Not all angels are angelic…
Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know existed. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?
Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake. He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.

Thea knows she can manipulate people’s emotions, it’s saved her on more than one occasion, but that doesn’t mean she understands how she’s able to do it. When Cam confronts her and tells her what she is she’s extremely hostile with him. She’s a survivor; always doing whatever it takes. Cam wants her to be a warrior; something she’s not entirely sure she’s capable of, at least not by herself.
Cam is a demon killing angel. He’s a warrior. And when he gets his new assignment, training, he isn’t too thrilled at the prospect. After meeting Thea he’ll discover she’ll drive him insane, push his boundaries, make him want to renig on a vow, and ultimately make him do anything to have her beside him.
Their connection is destined. Their bond tight. Now if only those pesky human emotions didn’t hinder everything.
Claimed by Power has a few passionate moments, some semi-intense battle moments, and a whole lot of girlie attitude. It did seem to kind of fall flat for me in spots, but I have hope that Empire of Angels #2 will dig a little deeper into the characters and develop into something even better.
