Author: Stephani Hecht
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Characters: Lachlan, Jeremy
Sub-Genre: Paranormal Romance, Series
Sometimes, the only thing more terrifying than a brutal, paranormal civil war, can be having to face who you really are.
Since birth there was one thing that Lachlan was certain of, that he was a warlock. He’d dreamed of one day being the most powerful healer of his childhood coven, but sometimes the fates can be real bitches and his life took a complete different direction. Not only was his coven and most of his family destroyed by the Ninth, but the evil coven kept him captive for years.
Now free of the coven, Lachlan finds out that he’s part angel, something that makes him more hunted than ever. When he finds himself drawn to a quiet, yet sweet vampire named Jeremy, Lachlan worries that his feelings will put the other man in danger.
Lachlan’s worst fears come true when the coven and clan come under attack, putting Jeremy in harm’s way. As Lachlan comes to the realization that the only way to save the man is to embrace his angel side, he can no longer hide from the truth.
Will Lachlan save Jeremy in time, or will the war claim yet another victim?
There is something about Stephani Hecht’s books that really call to me as a reader. I love her creative storylines and her heroes are interesting, sexy men. She’s still a semi-new author for me, and I have to admit that I’ve enjoyed every story I’ve read by her. Her easy style of writing and addictive storytelling ability really pulls me into her stories and hooks my interest until the very end.
I really liked both heroes, Jeremy and Lachlan. Lachlan is the bad-ass, sexy alpha type male that I couldn’t help but be fascinated with. He’s honorable, likeable and has a huge protective streak for the ones he cares about. Once he decided to give into his feelings and attraction to Jeremy, all bets were off. He’s got that divide and conquer hotness about him that both Jeremy and I find very attractive.
Although I liked Lachlan, I adored Jeremy. He’s not as strong as the others, and because of that has a tendency not to believe in his abilities. He’s had to fight for everything he’s gotten and has an inner and outer strength that he doesn’t always realize he has. I also liked his utter sweetness and he has a sexy nature that really jumped out at me. I loved how determined he is and I thought he and Lachlan were perfect together.
The action and romance in Blood of an Angel will surely satisfy new and faithful fans of Ms. Hecht’s. This was one of those books that once I started it, I couldn’t put down. I really liked all of the characters and the continuous fight in the paranormal civil war. Blood of an Angel is the fifteenth (Seventeenth counting the prequel and a short) book in the Drone Vampire Chronicles and it’s written so well that it could probably be read as a stand-alone book. But to full understand these characters and their fight, I highly recommend reading all of the Drone Vampire books. Believe me, once you start, you’ll become immediately hooked on the series.
