The fallen angels have again risen against the Light, and the Second War in Heaven is raging. Paimon, General of Hell, yearned for a lover with the beauty of an angel and created a demon the exact replica of a celestial. He presents his creation with a powerful sword and appoints him commander of the demon forces. If Salseph returns to Hell with the sword in victory, Paimon vows to end Seph's demeaning missions of seducing human women and destroying their lives. The promise is a double-edged blade. The demons under his control abhor Salseph as much as he reviles them.

In battle, the angel Ophiel disarms Salseph and humiliates the young demon. Seph vows revenge against his foe and strikes upon the perfect plan for vengeance. He will seduce the guardian angel's charge, Gloria Landry, and at the Battle of Armageddon present soiled goods to the arrogant Ophiel in exchange for the stolen sword. When he rescues Gloria from a violent storm, she believes Salseph is her guardian angel. On their journey to the apocalyptic war, Salseph and Gloria discover that lust can become the purest love and that a bad boy can be good.

My Review:
What a delightful read, the blurb alone piqued my interest. I was very impressed by the way Ms. Swan weaves her magic story telling that captivates the reader immediately. A demon that looks like an angel how unique is that?

Salseph is beautiful so he really doesn't fit in down in Hell. The other demons hate him and he has to constantly watch his back because he can't trust them. He's tired of being a sexual being for his creator, Paimon. Besides being Paimon's lover, Seph is sent on missions to seduce women to ruin their lives. He makes the perfect tortured hero.

Glory Landry has had it tough in the love department. Her latest boyfriend wasn't a real winner. She's convinced the world is coming to an end soon and she will have missed her one true love.
Gloria and Seph meet when he comes to her aide when she is injured during a severe storm. She believes him to be her Guardian Angel and Seph doesn't bother to correct the error.

The characters have depth and personality and are easy to connect to. Seph and Gloria have great chemistry and lots and lots of sexual tension. The plot is unique and mysterious enough to keep the reader turning the pages and very hard to put down.
On Wings of Desire has a lot of emotions and a few surprises along the way and a very enjoyable read.

  1. I wanted to thank Ms. Keller for her wonderful review. I'm sure Salseph and Gloria would agree with me. Bianca
