Beauty Awakened by Gena Showalter

His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the heavens, eternally damned.

Beauty AwakenedShe is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo’s deliverance…and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola’s life-even if he has to sacrifice his own….


As soon as I read the prologue I knew this was going to be a tear jerker – and I was correct goddammit! Who can resist the tale about an unloved boy who grows into an equally unloved man?

Raise your hands please ladies… come on… and you at the back… so now that we are all in this together I’ll continue…

This is the tale of Koldo and Nicola. Koldo is one of the Sent Ones, a little like an angel, but different in the sense that he was born to parents rather than made by the big man upstairs. He’s been around for a hell of a long-time, has a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas and is terribly angry and upset about the fact that nobody wuvs him. Nicola on the other hand is human and a pretty frail and pathetic one at that. She suffers from a heart defect and doesn’t have long to live.

And yes – the drama descends pretty early on in the book.
