It’s said love can change a person. Medusa wasn’t always a monster…
Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She’s no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves… and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.
Ariston goes to war with a full heart… and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.
Poseidon will use Greece’s war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.

About the Author:
Sasha Summers is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, and travel. It’s no surprise that her books visit times past, set in places rich with legends and myth. Her first play, ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’ (original title, right?), was written for her Girl Scout troupe.
She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she’s doing so.
Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
Sasha is an active member of RWA and several Texas Chapters. A self-proclaimed movie-addict, she is full of all sorts of useless movie tidbits and trivia.
Characters drive me most of the time. With mythology, it’s the myths themselves. I’ve found unique myths that demand revisiting or known ones that I want to explore a little more.
I think the lines are getting a little fuzzier, but I don’t have a problem with them. I know they’re important when it comes to marketing your book. I guess Medusa does mesh genres – it was a ‘hard sell’ because it wasn’t a traditional romance but it wasn’t mainstream fiction either.
The Help. I read it over the weekend. My mother was rather upset that I ‘still’ hadn’t read it. I’m glad I did. Lovely book.
Medusa is the first. She is also the first in a series that has 5 books – possibly more. I also have a contemporary romance series – a totally different style. All Hollywood, sexiness, flirty-fun – Hollywood Ever After releases July 14th.
For the Love of Hades, Book 2 in Loves of Olympus, comes out in January. It’s finished already, very sexy and happy. I’m now working on Book 3 of Loves of Olympus: Apollo’s story. Right now I’m thinking Apollo’s Longest Day. It’s beautiful and tragic like Medusa. My muse for Apollo is Chris Hemsworth, so that helps me keep writing.
