Genre: Paranormal Romance/Erotica

Pubilshed: August 28th 2010

“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.”

Her Dark Angel is a sexy and steamy novella about a woman out for revenge and her personal angel of revenge.

Apollyon is an angel damned to wait from his master to command him. Unlike his fellow angels and warriors he hasn´t set foot on earth for centuries – until one day he hears a call. A call that summuns him to the side of his new master. His new master however is a beauiful yet devasted woman set on revenge. Cheated on by her ex-boyfriend and left for someone younger, she only wants retribution.

The attraction between Apollyon and Serenity is instantly in both sides, yet both struggle with to admit them. Serenity fears to fall in love with an angel who is bound to leave her as soon as theor agreement is fulfilled while Apollyon is unsure if the beautiful woman that has captivated him long before from the distance can accept the fact that he is an angel.

The story is a little too short to draw a very complex worldbuilding or to write a complex story, so if your looking for something intricate and multi-layered like in Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs or Stacia Kane´s world, you might be slightly disappointed. The story about the cheating ex-boyfriend was resolved rather quickly.

If you´re looking of delicious, hot story with two likeable characters and well, a lot of steamy sex scenes, than “Her Dark Angel” is right up your alley. I was entertained with this story and I´m really planning to read the next installment in the series, “Her Fallen Angel”.

3.5 out of 5 points for “Her Dark Angel”!

Hey Christine, great review! But I do prefer my world-building to be one of the strong points, and for demons like Apollyon to be more badass ;-) lol Still, sounds interesting :-)
