from Make Me Yours by Tiffany Roberts
#3 Isle of the Forgotten series
You don’t often see angels outside of paranormal romance, but Tiffany Roberts has done a great job of incorporating them into her fantasy romance series Isle of the Forgotten. Gaelin stays on the prison island even though he can leave, he knows he is waiting for something. He just never expected what he was waiting for was his demon mate. If you like your heroes to be a little bit angsty…have a bit of a dark past, then Gaelin is perfect.

AN ANGEL HAUNTED BY THE PAST…
After battling the forces of shadow for millennia, Gaelin struggles to hold the fragile threads of his mind together. His only salvation from the encroaching darkness is in finding his mate. But when the other half of his soul is presented to him, she is not what he expected.
A WOMAN HE’S WAITED A LIFETIME FOR…
Banished to a magical island prison with her twin brother, Mayra finds herself free of their dark master for the first time in centuries. But, with each day on the island a battle for survival, she must face difficult choices — especially when she finds herself powerfully drawn to Gaelin, despite his loathing for what she is.
AN ISLAND MADE PRISON FOR THE UNFORGIVEN…
With her magic sealed and her master coming to retrieve her, Mayra will do anything to keep herself and her brother from enslavement. Gaelin’s offer of aid and protection gives her some hope — but is she willing to pay his price?
Standalone in a four book series, however, reading MAKE ME WHOLE will give more backstory. Warning: This book contains explicit sexual content and violence and is intended for mature readers only.
from Reaver by Larissa Ione
#5 Lords of Deliverance series
When it comes to epic battles between Heaven and Hell, the Lords of Deliverance…. delivers! HA! We meet Reaver in the earlier Demonica books but it probably wasn’t until LETHAL RIDER that I was left with the anticipation for his story. And boy what a story it is! I can’t tell you who or what or when or how because it would all be too spoilery. Suffice it to say Reaver is a larger than life presence, tough as nails, sexy as hell. He’s gone through so much and you can’t expect him to have the best attitude and disposition. He owns my heart because he is capable of an undying love that left me floored. And yeah, the fact he tames a pretty kick ass chick is pretty awesome too.

WARRIOR OF HEAVEN
Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before...to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.
ANGEL OF HELL
Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood...
from Dark Skye by Kresley Cole
#15 Immortals After Dark series
You know sometimes with paranormal creatures you have to pick your poison, or body feature. Vamps have fangs, demons have horns, angels have wings… there’s no way to have it all, right? Well here my friend is where you are wrong and haven’t met Thronos yet. This sexy, sinful angel has it all! Fanged, winged AND horned. The true combination to my heart. Plus, he’s been faithful to his mate Lanthe since they were mere kids and even after she betrayed him he’s stayed true to her for five hundred years. Yes, ladies and gents, a virgin hero with a lot of pent up need bubbling under the surface. You’ve been warned.

Series: Immortals After Dark #15
Published by Gallery Books
In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him—or vanquish him forever.
As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.
Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.
CAN THE HEAT OF DESIRE BURN BRIGHTER THAN VENGEANCE?
With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?
from Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh
#1 Guild Hunter series
Not only does Raphael rule New York, but he has a lot of power in other places of the world. He’s intense beauty and powerful aura makes him a formidable player in Singh’s world, but I think he’s one of the top angels in the genre because of his ability to do anything. He doesn’t look like a fighter by nature, but he uses that to his advantage and only when you feel his wrath is when you discover how truly powerful he really is.

FIRST IN THE GUILD HUNTER SERIES from “a major new talent” (CHRISTINE FEEHAN).
View our feature on Nalini Singh’s Angels' Blood.
Nalini Singh introduces readers to a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires.
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.
from The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward
No paranormal list would be complete without talking about the BDB series, am I right? While Lassiter hasn’t gotten his own book yet (we are dying for it though) he’s been a constant presence in the series and one that brings only the most joy. First, his looks. Then, his humor. And last, his soul. Lassiter has a way of making you swoon, laugh hysterically and then even tear up from his unexpectedly deep insights. I can’t wait to dive deeper under the angelic surface and terrible choice in clothes and learn all there is to know about this beautiful creature. Note: The Savior is NOT Lassiter’s book but it is the upcoming BDB release in which Lassiter I’m sure will play a big part.
Released: April 2 2019

Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #17
A vampire and a scientist’s fates are passionately entwined in a race against time in this thrilling romance in the #1 New York Times bestselling “utterly absorbing and deliciously erotic” (Angela Knight, New York Times bestselling author) Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.
Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.
As Murhder and Sarah’s destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers... or resume his lonely existence forevermore?
