Forgiving himself

This was a short cute side story. The story was good but wished there was more. It didn't seem quite finished.
Ren and Arial's story was about forgiveness. Arial is an angel of forgiveness and Ren has been her assignment for five years. He has made progress but he can't seem to forgive himself. She asks Raphael if she can see him in person and was denied, but she does it anyway.
I hope we find out what happens when Raphael finds out about her going against his ruling in one of the

Quick, but entertaining!, story

Ariel and Ren’s story was heartwarming to read. Ariel’s unwavering support and faith in Ren, as he overcame his own personal demons, was beautiful to read about. I just wish there was more to the epilogue; was Ariel punished? Where will they live? How was the reunion with Ren’s parents?

Book 17.5 of the Dark Warrior Alliance series a well written short Christmas story. A story of forgiveness for recovering drug user Ren/Renald and Arial an angel who has visited him nightly for the last five years. The story has suspense, drama, danger, twists, turns, demons, and romance. I enjoyed reading this story. I read this story through K.U. and am voluntarily reviewing.

A beautiful Christmas story of love and forgiveness which proves before you can seek forgiveness by other, you must first forgive yourself.

I loved it!

So my one question is did Raph punish Arial or did Kara tell the stuffy nose brute to mind his own business?
