Summary for Receiver of Many:

Persephone's life has been one of leisure among the verdant fields: the maiden of flowers, sheltered by her mother, the Harvest Goddess Demeter. Now she is a woman, a goddess in her own right, yearning for freedom— even as the terms of an ancient pact are about to come due.

Hades's life has been one of solitude in the somber land of the dead: the God of the Underworld, he lives without attachments, eternally governing the souls of mortals. But he dreams of the young goddess who was promised to be his wife, and knows it is time for his Kingdom to have a Queen.

When Hades arrives to claim his betrothed, he finds a young goddess eager to unearth her divine potential— and a powerful mother unwilling to let go. Receiver of Many begins an erotic story of passion and possession, duty and desire, and a struggle that threatens both ancient Greece and the Realm of the Dead itself.

Summary for Destroyer of Light:

The marriage of Hades and Persephone blossoms and their mysterious grove in the world below thrives…
…while the sunlit world withers.

Demeter holds out in Eleusis, pushing both mankind and the gods to frozen starvation in order to reclaim her daughter. The newly married rulers of the dead must reach an accord with Persephone’s mother to stay her deadly course— and come face to face with sacrifice, responsibility, and the balance of power among the gods.

Destroyer of Light concludes the erotic romance begun in Receiver of Many: a battle of wills among the gods is writ large across the dying earth, a cruel sorcerer-king faces his trial, and the King and Queen of the Underworld realize a destiny that the Fates alone could have foreseen.

Summary for The Good Counselor:

Book Three in the Hades and Persephone series is NOW AVAILABLE! Nearly a century has passed since Hades and Persephone’s children were foretold, but their efforts to conceive have been in vain. A secret rite on Samothrace conducted by the gifted hymnist, Orpheus, might finally bend the will of the Fates and give the King and Queen of the Underworld everything they have ever dreamed of, or pave a path of unimaginable suffering.

Falling Back Into Chaos by rrabbit reviews
A collection of myths I always found fascinating told from the point of view of the women who were forced into difficult situations and relationships. Each chapter is a stand alone story that will weave and overlap with the others to form one over all narrative. Starting with Eros and Psyche, my retellings are mature and will get progressively darker and more twisted.

The Dead Chronicles: Our Lady of the Underworld by S.A.M. - Piccarda reviews
There was no abduction, no trickery and certainly no rape between Hades and Persephone. There was only a misunderstanding, the laws of the Underworld, a lazy gardener and the conviction of a young woman in love with a god.

Blood and Nerve by hasitsclaws reviews
Logically he knew that all of this happiness couldn't last forever. No matter how much they tried to ignore it, there was a war on the horizon. Their only hope was finding the Key to Tartarus first, because if they didn't that meant the Titans would go free and the world would end. Hey, no one had ever said the life of a reincarnated God would be easy. Sequel to Bone and Skin.

Receiver of Many reviews
The story of Hades and Persephone... "Who are you?" "This is your dream, remember? Tell me who I am..." he said, absently coiling a tendril of her long hair around a finger. She narrowed her eyes at him. "If this is my dream, oneiroi, then answer my question. Who are you?" The voice of a natural ruler, he thought. He leaned down and whispered in her ear. "I am your lord husband."

Valentine's Day one-shot! Set 1500 years after Receiver of Many, Hades and Persephone get an unexpected visitor… "Her name is Psyche. She says Venus sent her." "For what?" Aidon asked. "That's what I need to ask you about." Persephone settled on the divan and crossed her legs. "Why, pray tell, husband, would Aphrodite think that there is a box of beauty that I keep at my bedside?"
