Lovers and Liars: Immortal Wars is a prequel series to Lovers and Liars, and details the doom of the old world gods. Each piece is both a standalone and a chapter in an interconnected plot strand. All will either be romance focused or have a strong romantic subplot.

For centuries, the house of Zeus has reigned over some of the world’s largest, most powerful civilizations. First with the Greeks, next with the Romans and their conquered foes. Fueled by their worship, the old Hellenic gods remained unchallenged and supreme for centuries. Now, in the fourth century of the new world order, goddess Athena has discovered a growing enemy: the fanatical Cult of One.
As sanctions arise for pagan worshipers across the Roman empire, Athena decides to unite all the godly pantheons of the human world. Her vision: a council of rational, reasonable representatives from each house to come together and combat their common enemy.
But with arrogant gods and goddesses, both in her house and beyond, that’s easier said than done.
Athena refuses to be beaten, however, and vows to bring her vision to life. The first step is to visit each house and plead her case. With a motley crew of world-wise companions, she begins in the western isles, where she stumbles upon a god who once set her heart aflame in the court of Dagda and his mistress Morrigan, the Phantom Queen.
Unfortunately for Athena, not all gods are interested in playing nice with others.
