cover image

Random House, 2012. ISBN 9780857531643.
(Ages: 14+) This very short novel has 4 separate love stories featuring Miles, Shelby, Roland, Ariane, Daniel and Luce from the popular Fallen series, The stories are set around St Valentine's Day in medieval England, and are connected through the collective wish of four of the characters for Daniel and Luce to have a romantic night together.
Miles and Shelby act on their long time attraction in their story, while Roland secretly visits the mortal woman that he abandoned years before in his tale. Ariane's love affair with Tess ends badly when she is forced by Tess to choose between following Lucifer or the Fallen Angels. The last story is that of Daniel and Luce and how they are brought together by their friends on Valentine's Day.
Readers who have not read other books in the series will find much of the book confusing, as there are limited explanations about why characters are in their particular situations. This book fits between the fourth and fifth book in the Fallen series and would be enjoyed by fans of the other books.
