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 pictures of an ethereal heaven in gossamer gold and Angel Dust. The reader is quickly transported to...more

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...more

Heavenly Lover (A Guardian Angel Romance) Book 1

By: Sharon Hamilton

Genre: Paranormal Romance, with a bit of spice

First Sentence: This was all wrong.

Claire, a Guardian Angel, holds a record of never losing a soul. She’s sent on an urgent mission to save Daniel DePalma from himself.

Daniel lost the love of his life and wishes to end it all.

His friend, Joshua Brandon, a Dark Angel, is collecting souls and like Claire, has never lost one. He’s a master of manipulation, and Daniel plays right into his...more

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.

Claire is a Guardian Angel that has been sent to save the life and soul of Daniel, an artist, who has decided to take his own life due to the loss of the love of his girlfriend. While Claire is trying to protect and guide Daniel back to the happy life he once had, her feelin...more

"Come to me Angel."


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...more
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.
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.
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

Heavenly Lover was my first Sharon Hamilton book I read and I must say this was a great love story of heaven & earth.. heart & soul... good & evil!! I loved your view about our faith to our Father! The love He have to mankind!! You are the only Author who put Him in writing and I praised you for that! And "The Letter" OMG!! you made me cry in that letter... I was sobbing... I couldn't stop crying even I finished reading the letter... My eyes was puffy and aching when I finished readi...more
It just droned on most of the book. I caught myself skimming because I was getting bored.

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.
