Paranormal Romance, Angels, Demons
Ebook (185 pages, COVET)
Loving her is forbidden. Leaving her is impossible...
Raphael is the Archangel of Justice, a champion of humans, and a warrior who has kept demons from the human realm. Having a half-demon hiding in his home is strictly verboten. And the fact that he can't keep his hands off her? Well, sometimes the war between good and evil is best fought between the sheets...
Astaroth Sinclair's demon side is taking over, staining her entire body red and raising her body temperature hot enough to incinerate her clothes. Even more complicated is the fact that she is helplessly and hopelessly in love with Raphael-even if they have nothing in common other than explosive chemistry.
But when Asta starts digging for answers, she sets off a chain of events that no one could have foreseen. Now her love for Raphael will either save the world...or destroy it.

I liked Trusting an Angel more but... (3 stars)
When it comes to paranormal romance angels and demons can be a hard sell for a lot of us readers. If you're not usually a big fan but like brotherhood-centric series like Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld or the Black Dagger Brotherhood you might want to give Missy Jane's Archangels a try.
While I'm really liking the overall concept and arcing story I was surprised to find myself flailing with DESIRING A DEMON. I'd previously really liked both Rafe and Asta as secondaries in the previous book but suddenly found them... diminished? I guess that's the word I'm looking for. They were just a little less edgy and a little more wrapped up in each other and instead of working for me it felt almost too sappy for me. That said, it wasn't awful, I just felt like as characters they got too lost in each other and in doing so became different personality wise. With Asta's half-demon nature starting to take over they have their work cut out for them trying to find a way to keep her darker nature from taking over.
A quick read, DAD isn't flawless but has some great surprises toward the end that I hope will lead into further Archangels stories. If you haven't picked it up yet, you really should read TRUSTING AN ANGEL first because so much background for this series is rooted there and I enjoyed it a lot.
