As the owner of a string of successful nightclubs all over the world, Zerach can have any woman--except for his assistant Isadora O’Donnell. First off, Isadora isn't a one-night-stand kind of girl, and second, her dominating godparents don't approve of him. There's also the fact that he is an archangel with a mission to protect humans from demons, something Isadora can never find out about.

Isadora secretly longs for Zerach’s attention but her scarred body and his playboy ways keep her from acting on her feelings. With her only family on the brink of bankruptcy, she’s determined to help them, even if it means trying to forget Zerach and marrying the womanizing Jake, a man she’ll never love.

Zerach tries to keep Isadora at arm's length, but when a demon starts stalking her, Zerach will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. But protecting her could cost him his wings.

In the start of a brand new series, we have a group of archangels policing demons and sending them to their damned reward. In order to do this on the mortal plain, they blend in with humanity by adopting human identities with normal jobs and the lives that entails. In fact, they don't shy from publicity (although not as angels).

For me this book was a paradox. In actuality it was a fairly steamy novel, but with the feel of a much sweeter book. I don't know if it was the angel aspect, although I have read some scorching angel reads, or the innate purity of the heroine, Isodora. It was the aforementioned purity that causes all the trouble for our divine couple. It seems demons just love to get there hands on "good" people. While Isadora is at her core a truly good woman, she isn't really saint like or someone you would see and go "Wow, she's righteous!", she was pretty normal. She acknowledged her lust for her boss, she just refused to act on it. (for a while) *snort*

While this is not a new theme, it is still a fun, lovely take on the angel craze. I was a bit surprised at what Zerach had to do in order to bond with Isadora, and I'll just leave that little teaser hanging. No spoilers here! I also was intrigued by the relationship between the brother angels. It was one of my favorite elements of the book, and I am absolutely DYING to know what's up with Gabriel. There are just numerous reasons to recommend this book, but the biggest is the smile factor. It did make me feel good and it did leave me a with a smile. That's all you can ask. Job well done, brava.

Ms. Missy Jane is the alter ego of a Texas mother of four who has been married to the same wonderful man for over sixteen years. A few years ago Missy finished reading a book by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory, titled The Outstretched Shadow, and thought -Now, what if? -and a monster was created. Missy now spends most of her time lost in worlds of her own making alternately loving and hating such creatures as vampires, shape-shifters and gargoyles (to
name a few). When not writing, she spends her time reading, taking photos of her four beautiful daughters and training her husband to believe she's always right.

Looks good! I love the angels and demons warfare stuff and the element of a nice girl and a warrior angel sounds great.
