Shadows by Paula Weston

Gaby has been having almost erotic nightmares about a man she doesn't even know.  She doesn't understand where these dreams are coming from and wishes they would just go away.  Then she's sitting in bar with a girlfriend and sees him across the room.  That's right, the man of her dreams is real...

Tundra Books invited me to be part of their blog tour on this book and sent me a copy of the book to read for review (thank you).  The book has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

I've read stories about fallen angels and demons before, but this story is truly different.  There's no standard formula here, the author has added a unique problem for Gaby, and she doesn't know who to trust.

Gaby thinks she is just a human grieving the death of her twin brother.  She hasn't gotten over it even though it's been a year since his death.  Then Rafe shows up and thinks she lying when she doesn't recognize him.  It just keeps getting more complicated as it goes along.

Someone has washed Gaby's memory.  She has skills for fighting that she's not aware of.  She doesn't know which batch of angels are on her side or if any are.  She is so confused and alone.  The worst part is the way they test her; they think shock will bring her memory back.  Wrong...

This is a busy story with many subplots strewn through it.  Being the first in the series, this one wets your appetite for the next one.  Will Gaby ever recover her memory?  Will she end up sleeping with Rafe?  Will she even survive?

Happy reading.
