New Release: The Goddess of Chaos

The Goddess of Chaos by Cheyenne Bennett

The Goddess Chaos_Cheyenne Bennett.jpg

Victoria Wells’s life is blissful – if not a little dull. However, where ever she goes, chaos seems to follow her. Only her fiancé, Gerald, can keep her balanced. That all changes when Victoria Wells falls asleep in her fiancé’s car on the way to their wedding. Hours later, she is woken up – chained to a bed in a strange new world. An eccentric man she had a bizarre encounter with earlier, is standing above her.

From there, everything grows more twisted. The strange man tells her that she’s in the Underworld of all places. And what’s more, she’s the powerful and merciless Goddess of Chaos.

Could she be having a fever dream, or is everything … real? With forces vying for her powers, her fiancé – who is truly the God of Chaos – acting increasingly evil and the powers of Chaos itself growing more powerful and unstable in her veins, Victoria isn’t convinced that she – or the world itself – will survive an unbalanced Chaos incarnate.

Sorcerers, dragons, Gods and Goddesses, romance, and adventure, follow Victoria as she faces a terrifying truth and navigates an increasingly chaotic – and dangerous – existence.

About the Author…

Cheyenne Bennett was born and raised in the ocean-kissed state, California. She spent most of her childhood buried deep within Fantasy books. It was then she realized that anything was possible with the power of imagination. Everything you experience was originally created in someone’s imagination before they birthed it into creation. She wanted to be able to share the worlds she created with the people she loved the most. When she had a daughter, who also is growing up to be an avid reader, she wanted to provide books with real characters. Characters that are struggling with anxiety, depression, and even domestic issues. Characters who are able to overcome these to accomplish their goal and defeat the villain or change the world. It is Cheyenne’s dream to continue to write stories so that everyone can find a character that they can connect with. Check out her website:

I had really hoped that with Spring would come new changes, chances and a clearer head. Unfortunately, either I am blocking the clarity or none is there at this time. I feel like I am always floundering. Always searching for something – no idea what I’m searching for and no idea on how to figure it out.

Each day dawns clear and bright and new. I have the ability to do whatever I want but I tend to hibernate. Not something I really want to do. But, to go out just aimlessly is also not something I really want to do – so I just stay home – with the few exceptions when I go out and run errands…a few errands I do enjoy – I do enjoy a few

I’m not sure if it’s the house that is causing this particular floundering episode or if it’s just a combination of my life. And I’m not sure if I really want to dig too deep to figure out what is going on in my own head.

All I can do is take one day at a time…

About the Author…

I’m an emerging author of paranormal cozy mystery. I fell in love with mystery the moment I developed consciousness. I’m especially fond of lighthearted murder mystery stories with a little sprinkle of romance.

I went to medical school hoping to see real corpses and sexy professors. Back then, I was into this kind of mystery series about a smokin’ hot forensic medicine professor and a quirky female student going a-sleuthing, cracking unsolvable cases. I truly, madly wanted to team up with a superhot professor and crack a difficult murder or two. (Note; I got to see the corpses, but sexy professors were nonexistent.)

I appreciate your reviews so much! And I love to hear from my readers. Feel free to drop me a line at

A heartwarming cozy mystery series about losing everything, taking a chance, and starting again.

After suffering a personal tragedy Abby Sullivan buys a huge old seaside mansion she has never even seen, packs up her life in San Francisco, and moves to Holiday Bay Maine, where she is adopted, quite against her will, by a huge Maine Coon Cat named Rufus, a drifter with her own tragic past named Georgia, and a giant dog with an inferiority complex named Ramos.

Meanwhile, Chief Colt Wilder uncovers a new clue relating to the death of a local girl the previous summer. In spite of her vow to focus her time on her writing, Abby finds herself pulled into the tangled web of half truths that may tell a different story than was first believed true.

Join Abby, Georgia, Rufus, and Ramos, as they continue with the remodel on the old mansion, prepare for a busy summer season, and continue to find a new meaning for their lives in the charming small town of Holiday Bay.
