Blurb about Heavenly Desire:
Will
he sacrifice his wings for a woman he loves but can never keep?

Jade Ashley
has a past she’d like to forget and a destiny she isn’t aware of. A stranger,
Clyde, saves her from an attack and demonstrates extraordinary abilities she
believed only she possessed. She soon realizes he’s her guardian angel sent to
reunite her with her long lost sisters, who like her are part of a new breed of
immortals, Elementals, prophesied to determine the outcome of the upcoming war.

Clyde, an
angel, battles the one thing he believes will lead to his fall from heaven—his
new found emotions, forbidden among his kind. Nonetheless, the Angel Lords
promise to promote him to warrior when he completes his last assignment—to find
Jade. When he does, emotions he never knew possible arise. For the first time
in two thousand years, he curses his existence, knowing she can never be his.
Will he sacrifice his wings for a woman he loves but can’t keep?

Excerpt from Heavenly Desire:
In
two thousand years, he had never met a woman whose laughter could light up a
dark pub, highlighting her features as everything else, all surroundings and
distractions, faded away.
There
was something about her that captivated him, enticing him away from all else
and lured him toward her. And the more he gazed at her, the more he felt a
twinge of something he couldn’t quite describe, an unknown surge that bubbled
inside him from the first moment he’d caught sight of her, and it wouldn’t
release him.
He
didn’t mind watching her work or talk or laugh. No, he didn’t mind guarding her
at all.
Her
brows drew together seemingly speculating his thoughts. He said exactly what
was on his mind.
“I
would not mind that at all.”
Her
eyes widened, then she looked away from him. She attempted to put some distance
between them, but his arm, firmly wrapped around her waist, held her still. He
didn’t want to let her go. He wanted to enjoy the warmth of her body against
his. It would be a fleeting moment until their stop, but he wouldn’t relinquish
her until then.
