Another winner in this enjoyable series. Even though these are shorts, you get a real feel for the characters and there is enough substance that it propels the story forward. Ethan and Tayla were a delightful couple, who after 12 years of longing for one another, are finally able to act on their feelings. As her essence continued to call to him he could barely keep his desire for her contained, and ultimately they burned up the pages. Such devilish angels…YUM! I loved getting a glimpse of Michae ...more

My poor, poor kindle. Not only am I suffering from a major case of "kindle thumb" from gripping it so it's now doubling as fan! Spring 2012 can't come soon enough. Book 3...I need you...asap.

Tayla is a human/angel half blood...or Nephilim. She has honey blonde curls, a cute small frame, and resides in New Orleans. We learn pretty quickly that

My Thoughts:

I want to start by pointing out that I read the first novella in this series back in November of 2011. (I know it's been a LONG time!) I loved that novella, but after that long of a break...I can't really remember the details. With that being said, you don't have to read the first novella to read and understand this one.

I'll explain a little about this world again first and then go into my thoughts on the book. The angels have reveled themselves to all of humankind, they are

Book 2 in the Fallen Warriors series

Ethan is an angel – and one of the Fallen. Condemned to die by others of his race when he didn’t go along with their plan to eradicate the human race, he barely escaped with his life. Ethan knows he’s among the lucky. After all, his best friend, Caleb, died – leaving a nephilim daughter (his best kept secret) behind. Ethan has known ‘Ta

First let me say - if you haven't read the first book in this series "For Love of an Angel", go check it out. These books can be read as stand alone books, but you will understand the history of the fallen much better if you start with the first one. Besides that, it is an excellent book that you won't want to miss.

I love this series. I fell in love with The Fallen in the first book, and the second in the series did not disappoint. In the first book we got a glimpse of Ethan and Tayla's story,

My Review:
I really like this series! In this book, we get to meet Tayla. She is another nephilim who actually knew her angel father, until he died when she was 16 years old. Ethan was his best friend and was with him when he died and Tayla has always blamed Ethan for not saving him. At 16, she had a huge crush on Ethan and he felt the same draw to her, but she was too young for him, so he stayed away. Now it's 10 years later and Ethan is ready to move on Tayla and make her his mate. He just has

Ethan, one of the Fallen Angels, needs to find his mate and ensure his maximum potential when he and the other Fallen Angels wage their war against the Angels who seek the destruction of mankind. Unlike his other brethren, he knows who his mate is. The problem is, he needs to overcome her animosity and hurt feelings in order to get her to see what they are to each other.

At six, Tayla met Ethan and told hersel

Vampires, Witches and Werewolves watch out there is a new supernatural out who is just as sexy and oozes that alpha male like quality, and oh yeah they have sexy sexy black wings!!!

I am talking about Angels, Rosalie Larios Fallen Angels to be exact! I read and loved the first book For Love of an Angel with Eva and Michael and Angels Desire with Ethan and Tayla was just as amazing!! Ethan is just sex on legs and him and Tayla throw off enough sexual tension that will leave you panting. Of coarse

Really enjoyed this follow-up to the first book in the series. I loved Ethan and Tayla. I really felt for Ethan when he was flashing back to the day the fallen were condemned and he had to watch his best friend Caleb (Tayla's father) die in the fire they were all sentenced to burn in for speaking out in defence of human kind.

I could understand Tayla's reluctance to give her heart to Ethan, her reasons may have been illogical but that's the thing about fears, they are rarely logical and she'd alr

Rosalie Lario/Angel’s Desire (The Fallen Warriors Series)


Ethan is one of the twelve outcasts, one of The Fallen, who are trying to prevent the extinction of humankind.
All angels need to find their true mate to preserve their immortality. The mate must have angel blood, too. Ethan found his mate years ago, but fate was not on his side. Tayla was only sixteen and he was still mated to another. He pushed her away, not wanting to hurt her, but in the end he did so anyway. Her fath

All I really have to say is, “I want some Fallen angel sex.” I’ve never been the adventurous type when it comes to sex, but I’d be willing to try sex in the air if I had a gorgeous angel like Ethan holdin’ my ass up.

In Book Two of this series, the fight continues to save humankind and Ethan has come to claim Tayla, in more ways than one. The one difference between Tayla and Eva (the heroine from Book One) is that, unlike Eva, Tayla knows she’s nephilim and knows how to stay under the radar. She
Okay, I have to say this book was way too short even for a short story. I love whole aspect of angels taking over humankind and all but it isn't really being focused on as much as I would like it to! The romance is great and the characters are fantastic but their is no action there to keep me glued to the edge of my seat. In the first book, there was action but in this one it's there for about 2 pages and everything is fine and the characters are living happily ever after! I mean a brilliant ide ...more

I was really looking forward to reading this book after reading the first of the series and I gotta say I definitely wasn't disappointed ... There were a couple of things about Tayla that I didn't really like but they weren't huge issues.... I found Tayla being half angel herself an interesting aspect to the book... it an definitely stand on it's own but I suggest reading book one just to catch up.... I absolutely love the world Rosalie has created and can only imagine if this world

as the battle continue to save mankind, this one Fallen Angel trying to get his one true mate to accept him as her mate.

Tayla, as one of the few nephilim alive, has scars of her own, regarding to a close relationship, a fear of beinf abandoned by her loved ones. this thing about her made me really impatience, really...

As Ethan trying his damnest hard, Tayla finally realise her true feeling when she felt the lost of him.

Like the previous book, this one had a quick story, more in romance covered,

Loved this book. It was far too short though. Ethan is one hot Angel and Tayla? well she annoyed me a little but, she finally came around! I would have loved a longer story with them, their sex scenes were hot and passionate and it was just getting good when the book ended. Still definitely worth the read!

I like the story and everything in it but for me I feel like they are rushing into everything and if the Author just paid a little more attention and added a little bit more between their first contact and the deed itself, the books would be a 5 star.

This was a little better than book 1.. our sweet and sexy angel had to work a little more to get the girl.... just a little. Miss Lario has something here... the storyline is great but I do believe this could have been a 4-5 star if featured in a full length novel.
