The Fallen Angel Trilogy by Kim Loraine

Waking the Watcher
Denying the Watcher
Releasing the Watcher

This serieswas a fun paranormal and erotica trilogy. Each book focuses on a different couple but the
background story on the first two books gets resolved in book 3, and as such, the series should
not be read out of order. The background story is Sariel’s, an angel who fell from heaven when
he chose to stay on earth with the woman he fell in love with instead of being a ‘watcher’ for
God. His job was to watch, not to interact and interfere. When he fell, so did hundreds of others
hoping to find the same kind of love that he did. Some did, some are now under the influence of
Lucifer. Sariel’s love died not long after he fell -during the flood- and he has spent thousands of
years dormant with no body of his own inside the mind of others.
On book one he wakes up. He believes that the vampire whose body he is inhabiting has found
the reincarnation of his mate. But is she his mate, or is she the vampire’s mate and he is just
confusing the vampire’s feelings with his own after being dormant for so long?
SPOILERS AHEAD
On book two he is inhabiting the body of Galen’s (vampire on book one) best friend, Devin.
Devin wants a chance to get his soul back and not end up in hell when he finally dies. They
have a deal: Devin gets 5 more years on earth doing whatever he wants without the interference
of the fallen angel in his head, and when the 5 years are up, he gives control to Sariel. During
that time both fallen angel and vampire must fight with the army of God to eradicate or redeem
the other fallen angels.
Needless to say things don’t go according to plan. Devin finds his mate. But so does Sariel.
And in book 3, we finally get Sariel’s story!
We get glimpses into who he was and the time he fell intertwined with the present. The
reincarnation of his mate is not just in love with another man, she is engaged to be married.
Angel Gabriel warns him to leave them alone, to not risk her and his soul, but can he?
Overall I really liked this series. I wasn’t sure to start, it was a little odd. But after a while, that is
what I liked about it the most. It was different from any other vampire book I’ve read in the past.
The first few pages in book 1 can be a struggle. The way Gallen talks about sex and his male
parts is off putting, but if you stick with it you soon understand why. Vampires can’t have sex.
Hundreds of years stuck. That changes if you have an awake watcher in you, which happens
when Gallen meets his mate. The chemistry between them was on point and a fun read. A
definite 4 stars. Book 2 was 3 stars for me. Although I liked all the characters there was a lot of
sex for the sake of it with no chemistry to speak of. I don’t like that, not even in erotica. And the
last book was no doubt my favorite. We get to know Sariel pretty well in the first two books and it
is hard not to feel for him.
I would give the series a 4 stars overall :)

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
