Can a dark virgin beauty condemned to die break preconceived notions in order to give a guardian angel an incubus’s kiss?
Hunted since her illegitimate birth, Keiranna DeKnight spends her entire life running from guardians of the council. Half incubus, she uses venom to seduce "victims" in an erotic dream while she absorbs their energy to survive. Yet, being half angel, only the sexual energy of an archangel can fully satisfy her need. Through this dichotomy, she remains a physical virgin.
Cassiel is High Guardian Keeper of the Aequitas Dominion prison. To him, the orders and laws are finite. But when he sees the newest prisoner, he begins to question his eternal mission.
Would a chance for love be worth your wings? What happens when good and evil collide? A whole lot of gray area. Things aren’t always black and white, as Cassiel, High Guardian Keeper of Aequitas Dominion Prison discovers.
Cassiel prides himself on being firm but fair. He doesn’t abide torture of the prisoners, or insubordination by lower angels. What he doesn’t expect is the sexual energy emanating from his latest inmate to affect him so much. The dark beauty hanging within the cell causes his body to react in ways it shouldn’t, and his mind to entertain thoughts that could land him in a cell of his own. While he’s permitted to satisfy his physical needs with a fellow angel, emotions are forbidden. But Cassiel wants more than bodily satisfaction; he wants Keiranna in every way imaginable.
Hunted since birth, Keiranna has made it a point to avoid angels at all costs. Seems unfair to find complete satisfaction means giving herself to one who seems Hell bent on making her a prisoner for eternity. Poked, prodded, and whipped without mercy by one guard after another, she doesn’t expect much else from the High Guardian. She certainly doesn’t expect him to care about her innocence, and is even more shocked about his proposed “assessment.”
Unholy Angel was an interesting read. The first few pages were a bit of a struggle, as I tried to connect with the characters and their setting. But once I got my bearings, the story quickly grew enthralling. The author’s depiction of angels, demons, and their duties was a refreshing twist from the norm. Even in a realm where beings are supposed to be “pure”, you find corruption and lies. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's creativity and praise her on a wonderful tale.
Unholy Angel is a wonderful depiction of how love can cross the line between enemies.
