"a delightful, scorching hot feast for the senses"

Move over Holly and Knight, there's a new gal in town!! Gift of the Goddess is a wonderful, erotic adventure with a plot full of twists and turns, and heroes that are to die for!

Anje is a female warrior. The best warrior scout her people, the Children of the Mother, have to offer—their greatest hope against the evil and marauding Hssrda. While mapping the enemy's location, she is captured by two of the most feral and sexy men she has ever laid eyes on. They are followers of Lufra, a goddess whose law states no man may take pleasure in a woman's body without her climaxing first. When their intentions become obvious, Anje knows she cannot fight them with force, but she's confident she can control her passion when their sensual seduction starts. Little did she know, seducing her is something they've been trained to do.

Brin, a shaman of Lufra, has been dreaming of this woman who bears the resemblance of his goddess. Certain she is the one who can save his people, he and his companion Trey, ready her for the ritual to save his people. Though deliciously defiant, the two companions soon have the lovely little woman coming to pieces in their hands. What they never expected was becoming wrapped around her little finger in the process.

Ms. Rossetti is an auto buy author for me --any book, anthology or short story with her name on it and I snatch it up, knowing I'm in for a wonderfully sexy, fantastically brilliant, read highlighted by crisp and vibrant prose. Gift of the Goddess is no exception. With characters that stay with you long after you've finished reading, this is a delightful, scorching hot feast for the senses you will not want to end, and won't be able to put down.

The Law of the love goddess Lufra states that no man may take his pleasure inside any part of a woman's body, unless she has climaxed first. Each time, every time. But when warrior-scout Anje is taken captive by Brin, Lufra's shaman, she discovers that not even divine law can protect her from the erotic wiles of two determined men.

Huge, dark and enigmatic, Brin wears a tattoo of the holy dragon on his magnificent body. Years of erotic training have given him skills and stamina Anje cannot match. But it's the strength of his will that threatens to conquer her very soul, while his beautiful young friend Trey has a bravado and a vulnerability that make her mouth water.

Anje fears Brin's arrogant prediction may be true—"You'll surrender, scout, and you'll glory in it. You'll abandon yourself and adore it. Because you trust—trust absolutely." Screaming and cursing her ecstasy, she learns that dark raptures are addictive. But neither man is what he seems and all three are pawns in a suicidal scheme to placate an angry goddess. Saving her lovers will take everything Anje's got—as a woman and a warrior.
