It was just a fling. Lilith Templeton had no clue he was a human agent working for the angels. No big deal, but she got caught and Mother Superior, Portland's most powerful angel, wants penance. Or death, Lilith's choice. Being a lowly half-demon and therefore not a participant in the never-ending war for souls, she knows it's insane to cross the full-blood demons like Mother Superior wants. But opting out isn't an option: do or die. For additional penance, she's paired with an angel who not only ignites her lust but something more. Lilith wants to fall in love, to know what it was like to share herself with just one man. Yet since succubi needed to stay sexually satisfied, falling in love with the angel of chastity is a mistake she can't afford. Gabriel would have never second-guessed his choice to ascend through the virtue of chastity. Until he meets Lilith. Now, his ascension would be forfeit if he cannot vanquish his need for her. Having no choice but to ignore the fire burning inside them, they work towards tempting the demon cult's human leader into revealing the hideout. Lilith, sexually irresistible half-succubus, is the perfect bait. Get in, send the signal and wait for the angel to rescue her. Oh and not get killed, or tempt the angel. Simple, right?

Gothic City Lights by Brindle Chase
When I first started reading this I did get a sense of "here we go again" with its touch of predictability as to whether Lilith would give in her to overcoming feelings. But it was so much, much more than that. The writing and suspense was a real page turner and I ultimately had warmed to Lilith for her over confident character, although this is mainly because she is a succubi. Through the book you started to see how she was tormenting herself and yes even she started to show signs of not feeling confident in herself. I did fall in love with Gabriel too and the way he seemed to be struggling in the same way with his feelings and how he would do anything to protect Lilith. This soon became more than just being a guardian angel, who doesn't want someone to protect them?
When I was reading this recently everyone has been going on about the sex scenes in the 50 shades of... series of books and let me tell you Mr Chase can write a sex scene. Oh yes he can. He can create anticipation to the point where you're reading the book and never putting it down as you need to know if they will actually fulfil both their desires. Believe me, it's good.
This is the first book of this series with the next one about Helena going on my 'must read' list now. But back to this book, this is a great romance story with enough back story and intense sexual writing to keep you hooked. Thoroughly recommended and would be the perfect book to have a sexy fling with on your Summer holiday!
