The Book:
Feared by mortals for his inexorable power, and loathed by his fellow Greek gods for the same, Hades rules the Underworld alone.  A stark eternity looms before him until he discovers Persephone. Struck by the youthful goddess’ beauty, kindness, and spirit, he must have her. But Hades believes Persephone could never love him, and so he conspires with his powerful brother, Zeus, to take her by force.

Persephone too seeks a mate but her possessive mother, the goddess Demeter, frustrates her husband hunting. Then Hades abducts Persephone, tearing her away from the Upperworld she loves to reign with him in the dank depths below. Though outraged, Persephone cannot deny the desire ignited within her by the dark lord’s touch. And even as she hopes that Demeter
will unearth her, Persephone aches to surrender to the heat in Hades’ immortal soul.

Excerpt:
“Enough,” Hades said, closing the distance between them. “I have taken you with your father’s consent, as custom allows. You are in my kingdom, under my rule, and if you have any care for your continued well-being, you will get into my bed. Now.” And with the removal of the pins that held together the black cloth about his waist, he stood naked before her.

The anger warming Persephone clashed with another fire that roared to life within her. She choked on a breath and turned her face from him. “Be warned; I will resist you with the full force of my being, through violent means, if necessary.”

His large, unyielding hands encircled the soft flesh of her upper arms as he said, “If you must. Though your surrender to me would prove more satisfying to us both.”

Extras:

Some Dark Romancing, Volume I
COMING JANUARY 2014* SOON!**
An anthology of three short paranormal/supernatural tales:

It's The Balm
Melissa just wants to catch the late bus home from work, but the dudes stumbling out of a nearby bar have other plans for her. Luckily, someone tall, dark, and handsome arrives to help her out...or should that be something?

The Sea Begins
One minute, Tina's having a blasty-blast with all her work friends at happy hour and the next, she finds herself alone on a remote clifftop—and very pregnant. How's she going to explain this to Comic Book Nick, the co-worker she's had her eye on for months? And what's with the two good looking weirdos who insist that what's growing inside Tina's belly is no normal baby?

A Circle Drawn
Newlyweds Hades and Persephone, King and Queen of the Underworld, are back and dealing with numerous mythological messes, among them: an absurdly zealous suitor, a request for long-term babysitting, and perhaps the worst menace ever known to the cosmos: in-laws.

In the pipeline:

Bedeviled ~ Work In Progress (WIP), romance w/supernatural elements, 1st in L'eaubénite (pronunciation: low-ben-EAT) series. Chick torn between a Scotsman, a Demon, and an Angel—what's a girl to do? (I should have such problems...)

There Are Monsters tentative title ~ WIP, pseudo-memoir of gal who became a vampire in 1987, paranormal romance. ('Cause, you know, that could totally have happened.)

Spooked ~ WIP, romance w/supernatural elements, 2nd in L'eaubénite series. Cousin to Main Character (MC) from Bedeviled being set upon by a ghost while torn between an actor and an agent. (I've got this thing for multiple-lovers-angst, could you tell?) (I should probably talk to a shrink about that.) (I really should, right???)

Outlawed ~ Researched but not yet begun, 3rd in L'eaubénite series. BFF (Best Friend Forever) of MC in Bedeviled (who betrayed the MC in that book) gets inadvertently cursed by the MC from Bedeviled and turned into a werewolf. (So, it's the BFF who's been cursed into a werewolf by the MC from Bedeviled.) (Don't you just hate when you inadvertently curse your BFFs? Gah, friendships can be so messy...) BFF to be torn between an FBI agent and a park ranger (SEE???). Or who knows, maybe she'll tear 'em both up while she's all wolfie, anything's possible...


*Lord willing and the police permitting. (I'm of Portuguese descent, I have to add the disclaimer. It's, like, a rule, somewhere.)

**See what I mean?

  1. First visit to your blog and I'm dying to read more of "That Fatal Kiss" - you would love my greek mythology serials - one in particular, "Kore" is a 5-part short fiction on Persephone (Kore) and Hades (Aides) - though, admittedly, not as steamy:)
    Cheers!
