Things just keep getting better in this series…wait, is it just me or are six books not enough to wrap up this series?
Oh the blurb: When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart and lose her inhibitions, she’s unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path. Torn between them, she doesn’t know which to choose—or what kind of dire consequences could follow. There’s Duke ( the one who gets under her skin, and doesn’t say much) and then there’s G.B (Mr. Handsome with the voice of an Angel)
Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil—literally. As yet another soul is unwittingly caught in the battle between him and the demon Devina, his fixation on an innocent trapped in Hell threatens to sidetrack him from his sacred duty…. Can good still prevail if true love makes a savior weak? And will a woman’s future be the key, or the curse, for all of humanity? Only time, and hearts, will tell.
There was a steady pace to this and you get to know how thick things are because the war is almost over and with the Angels ahead, the need to clinch the final win and sink Devina has everyone on edge…and this is where Jim messes up (or so everyone thinks) and he trades one win for Sissy.
Anyone remember her? Sissy Barten, the virgin who was taken by Devina to guard her mirror.
Well, Jim gets what he asks for and that does not go down well in Heaven, and Nigel, the Archangel after his run in with Jim, decides to get out of the game, literally and:
The pressure on winning was riding high on this and Devina for once was a little off her game, and my Adrian made me smile with this reaction:
You were channeling the role of cray-cray-never-was-girlfriend and I was negotiating with my stomach to make sure all that toast from breakfast stayed put.
My apologies to those who are stickler for rules, I had to skip ahead to Possession, because I can’t seem to get a copy of Rapture (and no, don’t tell me to get an ebook, I want to save the collection to my library, so I can always read about angels and Devina, who knew she’d be such a badass! One against a whole team of angels and she’s a boss!).
On love; the chemistry between Duke and Cait was spontaneous, and it was great how Adrian helped Sissy make some sense of what happened to her, plus all the clothes, well, he’s got charm and so I’ll sign out with some Adrian (when Jim’s about to say that his day was awful and he was only looking forward to Sissy):
Adrian finished things for him. “Me of course. And I’m really touched- you’re so awesome like that. You bring me chocolates? Flowers?”
