TITLE: Devil's Angel
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
Angels are hanging out at a bar called Heaven's Gate.
Claire hadn’t realized how tall he was until he rolled off the stool and stood. Most of the angels she met were etheric beauties. They were the inspiration for such artists as Michelangelo, DaVinci and many other renaissance artists.
This one had a hard quality about him that simply made him mean-looking. He had the same features as most others of his race, but the stubble on his face hid the smooth skin. A scar by his right eye marred the perfection prized by the angelic realm. He didn’t seem to care. Yeah, he dressed all right, in a Ralph Lauren way. He wore a clean, expensive shirt and equally pricey jeans, purposely made to look old. Or perhaps they really were.
He plunged a hand in his jeans pocket, pulling out some cash. The other hand dug through his dark blond hair, which fell just above his shoulders.
“Fuck it.” She heard him mutter, his voice thick with an Aussie accent.
She watched as he swayed, looking around. He turned and headed toward her. He threw down a few twenty-dollar bills.
“That should cover me?”
His expression masked whatever thoughts consumed him at that particular moment. The frown on his face turned into a grimace. But Claire could sense his mind was racing at light speed.
She reached for the money and their fingers touched. For a moment, she thought he made the earth move.
Until she realized it was an explosion that rocked the back of the building.
