Cold. Rich. Dangerous. Billionaire Hades hides a terrible secret behind his wealth. A painful past left him battered and scarred. He’s living on borrowed time until sheltered Persephone enters his life.

He knows what it is to hurt. But the worst pain is to need.

Persephone is only supposed to be a pawn in his game. A bargaining chip. But from the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows she’ll be the one to break him.

He won’t give her up, even if it costs Persephone her heart.

Even if it costs him his life.
