YES! YES! YES! EXCELLENT EROTICA! OMG, I totally loved it and want more.

Ok, I am calming down now so I can do the review (laughing out loud). First let me tell you that this Fallen Angel is pure sex on two legs and more. Even though he was kicked out of heaven for hating humans his stubbornness soon changes when he is almost ran over with a car by Nadira and she turns his world upside down. Nadira is a little different from most for she does believe in Angels and has in fact had previous visions
3.5 Stars

I have come to really like CF's work and will pretty much read anything.

I did enjoy this but it is difficult to seriously rate it as it is a very short story at around 55 pages. I did like the premise of the story but there just wasn't enough of it and by the time I got into it it was over and finished which was pretty frustrating. I will go on and read the second one and hope that I feel a little more satisfied as it is nearly twice as long as this one!

Eh...the premise was intriguing, but it wasn't followed through in the actual story. However, this could be my fault for not paying closer attention to genres when I find new reading material. This one seemed to follow the 90% erotica/10% storyline formula which doesn't usually work for me. So I was a bit disappointed when there was no real depth to the story and no real character development what-so-ever. Pretty much just lust-at-first-sight, lots of rolling around in the sheets, then a semi-fo ...more
I enjoyed this - a short story that reminded me a lot of the movie The Prophecy with fallen angels and battles in heaven. In this story, Nadira has been seeing visions of angels all her life, and one dark and stormy night (love the cliché!) she stops to rescue a bleeding man. The bleeding man, however, is not a man at all but the fallen angel Gadriel, and their night of passion offers him redemption and peace. A lovely story.
I loved this e-book. I think I've found a new breed of hero - ANGELS. I had never read a book about Angels before but this on had me from the first page. When Gadriel saw Nadira, he knew that she was his. I love the whole MINE thing, it gets me envery time. This story has passion, heart, and soul. I recommend to those who want a short story that totally draws them in. I can't wait to read book two - Dark Admirer.

Loved it, just wasn't long enough..... This book could of been amazing but she didn't really go any place with it. Really wished she would do a re write and add the struggle they went thru while he was on earth and what really happened to Mary other than she was cured.
Short and sweet - just the way I like it. If you want a quickie ;-) this one is for you.

I love Charlotte Featherstone's erotic books, much better than her historical romance. I'm ready to read the next Watcher #2.
This was a very good and HOT read but was way too short, i wanted to know more about Gadriel and the story finished abruptly just as it was getting really interesting. IMHO i think this would make a great series

Very good story. I wish that it could have been a little longer. Maybe Ms. Featherstone can create a full length series introducing this sexy angels.
This book was WONDERFUL!! I gave it 4 stars because I really wish that it was longer!
Great quick read, pretty hot but too short. I wanted more info on all the characters.
I liked it, but I feel it could have been so much more.
i loved it and it only took me 1 day to read..
A short story I really enjoyed.

Hi I write erotic historical romance for Harlequin Spice, as well as erotic paranormal romance under the name Sophie Renwick. In 2011, I'll be debuting my mainstream, Victorian set historicals through HQN.

I love talking about books, and have found some new friends, and really good book recommends here on Goodreads. I really love this community.
