New York Times bestselling author Sandra Hill delivers a sizzling new entry in her Deadly Angels series, as a Viking vangel’s otherworldly mission teams him with a Navy SEAL who’s more than his match-she’s his predestined mate . . .
The fact that vampire angel Harek Sigurdsson was a Norseman in his mortal life doesn’t make thawing out after exile in Siberia any easier. But things heat up when his search for evil Lucipires connects him with Camille Dumaine, a human who thrums with sensual energy that can mean only one thing: she’s the mate Harek’s been seeking for centuries. . .
The SEALs call her “Camo” for her ability to blend into a crowd-yet Harek’s intense blue gaze singles Camille out like a white-hot spotlight. The security wiz was hired to help bring down a ruthless band of international kidnappers, but Camille senses an unspoken agenda-besides Harek’s bold declaration that she’s his “destiny”. Just Camille’s luck that the sexiest man she’s ever met may also be …a vampire!
This is the second book in the Deadly Angels series that I have had the pleasure to read. As such I have prior experience with the concept of Viking Vampire Angels, Vangels for short. This is the sixth book in the series; however, it can be read as a stand-alone. It does not matter where in the series you begin as the author provides sufficient back story making it easy for readers to follow.
I know the concept of Viking vampire angels may sound a bit weird to some, however, don’t let it fool you as I have found the stories so far to very entertaining. The issues on which the story is based are serious, but somehow Ms. Hill is able to keep the story quite witty.
This installment tells the story of Harek and Camille. Harek was sentenced to life as a vangel because of his sin of greed. Becoming an angel meant Harek would have a second chance; however, it was not all fun and games as he was forced for most of the time to live in exile in Siberia. This, however, would change when he was summoned to assist in a mission to Nigeria. The mission involved helping the Navy Seals hunt down a band of terrorists who were involved in human trafficking. It was here he would meet his life mate Camille a WEAL which is the female version of the Navy Seals.
The interaction between them was very entertaining. Their chemistry was off the charts, and I found their banter to be witty. At first Harek was adverse to the idea of Camille being his life mate, but once he accepted what was a known fact he was determined to win her over. Camille on the other hand was not interested in any relationship based on past experiences. What I found amusing about this scenario was that Harek represented everything Camille resented. Will Harek be able to break down her barriers? Will she be able to resist his charms?
Not only was this story funny, it was fast paced, action packed, engaging and steamy. It was easy to connect with the characters. There was sufficient information about the characters that makes it easy for readers to know their hopes and dreams. It was evident why they behaved the way they did.
Overall, I enjoyed this installment and I will be looking to read the other books in the series. If you are a fan of action-packed paranormal romance and you like stories that are sprinkled with humour, then this would be a great addition to reading list.
