Image of Ain't Myth-behaving: Two Novellas

A double dose of offbeat first-person hilarity ensues as comedy queen MacAlister gleefully twists ancient mythology. Neither the Viking nor the Irish
gods will ever be the same after her
heroines are done with them!

In "Stag Party," Dane Hearne, the Irish god Cernunnos, is in trouble when his wife, Fidencia, refuses to renew their annual vows for the upcoming Beltane ceremony - meaning that unless Dane can find a new bride in a week, he will cease being Cernunnos. Luckily, Megan St. Clair turns up at the castle; now all Dane must do is convince her to marry him for all eternity!

"Norse Truly" has Viking Alrik and his crew doomed to sail the coast until a Valkyrie breaks their curse. American Brynna is visiting her Swedish relatives when a crash throws her into the sea. Alrik insists Brynna can break the curse, but can she? (POCKET STAR, Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
