Raphael is the Archangel of Justice, a champion of humans and a warrior who has kept demons from the human realm. Having a half-demon hiding in his home is strictly verboten. And the fact that he can't keep his hands off her? Well, sometimes the war between good and evil is best fought between the sheets...

Astaroth Sinclair's demon side is taking over, staining her entire body red and raising her body temperature hot enough to incinerate her clothes. Even more complicated is the fact that she is helplessly and hopelessly in love with Raphael—even if they have nothing in common other than explosive chemistry.

But when Asta starts digging for answers, she sets off a chain of events that no one could have foreseen. Now her love for Raphael will either save the world...or destroy it.

I am going to start this review off with some of the things I really enjoyed about DESIRING A DEMON. I loved the conflict part of the storyline. It was believable and the danger felt real. I really liked getting to meet Gabriel. It was just a tiny glimpse, but I can't WAIT to read his story when it comes to be his turn. I enjoyed the update on Zerach and Isadora's relationship and their happy news. The secondary characters are all there and like book one, they are a great addition to the story.

Unfortunately I didn't feel like DESIRING A DEMON was as involved as book one was. I know we learned a little bit about both Raphael and Astaroth in TRUSTING AN ANGEL, but I still didn't feel like I really got to know them as well as I knew Zerach and Isadora by the end of the book, especially Asta. There is SO much to her character and I really wanted to learn more about her past. The relationship was of course hot between the couple during their sex scenes, but I didn't feel the heat outside the bedroom. I know they had a love connection, but I didn't feel it as strongly as I did with the other couple.

DESIRING A DEMON felt more like a filler book than a full on love story. I wasn't totally sold on it, but I'm still interested in the series and I will still read book three.

I gave it 3/5 stars
