THE AVON AFFAIR IS A 14-DAY AVON BOOKS REVIEW EVENT
ORGANIZED AND HOSTED BY CURRENT AND ALUMNI MEMBERS OF
THE AVON ADDICTS.
What romance reader can resist a hero who is both Viking…and vampire? In the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Sandra Hill’s exciting Deadly Angels series, Nicole Tasso, Navy SEAL is powerless to resist the “vangel” in her midst… And the mystery surrounding her thousand-year-old suitor only makes him more desirable…and more dangerous! Filled with Sandra Hill’s trademark combination of smoldering sensuality and laugh-out-loud humor, Kiss of Surrender: A Deadly Angels Book will leave paranormal and urban fantasy romance fans hungry for more from this award-winning author.
By now, hopefully, you’ve read my review of Kiss of Pride and you might be wondering why I continued on with the series. If the first in a series holds my attention, I will try the second.
I’m very glad I decided to read Kiss of Surrender. I expected a carbon copy of Kiss of Pride and that WASN’T what I got. Surprise!
This second installment had more depth and was more current and believable. The series is about 7 Viking brothers who all suffer from one of the 7 Deadly Sins. They are called Vangels (Vampire Angels). They fight against Lucifer’s demons called lucipires.
The protagonist in Kiss of Surrender is Trond, who’s sin is sloth. He is a well developed and thought out character. He’s in the Navy Seals but as a member of Norway’s Special Forces. His “love interest” is Lt Nicole Sasso. She’s a member of the Navy Weals (they work in conjunction with the Seals). The chemistry between the two is at times hot and other, funny. They work. I like them as a pair. Vangels, however, TRY to avoid breaking any of The Commandments. Something new, a paranormal love story with no sex. The Vangels do enjoy Almost Sex and find new ways to have almost sex which is giggle worthy.
As you can tell, I really enjoyed Kiss of Surrender. A good easy read. So if you’ve read Kiss of Pride and thought it was okay or were underwhelmed, try this one. You’ll be surprised.
My rating: 3.90 (yes, I’m getting that picky)
