An urban fantasy Hades and Persephone retelling perfect for fans of Crescent City and The Cruel Prince.
“Putting aside the fact that he was my ex-boss and the fact he had orchestrated my kidnapping, I had no business being the wife of a king.”
My first wife died three centuries ago. Now, Aranthium was facing a major threat. Time without having a queen had weakened my powers. In order to win the war against my brother Phelix, I needed to remarry.
After months of being paraded around with the most eligible Aranthian bachelorettes, I made my choice. Phaedra was not a princess, nor did she come from a powerful family. But, somehow, she had the power of the gods. She was exactly what I needed in my life.
The only problem was she made me feel things I had no right feeling for someone a quarter of my age.
I grew up in a gilded cage, unable to spread my wings. My mother never let me have the freedom I craved. Then, when I was beginning to live my life as an independent Angel in Olimpie, I was abducted by the King of the Daemons for my own “safety”.
I worked for him for years, but one day, things changed. After an attack on the city I had come to call my home, I was in a coma for months. When I woke up, new power flowed through my veins.
Aidoneus needed a wife. I needed someone to balance the power before it destroyed me. Hades approached me with a proposal: marriage. As friends. Nothing more.
Resisting the King of the Daemons was a lot more difficult than I had ever bargained for.This book is a complete, stand-alone story that is part of a larger series. “Romancing Aranthium” books are the perfect books for fans of fantasy romance who love sweet love stories, powerful ladies, danger, political intrigue, and epic journeys.
