Preferably not.

The author attempts a snarky female heroine, but fails to pull it off convincingly.

The storyline is derivative of others – see angel blood – saviour of the universe and so on…

Had your fill of Vampires and werewolves? Prefer your immortal warriors with a bit more legend?

Hell has literally come to Earth for one mortal and what’s worse, she is expected to leave behind all hope for a family of her own to stand in defense of humanity against the darkest forces of Hell. But when Satan offers her the normal life she covets, Joey must decide if the price of mankind’s salvation is worth her own damnation.
Strong-willed Joey Benton is the half-mortal child of an angel with heavenly powers. She has no knowledge of her heritage or the power running through her veins until she meets a handsome stranger who forces her to question her life and the world around her. And she quickly becomes a key player in a battle that will define a victory for Heaven or Hell.
Ursus, a sexy Archangel, doesn’t want the responsibility of another charge, especially when Joey is so defiant. Protecting her from Hell might very well be the biggest challenge of his immortal life. But when his feelings for Joey get in the way of his duty, it’s a challenge he refuses to lose.

Interview with the Author

Q – So, what makes the Deadly Sins series special?

A – When I set out to write Angel Unborn, I wanted to write the kind of books I like to read. My favorites are usually paranormal romance novels with not only strong heroes but strong heroines who can stand on their own. I enjoy a great fantasy or science fiction novel as well. Basically, anything with a kick-butt attitude and a touch of something different that grabs my attention.

The Deadly Sins books are a great mix of these genres. You’ll find the series focuses on angels and demons but also features psychics, ghosts, the mythical gods, and other supernatural favorites. Either I have commitment issues, or I like to keep things interesting! I’d like to think it’s the latter.

Overall, the Deadly Sins series is designed to keep you turning the pages – and I’ve made sure there’s never a dull moment.

Q – What order should I read the books in?

A – I’ve written the series so you can read the books in any order (except for All Wicked’s Eve—it should be read after Demon Undamned). If you do want to read them in order, I’d suggest the following sequence:

– Angel Unborn
– Angel Redeemed (accompanying novelette to Angel Unborn)
– Angel Unleashed
– Hexed (novella that ties into Angel Unleashed)
– Demon Undamned
– All Wicked’s Eve

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Deadly Sins series is a fast, fun, humorous ride that takes no prisoners! Ultimately, readers who enjoy strong heroes, snarky heroines, and lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series.

Feisty princess

These are the voyages of the spaceship Feisty Princess.

Archaeologist Vikki Jacobs finds herself battered, bruised and in unfortunate need of help. She's been double-crossed and left for dead on a spaceship set to self-destruct. Even with odds stacked against her, she's determined to kick the ass of the man responsible and retrieve what he stole.

Enter the polar opposite half-Duarr twins, Will and Xan. Childhood friends who offer their support—and Xan's spaceship the Feisty Princess—to help her achieve her goal. But they're no longer the boys she used to boss around when they were kids. They've grown up and bring baggage and hormones into the fray...

Join the reunited friends as they hunt down the bastard who double-crossed Vikki and kick his ass!

I used to love Science Fiction – in fact I still do, but so much I read is derivative of the Masters.  Where is the next Frank Herbert and Dune? Where is Arthur C Clarke?

This author is not there yet. Good try but not quite good enough for me to read book 2.

Paris again but more

Paris marshal Danni Metreaux has her hands full with criminals preying on a local Weeia merchant, a fresh trainee and the happy distraction of a new love interest. Her instincts tell her that a powerful Weeia has been forcing humans to commit a series of crimes, and wiping their victim’s memories, leaving them to human justice. Will Danni be able to discover who is behind the crimes and stop them without losing her own mind?

Danni is still in Paris and has a new trainee to help her but she suspects that a certain Weeia has been working with criminals and using mind power to influence humans.

She is helping a shopkeeper with his small issue about blackmail – protection money as the book starts but this proves to be just a very small problem in her life in Paris. It was a small world for the Weeia even if they lived in a large city. All knew, or knew of each other.  And thus they all knew who to call on when they had problems. And that was Danni.

As the originality of the story had been explored in book one, this book relies more on the situation and its characters and this falls a little flat as it becomes just another detective novel. Still quite well written but…

Mandy Thorne thinks she’s testing the new Intergalactic Dating Agency’s site when she pushes the initiate match button. The moment she does though, she discovers she’s requested a super-hot alien be delivered to her doorstep the very next day. While Mandy’s excited about the sexy man she’s about to get, the strings attached are a different story.
Caiden TS-461 lands on Earth before he’s been properly trained for the culture, but as soon as he meets his human mate he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her heart. When he breaks a rule to make Mandy happy, the pair end up back on planet Eroscia to face punishment for their crime, and the sentence could make Mandy resent him forever.

So an Intergalatic Dating Agency – oh well, I’m sure we might have one in the future some time and it’s worth a quick speculate now as to who might arrive.

So here we have a rather silly short story with a sexy alien coming from a dying planet which has arrived in our solar system – yes please keep your dismay in place as to what this would do to our planetary orbits.

For some reason their females have died out and our males were hit by a gender specific plague. So a match made in planetary orbits!

The Govts decide to try and match up the genders for marriage and children and initiate an online dating system, and the beta system is accidentally used and so Caiden arrives.
