Cast out of Heaven for a crime he didn’t commit, Lukas has spent three years searching for a way to prove his innocence and slowly falling for a beautiful mortal female. When things take a turn for the worse, he seeks solace in the bottom of a bottle and ends up finding it in Annelie’s arms. But one moment of Heaven becomes one of sheer Hell when his wings make an unexpected appearance. Now, he’s in danger of losing not only his duty, but the woman he loves.
Annelie fell for Lukas the moment he walked into her bar and she fell hard. The tall, sensual blond sets her heart on fire with his otherworldly green eyes and wicked smile, so when one kiss leads to something more, seizing her chance and Lukas with both hands seems like a great idea… until morning rolls around and she discovers he’s not the man she thought he was—he’s an angel.
Lukas will stop at nothing to prove both his innocence and his love for Annelie, but when he discovers who framed him and she ends up caught in the crossfire, will he be strong enough to protect her? And can Annelie vanquish her doubts and fears to claim the heart of her fallen angel?
No cliffhangers. No cheating. Just passionate paranormal romance books with a guaranteed happily forever after!

You don’t need to have read the previous book to enjoy Fallen Angel. Felicity weaves any relevant information about the world and past adventures that the reader needs into this story. However, it would be an advantage.
So, what did I like about Fallen Angel?
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of Ms Heaton’s writing style. It’s the way she creates a believable paranormal world and then packs it with multifaceted characters. Even the supernaturals have very real human foibles. Then Felicity weaves their stories around an engaging background plot that draws me in and keeps me reading.
I really liked that we join Annelie three years after Lukas entered her life as a patron of her pub.
Insta-love stories are not my favourite trope. I struggle to connect to plots like that. However, this relationship has been blossoming for three years. It already felt comfortable and ready for the next step.
Which leads me on beautifully to one of the reasons why I love Felicity’s books so much.
The sex.;-) Felicity makes the most explicit sex scenes feel very romantic. I think it takes a very talented writer to accomplish this. The erotic interludes in this story are balanced beautifully with heartfelt imagery and poignant internal dialogue from our main romantic pair. It’s these tender insights into Lukas and Annelie’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 their romantic shenanigans (who wouldn’t *blush*). However, I also loved the edge-of-your-seat fight scene that got my adrenaline pumping. Shedding a tear or two during the tender and sad moments. Plus, I found myself chuckling out loud at the humour and banter. Fallen Angel had me gripped from the first page to the last and I couldn’t stop reading!
So, was there anything I didn’t like about it?
Well, I obviously enjoyed the book as I rated it 5 stars. However, I feel that I should mention a couple of things.
Firstly, my religious beliefs and faith meant that I found it tricky to relate to Annelie’s dilemma about “loving an angel”. Consequently, struggling with her fear of “going to Hell” for her feelings for Lukas or getting him in trouble with Heaven because of his. The whole angel fantasy romance is relatively new to me and not really something that I personally fantasize about. Although reading this series, I’m getting there. 😉
Secondly, this is the second book in a four-book series. Therefore, there’s a continuing background mystery story. It involves Rook, an old angel comrade of Lukas and Apollyon’s, and Rook’s lady love, Isadora. This thread is left to continue in subsequent books. However, for those of you like me who HATE huge cliff-hangers, rest assured, Felicity doesn’t leave us hanging. Lukas’ good name is restored and the romance between him and Annelie is all happily concluded in her signature style.
Basically, what I’m saying is…
I really loved this paranormal romance tale. It had everything that I look for in a gripping read. Fallen Angel made me smile, cry and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I loved the well written erotic thrills, heart-pumping fight scenes and the beautiful romantic gestures added to the mix.
This book has graphic violence and explicit sex as well as some darker themes. Therefore, I’d only recommend this book to adults who are OK reading material of this nature.
I’d recommend Fallen Angel to adults who enjoy reading stories about conspiracies and finding the truth in a pack of lies. Fallen 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.
