Two years after seeing Anjali again, Will Vassago can’t stop thinking about her, who saw and touched him, the fallen angel. His desire for her hasn’t lessened, and now he needs her help to find a Skinwalker that escaped from Hell. Will is forced to be on the human plane by Heaven and he has the job of sending all demons back to Hell. The last thing he wants is for Anjali to find out what he truly is and that’s something he’s not proud of.

Anjali, an employee of the Kavanaugh Foundation and demon hunter in her own right, enjoys her job. She is shocked to find Will sitting on her sofa; making himself at home and she is fuming from the mess he’s made. After he explains why he’s there, she’s forced by her company to help him and she is trying to get the assignment over as quick as possible. That’s because she doesn’t want to lose control over her emotions or have her attraction to him become an issue.

Angelic Surrender jumped off at a quick pace and didn’t stop moving until the end, whew! There is a lot of plotting, action, murders and hot steamy sex going on throughout this story, with Will and Anjali at the center of everything. This is the second book in The Kavanaugh Foundation series and I thought that Ms. McHugh does a really great job of expressing her storytelling skill. The powerful villains, who added quite a twist to this book, were not who I expected and they didn’t disappoint with their scheming.

Will proved to be the more caring fallen angel, instead of the hardcore demon keeper he portrayed to others. His attempt to keep Anjali from getting under his skin proved how much he missed Heaven and God’s love. Anjali’s determination to always control her life, and relationships with others, was interesting. There is not a lot of history given as to why she’s like that, only her parents were killed when she was very young.

The characters in this story are new to me, but well able to handle the dangerous situations they came upon. Some of the secondary character were a plus, along with forcing Will to solve the problems, and to me, this is creating more books! These books, so far, don’t have to be read in order but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to read them.
