Summary: Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Why the WOW: April 2013 has some great new releases; Dark Triumph, Taken, The Elite, Natural Born Angel! But save one of the best for the last of the month; Sweet Peril.

When I finished Sweet Evil last June, I immediately pulled up goodreads to check for a sequel. My heart might have stopped when I saw that the sequel's status was up in the air. But after the fans united, we were rewarded with the awesome news of a sequel being picked up for publication. And there were shouts of joy!

None the less, its been a long wait since that news. Can't wait to see Ann and company in action again. And what's this of a globe-trotting journey with Kopano; I sense Anna's heart might be pulled away from Kaidan, but just slightly. Makes for some good reading!

Lately, I've been listening to Florence + the Machine, everytime I hear the song Seven Devils I think of this series.
