The Demon's Desire (Hearts of the Fallen, #2) Review

4 out 5 stars

The Demon's Desire is the second book in the Hearts of Fallen series. If you haven't read the first book The Demon's Song I highly recommend you pick it up. While you don't need to have read it before this one you will be more familiar with the characters and the world.
It begins in Terra Noctem a hidden world of vampires, angels, demons and fallen angels. The world building and characters are intriguing and draw you not the story. 
The hero Meresin is the Fallen Angel of Storms, he is a weapon in himself and it comes with a price. He is damaged, flawed and pushes everyone away. In order to save himself he has to return to Purgatory. He has always been a loner but to survive he knows he needs Dru's help. The one woman he cares for but refuses to admit to.
Dru is vampire royalty and ever since she kissed Meresin she has wanted him. She is the only person that brings some peace to him. Her strength of character, caring and determination to help the man she loves really has you rooting for her and you can't help but to be drawn to her.
Dru follows Meresin to Purgatory, a mission that is sure to kill him. Slowly throughout their journey Dru wears him down and once she does WOW does it get hot. The romance while slow to begin is well worth the wait.
This is story of betrayal, redemption and second chances. I loved that it featured a heroine who is the one pursuing her man. She is determined to save him and have him and never gives up.
My only complaint is that he ending was a little abrupt and felt rushed but overall another great story from a fantastic author.
