Nicole St. James was a school teacher until the night she was attacked by a vampire. Then her world is turned upside down. Now she has to learn how to live in a completely different world. Everything is completely different now and Nicole is fast learning that all she believes was true in the world isn’t even close to being what the world is really like.

Keenan is the Angel of Death and it was his job to take Nicole the night she was attacked. Instead he took the vampire and saved Nicole. It cost him his wings but he knows that Nicole is more than worth the sacrifice. When Keenan finally catches up with Nicole again he finds a vastly different woman than the one he saved. Now she isn’t as innocent and she has long fangs.

Now Nicole is determined to make those that helped turn her into a vampire pay for what they have done. Except when it comes to a Fallen Angel than she is more interested in teaching Keenan the fun to be had with some sins rather than teaching him a lesson about what she has turned into. Now they are going to have to find away to survive with heaven and a good portion of hell after them. Nicole may have survived once but if she isn’t careful she won’t survive a second time.

This is another wonderful story from this author. This book takes the reader back to the author’s paranormal world. While it touches briefly on her other series it is a story that is completely stand alone. The world building is really good and brings the characters to live for the reader. It also has enough twists to make sure the reader is never quite sure what will happen next and what the motivations for some of the character is. If readers enjoy books with angels as the heroes this is one not to miss.

I give this one 5 red roses
