5.0 out of 5 stars A darkly delicious and sensual look into the mind of Hades
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on August 15, 2022
Hades, God of the Underworld knows his mind and expects everyone to follow his rules. He has decadent nightclubs where he interacts with those who wish to make bargains with him. These bargains rarely ever go in anyone's favour but his own. As a God's bargain is his bond, Hades is very selective of the promises he makes. Hades controls everything in the world around him and is dismayed when he learns that the Fates have made decisions for him. They have chosen his future wife and Queen of the Underworld. They have chosen Persephone, Goddess of Spring and daughter of Demeter, one of Hades' enemies.

When Hades finally meets Persephone their instant sexual connection is intoxicating. He manages to snare her in a bargain to seduce/woo her. But Persephone, though attracted to Hades, is a headstrong, ambitious young woman determined to make a name for herself as a journalist. She sees how Hades operates his deals and decides to out his cruel and underhanded ways to the public.

Hades must accomplish the impossible and convince his future Queen that his intentions are not as dark and sinister as they may appear and that the Underworld is more than what the myths and legends would have her believe. To make matters more difficult there are outside forces determined to separate Hades and Persephone before their bond is solidified and will stop at nothing to keep them apart. Hades may risk taking on the Fates themselves to keep the woman he loves safe, even scarifying himself in the process.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. A Touch of Darkness told this story from Persephone's POV but being inside Hades' head is even more darkly delicious and sensual than just seeing his reactions through Persephone. We get a deeper understanding of Hades' motivations for his bargains and how strongly he takes his responsibilities in the Underworld, especially with the shame/guilt he feels for how he acted in the past. Reading this book as a companion piece to A Touch of Darkness fleshes out the love story and the characters beautifully. Highly recommend.
