Book Description

8 Oct 2013
When it comes to love, sometimes you have to cross the line... Feared by mortals for his inexorable power, and loathed by his fellow Greek gods for the same, Hades rules the Underworld alone. A stark eternity looms before him until he discovers Persephone. Struck by the youthful goddess’ beauty, kindness, and spirit, he must have her. But Hades believes Persephone could never love him, and so he conspires with his powerful brother, Zeus, to take her by force. Persephone too seeks a mate but her possessive mother, the goddess Demeter, frustrates her husband hunting. Then Hades abducts Persephone, tearing her away from the Upperworld she loves to reign with him in the dank depths below. Though outraged, Persephone cannot deny the desire ignited within her by the dark lord’s touch. And even as she hopes that Demeter will unearth her, Persephone aches to surrender to the heat in Hades’ immortal soul.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darkness drawn to the light. 27 Oct 2013
By H. M. Gardner - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this re-imagining of the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone so much!
Persephone was smart and resourceful but craved love and respect.
Hades was handsome, wise and crushingly in love with her.
The story was well written and very humorous in places.
The author kept a good handle on the lingo and all the characters.
And YE GODS the smoldering tension between these two could heat the whole NorthEast this winter!
Thank you to the author for such a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sentence is Marriage! 1 Oct 2013
By Yolanda Renee - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've never studied mythology, but I've always loved the stories that have come from it. My goal when I watch a movie or read a book is to be entertained, taken on a journey, and blown away by the excitement of mystery and romance. I found all that and more in Mina Lobo's book That Fatal Kiss.

Persephone is a beauty, she's also a goddess, Hades is handsome, he's also a loner, which suits his role as the God of the afterlife, but it plays havoc with relationships. In his quest to find a wife, he puts Zeus in a precarious position, give me your daughter Persephone as my wife, or suffer the consequences. Poor Zeus, he's between a rock and a hard place, the powerful Hades or the powerful Demeter, Persephone's mother . Does he even consider the plight of his daughter? Why should he, a woman's feelings didn't count, not then and even today, the struggle continues, but back to all that fun and the drama of fiction!

Is it a love story? Persephone was considering marriage, she just didn't have anyone in mind, and Hades is handsome, and he did choose her, but is it enough? She's not a wilting flower either, and that makes her the perfect foil for a God who thought he could just command his way to love. Would you give up living in the light to exist in the bowels of hell, even if true love were the reward? I mean looks and power aren't everything - especially if marriage is the sentence!

It's a great journey and Mina tells it with skill and finesse! Her love scenes are sizzling and masterful. The quandary of her characters believable and the solution well thought out and extremely diplomatic - considering the warring nature of gods and goddesses!

I highly recommend That Fatal Kiss, it's a must read, and one I'll go back to on those cold and lonely nights when a great love story is what I'm seeking. Well done Mina!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, sexy and a great relationship! 16 Nov 2013
By Lee Cioppa - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not just a sexy and funny retelling of the Greek myth, this is a story about building a relationship on trust, honesty and faith in each other. Far more than many romance novels, this author gets it right in conveying two people who have to learn to be loving with each other despite being afraid of vulnerability and getting hurt - on the epic stage of gods, goddesses, and Hades!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE 22 Oct 2013
By Ashley - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't normally write reviews, but I had to for THAT FATAL KISS.

Absolutely LOVED the book. I couldn't put it down. Mina Lobo's writing is awesome--the detail, the characters, everything was so well-written. I have a small obsession with Hades and Persephone, so I had been dying to get my hands on this for a while and it did not disappoint. I definitely love the Hades and Persephone in Mina's tale, and prefer to think this is what actually went down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal retelling of a Greek myth of love 19 Oct 2013
By Christine Rains - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hades rules the Underworld alone in the darkness. Only one light has ever attracted him. For years, he has watched Persephone and fallen in love from afar. He must have her as his wife. Conspiring with her father Zeus, Hades abducts the beautiful goddess and whisks her away the Underworld. Persephone is a creature of the light. She's goodness and compassion with a hidden wildness and streak of willfulness. She won't submit to Hades so easily even though she feels a powerful pull toward him. Hades struggles to show her how much he loves her, and she doesn't make it any easier on him. Will Persephone fall for the dark lord's charms or be one of the few to escape from the Underworld?

I'm already a fan of Greek mythology, and I love this telling of Hades and Persephone's tale. Even though I knew how it was going to end, the journey was amazing. I was sucked into the story right from the beginning and found it hard to put down my Kindle until the end.

What made this book so great is the characterization. The reader gets to see the gods as they've never been seen before. Hades isn't the cold and forbidding dark demon as some portray him. He's isolated yet yearns for companionship, demanding yet compassionate, and totally hot! I became enchanted by him. He's an Alpha male, but unlike many others in the genre. Persephone can be young and rash, but she's smart, strong, and sympathetic. The perfect complement to Hades. I especially liked her relationships with the other goddesses, particularly Hecate and Athena.

THAT FATAL KISS is a phenomenal debut for Mina Lobo. Her romance sizzles and her worlds are vivid with life. This is a love story I highly recommend.
