Angels and Demons

The first book that comes to mind to me, when you say angels and demons, is The Bible. Several things have stuck with me from my Sunday school classes as a child, the story of Cain and Able is one of them. The infamous twins, the first murder and The Mark of Cain. I recently found this story in a romance novel.

"Bear the Mark of Cain," Able's words as he brands Evangeline Hollis as a Holy Warrior after she falls to the sin of lust with the wrong man. This comes after one of the hottest sex scenes I've read in a "romance" novel, and check this out, it's not with the hero of the novel. It's not particularly explicit, but it is intense because of who the hero is. Since then, I've read the rest of her series and now, I'm waiting for more.

The second book that comes to mind is very special to me. It was the first of what would become many novels I would critique for Barbara Elsborg and one of my personal favorites. The Power of Love is a heart-wrenching story about love and death. It does have a Happily Ever After, but the trip getting there will take you on a rollar coaster ride you won't soon forget. In this beautiful erotic tale, Poppy suffers the loss of her one true love, a cop named, Joe, who she refuses to let go.

Here's the blurb:  Joe is a lost soul.When Joe is killed in the line of duty, the result of a blunder by his girlfriend Poppy, he ends up stuck between worlds, not quite in heaven, not quite in hell. Heaven is Poppy lying in his arms, hearing the sound of his name on her lips as he makes love to her, again and again. Hell is the knowledge that to save Poppy, he must convince her to let him go. Poppy is a soul lost.Joe was Poppy’s heart, her soul, and since he died she’s lost it all, including her sanity. Everywhere she looks, he’s there—talking to her, touching her, sharing ice cream, showers and making love to her like there’s no tomorrow. But tomorrow does come, and letting go of Joe could destroy her. Sometimes love lasts a lifetime. Sometimes love reaches beyond death. Sometimes…love lasts forever.

So, if you're looking for "Divine Love", look no further. Here's two books you've just got to read.

Thanks for coming by. Have a fantastic Saturday and a lovely Mother's Day.
