New York Times bestselling author Sandra Hill continues her sexy Deadly Angels series, as a Viking vangel’s otherworldly mission pairs him with a beautiful chef who whets his thousand-year-old appetite . . .
Once guilty of the deadly sin of gluttony, thousand-year-old Viking vampire angel Cnut Sigurdsson is now a lean, mean, vampire-devil fighting machine. His new side-job? No biggie: just ridding the world of a threat called ISIS while keeping the evil Lucipires (demon vampires) at bay. So when chef Andrea Stewart hires him to rescue her sister from a cult recruiting terrorists at a Montana dude ranch, vangel turns cowboy. Yeehaw!
The too-tempting mortal insists on accompanying him, surprising Cnut with her bravery at every turn. But with terrorists stalking the ranch in demonoid form, Cnut tele-transports Andrea and himself out of danger-accidentally into the 10th Century Norselands. Suddenly, they have to find their way back to the future to save her family and the world . . . and to satisfy their insatiable attraction.

4 Coconut and Peppermint Hearts!
The room smelled of sweet coconut.And he was hit with yet another temptation, more powerful than that of food or drink. Blood drained from his head and heat sizzled across his skin from his scalp to the tips of his fingers and the ends of his curled toes. Between his legs, his balls shifted and his staff seemed to yawn and stretch and come to life. If cocks could smile, his was doing a happy dance of anticipation.
This was possibly one of the funniest books I've read this year. A book about a Viking guilty of glutton, turned Angelic vampire sent on a quest to defeat Isis. This was bound to either have me scratching my head in confusion or like my actual reaction, have me in fits of laughter. This book was surprisingly light and fluffy in a good way and while I thought the whole Isis thing didn't really fit in, I did really enjoy it.
Cnut, whose name had me constantly calling him a really bad word, is one of seven brothers who are also angelic vampires created to fight evil and they're lead by Michael the Arch angel. Each brother is guilty of the one the seven sins, Cnuts being glutton, their penance is a 700 year stint in God's army.
When Andrea's (the romantic interest or lifemate) sister goes missing and the private investigator her parents (who promptly go on a boat cruise) hired informs them that her sister Celie, has joined Isis. Andrea seeks out Cnut help to find her sister. Now again I really kinda felt like the Isis thing put a real damper on the story which is why I wasn't so sure if I was going to enjoy it in the beginning. But luckily that all changed.
I haven't read the previous books in this series but trust me I totally kept up with everything and didn't feel like I was losing out, but I will definitely be reading the other books in the series. While searching for Andrea's sister, they find themselves back in Cnuts old home. Time travel anyone? I really enjoyed this part of the story. I loved how Cnut would call Andrea sweetling, heartling or dearling. It was so darn cute!
I wasn't even sure I would like Cnut in the beginning since he weighed in at a hefty 400 pounds and let his people starve while he glutted lol. And after he'd lost all the weight only to end up falling in love with a pastry chef! Worst combination ever. But I loved Andrea and Cnut together. Andrea was a tough cookie to crack she had some hang ups about herself and I did get annoyed at her constantly comparing herself to everyone else. And what was with her constantly swatting Cnut. My goodness lol!
He grinned at her, not taking her seriously at all. Or so she thought. Until he extended his own forearm to show her the dark blond hairs raised like a field of erotic antennae.
"Coconut tingles," he explained.
Since I'm a newbie to this series I was kinda thrown by how the author made these Angelica vampires devout Christians. I just wasn't expecting it, but it gelled so well with the storyline that I forgot about how highly irregular everything in this story is. I'll definitely be reading more of Hill's work especially Zeb the Hebrew's story!

“The third book in Sandra Hill’s Deadly Angels series, Kiss of Temptation, comes out Tuesday. Along with it comes the temptation to play hooky that day so I can hang out with Ivak, who’s guilty of the sin of lust. Aren’t we all, when it comes to Sandra Hill’s books?”
