KISS OF SURRENDER
The second book in Hill’s Deadly Angels series is brimming with pulse-pounding excitement. Hill’s usual humor is apparent throughout the entire book; a Viking that is over 1,000 years old in SEAL training is particularly comical. And the heat between the main characters sizzles right off the page.
Trond Sigurdsson is in Navy SEAL training — even though he is a 1,000-year-old Vangel. A Vangel is a Viking vampire angel, created to serve penance for having committed one of the deadly sins. One of only seven, Trond’s job is to make sure demons do not prey on humans. Lt. Nicole Tasso is a WEAL, a female version of the SEALs, and a constant thorn in Trond’s side. Sassy Tassy is always in his way, trying to find out what he’s hiding. When Trond and Nicole are put on a mission that includes Nicole having to pose as a member of a terrorist harem, their chemistry ignites. Will they be able to stop the evil demons from joining with the terrorists, or will their passion compromise the mission? (AVON, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
