Here we go!

Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.
Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.
After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.
The bet does more than expose Persephone’s failure as a Goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead growsβ€”and it’s forbidden.

Excerpt from A Touch of Darkness

Hades dealt each of them five cards. Persephone looked at her hand and tried to remember what Hades had said about the different ranks. She laid her cards down, face up and the man did the same.

β€œYou have a pair of queens,” he said. β€œAnd I have a full house.”

β€œSo…you won,” she said.

β€œYes,” he replied, and then claimed his prize immediately. β€œWho are you rebelling against?”

She smiled wryly. β€œMy mother.”

He raised a brow. β€œWhy?”

β€œYou’ll have to win another hand if I’m going to answer.”

So, he dealt another and won again. This time, he didn’t ask the question, just looked at her expectantly.
She sighed. β€œBecause…she made me mad.”

He stared at her, waiting, and she smiled. β€œYou never said the answer had to be detailed.”

His grin matched hers. β€œNoted for the future, I assure you.”

β€œThe future?”

β€œWell, I hope this isn’t the last time we’ll play poker.”

Butterflies erupted in her stomach. She should tell him this was the first and final time she would come to Nevernight.

He dealt again and won. Persephone was getting tired of losing and answering this man’s questions. Why was he so interested in her anyway? Where was that woman he’d been with earlier?

β€œWhy are you angry with your mother?”

She considered this question for a moment, and then said, β€œBecause…she wants me to be something I cannot.” Persephone dropped her gaze to the cards, and then said, β€œI don’t understand why people do this.”

He tilted his head, as if questioning. β€œYou are not enjoying our game?”

β€œI am,” she said. β€œBut…I don’t understand why people play Hades. Why do they want to sell their soul to him?”

β€œThey don’t agree to a game because they want to sell their soul,” he said. β€œThey do it because they think they can win.”

β€œDo they? Win?”

β€œSometimes.”

β€œDoes that anger him, you think?” The question was meant to remain a thought in her head, and yet the words slipped out between her lips.

He smirked, and she could feel it deep in her gut.

β€œDarling, I win either way.”

Her eyes went wide, and her heart stuttered. She stood quickly and his name slipped out of her mouth like a curse.

β€œHades.”
