Recommends it for: Paranormal romance readers
Why I'm giving 5 stars?
Simple... for 5 motives...

1) It's well written. Was a pleasure read this story.
2) I like (a lot) the main female character. Rebecca was really a strong female voice. Love when I hear her voice on this story.
3) Saul capture my heart. He is the perfect hero... strong, tormented and deeply in love!
4) The loving story is so beautiful! I was overwhelmed with the love... it's almost detectable, and reach me every time I read about them.
5) Perfect end, after a perfect action sce

A truly wonderful read. I adore the tortured soul that is Saul the Bastard. He is the perfect tormented angel fallen from grace--raw, sexy, fabulous! Five stars!

You ever heard of a fallen angel in love with a demon princess? Would you like to? Before you answer, let me tell you that the angel, Saul the Bastard, is probably the hunkiest hero I’ve come across (excuse the expression) in a long, long time.

He’s not happy that he’s a fallen angel, but he knows he has to live as an almost-human and hope that one day he’ll redeem himself and get recalled to Heaven by being a bounty hunter who hunts evil demons. Even demon princesses called Rebecca? No, he’s hir

David Bridger is a friend of mine and this is his debut work, so of course I picked it up. However, I already knew how his writing is evocative and compelling, so I didn’t think I was risking much.

Beauty and the Bastard held some surprises for me in content, I’ll admit, since I picked it up solely based on the author and didn’t read the blurb or surrounding information too closely. This novella contains explicit sex and violence. That said, neither the sex nor the violence seemed out of place in

This review was originally posted at Vampire Book Club.

David Bridger reminds us of the redeeming power of love in his paranormal romance novella Beauty and the Bastard.

Rebecca is less than pleased about being sent to work for her uncle. Not because she hates the job or her uncle, in fact he’s her favorite. The problem is the demon heiress’ life was threatened by some desert demons after they were run out of Las Vegas by her dad. She thinks she can handle herself and doesn’t see the need for the
Ann Nibbs
This is a rattling good story of fallen angels and demons and I am delighted to say that the hero is refreshingly flawed. The graphic scenes work well, the characters are three dimensional and the writing is indicative of an experienced author who knows his way around this genre. He has the ability to tantalise, enthrall and shock at just the right intervals to keep up the pace. Short enough to read at one sitting, it is nevertheless long enough to tell the full story and leave the reader satisf ...more

I'd been looking forward to this book for a while, since I'd had the privilege if reading one of David's books in early draft form. This, his debut, fulfilled my expectations. An excellent paranormal romance, with believable characters. One of the subplots I particularly enjoyed was the interaction between Rebecca and her cousin John.

Time to start looking forward to his next book!

I really enjoyed it. Normally not the kind of book I would read, but David's writing grabs you and pulls you in. His style is fast-paced and quick-witted. He economizes the detail and rewards the reader with a hard-hitting adventure, good lovin', and wonderful characters. Great read!
Come on....these were my words as I finished the book that had so much potential. The story was ok but I wish there had been more details, more information to make it a fuller and richer story.
This is Bridger's debut novel and wow is it fantastic. I've never read anything like it before. I give it my highest recommendation. I think he's going to be a major talent in the PNR world. Bravo.

Damn, you just want to hold Saul and make everything alright for him again.
