Abby’s major screw-up brings the wrath of Zeus upon her head. He offers her a choice—work for him or spend the rest of her days hanging out in Hades with her ex-husband. For Abby, this choice is a no-brainer, especially when Zeus says the only thing he wants her to do is make a love match. She’s the Goddess of Love. What could go wrong?
Abby stumbles into an ex-lover, a dead demi-god and the realization that a crucial relic has been stolen right out from underneath Zeus’ nose. Eris, the Goddess of Chaos and Discord, is behind the theft and murder and the faltering powers Abby is trying to keep secret. With Zeus breathing down her neck, she’ll need to keep her wits about her as she races against the clock and Zeus’ imposed two-week time period.
Of course, this is easier said than done. Not only is she struggling with a budding attraction to a sexy lawman and feelings for long-time friend, Hermes, she’s also trying to keep everyone out of the path of a vengeful goddess while saving the Earth and Olympus from the reign of a tyrant. What’s a goddess to do when the fate of the world rests upon her fashionable shoulders?
After the debacle with Eris, Abby has settled into her new life. She’s living in tentative peace with Artie and Keto and beginning to deal with the new powers thrust upon her after her last battle. Everything appears to be fine until Ares shows up unexpectedly one morning and appeals to Abby for help.
Someone has stolen the Sword of God, a priceless relic allowing the wielder to control the world. But that’s not all. A monstrous, ancient being has awakened sending Olympus into panic mode and Abby scrambling to figure out who’s behind it all. Once again she gets caught up in politics and danger, but this time, the stakes are higher. Her friends are keeping deadly secrets and the most obvious villain may not be so evil after all.
Will Abby figure the puzzle out in time, or will this be the time the power hungry Olympian gods win?
After the shocking events of the last installment, Abby and Artie are left in the dungeons to die. Salvation comes to Abby in the form of a dirty chicken bone and sheer, angry persistence. Once escaped, Abby must reunite with her friends and figure out how to take down two of the Twelve Olympians in Zeus’ inner circle.
With her house destroyed and Artie barely able to string a sentence together, Abby has to gather her strength and her wits about her as she struggles to deal with this new, deadly threat to Olympus before it destroys everything she holds dear. Along with her wardrobe.
And everyone knows you don’t mess around with a goddesses’ wardrobe.

A 30k Between the Chronicles Novella- Just in time for Christmas!!
Zeus has anger issues. Abby has a house far away from Olympus. Cue a mass exodus from Zeus’ legendary temper and into the small town of Asheville, North Carolina.
Guess who’s coming to Christmas dinner?
Imagine a house crammed full of mythical legends and two of Abby’s ex-lovers. You’ve never experienced a more awkward holiday than the one about to happen at Abby’s house.
A new day. A new boss. A new job that may not be all it’s cracked up to be.
Hades has given Abby what appears to be an easy task. Wrangle his errant wife Persephone back to the Underworld. No problem, right?
When Abby finally finds her, a case of mistaken identity leads to Abby being forced into Persephone’s “close” circle of friends…and acting as her maid of honor. Considering Persephone is already married to the King of the Underworld, there’s something not quite right upstairs with her.
Even worse, Persephone is a typical mean girl and she has no intentions of returning home to her doting husband. As wedding bells grow closer for Persephone and her unsuspecting mortal groom, Abby begins to wonder what Hades sees in this wretch of a girl and why she’s even bothering to try to break up this sham of a wedding.
But as with most things involving Olympus, things are not always as they seem. Join Abby and her friends for the wedding of the century, complete with bad bridesmaid dresses, paranormal drama, and cake testing. By the end of it, someone is either going to be married…or dead.
It’s time to pay the piper.
Or, Typhon, in Abby’s case.
To settle her debt to Zeus’ son, Abby agrees to participate in the Olympian games of old and allow suitors the opportunity to win her hand in marriage. Specifically, Typhon, because he’s adamant he will be the champion.
Except…Abby doesn’t want to get married anytime soon unless it’s to the man who has challenged her heart and soul every step of the way.
But Hades no longer seems terribly interested in participating in the games even though he has repeatedly told her not to worry about the outcome.
Easy for him to say. He’s not the wishbone in the paranormal turkey.
Enemies, old lovers, and friends will come together in the latest installment of Abby’s hijinks, but when the dust settles and the victor is declared, will she be the winner?
Or will her heart be bound to another?
