Not always a Y.A. choice, but I am still Y.A. at heart! I've been noticing more and more that I am drawn to a mixture of genre's specifically adult paranormal romance, and all around Y.A. So this week I've decided to share a part of my adult paranormal romance addiction I seem to be accumulating on a separate book shelf at home and on Goodreads.com!
Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark, #1) by Gena Showalter
Expected Publication: June 26, 2012
From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld comes a dark, seductive new series featuring angels poised at the brink of destruction…
Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed too dangerous, too ruthless, and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred . . . until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he’s never before known.
Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation—or her ultimate damnation?
Thoughts: Well I think I have finally found it! A paranormal steamy romance based around angels! Now, I would have settled for any type of angel, but lets be real, darker angels are just more fun ;) hehe. ANYWAY! What first really drew me into the book was NOT the cover, but obviously it was a bonus, it was actually the title of the book. I was not expecting a seductive angel romance to be between the pages but, some demonic playboy of sorts. Although that being said, I am pleasantly surprised and please to find that this time around we are seeing things from a different side of the spectrum though, I am sure the heat will still be as intense as ever. The synopsis gives us just enough to really get hooked and want to know more about each character; why is Zacharel deemed too dangerous? (he is an angel after all); why does the King of demons want Annabelle as his own? these types of questions really pulled me in and fascinated me as I thought about it more. I have actually become obsessed and will confess I am going to pounce on this book once its published come June! And of course to add the cherry on top... the cover *swoon*! - can we say angels should wear low cut jeans more often!! Just look at that ... EVERYTHING! After getting past the initial "wow" of the angel, I did happen to notice the girl and thought it was very creative how his wings, basically his body is hiding her; almost protecting her, from himself. Very ingenius and a great tie in to the synopsis about Zacharel. June can't come fast enough for me! Waiting on Wednesday just got a little more steamy in my opinion! (hehe)
