From the Inside Flap
And then she did, and Gabe's universe expanded to include the sensation of soft lips on his own, the exchange of warm breath, and throb in his lower belly that was near pleasure/pain. He had no idea why he let her do it except that she seemed so precious and fragile, so vulnerable, as though she offered him her loneliness and her sorrows along with her body.
Heaven help him, he could not help but drink them in.
Closer she moved, and closer still, until her breasts were against his chest, and it was this that broke the spell; the desire to put his arms around her and drag her even closer came over him like a wave, and with it came the knowledge that if he let it, he would drown.
"Abruptly he jerked his head back, ending the kiss. "Stop," he whispered, looking into her eyes. "You must stop."

Gabriel, an Archangel and long time "friend" to Sammy Divine, knows Sammy is salvageable and capable of love, if only he can get Sammy to see it. Sammy feels Gabriel needs to see that Sammy was not completely at fault when he gave into temptation in the Garden of Eden.
One fateful day, Gabriel sees the Darkness following Hope and is determined to protect her from the Soul Eater. Gabriel and Hope's lives collide with help from Sammy Divine and begin spiraling together.
Once again Terri Garey succeeded in quenching my Sammy Divine thirst while giving us a great story about Gabe and Hope. I flew through this as I usually fly through Terri Garey's book and cannot wait until the next installment. I enjoyed seeing Nicki in this book and I find myself eating up any information as to how she is doing with her HEA :)
Quick & Dirty: A discovery of love, in all its many forms, along with brotherly ragging and child stubbornness.
Opening Sentence: The water in the bathtub was warm, soothing, and a beautiful shade of red.
I have a confession to make. I wasn't sure whether or not I would enjoy a book where an Archangel gets down and dirty with a woman. It sounds similar to many of the other angel books available right now. Well, let me put your mind at ease. This is a wonderful book. The Archangel Gabriel's "down and dirty" is not so much smut, as it is romantic. Tastefully written and truly captivating, A Devil Named Desire is more about love and redemption for all creatures, even angels. I love a good biblically themed story and this one definitely delivers.
The Devil, known as Sammy Divine, is tired of his once brother, the Archangel Gabriel, harping on him. Sammy wants to teach Gabe a lesson in temptation and the power of physical desire. The Devil is petty and malicious and wants to put the angel in his place. But Gabriel has reminded Sammy of long forgotten emotions like love and longing, and whether he wants it or not, Sammy is influenced by them. You can see the difference in the way he treats his minions and goes about ruling his kingdom. Most of all, you can see the effects of having his son around. It's hard for Sammy to remain aloft when Cain is around for the love of a father for his child is hard to deny. Being a parent has definitely changed him; he just doesn't know if it's for the better or not. For a being that has been treated with deference for a millennium, he is now thwarted by a nine-year-old boy at every turn. Will Sammy's heart let this sweet child in?Read more ›
Sammy, always the Master of Deceit, has his own agenda. Give Hope the opportunity to see her sister again, and in return Hope will create a site for his followers to worship him and his minions, as well as her immortal soul. However, Archangel Gabriel, the Lightbringer, never the one to let a good soul fall into the abyss, notices the darkness shadowing Hope, and steps up to the plate, appointing himself her protector.
I really liked this story. Gabriel, as an angel, is historically forbidden to partake in sins of the flesh, otherwise risk falling the way of his brother, Samael. He holds himself to this high standard, looking down on his fallen brethren because he cannot comprehend his temptation as he has never been tempted. Until he meets Hope. Hope appears to be anything but attracted to him, which boggles his mind and captures his attention more thoroughly than whatever game the Devil is playing at.
I had a few problems with the wording. It seems the author has a style that can be a little backwards at times, but overall, the tone was perfectly fine. I also noticed a few typos, but that is nothing compared to the actual leaving out of words. That was my biggest annoyance throughout this book. In the end, I couldn't hold it against the author because there were some great passages that were beautifully written.Read more ›
The story grabs you by the hair and only let go when it ends. I recommend.
