The King of Demons and the Devil’s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for her… until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen—a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.
He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.
Liora is a witch with a bad reputation and an obsession with fighting demons. A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeus’s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.
Caught up in a tempest of danger and soul-searing passion, can they survive against the odds and seize their forever after?
As the Devil's right hand man, he's about as close to his enemy as he can get, so when his master, the Devil commands the dark angel Asmodeus to bring the witch Liora to him, Asmodeus fully intends to fulfill the Devil's wish. Until he meets Liora himself.
Asmodeus isn't a good guy. He REALLY isn't, he's the Devil's servant, and it's a job he seems to relish. From the very beginning I didn't know if I was going to see him as anything other than someone who should have been a villain. Sent by his master to retrieve a specific woman, Asmodeus isn't in the human realm for five minutes before he starts wanting to kill, maim and cause chaos. He seems impenetrable and I found myself thinking "Unless the heroine is a serial killer, I don't see how this is going to work. No woman with a soul is just going to accept him as he is!" However, having Asmodeus start at the bottom of the "Hero-Meter" made for a very interesting book. Watching Asmodeus as he experiences normal human feelings from the minute he meets Liora was very revealing. He wasn't pure evil like I had thought, but he sure is caught between a rock and... Well a very hot place.
Liora has guts, from the first moment she shows no fear of Asmodeus even though she knows what he is and what he's in the mortal realm for. She was an amazing match for Asmodeus! She shows him that he can have a balance of both good and bad. Liora herself is a playful mix of both, she is kind, caring and understanding but at the same time she can give as good as she gets. She's not all talk and no action, in fact she's more of an "actions speak louder than words" woman which was great.
The chemistry between Asmodeus and Liora is scorching hot, right from the beginning they have such and intense attraction to one another and I for one loved that Liora didn't deny it or play games with Asmodeus. She did make sure he was comfortable with her every time they were together which is quite the role reversal but it was done so well that instead of being ridiculous, it was erotic.
Her Wicked Angel is a dark, erotic paranormal romance that doesn't waste time with coy games or useless scenes, it's a non stop, action packed story that didn't let me put it down until I was dead tired and that my friends is a book worth reading. Twice.
I've never read the previous books in the Her Angel series by author Felicity Heaton but Her Wicked Angel can be read as a standalone book without any major spoilers.
