What if the man you love is the God of the Dead?

That’s the problem facing Persephone. Her mother, Demeter, is a Level-1 goddess who wants Persephone to marry Darryl, demi-god of home repairs, and stay close to home. Her father, Zeus, the top god on Mount Olympus, is a bit grumpy these days, fed-up with all the demands being made on him. And Hades, well, now that she’s getting to know him, Hades isn’t what Persephone expected at all — he’s handsome, smart, sensitive and witty — in a word, hot.

Beautiful, intelligent and strong-willed, Persephone’s in line to be a Level-1 goddess herself someday. The problem is … she’s dissatisfied and restless.

This new take on the classic myth is a smart, sexy, fast-moving read. Dead Beautiful explores the many faces of love, explains why there are four seasons, and reveals what really happens after death.
