There were a few minor issues as far as the book goes. I don't think there really was any profanity in the book--at least that I can remember. There are some sex scenes, and I didn't feel that the detail during one of the scenes was necessary, but it did not ruin my perception of the book--as you can see. While there is a lot violence, none of it is overly graphic. Yes, it paints a picture, but it was never offensive to me.
This author is absolutely amazing. Her powers of description are rare in today's writing world (at least from what I have seen). And her characterizations are amazing. Practically every character is three-dimensional, and I truly connected with the story even though I am so far removed. I would definitely recommend this book, and I can hardly wait to read more of her historical novels.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
The book will keep you interested until the end. I started it before bed and ended up staying up half the night to finish it because I couldn't put it down. I was in shock when I found out who ordered the hit against Aurora's mother. That person wasn't even on my radar though once I found out, it made sense why they ordered it and why they still feel guilty about it. I also loved how the book comes full circle and Damien gets closure for what happened to him growing up.
Now, on to the romance, which is the main reason why I picked the book up. The romance between Damien and Aurora was amazing. There was a slow build until the final payout which I think had to happen for the story line to work. Even though Damien was intrigued by her from first sight, O'Donnell handled his lust and Aurora's growing attraction perfectly. It wasn't rushed and the romance didn't overshadow the plot. I loved how both Damien and Aurora questioned their feelings for each other. It made it more realistic, especially since Damien is tasked with trying to kill her and Aurora is royalty and shouldn't be thinking about someone beneath her station. As much as I wanted to see them together, I also wanted to see what would happen; would Damien end up killing her or would their budding attraction win out. Since it is a romance novel you can guess what happens but the writing works in such a way that you still wonder until the end if they will be together.
**I received this book from ABG Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.**
Damien is a slave and a trained assassin. He is good at what he does, so good, in fact, that his master agrees to release him if he kills one last person. As a cold, calculating killer Damien never asks why a person must die, he just carries out his duty that is until he meets Aurora. The woman shines like a light into his dark light, illuminating corners he'd forgotten, making him yearn for both home and love. The only problem is to gain his freedom he must kill the only woman who ever truly cared about him.
Lady Aurora is aware her mother's evil continues to reap consequences no matter how hard Aurora works to correct the wrong done. Her mother's killer might possibly come back for her. Dark brooding Damien enters her world upsetting her already tenuous balance by creating forbidden desires for someone not of her station. She finds herself drawn to the unsuitable man seemingly against her will. He is a stranger who keeps so much from her. Even though she knows all the reasons to stay away from Damien, she fails to heed them.
Angel's Assassin moves at a nice pace with excellent descriptions and supporting characters. Damien and Aurora's romance progresses in stages as most romances realistically do. The reader wants the two to work out their differences. Usually finding out your lover is also your assassin is a bit off putting. Ms. O'Donnell gives the flavor of the period with no history book heaviness.
Angel's Assassin is a wonderful page-turner romance. Make sure you have enough time to finish it because you will not be putting it down. Two thumbs up for Ms. O'Donnell and Angel's Assassin.
I received the book as a gift, which make it twice as nice.
