Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.
Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.
After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.
The bet does more than expose Persephone's failure as a goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows-and it's forbidden.
Contains mature themes.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This urban fantasy proves that a hellish romance can be quite steamy. In a world where Greek gods and mortals live side by side, Persephone—the naive goddess of spring—is newly on her own and free from her overbearing mother, Demeter, when she meets a cunning nightclub owner. The impresario happens to be Hades, the slick god of the Underworld, and he soon gets her to sign a seemingly impossible contract. Scarlett St. Clair concocts a fun, imaginative world, with Zeus owning a marketing agency and Apollo enjoying success as a rock star. The intense sexual tension between the initially innocent Persephone and sultry Hades is next level, with fiery words leading to positively smoldering encounters. Narrator Meg Sylvan’s bubbly enthusiasm (and hilarious take on the characters’ witty banter) brings just the right energy to this wild romp.
