Overview

Alexandria Hayes-Lewis is blessed with the perfect life. By day she manages her family’s detective agency in Seravan, the beautiful beach town where she was born and raised. By night she makes certain her devilishly handsome husband knows just how much she loves him.

Lexie never knew she’d been marked at birth by an Angel's Kiss—until one ordinary case turned deadly.

A brutal attack awakens a deeply hidden family legacy: a superhuman strength and vitality. Not only is she stronger—her gift can intensify the strength and power of immortal beings. With the secrets of her heritage unlocked, and her legacy revealed, Lexie becomes the prey.

Terrified by changes she doesn’t understand and sensual nightmares she can’t control, Lexie desperately searches for ways to harness the power flowing through her veins. But when people die and her family is threatened, she takes the ultimate step against those who want to shield her, those who want to possess her, and those who want to kill her. In a frantic bid for freedom, she enlists the help of an unusual guardian and an ancient weapon.

Will it be enough to save her?

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Anita Kingsberry
Lynne Stevie is a paranormal writer. She is a wonderfully inventive, electrifying and humorous writer all rolled into a pleasurable package. Angel’s Kiss is filled with sensuality, betrayal, and intrigue couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed her style of writing. I would highly recommend this novel. The novel was an exhilarating page turner and I cannot wait to read her next novel.
Amazon.com - Marietta unknown
Best of New Books! This book was riveting from the first page to the last. I could not put it down. I read the entire book in one day and it left me wanting more. I look forward to her next book.
Goodreads - Laurie Franco
This was an amazing book that I honestly could not put down. The characters are all very likable, I love the sexual tension between Lexie and some of the other characters (who shall remain nameless), and the entire plot was unique. Watching Lexie grow and embrace her powers was wonderful and I truly hope that there will be a sequel soon to continue on with the story. Highly recommend this book, great read!
Nightowl Review - Don M
Angel's Kiss is a solidly written book. Plot and character development are very nice. The plot is straight, with no twists and turns, except for the final resolution which not many readers are going to see coming. Readers will empathize with Lexie. She is just a young girl who is in way over her head due to nothing she did. The book reads fast, and is a page-turner. Angel's Kiss is one of the better paranormal/suspense books I've read in quite a while.

Meet the Author

Lynne Stevie was raised on a small farm in the Midwest, the closest neighbor was miles away and there were only 3 television stations available. To say that she had an active imagination is a huge understatement. She readily admits to having a fascination for magic, fantasy and the paranormal from a young age.

After earning a bachelor degree in Criminology she married her college sweetheart and traded farm country for the sugar white beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Now she divides her time between writing paranormal and urban fantasy novels, and taking care of her three children, two dogs, one guinea pig and terrific husband.

    A PI attacked, strange dreams, immortals, and a guardian canine. These and more add up to one thrillingly amazing debut novel from Lynne Stevie.

    Lexie, our main character is a private detective with a surprising heritage. This heritage rears its head when she's attacked one night.
    The characters are so real that you're drawn in immediately.

    I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for the next installment.

    A story full of mystery and danger.
    Deception, passion and immortal creatures.
    A strong willed female character.
    An unknown past fills her present and future.

    This story is filled with everything that draws me to a novel. It has a beautiful, strong, independent female character. She is a successful business woman. She runs her own private investigator firm. A case starts the debacle of her life. She finds herself a victim of an attack that changes her perception of life. She discovers she is more than human and no one will give her a straight answer. Who can she trust? Her grandmother seems to have lost her mind. Her husband, who only wants to protect her. The man that comes through her dreams drives her insane.

    Her life is changing and she can't stop it. The story is full of twists of fate and unsolved mysteries. It is full of cliff hangers and the end... (well I just can't give it away)... lets just say wow!!!

    I can't wait to read more stories by Lynne Stevie
    I can only hope a sequel to this novel is already printed somewhere, just waiting for a release date or I think I will go crazy waiting to read more about Alexandria Lewis.

    I absolutely loved this book! With a unique story-line on angels

    I absolutely loved this book! With a unique story-line on angels and
    vampires, and slight elements of the ancient egyptian era, this book had
    a truly wonderful and captivating aspect that I do not always see in
    many other books. The main characters are portrayed as very strong but
    also remain vulnerable as a true person would be. Once I started
    reading, I could not put it down! I am truly impressed by the author's
    way of writing ... It truly makes me feel as if I am a part of the
    story itself and holds me captivated and definitely wanting more! :) I
    do hope to see further sequels coming in the future from this author
    with this story-line, and possibly different story-lines in the future
    as well. I look forward to following this author on her journey in
    books! :)

    Angel's Kiss is a well-written attention grabber with suprises at every
    turn. Lexi is a private detective who is married to her college
    sweetheart, Alan, living a content and happy life. One night, while on
    assignment, Lexie is attacked and dragged across town to the rooftop of
    an old hotel under construction. She fights off her attacker but blacks
    out immeditey aftrward. When she wakes up the following morning, Lexie
    has no idea just how much her life has changed and how much more it will
    forever change. Strange events, bizzarre dreams, and an uncooperative
    grandmother (Beatrix) leave Lexi with even more questions. Since it
    appears that her grandmother is the only person who can explain this new
    life, Lexi indulges her evasiveness (but only briefly). Beatrix actually
    made me mad. Her half answers and riddles had me screaming "Just
    tell her already!!!" I really think if Lexie was more knowledgeable
    about what was happening to her,she could have been better prepared to
    handle the dangers. But maybe Lexie just needed to see things unfold for
    herself. Either way, this was a really good book and I thoroughly
    enjoyed it. I hope there is a sequel. Team Zeke! =)

    3.5stars actually -- A Great Premise and an exciting new world!

    Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Even after reading the very accurate synopsis, I was unprepared to be so engrossed in such an intense mystery thriller after only a few pages. I really enjoyed being in Lexi Lewis’ point of view and learning what was going on just as she was. While being marketed as a PNR/UF-mystery, I think it should be the other way around because the mystery & suspense elements are so strong, I feel it is more a suspenseful thriller with paranormal elements. I really liked the intricacy of the mystery and the pacing of revealing Lexi’s hidden heritage. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters, their relationships to each other and to Lexi. But for me Lexi was the overall weak link. I didn’t buy her actions. I was perpetually told of the closeness to some characters and the estrangement with others yet the behavior was the exact opposite. That’s either a betrayal of the character or a betrayal of the reader – either way it’s a disconnect and affects the perception of all other actions. (Easier to talk to strangers ok, but IMO it went so far as to marginalize the characters that were supposed to be important to her and elevated the ones that were not. that got old fast.) That is not to say that Lexi did not have some redeeming characteristics such as great fighter instincts, resourcefulness and a willingness to do the unconventional and most of all a strong female. BTW, I loved Zeke, he was my favorite!

    Lexi’s full life opens the door to additional adventures and development of the secondary characters which could be interesting.

    Angel¿s Kiss By Lynne Stevie Review by Linda Hays-Gibbs December

    Angel’s Kiss
    By Lynne Stevie
    Review by Linda Hays-Gibbs
    December 10, 2012

    A young woman, Alexandria Hayes-Lewis is grieving the death of her father and her whole world seems to fall apart. Lexie, the name she is called by friends, runs a detective agency in a beach resort town called Seravan. She is successful and happily married to her handsome husband Alan, until a case turns her life upside down. A horrendous encounter with an attacker and then a worse murder leaves her reeling. Her dreams are suddenly invaded by a handsome demon, whispering erotic things into the night and she can’t seem to find any control to resist him.
    Suddenly, she realizes that she does not know what her life has been about at all. She goes to the only person that knew her family, her grandmother but her grandmother talks in riddles. Her life spirals more out of control and her encounters with otherworldly beings escalates. Lexie is caught between two worlds. The world she knew and the world she never knew existed. Her only salvation is her inner strengths.
    Wooed nightly in her dreams her fantasy world is more erotic and happier than her real existence where she must face the prospect that someone is trying to kill her. She is sent guardians by her grandmother but the only true friend she has is a giant dog. He understands her and protects her as no other can.
    I loved this story and the action packed adventures. I was on my seat trying to figure out what would happen next. I loved how Lexie grew stronger and surer of herself. The sex scenes were hot and the storyline new and exciting. The other characters, her granite stiff grandmother, her new guardian Ben, her sweet brother, and her old friend Ottie were genuine and full fleshed. They all became very dear to me. I loved the new take on vampirism and the dark angels. A dark angel kissed Lexie at birth and he was her grandfather. She is blessed and cursed.
    It was a great story and I give it a four out of five. The only problem I have with this story is the ending. It left me right in the middle of trying to figure out the next step. I was totally marooned and bereft. I do, however, hope there is a sequel and I get to read it. I can’t wait.
