This was my first book from the author. The story gets really dark at times, so if this disturbs you, you might want to pass.
Henrik Hercules is the bastard son of a Mafia lord. Everything he does is to prove his loyalty to his father and become a legitimate son. His stepmother, Hera, has been making this difficult for him, constantly making more demands of him. Henrik is a really messed up man. Is one of those characters that you have a hard time accepting. He’s unapologetically cruel and his actions are questionable.
Megara Creon is the daughter of one of the Network families. What she ever wanted was to open her own restaurant. However, she finds herself forcibly married to Henrik. She tries extremely hard to keep her anger and hate towards him, but even her husband’s actions can’t stop her from falling for him. She sees a gentler side of him she can’t ignore.
When I finished the book, I struggled with my rating. I liked the story but couldn’t get past some of Henrik’s actions. The author managed to show Henrik’s human side as well. After all, all he ever wanted was to be recognized. The book is dark with some BDSM elements as well. I really liked the Greek mythology background, it was intriguing!
