Not sure if you want to buy My Lord Hades, well let me tell you what the book is about:
Past shrouded in darkness and uncertainty, Persephone, daughter of the Earth goddess Demeter, hides from the world while she heals from the ordeal that stole her memories and her magic. She dreams of the freedom and love she believes out of her grasp, until a chance meeting with a stranger in the forest changes the course of her life forever.
Betrayed by the Gods he once served, battle-weary Hades promised to never allow another god power over him, but he didn’t plan on the intervention of the Fates intertwining his future with Persephone. She is the siren calling him, promising the completion of heart and soul, but only a fool accepts the gifts of a siren, or fights against the will of the Fates.
And if you’re still unsure, have a small taste from the book:
“Hades,” her soft voice whispered across his senses. “I know you can hear me, Hades. Wake up.”
He groaned, shifting his tired muscles. The effort to move taxed him, but the thought of seeing her again, even for a moment, bolstered his failing strength.
He placed his weight upon his legs and straightened. The chains above his head rattled. The pressure on his suspended arms lessened until needles tingled beneath the surface of his numb limbs. Jagged stones and shards of broken pottery sliced the soles of his tattered feet.
Peering through the greasy black strands of his long hair, he stared at the renewed torment that would be his.
She stood before him, stunning and child-like, highlighted by the faintest glow in the cold, windowless cell of his prison. Her black hair was a tangled mess. Her skin was marked by bruises and smudges of dirt. Her white dress hung in soiled tatters from her willowy frame, revealing the fullness of her breast, the curve of her hip, and the length of her thigh. It was a peek and tease that held no desire for him.
But Coronus couldn’t have known that when he sent Leuce to him. He didn’t know the truth behind their relationship.
“Look at me, Hades,” she snapped, a sudden and sharp relief to the screams whirling around him. “See what your pride has done to me!”
He winced, fighting the urge to play Coronus’ twisted game. She wasn’t his Leuce. His Leuce was dead. The creature before him a mere shade of the woman he had known. She was a puppet, a spirit trapped in the Hell that was his prison, a pawn to the whims of their jailer.
“Go away, phantom,” he rasped.
She stamped her foot. “Look at me, damn you!”
He lifted his heavy head, and the coarse hair of his tangled beard pulled against the half-healed scabs covering his chest. He met her eyes and a triumphant smile twisted her face, but in the depths of her black eyes he could see his enemy, his tormentor, his unwelcome king. This was Coronus and he had to be careful, because if Coronus realized how her presence affected him, she would be trapped in this cesspool of misery, her voice joining the masses inside his cell. He could survive anything they threw his way, but not that, not her.
If she stayed, her presence would break him. Piece by piece she would destroy what little soul he had left, and with it, his will to resist Coronus. If she remained here, he would grow to hate her in death with the same passion with which he loved her in life.
