After being trapped out of space and time, Dr. Noemi Gastineau finally discovers her true nature and the amazing destiny that awaits her. However, danger surrounds her on every side. It seems that a rogue angel, an insane nymph, and a wily demon would be enough for a woman to deal with for one day. Unfortunately, Azrael, the Angel of Death is now on her tail, and he's one of the good guys!
How's a succubus supposed to get any quality time with her men when the whole universe seems to be out to get her?
Imagine Dr. Noemi Gastineau’s surprise when she discovers her inner self is a succubus named Anahita, and that her two main men are Rex and Rion. Rion is Orion Hunter, or Kokabiel, a fallen angel framed by the rogue angel and thrown from Heaven centuries ago. Rex, or Reux, is a Sidhe-born Scottish farmer who found Rion when he fell to earth, and they have been friends and lovers ever since.
Can Noemi escape and warn Rex and Rion of the trouble coming their way before it’s too late? Will Rion remember who Noemi/Anahita is to him? Can these three find a way to survive against all odds, including evading Azrael, the Angel of Death?
Belinda McBride’s third installment of the Bad Angels series is the most interesting of the three. The intersection of the characters’ lives, past and present is fantastic. This is the most complex storyline and I enjoyed it very much.
Noemi has come to terms with her inner succubus, Anahita, and is determined to find a way to save both of her lovers from destruction. Rex and Rion return to the farm in Scotland where Noemi finds them, and it is here that they decide to make their stand against everyone.
Rex is magical, strong and gorgeous. Rion has the inner beauty of an angel, and the strength of spirit and body needed in the coming fight. The twists and turns in this one are absolutely marvelous, and the relationships are deliciously convoluted. Of course, this being Belinda McBride, the sex is steamy and delightfully plentiful. Both men are way beyond sexy and the scenes between them get hot quickly. Once Noemi/Anahita returns, the heat cranks up even hotter. Does Rion ever remember his past, and his links to these other beings? I recommend that you read Bad Angels: Heaven to find out. One warning up front-be prepared for lots of three way loving and hot action with this one.
