No slowing down on Saturday. Its day 6 of Fifty Shades of YA Boys today. Today would complete the 1st week of postings. So make sure to check both Dark Faerie Tales and Once Upon a Twilight daily until 7/31 and if you missed a post go back and catch up. Follow along on Twitter to with hashtag #FiftyShadesYABoys.
Today is a special day because we don't have just one hottie stopping by, no its two hotties. So you get double the fun of getting to know Luc and Gabriel from Lisa Desrochers's Personal Demons Trilogy. Personal Demons Trilogy consist of Personal Demons (#1), Original Sin (#2) and Last Rite (#3). This is a set of books that are must-haves on your shelf. Let's meet the ever so complicated but hot Lucifer "Luc" Cain and the dreamy celestial Angel Gabriel "Gabe".

All demons are created from sin, and the sin we’re borne of defines us. I’m a creature of lust.
This generally works to my advantage in my position in Acquisitions. Seduction is a powerful tool and I find teenage girls are all too willing. I get them going on the little ones—starter sins, if you will. Not enough to tag their souls for Hell, but enough to send them in our direction eventually. I don’t even need to use my power…not that I’d feel guilty if I did. Guilt isn’t in the demonic repertoire of emotions. It just feels more honest when they come to sin of their own volition. Again, not that I care about being honest. It’s just too easy the other way.
In truth, the rules are clear. Unless their souls are tagged, we can’t force mortals to do anything out of character or manipulate their actions in any way. For the most part, all I can do with my power is cloud their thoughts, blur the line between right and wrong just a little. And that’s all it usually takes.
Anyone who says the devil made them do it is feeding you a line.
Of course, the girls don’t know they’re giving me a roadmap. There’s no bigger turn on than the scents of raging teenage emotion: the tangy citrus of fear, the bitter garlic of hate, the anise of envy, and ginger—lust. That’s the one I look for—and almost always find.
I smell it all over Frannie.
With her, there’s more. Warm chocolate. I’m not sure what it means, but it feels significant. Whenever I sense it coming from her, my chest tightens around my brimstone heart. The feeling makes me want to protect her—from me.
But she’s my mark, and I’ve never missed. Frannie’s not going to be the first soul to slip through my net. She’s too important.
She wants me. All I have to do is take her.
But I have to get Gabriel out of the way first.
Frannie was a baby when we recognized her talent. She’s been my charge ever since. I threw a Shield over her and it hid her from Hell for seventeen years.
Until Brimstone-breath found her.
When I first met Luc in Pompeii, collecting souls after Vesuvius, I knew he was trouble. I sensed something different about him.
And now I’m sure.
He’s the only demon to ever be able to find Frannie through my Shield. There’s an almost tangible connection between the two of them that I can’t explain. But if I’m going to protect Frannie from Luc and his boss, I have to break it. I’ll do whatever it takes, even if it means crossing a line or two.
The truth is, I’ve caught myself wanting to cross those lines. There’s something about Frannie…maybe her inner strength, or her fierce loyalty, but she makes me feel things I didn’t know celestials could feel. I’ve always loved—it’s what angels do—but I’ve never loved. Or lusted.
I’m not of the Earth, so I can’t return to it if I fall. I know that if I give in to my Earthly desires, it means the Fires of Hell for me.
I’m still thinking about it.
But if I do that, I won’t be able to protect her, and if I can’t protect her, there will be Hell to pay for Heaven and Earth.
And I’m still thinking about it.
