Review: Her Wicked Angel by Felicity Heaton


Title: Her Wicked Angel
Series: Her Angel, #6
Author: Felicity Heaton
Published: September 21, 2013
Format: Ebook provided for review

The King of Demons and the Devil’s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for her… until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen—a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.

He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.

Liora is a witch with a bad reputation and an obsession with fighting demons. A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeus’s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.

Caught up in a tempest of danger and soul-searing passion, can they survive against the odds and seize their forever after?


Her Wicked Angel is the first of the Her Angel series I’ve read by Felicity Heaton. I didn’t feel lost when reading this book, which is a big thing to me when I break into the middle of a series. When characters from other books made an appearance in this book, I felt there was enough explanation to keep me steady.

So on with this story! This is the story of Asmodeus and Liora. Asmodeus lives in hell and is an evil angel, the King of Demons, as he puts it. Asmodeus is seriously badass, and until this story begins he is basically a ruthless torturer and killer. He is the Devil’s right hand man, and takes pleasure in all things evil. Liora is a very powerful witch, and the Devil wants her in a bad way. Presumably to impregnate her. I tell ya, that Devil is always up to no good, right? So he sends Asmodeus to bring her to Hell, since he can’t leave.

What Asmodeus doesn’t count on is that Liora recognizes him – and she’s not afraid. Rather, she seems quite intrigued. And it’s a good thing, because he is, too. The two of them instantly fit together like the last two pieces of a puzzle. Love is definitely in the cards for them. And Asmodeus makes the difficult decision that he will not listen to the Devil, not bring Liora to him.

A lot of the book you feel like you are gearing up for an epic battle between Asmodeus and the Devil, except you don’t know how it’s going to go down. There is a constant shift in variables, and all the while it really amps up your concern that something is going to go very wrong for this couple. I really grew attached to both of them; Liora with her caring and gentle mothering ways, and Asmodeus as a newcomer to the life of goodness and seeing the mortal realm in person for the first time. Their personalities really complement each other.

He brushed the knuckles of his right hand across her face, tunnelled his fingers into her chestnut hair and grasped it tightly.  Liora gasped when he tugged her head backwards and banded his other arm around her, holding her immobile and powerless.  His hungry gaze fell to her lips.  He growled again, a husky feral sound that thrilled her, dropped his head and kissed her hard, devouring her mouth and dominating her.  She melted into him, helpless against the force of his kiss and the pleasure that swept through her in response. 
Let’s talk about sex, ok? Oh holy Hell, this book has the hot sex in spades! Asmodeus may have been inexperienced before, but as soon as he meets Liora, he is definitely making up for lost time. His exuberance is infectious, and as much as they can get it on, I want them too. They work like a well-oiled sex machine. And when it’s good, it’s good. But when it’s love, well, it’s Earth shattering. Felicity Heaton definitely doesn’t disappoint in the sexual healing category in this book. She has a real talent for making you sweat.

There are two characters in this book that continually stole the show – Romulus and Remus. They are Asmodeus’s Hellhounds, and oh-my-god, they are the funniest, most wonderful pets you’d ever hope to have. They were playful and mischievous. When they made an appearance you couldn’t help but smile, and even laugh sometimes. Sure, they might be demon dogs, but they are still dogs. And not only that, but seeing the way Asmodeus is with them, well that’s all icing on the cake.

Felicity’s writing is spot on as always. She definitely grabbed me right from the start, and I enjoyed the ride the whole way through. This book is full of drama, action, and sex – just the way I like it. There were a few spots near the end where I felt it was a bit slower, but they were still quite interesting so I can’t find anything to complain about. What this book did do, however, is make me want to go back and read the previous Her Angel books. I’m especially interested in Erin and Veiron’s story!
