When Melody meets Alec, sparks fly—literally. Now he must protect her, but can he protect his heart in process?
Alec Connolly has led a mostly peaceful life since he fell from heaven a century ago. That is, until Melody Fremont pops up on his radar.
Melody has twice as much life force as a normal human, which is like catnip for demons. Now Alec must find a way to protect the spirited bartender, while keeping the vows he made to a woman long dead.
As Alec and Melody draw closer together, will Alec be able to protect her from his past, and himself from falling further than he ever thought he could?
Review: This book is about Alec & Mel, angels & demons & falling in love. It starts with some mystery and action then becomes a story of building a relationship with that hint of action & mystery always there. Then the action/mystery returns with a great twist and a really really sweet ending.
Good humor and some good action, with well written sex that fit into the story rather than just put into the story for the heck of it. It could have used some more action or mystery but for a short story it was a fast moving full book.
I would have liked an epilogue that showed a little bit of the future and a little more backstory on both of them. For the length there was a little back story that was fit nicely into conversations between the characters. The book has a solid foundation to make it into a full book with more action & mystery, but this is a short story that moves right along and has interesting characters that make you want more of them.
My only issue is that for the story taking place in Scotland, I would think that more of the Scottish language would be used and since the characters were from New Zealand that some of that language would have crept into the story. I know the both speak a form of English but for the most part it seemed to be Americanized English.
I would read another story about these characters. It was a clean, easy read that kept me interested & turning the page.
