OMG it’s Josh from book one (Heavenly Lover) Dark angel and resident bad guy.
He’s training new recruits, but he’s not in the zone. He’s still bristling from losing both a human soul and a heavenly one.
Melanie is slowly recovering from the loss of her boyfriend, she’s sure he tried to save her before he died.
Her new love is a flower shop, she loves her job, but still misses him. The only person who ever really knew her.
I didn’t think this book could be any better than the first, I was wrong. I’d come to expect a story full of passion, indecision and twists. I got that in spades. I didn’t think we would be able to redeem Josh, he’s been evil for centuries, convincing humans to end their life for a better one in the underworld (well that’s not going to happen is it?) he’s very good at his job. But he feels like he’s under investigation from the new director, and he’s not sure why!
Melanie was lovely, coming from a rich but cold family, all she’s ever wanted was love and a family, meeting Felix she thought they’d be together forever…..
Meeting Josh, Melanie thinks she’s found a new love, but Josh being Josh has been given a task. But will he be able to convince Melanie to come with him? But what if he doesn’t want her to travel to the underworld, what if he wants to stay with her? The attraction Josh feels for Melanie is confusing him no end. He wants her, he could have her, but keeping her? That’s not like him.
(Peter) New Director runs the Underworld, I liked that idea, different from the usual rulers of Hell/Underworld. He’s now interested in Melanie, but why? Is it because he knows how Josh feels about her? Can someone that evil actually want Melanie? Yes he does, but not as a mate/wife, he wants her as a concubine in his harem!
Secondary characters are just as important as the main characters in this book. A lot of time and effort is invested.
Audray makes a surprising visit in this book (the woman Daniel loved in “Heavenly Lover”)
And Jonas (who I hear you cry) well he’s a player and a much needed character, and that’s all your getting from me😉
Third book “Underworld” Queen is next on my reading list.
Highly recommend this book.
