Ellen (gremlin) - reviewed Daemon's Angel (Angel's Touch) on
Helpful Score: 4
Normally I enjoy Sherrilyn Kenyon's work, particularly her Dark-Hunters, and even her historical romances written as Kinley MacGregor, but I could not get into this book. The whole time I was making myself read it, rather than enjoying it. To me, it felt like a clumsy first novel. First she wants him, and he avoids her. Then he wants her, and she avoids him. Oh no, we can't be together, etc. Bleh. Plus since she's an angel cursed into human form, there's a lot of talk about God and his mysterious ways, and that's generally not what I'm reading a romance novel for.
As a primary angel, Arina didn't have emotions, couldn't feel pain. When she takes the soul of a boy, his mother curses her. Only the death of a loved one in her arms can free Arina from her human body so she can become an angel again.
Daemon, branded and named a demon, only wishes to fight in hopes it will bring his death. Instead, the Norman finds himself the unwilling Lord of Brunneswald Hall. Finding a gorgeous woman who has lost her memory and isn't afraid of him also wasn't part of his plan.
