Mini Me: Bleed For Me by Cynthia Eden

The Greek gods are alive and well.  But, unfortunately for the gods, the humans have all but forgotten their glorious existence…and this fact really pisses off the all-powerful, immortal beings.

Apollo, the Greek god of the sun, takes one look at the mysterious Terese Lafitte and knows that he wants her. Even in this modern century, a god takes what he wants. But Terese isn’t a mortal, not any longer. As a newly turned vampire, her attraction to Apollo is downright lethal because desire arouses not just her body, but also her bloodlust.

But Apollo likes a woman with bite, and now that he’s found Terese, he’s not about to let the little vampiress out of his sight or out of his bed.   When Terese’s psychotic vampire ex begins to stalk them, Apollo knows that he will have to use all of his strength to keep her safe.  Lucky for Terese, Apollo has more power than she could ever have imagined.

When you trifle with the sun god, you will get burned.

I love the internets. It teaches me wonderful things - and passes on the opinions of others so that I can make my own decisions :). Before now Cythnia Eden had been an author I only read in Shelly Laurenston anthologies. Not one I bought independently, but didn't mind as an extra. Bleed For Me, while not the best thing I've ever read, does have me pretty excited about her Loved by Gods series. 

Apollo's not bad, a bit obsessed with sex and convinced Terese was the one faster than I've seen in a while, but a good guy. Terese is dealing with being turned into a vampire against her will and suddenly discovering that gods are real, walking around, and owning popular bars. This short story contains plenty of action, sex, some emotion, and is a nice set up for future books, so I'd say that for $.99 it's not bad at all. Thanks Book Vixen for the heads up!
