Title: Awakened by a Demoness
Awakened by a Demoness (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 10)
Asteria of the Second Legion of demons has messed up. Royally. With a capital everything. Certain that her dark lord is about to end her in the most painful way imaginable, she’s stunned when the fallen angel offers her an uncharacteristic shot at redemption—and determined not to fail him again. With her life on the line, she sets out on a mission that sounds easy but proves to be far from it when a hot slice of angelic eye candy comes storming into her life, stirring dangerous desires and tempting her more than any male before him.
Fifth Commander of the Echelon, the highest order of angels in Heaven and those responsible for hunting demons, he will allow nothing to stand in the way of fulfilling the mission he began close to a century ago so he can finally return to his home. On the verge of securing the half-breed he has been hunting, he can almost taste victory—until a sassy demoness struts into his life, awakening wicked needs and forbidden hungers that will test him to his limit.
When their mission brings them on a collision course, can they fight the fierce heat of the passion that blazes between them to claim a victory for their side or will it burn their resistance to ashes and set their hearts on fire with a love both forbidden and eternal?

A demoness and an angel? Get ready for a forbidden romance with Awakened by a Demoness. Asteria (demoness) has royally screwed up. She thinks she’s about to be punished (permanently) by the devil himself, but instead he gives her one more chance to redeem herself. She is tasked with finding an angel/demon half breed and bring her back to Hell. Little does she know one very sexy angel is tasked with the very same duty.
Being that this is the 10th book in the series, you’re probably searching your memory for Asteria and the angel we’ll call ‘Rey’. In all honesty, I know I did and I really think they are new players to the series. Which, can be a good thing. Asteria I found to be a humorous character. Evil can be so wicked! Comparing her to Rey (angels can be so stuffy), at first was light night and day. But, as you got to know them, you could see she wasn’t all bad and he wasn’t all good. As the story progressed, the clashing, snappy retorts all led to steamy moments and revelations. And then the biggest shocker is handed out by none other than the half-breed herself. Julianna drops quite the bomb on are two star-crossed lovers leaving them on a ‘what to do now’ decision. While it wasn’t too surprising that they got a HEA, it’s that finally decision that was a bit shocking. And that HEA, it may or may not suggest a future visit with these two. I can see it going either way, so not quite a cliffy, but a opening is still there.
I have mixed feeling about this book. On one hand, it was really good. I liked the dynamics between Asteria and Rey. There’s quite of bit of tension and flirting as they work things out. The unexpected twist caught me completely off guard. Never saw THAT coming and I never would have guessed it in a million years. So all that is well and good. Now what has me on the fence is trying to figure out how it all ties in together with the other storylines or characters in the Eternal Mates series. I mean I get it, he’s an angel, she’s a demoness, both are immortals so yes they will be mates eternally. But how it all fits in with the elf kingdom, dragons, shifters from the previous books has me scratching my head. In all honesty, Awakened by a Dragon can be read as a stand-alone calling it a day and putting these characters out of my mind. Sorry folks but if a book is part of a series I like to know how it all ties in together. I’m just not seeing it.
I’ve been reading Ms. Heaton’s work for several years now and I got to say she really is worth the read. Her great plots, interesting characters and hot sex never disappoint. Fans of her work are going to enjoy Awakened by a Demoness.
