With a messed up family background and a tendency to grow claws and fangs, Tanner Chance isn’t exactly the boy next door. But he’s a decent cop, and he keeps himself on the side of the good guys. Convenient, because when he rescues a survivor of a horrific shifter attack he finds himself instantly smitten—with an honest-to-goodness angel, as innocent as she is irresistible.
Marna may be angelic, but she’s not stupid or weak. She can take care of herself. Tanner is more temptation than protection anyway. Or so she thinks, until someone wearing her face starts taking out some of New Orleans’ more unsavory paranormals. With police and predators both gunning for her blood, Marna has no choice but to trust Tanner…even though what’s sparking between them is hotter than anything holy.
In Angel in Chains Marna had her wings ripped off, by a psychotic shifter. But she’s saved by his brothers. The big question is, are they good guys or as bad as their brother?
Tanner is a shifter and a cop, and he’s had a thing for Marna ever since he looked into her baby blues. He knows he should stay away from her, but she’s an angel in a hard world. He wants to protect her from both the murder she’s been framed of committing, and a danger she doesn’t see coming.
Marna doesn’t need or want Tanner’s protection. She may believe he’s nothing like his brother, but that doesn’t mean she believes he’s a good guy. In fact, she knows he’s a bad boy. But this angel finds that she is attracted to the bad boy.
Marna went from a sweet angel to a strong kickass heroine. When she can’t figure out why her death touch doesn’t work, and why her wings are so sensitive (even though they aren’t there anymore), she and Tanner try to figure everything out. They go see Sam and Selina, and Bastion (who surprised me in this story) turns up.
Cynthia Eden writes amazing Romantic Suspense and when she adds in the Paranormal, watch out! You won’t want to put this book down.
