NOCKED ASUNDER - Book Two In Sam Cheever's Gods of Love Series

In her line of work Athena Googlios is accustomed to hot, sexy men. But Damian Leandar puts hot on a whole new level. His touch, even his gaze makes her body clench and warm with lust. Athena’s mind tells her she needs to treat him like any other client. But her body has its own agenda. And when Athena finds herself facing off with a pair of truly ugly mythical creatures, Damian may be the only one who can save her from a fate worse than death. Unfortunately, Damian has some pretty big secrets. And despite the feelings they can no longer ignore, something bigger than love may yet come between them. In the end, it might take losing everything they have, to make them realize how much they had to lose.

  1. Happy Release Day Sam!!!!

    You know what a big fan I am of your work and I love this series - so hot and so damn funny - your twisted humor is what makes you a favorite of mine! (That's a compliment, in case you were wondering!)

    And how fun your new fan club is!!!! Who wouldn't want their name in a book - I mean how cool is that!

    Good luck with the new release and with the new print release - seems we have a lot to celebrate!

    Now where are those noisemakers??

  2. Hey lots to celebrate! What a fun fun this sounds like, both of them actually.

    Do they need to be read in order? And I'm heading over to get my free book, should that one be read first or last or does it matter?

    Thanks for the fun party!

  3. Hi Sam,

    Love your picture - animal lover, aye?

    I read your tween book and want to know how it compares to this new series and will there be any new tween books, I loved them.

    Keep writing!

  4. Hello and Congrats!

    What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?

  5. So very fun, Sam! Congrats on book 2! Was it something that you already had in mind when you wrote book 1, or did the idea come to you later? Happy release day!

  6. Hi Sam, the Nocked series looks great. How did you first come up with the idea for this storyline?

  7. How many books do you plan for this series? And how are the books related? Do they need to be read in order?

    Good luck with them and hope to celebrate many more releases with you!

  8. Hi Sam,
    I just headed on over to your Fan page and sent over a email request to become a member!!! I'm super psyched to be part of the illustrious group!!!

  9. Hey Everybody!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing my special day with me. That's just so cool! Now let me try to answer all the questions here. Hopefully I won't miss anybody but if I do, you can send me a note at samcheever at samcheever dot com and yell at me! Snarf!

    The Nocked books do not need to be read in order, including the free read. They are all stand alone books.

    How did I come up with the Cupid book concept? I was looking for something new, something a little different. And the idea of having a bunch of real Cupids running a matching service sounded like fun. The rest of the concept built from there.

    Did I have the story line for book 2 in mind when I wrote book 1...I'd like to say I did...but I barely know what I'm having for dinner when I get up from lunch. #:0) I'm definitely a seat of the pants writer. I kind of take each moment, each thought, and each plot point as it comes...that goes for the number of books in the series too. I'll play that by ear, assessing whether readers are still interested as I offer each new book. One thing I absolutely HATE as a reader is a series that goes on and on and on and on and on and the Energizer Bunny. Know when to STOP people!!! Erm...sorry.

    As far as how the Nocked books compare to my 'Tween books, the Nocked books are action filled and fast moving just like the 'Tween books. The main difference is that these are a LOT steamier. But no worries, if you aren't all that into reading about S E X the story line has plenty to keep your interest. You can just skip over those steamy parts. #:0)

    How many 'Tween books? I have a feeling I'm not done with Astra. There will probably be more books from her in the future. But right now I'm concentrating on other projects, so I don't expect it will be this year. Maybe I'll start a new Astra story after the New year. Sounds like a good resolution, eh? Better than giving up chocolate...oh hell no!

    Book trailers. I LOVE them. I think the concept of bringing a story on a page to life in a short video is awesome. I highly recommend them as a marketing tool for writers. When done well, I believe they spur someone who's on the fence about a book into buying it.

    Thank you again for stopping by to visit. I look forward to sharing many more happy release days with you. Ta!


  10. Hi Sam,

    I'm a major bookaholic and my particular addiction is to erotic romances!!! I enjoy reading all the sub-genres of romance...What would you say was the pivotal moment in your life that pushed you to pursue writing??? What are some of your fave books and who are some of the authors that you religiously follow??? Do you get to enjoy being an author full-time or do you also maintain a full-time day job/career??? What direction do you see your writing going in the next couple of years???
    I know I've bombarded you with a zillion questions... :P I hope to hear from you in regards to some of them at least....

    Happy Reading!!!

  11. Hey Anna!

    I'll be happy to answer your questions. Here we go...

    I was writing stuff already in High School, probably even before that but I can't really remember. I remember my English teacher holding something I wrote up to the class and saying how great it was. That was probably when I decided to be a writer.

    My favorite writers are Evanovich, Robb, and Gabaldon. I've loved most of their books. I'm kind of in flux right now though, I'm trying to find some new favorites. There are just so many writers I want to try but have very little time to read these days. Every minute is spent writing or working.

    I do some freelance writing and project management for a few corporate clients, but I spend most of my time writing.

    Over the next few years I hope to get an agent and move to the next level as a writer. I'm writing a lot of romantic suspense and fantasy, because I love both. I don't see that changing. But I'm moving towards doing some paranormal stuff too, and I'm in the middle of a Young Adult fantasy. Busy busy!

    I hope I answered all your questions. If not, feel free to pester me again. I don't mind...really...#:0)

  12. Hi Sam,
    Thanks very much for taking the time to answer my questions...It's awesome that you get to dedicate your time to writing!!! I'm a huuuggee fan of romantic suspense books...I'm definitely going to have to check out more of your work..You're a new author to me so I"m very excited!!! It's always fun to find out great new talents!!!
    I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors!!!

    Happy Reading!!!
