Lucifer is having a really bad day and when that happens it's probably best to stay well out of his way as heads will roll (or explode or whatever takes his fancy!). Mihail, the only angel who might have enough fire power to kill Lucifer, has dumped an unconscious human female right outside Lucifer’s fortress. Now, Lucifer is a wily chap and certainly no pushover but the temptation to discover just why the woman is there is one he cannot resist. Besides what could one weak mortal do to him, and if she is a trap, then the consequences for her will be severe. Nina, the female in question, awakens with no idea where she is or how she got there but the beautiful male who offers her shelter is a conundrum as one moment he is caring and then the next a much darker side seems to appear. He is charming, charismatic, and yet somehow a danger to Nina and she's determined not to let her life go to Hell again, but is she too late!
Lucifer is the ultimate bad boy and yet, in Her Sinful Angel, we are surprised by his vulnerability. As the original fallen angel, he has suffered atrocities and yet somehow found the strength to rise up and claim his place as the much feared King of Hell. He has feelings for his daughter Erin (who is a fabulous foul mouthed badass heroine) and is in awe of his grandson Dante. Yes it's fair to say that this book showcases his personal growth but he is not weak, no just another tortured hero that Ms Heaton so cruelly loves to play with. Giving him Nina as a heroine allows the reader to see his depths and at times it's quite sad learning just how trapped by his circumstances he really is. Nina, for me, was just a little too trusting far too soon but I think that's just what Lucifer really needed.
Okay, now for the bad part, I really didn't connect much with the first half of the book because nothing really seemed to happen. Both main characters spent far too long being introspective and constantly seemed to be working things out in their heads. Yes, self analysis is all very well but I just wanted something to happen. Luckily, about half way through this story, a fight ensues which is closely followed by a passionate scene and from this point in, it felt much more like the type of book I normally associate with Ms Heaton.
If you enjoy steamy romance with a hero who is more than a little messed up and want action, then this series (Her Angel) is a must read. Good versus evil, but not always in the way we imagine. These books are imaginative, hot, and full of twists and turns with characters you will love.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
A huge recommendation for paranormal lovers but to get the best do read in order starting with Her Dark Angel, you won't regret it!
