She’s breaking the rules. Again.

But "liberating" an ancient text from the collection of a human—an Australian drug lord—could save a boy’s life.

Sarah, an angel with a rebellious streak, is captured by a sexy djinni while on a mission of mercy. It stretches credibility to have an angel who was worried about being caught sneaking out of heaven for the right reasons, throwing h...more

He wore jeans, zipped but unbuttoned, and nothing else. The bones of his face were dominant angles, the nose aquiline, the wide mouth made for sin. Blue eyes were astonishingly bright against the darkness of his gleaming wet hair and skin.

Sara and Filip are two pawns in a game, struggling to do what is right, and best, while playing within the guidelines. If they can manage to work together, they might just be able to win.

Instead, she’s portrayed as a vibrant being who would do anything for goodness sake, even that means she’ll break the heavenly...more
I'm also a huge re-reader. Some of my favourite authors include Terry Pratchett, Jayne Ann Krentz, Shelly Laurenston and Ilona Andrews.
