Today's Tease comes from
Messenger's Angel
(The Lost Angels series)
Heather Killough-Walden
The Blurb: 

Since the beginning of time, the archangels have longed to know true love. When four female angels were created for the four archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Azrael, a chaos spurned by jealousy erupted, and the archesses were secreted away to Earth. The four favored archangels followed, prompting a search that has lasted millenia

As the former Messenger Archangel, Gabriel has had lifetimes to search for the one woman intended for him. So he's surprised to discover Juliette Anderson in the dark corner of his favorite pub in Scotland, the land he's called home for two thousand years- and the last place he expected to find her. The connection between them is strong, hot and instantaneous.

Juliette is in the town to gather research for her doctoral thesis. She doesn't need a tall, gorgeous man with silver
eyes to distract her. Especially after he kisses her and calls her his archess. She figures he's crazy. Until she finds herself pursued by dangerous men, led by a fallen archangel with vampiric tendencies.

Now Juliette must turn to Gabriel for help - and unravel the truth behind her existence.

The Tease:
She inhaled quickly, as if readying for a dive, and then was crushed against his hard body as he trapped her beneath him and claimed her lips in a kiss.
Lightening struck somewhere nearby, followed closely by a peal of thunder that effectively overrode every other sound in the pub.
Reality took a back seat in the heat of the kiss; magic seared through her muscles and bones, boiling her blood in her veins and curling her toes in her shoes. Her hands found their way to the rock wall of his chest and she felt the bass-beat drumming of his heart as he devoured her and she melted beneath him. Time ceased to exist; she could almost hear it winding down and dying. Sound faded and her world tunneled until only she was left standing. She - and this stranger who was kissing her as if she was his wife and he had not seen her in a thousand years.
I'm really enjoying this series. It is well written, has plenty of action and a sufficient amount of romance.
My Rating for this one: 4 out of 5
