Savage Impulses by Michelle Hercules

Everyone knows to stay away from the heirs of Olympus Bay. They rule the city through savagery and blood like the heartless assholes they are.

A streak of bad luck puts me on the path of the most ruthless of them all. Hades. The black sheep of the family, his reputation for debauchery and violence precedes him. No wonder he’s the king of Olympus U.

He wants me to pay for a mistake I didn’t intend to make, and I fear refusing him will only end in tragedy. But there are worse fates than being the target of a savage god.

When another ruthless player enters the arena and demands more than I can give, I find myself stuck in the middle of a family war, and Hades emerges as my savior. And my captor.

The longer I stay by his side, the more I realize the man is not what he seems. He’s dark and brutal, but he also possesses a tenderness I didn’t think was possible. That’s his most dangerous weapon. If I’m not careful, I might never want to leave his prison.

Only I can’t indulge in my desires. My family needs me, and if I surrender to Hades completely, I may never see my loved ones again.
