In 1802 London, friends and society pariahs Raphael Fahlan, Michael Wyhndym and Gabriel Arden save the life of David Mallory. The grateful duke helps them regain their lost positions while the Ton calls them the Fallen Angels. Katherine Darien, a vampire, selects the threesome to serve as her protectors against the cretin who converted her. She becomes David’s lover before killing him once she meets the Angels. Katherine converts Michael into a vampire and tries to kill Rafe and Gabriel. A sister vampire Sasha saves Gabriel by changing him over while Katherine in her haste to murder Rafe, converts him into a vampire.
Two centuries later, the Fallen Angels live in New Orleans. Gabriel is a homicide detective who loves and hates Sasha while Rafe and Michael run a nightclub. They hire security specialist Montgomery “Gomery” Sinclair to insure the safety of their patrons, but the attraction between the female security specialist and Rafe is torrid. However, Katherine hates the Fallen Angles almost as much as she detests her “sire”. She sees “Gomery” as a tool to destroy at a minimum at least Rafe, her most passionate enemy of the threesome.
FALLEN ANGELS/RAFE’S HEART is a delightful vampire romance that hooks the audience from the moment Gomery throws a counterpoint jab at Rafe. The story line is loaded with action, but also provides the audience insight into the key cast members, especially Rafe. Fans of plenty of blood flowing tales need to look elsewhere. However, readers who appreciate a complex tale with horror elements interwoven into a cross-species love story will relish this book. The audience will want the romantic adventures of the other Angels told especially between Sasha and Gabriel.
