Celebrating A New Print Release In Sam Cheever's Gods Of Love Series

Today we're celebrating the print release of NOCKED ASUNDER, the second book in Sam Cheever's erotic fantasy series - The Gods of Love.

Sam writes fast paced fantasy and romantic fiction with feisty characters who deal with life's little challenges in unique and often hilarious ways. As a reader Sam is very impatient. She quickly loses interest if a story doesn't have a good pace and snappy dialogue. Sam's inability to focus in a backwash of human angst and subtleties works out well for her readers, since she writes the way she likes to read.

In her real life, Sam lives on a hobby farm in Indiana with 10 dogs, 4 horses, 2 barn cats, 2 daughters, and one husband. Not necessarily in that order.

Find out how you can get free goodies and many even your name in one of her books by joining her Fan Club!


NOCKED ASUNDER - This erotic fantasy is 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.

  4. LADIES!!!!

    Happy Saturday! I can smell Fall from where I'm sitting. Life is beautiful!! Thanks for stopping by my print release party. Nocked Asunder is one of my favorites of all my books. Here's what the series is about:

    My Gods of Love are a race of Earth-bound Cupids who run a matching service called Cupid’s Arrow. Cursed with lovelessness for millennia, my Gods of Love have suffered much in their interactions with humans and other gods. But despite the odds, my Cupids do manage to get their hands on the potential for long-lasting love, though the road is never easy. Fraught with obstacles such as ancient mythological monsters, killing Furies, and ancient curses, they find they need all their powers and senses to gain love and hold onto it. And sometimes the biggest obstacle lives in their hearts, where they really never believed they were worthy of love.
    The series is fun, fast paced, and filled with hot, sweet love!

    From Publisher's Weekly's, Beyond Her Book Blog:

    "Sam Cheever's Nocked series, with Cupids unlike any Renaissance artist ever portrayed, is a fun and entertaining read. Against a clash of titans and the threads of fate, these charming, funny, romantic, action-packed, and ohmygoodness erotic stories will tickle one's Valentine's Day fancy."


    "I absolutely LOVED Nocked Over! Ms. Cheever has a beautiful voice and a light touch with her characters. I simply cannot imagine a reader who would not love Nocked Over.... What are you waiting for? Go get a copy of Nocked Over! As for me, I'm chasing down another of Sam Cheever's books."

  5. Hi Sam,
    Congratulations on the new release.
    I headed over and read the excerpt. 'Discombobulating' now that is a word I don''t see much but I do like it. :) (The word was used in the excerpt)
    I have enjoyed stories that utilize the gods and goddesses of ancient mythology since I was in grade school. I really like to read stories about them now in adult situations.
    The excerpt was a pleasure to read.

  6. Good evening Sam!!!

    Congrats on your new release, wishing you lots of sales!!!


  7. Congrats on your new print release! Hope it does well for you.

  8. Thanks everybody for stopping by, and for all your good wishes. Here's a little taste of Nocked Asunder:

    “Yes ma’am, it requires that a Cupid’s Arrow representative spend at least ten hours with every prospective match, in a dating environment, just to make sure we completely understand your needs…so we can match you more perfectly,” I added, feeling hopeless at the thought.
    I wanted to be Damian Leandar’s perfect match. A part of me, a mean little part, relished the thought that I would get him to myself for ten hours…maybe more if I could swing it…before I had to hand him over to her.
    I felt a little better at this thought.
    “I’ll have one of our male representatives call you to set up your pre-screening.”
    The woman sighed audibly. “All right. If I must. But I want to move forward with this quickly…I’ve waited long enough…” Clearing her throat, she stopped in mid-sentence, as if realizing she’d said too much. “Anyway, I’ll be expecting that call today.”
    “Thank you for contacting Cupid’s Arrow.” I hung up, pleased that I’d sounded sort of sincere.
    Then my gaze slid back to my monitor, where Damian Leandar’s brooding, bad boy face called to me. My heart did that little blip thing again and I sighed. What was it about the man that called to me? Was it the thick tangle of dark gold hair, curling softly around a masculine face with a square jaw and strong nose? Was it the full, kissable mouth? Or was it the sad, blue eyes, which looked like they’d seen way too much of the world and needed someone to make it all better?
    Nah, I decided, it was the broad shoulders, smooth golden chest and muscular arms that called to me.
    Leandar was standing on a beach—I didn’t miss the obvious connection there—shirtless, wearing body-hugging jeans and nothing else. He held a light-colored wad of cloth in one hand, as if he’d just stripped off his shirt and he stared toward the camera, yet his gaze was unfocused, as if he didn’t know it was there.
    He looked as if his heart were heavy, his thoughts deep. He appeared to be a very unhappy man.
    I suddenly realized I wanted to fix that for him.
    I wanted to take away the pain in his beautiful eyes.
    No matter what it took.
    Even if it meant giving him to her.
    Sighing, I picked up the phone to call him.
    It would be all right, I told myself.
    After a couple hundred years as a Cupid, I was used to self-sacrifice when it came to love.
    I could do this.
    But as the phone started to ring on the other end of the line, my heart did that little blip thing again.
    Only this time it hurt.

  9. Happy release day, Sam! Congrats on the print release! I have to say that as much as I love e-books, I love my keepers in print :) Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
