COVER REVEAL: A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair

Dear book-lovers,

It’s time for another book cover reveal, this time I’m featuring the first book in a new adult romance of mythology retelling series, so here is the beautiful cover for A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair.


This cover makes me think that this could be a steamy, intensive and dangerous story of forbidden love.

TouchofDarknessName: A Touch of Darkness
Author: Scarlett St. Clair
Series: Hades & Persephone #1
Publication date: April 2019
Genres: Adult, Mythology, Retelling, Romance


Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.

Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.

After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.

The bet does more than expose Persephone’s failure as a Goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows—and it’s forbidden.
