Gilded Wings: The Angel Chronicles, Book 2

The Beloved Angel-Warrior Team from Until Next Time Returns!

When Matt and Emily are sent on their second mission they have no idea how truly dark human nature can become...

Emily never wanted to face humans again. With the heartache that went on down below, she’s still trying to figure out how to save souls that don’t deserve saving. The only one she wants to see again is Jason - the young man she fell in love with who became the soulmate she simply can’t forget...

Matt was trained to protect and defend the souls down below. Longing to feel the heartfelt emotions that come from being human, Matt wants nothing more than to have just one life - one chance - to live and love the girl of his dreams...

The powerful team find themselves in a brand new century, living in the Gilded Age of New York City. Emily takes over the body of Anya, a young Russian girl who arrives on Ellis Island after a hideous tragedy. There she meets up with a strangely familiar young man by the name of Drew Parrish, who helps Anya survive in an unknown world of luxury, snobbery and…obsession.

What Anya’s inner angel doesn’t know is that the soul she loves is also back. This time around Jason goes by the name of Max Carrow. Once a quiet and kind boy, he’s now part of the ‘Four Hundred Club,’ and wants nothing more than to be among the most admired as he climbs the shaky ladder of society’s elite.

As two worlds merge, Emily and Matt struggle under the weight of their “Gilded Wings.” Not only will they have to figure out who they should fight to save, but they must also face a romantic choice that could destroy them both.

Drew smiled. “Huh, I like that. Well...we should go.”

Anya grabbed him, “Mister, um?”

“Parrish. Drew Parrish.” He looked down at the graceful hand circling his wrist.

She could feel her face begin to burn with embarrassment as she pulled away and straightened her skirt. “Mr. Parrish.”

“Drew.” His deep voice seemed to enter her ears like a thrilling whisper.

“Drew.” She let out a sigh, trying to shake the strange feeling from her body. “Are you sure this home you’re taking us to—this household—will understand our special...situation?”

Drew stuck his hands in his pockets. “I’ve sent a messenger ahead. Mr. Carrow is very excited to meet his new governess and her ward. I told him the truth about your relationship with Gregori and how it came to be, Anya. But, please don’t worry. He’s a wonderful man and wanted to help you both very much. He helped me when I first came here. You’ll never meet a nicer family.”

“And...the lady of the house,” Anya continued. “How does she feel about our coming?”

Well, I can NOT wait to read this one!!  And now a tid-bit from the amazing author.

Who Would You Like to Have Dinner With - Past & Present?

Okay, ladies, this one’s for you…

We’re going to do breakfast, lunch AND Dinner on this one just to fit them all in. If we were speaking about the present, I would have to give a BIG shout out to two very different people. One would be Matthew Morrison (the teacher of the Glee class on television). The other would have to be Dean Koontz - my absolute favorite writer (of this century). When it comes to Mr. Morrison, I would like to have breakfast. I have a feeling, over coffee, I would be speaking with an extremely intelligent person. From the Broadway stage to the movies and television, his entertainment factor is well above par. But, I can see by the look in those eyes that he would be intriguing to talk to about sports, history, politics - a great many things, in fact. We would have that pot of coffee and enjoy a tango (The dance, people! To work off all the caffeine!) before we said adieu.

When it comes to lunch, I pick Koontz. Still one of the greatest moments was a letter I received from this amazing writer who let me know that a story I had written to him in a fan letter, of all things, made him laugh so hard he fell out of his chair. Can you imagine how cool it is to know that you made Dean Koontz laugh? I would love to talk about everything from dogs to Odd Thomas to the need for sarcasm and wit - which I still believe is missing in this day and age. I would love to pick his literary brain. Now THAT would be a great lunch!

And for dinner, we reach out to the past. I certainly do not wish this to come out as creepy even though I know it will. Although I would love to meet many historical figures - from Houdini to Lincoln to Jane Austen - I have to give the ‘shout-out’ here to Poe. Even now, his words have a symmetry that have yet to be copied. His stories were frightening and seductive all at the same time. I would wonder how he would feel if he was still alive knowing that The Masque of the Red Death has basically come true, when you see all the pride and prejudice (not to use a line from another writer I am in love with) that seems to be a daily occurrence on our television sets. 

So from a tango (yes, the dance) with Morrison to a lunch with Koontz, I would love to end the evening with a vodka (or whatever was his poison) with Poe!  THAT would be a perfect day!
