Early on, Essie McBane set her standards high and waited for true love. She never expected the answer to her prayer to literally fall from heaven in the shape of a warrior angel with chestnut curls and a celestial body. As much as she’d love to teach the divine creature a thing or two about sex and lust, can she be responsible for leading him into temptation?
Sinfully handsome Cam-ael, an angel, is wounded in the second war between heaven and hell and plummets into the arms of a beautiful human. But Cam knows he must return eventually, no matter how much he likes the material pleasures of earth. Not to mention the sensual pleasure he’s found with Essie.
But when his mortal feelings for Essie draws a demon into the midst, can Cam protect her or will he learn the true meaning of the word sacrifice?
Review: Do you live alone? What would you do if the perfect male specimen that you had been praying for or dreaming about suddenly fell from the sky at your feet?
That is exactly what happened to Essie McBane in this somewhat funny, yet charming story. Essie lived on a farm she had inherited from her Uncle. Alone, living a lonely life she prayed often for her dream man to show up putting an end to her life of solitude.
Cam-eal an angel fighting in heaven trying to save his brother Michael is wounded and falls from heaven onto and into Essie farm and life. Lying at her feet is the perfect male, quite nude and injured.
Cam’s curiosity is almost childlike in a way. But it doesn’t stay that way for long. He feels if his was given the parts why not use them. Poor Essie doesn’t want to be a part of Cam becoming a fallen angel.
They dance around the issue of sex for a while. Not able to ignore the chemistry that has been there from the beginning they end up having very hot, steamy sex. The scene in the air, no clothes, she is wrapped around him…nothing but wings. What a way to join the mile high club. I’ll like to put my order in for an angel now.
Ms. Swan wrote a delightful story of an older woman finding her soul mate in that of a younger man or rather angel. Well thought out characters along with a developed plot made for a successful whimsical story. I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Essie and Cam-eal; I think that we just may see them show up in other stories from time to time. I look forward to more from Ms. Swan.
