Mael Black is the prince of London's vampire. He is dark and dangerous, but he is like a pater familiae for his vampires: he takes care of them and like an old warlord he holds court to listen to their problem. He is not a lonely warrior.

Cian Carmichael instead is a lonely warrior, an angel who has lived too many years among the madness of the human world and now his behaviour is more similar to human people than angels. He is a hunter of rogue vampires but he fights alone, in the shadows of the city.

Cian is irremediably drawn to Maen, but a vampire and an angel is an impossible couple. But love maybe can create a place among two different existence to allow to two lover to share their bodies and at the end also their hearts.

The very originality of this novel is that the darker character is Cian, the angel, he walks alone in the shadows, instead Mael, the vampire, has duties that oblige him to deal with an entire court of people.

A very romantic gothic novel setting in a modern London but with the atmosphere of endless time. This is not the tale of a fallen angel, but his quest for the true love.

Great that this wonderful book is finally avilable in print!

Hmmm....wow. I think in this instance I would like to give more than five stars. "The Prince's Angel" is a finely crafted urban fantasy with a beautiful gay romance at the heart. And with it, they take slow built passion to a new level. The two protagonists dance around each other, and their own feelings, suffering a lot of angst in the process. Quite delicious, really, as is the sex when they finally give in to one another. This is not to say there is a lack of horizontal action in the book; it just enhances the story rather than being the story. Oh, and the authors took the trouble to build a plot with mystery and action too. Naughty authors.

In the 1970's, vampires' existence was revealed to the world. In the present, they have rights, but also a ruling body with laws to govern them. Any vampire who acts outside these laws is rogue. Mael Black is the vampire Prince of London. And he has a steadily growing rogue problem. Now, many authors have inserted vampires into "regular" society as a story vehicle. Similarities to to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake universe (with Princes of a City rather than Master of a City) can be seen, but there is a new twist. Heaven isn't just some vague notion - and angels are real. Enter Cian Carmichael. He is one of many angels sent by God to protect humanity and hunt rogues. Yup, he has wings! As the problem in London reaches dangerous levels, Cian will have to join forces with Mael to determine the cause. Complications arise when Cian realizes he's falling in love with Mael - a union between a vampire and an angel should never be. Should it? And what lengths will Cian go to protect Mael when a plot to assassinate them both disrupts their investigation and they learn the rogues lead back to the highest levels of power?

This novel is well-written and fast paced, with excellent dialog and a rich plot. Cian and Mael are completely three-dimensional with flaws, virtues, and all the range of emotions of real people. Readers will fall for them even more quickly than they fall for each other. The supporting characters are also well done and given enough backstory to make their parts come alive. Though the ending has closure, there are questions left unanswered, and unrequited love that needs requiting, that beg for a sequel - which a little bird told me will happen. Buy it now. Buy a copy for a friend. ( )

Though the ending has closure, there are questions left unanswered, and unrequited love that needs requiting, that beg for a sequel - which had better be forthcoming, or I will be forced to sick an angel on these two merciless writers who lured me into their world. Highly recommended. Buy it now. Buy a copy for a friend. ( )
