This is not a work of erotica, nor, really, can I claim it is a work of romance. I would consider this piece somewhere between flash fiction and a short story. It leaves much behind, but still got my interest peaked and my heart going "Aww..." The tale of Hades & Persephone seems to be one of those that just asks for romance and erotica writers to take a stab at. And, this story is nothing new per se. It takes place in modern times with a woman who has been reborn as Persephone. Hades has wa...more
This book was quite an interesting short story with the intamcy between Hades and Jenna, but it was hard to get over the incorrect facts on the Greek god. I was pulled in by the passion between the two characters and saw a nice twist to how Hades is portrayed. The ending makes me wish there were more, but I find the ending hard to believe since Hades has to run the Underworld

An interesting twist to the Greek myth of Hades/Persephone. I wish it were longer. I'm really intrigued on how their relationship would have developed.

Short but pretty good.
I got this quite some time ago, but somehow I didn't find the time to read it.
Which is a shame as it was very sweet and short.

I was already reading another book and I needed some kind of break (unfortunately it happens to me a lot - I get distracted while reading a book- which doesn't mean I am not enjoying the book, I'm just a Gemini and I have a problem concentrating on only one thing sometimes so I need constant change and stimulation).

Anyways, I liked the fact that it was short and to the p...more
This read like a literary Swiss Cake Roll. Super sweet and you know it's probably not good for you, but that doesn't matter and you crave it anyway.

Hades and Persephone is one of my favorite Greek myths, and one that translates pretty easily into the romance genre for obvious reasons. As a short story, there was only so much to be done with it, and if you're looking for relationship buildup, this is going to disappoint you.

But if you like heroes to be called sexy Greek gods and it be literal, an...more

Jenna Krinard is just getting her life together with a new job and a new house - one that is truly beautiful to her. Then Hades kidnaps her and she remembers her former life with him.

Gotta love authors who make stories out of the mythology legends. Hades finally finally finds his Persephone and reunites them only to get her back to the underworld, Persephone has to give her soul up to Hades. Well after Persephone has lived as a human for the last 30 years and has finally got her own house, she is not ready to give up her world to go to the underworld. She wants both so she eats the forbidden fruit and tells Hades by eating the fruit she can spend 6 months a year with him in...more
I was not a fan of this super short read. While I absolutely love anything with a Greek Mythology base, this one bothered me. The biggest thing was that they referred to Zeus as Hades' father and that is not correct. If you are going to use Greek mythology get important parts correct especially the Gods family tree.
I think this would be a very interesting story if it was turned into a full novel. I felt that because it was so short it was lacking so much story for me. Though I did enjoy what was there.
It was really short I mean like four maybe five pages but the author had something going. I wish it was longer. Would like to have known how he ran off her suitors. It left me wanting more

The sad part is the size, a shame it's so short. The story of Hades and Persephone is beatiful, I love that myth.
It was a fun and sweet read anyway!

Cute and sweet. I wish it was longer, I'd love to see Hades for those six months among the mortals.

It was okay but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It was just... odd.
As good as it was, it was way to short.
