Overview

Haunted by his mother’s betrayal, Belen McLaine surrendered to his demonic half long ago. For centuries, he’s roamed, doing all he can to corrupt those he encounters. But Belen’s life changes when a little Yuletide fun goes wrong, and the one woman he can’t stay away from is suddenly in need of his protection. Unable to cast her aside, he finds himself on a deadly path to love.

Faith Winters shared one glorious date with Belen complete with fireworks, but he stayed away until the night of her brutal attack. As danger escalates, he becomes her only safety net. Shared passion gives way to something deeper, hotter, than she’s ever known before. Yet Faith has no idea her greatest threat is the very man who holds her heart.

For Belen, even if it means hurting Faith, he must not succumb to love. If he fails, his father’s curse promises he’ll take Faith’s life.

I love when a "bad guy" falls in love.  They make such a great story as they learn to be better people and come to grips with their past.  Belen is not your traditional bad boy.  He really does do some bad things, and one of those bad things sets off the chain of events that leads to his eventual redemption. Belen was a very interesting character.  He chooses to follow his darker side.  He thinks his lighter side is tainted by his mother's abandonment and he walks away from it.  When this decisions puts Faith in danger because of his actions, he begins to second guess everything he's done.  The catch, he really doesn't want to be a better person at first.  It was great! Seeing Belen with Faith was like watching a different person than when he was with everyone else.  She really was his angel and showed him how powerful good could really be.  He is determined to walk away from it all, but when his love puts her life in danger, he needs to make the final decision of whether or not her life is worth his immortality. There was quite a nice little twist in this story that only made it work even better.  Again, I loved the fact that it wasn't love or lust at first sight.  The characters had a history that the story really built on and it adds a layer of reality to a paranormal that makes it work so well. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

One of goodness, one of darkness. Belen aches for Faith's decency, the inherent goodness that fills her soul but he had thrown away his light and let the dark side take over centuries ago. Faith believes in Belen so deeply she will face down an evil demon to gain what she wants.... Love. I felt my heart tearing in two for Belen as he tries so desperately to keep Faith safe without corrupting her and all the while it's her who is there to save him. This series, this family, will sneak right into your reader heart and plop right down with huge smiles on their faces! *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review*
