Her Dark Angel by Felicity Heaton

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.

Her Dark Angel was my first introduction to Felicity Heaton. It all started when I noticed that one of my Book Blogging Buddies reviewed one of her books. Since I never turn down a recommendation, even if it’s only in the form of a review, I decided to check her books out. Lucky me, Felicity had quite a few of her books offered as freebies. Who am I to turn down free? Even though this book wasn’t among the free offerings, it was bargain priced, so I decided to pick it up too. Needless to say, this is one of a few that I will be reviewing in the next couple of weeks. Given the fact that a lot of them, like this one, are novellas, I’m going through the offerings fairly quickly. 😉

Her Dark Angel opens in Hell with Apollyon musing over all the reasons why he will never fall in love, especially with a human. Bet you can’t guess what happens next? LOL!

Even though the inevitable happens, it’s not always the outcome, but the journey. Her Dark Angel is intense and full of passion but also tenderness. The characters were easy to have compassion for. I liked both Apollyon  and Serenity. If I had one complaint, it would be that I wanted more, but that’s the nature of a novella. Since this is part of a series I’m hoping that the next book not only introduces new characters but also continues their story. Felicity Heaton’s Her Angel Series is one that I will definitely be keeping my eye on.
