She's pure innocenceMy Thoughts: *blinks* This book wasn't quite what I was expecting. In a good way. It... was more. MOAR! And I liked it. A LOT. I thought I was just going to get a "demon lays his considerable charms on an innocent" type of story and instead I got an HOLY FREAKING GLOB! WHAT? OKAY! MOAR! type of story. I'm not saying that Dev didn't use his considerable charms on Teresa. Indeed, he did. I'm just saying that this story was also touching and sweet and sexy and I really, really liked it.
Due to her tragic past, Teresa has always wanted to become a nun; she longs for a life of quiet contemplation. Sins of the flesh terrify her and from what she's seen, passion only leads down into darkness. Every pleasure has its price.
He's the essence of sin
A divinely diabolical wager sends the golden, handsome Dev to a remote monastery with one task--Teresa's complete seduction. If he fails, he spends the rest of his immortal life in hell. If he succeeds, it costs her soul.
Seven days of temptation. One innocent maiden. One devilish incubus. Will she choose her immortal soul or the love of a lifetime?
Without giving too much away, I loved that Teresa *saw* Dev. She found happiness in his happiness. She understood what the cost would be for him if he failed in his seduction. She was just as lost as he was, for all she had such a clear-cut path in front of her. It worked for me. All of the give and take of their time together worked.
This was a fun story. I really enjoyed it and I thought the end was perfect. *thumbs up*
