Release Day Blitz: Angel Rising (Book Two) by Deena Remiel!

Hannah Livingston has the most infamous stalker that ever existed- Satan. She spent her sixth birthday with the Brethren, fighting an apocalyptic war that sent the Dark Prince back to Hell, and the rest of her life wondering if he’d be back for her soul someday. She needn’t wonder any longer.
Gabriel Seeker, Brethren Protector, spends his days and nights rescuing kids from sex traffickers and protecting their lives from further damage. He knows all too well the nightmarish world they’ve been stolen into, and it’s gotten harder to keep secret his own past horrors.
Hannah and Gabriel have always gotten along, first as friends, then as co-workers. She manages his life and he protects hers. A perfect, symbiotic relationship, so it would seem, until suppressed feelings for each other surface and forever change the landscape of their lives. Stricken with PTSD, the determined angel seeks to protect the woman he loves from Satan’s greedy and insidious clutches.
Deceit and seduction, desire and repression, collide in this epic, immortal story of love, duty, and sacrifice.

His recorded voice, so deep and raspy, sent waves of flutters and heat to every cell in her body. Instantly wet, she spent the next few minutes trying to regain some semblance of control. He’d a raging hunger for her. Dear Lord in heaven! With her raging desires for him, they could wind up setting the whole damn house on fire.
She took off her skirt and T-shirt, preferring something slinky and sexy just to ramp up the combustibility factor. She’d just bought it today and felt pretty crazy doing so. She’d never owned anything as racy as a royal blue, silky negligee. Not even with Rick. And that relationship was based mostly on sexual attraction to begin with.
Since Gabriel admired the finer things, and she hadn’t any of her own, she figured it was time. Sexy lingerie seemed a good place to start. She also bought bra and panty sets that were so freaking sexy, even she approved of the way she looked in them. Always loving a good tease, she thought she’d show him the sets and tell him she’d be wearing them all week. He could guess which one she was wearing each day, or he could find out when he undressed her. She checked the time on her phone.
He should’ve been here fifteen minutes ago. I wonder what’s taking him so long.
A horn beeped out front. She raced to the living room window and saw he’d ridden his Harley over. Where was the pizza? She chided herself. He’d probably eaten it before he made it back to his house. She’d love to go for a ride later. But much later. The man looked sexier than any Greek God, and she wondered if it was even legal to be that stunningly handsome. He stalked up the sidewalk in black boots, black leather pants, and a white T-shirt that hugged his chiseled chest and abs.
She caught his smoldering eyes through the window and cowered back, not wanting to ruin the seductive surprise she wore. Scampering to the front door, she hoped she’d make it before he did. Just as she reached out, the air around the knob glowed a neon blue, and the lock released. The door swung open, and he stood on her Welcome mat, looking very…welcoming.
He raised a brow and flashed a smile so wicked, it stole her breath and sent electric tingles around her nipples. “I do believe you said you were in need of some twiddling, ma’am.”
“Why, yes,” she croaked. “Yes, I am.”
“Then I’m your guy.”

Felicity Heaton

Once a proud angel of Heaven, Nevar is now a servant of Hell, bound to a new master—the King of Demons. Consumed by darkness and driven to seek revenge, he set in motion a series of events that awakened the Great Destroyer, a force that will bring about the apocalypse. Now, he is the creature’s master and the fate of our world rests in the hands of an angel with only darkness in his heart.
 Lost in the mortal realm without any recollection of how she came to be there, Lysia is only aware that she has survived a great battle. When she stumbles into a demon bar, she finds more than a chance to discover what happened to her—she finds a dark and deadly angel warrior who stirs fire in her veins and awakens soul-searing passion she cannot deny. With the mounting threat of the Great Destroyer, the forces of Heaven and Hell against him, and a band of dangerous angels intent on capturing Lysia on his heels, can Nevar protect the beautiful woman who is light to his darkness and find the strength to save the world?

In a flash, he jumped up from the floor and leapt at her. She yelped in surprise as he tackled her onto the bed.
“I’m just taking them off to sleep, you idiot,” she said laughing as he covered her face and neck in kisses.
“Mmmm.” He inhaled deeply, relishing her sweet scent. “You should know better than to bare your legs in front of me. You’ll never be left innocent when you do that.”
Chuckling, she looked up into his eyes ran a finger across his forehead, down his cheek then traced his lips. “You need to sleep.”
“I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” He moved downward and lifted her shirt with his teeth then kissed her belly. “I only have a lifetime to corrupt you.”
“Corrupt me?” She giggled and squirmed as he nipped her soft skin. “You make me sound like some kind of blessed virgin.”
He breathed against her belly, inhaling her scent, letting it fill his lungs and his memory. When he exhaled, it must’ve tickled her because she wriggled and tried to push him off.
“Stay still,” he ordered. When she did, he dragged his gaze up and down her body. Why was she still wearing clothes? The urge to be naked, feel her skin against his, was strong.
“God, you’re hot,” he mumbled, staring at her breasts.
Frowning, she covered them with her arms.
He tsked. “None of that.” Girls were so self-conscious of their bodies. He’d never understand it. It was their natural god-given curves, soft skin, and girly scent that men loved. Every imperfection – stretch mark, mole, wrinkle – just added to the humanness, gave women character. The guys he knew didn’t want a boring Barbie doll.

Emerson was real, and beautiful, and her tiny body felt perfect under his. He leaned down and kissed her. She wrapped her arms around his neck and held on, clasping her hands together like she never wanted to let go.
