As a fallen Angel of Death, Azrael is cursed to walk the earth alone in search of redemption. One night, as he wanders the streets of New Orleans, he discovers a woman surrounded by panther shifters. No longer able to contain the anger simmering within, Az summons his dark powers and attacks, determined to protect this innocent human from certain death.
Only Jade Pierce is no delicate flower. She’s spent years learning to survive and fight the evil forces sent by her ex-lover who refuses to let her go. But after seeing Az in action, she figures she could use a little supernatural help. And so she plans a course of seduction guaranteed to arouse his interest and his angelic passions…
I’ve been anxiously awaiting ANGEL IN CHAINS ever since I read ANGEL BETRAYED. My expectations were high going in and I am so happy to say Jade and Az exceeded those expectations. Jade is a fantastically flawed heroine. She’s made massive mistakes in her life that led to lives lost. Now all she wants is a chance to live her life free of her psycho ex and she’s willing to use Az to get that. But from the beginning, she can’t fight her attraction to him.
Az has never understood why other Fallens give in to temptations of the flesh until he meets Jade. She awakens feelings he’s never experienced and this virgin hero wastes no time in making up for those lost centuries. He’s hot, badass, protective, and surprisingly sweet. Both of my favorite quotes are from Az.
“His hands, though lethally strong, were lighter on her flesh.
Gentleness. She’s only expected heat and hunger.
“I won’t break,” Jade told him.
“I’ll never let you.” A vow.
Az never wanted her to know the truth about him. He wanted her to keep looking at him like he was a hero. Like he was a protector. A man she could count on. A man she wanted.
Not a monster she feared.
This was such a fantastic romance! Suspenseful and over the top with an ending that made me cry, ANGEL IN CHAINS was one of the best paranormal romances I’ve read this year. I can’t recommend it enough!
