Granddaughters of Poseidon: The Original Sinful Sirens!

If any of you here have read the first book in my Songs of the Sirens series, you’ve been introduced to Serena, granddaughter of the Greek God, Poseidon, the first goddess of seduction to be featured in my series.   She hails from a large dynasty of siren women endowed with fantastical powers and granted the gift of immortality.  The sirens in my books are benevolent even though each of them has their own distinct personality traits and some of them are less apt to follow the rules than others.  Add in their ability to actually change a situation to their advantage and it makes for interesting writing and hopefully a fascinating time for my readers.  By contrast each of them has their own cause they stand for.  Serena believes that by conning what she perceives as the egotistical rich and giving a percentage of those reaped rewards to the less fortunate that she is doing her bit to make the universe a more tranquil place to live. 
In my second book, Luna is hell bent on breaking all of the rules and believes she is doing the right thing by becoming a vigilante of the night set upon protecting women and children who are being abused—she believes their abusers should be punished harshly and takes on the position of judge, jury and executioner—something that riles the King of the Gods, Zeus, and creates a huge problem for her when she faces the prospect of being stripped of her powers and immortality.  The second book is finished, submitted but not yet contracted.
And now I must pick the next siren to be featured in either the third or fourth book—do you want to hear the story of Cordelia the siren who believes she can fix any problem and redeem men who have fallen hard from grace, or would you like to hear the story of the carefree Melody—former tough as nails warrior turned galaxy pop music sensation?
Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered into a contest to win a print copy of Songs of the Sirens: Seduction.

The lucky winner will be announced a week from today! Have a great weekend everyone!

Excerpt: Songs of the Sirens: Seduction

I said on my post yesterday that I would post an excerpt here from Songs of the Sirens: Seduction in a few days but I couldn't wait that long, so here it is! :)

Songs of the Sirens: Seduction by Piper Rowan
 Serena inhaled the sweet air, fragrant with the native flowers and the scent of the sea.  A deep longing stirred within her and her eyes as if being commanded by another force, settled on the softly lapping waves that rolled against the beach.  She started when she saw movement out in the dark depths.  For one split second, she thought she’d seen a human head bobbing out of the water.
The moonlight sparkling against the water put her soul at ease.  She could easily swim in that water, despite the risk involved, it sang to her.  Folding her arms tightly across her chest, she shivered, as deep melancholy washed over her.
She gradually became drowsy enough that she had to leave the balcony.  Zander had taken his leave without a word to her, and in a way, she didn’t care.  She walked to the door and tested the handle.  Not surprisingly, it was locked.  Shrugging her shoulders, she walked back over to the bed, and collapsed wearily upon it.  She shouldn’t feel this lethargic not after the night of ecstasy she’d had, but dreamland beckoned to her, and she went without a struggle.
“Serena,” her name was softly whispered by a man whose voice she didn’t recognize.  She smiled and rolled over in the bed.  That same man touched her on the arm, and his light touch made her shiver with delight.  She slowly opened her eyes.  In the darkened room, she barely made out his silhouette next to the bed.  He was larger than both Chiron and Zander, and from the moonlight spilling into the room from the open balcony she could see that he had blue-black hair.  His eyes captivated her; they were the color of the sea and sparkled like diamonds.  In a way they had the same effervescent life her eyes possessed.  “Come with me, my water princess,” he said softly, his melodiously deep voice lulling her into submission.  She sat up, and tossed the sheets off her body.  Still wearing the robe, she put her feet on the floor, and gripped the strong large hand he offered to her.  It felt cold and also a bit wet.  Still believing it was a dream, she followed him to the balcony.  He levitated them up into the air, and together they rode the wind out to sea.  As the sea spritzed up onto her face, she became fully alert.  Her eyes opened wide, and she struggled to pull away from the man of the sea.
He walked into the waves, and pulled her behind him.  “No, you don’t understand,” she said desperately, fear slicing through her heart, “my kind doesn’t live under the sea!  I’m not a mermaid!”  Her fierce protestations were cut off as he pulled her beneath the depths, and she lost consciousness.

Songs of the Sirens

I'm happy to announce that New Concepts Publishing has contracted Songs of the Sirens: Seduction, Book I in my erotic futuristic fantasy series.  The sirens in my series are a bit different from the sirens in mythology.  I had so much fun writing the first book and I am hard at work on the second in the series, tentatively titled Surrender.
Here is the blurb for Seduction and I will post an excerpt from it here in a few days. 

A siren, two kings, two princes, and a slave....


For Serena Rivers, being a siren always seemed like a curse—until she was finally ready to indulge her sexual cravings. But will the five men she lusts over be able to handle it when she finally unleashes her powers and becomes a goddess of seduction, or will she be unable to bring peace to the planet of Sindara and its warring countries?
