Book Description:

All Fomorian Hells are about to break loose on earth, making human souls the daily special, if the Tuatha de Danaan can’t stop it.

Teagan, a Celtic demi-goddess hiding from her destiny in small-town Colorado, wants nothing to do with her mother’s forgotten realm or the drama of a battle of the gods. And Merric is forbidden fruit she’s too smart to taste.

Merric, leader of the Tuatha de Danaan warriors, has other plans. Teagan holds the key to salvation, for both him and their worlds, whether she wants to or not. He’ll do whatever it takes to convince her of her duty.

But can he find the key to her heart?

My Review:  Teagan is a demi-goddess hiding in small towns from her mother and the Tuatha Du Danaan warriors - especially the leader, Merric.  When Demons come looking for Tegan to find one of the keys that her mother gave her, she runs smack into Merric and his men and she is forced to take her daughter Katie and go into hiding with them.  Sparks fly between her and Merric - both angry ones and lusty ones.  Will Merric be able to win her heart? Will Teagan mend relationships with her mother?  Will the demons win?  Read Goddess on the run to find out.

Goddess on the Run was a very enjoyable read that I finished in a single sitting.  I loved Teagan's caring, helping heart and her sassy kick butt attitude.  Katie is a sweet girl that everyone falls in love with.  She is so in tune to her momma's feelings and she does so much for the people she cares for.  Merric is a hottie, who you can't help falling for right along side Teagan.  There is just the right amount of tension and sexual buildup between the two.    I also enjoyed the antics of Merric's warriors.  Living with all those men must be something like living in a frat house.

Goddess in the Run is a well written engrossing story.  I did not notice any spelling or grammar errors.  The plot was very well paced, and kept me turning pages.  I loved this book, and I gave it four stars.  I can't wait for book two in the series.  I've noticed that I'm really liking a lot of books published by Crescent Moon Press.
