Product Description

Synopsis

When Boston interior designer Kate Markham meets real estate mogul Owen Glendower at a dinner party, sparks fly. Not only is Owen GQ-cover, drop-dead sexy and filthy rich, he has a maddeningly seductive way of knowing intimate details about her. Details that send heat rushing to her cheeks not to mention certain other parts of her body. Swept deliciously off her feet, Kate lets herself fall into a breathtakingly sensual journey she hopes will never end, even when Owen reveals his little secret: he happens to be Hades, ruler of the underworld and the devil himself!Caught in the fiery-sweet grip of a desire so consuming, Kate must choose between her business, her family, her life on Earth, and spending eternity in Hell with Owen. Then, out of the blue, family tragedy strikes, shaking her out of a rapturous trance to face the decision of a lifetime. Will she spend eternity with this devil of her dreams or follow her conscience back to earthly reality?

1.0 out of 5 stars Angst in the underworld 26 Jan 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you buy this book expecting a funny, flirty romance, as suggested by the title and the synopsis, DON'T. It is a lond series of angst filled self absorption seen through the eyes of our 'heroine'. Not one laugh, chuckle or smile filled the pages of this book. No chemistry between Hades and Kate, no real conversations either, we spend the entire time mired in the brain of Kate who hardly seems to hear anything beyond her own biological clock ticking. The entire books seems to be about Kate getting what she wants with minimal effort or personal growth while Hades gets screwed over and dumped. This book gets one star because they don't let you give anything lower.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 31 Aug 2011
By Arec - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I seriously do not even know what to say about this piece of work. It's a rare and special day when you run across a romance novel where the male protagonist is death/devil/Hades. They are personal favorites of mine. So you can imagine I snatched this one up as soon as I saw it. I am glad I only dished out $2 for it.

The plot is as thin as wet tissue and more boring than watching mud dry. Every page was obvious and expected, the obstruction between the protagonists was blaring, and it was just very...bland. I will give the author credit for knowing how to write and tell the story she wants to tell. However, I must deduct points for the lack of creativity. I wanted so much to be wowed or at least enjoy the novel, but instead I felt like this would be a the love story about death and his lady as written by a high school freshmen, still dewy eyed

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical romance, but I liked the bittersweet ending and the mythological tie-in. 26 Mar 2008
By melindeeloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
To Hell with Love had a very interesting premise, Hades the god of the underworld is out to find a loving companion to end the dark loneliness of his immortal existence. Interior designer Kate draws Hades notice when she responds to the question of who would be the perfect man to date and replies that it would be the devil but it would take more than a couple of dates before she'd be willing to give up her soul. But of course Hades who makes his appearance a year later as rich and handsome Owen doesn't do souls, and anyway what he really wants is Kate's heart for all eternity.

Though the premise was great the execution is not typical of your standard romance novel, more time was spent developing Kate and her family than the relationship between Kate and Owen, making the romance between the two not developed enough in the first two thirds of the book to give it a real intensity. In fact Kate spends way too much time dreaming of being with Owen and waiting for his calls and not enough time in his company. When they actually do spend time together, Owen is so omnipotent that their conversations have a very odd feel. Also since Owen does grand gestures but doesn't do a great deal of acting on the emotion that Kate sees in his eyes -- while he also keeps fending off Kate's blatant seduction -- it felt at times that all the love between them was in Kate's head.

As strange as it seems with everything I've said so far, the book did redeem itself in the end. So while I can understand why some reviewers couldn't get past all this, somehow in the last third of the book once Kate and Owen got to the crisis point in their relationship, where he reveals his true identity and wants her to make the choice of loving him at the cost of giving up her life and her family, I really started to finally connect to these two. And since this crisis point also coincided with a family crisis for Kate, the final development of her character and the clarity that brings really added depth to the story. Add to that Owen finally learning the selflessness of love and sacrificing when there was no compromise along with the bittersweetness of his sacrifice and I ended up liking the book. But I have to admit that I did cheat and read the other reviews, so I was prepared when the author didn't succumb and give us the easy typical romance novel happily ever after.

If you don't mind unconventional HEAs and like the mythological tie-in of To Hell with Love, you might want to consider checking out P.C. Cast's books. She has several goddess related works that have a similar bittersweetness if you are looking for something a little out of the mainstream romance norm.

P.C. Cast's Goddess Summoning Series:
Goddess of the Sea (Goddess Summoning, Book 1) (Berkley Sensation)
Goddess of Spring (Goddess Summoning, Book 2)
Goddess of Light (Goddess Summoning, Book 3)
Goddess of the Rose (Goddess Summoning, Book 4)

I haven't read this one but am including it for completeness.
Goddess of Love (Goddess Summoning, Book 5)

5.0 out of 5 stars a truly different read! 13 Dec 2007
By Donna G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'll have to differ from some of the other reviewers here to say that I, for one, loved the very thing that they didn't. For me, Owen's (Hades) gift to Kate was incredibly romantic even if the ending was bittersweet. And there IS a HAE to come - even if it's after Kate's mortal life is over. Seriously, did those other reviewers really think there could be a perfect love between a mortal and a god here on earth?
