Several graphic sex scenes, sensuality
Drusilla “Tally” Tallow does. Both fallen and otherwise because she’s got ten days of Heavenly and Infernal Parole after knocking Falcon Cherrywood from his broom. All she wanted was to settle down with a nice warlock, have babies, and grow old together. But she’s got a bad habit of falling for the wrong warlock. She blames Cupid. Too bad her Heavenly Parole Officer is none other than the heart bandit himself—the newly appointed Cupid and current fixture in all her fantasies, Falcon Cherrywood.
After smiting Cupid with a fireball, Falcon Cherrywood must now play the Diapered Archer. He can’t think of anything more humiliating than flying around in pink wings shooting arrows into hopeless fools. Archery was never his strong suit and Falcon doesn’t even believe in love. But more troubling are the feelings his sinfully irresistible parolee sets off in him—for only Tally has the power to make him believe in things better left to fairy tales, like Happily Ever After.
HOW TO SEDUCE AN ANGEL IN 10 DAYS was a light, goofy paranormal romance that I had a good time reading. My only issue was that since it was third in the 10 Days series, I was missing out on a lot of plot that happened in the two previous books, which made the story a little hard to get into. Luckily, there was a cute main couple, great supporting characters and lots of laughs to keep me interested.
Tally and Falcon are an adorable couple. Though my major complaint is about all the detail that happened before this book, it also is a good thing, because you’re made aware that Tally and Falcon have a history together and this is not an "instalove" couple. And though it is obvious that in the end Falcon will be the guy for Tally, it is fun to watch all the other guys she interacts with along the way. Ethelred (the opposite of Falcon- Tally’s demonic parole officer) and Tristan (her ex-boyfriend who happens to be the Angel of Death) are both really good at pushing Falcon’s buttons, with hilarious results.
The entire setup is based on an event that I'm guessing happened in the second book, and that is where the confusion comes in. While there is information given about what happened, why, and what the results were, it was still not all very clear and I found myself making a lot of conjectures. And I would like to take a moment and say, really- Falcon? Midnight? The names!
I enjoyed HOW TO SEDUCE AN ANGEL IN 10 DAYS quite a bit, despite being a little lost. If you’re going to pick it up, I would suggest maybe going back and reading the first two in the series before you do. I've already gone ahead and bought the first book, HOW TO LOSE A DEMON IN 10 DAYS. I’m hoping that book four will cover Tristan’s romance, and I want to make sure I’m all caught up!
