Luther Hades has always been my family’s sworn enemy. He’s the opposite of everything we stand for—ruthless to the core.
I’m not afraid of him. It’s my mother who cowers and hides. All my life, she’s hidden me from him. Hidden me from the world. Not anymore.
I’ve planned my escape down to the last detail. But two steps outside the safety of my mother’s house, the devil comes calling. And nobody hears me scream.
*****
Little Sepphie Anthela doesn’t know she’s in danger. That her fool of a lover has betrayed her. That her adorable plan is a death sentence.
She doesn’t know how men look at her.
And she doesn’t know the lengths I’m willing to go to protect her. She’ll be safe in my underground kingdom—even if it kills me.

“I’m tempting death itself. Death in a white dress shirt. Death in his eyes- a warning, a promise. Violence all wrapped up in expensive cloth!”

EXCERPT

“Are you going to kill me now?”
My men step up behind her, but she doesn’t dare turn her head. Two of them hook their arms under Decker’s and drag him past us, giving us a wide berth. Her eyes follow his slumped body. The man won’t shut up. All the groaning, the whining—fucking pathetic.
“You said you would do anything to save him. That was your bargain. Are you telling me you’d rather be dead?”
A flicker of fear is chased off her face by a nameless expression, a light flaring in her eyes. She glances down at Conor, the whites of her eyes glowing in the moonlight. “No,” she whispers. “I want to live.”
I lean in close, bending down so my lips are level with my ear. Her heart beats hard under my fingertips. She smells sweet, like roses and sunshine and something unique to her. It must be the fresh softness of her. Fuck, the things I’m going to do to her, dangling her not-boyfriend on a string as if she’ll ever be anything but mine. The urge to throw her down into the dirt is so strong it almost overtakes me, but now that all this has transpired, it’s best for the train to move on. I’m no longer interested in dealing with Demeter tonight—not now that I have her daughter for my very own.
The poor thing.
“We’ll see how long that lasts.”

Review:

I just love reading books about Hades & Persephone. For me it is always better when it’s done as a dark romance story, not just because that is my favorite, but because I think it represents them more. Amelia handled this story very well, and I look forward to checking out more of her work.

This was a dual POV, which I loved, and it made this story so much more. The mystery, suspense, and emotional aspects really kept me reading it in one sitting. This is a bit inst-love-ish, and I am very vocal about how I do not like those stories. I feel this one was so much “ish” that it watered down it enough to where I didn’t mind it actually.

Hades was great for me in this book. He was very intense, and just the right amount of alpha that I couldn’t get enough. I would have liked though to see more between him and his brother. I really enjoyed those parts. Persephone did kinda border on a bit to much for me. The chemistry between them was well done though. It also had the right amount of erotica, dirty and just smokin hot scenes.

This does end in a cliffy, and depending on your tolerance for them, it might be a big one for you. An emotional big one at that. I enjoy cliffy hangers so this book was a win for me here. I am excited about the next book, and I hope you check this one out.

About Amelia Wilde

Amelia Wilde wrote her first story when she was six years old, a narrative strongly inspired by The Polar Express. When she was nine she wrote her first novel-length work, all in one paragraph.

Now, Amelia is all about that love. Her romances feature unique, independent heroines and alpha heroes who are strong of heart and body. Readers have described her work as “emotional,” “intense,” “phenomenal,” and “like a child scribbled with a crayon,” which she takes as the highest praise.
