Viva Las Vegas!

Buy Betting on a God HERE

By Courtney Sheets
Here Frank Sinatra goes all the way, it’s always a thrill to have Dean Martin under you, and Elvis never stops being a hunk of burning love. All of this happens almost every day in my hometown, Las Vegas, one of the sexist places in the world. Heck, our nickname is even Sin City. No wonder Vegas is so damn sexy!No, I am not talking about sex…for now at least. All of those happen to be street names in Vegas as well as sexy dead crooners.

I really dig Old Vegas. You know what I mean, Bugsy Siegel and the Rat Pack. Cool cats in fedoras and sultry vixens in silky gowns. I love it all. So it makes sense that my new 1Night Stand story, Betting on a God, would take place in a casino with an Old Vegas feel. Set at the mythical Mount Olympus Casino and Resort, modeled after Caesar’s Palace, we meet just a few of the Greek Gods who run the joint. Namely Dion Eliades the resident Food and Beverage Manager, or as he is commonly known, Dionysus.The studly god is in trouble with Madame Eve sets him up with sassy mortal Sadie. Who doesn’t want a Greek god to cater to their passions all night long?

There is so much more to Las Vegas then meets the eye and the tourists never really get to see the place I love and call home. It’s not all casinos and neon and half naked showgirls, you know. We have hiking and schools and every day America life…and lots of neon. Plus Hollywood manages to portray us a certain way.  Contrary to popular CSI belief, it does not rain that much here.

Trust me, you don’t want to be around me when watching a movie or TV show set in Las Vegas. I’ve been known to yell at the TV if the details are wrong. My best friend usually just rolls his eyes at me and laughs when I do that.

What are some of your favorite Vegas related things? 

Betting on a God blurb:
Welcome to Mount Olympus, Sin City’s most opulent casino resort. Here you will be servedthe finest food, the most decadent wines, and every desire you crave. All provided for you by Dion Eliades, owner. And just like most things in Las Vegas, there is more to Mount Olympus and Dion than meets the eye.

After a thousand years, Dion, the Greek god of wine and merriment, is tired of playing human and wants to go home to Greece. That is, until he lays eyes on Sadie Flynn. Thanks to Madame Evangeline and 1Night Stand, this god is in for an adventure the likes of which he has never experienced. But only if Sadie agrees to bet on a god.

  1. I would have to say all the neon is my favorite thing. I've only been to Vegas twice but it's one of the best spots to people watch. That's always interesting!
