Medusa tries her hand at wedding planner as the gods tear apart her city.

My boyfriend’s sister, Sandra, is getting married and she’s asked for my help. Well, I’ve seen plenty of weddings over the centuries, so I’ve got some cool ideas. Only thing is, Sandra and I don’t get along.

But that’s hardly the worst of it. Apparently there’s this dwarf with blue skin roaming around Sunland University looking for me so that he can give me Pandora’s Jar. Pandora’s Jar contains the last drops of nectar, an elixir that can magically turn any mortal immortal. And if you’ve ever met Persephone’s infernal family, they’ve lived for thousands of years and become a pretty lonely bunch. Because they’re awful people.

Well, I don’t want to have anything to do with protecting their jar. I’d rather plan Sandra’s wedding. Unless they threaten my home. If they do that, Medusa’s gonna tear them into little pieces.

Medusa’s back home in Florida in this urban fantasy. But there’s a storm brewing. Although Nectar of Ambrosia is chronologically Book III in the Furies series, this book is a stand-alone that was written to be enjoyed without having read the first novel, My Evil Eye.



A short story novella
Arachne in the 21st Century

An urban fantasy by A.L. Hawke

Medusa vacays on the Italian Riviera to stop her best friend from destroying the world.

I’m staying off the coast on the Italian Riviera in Portofino. Have you ever been? It’s this gorgeous bay surrounded by rectangular red and yellow pastel buildings with swanky shops, restaurants and gorge trails.

Well, I don’t want to be here. And I really didn’t want my lover to join me. See, I came to protect my friend. The ancient Greek gods of Olympus claim Arachne holds the Scepter of Azure. The Scepter is a weapon that can freeze an entire city. Well, I don’t really care about the Scepter, I care about my friend. Of course, Arachne can hold her own. Don’t ever underestimate animals like spiders—or snakes, like me, for that matter.

The Guardian is a short story.

Medusa returns from My Evil Eye in this vacation urban fantasy novella. Although The Guardian is chronologically Book II in the Furies series, this book is a distinctive stand-alone that was written to be enjoyed without having read the first novel, My Evil Eye.


Medusa in the 21st Century

An urban fantasy romance by A.L. Hawke

My Evil Eye cover

Don’t look at me. Just don’t.
My name’s Gorgiana. For decades, I’ve lived a happy, simple life, shelving books at Sunland University’s library in Florida. But my peace ended when I witnessed an assault, bringing back horrors from my past. Or course, I took care of him. His body’s no longer whole. But that revealed my location. 
I asked for help from my best friend, Cora, the goddess Persephone, and everything turned out just peachy. More than peachy. I met this real hot guy named Ash that same night. Later he took me out to a nightclub by the beach—next, a movie. All was well, until some thug stuck a gun in my boyfriend’s back. But I took care of him. He’s in pieces now too. But it all puts Medusa in a heap of trouble.
See, my name’s Medusa. Yeah, I’m that monster with the snakes in my hair. I warned you not to look.


Persephone in the 21st Century

An urban fantasy romance by A.L. Hawke

CORA. Click for available retailers.

Cora has it all, but she doesn’t have a man. They keep dying on her.

She is the immortal Greek goddess Persephone, drinking and reveling in a Malibu beach house in the twenty-first century. But no matter her wild antics or psychotherapy, nothing can ease the pain over her latest husband’s murder. Except perhaps the prudish but handsome Mr. Gabriel Cartwright.

Gabe is a young East Coast realtor who’s hired to transfer her things to her new home in Toronto. Cora likes him. He has such a kind and sweet heart. But her lover holds secrets. He is a member of a nymph race that Imada, an ancient order of gods, has been hunting to extinction; a race Persephone has fought millennia to protect. That’s why she hired him. She wants to be close to him. She wants to care for him. Only Imada cares for Gabriel too—they want him dead.

Cora will protect her man or tear Imada apart trying.


“Meet Cora Aregard. She’s beautiful, sexy, rich. Very beautiful. Very sexy. Very, very rich. She has an unquenchable thirst for the good things of life – alcohol, drugs, food, men – and an unerring ability to get them. Oh, and she’s immortal too.”

“You’ve probably got some sort of image of an immortal goddess in your mind. Take it and throw it away. What AL Hawke has created is something new. There is nothing godly about this goddess. Cora is a larger-than-life character who loves sex and indulges in it constantly in as many permutations possible. She is a woman of limitless wants, and what she wants she gets.” review

A word about the Furies series

If you’ve been browsing, you might have noticed that A.L. Hawke has a special affinity for Cora. Cora is the goddess Persephone. And, yes, she’s the same Cora featured in the epic fantasy Azure Series. All the books are connected and all are part of the same universe. But, while the epic fantasy Azure Series takes place in Ancient Greece and Egypt, the Furies series takes place in a contemporary setting four thousand years later in the 21st century. And the content of Furies is mature.

Content Rating: Mature
The Furies feature goddesses and monsters who enjoy bad language, sex scenes and adult situations.
