Here is the summary of the book:
I don't do dangerous. Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... NIGHTWATCHERS When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

With the fall from above the team of angels and demons need to be found and made remember their task and the hunky dirty blonde with the most striking blue eyed angel Bishop, the leader of the group needs her help to find his team members. Without meaning to Samantha becomes a part of the group - a Snow White with her own motley group of dwarfs. But what of her apparent attraction towards Bishop and how long can she control her hunger for souls that remains to be seen.... Maybe this problem is just the beginning.
First of the Nightwatchers series, Dark Kiss lays the ground work here, a solid one too. There is a perfect coherency with all the parts of the story. The setting, the mood and the theme are all inclination of the coming of something wicked. Most of all the balance is maintained and balance is all that matters. To accentuate such Ms. Rowen throws in some intense characters, Samantha, Bishop, Kraven and a horde of others to play their role. They share a yin-yang chemistry. All good things need something dark to keep the balance.
Samantha is a simple teenage girl who spends her day invisible but it all changes with one kiss now everyone wants a bite of her(literally) but she is strong willed and knows right from wrong to know that she needs to get her soul back in order to prevent disaster. Bishop is the angle who is the leader of the group but the fall did something to him, it messed him up his head and he craves Samantha's touch because with only her touch does he feel alright. Kraven is the demon in the group, there are two more in the group but i'm not going into that right now. Kraven is sarcastic, rash and is perfectly capable to speak his mind and most of all cares for the mission and his brother.
With Michelle Rowen's intense and creative wordplay, Dark Kiss turns out to be a very compelling read. And it is enough to keep the reader at it until they get to the end - the biggest compliment to any author. Dark Kiss is a passionate, compelling and intense read that you can't miss out on. I'm definitely waiting on WICKED KISS now.
"Its intense, its sensual and its dark - this is just the beginning for Samantha, Bishop, Kraven and the crew"
