I also ran into a lot of people as my eyes bugged out, so that may or may not have been a cause.
Sweet Peril is something I was freaking out about back in the summer. I had heard it wasn't for sure going to be published and I... I couldn't handle it. If it wasn't going to go through, I was going to slap the nearest sexy person I saw. It had to get published and THANK THE HEAVENS IT DID! This is a series you don't want to miss. Dear God, no. If you don't read it, you have not claimed a part of your soul yet.
It's that serious.
Let's just say Kaidan Rowe blew our minds.
A recap of Sweet Evil? Here it is.
Embrace the Forbidden
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?
This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull towards danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaiden Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
Ahem, I don't know about you but that summary made me want to read it, pronto. And no, of course it wasn't because my daddy warned me about boys like this. *coughs awkwardly* Why not read about one if I can't (YET. Yes Dad, I said YET!) experience one? Lemme tell you-it was worth every page.
Excited now? I am, and I already know what it looks like!
Here it is!
Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father-polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. She'd been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there's Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soons becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?
(Oh I can't believe I'm doing this... But it's going to bug me. So here goes.
There's a grammatical error in there. It was SO CLOSE. That last sentence... someone doesn't correlate with their.)
But oh. Oh. Oh Lordy I need a fan. Did I just read "steamiest of temptations" and "Anna and Kaidan" in the same sentence? It's going to be good. And that cover? My spaz in my high school explains it all. It is beyond words. I will kiss it the moment I get my paws on it.
