Seth, ancient Egyptian God of Deserts, Storms, and Earthquakes was in a damn foul mood. Being banished to earth, by his father Ra, just because he had a teeny tiny problem with Ra's so-called mates was not something he appreciated. Fortunately, he found men on earth with the same anger issues he had, and soon had an outlet for his rage. There was nothing more satisfying than cracking someone over the head. Until he saw the light.
Dr. Luka Sterling, ER doctor, just wanted to get home and wash off the sweat and misery he'd collected working a twelve-hour shift. When he saw a man bleeding in the parking lot, stumbling towards his car, he had no choice but to help - and got kidnapped for his troubles. Being dragged to a fighting ring, and told to "fix someone up" when the guy clearly needed a hospital was just the start of his problems. Rescued by someone claiming mate status, just made the day worse. Especially when the guy didn't like wolf shifters.
Secrets and past hurts are huge barriers to an HEA. When Osiris, then Horus come calling with hate in their hearts, one has to wonder if Seth and Luka will ever get a break, especially when Ra was still as distant as ever. A touch of babysitting, a demon dropping in at just the right time... have the Fates finally forgiven Seth or are they laughing at him?
Reconciliation: Seth's Story can be read as standalone, although you'll understand more subtext if you've read "When Three Points Collide" which is Ra's story, first. Readers met Seth in that story and that book highlights Seth's actions that caused him to be banished in the first place.

Seth had stayed back, unwilling to let the doctor wolf catch his scent. But when the gate closed on the slender form and a gang of ten or more guys descended on him, he knew he had to act. The doc was still lit up, Fates sign that Seth couldn’t ignore. He had no intention of ever claiming anyone, especially a fucking wolf shifter, but even he wasn’t mean enough to let the guy be pulled to pieces.
Sauntering over to the gate, Seth didn’t bother opening it, he leaped up and climbed over it, ignoring Marlo’s yell. The doc was holding his own, he was hanging off the back of a guy a good foot taller than him, the chain between his wrist cuffs tight around the man’s neck. Seth decided he’d take out some of the other competition.
Seth’s was the natural god of disorder – he ruled over storms, wars, and his everchanging desert.
Fighting was as easy to him as breathing, and he swirled and whirled like the wind among the sand, punching, kicking, and at one point choking a man until he dropped to the ground. Feeling a bump against his back, Seth swirled around, his fist raised…
The light stopped him. Seth quickly froze the scene around them both as he lowered his arm.
“You.” Dark eyes glittered with wolf. The doc was panting hard and the look on his face changed as his eyes widened. “You? What are you?”
“Now’s not the time.” Seth shut down the rush of emotions he felt at being so close to the slender doctor.
“Oh, there’ll never be a time, buddy.” The shifter was furious. “You’re with a group of assholes that thinks it’s fine to kidnap a man who’d already done a fucking twelve-hour shift in ER – I haven’t eaten. My head aches, and you stood back and watched everything as they hit me and knocked me around. You’ve got powers. Use it for something decent for once. Shield me.”
The wolf shifter leaned closer and Seth had to fight the urge not to pull him into his arms. “I need to shift. There’re a lot of guns here.”
“I can shield you.” Seeing his wolf form will remind me of why holding him is such a bad idea. “Just make sure you keep your teeth to yourself. I can make it so you’re invisible for about ten minutes - I can protect you that way.”
“Too little, too late in my opinion, but I’ll take what I can get. And you don’t have to worry about my teeth going anywhere near you.”
