Spotlight & Review: Divine Passion by Valerie Twombly

Divine Passion
by Valerie Twombly
Genre: Paranormal Romance 

Baal is a demon that likes to make his own rules and the thought of being tied down to only one woman makes his skin itch. When he rescues the human Ranata from becoming a sacrificial lamb, he gets more than he bargained for. With Hades insisting his fate is to bond with the beautiful female, he can either resist or risk losing his heart. 

One minute Ranata is tending bar in a small hole in the wall, and the next she fears for her life. When a sexy demon comes along and saves the day, his golden eyes and hard body make him difficult to resist. With her sister in the clutches of the enemy, she must plan a daring rescue. Fate however, has other plans. Will she choose the path destiny has laid out for her?

My Review:
Fast paced and full of action. This was one sexy and fun read! Full of all kinds of paranormal creatures it made for an interesting world.
This is the first in the series that I've read and it stood alone pretty well. Parts of it were a bit confusing but I followed along for the most part.
I love Baal. He's snarky and so full of himself but you cant help but love him and want to break through his layers. He lost someone he loved in the past and wont give up his heart again. Ranata was fearless. For being thrust into this world and finding out about her true self, she held it together really well. I loved how she was willing to fight and help these people that she didn't know. They made for a great team and explosive couple.
I definitely plan on going back and reading the rest of the series. It is a very intriguing world that the author made and I look forward to finding out more.

  1. oh this one sound really good you made me curious of Baal

    1. He was a lot of fun. I would say though that this series should be read in order. I followed it well enough but I would have enjoyed it more if I read it from the beginning.
