Dear readers,

Wishing you a very happy holiday season! I'm slowing down my posting a little bit through December and January while I get my new job as an author's assistant off the ground... and because it's the holidays and I am pretty pooped right now. Why is it humans don't hibernate again? I have the CHRISTMAS WONDER BLOG HOP going on with a $100 Amazon GC giveaway and I'm giving away one of my favorite books on audio PLUS I'm doing a giveaway every weekend in December and at random on social media! But wait... there's more!!! I've also got a few giveaways going on over at Rhialistic, including an audio copy of THE HOBBIT!

Review: Trusting an Angel by Missy Jane

Trusting an Angel (Archangels #1) by Missy Jane
Paranormal Romance, Category Romance, Angels, Demons
Ebook $2.99 (154 pages, COVET)
As the owner of a string of successful nightclubs all over the world, Zerach can have any woman--except for his assistant Isadora O'Donnell. First off, Isadora isn't a one-night-stand kind of girl, and second, her dominating godparents don't approve of him. There's also the fact that he is an archangel with a mission to protect humans from demons, something Isadora can never find out about.
Isadora secretly longs for Zerach's attention but her scarred body and his playboy ways keep her from acting on her feelings. With her only family on the brink of bankruptcy, shes determined to help them, even if it means trying to forget Zerach and marrying the womanizing Jake, a man she'll never love.
Zerach tries to keep Isadora at arm's length, but when a demon starts stalking her, Zerach will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. But protecting her could cost him his wings.

Not your mama's angels... (4 stars)

Isadora O'Donnell lost her parents several years ago and while she has a trust fun and god parents who've been good to her she doesn't exactly see eye-to-eye with them on her taste in men. She has a huge crush on Zerach, her boss known for his playboy lifestyle. But if marrying Jake, the childhood friend that grew up to be a cad, is the only way to help her god parents avoid bankruptcy she's willing to give it a shot. As an archangel, Zerach recognizes Dora's innocence and senses that something is off about the man she's considering marrying. Yet if he's going to protect her that means letting her closer to him and for an angel that's a life altering thing.

Angel and demon mythologies in paranormal romance can be a bit hit-and-miss with me. They're a challenge to do with any uniqueness and rarely do angels tread that perfect line between human and godly. Jane's archangels were surprisingly well developed with both endearingly human qualities and things that kept them just a little otherworldly. I wasn't too keen on Dora at first but once I saw she had backbone I liked her a lot. Together they have sparkling chemistry and the steamy side of the storyline was gradual and quite sensual which made the build-up toward her revealing her scars very good.

I'm often a big fan of secondary characters and the other archangels were no exception. With the addition of another female character, Asta, whom I really liked it, there are hints at what the next series entry's couple will be. While this was definitely a romance the demon plot wasn't so bogged down in those elements that it lacked a sense of urgency and adventure either.

Very engrossing, with a solid world building that should expand well in further installments I really liked TAA which I was actually surprised on since I wasn't too big on another angel story. I think those who've had a track record with them like mine might find it a nice change of pace while those who love angel romances will like the new elements brought to the table.
