About HADES: A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrates his prison and unintentionally starts a riot. It’s easy enough to quell an uprising, but for the first time, Hades is torn between delivering justice — or bestowing mercy — on the beautiful female who could be his salvation…or his undoing. Thanks to her unwitting participation in another angel’s plot to start Armageddon, Cataclysm was kicked out of Heaven and is now a fallen angel in service of Hades’s boss, Azagoth. All she wants is to redeem herself and get back where she belongs. But when she gets trapped in Hades’s prison domain with only the cocky but irresistible Hades to help her, Cat finds that where she belongs might be in the place she least expected…
The thought of living one more day the way he’d lived the last five thousand years made him want to throw up as he prowled the length of his crypt until he swore the soles of his boots cried out for mercy.
Azagoth had left him hours ago with all kinds of assurances that Cat wouldn’t be harshly punished for what she’d done. But Azagoth’s idea of “harsh” was a lot different from Hades’s. Well, not usually, but for Cat, definitely.
Hades just hoped Azagoth hadn’t suspected that anything had gone on between them. Technically, Hades hadn’t gone against Azagoth’s orders, but the Grim Reaper wasn’t a fan of technicalities. And if he did anything to punish Cat for what Hades had done, Hades would fight that bastard until he was too dead to fix.
Snarling, Hades threw his fist into the wall. Never, not in his entire life, had he felt this way about a female. Hell, he hadn’t felt this way about anything. Oh, he’d always been passionate about meting out justice, but this was a different kind of passion. This was an all-consuming desire to be with someone. To be something better for that someone.
He hadn’t known Cat for long, but in their brief time together, he’d shared things he’d always kept private. He’d given comfort and had been comforted. He’d wanted, and he’d been wanted back.
She wants to go back to Heaven, idiot.
Yeah, then there was that. The chances of going back were extremely slim, given that in all of angelic existence, only a handful of fallen angels had been offered the opportunity. But just the fact that she wanted to go was troubling.
Oh, he understood. Who would choose to live in the grim darkness of the underworld when they could flit around in light and luxury? But dammit, Cat was wanted down here. Could he make her see that?
Closing his eyes, he braced his forehead on the cool stone wall he’d just punched. Pain wracked him and not just because he’d broken bones in his hand and they were knitting together with agonizing speed. That pain was nothing compared to the ache in his heart.
He needed to be with Cat, but how? He supposed he could try reasoning with Azagoth. Sometimes the guy wasn’t completely unbending. Especially now that he had Lilliana. She’d leveled him out, had given him a new perspective on life and relationships.
But would it be enough?
Because one thing was certain. If Hades couldn’t have Cat in his life, then Azagoth had saved it for nothing.

I got this copy in exchange for my honest review
Seeing as how Demonica and Lords of Deliverance or both in the top 10 of my favorite paranormal romance series it might come as no surprise I loved this book.
Hades had his morbid twisted humor that I enjoy. I love how he is the Jailor of the Underworld but he still has a sense of humor and seems to see the beauty of things especially after seeing so much that is ugly and having to deal out some nasty punishments.
Cat was a wonderful albeit rather clumsy character. She had a great demeanor and took her punishment in strides as she tries to redeem herself and get back her wings. She seems to concentrate so hard on getting back to heaven where she feels she belongs she is missing the fact that she is making friends and a nice niche where she is stationed being house cleaner for Azagoth and Lilliana. I love the fact that she didn’t hold back her curiosity and that her curiosity and her wanting to right what she accidentally did is what got her in her predicament that led her to becoming entombed with the cocky and wonderful Hades.
Of course the humor and the back and forth banter was some of my favorite parts. Most of the book I found funny. I love Hades sense of humor and I like how Cat could still surprise him. The action was wonderful and it being a novella everything was fast and furious but it packed a great punch.
I think the author does a wonderful job describing all the different setting and characters that it makes everything extremely easy to imagine. Everything from the different tiers, the houses, Hades “hut” to the clothes and the hellhounds breath.
