Quote from Warrior Angel
“Get out of my damn way, you big oaf,” the woman bit out just as the demon charged them. Einar turned towards her. Was she speaking to him?

So what’s this book about?
Warrior Angel is the third book (approx 149 pages) in Ms Heaton’s contemporary paranormal romance series – Her Angel: Bound Warriors – and is set in modern day London.
This book is a revised, extremely extended and re-released version of the novella Her Warrior Angel and is now a story with even more angel goodness (or wickedness if you prefer).
If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you’ll know that I don’t post spoilers or reveal plot twists in my book reviews, so here’s what the official blurb has to say about the story:
A powerful hunter angel, Einar is on a mission to discover why one of his kind was working with demons, but it isn’t going well… until he finds one of the demons stalking a beautiful woman. When the male attacks, Einar can’t stop himself from saving her, even when he knows Heaven will hold it against him—the alluring, lethally seductive woman is half demon.
Taylor vowed long ago to protect her city from the lowest demons and she sure as hell isn’t about to let an angel waltz in and take over, and she’s definitely not about to fall in love with him, even if he is gorgeous. Determined to do her job as a hunter, she convinces the dangerously sensual warrior to team up with her, but resisting the attraction that blazes between them soon becomes impossible.
As the mission leads them deep into London’s underworld and desire flares white-hot between them, can they stop the flames of their passion from consuming them? And can a love so forbidden ever have a happy ending?
You don’t need to have read any of the previous books in the Her Angel: Bound Warriors series to enjoy Warrior Angel as Ms Heaton weaves any relevant information about the world and past adventures that the reader needs into this story. I can also confirm that the romance aspect of this tale is concluded to my satisfaction by the end of the book in Ms Heaton’s signature Happy Ever After style.

So, what did I like about it?
I’m a big fan of Ms Heaton’s writing style (I’m sure I’ve mentioned that before lol!); it’s the way she creates a believable paranormal world and then packs it full with multifaceted characters – even the supernatural ones have very real human foibles – then weaves their stories around an engaging background plot that just draws me in and keeps me hooked.
I really liked that both our main characters are hunters; protectors of the innocent and fight for those unable to fight for themselves. The fight scenes in this book are outstanding and I love that our heroine can hold her own against demons bigger and stronger than her.
Which leads me on beautifully to one of the reasons why I love Ms Heaton’s books so much – the sex; she makes the most explicit sexual scenes very romantic (I think it takes a very talented writer to accomplish this), the erotic interludes in this story are beautifully balanced with heartfelt imagery and poignant internal dialogue from our main romantic pair; it’s the tender insights into Einar and Taylor’s inner fears, their doubts and their emotional vulnerability that captivated my heart.
This story was a page turner for me and I really enjoyed reading it. I loved the build-up of sexual anticipation and I got caught up with Einar and Taylor’s romantic shenanigans (who wouldn’t *blush*) but I also loved the edge-of-your-seat fight scenes that got my adrenaline pumping. I shed a tear or two during the tender moments and I found myself chuckling out loud at the humour and banter. Warrior Angel had me gripped from the first page to the last and I couldn’t stop reading!
So, ummm, was there anything I disliked about it?
Well, I obviously enjoyed the book as I rated it 5 stars, but I feel that I should mention a couple of things.
This is the third book in a four book series, and as such, there is mention of a continuing mystery that gently links all four books which involves some old angel comrades of our hero, Einar – Apollyon from book 1 Dark Angel, Lukas from book 2 Fallen Angel and Rook from book 4 Bound Angel. However, for those of you like me who HATE huge cliff-hangers, rest assured, Ms Heaton doesn’t leave us hanging, the demon mystery in this book is solved and the romance between him and Taylor is happily concluded in Ms Heaton’s signature style.
So, basically what I’m saying is…
I really loved this book. It had everything that I look for in a great paranormal romance; it made me smile, cry and feel all warm & fuzzy inside, my heart was pumping during the fight scenes, there were great well written erotic thrills and tons of romantic gestures so satisfy my soppy side.
As with all of Ms Heaton’s books, due to the graphic violence and sexual content – it’s definitely got both – I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by content of this nature and enjoy reading stories about conspiracies, the drive to hunt out the truth, protection of the innocent and justice for the guilty but Warrior Angel is definitely a must read for those of you, like me, who adore tales about soul saving love with oodles of fire and passion.
