Two Goddess Connections coming soon!

These goddesses have been hanging around the house too long, drinking all the best wine, lounging on the sofas and not doing much of anything to earn their keep.

So I'm kicking them out the door soon. Putting them to work!

Awhile back, I'd unpublished Dancing with the Devil. After revising the story and creating a new cover, it's now Goddess, Inflamed. The heroine's the descendant of Persephone, wife of Hades, and this story is flaming hot. Much more so than the other two novels in this series. But with Hell as the setting, how could it not be?

Goddess, Spellbound's a brand new story. This heroine's descended from the Egyptian goddess of cats, Bastet. With the discovery of the queen pharaoh Hatshepsut's tomb a few years ago coinciding with the discovery of an ancient warrior who served her, and the false tomb door of one of her viziers, this story begged me to write it. So I did.

So, without further adieu, here are the goddesses...


When your life is hell, visiting the Underworld doesn’t seem much of a leap. On her twenty-first birthday, Lily MacInnis learns the hard way—by meeting relatives who not only live there, they own the place. And expect her to move there to marry Zeveriah, Archduke of Section Six and Hades’ up and coming CFO. Suddenly, Lily’s life doesn’t look so bad, but how can she make sure she doesn’t get trapped there in a marriage to a demon?
Bodie can’t let Lily fulfill that destiny. As Ruling Prince of the Sixth Heaven, he’s waited an eternity for the chance to bring down his nemesis, Zeveriah. Seems like he’s wanted Lily for an eternity too. But once he saves her, will she be his downfall?
Before her birthday, Lily didn’t know a damned thing. She’s about to learn all about The Damned, and find out everything she thought she knew was a lie… 


Ancient pyramid tomb doors. Mummified warriors. Artifacts appearing from nowhere.  And that’s just Sandy Whitaker’s day job as museum curator. When spells become curses, and the dead return for vengeance, her dream job turns into a living nightmare.
The warrior Iker’s triumphed over difficult pharaohs and returned from battles victorious, but dealing with Sandy Whitaker is his hardest task yet. A descendant of Egyptian goddess Bastet, she’s headstrong, na├»ve and completely alluring. Can he convince her to perform the ritual spells to save the Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut’s eternal soul? More importantly, can he help her realize she doesn’t need to be descended from a goddess to be one herself?
Sandy reluctantly embraces her heritage as Sanura, demi-goddess of cats. But even with her new powers, can she fulfill her destiny? If she can survive being kidnapped by a cobra shifter, she’ll do her best to perform the Pyramid Texts ritual spells so Hatshepsut can sail into the Afterlife at long last. But once the queen pharaoh is gone forever, will Iker leave her too?

Congratulations, Cate! That's a big step, editing, retitling, and giving them new covers.

Only for Goddess, Inflamed (formerly Dancing with the Devil). Goddess, Spellbound is a new story. Thanks.

You have been busy. What a move to unpublish and redo. I'm in the middle of doing myself.

I wanted the titles to be more consistent in format, plus I'd learned some interesting new facts about Persephone I wanted to incorporate in the one. The other, I'd worked on for the past two years, so it's been in the works awhile!

Awesome. they both look intriguing, like the Tannith Lee novels I enjoyed so many years ago.
