When the goddess of the Underworld meets a mythical monster, all hell breaks loose.
Persephone used to be a goddess and a queen until she tried to take revenge on Hades for abducting her all those eons ago. Stripped of her magic, she's just a lonely human, living in the small town of Saint's Grove, trusting no one, and hiding her true identity. But at least she's able to live on her own terms.
Jack, Ian and Grizzy make up the band Rowdy South. They've spent centuries in their human forms traveling the world and playing their soulful music. However, Jack is certain no one could ever love a monster like him.
In one night, the goddess and the monster ignite a passion that could burn forever… or take them both down in flames when they discover each other's deception. As danger closes in around the band and Hades returns for unknown reasons, Jack realizes their love could be the stuff of legends… If only he can convince Persephone to trust again and leave the past behind her.
Ruined Goddess is Book 1 in the #WhyChoose Paranormal Romance Persephone Trilogy
I THOUGHT RUINED GODDESS IS A WELL WRITTEN BOOK. THE STORYLINE KEPT MY INTEREST THROUGHOUT. I THOUGHT PERSEPHONE AND THE OTHER CHARACTERS WERE WELL DEVELOPED AND WRITTEN. I WILL CONTINUE WITH THE REST OF THE SERIES AND WOULD RECOMMEND READING.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Intriguing start to a new trilogy!
This is an intriguing take on the mythology of Persephone. I loved having Hades as a character and seeing his interaction with multiple characters at different points in the story. Seeing how their history shaped Persephone as a person and influenced her decisions made the story more compelling. Her past has certainly acted as a catalyst that changes how she views every interaction. The relationships here seemed organic and outside threats seem like they could provide real drama to the group.
