VBT: Review & Giveaway - Savage Angel by. Stacy Gail



Savage Angel
by Stacy Gail
BLURB:

Book two in The Earth Angels
Feel nothing. Sara Savitch's personal mantra has been hard to live by ever since her torrid one-night stand with army doctor Gideon Mandeville. Descended from the Seraphim, angels known as heaven's soldiers, Sara may be an expert fighter, but she's an amateur when it comes to relationships.

Physically unharmed, but still battle-scarred, Gideon has returned to Dallas in the hopes of regaining his faith in humanity—and in himself. Instead he's walked into a nightmare. His father is on a serial killer's hit list, and has hired a personal bodyguard—the very woman who has haunted Gideon's dreams for a year.

As Sara works to build an impenetrable fortress around her client, she yearns to tear down the one around Gideon's heart. With his bitter rejection of warriors, will he ever be able to accept her true nature? Sara must find a way to trust Gideon with her secret as the killer closes in…





REVIEW

Savage Angel is the second book in Stacy Gail's Earth Angel Series.
I really enjoyed reading Savage Angel. I thought the author was creative in using the Nephilim legend. It has been done before, but not like this.

The books premise is intriguing. The main characters are  being hunted by heaven, and hell, all the while trying to protect humanity from evil.

The heroine Sara was a strong character, she is trying to do the right thing while fighting her own demons. She comes off kind of hard throughout the book, but you can see that she really cares about the people she has sworn to protect.

The hero Gideon is tortured from the things he has seen and done while in the military. I first thought that he was way harsh, but as you pull away his layers, you find the real Gideon. All he wants is to keep the people he love safe.

I also enjoyed the secondary characters in this story, they were real, and identifiable. 

All in all, Savage Angel was a excellent paranormal romance. There was enough action, and love to leave you wanting more. I look forward to the next book in this series.

4 1/2 STARS out of 5

EXCERPT:

“Let’s make this quick,” she announced without preamble, heading over to the desk and gesturing an invitation toward the chairs on the opposite side of it. “I have a meeting waiting for me, along with about a fifty other things that need to get done before noon. And in future, I’d appreciate it if you would call and make an appointment the next time you want a face-to-face.”

“An appointment? For me?” Refusing to even look at the chairs she’d indicated, Gideon kept his distance and stayed by the windows, his expression so remote he looked as unapproachable as the moon. “Do you insist all your lovers do that, or is it just me?”

She hoped her swift intake of breath was something only she Theard. “You’ve made it apparent we don’t have that kind of relationship and after yesterday, I’m forced to agree with you. You’re not my lover, or boyfriend, or even acquaintance. We’re strangers, and I have no problem keeping it that way.”

“Except for the small fact that strangers don’t usually have mind-blowing sex up against the garage wall, do they?”
Her fingers curled into her palms, and she wondered if her face looked as neon-red as it felt. “And here I was, thinking you’d forgotten about that.”

“Something that hot is hard to forget.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR



A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By the age of fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

    1. Ooh, any book is my favorite. :P Though right now I seem to be on an Urban Fiction and New Adult fiction kick. I pretty much go in spurts. (Yeah, I said spurts. :D)

      Thanks for asking, Hope, and I'm curious--what genres are you enjoying these days?
