Why would the King of Incubi send one of his spies out on Christmas Eve? Unless it is to break her heart…

As a succubus, preying on humans is Raschael’s business, and mortal holidays are a frivolous waste of time. So maybe her king meant to punish her when he sent her out to hunt on Christmas Eve. Or maybe he just wanted her far, far away, so he could banish Raschael’s one trusted friend.

Your little pet has run off.

Now Raschael must track down a missing fallen angel, and she doesn’t have a clue where to start. Bigger predators are closing in, and Rasche’s only lead is a Christmas stripper named Noelle.

Sometimes the rules need to be bent a little.

What surprised me the most about the sex scenes was how effortlessly the author used some of them to move the plot forward. They were hot and informative! That isn’t something I generally see in these types of stories, so it was a lot of fun to see how this technique can work.

Raschael lives in an incredibly complex society whose rules often have little to nothing in common with how humans live. While the world-building in this tale was strong, there were several times when I felt confused about what was going on. Certain terms were used for a long time before they were defined, yet knowing what they meant was important to understanding why certain characters reacted to them the way they did. I would have really liked to have either learned their definitions right away or to have access to a short glossary at the end of this e-book that explained what these words meant.

With that being said, Ms. Serrah has a smooth writing style that made it hard for me to tear my eyes away from the page. The world she created was fascinating. I read this whole book in one sitting because I was so curious to see how it would end. Based on how much I enjoyed it, I will be on the lookout for what she comes up with next.

Angel’s Keeping is a good choice for anyone in the mood for something steamy.
