"a sexy paranormal and a promising new series"

I enjoyed reviewing "Fallen" and getting to know the characters Karen Erickson created. While I love paranormal romance I haven't read anything with angels so this was an exciting change. Gabriel is a true protector and Jordan has a sweet innocence layered over a determination to survive.

Once, Jordan enters the Tattoo Voodoo shop the passion between her and Gabriel, the tattoo artist, sizzles. Gabe works with his best friends Darla and Ryder who are more like sister and brother. Although Gabe doesn't remember his past as a guardian angel or his connection to Jordan he can't deny his attraction and growing feelings for her. She brings to life tender and protective feelings he didn't realize he possessed. Gabe wants to deny the attraction but then Darla, guided by her visions, informs him that to remain on earth he must fight the evil hunting Jordan.

Before Jordan and Gabe can discover what is between them, a messenger approaches Jordan and demands that she speak to her mother, now imprisoned for nearly killing Jordan. Jordan does not want to face her mother's evil. She refuses and it's not until the messenger threatens Gabe's life that she concedes. Jordan, Gabe, Darla and Ryder travel to the prison to confront the mother knowing they are on the verge of a deadly battle.

From the moment I was introduced to the characters I wanted to know what motivated Jordan's mother to such evil actions, what battle does Gabe have to fight and will he remain on earth? The author did a wonderful job conveying the characters emotions so I was invested in the outcome. I'm fairly certain from the way the book ended Darla and Ryder will have their own stories. I can't wait to read more on these fallen angels.

Jordan Sumner is ready to embrace her new life. After nearly dying at the hands of her mother, moving to a new town offers new possibilities. First on her agenda? Get a tattoo. She just doesn’t expect the tattoo artist to be so incredibly sexy or for her to recognize him as the guardian angel who saved her life years ago.

Gabriel Wilder knows the minute he sees Jordan she’s different from any other woman he’s ever met. A fallen angel with no memory of his past, he senses Jordan is linked to him. He’s drawn to her sexually–in every sort of way. They’re meant for each other and no matter how much he fights it, he knows it’s a waste of his time.

An unknown evil is sent from Jordan’s past and is ready to sink its claws into her. Gabe must fight to save what he considers his–Jordan. But is he strong enough to fend off the demon who wants Jordan as his sacrifice, now that he’s fallen…fallen for her?
