Ms. Ione has brought us the fourth installment in her Demonica series. This book caught my attention from the first word and held it until the end. If you are a fan of Ms Ione's Demonica series, you will not be disappointed in this newest release. This series would make a great nighttime soap opera. If you have not started the Demonica series yet…make sure to start with book one to get the biggest impact. The next installment will be out in September 2010, Sin Undone.
Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.
AN ANGEL TEMPTED
Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.
Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.
