Book 3 of Deadly Angels
Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance


Ivak Sigurdsson is dead...well, sort of. Guilty of the sin of lust, he's been given an unusual penance: spend eternity as a Viking Vampire Angel, or Vangel, fighting Lucipires, Satan's vampire demons on earth. Now sequestered in Angola Prison as a "spiritual advisor," Ivak is finding all these centuries of celibacy depressing, to say the least. But then, along comes southern belle Gabrielle Sonnier. Is she a reward for his good deeds, or a temptation sent to rattle his lustsome brain?


Gabrielle, a lawyer, begs Ivak to help get her brother out of prison. Aided by the Cajun LeDeux family and their chief looney bird, Tante Lulu, Ivak reluctantly agrees. And while he alternately tries to seduce and save Gabrielle before the Lucipires run rampant, they both begin to wonder if it's really only lust, or something more.

KISS OF TEMPTATION, A Deadly Angels book is #3 in the amazingly talented Sandra Hill's intriguing series that gives the readers a triple shot of dangerous. The series features Vikings that were transformed by a higher power into vampires that are Angels. The good guys (St. Mike's crew) are called Vangels, while the bad guys (Lucifer's crew) are called Lucipires. The conflict is a very familiar one, the age old battle between good and evil.

Long ago—a thousand years to be exact—the seven Viking brothers angered God because of their many sins and were judged accordingly. Sentenced to do penance for their miscellaneous crimes ( the seven deadly sins) , the naughty Sigurdson brothers are still working off their sentence by fighting the good fight against the evil Lucies. Along the way these sexy bad boys are sure to redeem themselves and find true love with some luscious ladies. After all, that's the way it works in the magical land of romance.

Ivak Sigurdson's sin was lust. And his latest assignment er...punishment is to work as a minister at the Angola prison. All that celibacy is about to drive the lustsome Viking crazy, when the answer to his wet dreams walks into his life. Gabrielle needs help to get her big brother freed from his life sentence at the prison. Somebody must be listening to her prayers. Could it be that St. Jude and St. Michael are in cahoots?

Gabrielle gets some much needed help from that crazy Cajun LeDeux family. Longtime fans are sure to remember this zany family. Tante Lulu steals the show in this one. Her charming witticisms had me laughing throughout the whole story. Ivak has his hands full trying to protect Gabrielle, rein in Tante Lulu and kick some Lucipire butt. Amidst all the chaos he is fighting his desire for Gabrielle and makes an unforgivable mistake when he is blessed with a very special gift.

This book was wonderful. The wacky characters made me laugh all through the book. It was fun watching Ivak fight his sizzling attraction to Gabrielle and then lose the fight and fall in love. It made me hurt, right along with Gabrielle, when Ivak broke her heart. Thanks for the laughs and the heartfelt emotions, Ms Hill. I loved this one and am looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.

Highly recommended to readers who enjoy some laughs along with their romance.
