Horns of the Goddess
Set on the island most scholars think was the basis for Plato's stories of Atlantis...
It's hard to hang on to your virginity when pleasure is the ultimate prayer to your Goddess--and She delivers up your sexy soul mate on a platter.
Asta is the 19 year-old daughter and heir to the High Priestess of Akrotiri--a Bronze Age city on the gorgeous Greek island of Thera. They live with other priestesses in the House of the Ladies and worship their Mother Goddess Razija through sexual rituals designed to ensure the fertility of the island's crops. Ladies aren't meant to have long-term lovers, and definitely not husbands. Asta's best friend and cousin Julla broke the rules by falling in love with a rich merchant named Ikanos. As a punishment, the High Priestess decided that Asta should participate in the annual Rites with Ikanos as her partner. Needless to say: Julla is angry! Asta doesn't quite like it, but she's willing to jump through any hoops in order to secure her dream of being in charge of the Ladies someday.
Kyan shows up in Akrotiri trying to track down his father and grandfather. Invaders killed or captured all the women and children of his village in far away Thrake six years before. HIs mother was killed, but his sisters--well, they've got to be somewhere, and he's determined to find them and fulfill the promise he made to his mother's soul.
But when Asta and Kyan run into each other, they're soon too crazy about each other to remember their duties, and since he's a poor foreigner, Asta has to keep him a secret.
The only problem is: you can't keep much from the Gods, and sooner or later, there's a price to be paid.
