SUMMARY
Kari thinks a weight loss spell in an old book is worth a try. Unfortunately, while it does make her thin, the spell is a trick that unleashes a centuries old famine demon.

Fallen Guardian Angel Rahmiel once defeated the famine demon and was bound to it so he could fight it if it ever descended to the earth again. But there is the little problem of his imprisonment in ice. While the demons reappearance gets him back to Earth, what he needs to stay out of prison is a bonding ceremony with a human woman--like Kari.

Wow. I have to say that this book gives a whole new meaning to the mile high club. Sex on the edge and in the arms of an angel no less. The main characters are the hero Rahmiel and the heroine Kari.

Rahmiel is an angel that was imprisoned in ice for 8000 years and Kari is a human female who was overweight and manages to get a hold of a spell that is supposed to make her thin. I don't want to give away too much of the story but in performing the spell Kari does become thin but she manages to also summon a powerful demon and free Rahmiel from his ice prison.

Enter Hero, stage left. Rahmiel is sexy as sin (if that is even possible for a Angel, and in this case, it is). Rahmiel comes into the picture as her savior and in doing so he is also freed from his prison of ice. The sexual tension between the two is high and rises even higher as the book goes along, setting up a great tease and please. The characters in and of themselves are likable and together they become loveable and you want to see the relationship they have developed to succeed. I do feel though that the book could have been a bit spicier, though I am thinking perhaps that was part of the plan for the author to keep you wanting more.

The world building was wonderful, because I feel that the author spared no detail so basically you could actually see that world. The dialogue in the book flowed easily and made for a light read that didn't get you all bogged down in different terminology. It also begs the question, will there be a sequel? The author had enough background things happening to make you want to continue reading.

The only issue I think I had with the book was the whole take on Kari having lost the weight and struggling with eating. Perhaps that's because it's my own issues with that subject coming. But that makes Kari more real than fantasy, right? As well as making it easier to relate to her.

All in all, I give the book 3 stars for its originality, issues and spice.

If I could find an easy way to lose weight, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Wouldn't we all? So it's perfectly understandable when Kari finds a book containing a spell to lose weight—and uses it.

She loses weight while sleeping…a lot of weight. (My number one fantasy!) Unfortunately, the spell comes with a fasting demon. Is there an upside when becoming a size 4 overnight is really too good to be true? You bet. ‘Cause the spell also comes with a protecting angel named Rahmiel.

Rahmiel is a gorgeous hunk of heaven that's fallen from his flock. (Love those almost bad boys.) He's not above using manipulation to bind Kari to him in order to keep from being imprisoned in ice again. After spending eight thousand years locked away from the world, he'll do everything he can to remain free. Of course protecting Kari from the fasting demon—and the world—is just as important to Rahmiel.

Kari's spunky by nature, but realizes Rahmiel is the only thing standing between her and certain death. The fact that a certain angel sets her blood on fire doesn't hurt. And she needs all the protection she can get. Between the problems in the angelic world and her own, she and Rahmiel are truly fighting for their lives.

Ms. Aires has given us a snippet of a world filled with angels, demons and every day mortals. The story has an interesting plot, a mile-high romance, and likeable characters. So if you want your stories filled with a darker edge and grit, you might be disappointed. HER ACCIDENTAL ANGEL is a fun, sweet, fast-paced romance that keeps things on the lighter side.
