In Sweet Evil, by Wendy Higgins, Anna is constantly battling with herself. She wants to lie and cheat and provoke and sin, but she’s always managed to keep herself in check.
Until she meets Kaidan.
Anna is the daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen angel; Kaidan is the son of the demon of Lust. The dark side in her is drawn to him, fully. She wants to let the rest of herself slip, too. When it comes time to choose between the light and the dark, she shouldn’t think of Kaidan: choosing him would mean giving into the dark side forever. The temptation to succumb to her evil half is always with her, and it might prove too great.
