Book Review: Demon's Fall

She was an angel at the gates of Hell.
 
When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.
 
Knowing he must gain Jahel's trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place-retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding-he even offers to help her complete her mission.
 
Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse...

This book ended being a total surprise to me.  I mean when you are talking about an incubus the last thing that one expects is a sweet love story.  Don't get me wrong, there is a sex scene in the book but no where as graphic as one might expect. 

I enjoyed this novella and plan on keeping my eye out for future releases by Ms. Lee.  I just love it when an author can surprise me.  Also she did a fantastic job with the characters of both Kenan and Jahel which can really be a challenge in a novella.  There were a couple editing errors however that pulled me out of the story such as entire paragraphs repeating themselves a few pages later.

I rate this book a 3 and probably would have gone as far as a 3.5 if it wasn't for those errors. 

I did receive this book from NetGallery in exchange for the review.  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.
