OVER TWO MILLION BOOKS SOLD!
------------------
Sheltered Persephone, Goddess of Spring, never gets to do anything-- thanks to the suffocating love of her mother, Demeter. Sephie is being carefully groomed to follow in the footsteps of the two "virgin" goddesses, Athena and Artemis, and while they sure do have a lot of fun together, she longs for something deeper--and darker. When Aidon, the God of the Underworld--generally known as Hades--appears in his chariot to claim Persephone for his bride, the young goddess gets more than she wished for.

Held captive in the Underworld, she suddenly longs to return to the safety and security of her mother's protection, but the dark and commanding Aidon binds her to him, claiming her bit by glorious bit as his own. Her coming of age is one of sexual awakening as she learns the bondage her new master imposes fulfills her darkest desires. Persephone finds herself submitting to and obeying Aidon's command and discovers being taken and consumed in the heat of passion by a man--a god--is what she was truly made for. Persephone can't deny her own nature, or her growing feelings for Aidon, as she submits to his domination and surrenders as his wife and prepares to rule as his Queen.

As she finally admits her own feelings, Persephone faces the looming specter of her history, which threatens to shatter the newly formed bonds between the couple. She must now face not only her past, but her present, and her future--no longer only the Goddess of Spring, but also as the wife of Aidon and Queen of the Underworld--and the choices she will be forced to make will change the world forever.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - . .
Selena Kitt does a good job with the Greek myth, though her interpretations of the deities occasionally vary quite a bit from their original depictions in antiquity. She...nicely blends myths together to keep up a constant storyline, and the romance is heated with the occasional flavor of light BDSM. This story has a nice setting and is especially fun for fans of mythology.

Flaming, scorching, and sizzling are just a few of the adjectives to describe this story. Tingling and pulsating are a few other words the reader will feel as Aidon takes Persephone on a journey of sexual ecstasy. I was captivated by every page and consumed by every word. This is story no one should miss.

The Surrender of Persephone provides us with a glimpse into a fascinating new underworld that leaves us panting for more. Selena Kitt mostly follows the story line of Greek Mythology, and to do so may ultimately expose more readers to both genre of Greek Myth-- and bondage. I'd love to see more Greek Mythology stories by Ms Kitt as they are written with an attention to detail and have captivating settings.

Excessica - Patrice .
Each encounter between Persephone and Aidon is lavishly lurid. Their exploits explode throughout the realm of the dead. This dark place becomes Sephie's new playground and it's interesting to watch her blossom into womanhood under Aidon's dark mastery as she accepts her role as his wife and equal. Be warned. The sexual escapades are explicitly intense, equipped with instruments and acts to test your knowledge and comfort zone. I was thankful this pair falls deeply in love.

Surrender of Persephone 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 150 reviews.

I bought this because I have studied the Persephone myth extensively in several English courses in college, and I was intrigued by an erotica based around said myth. I wasn't expecting much, given my past experiences with erotica; most I have seen tend to be juvenile, poorly written, and focus more on generic body parts than on creating a powerful scene as a whole. This, however, totally knocked my socks off. Not only is it steamy, with plenty of truly well-written sex scenes that are far more that just heaving and thrusting, but the characters are well-thought-out and multi-dimensional. The descriptions of the setting and world are spectacular, and the universe is peopled with numerous secondary characters along with the main ones, adding depth. This author has talent and has brought it to bear in this work. I found it truly enjoyable. Best of all, it isn't one of those 10 page quickie things they sell on here so often...this is a full-length book!

I have always loved Greek mythology perhaps for the eroticism that naturally exist in them, and so to no surprised, I was thrilled to read Selena Kitt's interpretation of a classic story that supplied all the details my imagination implied. This book is classified as erotica, more specifically BDSM, so I would recommend that if this is not your cup of tea, perhaps this is not the book for you. However, speaking to those who enjoy a good spanking or two...this book is a very satisfying read and highly recommended!

No character development. No real story. This book had so much potential but failed miserably. Hades was a was not the strong, arrogant God that hid a deep personal torment like I always imagined but instead was a wuss and a fool. Persephone was gave into him without even putting up a fight. The sex was average but with no tension or passion between the two it fell flat. I give it 4 yawns.

I do know the original Greek story, but this was the sexed up version, and yes there was a lot of sex, a lot. I hate to say there was too much sex, but to me there was and that is saying a lot.... ;( If you enjoy BDSM you might get a few new ideas about what to do, but other than that, it is a Greek myth done in a new light.

Blew me away! I could not stop reading this novel! Excellent plot, stayed to the classic myth of Hades and Persephone, including every character introduced and played. I like how this author takes concepts and plays them all out! This novel is very well wrote! I gave a copy to my sister, who enjoys this novel so much, she re-reads it on her spare time away from work! Excellent Erotic Novel! Every sex scene is perfect and has complete meaning behind it each time, where you can follow in and not loose what is happening in the scenes! Enticing descriptions always being used, who couldn't like this kind of erotic novel? Wonderful novel! Definitely a B.D.S.M. erotic novel, but uniquely done by a classic greek myth! I suggest readers to read this, because I am NOT disappointed at all in buying and reading this!

I reread this every time I'm in the mood for good erotica that is dark, twisted, and really arousing.

Fast read. Dark, sexy, entertaining. Makes the idea of Hell exciting.....as long as Aidon was there.
