The Goddess of the Sun, Thesan (known as Tessa) is having a nightmare in which she is running from a demon. She wakes up realizing that she is being chased by Charun, Etruscan God of the Underworld, who wants her powers. He has already taken another goddess and she is next. Tessa needs help. An old friend sends her to a Cimmerian warrior to have him act as her bodyguard.

Cimmerian warrior Caligo doesn't feel cold, heat or pain and has a past that keeps him distanced from women, especially spoiled deities. But someone has broken into his cabin, and he finds Tessa asleep on his couch. While she is unconscious he picks her up and brings her to a bedroom where he ties her up. But something happens to Caligo while she is lying there - he feels heat when he touches her. When she moans at his touch, a world of warmth opens up for both, and things get a bit risqué from there.

With strong attraction between the two of them right from the get go, Caligo and Tessa begin a journey - a journey that starts with running away from Charun and a journey of love.

What a Goddess Wants is definitely an interesting read. There is a good plot, when they aren't rolling around in the hay together, but I found that there was almost too much sex. I am not a prude by any means, but wow.
