Hello, Readers! Today, I am going back in time a bit and sharing the 1st book in the exciting Warriors of Poseidon series by Alyssa Day! Enjoy and don't forget to add Atlantis Rising to your shelves!
First in a critically acclaimed series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Alyssa Day...
Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule—desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken…
When she calls…
Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She’s blessed with a mind link that only Atlanteans have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an “empath” may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below…
He will come.
Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon’s stolen Trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions—and desires—of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon’s power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?
"Alyssa Day creates an amazing and astonishing world in ATLANTIS RISING you'll want to visit again and again. ATLANTIS RISING is romantic, sexy and utterly compelling. I loved it!"
– New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan

-- USA Today bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks
This fascinating new series is an earth shattering, thrillingly explosive read that readers will want to revisit again and again. The characters are intriguing, unique and sexy as well as bold and bad to the bone which makes reading the story quite interesting since readers have an abundance of hotness to read about. Riley and Conlan have some seriously electrical chemistry going on and their attraction defies the gods and of course defies traditions which puts Conlan in the hot seat. The relationship not only has to overcome that obstacle but has some emotionally turbulent issues intervening right along with all the danger Conlan and Riley are facing.
Forbidden love, surprising truths, bitter betrayals, thrilling suspense and heart pounding excitement flow from the pages throughout this fast paced story which ensures that readers don’t want to put the book down.

Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. She is a multiple finalist in the prestigious RITA awards for excellence in romance fiction and has won several awards for her novels.
ATLANTIS RISING was the first of Alyssa's Warriors of Poseidon novels for Berkley Publishing, and was featured on the cover of the March, 2007, issue of Romantic Times BOOKClub magazine! Additionally, it rocked the bestseller lists, hitting the Waldenbooks, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Bookscan, and the prestigious USA Today bestseller lists! ATLANTIS AWAKENING came along several months together and did the same thing - only better!! And then her anthology SHIFTER, with authors Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, and Virginia Kantra, spent three weeks on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list!
Her publisher was thrilled, her family was thrilled (they could eat!), her dogs were thrilled (bacon!!). Now she's happily writing her fingers off, deep in the world of Atlantis, the Warriors of Poseidon, and a new exciting group of allies (??), the Fae.
Alyssa has long been an avid fan of all things Atlantis, supernatural, and in any way pertaining to lost civilizations. When she was six, she told her mother that she would discover Atlantis one day—and now she has!
In 2006, Alyssa (writing as Alesia) was awarded the Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award. The RITA is the highest award of excellence in the genre of romance fiction.
