A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy Higgins at a book convention, and I picked up an extra signed copy of Sweet Peril for a giveaway.  As I really love this series, and this second novel in the series is absolutely phenomenal, I thought a December giveaway was the perfect time for this one, as it’s the holiday and all.  Good luck!

Synopsis:

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Kaidan Rowe, glorious, swoon-worthy Kaidan Rowe, is back.  And I love him.  My heart belonged to him in Sweet Evil, and this second, riveting novel in the series solidified that fact in this steamy portrayal of love.  He is perfect.

In the beginning, I was a little worried that Higgins was pulling a Stephanie Meyer in that Kaidan’s scenes were few and far between.  Just like when Meyers removed Edward from New Moon, placing Jacob at the forefront, Higgins seemed to pull Kaidan.  He barely existed within the pages, and it was killing me as I watched Anna’s love for him slowly deteriorate as she struggled to understand and internalize his rejection.  They were so perfect together, and while it made sense that he had to back off, his blasé mannerisms and lack of scenes within the novel drove me batty, especially as Kopano is now on the scene, attempting to win Anna’s favor, and while I do like Kopano, he’s no Kaidan.  Just like Jacob is no Edward.

Thankfully, Higgins only toys with our emotions for so long, bringing Kaidan back into the novel on an extremely high and sensual note, and Anna and his love once again has the chance to kindle and grow.  But it is still touch and go, especially with the demons out to destroy all Nephilim who stand against them, and in solidifying their love, that is exactly what Kaidan and Anna are preparing to do.

This is not a story of angels, but rather a story of demons and their half children—a love story so powerful you won’t be able to put it down.  If you haven’t yet read the first novel in this amazing trilogy, Sweet Evil, then you need to do so ASAP, because Sweet Peril is just as amazing, and you don’t want to miss.  Believe me.  Five stars.

5 stars

I purchased this novel from Amazon.
