Surrender in the Dark - Silvia Violet My review on The Romance Reviews

Did you ever find Persephone abducted by Hades a hot and romantic Greek mythology? I did. In SURRENDER IN THE DARK, Ms. Violet captures this essence and turns up the heat with her sexy twist.

Underworld King Radek sets his sights on the virginal and innocent Upperworld Princess Nia. Dominant Radek is one of the old races who feeds off of emotions, particularly lust, pain, and fear. His harem of exotic females pale in comparison to Nia's submissive responses.

To steal Nia from her mother would cause a war and breaking of truce between the two worlds. Undeterred, Radek finds a loophole and traps Nia into his dominant embrace. Captured slavery themes always do it for me, especially with sexy dominants like Radek. The fact that Nia is a natural submissive who doesn't deny it only enhances my enjoyment.

The world Ms. Violet builds is a bit more complex than just a capture theme. There is a distinct set up hinting of an upcoming war of the worlds. As the first story in this series, I found it to be slightly ominous in the prophecies and it peaked my interest. The story resolved a little too neatly for me, but I think most people would be happy with this happily ever after. Personally, I'd like to read more about how Radek will punish and torment Nia. He's a dominant I'd be willing to submit to – in dark or light. I recommend this book to romantics who enjoy their kink with sweetness.
