What Kind of Hero Do You Prefer – Angel or Demon?

Lately, readers have a wide array of choices when it comes to romance and erotica sub-genres. Every flavor of paranormal romance from werewolves to vampires and angels to demons is available. In fact, there are so many entertaining and well-written stories, it’s hard to choose.

Since our blog hop addresses angels and demons, let’s narrow our focus to those archetypes. A demon would seem to be the classic bad boy alpha male. Bad boys can be very enticing, as they tend to have strong personalities and a lot of attitude.

On the flipside is our angel. Like any other hero, he has inner strength. He is characterized by his code of honor and his actions.

These are just two possible interpretations. What would you choose – angel or demon? What would be his defining characteristic?

Excerpt from WIP – Clockwork Caning (unedited)

Nigel’s fingers moved to her coiffure and he began to remove her hairpins one by one, dropping them on the cushion. Soon her hair tumbled down in thick waves over her shoulders and back.

Nigel’s thumbs trailed lightly over Eloise’s cheekbones. “You are so very lovely.” He cupped her jaw in his hand and leaned in. This time when his lips met hers, Eloise was prepared for the jolt. She opened her lips and invited him inside. Nigel accepted the invitation and plunged his tongue deep in her mouth.

Eloise moaned. The feelings that Nigel was inciting in her body were new and unfamiliar but not unwelcome. Why had no one told her? She could only suspect that this knowledge, if freely available, would lead even more couples to anticipate their marriage vows. If she had known before that Nigel could make her feel like this, she surely could not have resisted the temptation.

Nigel pulled back and Eloise protested with a sound of distress. “Don’t worry, my dear, I simply want to introduce you to another delight.”

    Team demon. I like that he would do anything to protect what he cares about by whatever means necessary.

  26. I actually would prefer something different. I like seeing the different aspects and perspectives on both “species” In folklore, not all demons are evil. And in some depictions, not all angels have compassion for humans just compassion for what they are told to do. That is what interests me more. If there was a novel with a demon that didn’t act hard and mean and turn soft that is different. Or a mean angel who has problems admitting he likes or loves a human. Those are the kinds of novels that really perk me up to read it. So I can’t choose between the two but I do like different variations of them in romance because it’s stimulating. It’s not predictable.

    Demons are the ultimate bad boys, and I have a major “thing” for bad boys, so I’m definitely Team Demon! His defining characteristic would be — he’d be damaged, but ultimately redeemable!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    I would have to be greedy and have them both! I would have to go with a male demon and a female angel though… got to have my cake and eat it too!

    I like them both, but I prefer demons, especially those with a bit of a soft side. I particularly like Al from Kim Harrison’s Hallows series

    Thanks!

    Cool excerpt. I’m in a steampunk phase myself.
    And as for the vote, gotta go with demons.
    😉

  34. I like angels, but I prefer demons. The main characteristic of my perfect demon would be protective of the one he has fallen for because he knows that if he lost her that would be worse than going back to hell.

  35. Fallen Angels! Okay, maybe demons. I love bad boys! 😀 Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

    How about an angel with a bad boy attitude? Best of both worlds! 😀 Great excerpt!

  38. angels

    bn100candg(at)hotmail(dot)com

  39. how can I choose? both have characteristics I like. The Demon/bad boy is a fantasy for me and was almost always the hero I went for, but after reading some books with Angels, I kind of am torn. I have an insane crush on Carter, the Angel from Richelle Mead’s Succubus series. HUGELY INSANE!

  40. Angels…because they’re something that can be corrupted – what a challenge!
