About this ebook




These things go hand in hand with my chosen profession.

My brothers and I are known internationally as lords of war -- the most ruthless arms dealers in the world.

Absolutely no one’s safe from us... as long as we are making our next million.

And I only need one person in order to make the ultimate sale.

Persephone is a lovely little raven-haired art forger. 

Model-good looks.

Innocent hazel eyes.

Curves that would tempt the devil himself.

She’s going to make a deal with me.

Even if that deal is made after I kidnap her and threaten her life.

My manner with Penny is brusque, brutal, and demanding.

But her body beckons me like a siren’s call.

She’s shell shocked and afraid of what I might do to her.

My only fear is that once I touch her, I may not be able to stop...

King’s Capture from Wall Street Journal Bestseller Vivian Wood is a dark billionaire retelling of Hades and Persephone. Book one in the King’s Capture duet features heart-pounding action, angsty emotional goodness, and steamy scenes guaranteed to keep you up all night until the very last page.

I enjoyed the first book in this exciting and enticing duet of reads. This book really kicks off Hades and Persephony's story in a very high-energy, high-tension way. I found each of these characters extremely intriguing. Both are wounded and carry heavy emotional baggage and that means you are going to sympathize with them. I enjoyed the simmering chemistry, slowly growing attraction, and their explosive heat that this duo generated. I found the story well written, and it maintained my interest easily. There is a smartly crafted combination of intensity, drama, action, emotion, danger, adventure, suspense, darkness, steam and twists that tangles you in a captivating web and keeps you feeling on edge. As this is book one of two, do be prepared for the looming cliffy and the anxious wait to see how it all ends when the next book releases. This is my forthright, volitional review.

Hades Persephone retelling in a dark romance is probably one of my all time favourite trope and I will never get tired of reading them. Vivian Wood did an amazing job in King's Capture. A dark antihero. A damaged yet strong heroine. Explosive chemistry and sharp storyline. Definitely a very well executed dark romance.King's Capture by Vivian Wood is your next read if you love dark mythology retelling or just dark romantic suspense. . I reviewed an early copy voluntarily

I Love this version of Hades and Persephone. Hades and his brothers are ruthless arms dealers who are going after the man who is their biggest nemesis. Hades only needs one thing, a forger. Persephone is on the run from her ex and working a job she hates because her true passion would give her identity away. She only trusts one person, who unfortunately is the one who leads Hades right to her. Persephone should be all business for Hades, but he can't resist the pull to her and amongst the danger and drama they find passion they never knew existed. They have fled from the Caribbean to Europe to escape her ex, and his arch nemesis, only to have her taken. Hades will do anything to get her back, now that she is his...LOVED this and can't wait for the next book!!
