I have to preface this post with “How the hell does she do it????” I just finished reading the latest in the Guild Hunter series, Archangels Enigma. Here’s what it’s about before I start the eulogizing.
Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former Archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required—those more common to predatory animals than to man.
Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets, is fascinated by his nature—at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the Sleeping archangel before it’s too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows…and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare…
What can I say, other than WOW! I read a lot, and like most of us, I have a list of favorite authors. In fact, the KACs were having a conversation recently about some of our favorite authors who were maybe losing steam a bit, not delivering the sort of quality work we were used to. They’re human, after all, and to keep churning out quality books is tough. But Nalini Singh NEVER disappoints. Each book is a finely crafted, gripping, raw, beautiful read from start to finish. I love her Psi-Changeling series, but the Guild Hunter series might just be my favorite. I’ve never forgotten the meeting of Elena and Raphael in Angel’s Blood. Talk about hot and super-charged!!!! Archangel’s Enigma had me scouring her backlist again, because I can’t get enough Nalini. Super-recommend this one!!!
And speaking of authors who never disappoint, next on my list is the new release by Christie Ridgway. This is sitting on my iPad as we ‘speak’ just waiting to sweep me away.
CEO Walsh Hopkins relies on his admin Honey Brooks as his “second brain.” He trusts the efficient young woman with everything—from his company secrets to his social calendar. When a business conference at a beachside resort comes up, of course he assumes she’ll be by his side. But he’s taken aback when his dependable assistant balks at the chance to blend work and pleasure.
Honey Brooks has been crushing on her boss for years. No way does she want to torture herself further by spending time with him in a romantic surf-and-sand setting. But he overrules her objections and under the tropical sun their platonic boss-secretary relationship takes a drastic turn. They promise each other that upon the return home their relationship will return to normal too… But some promises are impossible to keep
