Standalone MM Paranormal romance
He wants to forget
West is an archangel’s assassin delivering justice to supernatural creatures who break the law. Not a straightforward job because he also has to absorb the memories of those he kills. Even worse, West is breaking the law himself in an attempt to free his brother from hell. If he doesn’t succeed before his archangel boss finds out, West will be joining his sibling.
He wants to remember
A young guy wakes in a London park with his memories gone. He has no idea who he is, or where he comes from. A bracelet engraved with the single word Tao is the only clue to his identity. With no sign of his memory returning, he drifts into a life on the streets. Begging is his only way to survive.
Two worlds collide
ARCHANGEL’S ASSASSIN in available to purchase below
“As an archangel’s assassin, you are on the side of right. Every life you end, should be by my command. You do not get to choose who lives and who dies.”
“That is my burden.”
Not only do we absolutely love Barbara Elsborg; her writing and her excellent dry sense of humour, but we are also huge fans of paranormal stories, specifically Angels and Fae. Archangel’s Assassin was brilliant. It was so well written, addictive, suspenseful, sweet and very sexy. We loved it and just couldn’t put it down. We were riveted! This author is so underrated as she never fails to deliver a fabulously engaging story.
‘Tao tried not to wallow in self-pity but sometimes it was hard not to. Having a friend to talk to would make a big difference, someone to help him try to find out who he was. Loneliness was his only friend. How clichéd was that?’
In typical Barbara Elsborg fashion we found one of her male characters –Tao- to be a sweet endearing, childlike, hopeful and wonderfully emotional and passionate character. Trademark Elsborg. Yet despite this, he shows real strength and compassion. Tao wakes up in Hyde Park remembering nothing from his past nor does he have any memory of who he is. He cuts a lonely and hard done by character until faced with an intense attraction and a growing confidence in who he is. This welcome change when he meets the mysterious West.
‘West was so awash with emotions, drowning in hateful memories, that it was crushing his spirit, breaking his heart. Tao had love to give and West needed love. They could help each other. Tao just had to make him see that.’
West is an enigmatic character who Tao just cannot stop thinking about. When he’s with him magical things happen which takes them both by surprise. Their paths meet under horrible circumstances, which broke our hearts. West is on a mission and no one gets in his way.
“Having no memory has forced me to live in the moment, take what I can get and make the best of it that I can. I want to enjoy life.”
This story was full of twists and turns, swoony romance, heat, angels and demons written in a humorous yet emotional style that we come to love and expect from Barbara Elsborg. We HIGHLY recommend Archangel’s Assassin to readers who love paranormal and mm. You will fall in book love!
We ADORE Barbara Elsborg’s writing! Whether it’s MF, MMF, MM, Contemporary, Paranormal or suspense, this lady always delivers the emotion with a side of witty banter between her characters.
