His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the heavens, eternally damned.
She is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo’s deliverance…and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola’s life-even if he has to sacrifice his own….
First Date: Koldo’s a bad-ass, walking around like he hates everyone and everything. Of course, he’s got reason to have a bad attitude, considering what crappy and abusive parents he has (ooh, his childhood was a seriously hot mess). But the big lug falls hard for fragile, little Nicola, and proceeds to be her champion — whether she wants it or not.
Second Date: To be honest, I’m missing the serious passion I really need on that second date. Without the desire to jump someone’s bones, why bother with that third date? (I kid…sort of.) Both of our main characters are virgins (Nicola was told by her parents she couldn’t have sex because of her heart and Koldo…well, he’s got his reasons.) and, even though they’re falling for each other, no one gets too excited. We can blame Nicola’s heart or their combined innocence or whatever but I want MORE HEAT!
Third Date: This round left me somewhat unsatisfied. Oh, sure, there was consummation (though it was a bit hard to tell since it was over so quickly) and, ultimately we got our HEA but…*sigh*. Overall, it was enjoyable but seemed to be missing that undefinable spark of pure chemistry that can lead to a lasting relationship. Thanks for the dinner and drinks, Koldo, but I’m going to screen your calls from now on.
