First off, GABRIEL'S ANGEL is, indeed, a reprint of the original Silhouette edition that was published in 1989. I had read this story years ago, but wanted to reread it and was intrigued with the new cover. Is the book a Christmas story? Not in the literal sense. In the way that it inspires love, happiness, selflessness, and a sense of well-being, then yes, it's a good holiday read.

Laura Malone, former model and a woman whose face was known worldwide, is on the run--not from an abusive husband or a group of bad guys determined to due her harm, but from a domineering, powerful ex-mother-in-law who wants nothing more than to take away Laura's unborn child. Although Laura's former husband is no longer alive, the unborn grandbaby is, at least to Mother-In-Law-Dearest, the necessary means to keep her son alive. With more money than she knows what to do with, she sends out private detectives to find Laura, to force her to return home to hand over custody of her child.

While traveling through Colorado on her way to Dallas, Laura makes a wrong turn--and almost ends up dead during a snowstorm on an isolated mountain road. Fortunately, she narrowly avoids hitting Gabriel Bradley, an artist who has chosen solitude in a small mountain cabin to ease his pain and grief over his brother's untimely death. With no other viable ways to get Laura rescued, he takes her home with him--and is immediately struck not only by her beauty, but by her inner strength in the lengths she'll go to protect her child.

As the storm rages on, Laura and Gabe learn more about each other than they'd planned--and they devise a plan that includes a marriage of convenience to save Laura's unborn child from its grandmother. But their feelings, although not spoken aloud, are edging towards love. Will it be enough to save this family?

Rereading GABRIEL'S ANGEL, I was once again reminded of why I love Nora Roberts and her books. A contrived relationship and overly-used storyline (i.e. marriage of convenience, marry for the baby's sake, etc.) it may be, but Ms. Roberts has a way of writing that fully immerses you in the story. A true romance classic, this is one to reread over and over again.

Worst sample EVER

I went to read the sample to get a feel for this book. Was it an older book they are recycling or is it in a newer style. But the entire sample is a list of all her older books. NO TEXT OF THE BOOK AT ALL. So irritated won't get book at all.

    Not my favorite

    The cover lead me to believe this would be a Christmas book. I kept reading and reading and lol and behold it has nothing to do with Christmas. Half of the book is about the 'passion' between them, which I thought got old really quick. It had a good story line and I wanted to figure out how it ended but I would get it from the library instead of spending money buying it.

    Old Nora Roberts story

    Enjoyed reading the story several years ago, and enjoyed re-reading it. Probably would not have purchased it if I'd realized it was not a new book.

    Good Book - nice relaxing read

    I enjoyed the story line and the character development. I did feel that the resolution of the conflict was wrapped up a little too neatly at the end of the story. A little too much of a "storybook" finish - even for this genre. I am a fan of the writer - but maybe I have been reading too much of J. D. Robb's "In Death" series.

    Disappointed

    Not one of her best. She gets better, much better with her later books.

    Fluffy and fun

    I enjoy the hot and misunderstood curmudgeon in need of the love of a good woman dynamic.

    Formulaic but enjoyable.
