Fifth Commander of the Echelon, the highest order of angels in Heaven and those responsible for hunting demons, he will allow nothing to stand in the way of fulfilling the mission he began close to a century ago so he can finally return to his home. On the verge of securing the half-breed he has been hunting, he can almost taste victory—until a sassy demoness struts into his life, awakening wicked needs and forbidden hungers that will test him to his limit.
When their mission brings them on a collision course, can they fight the fierce heat of the passion that blazes between them to claim a victory for their side or will it burn their resistance to ashes and set their hearts on fire with a love both forbidden and eternal?
So here we get to meet Fifth Commander of the Echelon (no name but a certain someone sure likes to call him Rey!) and he is an elite Angel with incredible powers only fools would cross. Charged with finding a rare half breed young woman, he keeps getting one upped by a particularly pretty but infuriating Demoness.
Asteria has one last chance to prove her worth to her master and trust me failure is most definitely not an option! How hard can it be to track and tag a half breed who has no idea just what she is? Slight problem though as there's competition in the very handsome form of a rather aloof Angel but Asteria senses he might not be as cold as he pretends.
Hey, who am I kidding? That cool drink of water running around with angelic wings has a fire inside him that Asteria ignites but it's an unholy alliance that's forbidden. Caught between a rock and a hard place, it's getting hotter by the minute and then of course there's the tiny issue of Asteria's demise if she doesn't deliver. Oh yes, when Ms Heaton decides to torment her characters, she does it in the most outrageous style!
Awakened by a Demoness was up and running from the first page! I loved this couple; from Asteria's sassy style to the mark on the Angels wrist that was truly quite a scary issue. Now add in the thoughts running through the big guy’s head and I'm laughing as our poor angelic guy struggles wondering if his name might be Silly!
See there's never a dull moment here and I've no wish to spoil the fun so really can't say too much more. What I will say is this is possibly the sexiest book in this series, just hot, hot, hot. I was surprised by the ending, but then thought about it and yes, I can see why it ends that way, but I'm sorry it felt a little abrupt and I wanted perhaps just another page or so.
I'm guessing the next story was bugging Ms Heaton’s muse so time to leave these characters to enjoy the start of their new life together.
I was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
