Review + Giveaway: For the Love of Hades (Loves of Olympus, #2) by Sasha Summers

Title: For the Love of Hades
Series: Loves of Olympus
Author: Sasha Summers
Genre: Romantic Fantasy/
            Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press
Cover Artist: Jeannie Ruesch
Hades, God of Death, has no heart. Persephone is determined to prove otherwise…

Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, has no patience for living things or his Olympian brethren. His purpose is order, administering justice to those who enter his realm, and keeping the balance decreed by the Fates. Meeting Persephone sways his focus, her gentle sweetness threatening his control. But he will not be tempted.

Poseidon’s scheming wreaks havoc upon Persephone. Hades has no choice – he must rescue her.

Hades awakens something within the Goddess Persephone. She feels no fear from his brooding presence. In truth, she’s never felt so alive. Every stolen moment together only confirms her instinct: he is meant to be hers. Such a powerful union suit will face opposition – from Olympus, her troubled betrothed, the Fates, even Hades himself – but she is determined to win his heart.


Although I haven’t yet read the first book, Medusa, A Love Story, I was still instantaneously entrenched in the world the author created. This is the stunningly beautiful love story of Hades and Persephone. I enjoyed this well written tale about these two mythological characters. The flirtation, tension and emotional intensity fueled the natural progression of their attraction, but the author balanced it perfectly with their obligation to fulfill the duties assigned by the Fates. 

Ms. Summers combined magnificent characters and dialogue – then paced it perfectly.

Author Bio

Sasha Summers is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, and travel. It's no surprise that her books visit times past, set in places rich with legends and myth. Her first play, 'Greek Gods and Goddesses' (original title, right?), was written for her Girl Scout troupe. 

She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive. 

Sasha is an active member of RWA and several Texas Chapters. A self-proclaimed movie-addict, she is full of all sorts of useless movie tidbits and trivia.

  Here is Book One of the Loves of Olympus - Just in case you are as curious as I am...


Title: Medusa, A Love Story
Series: Loves of Olympus
Author: Sasha Summers
Genre: Romantic Fantasy/
            Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press
Cover Artist: Jeannie Ruesch

It's said love can change a person. Medusa wasn't always a monster...

Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She's no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves... and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.

Ariston goes to war with a full heart... and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.

Poseidon will use Greece's war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.
