Archangel of Mercy, the first book in my new series about Fallen Archangels and the women who capture their hearts, is due for release on 4th December 2012. Here's the back cover copy:

Between an angel and a desperate woman comes salvation-

and a raw passion that challenges them at every turn…

When Aurora Robinson attempts to open a rift between dimensions to embrace her true heritage, an arrogant Archangel is the only one who can save her from the jaws of hell. And while she owes Gabriel her life, she’s determined not to fall at his feet-despite the desire she feels whenever they’re together.

After his wings were brutally destroyed millennia ago, Gabriel has no compassion for humans like those who ruined him and betrayed the ones he loved. But when he inexplicably finds himself defying ancient protocols to rescue a woman from a fate worse than death, he is shocked by the searing attraction he feels for a mortal.

As the ancient forces that seek to punish Aurora for her actions close in, Gabriel offers the tempting woman protection at his private sanctuary. But as they both succumb to their desires, they discover an even deeper connection-one that threatens to consume them.

And here is a never-before-seen excerpt! Hope you enjoy :-)

And her tangled thoughts vanished. For one eternal, eerie moment an overwhelming sensation of deja vu shivered through her. As if his perfectly sculpted face, enhanced by a sexy five o’clock shadow, was as familiar as her own reflection. Mesmerized she gazed into his astonishing eyes; a swirling kaleidoscope of blues, greens and silvers. She had never seen anything so captivatingly beautiful and yet threaded through the awe was a faint echo of haunting recognition.

She might have remained staring into his eyes forever if he hadn’t once again kneed her thighs farther apart. She gasped and deliberately broke the mesmeric contact as he settled himself more securely against her vulnerable pussy.

“What—” Her voice was husky, raw, a humiliating reminder of how horny she was for this complete stranger. She glared at his jaw, but his jaw was a thing of masculine perfection and it didn’t calm her skittering pulses in the least.

“Hmm?” The questioning rumble shivered over her skin as he lowered his head and grazed his jaw along the curve of her cheek. Her mouth dried, throat closed and mind jellified.

For the life of her she couldn’t remember what she’d wanted to ask him.

Destined to fall... destined to love...

Just to clarify, Archangel of Mercy is written under my Christina Ashcroft (http://www.christinaashcroft.com) name, while my erotic historical romances are under my Christina Phillips (http://www.christinaphillips.com) name. Sorry for any confusion :-)

I'll be back with a sexy snippet from book 3 of my ancient Roman/Druid series Forbidden! See you later!
