Reporting a break-in, avoiding my overprotective ex-lover, dodging dangerous men out to kill me…not exactly a typical day for a comparative mythology professor. So how did I, Maggi Sanger, get mixed up in all this? It started with a family legend that connects me to a goddess and charges me with recovering the grail she hid away ages ago. Apparently some powerful people heard the story and are bent on destroying the grail at any cost—including my life. Now I have to find it before the enemy closes in….

This enjoyable romantic suspense makes believers out of readers that the mythos of a pantheon of Goddesses exists. The story line is action-packed and filled with suspense on several levels besides the obvious cat and mouse game with the grail destroyer. Readers will wonder whether Maggi will ask Lex to help and, if yes, will he ultimately betray her. Should she choose an alternate hunk Rhys, who seems to desire her as much as Lex has without the dark secrets? In any case fans will appreciate this superb mythological romance.......................... Harriet Klausner
A kick-butt heroine. This is the signature character for Harlequin¿s new Bombshell line. Picture Lara Croft or Buffy. But Yvonne Jock¿s first Bombshell, AKA- GODDESS has a heroine every woman can relate to. Oh, she still kicks some serious butt, but Magdalene Sanger¿Maggi to her family and friends¿is reluctant at first to take on her warrior role. Dr. Sanger¿Maggi--is a professor of Comparative Mythology and a student of Tai Chi living a normal life. But when her apartment is broken into and her aunt attacked, Maggi is thrust into a world of danger and intrigue. Maggi is descended from a line of ancient goddesses. Thousands of years ago, as each queen found herself in danger, she hid her holy chalice. Clues to the Goddess grails¿ hiding places have been passed down from mother to daughter in the form of deceptively innocuous nursery rhymes. Now, with the aid of a handsome Welshman, Rhys, Maggi must find and protect her ancestor¿s Goddess grails. On top of everything else, her lover, Lex, seems to be the head of a secret society of dangerous men bent on destroying the grails. Lex is a mysterious, dangerous, and sexy man. But is he Maggi¿s lover or her enemy? Maggi and Lex¿s ambiguous relationship causes knee-weakening sexual tension and edge of your seat suspense. The plot is shadowed with uncertainty as Maggi finds herself attracted to Rhys, the love scenes sizzle, and the fight scene at the end is tense, exciting, and horrifyingly real. Maggi is a kick-butt heroine you will love to cheer for.
