Nancy holder's three part story based off three episodes of Buffy the vampire slayer. Angel a vampire, spent years hunting and killing in Europe, then when he fed upon a young gypsy girl, the tribes elders cursed him with the perfect punishment. They gave him back his soul. Now he spends his time trying to make amends for the things he has done. When he meets the strong beautiful young slayer, it can't help but fall for her. And she for him...
Part one: "Angel" is based off one of my favorite episodes of season one. It is when Buffy learns who Angel really is.
Part two "Reptile boy" takes us to season two and some guys you do not want to party with!
And part three "lie to me" is also set in season two. It shows problems going on between Buffy and Angel.
The stories are great. Holder gets in the details and the comedy. It defiantly does Buffy justice.
I also liked how it switched from view points. So you could tell what everyone was thinking.

"She's stronger than any Slayer you've faced. Force won't get it done. You gotta work from the inside. To kill this have to love her."
For Buffy the Vampire Slayer, birthdays aren't all parties and cake -- hers tend to involve a life-or-death battle with a big evil. Her seventeenth celebration isn't an exception. While Buffy's friends organize a festive gathering in honor of the special day, Spike and Drusilla are planning their own surprise party for the Slayer -- with a devastating demon as the grand finale.

But a passionate night with Angel changes everything. Suddenly, Buffy must deal with two forms of ultimate evil: the almost-indestructible Judge -- and the legendary vampire Angelus, who is determined to exact his special brand of revenge on the young woman who showed him true love.
