My Rating: 5 stars


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….

My Review: 

Koldo is the ultimate tortured hero, having suffered extreme abuse at the hands of those who should have protected him.  What I loved most about this book was how effortless the romance is between Nicola and Koldo. They compliment each other and there is no strife and miscommunication between them.

This book is a different direction for the author, it’s not heavy on the sex scenes and its theme of positivity and faith is different. A lot of fans were unhappy with this change in the author’s writing style but I quite like the change.
