SAVING HER ANGEL – On sale August 8, 2016
About the book –
Eleanor has loved her boss Cam from afar for years, but now he wants to retire and send her away. Tearing her heart out would have been kinder.
Archangel Camael must never fall for a woman. If he does, he’ll lose his angelic powers, and he will age like a human. Protecting humans from evil is paramount and has meant periodically reinventing his identity to avoid rousing suspicion. But as his desire grows for his secretary, Eleanor, duty feels more like a burden, because he can’t imagine starting a new life without her.
He can never fall in love.
A force of evil is wreaking havoc and Cam and his Archangel brothers scramble to determine and thwart the cause. The key lies in Eleanor’s tormenting memories, but if they push her too hard, she might snap. Cam must walk the delicate line between protecting Eleanor, appeasing his brothers, and saving the world.
Eleanor Tinley pushed her glasses higher on the bridge of her nose before snapping her purse shut with a huff. She dropped it onto her empty desk and looked around the nearly bare office. It was done. Four years of hard work and loyalty out the window on the whim of her suddenly flighty boss, and now she was unemployed.
Sure he had given her a ridiculously generous severance package. If she was careful— and she was always careful— she could live comfortably off her savings for at least a couple of years. He had seemed very concerned about making sure she had more than enough money to coast for a while. It had almost seemed like he was concerned about her, but she remained angry and hurt by the sudden dismissal. The problem was she didn’t want to be unemployed. She loved her job. She loved her office and her desk, and she love— no. She greatly admired her boss.
With a sigh of resignation, she dropped into her chair and leaned her elbows on the desk. Cam had been the perfect boss. Sure he had a few odd quirks, but who didn’t? And his family was a bit eccentric. But she probably should have known it wasn’t meant to last. She had first met him when they had run into each other at the grocery store…literally. And after twenty minutes of conversation he’d hired her on the spot.
Everything had been perfect until two weeks ago, when he’d announced he was retiring. A growl of exasperation escaped as she rolled her eyes. Who in the hell retired at thirty?
As if conjured from her thoughts, the sound of the front door opening reached her ears, and whistling wafted through the foyer. Her pulse sped up as Cam walked in, sorting through a stack of mail. The brown hair that matched his eyes was a little on the shaggy side and covered the tops of his ears. Light stubble graced his jaw and made him look a little dangerous. Annoyance filled her at how much she liked it.
“What are you doing here?” she asked.
Surprise lit his face as he stopped mid-step and looked up. “I should ask you the same question.”
Wanting to sigh in delight at the sight of his six-two frame in well-worn jeans that fit him like a glove and a t-shirt that might’ve been half a size too small, she fought the urge and frowned. For a marriage counselor who spent most of his days sitting, he kept his body in great shape just like his brothers. Instead, she let her annoyance fill her tone so he’d know he’d upset her.
“I told you I had to finish packing the office this morning.”
His attention shifted from her to the empty bookshelves and lighter spots on the walls where his diplomas had been. “Oh. Good.”
