About the Book

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.

My Thoughts:
Overall, I liked The Angel Wore Fangs. Cnut is adorable. At the beginning we see how he became a vangel. Now when we first meet him some might find him a bit grotesque, and they wouldn't be wrong, after all his sin is gluttony. Jump ahead to the present day, Cnut is no longer the morbid obese viking he use to be, but he still feels that way. Anyway, he finds himself attracted to Andrea who smells like coconut. However, when he was his old self he wouldn't have been attracted to her. Anyway, Andrea needs Cnut's help to track her sister who is in a serious pickle. Everything is going find up until they land themselves in Cnut's old home, and they aren't sure if they will ever get back to the present. 

Okay, I liked this part of story a couple reasons: 1) Cnut realizes he was a crappy leader when he was alive. 2) He has a chance to atone for his mistakes. It was an eye opener for him, and he felt remorse for what he had done. As I said I did like this part of the story, but at the same time it seemed a little drawn out, and at times I did find myself putting the story down. 

Yes, I liked majority of The Angel Wore Fangs. I adore Cnut and Andrea, because they banter as an old married couple. Especially at the beginning of getting stuck in 10th Century. I mean I would be calling the guy an idiot if somehow manage to throw us back in time. Andrea took being toss in the past in strive, I mean she could have complain the whole time, but instead she pitched in. Don't get me wrong there were times were a little hard, but she manage. She even helped Cnut with the crisis he left behind. I did really liked how Cnut tried to right the wrong. 

Now you would think this would be the last book since, we have been through the seven sins or should have (I have some catching up), but there is one last demon that needs help. In November we get Zebulon the Hebrew. Now his story should be interesting. I just hope everything works out for him in long run, but it doesn't seem that way. 

Anyway, adored Cnut, because he has come a long way from his former self. Even though he still struggles, he's such a good guy. Plus, Andrea and him make an awesome team. I think those who have enjoyed the previous books will enjoy Cnut's story.

“The third book in Sandra Hill’s Deadly Angels series, Kiss of Temptation, comes out Tuesday.

Aren’t we all, when it comes to Sandra Hill’s books?” — USA Today on Kiss of Temptation
