"Delightful vampire romance"
In 1802 London, friends and society pariahs Raphael Fahlan,
Michael Wyhndym and Gabriel Arden save the life of David
Mallory. The grateful duke helps them regain their lost
positions while the Ton calls them the Fallen Angels.
Katherine Darien, a vampire, selects the threesome to serve
as her protectors against the cretin who converted her.
She becomes David's lover before killing him once she meets
the Angels. Katherine converts Michael into a vampire and
tries to kill Rafe and Gabriel. A sister vampire Sasha
saves Gabriel by changing him over while Katherine in her
haste to murder Rafe, converts him into a vampire.
Two centuries later, the Fallen Angels live in New Orleans.
Gabriel is a homicide detective who loves and hates Sasha
while Rafe and Michael run a nightclub. They hire security
specialist Montgomery "Gomery" Sinclair to insure the
safety of their patrons, but the attraction between the
female security specialist and Rafe is torrid. However,
Katherine hates the Fallen Angles almost as much as she
detests her "sire". She sees "Gomery" as a tool to destroy
at a minimum at least Rafe, her most passionate enemy of
FALLEN ANGELS/RAFE'S HEART is a delightful vampire romance
that hooks the audience from the moment Gomery throws a
counterpoint jab at Rafe. The story line is loaded with
action, but also provides the audience insight into the key
cast members, especially Rafe. Fans of plenty of blood
flowing tales need to look elsewhere. However, readers who
appreciate a complex tale with horror elements interwoven
into a cross-species love story will relish this book. The
audience will want the romantic adventures of the other
Angels told especially between Sasha and Gabriel.
