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…

I can't thank Stacy enough for her coming on the blog today and share her thoughts on Valentines Day...

Hooray, Hooray for Valentine’s Day!

Before we begin, I’d like to thank My Reading Obsession for allowing me to chat about women, men, remembering to appreciate the ones you love, and how it all makes sense in my latest release, SAVAGE ANGEL!
Let’s face it. There’s a BIG difference between men and women when it comes to being romantic. It’s not uncommon for a woman to tuck a sweet little note into the pocket of her snuggle-bunny to be found later. She might also make his favorite noms while he’s parked firmly in front of the TV watching a game he’s been looking forward to all week. Women are naturals when it comes to expressing love and affection.

Guys, though…not so much. Heh.
Bless their hearts, they’re just not wired that way, and normally we women get that. We might eye-roll over it, but we get it. Every now and again, though, it gets on our nerves and makes us feel unappreciated. While we might be hard-wired to build those emotional bonds, guys usually have to be reminded to do the same.
That’s where Valentine’s Day comes to the rescue!

February 14th is like man-magic. It’s the one day out of the year when a woman receives the overt display of love and affection she so richly deserves. Also, I have to say it was a stroke of genius to put this holiday on a SET DATE. That way no man (who has aspirations of keeping his Other Half happy) can claim he didn’t know about it/it wasn’t like this last year/no one told him it was coming up. What’s more, if you work this set date REALLY well, the guy will spend days, or even weeks thinking about what huge romantic thing he needs to do to show his significant others how much he loves and appreciate them. And that’s not a bad thing. If he’s thinking about that, it means he’s thinking about YOU.

For instance, take the hero in SAVAGE ANGEL. While this story takes place in mid-summer and isn’t anywhere near Valentine’s Day, Gideon Mandeville needs to figure out how to woo Sara after he messes up with her in a big way. Flowers and candy won’t cut it. When Sara nearly loses her life while tracking down a serial killer that may or may not be demonically tainted, it’s going to take a lot to gain her attention, and her trust. The one thing guaranteed to work? Make her the center of his attention, staying at her side when she’s at her weakest, and accepting her without question when she reveals she’s part of the Nephilim—human-angel hybrids. Because more than anything, trust and acceptance trump flowers and candy any day.
Question: What’s the most romantic thing your significant other has done for you?

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 heard. “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.”

  1. He is not very romantic so I guess bringing me flowers is a big deal.
