From the Author

FALLEN ANGEL was a great joy and a great challenge to write-the story had been in my head for ten years! Funny how you imagine a book one way, then your characters can take it in a completely different direction once you begin to write.  That's what happened here.  The story became much more romantic than I'd expected, which I rather liked. I hope you like it, too.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
My Review:

This book was incredibly different...very psychological and intense. I was never sure where the story was going, or as the reader, even where I wanted it to go. Both the main characters Declan and Angel are dealing with some heavy mental issues, which makes the book sometimes difficult to enjoy. The book definitely kept my attention, but I'm not sure how much of that was simply because of the bizarre circumstances....it was hard to look away...kind of like watching a car wreck.

Both Angel and Declan are characters with histories that are a bit of a mystery.

For Declan, he has horrible anger issues with his father, based back to circumstances surrounding his mother's death. That story slowly comes out throughout the book as does the tragedy of his love for Abby. He and his father do not have a good relationship, but he's putting that aside because his father is helping him trace Angel's origins. It's also his father's girlfriend who is Angel's therapist. They are both helping Angel, which makes it hard for him to hold onto his anger.

Angel is a complete mystery. She literally falls at Declan's feet off the edge of a cliff, beaten and almost dead. But he finds himself entranced with her and completely protective of her. She's an interesting character. There are no gray areas for her...only black and white. It seems like her life would have made it harder for her to be happy, but she simply accepts that her life has been what it is and accepts it completely.

Like I said, this was an interesting book. There are a LOT of psychological elements to it. Angel has had this horrible torturous life, but she's a happy giving person. Declan has had a few bad things happen and has let that skew his attitude towards everything.

I was asked to review this book by my girl Dawn (of daydrmzzz.blogspot.com/ ) and of course I said yes <g> I hadn't read Eden before but I'd met her at the Romantic Times Book Convention as she's a darling. I am thrilled to get my hands on books before they hit the shelves! I read Fallen Angel last night- in one sitting. This book is not one I would have picked up on my own... I mostly read paranormal romance and urban fantasy... I haven't read contemporary romance very much lately, let alone contemporary erotic romance books :p I would have missed out on a beautiful story.

So, first off, the cover is very beautiful, but not very evocative of the story. To me the cover looks like a Fiction Romance (the kind with a sad ending) or maybe a chick lit. It does not say, extremely HOT, steamy, erotic, contemporary romance with heart and angst and a mystery that keeps you wondering for more than half the book. <g> Also, I was given a heads up by Dawn, and in case you missed it because of the cover and the title Fallen Angel, this is NOT a paranormal, at all. I think if you know what genre of story you are getting that helps a lot. :)

I enjoyed this book. The writing is very sensuous and lyrical. The heroine, Angel, is near death when we meet her. She lands at Declan's feet! Poor Declan! He's had so much trauma and loss in his life that he has closed himself off and having this beautiful, damaged woman fall in front of him makes him determined to save her. Angel has a murky past and is extremely innocent of the world. She doesn't remember seeing a man before Declan. She compares him to the guys she sees in the hospital and still thinks he's the most attractive male! <g> As the story progresses you discover how much she's been through and want to protect her yourself.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Asmodeus, the demon of all things carnal, has trained Angel in the art of seduction since she was a young woman. She was trained to please men in all ways. She developed a lover's relationship- but only in her dreams, where they can not touch. Asmodeus trained Angel the best he could, but when she failed to be accepted as The Gift to Satan, she was tossed off the cliffs and left for dead.

Declan is walking along the beach when he finds this ethereal, stunningly beautiful woman left broken and battered on the sand. He knows nothing of her or where she came from only that she is laying unconscious and naked on the beach. Her body is covered in blood and tribal tattoos. Immediately, Declan calls an ambulance to rescue her. He instantly feels compelled to protect her so he follows her to the hospital.

Once Angel awakens in the hospital, she tells Declan she has no name and she has no recollection before the age of five. The only people she remembers are Asmodeus and The Grandmother. She is in a strange place and time- she knows nothing of where she's at. The hospital...the people...everything is abnormal to her. So Declan decides to help her out. He names her Angel. His Angel? He then takes her home where he can teach her what she needs to know in order to survive in the real world.

Just when you think you know what's going to happen, think again. There were some turn of events I didn't see coming which left me in suspense most of the time. This is a completely different book then what I thought it would be. I originally thought it was a paranormal romance, but it's not. This is a story about love, family and the reconciliation of the past to be content with our future.
