This will definitely be one of those books I read on release date. Just check out the description below – chaos (yes), unhappily-ever-after (yes, yes), undeniable connection + wings (yes, yes, yes).

Plus, new author, new series, new characters. Add to that a deadly touch and this sounds like one killer read. Oh, and the cover for this is amazingly cool. I cannot wait for 2-22-11.

I did not discover this book or author from my participation in the 2011 DAC. Right around the time I started this blog back in November I was wandering around on Goodreads just looking for books to add to my TBR list and this one popped up. It fit in perfectly with my immortal/angel kick. Sadly it wasn’t yet released, but I’ve been stalking this on Amazon until it was available for pre-order for my Kindle.

Goodreads description:

Eden didn’t expect Az.

Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.


So long happily-ever-after.

Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.

She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else’s game. Her heart is her own.

And that’s only the beginning of the end
