Short and sweet, if a bit under-fleshed. I would have liked to see a bit more of what led Darr to love Isolde, how his feelings changed from his initial thoughts of simply staying away from his previous master, to loving Isolde. After all, he's a demon, presumably much older than Isolde, so I would have liked to have been sold the romance a bit more. Even so, I liked how Isolde was careful with Darr, about how she thought about his supposed position, and how careful she was to preserve him even at the cost of herself.
I'm looking forward to the next book, but I'm a bit divided as to whether I would like to see more of Isolde and Darr or of that intriguing angel that shows up.
Demons are real, and they walk among us...
Isolde Duchane grew up with a demon for a bodyguard. But as she’s matured, so have her preferences. And she’s got a thing for tall, strong, dark, and powerful demonic men. Really just one very specific demonic man. It’s too bad his life is bound to hers, putting her in a terribly awkward spot since what she wants is something more than a bodyguard.
Darr was summoned to protect Izzy when she was young. And he played the part to keep his own personal demons off his back. But things are starting to get out of hand, and not just because of his powerful attraction to the woman she’s become. The demon he’s been hiding from may have found him, and if he has…he may never get to tell Izzy the truth.
