers, and now there’s a mean Underworld god determined to run her down. She needs a hero and fast, because only sexual energy can giver her power. So she seeks out Caligo, whose sexual prowess is legendary….

And she’s the only one who can bring him into the light…

Caligo is a fabled Cimmerian warrior determined to stay away from spoiled goddesses who trample hearts after they’ve had their fun. But there’s something irresistibly hot and inviting about Tessa, and he knows he’s her only chance to escape the encroaching darkness…

My Review:

First off, the back of the book description is partially incorrect. Tessa doesn’t seek out Caligo because of his sexual prowess. She is sent to him to protect her from the Etruscan God of the Underworld, who wants to absorb her powers. Tessa doesn’t discover that her powers can be restored through sex until after her second encounter with Caligo.

This book was very hot and steamy, the epitome of Erotic Romance! Ms. Julian did an amazing job of creating a romantic story with erotic sex. Also it wasn’t just sex to have sex, like any good romance novel, the sex had a purpose for moving the story forward.

The author masterfully wove together the mythos of the Roman Gods and Goddesses, Etruscan Gods and Goddesses, and the Greek Cimmerians. She showed how the displaced Etruscan Goddesses handled being made obsolete by their Roman counterpart. There are also many other mythical creatures that the author had in this contemporary story.

This is the first book in Stephanie Julian’s Forgotten Goddesses Series. The next book, How To Worship A Goddess is due out in December 2011.

I give What A Goddess Wants a 4 Horseshoe rating.

What A Goddess Wants is available from Amazon in Print and Kindle editions. Also from Barnes And Noble in Print and Nook editions.
