Events of her past led Suria to give up on the notion of love. Her clientele had their desires sated with the stroke of a whip rather than any sexual interaction with the scarred beauty.
Eros, the son of Aphrodite had bedded the wrong woman one too many times. His latest conquest was the granddaughter of Hades. To appease Hades and save his neck, Eros agrees to be stripped of his immortality and banished from Olympus. He is charged with having a non-believer fall in love with him as well as he with her.
Will Eros succeed in winning the love and trust of the cynical beauty, or will he wind up in servitude to Hades for the remainder of eternity?

I was offered this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own, but when I saw this retelling of the Cupid and Psyche, I had to make time for this book. In the Greek tale, Cupid favorite son of Aphrodite falls for this mortal woman. His mother hates her. He marries her, brings her to this paradise, but never reveals himself to her. She misses her family and wonders if she married beast. Finally she cannot stand it anymore and sheds light on her situation, seeing he’s a god. She runs to Aphrodite who shuns her and sends her on an errand to go kill herself at the river Styx. Persephone in the underworld challenges Aphrodite and helps Psyche. Some stories have her dying. Other stories have her and Cupid living happy ever after. I had to know what this author did with the story.
“When I want you to moan, I’ll ask it of you…but if you ever so much as touch me again without invitation, I’ll make sure I carry these home in my purse,” she growled angrily into his ear.
This was the line of the book that caught my attention. Marcelle is clearly a fighter hear. Eros gets banned from Olympus until he earns the love of a mortal. Hades is the active player, so it’s different again. Cool. Clearly there are differences in the myth and this story already. I was excited to read more. Then Eros stops Suria’s date right away. Suria’s life is not good, and her debt to Hades is making this love story different. I was excited to read this story, and I’d recommend it.

Usually, he was the one dodging the amorous attentions of the females. What did she have that others did not? Why was he so drawn to her?
From the very first time he’d seen her, he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about her. A light came on in the upstairs bedroom and Eros’s mouth went dry when her silhouette appeared against the thin blinds. Stepping deeper into the shadows, he watched through half-lidded eyes as she reached up to move her waterfall of hair away from her neck. Amelia’s hands appeared to work the fastenings of Suria’s dress. Jealousy, an emotion Eros had never experienced, slammed into him with the force of a tornado. He wanted to loosen the material clinging to her curvaceous figure and let his hands slide around to cup her full breasts. Would she be wearing anything underneath?
Mesmerized, he groaned when the dress slipped from her shoulders and slid slowly down her arms. She turned just as the satin slipped free to reveal her breasts blessing Eros with an erotic glimpse of her profile. Her pert nipples were clearly evident against the window shade causing his cock to spring to full attention and strain the fabric of his Armani tuxedo trousers. His mouth went dry. He wanted to suckle those peaks and hear her moan. Eros tried to gain control of his wicked thoughts but lost all hope of that when she released her hair, letting it flow down her back. He ached to feel the feather soft kiss of it spread over his chest and abs.
