In Aphrodite the Beauty, Aphrodite, goddessgirl of love, must deal with jealousy after giving Athena a makeover.

She also copes with a crush from an unlikely source—the nerdy Hephaestus (god of the smith)—and learns that love comes in many forms.
Mortal girl Pallas can’t wait to go show off her swordplay skills at Mount Olympus Academy. As a member of the Cheer Blades, she is hoping to impress her childhood friend, Athena—until she learns Athena has a new group of BFFs in the Goddess Girls. Pallas hopes she can win Athena’s attention at the upcoming Greek Festival battle reenactment competition—and help Pallas prove she is just as good as any boy her age! But Athena is having her own jealousy issues, thanks to her new baby sister. Can these old BFFs work together to help each other out?
AS PERSEPHONE'S MOTHER ENCOURAGES HER to do,
she often "goes along to get along" instead of doing what she really
wants. But when she meets Mount Olympus Academy bad-boy Hades, she
finally feels she has found someone with whom she can be herself. He's
the first person who actually listens to her, and she finds
herself liking him, despite the fact that the other goddessgirls think
he's bad news. But if he makes her feel so special -- and she's so comfortable hanging around him
-- can he really be all that bad?

Williams put a modern spin on classic myths with the Goddess Girls
series. Follow the ins and outs of divine social life at Mount Olympus
Academy, where the most privileged godboys and goddessgirls in the Greek
pantheon hone their mythical skills.
Orpheus is a mortal rock god, and the girls at Mount Olympus Academy are wild about him! With his lyre and singing voice, Orpheus can charm pretty much anything—even things like stones and trees. But Hades and the other MOA boys aren’t charmed. In fact, they are less than thrilled that the girls are so gaga over this guy.
His fans are especially excited about his latest song about the girl he loved and lost, Eurydice. Orpheus was devastated when he lost Eurydice to the Underworld, so he asks Persephone to help get her back. Though it means breaking some very serious Underworld rules, Persephone pushes Hades to return Eurydice to the living world. But restoring Orpheus’s one true love might jeopardize Persephone’s own chances with her biggest crush...
Eris is a goddess girl who has a penchant for causing trouble. So when her brother, Ares, is celebrating his thirteenth birthday, she can’t let the occasion go by without a little mischief. After all, she is the goddess of discord and strife! Aphrodite is determined to make sure Ares gets the attention he deserves, but can she handle what Eris has planned?
In book 5, Principal Zeus asks Athena to help Heracles (aka Hercules in the Roman pantheon) complete his twelve labors. But when Heracles starts borrowing Athena's friends things without asking, will she be able to help him set things straight?
Being the goddess of night is not as easy as it seems-after all, Nyx is in the constant shadow of Eos, Goddess of Light. When Nyx has the chance to go to MOA as an Unsung Hero, she thinks she can finally shine in her own way. But Principal Zeus is so scared of the darkness Nyx brings, he still sleeps with a nightlight! And her arrival seems to bring on more nightmares than sweet dreams. Can Nyx convince everyone that a little darkness is a good thing?
Athena’s arrogance gets the best of her when her attempts to improve King Minos’s labyrinth have unexpected—and disastrous—results!
Athena, Persephone, Aphrodite, and Artemis are so annoyed at being left
out of the annual boys-only Olympic Games. Their solution? The Girl
Games! But as the Goddess Girls work to turn their dream into a reality,
they come up against plenty of chaos, competition, and even the cutest
kitten ever. Told in the four girls' alternating points of view, this
Super Special is packed with Olympic spirit!
