Angel in Chains, book three in The Fallen series, is a PNR by author Cynthia Eden, and is an entertaining bayou party with all the paranormal bag of tricks you can throw your beads at!
As a fallen Angel of Death, Azrael is cursed to walk the earth alone in search of redemption. One night, as he wanders the streets of New Orleans, he discovers a woman surrounded by panther shifters. No longer able to contain the anger simmering within, Az summons his dark powers and attacks, determined to protect this innocent human from certain death.
Only Jade Pierce is no delicate flower. She's spent years learning to survive and fight the evil forces sent by her ex-lover who refuses to let her go. But after seeing Az in action, she figures she could use a little supernatural help. And so she plans a course of seduction guaranteed to arouse his interest and his angelic passions...
Our story picks up as Azrael, the Angel of Death, is walking around minding his own business and stumbles upon a gal being mugged down a dark alley near the French Quarter. Now, I've been to NOLA and yeah some parts are a bit sketchy, but this time it's not the humans doing the mugging. It's a pack of wolves, on the hunt for the packmaster's gal Jade. Although that gal wants no part of the pack, the wolves seem to not understand and want to force her back to the wolfy side.
Jade is feisty as heck and won't back down or submit to the tyranny of a deranged pack, all she wants is freedom (which William Wallace can totally understand!) and the right to choose how she will live her life. But story being what it is, Jade is our lady in distress and Azrael is the Angel who just happens to be in the right place at the right time. Then we're off into a steamy bayou adventure across the Louisiana countryside and back again!
Though this couple's struggle is not an easy one, the best love stories never are and they become united against a common foe and lead the way to an epic battle. Plot twists and turns keep the adventure going while romance heats up the pages!
Angel in Chains is a fun read that's enjoyable for all PNR fans looking for some darker angels that walk the line between goodboy and badboy. You can easily pick up from this point, as I did, and not feel lost in the series whatsoever!
