We all enjoy a good romance, but Damschroder’s genius idea of blending a love story with a not-so-typical variation within the paranormal genre — no vampires or werewolves here, just goddesses — makes it all the more special. Readers will especially love Sam and Riley’s connection and the magical, heartfelt sparks they share.

Three years have passed since Sam Remington walked away from everything. Loneliness has begun to settle in and take its toll, and just when he can’t bear it any longer, Riley Kordek strolls into his bar. She’s young, beautiful and has recently discovered she’s a goddess. Metal feeds her special abilities and is her source of power, but she refuses to join the Society for Goddess Education and Defense for help. Riley sought out Sam to be her protector and possibly shed some light on her situation, but unfortunately he is unwilling to help her escape her evil assailants — despite their sizzling attraction to each other. Once Riley discovers that both of them — as well as the remaining few hundred goddesses left worldwide — are in danger, one of them must step up to the plate before it’s too late.
