About the book:
Even the good turn bad sometimes…
A life of servitude to God has left Ariel Raine feeling worn out. Being an Angel isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Day in and day out of the same routine tends to get tedious. Wanting some spice in her life, she sets her mind on discovering the allure of a sexual encounter. With the help of Madam Eve and her 1 Night Stand dating services, Ariel is about to have her world rocked.
Only problem is…her match is a demon.
Edison Grey has relied on dating services to claim minions for not only him, but for his master Satan as well. 1 Night Stand just happens to be this week’s preference. No use wasting a good service, Edison decides to have a little fun while he’s at it.
Stripping an angel of her purity is an added bonus…
What happens between Ariel and Edison is a surprise to both. Even with the threat of punishment looming over top of them.
What VampBard’s talking about:
I adore the 1Night Stand shorts! The Naughty Angel, by Sheila Stewart, definitely delivers an action-packed (read: HAWT!) short story.
Innocent Ariel, an angel, wants to partake of Earthly pleasures. She’s voyeuristically watched couples ‘get it on’ while performing her duties as a guardian of children. Once deciding to break her vow to remain chaste, Ariel contacts Madam Eve and submits her information to 1Night Stand dating service. Excited to have a match, she prints off the picture of her match, Edison, and looks for approval from her confidante, Seraphina. After receiving approval, she schedules her date at The Castle. Ariel is very innocent, believing that sex = making love. She’s shocked at pornography, as well as vulgar language.
Edison, Ariel’s ‘date’, turns out to be a demon. His original intent was to ‘turn’ his date after a night of hot sex. After taunting Ariel for a bit, he decides to romance her. He does the rose petals on the bed, and soft music. He makes the experience all about her.
Ultimately, the couple ends up agreeing to remain together, renouncing their duties to God and Satan. And they lived Happily Ever After. **eyeroll** The story was a bit trite, but it was a great read, around 40 pages according to the digital PDF, and kept me occupied and NOT annoyed while waiting to pick up a child from something-or-another. Great addition to the 1Night Stand titles!
Enjoyed – strongly recommend (A-)
