    Summary

    Selene was beautiful, appropriately so for a woman her status, and the warrior from Ares spun on her heel to leave the room.

    “Calysta.”

    She paused, her back to the Queen, and her lips twitched with the threat of a smile.

    “Stay.”

    Summary

    No matter how nice the sundress, how nice my hair was waved or my makeup was done, it didn't feel right. I wondered if Hades secretly felt out of place too, and that's why he was paying his own way through college, and why he had a dingy apartment in the city. I took the thought back immediately. He probably loved this part of his life, not having to worry if everything just fell from under him one day.

    Summary

Hades wants nothing to do with her, having felt betrayed by his one true love. Persephone wonders why the god always turns a cold shoulder to her whenever she enters the room.

    Summary

    Psyche had been taught love, now it was time for her lesson in pain.

    After striking a deal with the goddess Aphrodite, Psyche completed her three tasks to earn the right to speak to her God husband, Eros once more. But the chance was taken from her the moment Aphrodite caught her cheating and Psyche was forced to turn from the temple and away from her husband.

    Left to wander the world alone for an eternity, Psyche vows to make the best of a bad situation. With the help from an unlikely source, she finds herself moving on in life as she leaves behind her royal past for the future of a common individual and soon her pain just becomes another familiar friend.

    It isn't until her world is completely upsided by the arrival of her husband, Eros, who claims he had been searching for her for the last several thousand years and the painful memories slowly resurface. Will Eros find out the ugly truth of Psyche's punishment? And will she be able to reveal over two thousand years worth of secrets?

    A modern telling of what happens after Psyche completes the trials set by Aphrodite and veers completely away from the original ending of the myth.
