Blurb: King Zagan, Commander of the legions of the damned and one of the higher echelon in the Underworld, never fancied a mate. Demons weren’t that way inclined. But when Botis met the Archangel Raziel and their relationship actually worked, Zagan was intrigued. Of course, it wasn’t as though he planned on claiming anyone, but tangling in the sheets with a forbidden angel was a vice he could and would enjoy. Or so he thought.
Anael has always considered himself the annoying younger brother of angels like Raziel. As the angel of love, passion and sexuality, he could see love connections that others couldn’t. When he saw his connection with Zagan he was so excited. Not only was he part of the big “Mating Scheme” devised by Head Office, but he snagged King Zagan, the secret crush he’s had for centuries. Now if only things could go right for them both.
A marriage proposal from Lady Zoltus is just the first sign of trouble for the new couple. When Lucifer sticks his nose in and detains Zagan in the Underworld, leaving Anael to roam earth alone, more secrets are uncovered. After a confrontation Anael starts to question if anything he does is right. Will these two ever find their HEA?
Review: Each book in the Balance collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Anael is the angel of love and passion. He is one sexy dancer at a club that needs to get shut down. He sees the threads of connection with everyone. So when he sees he is connected to the one demon he has always wanted, well he is overjoyed to say the least. That is until the demon runs from him after finding out. Way to shake a person up.
Zagan is an asshat. He is a demon king and enjoys playing around and kicking ass. So what is he supposed to do after finding out he is mated to an angel. Running like a scared rabbit might not have been the best thing. These two are going to need a bit of help.
There is something about the way that Lisa tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.
I love the paranormal tone and the little bit of twists that come with it. Who knew that Lucifer would be such a blast, or have a friendship going on with an angel. Lets just say, he is the help they needed.
I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book, although it did not flow as well as it should have. I don’t really know what the issue was I had with it, but I could tell that there was something bugging me about it. Other than my little issue with it, this is one hell of a story.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
