I appreciated Ms. Elson's careful, reasoned use of religion in this novel. Though it definitely reflects a Catholic world-view, it should be understandable to those of other religions (or no religion at all), and gives this book a hook that sets it apart from other angelic novels (which often choose to eschew problematic theology in favor of making angels a sort of... heavenly-and sexy!-superheroes). The divine/human relationship is treated with respect, which I appreciate.
There IS steamy sex, though I'll leave it up to the reader to find out how THAT happens, and some exciting action sequences that will get your heart racing.
My single criticism of Divine Temptation is that it really is mislabeled: this is NOT a romance novel, but a fully fleshed novel of the paranormal with a romantic aspect. I could easily see it marketed to a wider audience than a typical 'romance' engenders, because this is not stuff that will appeal just to women.
Divine Temptation is an exciting, thought-provoking novel of the supernatural, with strong characters and a good story. It deserves to be savored (though I couldn't do that--read it in one day, both times).
Yes. You read that correctly. An angel.
Evan isn't sure why he's been sent to Maggie, but he knows she needs him. Maggie finds herself becoming more and more attracted to Evan as unknown evil forces threaten her.
I love this book. The characters are interesting (Nicki, how did you know exactly how I felt while I was going through my divorce?), the plot is exciting, and the book has all sorts of unexpected twists and turns.
Plus, Nicki is so very good at writing sex scenes that cause one to blush only a tiny bit.
This novel is Nicki's second. Her first was Three Daves. Three Daves represents Nicki's coming of age in the form of the novel and in her maturity as a writer. She was getting her feet wet with Three Daves, and it's a great first novel.
But now we have a mature writer in Nicki Elson. Divine Temptation is highly superior to Three Daves (though I certainly enjoyed Three Daves, and I encourage you to read it).
Eison spins a fascinating tale that examines classic conflicts like good vs. evil and faith vs. doubt, and she does so in a fresh and thoroughly captivating manner. Her characters are real and believable, facing real-world difficulties regarding love, friendship, and forgiveness, as well as other-worldly difficulties with angels, demons, and evil possession.
I read this book when it was first released, and thought I'd written a review on it, but if I did, the review isn't here anymore. SO, I read the book again yesterday to refresh my memory, so I could write a new review today.
I'm glad I did. I enjoyed this book as much... if not more... the second time around as I did the first. First time, I was enthralled by the story. Second time, I still loved the story, but was better able to appreciate the writing itself. What can I say? This is a reeeeeally good book.
Divine Temptation is a unique romance in that the romance itself is not the main focus of the story. It's secondary to a more compelling plot. I found this to be refreshing, as was the paranormal aspect of the book. Also commendable is that the characters have depth - strengths and weaknesses, and are not always predictable. Even the ending was not exactly what I expected. I would definitely recommend Divine Temptation to those who enjoy romance books.
