Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?

As normal Kerrelyn made me laugh throughout the book. But she also made me cry not far into the book, if you have been following the series you will know why I cried when you get to it in the book.
I love the sarcastic humor in all of Kerrelyn's books =)
I can't wait for Gregori's story to be told!
Marielle is an angel who has just lost her wings for disobeying AGAIN, Connor finds her and tries to save her. Only after Shanna touches her at Romatech they realize she is not just any angel but perhaps the angel of death.
Connor has never seen such a beautiful woman and while he waits for decisions from Roman and Angus at Howard's cabin, he wonders how he will be able to keep his hands off this angelic being.
Being human is very odd for Marielle and caring for her is way different for Connor.
Good things happen in Connor's story but also a few bad things. We see a few old characters becoming new vampires and we lose an old friend.
For first time readers, this book will be confusing. The author does not provide even the brief back plot that she does in all her other books and you will have a hard time following this book if you are not familiar with the characters from previous books.
For fans of the series, this is going to be a huge disappointment for so many reasons.
Many fans have been waiting for Connor Buchanan's story throughout the series. While the premise of the book has promise, character development is a huge problem in this book. Marielle, our heroine, never became fully developed or important throughout the story. An even bigger problem along this line is the reaction of the other characters to Connor throughout the book. The reactions of Roman and Robby to Connor and his plight are unbelievable and just poor writing when compared to their characters in previous plots.
While this book has a bit of customary humor, the jokes are typical and all ones we have heard before from other characters. There was very little original humor in this book and the dialogue was simple and boring in parts.
Our heroine, Marielle, while likable, was never fully developed as a real love interest. She and Connor did not have common ties as Spark's characters almost always do, and it made her unreachable.
One of the biggest problems of this whole book was the demise of Casimir. For those of you who do not follow the series, Casimir is the villain of the series. He manages to elude capture and certain death in every book and has been well developed as a villain.Read more ›
UPDATE: I don't know how many of you go onto K. Sparks website, but apparently our author has decided not to end this series, and the next story will be Grogori. I am confused how she is going to continue with this series, since all her main and bigtime characters are already married and having babies. I hope she does not drag this series out. I really hate it when authors diviate from the main story line. She would really BREAK MY HEART if she did that.
