For now…I give you Felicity Heaton and the Her Angel latest addition!
It’s great to be back here at Bookin It Reviews, and wonderful to finally be talking about another book in my Her Angel romance series. The latest story in the series, Her Guardian Angel, will be available from tomorrow, Saturday 30th July. It’s the first novel length story in the series. The first three were all novellas.
We started the series back in August 2010 with the sexy alpha hero Apollyon and his beautiful French witch, Serenity, in Her Dark Angel. In October, the sensitive but passionate Lukas followed in Her Fallen Angel with his human heroine, Annelie. Another very alpha hero in the form of hunter angel Einar and a very sassy alpha half-demon heroine Taylor followed in November with Her Warrior Angel.
Now, it’s time for them all to come together again along with a new angelic hero, Marcus, a guardian angel on a mission to protect a mortal female, Amelia, from a dark destiny.
Writing Her Guardian Angel was a real adventure for me. It’s an epic love story full of emotion, passion and action, non-stop from start to finish, with dramatic scenes that will melt even the hardest heart and certainly caused a few tears when I was writing them! I love the world I’ve created with the Her Angel series, and being able to explore it in a novel length story was wonderful. I was able to reveal more about the angels and the world they live in, Heaven and Hell, and the politics behind everything. In Her Guardian Angel, we visit all three realms—Heaven, Hell and the mortal world. The action takes place in all three worlds, but mostly Heaven and the mortal realm. Readers will be able to finally see what my vision of Heaven is like!
I mixed together several story ideas when plotting Her Guardian Angel, combining notes I had written over the past two years, and moulding it into a story that will take readers on a wild rollercoaster ride full of tension, drama and desire. The plot is intense, from the moment Amelia is attacked by demonic angels and discovers that there’s more to the sexy man next door, Marcus, than meets the eye. She’s thrown into his world and what starts out feeling like a dream rapidly becomes a nightmare and a fight for survival for both of them. I wrote the first draft of the story in record time because the plot swept me along and I couldn’t stop.
It’s not just the plot that will carry readers away either. The romance between Marcus and Amelia is as much a rollercoaster as the action that is bringing them together. I’d be a liar if I said that Her Guardian Angel is the heroine, Amelia’s, story. It’s all about Amelia, but it’s Marcus who really grows throughout the story.
Marcus is a very distant soul. He’s an angel whose loyalty is to Heaven and his duty, and his mission is what matters most to him. He doesn’t like mortals and wants to join Heaven’s army where he won’t have to interact with them, and doesn’t believe that he can be changed, but meeting Amelia and coming to know her does gradually change him. When he saves her from her rowdy ex-lover in the dead of night and protects her, he talks to her for the first time and it triggers something in him that only intensifies when she touches his hand, the brief contact awakening feelings he has suppressed and ignored. He craves her and the new feelings he experiences. Readers will grow with him as he learns about emotions, about desire and most of all the lengths that a man will go to in the name of love. He goes from fighting for Heaven to fighting for Amelia, against serious and deadly odds, and in the process he learns more about himself and about the strength that love can give us.
In all of the previous stories in the series, we’ve had a notion that there are darker sides to the angels. In Her Guardian Angel, we find a man in Marcus who is aware of his darkness and who accepts that he isn’t a good man. He has taken thousands of mortal lives during his current lifetime, reaping battlefields in the name of Heaven, and feels unworthy of someone as pure and kind as Amelia. He is the opposite in some respects of how readers will perceive angels, and how the heroine sees them. He is comfortable with the things he has done until he realises that he’s falling for Amelia, and then he wants to warn her away, to convince her that he’s dangerous and not worthy of her. He wants to protect her from everything, including himself. Will he find the forgiveness he desires from Amelia and will she accept him for what he is? Well… you’ll have to read the story to find out.

Her Guardian Angel
A simple mission becomes a fight for survival in this fantastic instalment in the Her Angel series.
A guardian angel dedicated to his duty, Marcus will do whatever Heaven asks of him, but even his loyalty has its limits. When his superior orders him to gain Amelia’s trust through seduction, Marcus starts to question his mission and his feelings for the beautiful woman he has watched over since her birth.
Amelia has gone from one bad relationship to another, so when a gorgeous guy moves in next door looking like Mr Right, she hopes he doesn’t turn out to be another black knight in disguise. But there’s more to Marcus than meets the eye, and when he rescues her from three demonic men, Amelia is thrust into his nightmarish world—a world where God and the Devil exist, and only one angel can save her from death—Marcus, the angel she’s falling in love with.
On the run from demonic angels and the Devil himself, aided by Marcus’s angel friends and their amazing women, fighting for survival against the odds, Marcus and Amelia discover a love that will last forever.
A love so strong it will shake Heaven and Hell.

Felicity Heaton is a romance author writing as both Felicity Heaton and F E Heaton. She is passionate about penning paranormal tales full of vampires, witches, werewolves, angels and shape-shifters, and has been interested in all things preternatural and fantastical since she was just a child. Her other passion is science-fiction and she likes nothing more than to immerse herself in a whole new universe and the amazing species therein. She used to while away days at school and college dreaming of vampires, werewolves and witches, or being lost in space, and used to while away evenings watching movies about them or reading gothic horror stories, science-fiction and romances.
Having tried her hand at various romance genres, it was only natural for her to turn her focus back to the paranormal, fantasy and science-fiction worlds she enjoys so much. She loves to write seductive, sexy and strong vampires, werewolves, witches, angels and alien species. The worlds she often dreams up for them are vicious, dark and dangerous, reflecting aspects of the heroines and heroes, but her characters also love deeply, laugh, cry and feel every emotion as keenly as anyone does. She makes no excuses for the darkness surrounding them, especially the paranormal creatures, and says that this is their world. She’s just honoured to write down their adventures.
