Frannie Cavanaugh has always been a bit of a loner. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance, even her closest friends. That is, until Luc Cain enrolls in her school. He's hot, sarcastic, and dangerous—and Frannie can't seem to stay away.
What she doesn't know is that Luc is on a mission. Because Frannie isn't exactly ordinary. She possesses a skill so unique that the king of Hell himself has taken notice, and he's sent Luc to claim Frannie's soul. It should be easy: All he has to do is get her to sin, and Luc is as tempting as they come.
Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and he's just started making progress when the angel Gabriel shows up. Gabe will do anything to keep Luc from getting what he came for, and his angelic charm might just be enough to keep Frannie on the right path.
It isn't long before Luc and Gabe find themselves fighting for more than just Frannie's soul. But if Luc fails to win her over, there will be Hell to pay . . . for all of them.
First off, yay for NorCal writers! (Okay, so maybe central Cali, but still. Makes me grin :) Anyhow, this was a great book, with lots of action and other yumminess. I really enjoyed the world Desrochers has created, and I must admit Luc was who I found myself totally rooting for. He made the book for me, really. I'm not usually the time to go for the dark and dangerous guy, but he was funny and interesting. Of course, this might have something to do with the fact that we got his side of the story here, with Gabe being relegated to the background somewhat without a portion of the book told in his words. I hope the rumors are true that this will be different in the next book! Anyhow, Frannie was also an intriguing character, but about half-way through she gains some distance from the reader. As in, she no longer is expressing herself as clearly, making the reader unable to fully understand her reasoning/feelings. Other than that, this book was HOT, and quite enjoyable. Can't wait for the next two!!
