It’s All Greek to Me: A Flash-Fiction Contest—Day 2

The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee CarterWhen Kate fell for cute loner Henry, she had no idea that her crush would change her entire life. Henry, better known as Hades, promises to save Kate’s mother from death when Kate is on the brink of despair and so begins their complicated relationship. Now, an older and more experienced Kate must choose between her life with Henry and their new baby, and the fate of the entire world as the gods battle for power.
