Tisiphone loves spending her days playing poker in the underworld, far away from mortals and all the trouble they cause - and all the terrible mistakes they make. Unfortunately for this goddess, her sister Alecto has vanished in Las Vegas - and the gods of Olympus believe only Tisi can find her and bring her back. To make matters worse, they force her to partner up with a mortal: recently deceased FBI agent Archer Mays. With all these challenges, how can a Fury keep her temper?
On their quest to track down the missing goddess, Tisi and Archer battle danger, demons, and even their simmering attraction to one another - until a sinister plot unfolds that could devastate humans and gods alike. Now, Tisiphone must set everything right within a few days, or find herself trapped in the mortal world she despises...forever.

Read in September, 2016
There's murder, suspense, humor, a few ghosts, torture, fantasy, and a bit of Greek mythology, all against a backdrop of Las Vegas. I really enjoyed this mix of elements knit together with skill, imagination, and a humor. The publisher's blurb is adequate, no spoilers here.
I got this on audio performed by Valerie Gilbert, and her interpretation was spectacular! I think she made this book even better!
"Mythology made fun"
Loved listening to this story, mythology with a contemporary twist filled with suspense, laugh out loud moments and a touch of sexy, ending in a HEA. Tisi is my fave kind of heroine, sassy and fearless and Archer is the perfect partner for her, sexy, protective and loyal. Ms. Gilbert brought the story to life and I loved listening to her telling it, her voice was perfect for it. Looking forward to the next story.
"A fun, almost naughty read!"
For me, I enjoy listening and Valerie Gilbert's voice is perfect!
The interaction between Tisi and Archer. Fun, FUN!
I like the mischief and strength of Tisi she brings to the story. Her voice was wonderful!
Bringing Mythology to life in a way you never imagined!
This book was wonderful at distracting me from my own personal stuff I have going on. It was fun and light-hearted. The dark humor kept me laughing! I have a new favorite author!
"Great Story EXCELLENT NARRATOR!!"
Sin City Goddess was such a fun read!! Great Job Barbra!! Valerie Gilbert IS SUCH AN AWESOME NARRATOR!!! She brings the characters to life!! This Book is Definitely worth a credit!!
"Pretty good story here!"
Yes, because it was pretty interesting. It was a quick listen-to and kept me entertained the majority of the time.
That was probably after Archer and Tisi solved the case and he's standing before the Graces. They're telling him that he'll now be known as a demi-god and it was easy to imagine the look on his face. lol
I've listened to several of Valerie's performances and still have more to go through. Valerie usually does a pretty great job with her narrations. The only issue I had with her in this story was that there were times throughout the story where Tisi's voice seemed to change, like it would sound one way a majority of the time but there were smaller times throughout where she sounded different.
I ended up listening to this over a period of about a week. I like listening to audiobooks while I'm outside exercising, hence the amount of time it took. If I had just been listening to this normally, like when I sit down to read a book, then it probably would have been finished in a single sitting.
This was a pretty good story. I didn't really have any issues, except two scenes that had me questioning something. So Tisi and Archer were able to have sex in the shower with no problems. Meaning her wings didn't get in the way or anything even when Archer turned her around quickly and slammed her against the shower wall. BUT when it came to her going in an elevator she couldn't because she didn't think there was enough room for her wings. Huh? A shower is usually smaller than an elevator.
