Hot as Hades
Ensnaring the ultimate bad boy has its risks…and its rewards.
It’s not easy being Hades. Constantly guarding his world against other meddling and ambitious deities is stressful work. So when a naked goddess falls directly into his lap, along with the news that he has to shelter her for the indefinite future, he is less than thrilled. Particularly since he can’t help but...more

I don't expect the meaning of life when I read an erotica. But I do like some romance and humor thrown into a sexy story. This quick read by Rai is exactly how I like my erotica....fast-paced and hot! It's a fun, extremely sexy, mythologically-inspired quickie. And she does a fabulous job making us care about the characters in a short amount of time. She also manages to squeeze in some emotion and a sweet HEA. The sexy-hot meter on this one is in the Naga Viper chili pe ...more
Warning: Contains an arrogant god, a stubborn goddess, horny deity nookie and enough supernatural friction to set the Underworld on fire.
If you’re familiar with Alisha Rai’s work then you know after a “warning” like this you’re probably in for a sexin’ good time.
For me Hades and his “little ...more

Unlike his siblings, Hades, God of the Underworld, lives a solitary life. Or rather, he does so until a naked woman falls right into his lap. Hades doesn’t know Persephone from Hera, but he can tell she’s a powerful goddess. After years of protecting his realm from interlopers, that makes him suspicious of Persephone. Yet there’s no denying his attraction to the beautiful goddess and before long Hades believ ...more
The snark-y tone that Hades employed when talking about his job or Persephone's chiding 'don't be an idiot' comments made me smile. While I don't think he necessarily enjoyed his job, he definitely could do ...more
I've been wanting to read a Hades/Persephone retelling for a while now and since this erotica was only 99 pages, I decided to pick it up.
For an "erotic book", it was very light on sex, but I didn't mind at all. Frankly, I've read erotica that's been 98% sex and they're pretty forgettable. I need plot development to really enjoy a story (erotica or otherwise) and Hot as Hades took the time to develop a new spin on the myth and develop the characters! It was done very nicely.
In this retelling, H ...more
The dialogues are fun to read, and I don't mi ...more
Nice hot little story that one!
I liked the fact that despite Hades's being an ancient God, He is still cool and collected (and sexy as Hell - pun intended).
Just one problem - Why so short?
If it was longer Hades could have acted out some more as a bad-boy sexy God.... I just love bad-boy sexy Gods (or half gods with a leathal hand, a gotee and a name that's starts with V....)
Anyway - GO READ!
Hades is alpha, gruff and dirty in bed, while Persephone is very Mother Earthy, sweet and willing to be corrupted.
Almost the entire novella had H and h together building the relationship, not much exploring the Underworld or the mythology, but still a very sexy, fun read! As always this author never disappoints!
I surprised myself when I laughed reading an erotic novella!
And, even if it was steamy, it was surprisingly "chaste" for an erotic read.
Great job! :D

How we got this book: From the Autho
1. Thoughts on the Hero
Lou – I loved Hades so much. He was sarcastic, he was immature, and he had a temper, but he was oh so funny. Alisha really made a wonderful character and hero out of him. I liked that he had a hidden soft side, but he also had a very very smexy side. The first scene when Sephie first met Hades was very erot ...more
If I'm going to read a book that makes me blush to my eyebrows on the subway then I want a little more to it.
Really, they had me at "horny deity nookie"...
This was a fun, sexy, quick take on the Persephone/Hades story. I'm not always a fan of Gods/Goddesses as main characters in fiction but this one worked for me. I think it was because, much like the warning, it didn't take itself ...more
Even after a sentence I could tell, this book won't really have me and will be a one-time read. And I was right. Let's begin with the first problem: I couldn't place the story in time. I suppose it was in the time of the ancient greek, but for that the language was... off. If not for the names I wouldn't have been able to tell that I'm reading about dieties
And let me ...more

"I suppose so."
Her smile grew wider. "Because you want me to disobey you."
