About The Goddess Legacy: For millennia we’ve caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aimée Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows.

Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness….

Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal….

Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another….

James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others-but never knew true loss before….

Henry/Hades’s solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope….

Five original novellas of love, loss and longing and the will to survive throughout the ages.

The Goddess Inheritance – Book 3 – coming 2013

Our featured novella,  God of Darkness,  is very short and gives a snippet of an important conversation between Calliope and the God of Darkness- Hades. You’ll learn why Hades chose the name Henry, and who gave it to him. Whose namesake in history does he carry?
Henry is still haunted by his marriage to Persephone, he’s loyal to the love he felt towards her. He feels like just a shadow of a man, a shell–incapable of loving anyone. Love and companionship are offered to him in this novella. So what do you think…does he accept the offer? What are the terms? You’ll have to read The Goddess Legacy to find out!
