Overview

In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.

They are The Fallen...

Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect humans. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium—the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth—but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of humankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all...for love of an angel.

Editorial Reviews

Kris @ Bitten by Paranormal Romance
"I loved this story. It moved quickly, and I was excited to see what was going to happen next. I loved the premise of fallen angels trying to save the world...I loved the hero, Michael. He was strong, courageous, very honorable and based on the cover, smoking hot!...Great dialogue, perfect amount of time dedicated to details, and great teaser introductions to the other angels. I loved the world she built and can't wait to read all of the stories in the series!"

-- Bitten by Paranormal
Lily @ Romance Junkies
"Author Rosalie Lario has masterfully built a world unlike any I’ve ever seen in FOR LOVE OF AN ANGEL. The first book in THE FALLEN WARRIORS series is filled with passion, excitement, danger and most importantly, love. I was entranced by FOR LOVE OF AN ANGEL from the very first page."

-- Romance Junkies
Julianne @Examiner.com
"The love between Eva and Michael will be tempting enough even for Paranormal Romance fans, while the heat these two generate together will please readers who prefer steamier stories. For Love of An Angel makes for a very well done, compelling, and interesting read."

--Examiner.com
Laura @Kick Back & Review
"Whoever thought that men with wings on their back couldn't be considered sexy, needs to read this story. Because, seriously, Michael could best be described with one word: "yuuuuummmmy"."

Meet the Author

Rosalie Lario is the award-winning, paranormal romance author of the Demons of Infernum and the Fallen Warriors series. Rosalie double majored in Anthropology and Classics as an undergraduate student, and briefly considered becoming an archaeologist before realizing they don’t actually live the life of Indiana Jones. So what was a classical geek armed with a lot of useless knowledge to do? Become a lawyer, of course!After attending law school in Florida, she practiced real estate law for several years before finally admitting to herself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. She never imagined all the mythology she’d learned throughout her undergraduate education might actually come in handy, but it makes perfect fodder for the paranormal romance stories she now dreams up.When not writing, you can find her on a boat somewhere along South Florida’s waterways, chasing down a rainbow or pretending to be a pirate.Comments or questions?

    I love this world that Rosalie has created!

    My Review:
    I really like the world that Rosalie Lario has established in this first novel. In this novella, the world has changed. Suddenly the "veil" that separated angels and humans has dropped. No one really knows why the veil dropped, but the angels are now in charge. They have taken away the world as we know it...housing and jobs are assigned; there is no such thing as money any longer; there are curfews; humans are basically being used as slave labor. What humans don't realize is that their time on earth is a limited thing if the angels get their way. There are a group of twelve angels called the "Fallen" who have taken it upon themselves to try to save humankind, but that means that they are being hunted. For angels to maintain their strength though, they need to mate with others who carry human blood. Within the twelve warriors that make up the Fallen, there are only two female angels so the Fallen are in search of nephilim, human/angel half-breeds, to mate with so that they can maintain their species.

    This book is about Eva & Michael. Eva is a barista who is feeling dissatisfied with her life. She has an annoying neighbor whom she used to date. She feels like there should be more to her life, but isn't what sure what that would be. Then one night, she leaves her window open and in comes Michael who was "drawn by her essence." Unbeknownst to Eva, her father was an angel so she is a nephilim.

    This first book had a lot of really fabulous elements to it that make me really excited for this new series. I really loved this romance between Michael & Eva. There is definitely a chemical reaction between the two of them, but I love that their feelings are allowed to develop before they really react to that. I loved the Fallen and their reactions to Eva...they all feel the draw of her nephilim blood before she is mated to Michael. Their home in the cave was amazing. It makes an amazingly gorgeous backdrop for this series. The visuals that I had in my head for it were just beautiful. I love how Rosalie described it! The short introductions to the Fallen that we got in this first story have made me really excited to see where the series goes from here. I am assuming that all twelve of the Fallen will get their stories and I cannot wait!!

    Detailed with witty dialogue!

    Review by Shyla:

    You may think you know about angels, but you have no idea. Ms. Rosalie has created a world of angels unlike any I've ever read, and I loved every second of it! The winged ones are anything but friendly when the veil between there world and ours breaks. They take over the earth, and life as we knew it ceased to exist. They build their high towers, and use their security team to enforce their rules. Human is life is left up to chance with a lottery dictating your career path, and your home. The tension in the air is tangible, and the atmosphere has like a powder keg waiting to explode, and our heroine Eva is stuck smack dab in the middle. Eva has her own doubts about the way things are run, but with no family and no options there's nothing she can do.

    When our hero Michael shows up in her apartment one stormy night her life is turned completely upside down. He's nothing like she thought they would be. Angels aren't supposed to be humorous, kind or attracted to humans. She's terrified of the angel at first. Michael is what her Mother would call,' Sex on a stick', and the attraction between them is too easy to lose herself in. When someone see's the fallen angel at her house she's thrust headlong into a war she had never knew existed.

    Rosalie has a talent for sculpting, shaping and molding her environment. Her take was fresh , and I loved the mix of intrigue, and passion. Her skill for details and witty dialogue delivered a sense of realism that solidifies the myth and mayhem that surrounds the romance. She took her time building up the relationship, exposing their flows and making us fall in love with Eva and Michael. Once I started this book I was unable to put it down, and I recommend it to anyone whose looking for a romance with real substance. I've got my eyes open for the next in this series, Ms. Rosalie, keep up the excellent work.

    Who said angels can't be sexy?

    In a previous review, I stated that the paranormal genre is my favorite genre. Despite that, I haven't read many novels that feature angels as the paranormal aspect in the book so I really wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Let me begin by saying this: quite simply - I adored this book! I'm so happy that it is a series because I cannot wait for the next one.

    When angels took over the world a lot of things changed drastically and even though the angels are rarely actually seen, the world worships them. Now they answer to the Consortium and there are rules in place that never existed before. Eva was only thirteen when the veil fell, but she remembers life before the angels and wonders if everything is truly as it seems. Sometimes Eva feels like she was meant for something more. Or at least wishes she had the opportunity.

    Then she meets Michael. Michael shows her that, indeed, things really aren't as they seem and tells her things that could mean a death sentence if she believes him.

    Whoever thought that men with wings on their back couldn't be considered sexy, needs to read this story. Because, seriously, Michael could best be described with one word: "yuuuuummmmy". Yep, I think that pretty much covers it all. "Wow" might actually work too. Or maybe "drool". And I loved Eva. She is a sassy, spirited little thing and her internal thoughts are so realistic and hilarious.

    The book is very well written and the pace is realistic. One thing that drives me crazy with novellas and shorts sometimes is when the pace goes at warp speed and nothing seems like it could realistically happen at that pace. Ms. Lario manages to convey a sense of time passing, without taking up too much space to do it, and keeps the story moving forward while still making it all believable. And the sexual tension between Eva and Michael is smoldering.

    The background given for the angels is very interesting and I can't wait to learn more and see how it all plays out in future sequels. There is black and white (literally) and shades of gray. It's a very interesting take on good versus evil and reality versus pre-conceptions. Despite the fact that this is about angels, there isn't really much (if any) religion in the story so don't let that put you off, if that's something that would sway you one way or the other.

    If you enjoy paranormal romance, this is not one that you want to miss. You won't regret it and at $.99 you can't go wrong. It is a quick, entertaining read that will leave you looking forward to the sequels.

    Reading Soft porn

    The story idea seemed really good. Plus it had great reviews. I only gave it one star because there were so many sex scenes described in great detail that it turned me off. If I wanted to read a soft porn I would have gotten a harlequin book instead. So if you do not want to read about detailed sex scenes, this is not the book for you.
