RELEASE DAY BLITZ+ GIVEAWAY: Doe Eyes (Good Gods #3) by Staci Hart

Hey guys! I’m so excited to share this news to you– Doe Eyes officially comes out today!

I am a huge fan of the Good Gods series and I’ve been really looking forward to this book. The Good Gods series is like a breath of fresh air in the New Adult category. It has steamy romance with a little fantasy twist in the form of the Greek deities in the mix. So without further ado, here’s the blurb and the very gorgeous cover of Doe Eyes.

doe eyes books keep me sane Aphrodite knows better than anyone how the heart works. Just don’t ask her to figure out her own.

She’s been away from Olympus for weeks, which wasn’t near long enough for her move on from everything that happened, to get past the betrayal and loss. She has no idea what she’s walking into when she gets back other than a new competition, this time against Artemis. The goddesses have never been friends, but now they have more in common than ever, though they’d rather face eat ambrosia straight than admit it.

Artemis can’t help but be smug. Her player, Josie, is a private investigator who’s lost more than she’s won. Every waking moment is consumed by her fire to catch the man who killed her partner, and when Jon comes back into town after leaving her without a word, it’s more than she can handle. She’ll never let him in. Not again.

But Jon only did what he thought was right, and he’ll do anything he can, give her everything he has to give to prove that he can be trusted with her heart again.

With Adonis gone and the threat of Ares around every corner, Aphrodite’s past presses on her, leaving her more alone than she’s ever been. She can’t help wondering if she’ll ever escape, and how much pain she’ll endure before the whole ordeal is behind her.

CHARACTER FEATURE+ GIVEAWAY: Deer in Headlights by Staci Hart

Hi guys! You might not know this but I love the Good Gods series. Today you’ll meet one of my favorite characters from Deer in Headlights (#1 Good Gods series). Here’s Lex, an artist and poet with a guarded heart.

dita-mh

apolloLex in under 100:

An artist and poet who works at a book shop. She’s never been able to fall in love, even though she’s had one boyfriend after another since she turned sixteen. Lex is afraid of love because she doesn’t want to get hurt, but when she meets Dean, she almost doesn’t have a choice. Her best friend, Kara, is her sounding board and a constant in her life, and someone who she couldn’t live without.

Profile:

Age: 26
Height: 5’4”
Hair: long, dark brown
Eyes: blue-green

Quotes:

“Seriously, the longest I think I’ve gone between guys is two weeks, and I cried the entire time that I would be alone forever. How is it possible that I’ve never been in love?”

***

She felt spellbound, like she’d been hypnotized. Like Mina and Dracula, as if he’d somehow infected her, and logic and reason no longer applied. Ultimately, she didn’t get it, and was torn because even though she knew she should stay away, she was equally fascinated, dreading and anticipating every chance she had to see him.lex-dream

***

They’d only spoken a few times, but she watched him during band practice like a stalker. Dean had all the makings of a man-sized Venus Flytrap. Everything about him called to her, and every other woman in a fifty-foot radius, but she knew that if she got close she would get eaten. Hopefully eaten in the sexy way, but she figured more likely it would be in the way that she would experience a slow and painful death via metaphorical stomach acid.

***

She’d dodged a bullet, she told herself, over and over, but it hurt like she had taken it in the heart.

dih-cover2-final About the book

18+

Aphrodite never loses, not when it comes to love.

Immortality has its perks and its downsides. Boredom, for one, is unavoidable, but instead of playing parcheesi, the gods devised a game that uses humans as pawns. Remember Shakespeare? That was Apollo. Bonnie and Clyde? Aphrodite versus Ares.

Aphrodite is on deck once again, and she’ll defend her domain of love as she works to get the humans together before the clock runs out, while her opponent tries to keep them apart.

Game one is against Apollo, and Aphrodite knows she has her work cut out for her when he chooses Dean, a brooding rock star man-whore who believes women can’t be trusted. Aphrodite decides on Lex, a perfect match for Dean, even though her heart is guarded, locked away tight. She’d never let anyone in. Not ever. Of course, she hasn’t met Dean.

But there’s always more at stake than just the game when you’ve lived for thousands of years. The Olympians are the original dysfunctional family, surviving eons of love and lust, betrayal and lies, as friends and enemies, through feuds and wars. From Ares, the douchebag, who’s forever trying to start a fight and get Aphrodite into bed, to Persephone, her best friend, who she can always count on for a healthy helping of bacon on a bad day, the gods will take you on a lighthearted trip as they mess with humans, laugh and fight, lose love and gain power.
