Heaven doesn’t want him. Hell is afraid of him. She can see right through him…

That tag-line alone had me eager to dive into this category novel. When I did, I wasn’t disappointed. The first chapter was simply fantastic. It hooked me in immediately and had me dying to read on.

Quickly, you're captivated by dangerous demons, brilliant sexual tension, and hot love scenes between one quirky demon hunter and a sinfully sexy Fallen Angel. But that's only the beginning. This story is far more than just the steamy stuff; it has a compelling plot with lots of action too.

My only qualm, and it isn’t much of one, I wish McHugh went into more depth about the world she created. Who exactly is the Foundation? What is their purpose and why is there a need for them? I was a little lost as to the rules that govern this world. All that said, if you’re looking for a fast, sexy tale―this is it!


If the abrupt appearance of Will Vassago on her couch is any indication, knowledge of Anjali’s rare ability to see past demons’ disguising glamours has spread far beyond the Foundation. One thing that hasn’t changed since she accidentally touched him two years ago—his unnerving affect on her hormones.

Officially, Vassago needs Anjali’s help to find an escaped Skinwalker demon. He’s also got some not-so-official plans for their down time, but if her sensitive gift reveals who he really is—a fallen angel—any chance to fan the embers of desire between them will be lost.

Anjali tries to get their assignment over with before she loses control entirely. With every encounter, the unquenchable fire in her body burns hotter. And Vassago is startled to realize when he almost loses her to the rifts of Hell he has already lost his heart.

Then they discover the Skinwalker is only the tip of the iceberg. If they can’t get a lid on the situation, Manhattan will suffer a fate worse than Sodom and Gomorrah, and not even Vassago’s celestial sword will protect Anjali from the Angel of Death.

Warning: Contains an OCD demon hunter, a naughty angel with voyeuristic tendencies, bedtime wrestling over who gets to be on top and a very inappropriately used sari.

A line from Angelic Surrender that had me drooling with word envy―Heaven never felt this blissful. Ambrosia never tasted this sweet, and sin never tempted him the way she did.

Thanks for the great review, Stacey! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. As for the world-building, there's some more of that in the previous novella, and I hope to keep dropping more hints about the Foundation as the series continues.
