Love is the most dangerous territory of all . . . Every day, bodyguard Owen Jackson puts his life on the line — and keeps his feelings for Penny Sandoval locked away.

A Nix Review – Reaver by Larissa Ione (5 Stars)

WARRIOR OF HEAVEN Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he’s agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before…to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself. ANGEL OF HELL Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she’s been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan’s lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld’s darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel’s blood… FTC: I requested this book after a publisher invitation to do so. I was not paid for this review. All fan-girling squee’s are due to my own over-excitement, nothing more sinister…. So, a word of… Keep Reading »
