Romancing a Cause Auction!

One of my writer friends from Romance Divas (who shall remain nameless for privacy reasons) is struggling. She and her husband have just been foreclosed upon and both have lost their jobs. She also happens to be an incredibly talented author, who wrote what is hands down one of my favorite books ever.

Anyway, fellow author Ciar Cullen has organized an auction to help us raise some money for this friend. There are some amazing collections of prizes on here, so please check them out and please considering bidding if something strikes your fancy.

Oh, and by the way, I donated to "The Rose Group." This auction goes live on April 6, so don't miss it! This prize consists of THREE critiques of the first 30 pages of your manuscript by three of the 2009 Golden Heart finalists: me, Jeannie Lin, and Cynthia Mealer. Plus, you'll also receive three ebooks to read while you're waiting ("One Wild Weekend" and "Click!" by T. Sue Ver Steeg and "Snowbound" by M.G. Braden). So check it out!

You can find all the details of the auction here:

“Oh Goddess ” by Gwen Hayes

Read An Excerpt Online

ISBN: 978-1-60504-367-8
Length: Short Story
Price: 2.50
Publication Date: January 27, 2009
Cover art by Tuesday Dube

Born to protect women’s hearts, her own beats longingly for a mortal. Oops…

Ondina, one thousand years a goddess, doesn’t think much of mortal men. Probably because her sole purpose in life is to protect the hearts of women who don’t want to fall in love. And now one of those blasted men—Jack—has shattered her sacred chalice, trapping her in a mortal body.

Jackson Nichols, on the partner track at his law firm, is the first to admit he always follows his head. Never his heart. Dina is infuriating, messy, condescending, sexy, beautiful and…well, just about everything that doesn’t fit into his meticulously planned life.

Neither expects to find many redeeming qualities in the other. But when push comes to love, which will Dina choose? Her newly human heart…or one thousand years of duty?

*All author and editor proceeds from the sale of Oh Goddess will be donated to the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis. You can find out more about the foundation at

Warning: Recent studies show that consuming beverages while reading this story can cause damage to computer monitors, clothing, and sometimes nearby walls. Reader agrees to hold both Samhain Publishing Ltd. and Gwen Hayes harmless in case of accidental spewing caused by laughter.
