"Welcome to Hell.”

Persephone Fields is just an average girl: beloved daughter and loyal friend. One night decides her Fate, when the prince of The Underworld becomes her savior and her kidnapper.

Hades has lived centuries in darkness and sin. When he decides to save the blonde goddess, he doesn’t consider the ramifications of his decision to bring her into his realm.

Two worlds divided struggle to find friendship in a history of family discord beyond their control. When attraction blurs the line, questions result in choices of love or loyalty.

A modern twist of the classic myth: Hades and Persephone, this version incorporates the sensual tension of opposites divided by contemporary humanity and mythical underworlds. Also reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, this is a love story ripe with desire.

My Review

Hades is the debut novel by Author L. B. Dunbar, writing as Elda Lore. It is a upper YA/NA, scorching hot paranormal romance novel.

“Welcome to Hell.”

We’ve all heard the saying that opposites attract.  I’m not sure that two characters could be drastically more opposite than Hades, son of the ruler of Hell, and Persephone.  Their worlds were never meant to collide in such a way as this, but fate was playing with their lives when circumstances out their control led them to each other.

“My mind muddled through the turmoil of being trapped where I didn’t belong and sensing here was where I was destined to be.”

I love novels based on Greek mythology, and have already devoured numerous novels by L. B. Dunbar.  Journeying into the paranormal realm with her was an exciting and anticipated road.  Both Persephone and Hades were quite remarkable characters.  Persephone’s inner turmoil and conflict was a large part of this story. It culminated in several bombshells that left me speechless and hurriedly turning page after page to read more. But, the character of Hades was just one that I couldn’t not fall for.  As much as his roll in life dictated that I should dislike him, I found myself cheering for him and hoping that the universe would allow love to prevail.

“Let me love you.  Let me learn what that means.”

Not only did Author Elda Lore reveal her staying power in paranormal, she did so giving the sensual and sultry, and leaving me with a thirst for more. This was an excellent escape.
