It was bad enough that gods gambled with human souls, but Catherine Sharp's soul just had to be won by the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris. As if working a dead-end tech support job didn't suck the life out of her as it was. Now, Cat finds herself performing random tasks for the goddess in her free time. But when Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her own soul in Mayhem's weekly poker game, Cat wants in on the action. With five sneaky gods upping the ante, Cat needs to find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her soul. Marius, a handsome yet irritating satyr with his own debt to Eris, might finally come in handy for something. If they play their cards right and work together, Cat and Marius may just get their freedom back. If they don't kill each other—or fall in love—first.

But I was drawn in by the MC's whose situations were quite desperate. As usual for this trope the Gods run amok, quite inexplicably making Ca...

I really enjoyed her story telling and she had a great concept. Loads of action and intrigue to go around.She lost me a bit in the romance, cause there rea...
I think Wild Card is a good start to (I'm assuming) a new urban fantasy series. I don't see any other books in the works, but that's never stopped an author before! Cat is an extremely skilled computer tech who lost her soul to Eris in a game of poker. The hows aren't explained till toward the end...
