Product Description

From the Back Cover

Embrace Your Destiny

Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. She'd been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. And all the while there's Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of the Duke of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: Is loving someone worth risking your life?

Sweet Peril picks up in the months after Sweet Evil and we witness a totally new side to Anna. Forced to work, in order to keep up appearances, she has become quite the party girl, the lifeblood of her school social scene.

Anna still pines for Kaidan Rowe though he won't have anything to do with her. It's heart-breaking, even though you know he is only staying away because he thinks it's the right thing to do. He crops up in a few minor scenes in the first half of the book but I missed him terribly, and I was so happy when I kicked into the second half of the story and he was a regular feature.

The first part of the book is largely taken up with Kope and Anna jet-setting around the world to gather more allies. The prophecy has been revealed and the Neph finally have a chance at reclaiming their lives and ridding the world of all demons. It's not without danger and they need to stay one step ahead of the Dukes at all times.

We learn more about the other Nephs in this book and I particularly warmed to Blake (he's a riot) and Marna (she's a sweetheart). The family connection is still strong, which I love, although I was shocked at her dad's actions. Surely a man who has spent years pining for his true love wouldn't do that to his own daughter?!

When Kaidan and Anna finally open their hearts to one another I felt like getting up and dancing a jig! Yay! Sorry, but I didn't feel any compassion for Kope, nice guy, but he was never going to get the girl.

All in all another fantastic read from Wendy Higgins - accomplished writing, brilliant execution.

The only issue I have now is that Kaidan Rowe is pushing for a No. 1 spot on my book boyfriend list. It's starting to get real competitive at the top and I don't know how I'm going to choose. (It's not like I can bump Edward, Aiden St. Delphi or Roth off the podium.)Nice dilemma! He! he!

I've come to the conclusion that Kaidan Rowe is a lot of the reason that I love this series. As he's trying to stay away from Anna to keep her safe from the Dukes, he's missing for most of the first half of this sequel and it did impact my enjoyment of it. Anna is travelling with Kope to visit some of the Nephilim who they think will be on their side when the time comes to fulfil a prophecy spoken by Sister Ruth, the nun who was present at Anna's birth. Anna thinks Kaidan is no longer interested in her, and I was really hoping she wasn't going to turn to Kope for comfort.

At long last, Anna's dad gives her permission to travel to LA to speak with Kaidan and Blake. From this point on, my interest was peaked one hundred fold. I just couldn't put it down from here on out.

Anna and Kaidan are brilliant together. Whether they're arguing or making out, it's really enjoyable being with them. And things do get quite steamy.

I really like Anna. She's tough, but also really sweet, caring and extremely loving, and now that she's been trained to fight, she's kick ass too. And she can cook, a fact which manages to turn Kaidan on.

I enjoy the English slang in this series. It's something that's completely familiar to me in everyday life, but in the books that I usually read, it's quite unusual so I thought it was a nice change.

This series has some great secondary characters too. The twins Marna and Ginger, Blake, Patti and Anna's best friend Jay. For some reason, I never took to Kope, though it could have been that I always feared there was a chance that he'd get with Anna, even in the first book, Sweet Evil, they seemed to get a little cosy.

The Dukes are completely depraved and unremorseful.

I loved the first book and although I have given it a 4 star I just found that during the middle it went a little bit boring for me. Anna has to travel to different parts of the world to get allies so she can use the sward of righteousness but I found the traveling a bit boring. She goes with Kope and we meet up with some of our favourite characters.
The reason I gave this a 4 star because for me this book seemed to drag on a bit. There were times when Anna was at home and she was winning about not being with Kaidan because she thought he wasn't interested in her. But Kaidan was trying to protect her.
When Anna's dad gave her permission to go to L.A. to see Kaidan and Blake the story picked up.
From then on till the end the book was gripping and I found ever page was a turn over.
This book doesn't end on a clifhanger like the first book, but I was a little disappointed with the way it ended.
I can't wait to start reading the last book.

I was not disappointed with the second book in this Trilogy. As the story unfolded and more characters were involved in the plot, the story became more and more interesting as well as being addictive.

Besides Anna and Kaidan, Kopano was another one of my favourites. I found this book to be another page turner and to me one of the best YA novel.

I give Sweet Peril a 5 stars rate more easily than I gave Sweet Evil. It was an amazing and seductive journey filled with a lot more action than the first book. And according to what I've read about Sweet Reckoning it is more sensual and fast paced than the first two installments, so I really can't wait to read it.

Also, I'd like to thank Wendy Higgings for creating this beautiful character that is Kaidan Rowe and for writing chapters 16 to 18. Thank you. I have never read a scene so HOTT . Yes, Kai is extra T worthy ;)
