Who's Saving Who?

Evangeline is a young woman on the edge. She thinks she's crazy due to her visions of dead people, like her father and ex-boyfriend, and she's mired in depression. When she's about to jump off a bridge to commit suicide, a priest materializes to talk her down.

Remi isn't your average priest. For one, he's hawt. Smokin' hot. Literally--he smokes throughout the novel. He's also an angel, unbeknownst to Evangeline. God sent him to save her soul. Too bad she's so darn charming that h
“Just for tonight, let's pretend I'm not a priest and you're not crazy. We're just two normal human beings having a good time. Just a man and a woman at a rip-off carnival, living in the moment.”

***** 6 Star Review ****
Wow! Nancee Cain has made an outstanding debut with Saving Evangeline ! This book has everything that readers look for in a book. This book celebrates the human spirit. It celebrates the gift of life, the gift of choice, and the beauty of love in all forms. It is also loaded with humor and witty dialogue. I laughed my butt off and cried my heart out. I swooned with the passion and felt warm & fuzzy with each hug. This book touched me in so many ways. When a book does

I usually don't read paranormal romances, but in this case I was intrigued by the author's premise. An angel sent to earth for disciplinary reasons to save a suicidal heroine who has the sight? Remiel's got to show Evangeline that she has every reason to live and not leave this world despite her crazy behavior and self-destructive tendencies. Meanwhile, Remiel's not your typical angel and the Big Boss has made him a priest. So when sparks fly between the two of these flawed individuals, it's ver ...more

This is a very original story. I would not recommend it to anyone who has a strong Christian faith. I like the snarky comments, but I felt like it was insta-love. I wasn't sure how they had a connection so quickly like that. I also would have liked a more thorough ending.... Like what happened....

But the story was cute, and I liked the characters. I give it a 4 for originality. ♡

I really disliked how this was written because I was unsure at times who was speaking... but maybe that's me.

Sweet, sexy and sassy. Not your typical romance, which is what I loved about it! Remi is a sexy loveable hero unlike any I've ever seen in a romance. I enjoyed the fun banter and the tender scenes. Beautiful HEA ending. ...more

I found Saving Evangeline on Amazon after clicking another book and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I was immediately drawn to its cover and I LOVE stories about angels. But if you don’t read paranormal-kind of books you will still like it too. Nancee Cain’s writing style and brilliantly fresh sense of humor will DEFINITELY get to you!

Saving Evangeline is a BEAUTIFUL story! I wouldn’t really call it paranormal, but then how would we cal

This review has been a long, long time coming. I read this back in June but because of other commitments and taking a step back from writing for the summer, I haven't been blogging much. My apologies to Naccee Cain for the long delay in sharing my love of this stand out debut novel.

Who over a certain age doesn't remember the allure and drama of The Thorn Birds, both the mini series and the book, and the captivating intrigue of the priest torn between his love of God and his love of a woman?

Strange as it may be I want to start at the end. I loved the epilogue of this book. A lot of books will leave you hanging and to imagine what you think the ending or HEA will be in the book. Not this one. Nancee Cain gives you the most amazing ending.

Evangeline is a very tortured soul.

Saving Evangeline was recommended by a friend, knowing it wasn't a book I'd normally choose to read. It's written in first person, present time - not my favorite style. And it's a paranormal romance. I can't remember the last time I read a romance, paranormal or not. I passed on 50 Shades and have many books on my Kindle I can't make myself finish. However, I have to say Saving Evangeline drew me in from the beginning.

Evangeline is at her roads end, when her guardian angel steps in. Can he help her find her way again, and without losing himself to her? Will Evangeline believe him or just see him as a figment of her imagination?
Angels, emotions and fluffy smut in a great combo.
The epilogue had me in tears. Happy ones =) .

A rogue angel bored with eternity is sent to earth to save a suicidal girl. Not a problem, right? Wrong. He has to do it disguised as a priest. Throw in a road trip from hell and you have a paranormal, sexy twist of It's a Wonderful Life! ...more

Absolutely Love it!

I really loved this story, saying that I adore Angels has a lot to do with it, but witty, funny, sarcastic gorgeous angels just tops the cake! I have to be honest I did not know what to expect from this book, I saw it on another Authors website to read and dove into it. I also don't read much paranormal books other then angels.

This book is mostly about a women who has lost the will to live, caused by the unfortunate mishaps in her life and feels responsible for them all, and
A little birdie told me...
I give this three-and-a-half stars. Why? Much belief needed to be suspended reading this novel. I like the thought of heavenly creatures showing human characteristics and suffering the same temptations as earthly creatures. I also like the thought of God embracing technology and using it to direct angels on missions. All of that really wasn't what was unbelievable.

It was the insta-love. I'm not an insta-love hater, but this one didn't make much sense. I didn't quite get their connection... like

Oh my god! I was blessed enough to receive a copy of this book as an ARC and I gotta say it was so beautiful.

Evangeline or crazy girl as she is mostly called, thinks she is crazy and want to die. She is attempting to kill herself when Remi, a dashing young priest stops her. Remi is in a mission to help Evie realise that life is worth living.

Remi is no ordinary priest though, he is actually an angel sent from heaven to help Evie on the right path.

These two have an amazing journey together and

The emotion in this story is captivating. What starts as an impossible attraction grows into much more, and I fully felt the ache of yearning and restraint between these two engaging characters. The writing itself is beautiful. The story moves along at a nice pace - with plenty of genuinely funny moments to break up the angst - but the author effectively weaves in introspective moments to bring the reader more deeply into both Remy and Evangeline's minds.

When bad boy Angel, Remiel, complains to the 'Boss' that he's bored in Heaven, he finds himself tossed down to earth. He has to pose as a priest to save twenty-one year old Evangeline, who suffers from what she thinks are mental illnesses and decides to commit suicide. The moment he lures her away from the bridge, a battle of the wills began. And they start to fall in love. This story is very well written. It's witty, funny and very sexy.

Evie is hell bent on ending her life. Remi is heaven sent to save her.

Disguised as a priest, rouge angel Remi has to figure out a way to show Evangeline her life is worth living. She's been blessed, or cursed, with a special sense for people. That mixed with idea that she was somehow responsible for her boyfriends death, she has convinced herself she's crazy.

The story unfolds beautifully and keeps me wanting more yet doesn't just jump into bed. I love a good story that builds the chemistry and

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this book before it came out. I loved this book from beginning to end. The main characters Remi and Evie are so well written it’s hard not to love them. Evie is damaged by love and loss; Plagued by things that could never be. Remi is sent to teach her how to live again. By doing so he teaches her to “grab life by the balls.”

Honestly I never wanted the book to end. I couldn’t get enough of Remi and Evie’s story. This is the ultimate story of forbidden

This Romantic Paranormal with some comic relief included kept me entertained & interested from the very first page. A woman determined to end her life. A rogue angel unable to reveal his true identity. A trip cross-country that could save or damn both. This first story from Nancee Cain tells the tale of a damaged woman & the angel who is tasked with saving her.

It's irreverent and edgy with a harty side of snark.
Cain's main characters are a far cry from perfect, which makes them perfect for each other. A rollercoaster roadtrip drags her hero & heroine through hell, before landing them in heaven--keeping her readers engaged and along for the ride. It's the ultimate, albeit least expected, happy-ever-after you'll pick up this summer.

Nancee Cain has created something beautiful with her first book. Remi and Evangeline are very well developed characters. You care what happens to them and so you stay up late to finish the book until you find out. I am currently re-reading it because I enjoyed it so much the first time!
