I had a busy reading week. I loved Kat Latham's Playing It Close (book 2 in her London Legends rugby series). I also enjoyed Nora Roberts' The Collector (more for the romance than the suspense plot) and Jaci Burton's Hope Ignites. Those were the top 3 anyway. Plan to continue my Psy/Changeling reread next with Whisper of Sin.

This week I read the lovely Mrs Drew Plays Her Hand by Carla Kelly. I did a KA reread Law Man. Um, tried to start Hard Time by Cara McKenna but I'm having a bit of anxiety reading it. I know why it's happening, I am surprised it is, hopefully I can get back to it. Just finished Unfixable by Tessa Bailey which I did enjoy but not as much as her first book of the series. Next up will be Sarah Mayberrys Almost a Bride. Then I should really start working my way through one of the many box sets I compulsively buy :-)

Try the Samaria books by Sharon Shinn. First book is ARCHANGEL. They're very different from mine but fantastic. Let me know if you enjoy if you decide to try the books out. :-)

Another series you could try is Kristen Callihan's Darkest London series. It's paranormal steampunk historical romance, and it's completely unique and amazing. And there are fallen angels! Although you don't find out about them till the third or fourth book.

Not a whole lot of time to read this week but I did get a snippet of Felicity Heaton's Tempted by a Rogue Prince, Eternal Mates # 3, up on her website now and I can't wait til July/Aug when it releases!

I too love angel books:) The Guild Hunter series is by far the best I've read in this style. The world Nalini created is so varied and colorful with many interesting characters. Thats hard to match!

However I do love Heather Killough-Walden's Lost Angel series:
Book 1 Avenger's Angel (Archangel Uriel)
Book 2 Messengers Angel (Gabriel's story)
Book 3 Death's Angel (Archangel Azrael)
Four Archangel brothers have been on Earth for over 2000 years searching for their eternal mates "Archesses". She has yet to write Michael's story. I hope it comes soon! Also features Samael a dark fallen angel who will stop at nothing to make sure the four Archangels do not find their true loves. Samael will get a book too so I'm told.

Her Angel series by Felicity Heaton:
1. Her Dark Angel
2. Her Fallen Angel
3. Her Warrior Angel
(The above are novellas sold seperately as Ebooks or all three come together as a paperback. I have to say the first story was a little lacking, loved the characters but no depth to story, however as this series gets so much better! But as this is the first story its best to read it as these people become major players later on)

Book 4 Her Guardian Angel
Book 5 Her Demonic Angel
Book 6 Her Wicked Angel
LOVED THE LAST TWO!

Also check out Larissa Ione's Demonica series demons and angels a plenty!

Sorry I've chatted on a bit lol!

Happy Easter everyone!

I reread Angel's Blood - love it still! I have also recently enjoyed 'The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry' by Gabrielle Zevin - a great read :)
I should be writing not reading (I am writing my Master's thesis) - but I have a huge number of books on my 'to read' list after looking at the other posts made here!
