Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?
Connor Buchanan can't believe how crazy his fellow vampires are, falling in love. He vows he won't become the next one to give in to a woman. Then, on a mission against the Malcontents Connor witnesses the banishment of Marielle. She has disobeyed orders one too many times and as a result, been cast out of the heavenly host. Now Marielle is being pursued by a demon and must adjust to being human and all that it entails. Plus, she is unable to touch anyone but a vampire because even though she's no longer an angel her touch still has the power to kill. Can Marielle earn her place back to Heaven and can Connor protect her until she's able? Is Connor truly damned or is redemption still possible? But when it comes down to it, will Marielle be able to leave Connor behind? This was wonderful. I loved the introduction of angels and demons into the series, especially all of the trials an angel has to go through to adjust to mortal life. I adored Marielle because she was so sweet and innocent, but she still had a feisty spirit all the same. Connor was my favorite hero of the series so far, because for him it's all about how he believes he's undeserving and damned to Hell due to past wrongs. The redemption that he undergoes is pretty awesome. The romance in this book is hot and sweet both, which is just how I like it. However, the formula is still present and obvious in this book (which is #10 in the series) so I can't quite say I loved it, so much as enjoyed it a lot.
VERDICT: 4/5 Stars
