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 ...more

3.5 - I'm Happy This is The Start Of A Series Stars.

When I originally finished Trusting An Angel there wasn’t a huge amount of detail as to whether the book was a standalone or the beginning of a series. Luckily Missy Jane confirmed that this is in fact the start of a series – Archangels, and there will be more books in the future.

This makes me very happy, reason being, I have a HUGE lady-boner when it comes to men with wings. Too such an extent that undergarments need to be frequently changed

I took a chance on this one. I think it's because I just want an angel story to work out, finally. And on that level Missy Jane delivers—at least, insofar as it doesn't suck and the angels aren't ridiculous or cloying. She dodges much of the theological issues by giving the angels some distance or disconnect with deity and the demonic forces arrayed against them drive good action and plot/character development.

I even liked the main characters, though I couldn't help the occasional derisive snort

What a great start to a new paranormal romance series. TRUSTING AN ANGEL follows Zerach and Isadora as they fall in love and defeat those who stand in their way.

Zerach is a bit of a playboy that doesn't expect to settle down. He has wanted Isodora for a while but as the blurb says, she isn't one-night-stand material. He also happens to be an Angel. Isadora is as innocent as they come and her god parents seem to think that she should be used to save their business by marrying h

Review Courtesy All Things Urban Fantasy

I don’t know if it’s a throwback to being raised Catholic, but I just can’t seem to get enough of angel-themed books. TRUSTING AN ANGEL did absolutely nothing to disavow me of that love. Before you get to the unearthly beauty/sexiness, there’s just something to be said for beings of power and knowledge without having to reconcile dark sides. And, hello, wings. I can’t get over the utter coolness of a guy with wings.

Maybe there’s a twelve-step program for m

When I read the blurb on this one and saw scarred heroine and I was immediately captivated. Great premise I thought, but the execution wasn't what I expected. I expected a lot of angst from the heroine because of the scarring. I expected a hero/angel who had a bit more…I don't know but intensity and complexity are the only word I can think of. I mean these angels have been around since the beginning of time and considering their function (to protect humans). I assumed I would get a certain ...more

Missy Jane Trusting an Angel by Missy Jane

Curl up on your couch, with a flashlight, and get ready to enter a world of Archangel, demons, goodness, evil and destiny!!

Zerachial Maxwell is rich and powerful, but he has a secret. He is an Archangel that lives on earth to protect humans and when necessary dispatch Demons back to hell. He is not alone with his mission, he has 6 fellow Archangel brothers to help. Zerach's human persona, this time, is a rich businessman and nightclub owner. By night, Zerach sits on rooftops and stal

This is my first time reading a Missy Jane story and I was not disappointed! I've been suffering from book hangover and needed this quick, sweet and sexy read to pull me out of my doldrums.

Zerachial is an archangel who has been living on Earth for thousands of years with his brothers to protect humans from demons that escape Hell. Zerach is a wealthy business man and has a reputation for being a playboy. Isadora is his secretary and secretly lusts after him, or so she thinks (he can tell) LOL!
Zerach has a bad reputation. He is said to be a player and owning a shady nightclubs doesn't help his matters any. He really only wants one woman and that is his assistant Isadora. He tries to keep his distance because he doesn't want to hurt her in anyway and her guardians don't like him at all. Also the fact he is an archangel and has to fight demons keeps him from getting to close to her. Isadora wants Zerach but is afraid to let him know. She knows that despite his reputation she knows he ...more

There's a gentleness to this story that lingered even during the difficult scenes. It acted almost like an anchor, a reminder that no matter what was coming ahead everything would be okay.

I love Zerach. He's a warrior, a guardian, an archangel through and through. But the edge that comes when he goes to battle isn't always there, making his human persona more appealing. His assistant Isadora wouldn't disagree, lol. He's sweet, kind, and caring toward, but jealous, protective, and possessive of h

Not your mama's angels...

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
Trusting an Angel is just like another paranormal romance with angel theme. It's have an overused cliche, a bordering-Mary-Sue heroine, almost too good to be true hero, and a resemble to BDB (What with PNR and a merry band of heroes that so much alike BDB?). Oh, also some typos as well! This is the first time I read an Entangled title that have typos. Even I read the ARC version, usually the previous ARCs were typos free. This, make me disappointed and I hope the final version is free of errors

I love these types of paranormal stories, love them. The whole nice regular girl working for a hot man she has been lusting forever, not ever being able to tell him how she feels only to find out he has been feeling the same way. Love these stories.

Isadora has had feelings for Zerach for a long time, but she feels that there is no chance that he would ever feel the same for her. First off Zerach is a known playboy who never goes out with a woman more than once. Second, he is Isadora’s boss.

My thoughts:

Trusting an Angel didn't leave a hugely lasting impression, but I did enjoy reading it.

I found the premise of Isadora being pushed into a marriage a little suspect. A more subtle effort to get her into a relationship with Jake might have fit. I just can't understand the kind of demand in a contemporary setting. I know that it's a little ridiculous alongside the whole angel thing, but I found it unrealistic and off-putting. I'd rather have had Isadora's godparents manipulate situatio

I just loved this book! It was a real piece of work and I couldn't stop smiling during the entire thing.

I loved the characters and their playful banter. Wow, I sound really old in my mind, that's not good. Anyway, Dora as we will call her works for a dude named Zerach, I honestly don't see how she didn't think that name was weird, if I was her I would have shaken my head, because seriously, that's like the worst human name ever. I know he's an angel but he's living in the human world. The author

This is book one in a series, but each one will have a HEA per couple. The author will continue with her world building, character growth, and of course the main story arc. In the start of this series, we learn of 7 earth-bound archangels, and they consider themselves brothers even if not entirely related to one another. The story centers around Zerach and how his love for her his assistant has grown, but he’s not sure how to win her over because her family does not approve of the man.
Zerach is the owner of multiple businesses and an archangel. His duty togehter with his brothers, is to hunt demons and try to keep the human realm calm. His secretary Isadora secretly longs for his attention but when she gets it, things are a bit different than expected.

This story was a nice read with some hot scenes. I really liked the brothers, although we don't know that much about all of them one could feel the connection between them
Zerach was a worthy hero - especially for an Angel ;)...

GAH!! I was hoping something different would happen but nope…it.didn’t. Hey to each their own. I fell in love with Zerach and Dora straight away so I wanted their happiness. Even though I would have made their outcome a bit different I still believe everything is as it should be. As I mentioned earlier there are 7 brothers though on 6 are active because Gabriel has been silent for a millennia. Well we got to know Rafe the most and I’m hoping

Isadora is attracted to her boss, Zarechiel. She doesn't know he's a demon-fighting archangel who is also attracted to her because of her innocence and purity. But her childhood friend Jake also wants her for her innocence, and blackmails her into accepting his marriage proposal.

Zarech realizes there's a demon taint on Jake, and wants to protect Isadora. More than that, he wants her for himself. But Isadora is holding back because of a secret, and Zarech would have to reveal his true self to he

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

As the start of a new series, this book had a very unique spin on your usual angel story. These angels are fighters, lovers (yes, sex happens), and protectors of the human race.

Zerach is a nightclub owner, known womanizer, and an angel. He’s been happy with his place in this world until Isadora. Dora has been his assistant for years, but it took a pre-arranged marriage (via blackmail) to really bring out Zerach’s true feelings for

Zerachial isn't human. He's an archangel here with his brothers to protect the human race. He cares for his secretary, Isadora, and she for him, but both hide this from each other. The attraction between these two is both tender and romantic. This relationship is very special. Sadly Dora is being forced to marry a childhood friend, Jake. She needs to save her godparents from bankruptcy. Danger increases when a demon starts stalking her. What will Zerach do to protect her? Trusting an Angel is a ...more
Apr 23, 2014 Patricia rated it really liked it thinking naughty thoughts about an archangel a sin? Dora has running fantasies about Zerach (her boss) not knowing he is actually an archangel. When Zerach begins to sit up and take notice things in Dora's life is taking a turn and not for the better. He saves her from an attack, fights demons, deals with her godparents, and a crazed friend. This relationship has some obstacles to say the least.
The cast of characters are appealing and charismatic. I really hope the author has this pla

Trusting An Angel by Missy Jane was an intriguing read with many colourful characters, tense moments with some light-hearted points as well. A cast of characters from archangels to demons to half demons and humans make this book one entertaining read and a good start to the Archangels book series.

I enjoyed this book and it was a pretty quick read. Isadora was a great, strong willed characters with some realistic flaws. Zerach is a hottie. Although he is an angel, he definitely has a bad boy vibe. I totally wanted to kick Jake in the groin. The brothers are all pretty awesome. I'd say Rafe is my fave. Overall, it's a good story with action and some hotness.

Isadora has been Zerach’s secretary to his human persona for a few years now and has secretly loved him all this time but has issues of her own that keep her at a distance from him.

This was a fascinating book. Missy writes with a different twist and many of the conflicts in the book didn't resolve in a predictable way. I like that in a book. I received this as a prize/gift in a facebook party so it wasn't a book I set out to investigate and purchase. That being said I will be looking for her subsequent books from Entangled and at Samhain. She has a Gargoyle book that just released and I wasn't sure if it was romance or horror based on the's erotic romance and I ...more

I enjoyed this story. It took a while for me to get involved. I have never been big on the paranormal level but this book gave a nice balance. I actually started this book read a few chapters then started a finish a different one before returning to Trusting an Angel. I am glad I returned to it. I enjoyed it greatly once I finally gave it a good chance to catch my attention!!!!
