SSS: Zeveriah, Archduke of Hades Section Six

Wow, what a crazy good week! Sizzling Hot Book Reviews rated Dancing with the Devil 4 hearts, and Night Owl Reviews rated The Magic of Lavender, the first book in the Goddess Connection series, as a Top Pick! I am still over the moon, happy dancin'. I hope you grabbed your free copy of Dancing With the Devil from Amazon this week!

So on to the snippet. In Dancing With the Devil, the heroine's family promised her in marriage to the Archduke of Hades Section Six, Zeveriah. Zev's nervous about winning Lily's heart:


His laid-back demeanor belied the intensity beneath, the furious drive to succeed propelling him through millennia.
I’ll woo her. Yes, ridiculous as it sounded, he would stoop that low, charm the girl into loving him as The Prince had with Persephone.
The Prince had no angelic counterparts to thwart his plan, however. Bodiel had been a thorn in Zev’s side for too long. The Ruling Angel of the Sixth Heaven better stay the hell out of this, or he’d meet his counterpart face to face, sword to sword.

He is a man with a plan, but somehow I don't think it will go all that smoothly for him

Definitely intriguing! Got my copy of Dancing With The Devil - looks like I'll have to bump it to the top of my TBR right away! :)

How fierce. And pretty much anytime you mention a sword, I'm there.

Very intense!

Conflict, check (at least three of them in six sentences--not bad!); romance, check; angels and devils--yes! A lot join on in this setup.

I love these six! So much potential conflict introduced, internal and external. I'm curious to see how he tries to woo her, it doesn't sound like that is his usual thing. :)
Congratulations on your great week and reviews!

CONGRATS on your awesome review Cate!

Loved your six. Definitely want to read more.

Let's see--if devils are fallen angels, I wonder if Lily could get him to rise and Bodiel to fall?

Karyn Good said...

Sword fight! Love it the stooping to be charming. Great six!

Vivien Dean said...

Love all the conflict built into these six. Great job!

Hmmm. Just where could this possibly lead? :-) Great six!

Oh, congratulations on such great reviews! And what an intriguing character (looks good too, hummina hummina)--I like the hint you've got here!

Wow, he sounds pretty determined but there's a lot in his way, it seems.
