You’ve heard it was the pomegranate.
Those six juicy, ruby seeds, staining my lips and fingers. Sealing my fate. Damning me.
Well, maybe so.
But that’s not entirely the truth.

Review – Sizzling Recreation of classic Greek Myth – 5 Stars

If you thought you knew everything about the legend of Persephone and Hades then think again! Samantha Macleod puts a sexy and beautifully crafted new spin on the Greek myth in this delightful short story.

In it Hades is not the evil abductor that most renditions of the legend maintain, and neither is Persephone his unwilling victim. Instead the couple are very much in love with one another and well matched in all respects. The powerful deity Hades is a drop dead gorgeous male who goes out of his way to please his new wife. Moreover Persephone is a strong willed red bloodied female who rails against the expectations put on her by her mother Demeter and the powerful gods and goddesses who govern.

The read contains a number of erotic and playful scenes, whilst still being faithful to the myth and the fateful role the pomegranate seeds play a key  in the couple’s future.

LOVE re-interpretations of ancient myths and legends, particularly ones that question our understanding of who is the bad guy – life is not always that clear cut! This erotic romance, which is can be devoured in one sitting, is up there amongst the best.
