Cast out of Heaven and now the king of Hell, Lucifer is a powerful fallen angel warrior with a heart as cold as ice and soul as black as the bottomless pit. For millennia, he has ruled his realm with an iron fist as he plots the demise of his ancient enemies. When one of those enemies dumps an unconscious mortal female in the courtyard of his fortress and leaves her there, Lucifer finds himself entranced by the beguiling beauty and tempted beyond all reason. But is the enchanting Nina an innocent pawn in the eternal game or part of a plot against him?
I have a couple of favourite locales when it comes to Paranormal Romance; New Orleans for obvious reasons, and Hell, because the fiery pit of torment just shouts ACTION, and I love me some good vs. evil battles. Another fun thing about this particular setting is that anything goes, and Felicity Heaton brought it with the Devil’s version of paradise along with the other not so pleasant aspects of the underworld. The odds of finding one’s soulmate in such a place are as likely as a snowball’s chance in yeah—Hell, and yet that’s exactly what happens to Lucifer & Nina.
This book can be read as a stand-alone, but Veiron, Erin & Dante do show up, so having some familiarity with HER DEMONIC ANGEL will make you appreciate their presence more, and it’ll be easier to get some of the inside jokes. Overall though, this installment works on its own, so if you want to skip straight to the prince of darkness’ story, go right ahead. And, I can’t say that I blame you because there’s definitely something sexy about a bad boy of biblical proportions going gaga over a woman.
One of the best elements of HER SINFUL ANGEL was getting the lowdown on the man himself. I’ve never really thought about Satan’s fall from his POV, but the author goes there while also tossing his one true love at him. By the end of this tale, you feel for the guy, you absolutely do. Nina did her thing well too; she has a tiny dark side to her which helps them connect on a basic level, and her ex was a total bonehead, so she’s done her time, and is entitled to her happy ending.
The plot arc was straight to the point yet effective. I think that I would have rolled my eyes at it had I read this novel a few years back; however it was just the thing that I needed at precisely the right moment. My book to mood ratio was dead on with this pick! Anyway, yes, it’s slightly corny, but sometimes you just NEED a shot of dreams-do-come-true while you’re lounging by the pool with your eReader, drinking a cold beer, and trying extremely hard to forget that tomorrow is Monday.
HER SINFUL ANGEL is sitting pretty at the very top of my HER ANGEL series scoreboard.

I have yet to try this author, I do have a book from her other series. I wish I liked angel books more but there is something about angels as the main characters that doesn’t feel right…lol. I have read some but I do try and avoid them, but this series sounds good.

I am not a huge fan of angels (mostly they don’t work for me–there are exceptions of course) but with this series still going strong I am going to give this series a try.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well, Carmel. I do wish I’d had the advantage of reading the previous installments but I know I have lots to look forward to in getting caught up. 🙂 Lucifer was definitely my favorite part of this story and I loved that Felicity went “there” in explaining his fall. It was definitely food for thought. Great review, girl!
