As she watched, wary, he hooked one ankle over a knee, and began to tap a heavy white envelope bordered with gilt against the top of his boot. I really appreciated that Elena wasn't automatically able to use her wings and fly perfectly. I'm curious where Nalini goes with Raphael becoming more mortal. And, Elena's memories of her family's devastation resurface throughout the story, sometimes at the most inopportune moments. This book picks up shortly after the battle between Raphael and Uram.

Elena and Raphael's romance was an important aspect of Archangel's Kiss though it did feel like it got shoved to the background at times. I was nervous about reading it though. At that moment, though he'd said he'd never hurt her, she wasn't so sure. There's something important in there she's supposed to discover. There are so many scenes involving their flight and they are just gorgeously written. It makes me feel guilty not to give it five stars, but something in me can't be satisfied enough to give it that highest rating. This would be my luck! I also felt like the story moved a bit slowly and the case in this book seemed a little…less than when compared to the of other books.
So well-written, well-developed, a shade macabre, very sensual, and completely swoon-worthy. He is a shadow, but thats what he is supposed to be as a spy. I wish it was out already. I re-listened to every book in the series that I had read. The ones that are supposed to be the messengers and enforcers of G-D's will??? However, if you like your stories very dark and sensual, you've come to the right place. That is how long it has taking me to finish this book. Her lover, New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of angelic rulers, vampiric servants, and the woman thrust into their darkly seductive world.
Agency: I'm represented by Nephele Tempest of The Knight Agency. The way she kissed his palm while they are making love. I wish the library would release the dang audio copy! However, in spite of the turbulent fury of her anger, she wiped off her face and kept her mouth shut. Just like DrkCherry, Bluebell is also my favorite of the Seven :: cikag said. Having someone to hold me when I'm tired. Personal email to me: nalinisinghwrites gmail. I mean, there's a bunch of hot angels and vampires running around, this should be silly, right? A bunch of god and goddess with a ton of power no real purpose.
Her books satisfy my hunger for trashy romance and paranormal knife-wielding heroines. She's used to being the strongest person and now has to deal with being Ever since I read the previous novel, Angels' Blood, I have been waiting impatiently for this book to come out. They engage in a battle of wits and an almost disturbing sexual dance as she hunted for this killer while Raphael hunted her at the same time. I was glad to find out more about her past and the events that lead her to become a Guild Hunter and I loved seeing her slowly learn to trust Raphael and start to open up to him. A high recommendation on this novel. Still overall the world, characters and story are interesting enough that even though I liked the first one a little more I see good things for this series.
I'm getting the impression that there is something fundamentally wrong with angels as a whole. We got acquainted with Raphael in last book, when he hired our hunter Elena to catch a maddened Archangel, who had devolved into insanity and blood lust. There were some things that I found to be repetitive. She doesn't know me from Adam. Heres wishing there is more to come! These archangels have so much power and are so old, plus living in violence, that a true relationship is a treasured rarity. But she refused to surrender to that, to let him be consumed by the violence of his own strength. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.
I think the power has gone to their heads and they may have lost a few brain cells. As she watched, wary, he hooked one ankle over a knee, and began to tap a heavy white envelope bordered with gilt against the top of his boot. Will he think it's Marguerite as an angel, since she wanted to could fly? He gives off a different feeling than the rest of the angels so far. I don't know, I guess I want more. He held her close, his immortal with a mortal heart. Another winner from the Romance Package and a great opportunity to visit with my favourite hunter, angels, vampires and archangels.
As she works to regain her strength, Elena must also adjust to her new circumstances, including her new body form, relationship with Raphael and a host of new enemies. Glaring at him, she slumped back against the pillows, her wings spread out on the sheets in a slow sweep of midnight shading to indigo and darkest blue before falling into dawn and finally, a brilliant white-gold. I'm not complaining, really I'm not. But I'll hold you up. I'm pretty sure some of my neighbors think I'm a lunatic after suddenly walking away from my lawn-mower to pace and rant - only about 30 seconds so no men in white coats were involved.
It just amazes me that Nalini can write so special books. It had some potential, but there was something about it that was off for me. This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel. And she must learn quickly. The eldest of the archangels has taken a deadly interest in Elena, and is throwing a ball in her honor at the Forbidden City in Beijing. She deftly weaves multiple storylines together, builds interest in supporting characters, and gives yet more depth to Raphael and Elena. But Elena has never done well with authority.
