Archangel Camael must never fall for a woman. If he does, he’ll lose his angelic powers, and he will age like a human. Protecting humans from evil is paramount and has meant periodically reinventing his identity to avoid rousing suspicion. But as his desire grows for his secretary, Eleanor, duty feels more like a burden, because he can’t imagine starting a new life without her.
He can never fall in love.
A force of evil is wreaking havoc and Cam and his Archangel brothers scramble to determine and thwart the cause. The key lies in Eleanor’s tormenting memories, but if they push her too hard, she might snap. Cam must walk the delicate line between protecting Eleanor, appeasing his brothers, and saving the world.
Funny quote: "Hey that was only the one time, and you promised not to keep bringing it up.”
“One time?” Cam asked as he walked in. “You’re the reason a clan of immortal Archangels who don’t need to actually eat all keep fire extinguishers in our kitchens.”
“And smoke alarms throughout our homes,” Uri added.
“Whatever,” Sel said as he rolled his eyes. “They came with the houses.”
If you are looking for a love story back dropped by archangels fighting demons this is a book for you. This is the third book in the series though it can be read as a stand alone. There was no having to get up to speed as often happens in series when you read them out of order. The link between them is that if they fall in love they can no longer be an Archangel and must fall. Even with the dark background story most of the love story is a welcome lightening of the story. The background story is all about angels, archangels and the battle against evil. The author introduced some of the theology of angels in a easy to read manner. For example her talking of Watchers and whether or not they are supposed to act on what they see or just observe is something people interested in angels could argue about for years. Her Watchers appear to be the same as a guardian angel.
I am looking forward to going back and reading the first two books, as well as reading the future books in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a love story involving angels or one with a very low heat rating. There is more than just kissing but it is not very graphic. This book would be acceptable for YA readers up to senior citizens.
Missy Jane is the alter ego of a married mother of four who was born and raised in Texas. She spends most of her time lost in worlds of her own making, alternately loving and hating such creatures as vampires, shape-shifters, sexy Archangels, and gargoyles (to name a few). When not writing, she spends her time reading, taking photos of her beautiful daughters and training her husband to believe she's always right.
