Archaeologist Cammie Howard was trying to retrieve a valuable relic when Dante suddenly appeared. She was grateful when he saved her life but found herself having a hard time coming to grips with his claims of curses and demons. She doesn't care what Dante says it's her excavation and she's the one in charge. Dante is a supernatural being who took human form because he knew he was the only one who could protect Cammie from the evil that is stalking her. But he never realized the effect that Cammie would have on his new human body. But by giving in to the passion she rouses in him has Dante weakened himself so that he won't be able to protect Cammie. Or has love strengthen him? With a demon determined to destroy Cammie, Dante's about to find out.
Dante's Relic was a little different paranormal romance but I believe that readers will find it very enjoyable. Dante's confusion over the new feelings in his human body and his determination to protect Cammie make him an easy hero to fall for. Cammie, although a little hardheaded, is a wonderful heroine who readers will like. With hot love scenes, emotional intensity and demons to fight Dante's Relic is a wonderful addition to Ellora's Cave.
Paranormal fantasy with a lot of action - but had some 'say what?' moments. The characters are an angel, a demon and an archaeologist [all you need is a bar to take this a step farther:]. The angel is occasionally un-angelic, the archaeologist seems sadly unknowledgeable/uninterested in her areas of expertise [or perhaps it's the situation:], but the demon is happily demonic. A nice little read-once.
