I admit, I thought this was going to be a typical good angel vs. bad angel story, but it’s so much more than that! Hamilton weaves a beautiful paranormal romance driven by deep, multi-layered, flawed characters that are so much more human than their powerful inhuman personalities can believe.

The author pens beautiful active descriptions that play like movie scenes in the mind. She leaves out no details, and has some damn hot sex scenes laced with heavy emotions. Her take on heaven and hell are a

Disclaimer: Sharon and I are in the same Critique Group where I watched HEAVENLY LOVER mature.

Sharon Hamilton exerts a canny understanding of love in its many manifestations. She catches parent/child love in Claire's relationship to her heavenly parents, shows us companion love in friendships and female/male love in her bond with artist Daniel who despairs of life and love. Creating an other-world can be difficult for a writer to convey; this is never a problem for Hamilton as she paints picture

I am not usually into the Angel type genre, but this one is blowing my mind and I am loving it!!!!

Extremely well written and lots of detail. Miss Hamilton draws you right into the story and keeps you there waiting for more.

Used to Hamilton's military romance novels this was different for me. The details about everything Claire sees, smells and touches was too much. I can appreciate the secondary characters as they are primary in the following books but the story was drawn out. If you love details and the romantic idea of being in love with an Angel you would definitely enjoy this. I will continue to read the next stories as I must find out about Josh and Audrey, our dark angels.

*received an audio copy in exchange for an honest review*

I'm a huge fan of Sharon Hamilton's SEAL books, so I knew I would love this series as well. I mean, angles are kind of awesome. A few are even a pain in the butt!

The story of Claire, a sweet, kind hearted angel of the heavens who is sent down to help save a charge, Daniel. Daniel is a broken hearted, artist that is at the end of his ropes. He's ready to end it all... but Claire is having none of that. What she, nor Daniel know is that som

She has never failed to save a soul and she doesn't plan on changing that now, although her mother is planning on retiring Claire from Guardian status at the end of this mission. Claire is determined to remain in her current position, feeling her talents would be wasted on teaching. When she first sees Daniel, however, she cannot completely control her thoughts and feelings. Can she keep her emotions separate from h

"Come to me Angel."

~Daniel

Heavenly Lover is the story of Daniel, an artist who has lost everything, including his way and Claire, the guardian angel sent to save him from himself. You know those times when the idea looks good on paper, that everything should just be oh so perfect, yet it isn't? Yeah, that. I had high hopes for this one and while I can't say it's a bad read, in my opinion it could have been a whole lo

I have read/listened to this book twice. I enjoyed it even more the second time around. I’m really a “SEAL baby” and although I enjoy the occasional paranormal here and there it’s not what I usually go for. I wasn’t surprised that I enjoyed Sharon’s paranormal rendition of the heavenly kind because I expected this book to be no less than her SEAL Brotherhood Series. Sharon didn’t disappoint! I enjoyed it so much… my heart aching for Claire all the way to the unexpected end! I loved the final twi ...more

Another awesome read by Sharon. I wasn't sure what to expect when it's a romance book that includes Angels. But then I read it and was amazed by the wonderful and amazing love story I found. If you like romance this is a must read.

I then decided I needed to listen to the audio version of this book and I was blown away.
I loved it when I read it but it went up the stairway when I listened to thce audio version

Refreshingly new storyline
What a wonderful and refreshingly new storyline. Well written and very enjoyable to read. Gets you to think that all things are possible with true love and with The Father in this book. The fight against good and evil where good can win and have it all. Some wins and losses for both side of the coin. Great character interplay throughout the book. Love how the author makes the Angels a little more human in this book and that nothing is perfect.

This is a very romantic very sensual love story, with a difference.
Claire is an Angel. Daniel a human artist. Claire and Daniel battle their growing love and the threat from the dark Angels and heaven.
Reading this brought the romantic back out in me. It was so touching in parts it made me cry, and believe in everlasting love. It gives you a wonderful feel good factor.
I even liked the bad guys the dark Angels

3*** this is a good story but a little slow in places. This authors portrayal of heaven doesn't look like a place I would want to live. Claire our Angel heroine has to save the soul of Daniel a suicidal artist. She is told before she leaves heaven for the job NOT to let him see her. But being down on earth holds many temptations. Especially when a dark angel is so heavily involved.
Julianna
Liked this one, but not my favorite. It was an interesting concept though. I think it might be interesting if she could write something about Angela and Josh and how they could be redeemed. But still good.

Read in the Sinfully supernatural anthology.

I'm used to Sharon's Seals series but have to say this was a nice change and I do love angels <3

This is a cute story and well developed characters that make you want root for them till the end. This is a quick and easy read. Highly recommend no doubt <3
