About this Book:

“Combining passion, humor, pulse-pounding action and just plain fun, Gena Showalter’s books are always a refreshing escape!” –New York Times bestselling author Lara AdrianNew York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with another captivating Angels of the Dark tale, as a tormented warrior is brought to his knees by the most delicate of humans…

His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the heavens, eternally damned.

She is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo’s deliverance…and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola’s life-even if he has to sacrifice his own….

    I’ve read the LotU series, the Atlantis series and starting the White Rabbit Chronicles. I can’t wait for the second Angels of the Dark book. The first was great, and I know she’ll have wonderful new ways to surprise me.

    I don’t love this spin-off series as much as the original series (mainly because I’ve been waiting for Kane’s book for a long time while she was writing this series) but I do enjoy it. Gena’s one of my favorite authors

    I adore this series and the LOTU series by Gena…in fact I hope to read Beauty Awakened this weekend. Since being laid off a year ago there are very few books I actually buy I usually just read freebies or ones I win…but this is one I save up to buy!

    Thanks so much!
