The Dark God

In a world where Gods rule and Demons are feared, Hades, the most notorious Phlegethon demon-god to roam the ancient world, has been betrayed…

Once more betrayed by those he’s served, battle-weary Hades claims Tartarus and the Underworld, putting his plan to ruin Zeus, King of the Olympians, into action. But when his mother returns with news about Persephone’s impending marriage to Helios, Hades knows he needs to change his plans to save the woman he has grown to care about before she’s destroyed by the cruelty of the Olympians.

Furious at the high-handed demand that she marry a god she despises with all her heart, and yet can’t remember why, Persephone uses magic she can’t control in a bid for freedom against those who would control her future and seeks sanctuary with Hades. But not all is what it seems.

Note: This is a retelling of My Lord Hades and covers the second third of the book, however, there are new scenes added, other scenes have been removed, and some of the plotline have been altered to fit a different vision for the book.

Stephannie’s Notes:

The inspiration for Love is Blind came from two different places. First, I had a deleted scene from My Lord Hades that I loved but had no use for in the book. Second, a few authors and I were putting together an anthology of short stories with the theme “love is blind.” My contribution to the anthology was a rewrite of the deleted scene from the point of view of the nymph. I thought that it would be perfect since the nymph believes she is in love with Hades after seeing him from a far and ignores her true love for another.

Once I rewrote the scene from the nymph Tarma’s point of view, I added a few more scenes to the story to length it and give it more context, including a scene that later made its way in Loving the Goddess of Love and a love scene between the nymph and her true love.

Life being what it is, the anthology was placed on the back burner and then abandoned. However, the story stuck with me and I decided to publish it as a sample story for My Lord Hades.

My Lord Hades by Stephannie Beman

Past shrouded in darkness and uncertainty, Persephone, daughter of the Earth goddess Demeter, hides from the world while she heals from the ordeal that stole her memories and her magic. She dreams of the freedom and love she believes out of her grasp, until a chance meeting with a stranger in the forest changes the course of her life forever.

Betrayed by the Gods he once served, battle-weary Hades promised to never allow another god power over him, but he didn’t plan on the intervention of the Fates intertwining his future with Persephone. She is the siren calling him, promising the completion of heart and soul, but only a fool accepts the gifts of a siren, or fights against the will of the Fates.
