For Love of an Angel by Rosalie Lario

Since Rosalie is due to visit our blog next Monday, I thought you might like a little taste of her work. Here's my take on her debut novella.

For Love of An Angel

Ebook available at various ebook outlets.
Review copy sent to me by the author. Thanks, Rosalie!

In Rosalie Lario’s new Paranormal Romance novella For Love of An Angel, the heroine, Eva Smyth lives in a New York, in a world where thirty years ago, a veil fell between the real and spiritual realms, and the Angels came. But the result was not like anyone on Earth might have expected. These Angels didn’t come to save humans, they enslaved them, instead, making everything one does in life, subject to their twisted Consortium rules. Her life, her home, her job and her future relationships, are all subject to their whims.

But there are some angels who resist this and would help the humans throw off this dictatorship. They are considered Fallen, outcast, and hunted by the Consortium. To consort with a Fallen means death. Michael is one such Fallen Angel, and when he appears in Eva’s living room claiming that she’s fated to be his mate…well, to say she’s surprised is an understatement. But, despite the danger, there’s something about Michael that Eva can’t resist. Could she really find love with a Fallen? And why is he so attracted to her, a measly little human, anyway? Could there be more to her than meets the eye?

In For Love of An Angel Rosalie Lario creates a unique world for Eva and her angelic lover, a dark dystopia, and an offer a girl would be a fool to pass up. The love between Eva and Michael will be tempting enough even for Paranormal Romance fans, while the heat these two generate together will please readers who prefer steamier stories. My grade?

For Love of An Angel makes for a very well done, compelling, and interesting read. Looking forward to book two! If you’d like to check this story out, it’s available on Kindle, at Amazon, on the Barnes and Noble’s Nook, and for other e-formats via Smashwords.

Self-publishing with Rosalie Lario

And also, if you're interested, over on my wordpress blog (this is mostly for the writers here) I put up a little ponderance on the subject of Self-publishing, musing on the interesting observations author Rosalie Lario has talked about on her blog.

And don't forget, Rosalie will be here on June 20th. :) We are looking forward to bringing her post to you, now that the hand's finally healed. *sheepish grin*

Taking a chance on Anna Small's newest romance

cover art by Jinger Heaston
Taking a Chance on Forever
by Anna Small
published by Bookstrand
(my review copy came via the author)
In romance author Anna Small’s latest novel, a contemporary romance novel entitled Taking A Chance on Forever, she tells of two college sweethearts who missed out on true love. Kate Thorne chased her dream to France, to pursue an artistic career while her boyfriend Dan Reynolds stayed behind in the states to tackle a business career. Along the way, Dan's become a CEO of a software company and Kate a buyer for a ritzy San Francisco art gallery, they both had children with others... And now, lo and behold, Dan’s son is marrying Kate’s daughter.

What are the odds, Kate wonders, and can she really face Dan after all these years? Can they do so without dredging up the past? And if they do dredge up the past, is Kate opening herself up to heartbreak? Maybe she should just skip out on the wedding. But nature seems to have other plans, and she and Dan will be forced to face each other--and spend a stormy night alone in a dark house. Well, at least it's a good opportunity to clear the air between them before the wedding, and he is widowed. But what’ll happen when they do?And what about that perky young  fiancĂ©e  of his?

You’ll have to read to find out.

It’s no secret I enjoyed Anna Small’s first novel, (the historical romance To Tame the Wild Wind released via The Wild Rose Press) and yes we are friends. But you know I never recommend something I don't personally love. This novel, though a little different from the first, true, stands up just as well. Truth to tell, I loved it. It had me in tears for roughly half the book--in a good way. I just felt so bad for these characters, and couldn't figure out how it was going to end happily. That’s not to say it’s missing the obligatory HEA, romance fans, it’s there. You’ll see. :) So yes, again,

If you’d like to check Taking A Chance on Forever out it is available in ebook, and paperback via Siren-Bookstrand here, and also in paperback at Amazon, here, and in paperback and Nook versions at barnesandnoble.com.

Oh, and she has posted an outtake from the story on her blog here, if you’d like to check it out. ;) An epilogue is coming soon too.  Or you can find out more about her and her works on her website here.

Hi all. I just wanted to pop in here and relay a couple things. I had a little household accident this weekend (think broken glass and lots of blood) which resulted in stitches and lots of gauze bandages on my hand, so typing is tough right now. I'm one-handed. So not fun! Once i get the stitches out, doctor's orders willing, i hope to be able to post revies again. i'm sure they'll be piling up. In the pipeline: Anna Small's Taking a Chance on Forever (let me just say i loved it!), possibly chamber of secrets (gdoes that really need more introduction?), &maybe depending on where they stand a few others. Holding the e-reader--noy so easy. I'll get to them asap. sorry about this.

In the meantime booklovers inc. is hosting vicki pettersson, w/ a giveaway, here and suzanne @ preternatura is doing her new release giveawy w/ some nifty titles to choose from, here. Special congrats to fellow TARA gal Terri Garey on here new release!

Thank you for bearing with this unexpected hiatus. the mummy refuses to take over for me--bastard that he is. ;)
