For the Love of Angels

Note: This is the final of a trio of posts about some of the best in paranormal bad boys and villains. The post about Werewolves is HERE and the post about Vampires is HERE

Angels. Forbidden temptation. Dark lust. Fallen from grace. Overcoming the odds. 

I have to admit. I have weakness for them. I'm not sure where it started, but I'll share my journey. I cam into lusting after angels in my late teens. Angels had, for the most part, dominated great bad guy positions (Christopher Walken as Gabriel and Vigo Mortensen as Lucifer in The Prophecy) or been cast in comedic roles (Emmanuelle BĂ©art in A Date With an Angel and Paul Hogan in Almost and Angel). I had read a few fallen from grace romances, but they never really got my interest. So let's fast-forward to my late teens.  

My first memory of the seductive power of angels came from The Prophecy II. Omg Danyeal (the gorgeous and talented Russell Wong). 

He was sent from Heaven in order to seduce the movie heroine. My most memorable line? They are in the middle of having amazing sex and he asks "Do you accept me?". Well, I immediately said yes in my teenage heart. While it wasn't the first time I wanted to swap places with a movie heroine, it had a powerful impact on my teenage mind and heart (I was nineteen). 

He went on to be in some pretty amazing movies and TV shows as well. Romeo Must Die, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Numb3rs, Hawaii 5-0 and more. I've seen almost all of his foreign films and love his style, but he'll always have my heart as Danyeal. 

What about Castiel from Supernatural? He has a loyal fan following. 

Sexy. Dangerous. Trying to follow the line of the righteous no matter the cost...Castiel is an angel of brooding integrity. He weighs every choice, but does so with style. 

When he lost his grace and became human...his naive journey about what it meant to BE human really broke my heart. He was an angel I loved and would do anything to help return him to grace. If I could. After I got a kiss or two first...of course. LOL! 

We come to the final in my trio of angels I love to lust after. Paul Bettany plays the Archangel Michael in the movie Legion. And oh man, does he play it well. From sacrificing his wings to his incredible firepower, Michael really had my heart pounding. :D I've always been a fan of Paul's work, but this is one of my favorite movies starring him. 

That's it. That's my lustful cravings for angels. I've just started combing through Romances and Urban Fantasies for great series, but they seem to fall a bit short for what I want to read. Do you have any recommendations for great reads involving hot angels fallen from grace? I'd love hear about them in comments! 

Happy Reading,

Dawn Montgomery's latest:


***Released as a standalone with two brand new stories for the readers: Brom's Birthday and The Slow Grind. The main novella, SILVER TONGUED DEVILS, is formerly part of the Tall, Dark and Alpha boxed set***

Raesa was one step from hell until she found redemption in their arms.

Ship thief and notorious escape artist, Raesa Daw was the best in the business until a routine DNA test proves that she's one of the last Earthen purebloods in existence. Desperate to escape sexual slavery and breeding for a royal house, she flees the station on the Crimson Star, landing in the arms of a deadly half-breed, Brom Raine.

One kiss burns away her fear, but opens a world more dangerous than she'd ever known.

Captain Anderson Na'varr of the Mercenary frigate Crimson Star shows no mercy to those who stow away on his vessel. He will take the thief and show her exactly how erotically ruthless he and his Executive Officer, Brom, can be.

Seduced by the dark lust and hidden strength of both men, she vows to do everything in her power to corrupt her DNA before the slavers find her.

Na'varr realizes Raesa holds the key to survival, and losing her to the Republic would destroy the fragile peace he and Brom had found in her arms. Her courage would lead them out of the depths of hell but only their love could keep her alive. 

WARNING: SILVER TONGUED DEVILS contains explicit sex. It is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
