Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark #1) by Gena Showalter

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless -- and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation -- or her ultimate damnation?

Entertaining but predecible.
Not a must read but a good choice if you have nothing better to read.

It's hard to say so, because I love this author, but this book has been disappointing to me.
Wicked Nights has a trite plot. Nothing new or deep here.

The main characters were a cliche as well as the overall plot and that even though I get hooked after the first 4 pages! 
Unfortunately and despite the early chapters promised that the book would be fantastic, it quickly faded to fall into the same old clichés.
The most positive aspect of the book is that it makes you want to know more about the secondary characters. Well played by Showalter, it ensures that we continue reading the series.
But even if it’s not the book of the year you will be entertained by it.
