An angel without a mission, Apollyon lives trapped in Hell guarding the bottomless pit. Surrounded by endless darkness, he longs to fly free on Earth once more but his master hasn’t called him in centuries. When the call finally comes, it’s to serve a new master, a beautiful woman he has often watched over, a woman who has always captivated him.
Serenity is shocked when a gorgeous black-winged angel shows up in her city of Paris claiming that she called him when she was only casting a simple vengeance spell. He’s no other than the angel of death! When Apollyon offers to obey her and help her have revenge on her cheating ex-boyfriend, she can’t resist the temptation, but can she resist him? Can an angel as dark as Apollyon ever fall for a mortal woman like her?
Their charade as lovers quickly becomes reality when one dance leads to another and Apollyon proves that he’s as sinful as he looks. His sensual and hungry touch brings Serenity back to life, freeing her from the hurt of being betrayed and reigniting her passion, but she can’t ignore her growing fear. Lost in their moment together, Apollyon realises that there is a reason he heard her call—he’s in love with her.
But will Serenity see past the wings and believe that Apollyon returns her feelings and won’t hurt her? When her ex-boyfriend asks her to forgive him and be with him again, will she take the easy route or will she find the courage to fly away with her dark angel?
Dark, passionate and erotic, Her Dark Angel is a tale of intense desire and deepest forbidden love guaranteed to get your heart racing.
Sweet heaven above that is a gorgeous cover! C'mon, am I wrong?
So.... this blurb is way too long. And way too informative. About the only thing it leaves out is that Serenity is a witch. One with absolutely no imagination for vengeance. Girl's got the angel of the Apocalypse swearing to do her bidding and the best she can come up with is nothing more than what any red blooded mortal male could do.
Apollyon was a good character. The stuff fantasies are made of. I was most tickled when other women would proposition him and he responded along the lines of what the hell would I want with you. In a far more respectful way of course.
Some things are just too far-fetched though. Trying to make your ex jealous by following him to a strip club and making out in front of him... Really? If it were a real man, I doubt he would have cared. Maybe that's just me. My husband disagrees.
And 'forbidden love'? Maybe if this were a classic angel we were speaking of. Apollyon is anything but. He doesn't answer to God. He just works for the guy. Uh huh.
The solution to their problem was too easily solved. Gah! again.
Now after all that gibber jabber would you believe that I actually liked the story?
I did. =)
