Marcus stretched his left arm out above his head on the pillows of his double bed, buried the fingers of his right hand into his overlong black hair and stared into the inky dark of his bedroom. The open window to his left allowed pale light to filter in from the street far below but it barely cut through the gloom and it wasn't the reason he had lifted the sash around midnight.
Marcus couldn't take his eyes off her or believe what he was seeing. It seemed his fellow warriors couldn't either because Einar was suddenly beside him with a sword in his hand. Marcus rose to his feet and focused with great effort. It was slow to come and the deep pain it caused him to use so much energy brought him close to passing out but his blue armour gradually materialised. It covered his chest and back, encased his forearms and shins, and a sense of calm washed through him as he felt the weight of his weapons at his waist.
Amelia didn't move.
Her Guardian Angel, the fourth installment to Felicity Heaton's Her Angel series, is nothing short of a fabulous must-read paranormal romance that has it all. Ms. Heaton has a tendency to write stories that place you within the lives and adventures of her characters. Marcus and Amelia's story is as gut wrenching as it is romantic and there is no leaving the story until you have reached the last two words--The End. From chapter one the mystery intertwined around Amelia and Marcus propelled me on to reading just-one-more page. I often found myself losing track of time because of this. Not long into the story we find ourselves in danger from not only the dark Hell's Angels but also Heaven's. Which is an odd and welcomed twist to what so many author's have already written. I liked being surprised and not knowing whom to trust. Right along side Marcus and Amelia I was just as stunned as they were at how things developed with each flip of the page. And if one sexy Guardian Angel from Heaven determined to get to the bottom of this mystery behind who and what Amelia really is isn't enough for you,(I don't blame you) then be prepared to meet up with all the other angels from the three previous installments to the Her Angel Series. Apollyon, Lukas, and Einar are all present when it all hits the fan. Then the stakes rise even further as blood is spilled.
Just as I thought the ending was in sight the level of danger and adventure is turned up yet another notch when the Angel of Death, Apollyon must take Marcus and the others into Hell itself where the voice of the Devil will taunt even the strongest of Angels to turn sides. The fear and excitement for what happens to Marcus and Amelia was more than a wave of ups and downs. Their story is a riveting tidal wave of hope, despair, love, betrayal, and finally strength of greater proportions that I could have even imagined. It is a bit surprising to read a story of Heaven and Hell not being either wholly innocent or completely dark and evil The twists and turns continue to the every end, not leaving one page with a dull moment. Blood is shed and wills are bent against desires. You do not know who will die or who will be the victor. The author works her magic allowing us to follow along side the Guardian and his heroine, giving us deep insight to their feelings, their past, and their tentative future. There is no moment left unexposed, no experience pushed to the wayside. Her Guardian Angel is a love story that takes Angels, Demons, and mortals to the next level, pushing you as the reader to possibly experience these beings in a different light that is not always good and not always bad. I lost much sleep due to this story and every moment was worth it. You definitely know the story is good when the characters follow you into your dreams!
Now, as for the next book in the series, which there is a strong hint of one to come, I wonder if the author is thinking of Veiron, a Hell's Angel, as the next hero. If so, he'll be a wild card for sure!
There is one thing that I must say about Felicity Heaton's writing style and that is her constant ability to give the reader such great insight into her characters thoughts. She does it is such a way that it blends and melds into their actions allowing us to see how each feeling or emotion causes an outwards reaction of effect much like a ripple in a pool of water. She also allows the setting to play a large part in the story giving it a sense of balance between the characters and the surrounding going-ons.
Amelia starts out in the story as a normal human woman with a very bad streak of finding the not-so-good-guys for dating material. She comes across as a bit quirky at times yet very sexy. She is just a woman trying to find happiness after living with a very painful past. During the 'normal' moments of her life that we see when the story first begins she shows determination even though dealing with so much heavy baggage. I liked that in her. As the story progressed and the mysterious past begins to reveal itself to her, she is surprisingly calm and shows an admirable strength. She takes it in stride as Hell's Angels attack her and her 'neighbor' out of the blue. And when she finally learns she is more than just human (no spoilers) and her handsome protector is her Guardian Angel sent to her from heaven, she shows the power behind the emotion of love. Nothing proves this more than when her memories are stripped from her and the only thing guiding her is that same inner strength and her heart. Marcus, a Guardian Angel of Heaven, carries even more weight to deal with than Amelia. As a loyal subject of Heaven he does his duty with an unwavering faith. He is also strong and shows it by doing anything it takes to protect his charge from what he believes is the enemy even if it comes in the form of a friend. When things begin to unravel and it becomes hard to see whether Heaven or Hell is the enemy, he shows the same determination that Amelia possessed, proving to me that they were definitely a good match. As the twists and turns roll into an unstoppable force of love and adventure, these two characters and their story will become as dear to your heart as they have to mine.
A story with a dark and lethal mystery laced with betrayal, of Heaven and of Hell. Her Guardian Angel is a full throttle, action packed love story that you will not be able to put down! Felicity Heaton, I hope you are working on the next installment because I am addicted to this series!
A simple mission becomes a fight for survival in this fantastic instalment in the Her Angel series.
A guardian angel dedicated to his duty, Marcus will do whatever Heaven asks of him, but even his loyalty has its limits. When his superior orders him to gain Amelia’s trust through seduction, Marcus starts to question his mission and his feelings for the beautiful woman he has watched over since her birth.
Amelia has gone from one bad relationship to another, so when a gorgeous guy moves in next door looking like Mr Right, she hopes he doesn’t turn out to be another black knight in disguise. But there’s more to Marcus than meets the eye, and when he rescues her from three demonic men, Amelia is thrust into his nightmarish world—a world where God and the Devil exist, and only one angel can save her from death—Marcus, the angel she’s falling in love with.
On the run from demonic angels and the Devil himself, aided by Marcus’s angel friends and their amazing women, fighting for survival against the odds, Marcus and Amelia discover a love that will last forever.
A love so strong it will shake Heaven and Hell.
