Kryssie Fortune: Sex, Sacrifice, and Stupidity @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #paranormalromance

Giving it Up for the Gods 
Have you ever thought some gods are too stupid to live? Not all of them of course. Saturn's not bad, and his close-lipped friend, Jase, is a stunner.
Sorry, I should introduce myself. I'm Lindy Lou Majors, Country and Western singer and siren extraordinaire. You know us sirens are the sexiest females on the planet, so I won't bore you with that. We have a bit of a history with self-seeking gods of course.
First Juno cheated us out of our birthright, and then Neptune demanded an annual virgin sacrifice. I mean, some gods like yucky dead stuff and have animals sacrificed in their name. Artimis, the Goddess of the Hunt, always wanted game killed in her honor. Me, I'd hear the game birds sing, not have their innards spread out all over the place.
The Greeks offered up pigs to their Gods. Like to like I suppose, but they didn't think of it like that. They even poured water on the pigs head until it bowed, then they claimed it had nodded and agreed to the sacrifice. Those poor pigs hadn't a clue what they were in for.
Once someone split piggy's throat, his killer spread his entrails--especially his liver--out to see if the Gods accepted the sacrifice. It gets pretty hot in Greece, so I bet they made a quick decision. Just imagine the stench of rotting liver, beside people were usually hungry. They couldn't wait to dig in to the post sacrifice feast.
Each to their own I suppose, but us sirens have this problem with Neptune. A few centuries back, he got hit with a curse, and that wicked sorceress, Circe, saved him. Now he's the Greek-god version of the green man. He needs an annual sacrifice to renew his youth. He doesn't want meat. He wants virgin blood, and his sacrifice of choice is a siren.
Neptune's a kinky old sod He has his henchmen strip his victims then tether them--legs and arms wide open--across his altar. I mean a little light bondage can be good, but Neptune takes things too far.
Each year the sirens draw lots to see which unfortunate virgin he'll screw that summer. That's another reason why sirens spread themselves around. Anything's better than letting Neptune screw them. No way am I letting that stinky old man touch me. I mean, would you?
Now me, I'm the dumb virgin that dreamed of giving up to her one perfect man. I really wanted to find my soul mate. Then Neptune abandoned the ballot this year and named me for his sacrifice. I'm the clock now. I've got forty-eight hours to give it up, or Neptune will take me by force. Suddenly, I've got a great deal of sympathy for all those ancient Greek pigs and game birds.
So what with stupid Greeks killing innocent animals, and stupid me keeping my legs crossed too long, you'd think we'd cornered the all the stupid stuff. Only Neptune wins the really big stupid prize. When he named me, he's changed the ritual, and that changes Circes spell. Apparently, if I'm still a virgin on midsummer's day, whoever screws me first gets a hit of supernatural powers. Not that it matters, because I'm going to give it up before then.

About the Book

Not only angels fall.
Convicted of a crime he didn't commit, the warrior god Janus plummeted from the heights of Olympus to the depths of the Underworld. After centuries of pain and torment, he finally clawed his way free. He'll never forgive the gods who condemned him, or the sirens for their part in his downfall.
Each summer, to celebrate the Feast of Neptunealia, Neptune demands a virgin sacrifice. And his sacrifice of choice is a siren.
Sirens are strong, sassy, and sexy.
Lindy's siren heritage makes her fierce, lusty, and curious but she dreams of loving one man forever. She won't give her heart--or her virginity--to a short lived mortal she might accidentally break in bed. When Neptune demands her as his sacrifice, she's determined to give her virginity to anybody except him.
Janus, or Jase as he calls himself now, rescues Lindy from Neptune's mermen. He's the one man she's eager to bed. The clock's ticking. Lindy has forty-eight hours to seduce the siren-hating Jase and win his heart. That or Neptune will find her and take her against her will.
