Paranormal Romance is still a healthy market by anyone's standard and angels and their steamy shenanigans will always have their fans (myself, alas, not necessarily among them!). Headline's acquisition of Avenger's Angel, the new novel from US author Heather Killough-Walden is, one hopes, a shrewd commercial move, particularly ahead of their own dedicated SF/F imprint which is currently being developed by newly appointed editor John Wordsworth.
"The first in Heather Killough-Walden's fantastic new paranormal series, THE LOST ANGELS, features Uriel, the Angel of Vengeance.
Four thousand years ago, four archangels were cast down to Earth in human form. God's favourites, they came to find their mates, the other half of their souls made only for them, without whom they will ever be complete.
Uriel, Gabriel, Azrael and Michael, however, were not alone. They were followed by another, determined to find the archesses for himself, and whose power cannot be underestimated. But after centuries of fruitless searching, the archangels - and their enemy - have all but given up hope.
Until one day beautiful and gifted Eleanore Granger crosses paths with Uriel, the Angel of Vengeance. And as a storm rages, outside forces conspire together, initiating an age old battle of good versus evil to win the first archess."
