A Little Bit Of Angel Lust

Sammael--call him Sam--was an angel once. An angel of Death. But the dispassionate, watch-from-above thing just wasn't working for him when it meant watching evil torture innocent souls day in and day out. It might have cost him his wings, but these days he gets to apply the direct method on the bad guys. Problem is, what's making his life difficu

Yes you have!

This book has such a perfect bad-fallen-angel anti-hero, OMG!

He is bad. He doesn't care about it.
He doesn't plan to change, it's just the way he is.

She wants to kill him.
She doesn't care what it'll take to do it.

I've been thinking how to write this review and I realise this is gonna be a gushing one, and probably totally idiotic because I just want to say this is BRILLIANT and I completely and totally LOVE this book!

One of the BEST PNR books I have ever read! Seriously!

You'll definitely Fall for Cynthia Eden's Angel Betrayed!

Sammael was once an Angel of Death until the day he could no longer stand by while innocent lives were being taken, and for that – he Fell. Centuries’ walking the earth as a Fallen has taught Sam two things; you can’t trust anyone and the bad guys aren’t just the humans and demons that walk beside him.

With sexy Fallen Angels, and a sultry half-succubus, the pages steam from page one.

This is one of those novels that stuck with me long after I read it. I kept having daydreams about my own Fallen Angel, because, wow, Sammael is one sexy hero. The shadowy image of his black wings is such a nice touch. He’s a Fallen, and he’s one of those bad boys who doesn’t care about anything. But when Seline dances into his life, he realizes that it kind of sucks no

Sam is a fallen angel, he used to be the Angel of Death but he fell because he refused to atone for taking the lives of men who deserved it and now centuries later he is a powerful being and Seline the heroine needs his help.

Of course Seline is bait for him, she is a succubus who can drain energy from others by just a kiss but Sam is no fool and catches her and they strike a deal, she will help him get his brother Az, who has recently fallen. Seline wants freedom, she hates her demon side and is

His tongue licked her lips and stroked inside her mouth. Slow. Easy. As if he were sampling her. Her tongue slipped to meet his. To taste. To want. When he pulled back, she had to fight to keep her hands off him. His gaze studied her a moment, and she bared dared to breathe. "I'm not human," he finally agreed, his voice a deep rumble. "But neither are you, sweetheart. Neither are you."

Wow! I knew I would enjoy this book, but I had no idea just how much I would LOVE it. Cynthia Eden has quickly

WOW! Just WOW!!!

This is by far, my best experience with Cynthia Eden so far. The story offers bad-ass hero, tough heroine, viscious (and pretty f*cked up) villains, terrifying hellhounds (!), a scorching hot romance, and all around non-stop action. It keeps me awake because I can't stop reading it (even on the bus!).

This series intrigued me because the hero is not the "typical" hero. I mean, sure, we have bad-ass heroes in this kind of book, but Sammael (and the hero for the next book,
Action-packed, steamy, really entertaining story. I liked that the dialog and brief sentences revealed intentions, characterization and world building, instead of long narrative and internal monologues. It made for a very fast-paced reading and I’d like to read another installment.
HERO is a Rogue, a death angel fallen to earth because he took punishment in his hands. Powerful and ruthless, he doesn’t hesitate in eliminating his enemies, therefore he can’t understand why he wants to keep the sus

Oh...Cynthia Eden you did it again.I just can't resist reading your books.Once again here I am giving 5 stars to an incredible book.Angel Betrayed is an amazing addition to The Fallen series.Since Angel of Darkness I've been patiently waiting for Sam's story and finally I read it!!!

Growing up under the watchful eye of a punishment angel, Saline has been using her succubus gifts against the wicked since she was a teenager. But her latest mark is someone more powerful than she has ever encountered. Sammael is a fallen angel, capable of killing with just one touch. He sees through the wiles that usually work on other men --and quickly she realizes he could be the way to get her out from under Rogziel's thumb.

Thanks to her succubus gifts, a physical relationship develops right
Wow, this one turn up to be so good. Better than the first, Angel of Darkness.
Really love Sammael aka Sam. He still evil till the end, the fact that he fall in love with Seline don't change his devilish character a little bit.

Favorite quote :

“Angels . . .” Sam shook his head. “Sometimes, they’re just too damn cocky. Just because they’re high up on the food chain, it doesn’t mean they can’t still get eaten.”

Lucky, I got Angel in Chains (The Fallen, #3) by Cynthia Eden from netgalley. Woohooo, can't wait to read Az' story. Even I still prefer
Loved Cynthia Eden books. This series is soooo good!! Can't wait to read the next.

Angel Betrayed is how paranormal romance should be! Fast furious and sexy! Over 6 years I have read tons of paranormal romance and have enjoyed a many of them, but as the years have gone by I find it harder to come upon true romance in the stories. Cynthia Eden hits the nail on the head with this one. Get ready for an emotional ride with characters you can read over and over again. My hats are off to you Cynthia and I CANT WAIT FOR THE REST!!!

I have never been an angel fan, but I absolute loved
Wow. Just wow. I started reading Angel Betrayed fairly late at night and was resentful when I had to set it down at 3am to get some sleep. I couldn’t wait to get back to it! Seline had me intrigued from the beginning. She’s not your average heroine. As a half succubus/half fallen angel, she isn’t out to save the world, she’s just trying to save her own ass. When she is sent to kill Sam, the biggest and baddest Other around, she sees her chance to finally be free of the Other that commands her. I ...more

So, I liked Sam in Angel of Darkness, Cynthia's first book in the 'Fallen' series. Yeah, I know, I know...he's bad. But really, he's not all bad...I knew that Sam had redeeming qualities and I was anxiously awaiting this book so that I could find out what they were.

I really like this series. I enjoy the bad, fallen angels - what girl doesn't like a bad boy? It's really no wonder angels feel NO emotion - how else could one be an angel of death? Sam's biggest downfall was that he DID f

ARC received from NetGalley

3 1/2 stars - Angel Betrayed is a story about a powerful fallen angel who falls in love with a beautiful half incubus girl. Sammael, known better as Sam, was once an angel of death. His orders were not to interfere, but to bring death to those who were on the "list." His job was not to judge or to feel anything regarding the deaths that he brought to various people. After many senseless deaths of children and women by brutal means, Sam decided that he woul

I am a big fan of Cynthia Eden, she is a master storyteller and her books are always memorable. I have read and loved her Night Watchers books and her Midnight books and was thrilled to see her enter the world of angels. This first book in this series, Angel of Darkness, introduced us to this world and once again affirmed my love for Cynthia. We meet the hero for Angel Betrayed, well I am not sure I would call him that, but we do meet Sam in the first book. He was an enigma for me at first, beca ...more

Freedom is so close Seline can almost taste it. One last job, that’s it and she can finally be away from those that raised her. Killing Sammael won’t be an easy mark. He’s smart, doesn’t trust anyone and she doesn’t know what he is or what will kill him.

Sammael has been an angel of death for centuries. Now as a fallen angel he’s just as formidable and can still kill with a simple touch. Seline is hiding something and he’s sure of it. She may not know who he is, but he’s not sure about what she i
Sam is AWESOME! Unrepentant, powerful, arrogant, but caring and protective. I enjoy Ms. Eden's twists in the stories, and I loved Sammael, in all his grandeur. I didn't particularly relate with the female lead (whose name I've already forgotten ><) and I can't really buy the whole "I didn't know, wasn't told, I was mislead etc" routine she kept pulling. At 30 years of age, a mortal would have done more research into his/her family tree and their health issues, than she did.. really? how pl ...more

This one didn't really work all that great for me. I had a hard time buying into the relationship. For most of the book these 2 hated each other, yet slept together. It seemed like at every turn they kept telling the other how they couldn't trust the other one. Then all of a sudden after the action and things seemed resolved they couldn't seem to sacrifice fast enough to be together.

While I like the world this book is set in and some of the secondary characters, I hope the next book is better t

I'm not sure why I let myself get behind on some of my favorite authors, but I do. I just don't have the time to read that I'd like to have. That's why I love our clearing off the shelves post, I can get some of my older books read!

This month I am getting one step closer to being caught up with Cynthia Eden. Of course I'm still way behind on her so I'm not making that much progress.

Baby steps.

Fantastic Series!

Do not make the same mistake that I made! I was thinking that since I had recently read a couple of other authors Fallen Angels books, that I was ready for something different. Well! THIS SERIES BY CYNTHIA EDEN IS THAT SOMETHING DIFFERENT!! It is written so well, with every story having a different angle (or is that angel? Lol), each of which was not what I expected at all!!!! I flew through the books (pun intended) until the last one. I didn’t want to read it because it was THE

3.5 of it were definitely 4 star worthy, but it took me quite a while to get into the book. I honestly wasn't really feeling the first half of it, but the second half was really good. The not knowing who to trust and everyone having their own agenda and not being honest was...ugh...but when we got into the sacrifices and the emotions and choosing sides, I really liked it. There was some hotness, though not my kind, but overall it was worth the read, I'm not sure if I'm going to con ...more

So I took a break from reading this then came back. This second story in the Fallen series expands on the Angel storyline begun in Angel of Darkness.

Sam we meet in the previous book. He was somewhat of a shady/bad boy/fallen who embraced his darker side. Seline is a succubus and needs Sam for reasons of her own. Neither one trusts the other but they are powerfully sexually attracted to one another.

There is so much going on in this book and it is a full length novel. The action literally does no
