Garden of Eden | Hellie Heat
The Elysian Chronicles #1
Release Date: October 2nd, 2020
In a world where homosexuality is considered punishable by death, Micah Veyhl has resigned himself to a life of squalor in the underground city of Tartarus.
Armed with a complex power he barely understands, Micah lives only for himself, removed from the fight of the so-called Resistance movement and the impending war against President Axel Tovar and the esteemed and noble government.
But a chance and erotic encounter with a deeply enigmatic Eden Voss awakens a passion within Micah…one that he thought to have vanished for good. A dangerous passion: one that could just get him killed.
Garden of Eden is a dystopian romance with dark themes that include graphic depictions of violence, torture, human trafficking, police brutality, sexual assault and depictions of rape/non-consensual sexual situations.
Though it does not end on a cliffhanger, it is the first in a series that will have a HEA…eventually.
“Well, how lucky am I to be allowed some of your attention for the night?” Micah leaned back, assessing Eden’s hard body, all wrapped in leather. He looked undeniably handsome.
Eden glanced up at him, almost shyly, before his eyes widened. Slowly, he reached out, allowing his hand to trace the scab that had formed on Micah’s lip, the bruises that lined his jaw. “What happened?” Micah felt himself flush, pulling quickly from Eden’s grasp.
“It’s nothing. One of the hazards of home.”
Eden’s sharp blue eyes narrowed. “It doesn’t look like nothing.”
“I said it’s nothing,” Micah said flatly. “Drop it, will you?”
Eden’s hands balled into fists. “If someone hurt you —”
“I can take care of myself,” Micah snapped. “I told you that the last time we met.”
“You did,” Eden conceded.
“Does it ruin your image of me?” Micah asked, quirking a brow. “Am I less appealing to you now that the goods have been damaged?”
Eden’s cheeks flared pink. “Nothing could do that. You’re all I’ve been thinking about since the last time.”
