Synopsis (Goodreads):
The King of Demons and the Devil’s right hand man, Asmodeus is a dark angel born of evil and created for destruction. When his master orders him to venture into the mortal world and retrieve a female for him, he seizes the chance to leave Hell for the first time, uncaring of what the Devil has planned for her… until he sets eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen—a female who awakens new feelings within his black heart, unleashing passion so intense that it controls him and desire he cannot resist.

He will not let his wretched master have her. She will belong to him.

Liora is a witch with a bad reputation and an obsession with fighting demons. A mission gone wrong sees her sent to Paris to cool off, but when a dark and deadly warrior with a gaze of golden fire lands in her life, she ends up burning hotter than Hell for the wicked angel. Nothing will stand between her and the immense, forbidding male. Not her cousin. Not Asmodeus’s sworn enemy and twin, Apollyon. And certainly not the Devil.

Caught up in a tempest of danger and soul-searing passion, can they survive against the odds and seize their forever after?
Thoughts on Her Wicked Angel: Man, I felt for Asmodeus. Having to live your life in the shadow of Apollyon and always feeling like you come up short? Sucks. Top that with having everybody hate you simply because you're concentrated evil? Double suck.

The thing is, he's not concentrated evil. He has his moments, sure, but he also has this little nugget of goodness inside him that Liora keeps poking at. Let's face it, never being allowed to leave Hell and having to give the finger to the Devil every so often is going to make you grow a darn hard shell. All the good in him got pushed down and down and down until it's barely noticeable. Liora triggers his protective side. And his lusty side.

Which is awesome because pent-up dark angels need love, too.

I thoroughly enjoyed the set-up for events down the road and it was fun seeing familiar faces pop up. Asmodeus and Liora's relationship is just the tip of the iceberg here. They have THINGS they have to accomplish and people to watch over.

Also, maybe the Devil's only half as bad as we've been led to believe. Or maybe he's even worse. I'm still up in the air about that.
