Title: Sergei's Angel
Series: The Night Movers #4
Author: Helen Bright
Holly Fraser has known nothing but loss in her short life and now finds herself the lone carer of her younger brother. With financial difficulties piling high she accepts a job from the mysterious, yet devastatingly attractive, Sergei Petrov.
Sergei is a born immortal vampire who is often misunderstood, mostly due to his happy-go-lucky nature and ability to create chaos from good intentions.
Recent events have left him disheartened, yet a chance meeting at a funeral (of all places) fills Sergei with hope that a happy future may await him after all.
But withholding the truth rarely ends well and a shock revelation could destroy everything.
Does Holly have the resilience she needs to be Sergei’s Angel? Or are neither destined to find their Heaven?

Book 4 in this series is all about Sergei. Sergei has been a part of this series from the very beginning he's always been in the background, but now we finally meet the real Sergei. We join him in his chance of love & happiness, we can now get to understand just what makes him tick.
Sergei is at a funeral of an ex-Night Movers employee, when the granddaughter of the deceased catches his eye; her name Holly. Holly lives with her younger brother Matty. Their gran was the one looking after them, but now she's gone it falls to Holly. Holly knows that this won't be easy especially as she has no job, her gran's insurance has covered the funeral but other than that they are running out of money & the heating is broken & until Holly finds a job she cannot afford to get it fixed.
After the funeral there is a funeral tea at the local community hall, this is where Sergei witnesses how bad things must be for Holly. Sergei is stood with Maggie; a Night Movers employee; when Holly comes over & asks Maggie if Night Movers have any daytime job vacancies, when Maggie says no Sergei has an idea. He offers Holly a position as his PA, she gladly accepts. After a brief discussion they arrange to meet again & Holly hugs Sergei, now Sergei shows for sure that he wants Holly.
Will Sergei and Holly be more than colleagues? What will Holly think when she learns that Sergei is a born immortal?
Sergei is an amazing character, he has been since we first met him. He is loyal, loving, reliable & funny. Once he meets Holly he shows that he also has a softer side which is why he fears telling Holly that he is a born immortal. After seeing Sergei in the first 3 books this nervousness & uncertainty seemed a little uncharacteristic for him but it was a needed development in his personality, it also made him more real too.
Holly is a strong young woman, she's not afraid to do what is needed in order to try & provide for both Matty & herself, although Matty seems to come first to her. At first she seems unsure about Sergei's actions & affections but as time goes by they grow closer, she knows that Matty enjoys being around Sergei & that Sergei adores Matty.
The plot moves at a great pace, never becoming boring. The descriptions given are written well & really help to draw you further into this world of humans & immortals, making you feel every bit a part the scenes & events. The characters interact well together & they display many levels of realism, their personalities have gotten stronger & become clearer throughout. Each of them has a place in my heart & they will be missed.
I have loved reading every page of Sergei's Angel, it has been a joy to have been a part of Sergei's world, to have felt & witnessed all of his nervousness, happiness & humour in his story. For me this book deserves a rating of
That's it I've finally come to the end of this fantastic series. *stares at Helen* I am looking forward to see what Helen does next & I'll be (im)patiently waiting & stalking her! ;)
If you enjoy reading romance books I'd definitely recommend giving The Night Movers Series a read.
