The Demon's Desire by Kendra Leigh Castle
He’s as dark and dangerous as the storms he once commanded…and she can’t get him out of her heart.Dru has spent two thousand years fighting to keep the people of Terra Noctem safe. In all that time, she's only opened her heart to one man, with disastrous results. But when her city takes in a group of renegade Fallen, she finds herself drawn to the brooding and tormented Meresin, despite the fact that he seems to be the least redeemable of them all. When his instability hits a breaking point, Meresin’s only chance at survival is a perilous journey into a place from which few ever return. What he never expected was that confronting his demons would mean risking not only his future, but Dru's as well...and that one stubborn vampire might give him back not just hope…but his heart.
Meresin lives with the other fallen angels who have taken refuge in Terra Noctem. The vampire let them live there in peace. Meresin is different than the other fallen angels and has anger problems. He also is unpredictable as the storms he can create. He has become a danger to himself and the others. The only person who can reach him is Dru a 2000 year old vampire. She can manage him somewhat and tries her best to fight her feelings for him. He tries his best to ignore her. She has had her heart broke before and he doesn't want to get close to anyone. He goes to far and is told it's time to visit a place from his past. He will either come out a changed man or die trying. Dru goes with him to help keep him grounded and to guard her won life. They both may lose their hearts and lives on this dangerous mission.
Meresin is the sexy fallen angel no one can get close to. He would rather just stay away from everyone than chance losing his temper or getting to close to them. Even his fellow fallen angels stay away for the most part. He has been through so much and thinks no one could care about him. He is very dangerous and one of a kind. Dru has had her heart broke before and had to do a hard thing. She is very hardworking but stays on the sidelines. She really cares about people and as she even will say it is just her nature to care.
I really loved this book. It gives a different twist to angels and I loved getting to know the main characters. Both have pieces that seem to be missing even if they don't know it. They each would be so great together but both are scared and they both have bad timing as you will see. Their attraction seems to come out at the worse times. This book has action whether its Meresin fighting vampires or trying to get his life back and Dru seems to always be there for him. If you enjoy paranormal books or just a great story I recommend this one. I can't wait to read more in this series.
