First Lines:  The images in the bright pool flickered past Appollyon's eyes at lightning speed but he could see them all, could bring each into focuse and pause there a moment to understand what was happening in the scene. 
*NOTE* Definitely an Adult book. Be wary of My Thoughts  :)

An angel without a mission, Apollyon lives trapped in Hell guarding the bottomless pit. Surrounded by endless darkness, he longs to fly free on Earth once more but his master hasn’t called him in centuries. When the call finally comes, it’s to serve a new master, a beautiful woman he has often watched over, a woman who has always captivated him.
Serenity is shocked when a gorgeous black-winged angel shows up in her city of Paris claiming that she called him when she was only casting a simple vengeance spell. He’s no other than the angel of death! When Apollyon offers to obey her and help her have revenge on her cheating ex-boyfriend, she can’t resist the temptation, but can she resist him? Can an angel as dark as Apollyon ever fall for a mortal woman like her?
Their charade as lovers quickly becomes reality when one dance leads to another and Apollyon proves that he’s as sinful as he looks. His sensual and hungry touch brings Serenity back to life, freeing her from the hurt of being betrayed and reigniting her passion, but she can’t ignore her growing fear. Lost in their moment together, Apollyon realises that there is a reason he heard her call—he’s in love with her.
But will Serenity see past the wings and believe that Apollyon returns her feelings and won’t hurt her? When her ex-boyfriend asks her to forgive him and be with him again, will she take the easy route or will she find the courage to fly away with her dark angel?
Dark, passionate and erotic, Her Dark Angel is a tale of intense desire and deepest forbidden love guaranteed to get your heart racing.

My Thoughts
What can I say?  That cover is Hot! I've read one other book from Felicity so far and I really enjoyed it so I was really looking forward to getting a hold of this.

Her Dark Angel had me captivated from the very beginning.  It starts off in Apollyon's POV and from there I'm sucked into the story.  Serenity is my definite favourite.  She has her little quirks and I love what she can do.  It really puts an interesting spin on the things.

I can't pinpoint what it is about Serenity, but I could definitely relate to her on some level.  She's been burned and bent on revenge but she is not sure that what Apollyon has in mind is the right type of 'revenge' for her.

This one is a great hot and steamy read.  The first part of the book had me going WOW even before there was any action.  The story was well written and had my attention the whole way through.   

I recommend this to those who are looking for a quick hot paranormal read.  It's a good balance without the er.. hotness overiding the main story line which I've found that some paranormals tend to do :)  I definitely enjoyed it.
