Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless-and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions, at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he’s never known before.
Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation-or her ultimate damnation?
This is the first in a spin off from Gena Showalter’s Lord’s of the Underworld series. I enjoyed this book and how strong our heroine is. She was subjected to unimaginable abuse and refused to be cowed.
I do love a virgin hero and angel Zacharel is the perfect example. He has closed himself off to love, cold and impersonal he finds himself out of his depth when one tiny human changes his world completely.
There is some spoilers and cross overs with the original series and the author has now said the two series will become one so I advise starting with the LOTU books first
