What happens when the old gods are replaced with a singular, all-powerful deity, one who scoops up the bulk of their worshippers? Their powers fade. Some turn mortal. But none are going down without a fight.
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.
Court of the Phantom Queen (Book #1)
Length: ~ 35,000 words
Fantasy Romance with Mild Heat & Graphic Violence
Featured Deity: Athena (Lugh, Morrigan, Dagda, Sia, Hebe)
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.
Apollo’s Priestess (Book #2)
Release Date: December 18, 2017
Paranormal Romance (Shifter)
Featured Deity: Apollo ( + Slavic Pantheon, Athena, Zeus)
A story about a kidnapped priestess, the lone wolf shifter who rescues her, and a god desperate to prove his sister wrong.
336 AD. Constantine II rules the Roman Empire, and the Cult of One gains a foothold with the common people. A clash of belief systems is at hand.
Fresh from her misadventures in the western isles, Athena’s fears for the fate of her godly family fall upon deaf ears–particularly with carefree Apollo. As she ignores her father’s orders to stay within the empire and heads north for Asgard, Apollo, god of music, medicine, archery, and plague, immerses himself among the people to prove her concerns baseless.
Two years earlier, Lor, a devout priestess of Apollo, was kidnapped and sold illegally into slavery. Seven hundred and thirty long days of suffering at the hands of monsters haunts her, and she now fears her newest master plans to sell her to the highest, foulest bidder. Her heart burns with defiance, but surrounded by her master’s soldiers, she has little hope of escaping her fate…
Until a figure emerges from the shadows. Handsome, rugged barbarian one moment, a great black wolf the next, this mysterious stranger whisks her away from her captors–but has Lor traded one cage for another? Little does she know, there is more to this wolf shifter than meets the eye.
Apollo’s Priestess is the second novella in the Lovers and Liars: Immortal Wars series. While there is an overarching plot to the series about the old world gods going to war with one another, it can be read as a standalone paranormal romance. The novella centers around a former priestess and a wolf shifter. Contains a slow burn romance, graphic violence, and sexual content. Also includes a HEA and no cliffhanger for the love interests.
