To rescue the world from an overwhelming evil, Poseidon’s warriors have risen from Atlantis. Chief among them is Ven, serving as the King’s Vengeance by birthright and by battle challenge. None can conquer him—except perhaps for one human female…. Ven’s mind is filled with duty. He must serve as Atlantean liaison to the humans in a war waged against the vampires. A sword is his weapon—not diplomacy. But on a mission to recover the Nereid’s heart—a ruby of immense power—it will take every ounce of strength he possesses to resist the sexual allure of the beautiful witch chosen to work with him. Erin’s heart is filled with vengeance. She lives only for the chance at revenge against those who murdered her family. Now she must partner with a legendary Atlantean warrior whose dark desire threatens to crash through the barriers built around her emotions—and her heart. Caught in the trap of shifting alliances, how long can Ven and Erin resist their awakening passion?

Letter from Alyssa Day
A fierce Atlantean warrior known as the King’s Vengeance. A powerful and beautiful witch who has the ability to call forbidden magic. What would happen if I threw the two of them together in a quest for healing . . . and revenge?
Atlantis Awakening continues the saga of the Warriors of Poseidon. Ven, younger brother of High Prince Conlan, is tasked with acting as liaison to the magical contingent of the Pacific northwest coast of North America. But he is unprepared for the depth of fierce emotion that Erin Connors stirs in his dark and silent heart. She, in her turn, has no time for a relationship—or for being so intimately connected to a warrior she sees only as a partner in her quest for justice.
Neither of them wanted to fall in love.
Neither of them had a chance to fight it.
The Warriors of Poseidon are centuries-old Atlantean warriors on a quest to save humanity from the dark forces threatening to overwhelm us. The discovery of human women with ancient Atlantean Gifts thought lost for more than ten thousand years is a complication none of them were prepared to encounter. The quest for the lost jewels of Poseidon’s Trident must be their mission. Their priority. Their ultimate goal.
But love has other ideas. The life of a warrior has forced Ven to bury his emotions beneath lethal fighting skills and casual humor. Erin is a beautiful witch with a special affinity for gemstones, and a brutal past, who has deliberately kept herself apart from any close personal relationships in order to focus on revenge. When the two of them meet, life gets a lot more complicated—and the heat they generate between them sizzles off the pages. But one thing is certain:
Dark forces should beware: Atlantis is awakening.
