Adrian Alistair Rohan lost his faith, and now, a dedicated member of the depraved Heavenly Host, he loses himself in his only pleasure: the seduction and debauchery of beautiful women. Rich, charming and devastatingly skilled in the arts of love, he never fails in his conquests…until Charlotte Spenser.

Charlotte is facing a desolate, passionless future, none of which matters to Adrian, who imagines her a toy until better prey arrives. But beneath her drab exterior, Charlotte is a woman as enchanting as she is brilliant and, lured into Adrian's world, soon she becomes the seducer, and he the seduced…. 

So what did I think?

To begin with the hero Adrian Alistair did not disappoint. Selfish, spoilt, totally charming if he wants to be, ruthless. He doesn’t want to care about anyone, because he is afraid of losing loved ones.  I liked Caroline because she was so sensible trying to stay in control yet totally out of her league with this man.  I enjoyed their conversations. The sex was steamy. I thought the secondary romance was an interesting story, (worthy of its own book, with more depth, romantic feeling, to be honest, than the romance between Adrian and Caroline)Yet I found myself skimming those secondary bits because of the chemistry between Adrian and Caroline. I just wanted to keep reading about their encounters .

That a woman like Caroline (30 year-old virgin) ends up at the party of the Heavenly Host and her reasons for being there, struck me as being a bit far fetched.  An evil villain is a part of every book in this series, but this particular villain left me rather cold.

Final opinion:

Despite some of the above mentioned points I actually loved the book and read it in one go.  So a definite keeper!





Best Quote:

“So there is the question, my precious. Do we leave you a virgin? Or do we finish this properly?…….

“I’m still a virgin?” she asked.
