Neon Gods (Dark Olympus, #1) by Katee Robert
He was meant to be a fabled figure. But as soon as I crossed the Styx and surrendered to his dark charms… he was mine, without a doubt.
Persephone Dimitriou aspires to leave Olympia’s ultra-modern city and establish a new life away from the Thirteen Houses’ backstabbing politics. However, when her mother surprises her with an engagement to Zeus, the terrifying force hiding beneath the glittering city’s dark exterior, all of that is snatched away from her!
When Persephone is out of alternatives, she heads to the forbidden undercity and strikes a devil’s bargain with a guy she once believed a myth… a man who awakens her to a world she never knew existed.
Hades has spent the majority of his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of walking out of the shadows any time soon. The only reason for him to aid her is if Persephone can provide him a little piece of the revenge he’s been yearning for years—at a price. Hades, on the other hand, has become fond of Persephone after a series of sleepless nights spent entwined with her…
As sinful as it is sweet: A modern version of Hades and Persephone
The Crown of Gilded Bones (Blood and Ash, #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
As both the victim and survivor, she’s been through it all…
Until she met Prince Casteel, Poppy had no idea she’d fall in love so deeply. First, they have to rescue his brother and discover her own happiness. It’s a risky assignment that could have far-reaching effects that neither of them had anticipated. He has been chosen and blessed since Poppy is a chosen one. In truth, Atlantis’ actual king. There’s blood on her hands and feet from the King of Gods. She is entitled to the throne and the kingdom.
The antagonist and the combatant…
Even though Poppy has always been content with being a solitary person who doesn’t want to interfere with the lives of others, she must now decide whether to give up her birthright or take the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. A long-forgotten force has emerged as the kingdoms’ terrible misdeeds and blood-drenched secrets finally come to light. Furthermore, they will stop at nothing to prevent Poppy from ever wearing the crown.
A soul partner, a companion, and a friend…
Atlantia’s biggest threat is the Queen of Blood and Ash, who has been waiting for hundreds of years to carry out her own plans in the far west. It’s time for Casteel and Poppy to ponder the impossible: waking the King himself from his slumber in the Land of the Gods. Poppy and Casteel are about to find out just how far they will go for their people—and for each other—as stunning secrets and the harshest betrayals emerge as foes emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have battled for.
And today she’ll be crowned Queen of the United Kingdom.
A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire (Blood and Ash, #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Even the man with whom Poppy was beginning to fall in love is a sham. She has no idea who she is without the Maiden’s veil as she is thrust into the midst of those who regard her as a symbol of a terrible country. But she does know that nothing is as hazardous to her as him. The Enemy Within. Atlantean Prince. He wants her to fight him, and she’s more than glad to comply with that one request. There is no way he will ever be able to have her.
It’s up to you.
Casteel Da’Neer has a plethora of monikers and guises. His deceptions are as enticing as his hypnotic gaze. His truths are as enticing as his snarling. He’s a conman, and Poppy knows it. To accomplish his ambitions, he needs her to be alive and well. To find her brother Ian and see if he has become a soulless Ascended is the only way she can gain what she desires. It’s riskier to work with Casteel than against him. With each exhalation, he continues to entice her with the promise of all she’s ever wanted. The plans of Casteel are well-known. Unimaginable pleasures and pains. Plans that will challenge her preconceived notions about herself—and about him. Plans that could connect their lives in ways neither kingdom is prepared for. Her recklessness and hunger make it impossible for her to resist the temptation.
A Shocking Revelation…
Atlantia, on the other hand, is in a state of instability as it awaits the return of its Prince. It’s becoming more and more clear that war is brewing, and Poppy is at the epicenter of it all. A word from the King will be delivered through her. The Descenters are out to get her. Wormwood is becoming more erratic as time goes on. As her powers to perceive pain and emotion increase and strengthen, the Atlantians come to dread and loathe her. The blood-soaked crimes of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth buried are at play here. However, if the earth begins to tremble and the heavens begin to bleed, it may be too late.
The Fall of Troy (The Odyssey Duet, #1) by Rebecca Sharp
Epic love story featuring a forbidden romance between two former foes from New York Times bestselling author Dr. Rebecca Sharp…
Angry love. Love has no sight.
Loving someone makes you envious and resentful.
Léo Baudin was another one of my nemeses. This is my new art teacher! My adversary.
This is not the reason I relocated to Rhode Island. When I realized how much damage and betrayal I’d done to the Troian Milanovic I’d left behind, I decided to start over somewhere new.
But I couldn’t because Professor Baudin forbade it.
Cold. Caustic. Captivating. Instead of simply pressing my buttons, he did more.
Aristocratic French asshole’s indifference sneer lighted them all up.
But the more I despised him, the more I craved him. You’d either win or lose with him in your corner. There was no room for ambiguity.
It would be a battle to get him.
In response, I retaliated. That’s why I was Troy, and he was the wooden horse, which was full of frightening mysteries I didn’t know about.
Because I was the one who brought him into my home, I didn’t realize he was someone else. And in the dead of night, he attacked my physical and mental well-being, as well as my emotional well-being.
Even though the first may be a myth, the history books would demonstrate that Troy’s fall would be accompanied by the loss of her whole populace.
The Odyssey Duet begins with The Fall of Troy, the first book.
