Summary: (from goodreads) Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible. 

Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break

Raphael the archangel of New York, was in need of some help locating one of their own, that had gone terribly wrong. They needed someone with a special ability to scent vampires, and Elena was the only and best hunter from the Guild that possessed the gift. Unable to decline the suicidal mission that would probably get her killed and even if she survived surely her attitude and refusal to bow down to anyone would bring her demised presented her as a danger to the people surrounding Raphael. Since the team thought of her as dangerous to the Archangel, the unavoidable attraction between them was not received with open arms, creating a constant power struggle and fight for control. The little changes in him became apparent and their efforts to make the prohibited relationship to work, only made the rest of his special force to worry that he was becoming a little human and she was the catalyst.

Love this fantasy world and plot that Nalini's imagination has created with a cast of characters so interesting in themselves as to make you wish to read more about them all. The story is not for the weak of stomach, a lot of details is given on the violent acts, not as page fillers but to help understand the mind of those committing the acts also know that there are very sensual and sexy descriptive scenes, so be prepared to experience them.

The possibility is opened in this book for the next chapter as well as the introduction to some of the characters that will definitely have a punch on the following books.
