Astaroth Sinclair has a human mother and a demon for a father. She’s finding it increasingly difficult to cope with the demon half of her nature which seems to repel most people. That’s when she meets the Archangel of Justice, Raphael, who fights to keep demons from the human realm. He recognises her humanity and gives her sanctuary in his home but there are complications – they’re attracted to each other but fighting it and, not only that, but her demon half seems to be trying to take over her body staining more and more of it red. She keeps burning up, too, incinerating whatever she’s wearing in the process! Astra wants to know what’s happening to her so she seeks out others to ask advice from. That’s when the chain reaction that endangers everyone is initiated – will Raphael and his brother angels end up saving the world but killing her or can he find a way to let love conquer all?

The good v evil conflict, the way that Rafe shows he isn’t totally angelic and Asta isn’t totally evil all add interest. The banter between the characters, the way the author portrays the turmoil between Asta and all the angels (especially Michael) make this an entertaining read for anyone who likes their romance fiction to have a paranormal twist to it. I hope there will be other stories to make this a series – I’d really like to read Michael’s story next, please!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
