Ain't Myth-behaving

Two Novellas

"Stag Party"

Just when Dane Hearne, AKA Cernunnos, the Celtic god of fertility, thinks life can't get any worse, Fidencia - his goddess of more than a thousand years - elopes with a Brazilian salsa dancer and is happily pregnant, living la vida loca in Rio.

Although Dane doesn't miss the self-centered, demanding consort who spent most of her time finding new ways to annoy him, he needs a new consort or he'll be replaced by a new Cernunnos. Desperate to find a woman with whom he can spend the remainder of his days, Dane feels the task is hopeless until he meets travel writer Megan St. Clair.

The moment he sets eyes on Megan, Dane knows that she is worthy of wearing the title of goddess. But as he woos her, other women from his past re-enter his life, creating havoc with his social agenda - and his courtship.

"Norse Truly"

Viking legend tells the tale of a young Brynnhilda and Sigurd, who fell in love. When Sigurd lost his memory of the beautiful Brynnhilda and married Gudrun,

Brynnhilda killed Sigurd and swore revenge on his descendants until justice was done.

Thirteen hundred years later, Brynna Lund goes to her great-grandmother Hildig's 100th birthday in Sweden. While there, she crashes her car and wakes up in a Viking longboat, complete with leather-clad Vikings. Alrik Sigurdson, a fearless warrior known for his love of wenching, fighting, and drinking, has saved her from drowning. Cursed by a witch, Alrik has spent the last twelve hundred years sailing the "haunted coast," unable to achieve corporeal form.

The witch was the legendary Brynnhilda--who is also Brynna's great-grandmother; Alrik is a descendant of Sigurd; and to break the curse, Brynna must marry Alrik.

Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie MacAlister spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. When she was contracted to write a nonfiction book about software, her editor refused to allow her to include witty dialogue or love scenes, so Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, in which she could indulge in world building, tormenting her characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes. Her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York Times, USA TODAY, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell. Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest. You can visit her website at
