Blurb

Can his love mend her broken heart?   Alexa Gray has had more than one tragedy strike at Christmas. The thought of moving on makes her feel she’s staining the memory of the love she shared with her dead husband and child. Can guardian angel Angelo show her she has more love inside her to give?

Excerpt (non-erotic)

It had snowed again, and if she didn’t dread this time of the year, she probably would’ve thought it beautiful. But the snow reminded her of black ice, the swerving on the road, glass, torn metal, the smell of blood and tears. Sighing, she got up from the desk, stretched her arms above her head, groaning as the muscles in her body protested the length of time she’d spent in the chair. A glance at the clock on her desk advised her that she’d actually worked through lunch and dinner. Hell, she didn’t even remember eating breakfast. After the incident with the neighbor, she hadn’t been outside for about two weeks. It was much easier to ignore someone who didn’t want to be ignored by avoiding them. It was so nice to just have alone time. Granted she had more than her share of it, but she loved it. She heard her stomach growl and shook her head as she left her office, padding down barefooted to the kitchen to grab something to eat. Just as she was opening a cabinet to grab the peanut butter, she heard a sound in the backyard. There was a flash of light, which she chalked up to her eyes playing tricks on her. Moving away from the counter, she walked towards the back door that led out to her backyard, slowly opened the door, and peered out. Squaring her shoulders as she told herself there was nothing to be afraid of, she went outside and stood, checking the yard. She thought her eyes were playing tricks on her again at first. As she looked near her pool, there was a shape there she didn’t recognize. The porch light gave plenty of light, but that one area there seemed a bit more shadowed. Tentatively, she moved forward and then stopped in her tracks as her eyes adjusted, and she saw what appeared to be a body with wings. Wings? I must be sleepier than I thought. She closed her eyes and opened them quickly, when another white flash went off.

Review:

For a short novella, On Angel’s Wings packs a punch.  I’m not sure if Ms. Price was going for an “inspirational” erotic read (hey a new genre) but for this reviewer, it read like it.  What’s not inspirational about a guardian angel that falls in love with his charge and is willing to give up everything for her?

When the story opens its filled with hope, joy and the Christmas spirit.  In fateful turn of events, Alexa’s world is turned upside down.  Grieving is a part of her life.  In fact, its all she does now, 5 years later.  After a session with her shrink, she comes home to an empty house.  Not a few a minutes later, there is a bright light and a naked man freezing in the snow but the pool.

Feeling an instant connection with him, she brings him in, feeds and clothes him but is very confused.  One hot encounter later, she runs into her bedroom and tells him that he needs to leave as soon as possible.

All I can say is Angelo is hot, patient and very tender with Alexa.  He has been in love with her for so long that its painful.  Willing to give up his wings for her, he knows that Alexa has to make the choice…not him.  There is one scene in particular that had me near tears but forces Alexa to confront her grieving and realize that its time to move on.  Beautifully written Nikki.

Again, this read like a inspirational, erotic story and it has a lot to say about grieving, losing someone you live, finding hope when hope is lost and letting go and finding true love once again.  Ms. Price weaves all of this into a brilliant story and I can’t recommend it enough.
