Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a classic tale of romance to warm your heart this holiday season
Gabriel's Angel

Pregnant, alone and on the run to protect her unborn child, Laura Malone found herself stranded on a snowy Colorado road, at the mercy of a stranger. Fortunately, Gabriel Bradley's only intention that fateful night was to provide her shelter.

She was an angel with midnight blue eyes and a shock of blond hair, and Gabe might have thought she had come out of the snowy night to save him -- if he were the kind of man to believe in such things. But ever since he had lost his beloved brother, he had lost hope. Now the only solace Gabe took was in his solitude.

Together they weathered the storm, sharing their intimate secrets and soon powerful passion. By the time the roads had cleared, a promise had been made. For Gabe understood Laura needed protection if she hoped to keep custody of her child through the coming court battle.

For her sake, he was prepared to offer marriage. But his motives weren't nearly so pure. Truthfully, this beautiful, vulnerable stranger had given him an invaluable gift. Life with Laura had given Gabe a reason for being -- courage to hope, and the power to dream that he could have the future and the family he had once dreamed of . . .

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts is "a storyteller of immeasurable diversity and talent," according to Publishers Weekly. She has published over 160 novels, her work has been optioned and made into films, and has been translated into over twenty-five different languages and published all over the world.

In addition to her amazing success in the mainstream, Nora has a large and loyal category romance audience, which took her to their hearts in 1981 with her very first book, Irish Thoroughbred a Silhouette Romance novel.

The last decade has seen over a hundred of Nora's books become New York Times bestsellers -- many of them reaching #1. Nora truly is a publishing phenomenon.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In Nora Roberts's beloved holiday classic, resissued in a special gift edition, two lonely people running from the hurts of the past find each other by chance -- and eventually decide to take a chance on love.

Portrait painter Gabe Bradley has isolated himself in a mountain cabin, trying to recover from the pain of his brother's death. He meets Laura Malone, who is eight months pregnant, when her car nearly skids into him on a snowy, deserted Colorado road. Laura, a well-known model, is on the run, trying to protect her unborn child from her wealthy in-laws, the Eagletons. It was bad enough they tried to cover up the death of her abusive, alcoholic husband, but now they hope to seize custody of the baby. By the time the storm is over, Gabe and Laura have reached a level of understanding and agree to a marriage of protection and need. Their wedding day turns into the baby's birth day, and by the time the Eagletons make their move, both Gabe and Laura are ready to take a stand for the future.

As always, Roberts's characters are tremendously appealing. The progression of their awkward marriage rings true, as does Laura's developing relationship with her new mother-in-law, and Laura and Gabe's experiences as new parents. Ginger Curwen

Meet the Author

Nora Roberts
One of the most prolific and popular writers in the world, Nora Roberts (who also writes as her edgier alter-ego J. D. Robb) publishes multiple books a year. Not that it’s enough for her fans, who tear through her unconventional romances. With her trademark mix of fantasy, mystery, and romance, Roberts has created her own genre -- and romance fans are grateful for it!

Biography

Not only has Nora Roberts written more bestsellers than anyone else in the world (according to Publishers Weekly), she’s also created a hybrid genre of her own: the futuristic detective romance. And that’s on top of mastering every subgenre in the romance pie: the family saga, the historical, the suspense novel. But this most prolific and versatile of authors might never have tapped into her native talent if it hadn't been for one fateful snowstorm.

As her fans well know, in 1979 a blizzard trapped Roberts at home for a week with two bored little kids and a dwindling supply of chocolate. To maintain her sanity, Roberts started scribbling a story -- a romance novel like the Harlequin paperbacks she'd recently begun reading. The resulting manuscript was rejected by Harlequin, but that didn't matter to Roberts. She was hooked on writing. Several rejected manuscripts later, her first book was accepted for publication by Silhouette.

For several years, Roberts wrote category romances for Silhouette -- short books written to the publisher's specifications for length, subject matter and style, and marketed as part of a series of similar books. Roberts has said she never found the form restrictive. "If you write in category, you write knowing there's a framework, there are reader expectations," she explained. "If this doesn't suit you, you shouldn't write it. I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure."

Roberts never violated the reader's expectations, but she did show a gift for bringing something fresh to the romance formula. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred (1981), had as its heroine a strong-willed horse groom, in contrast to the fluttering young nurses and secretaries who populated most romances at the time. But Roberts's books didn't make significant waves until 1985, when she published Playing the Odds, which introduced the MacGregor clan. It was the first bestseller of many.

Roberts soon made a name for herself as a writer of spellbinding multigenerational sagas, creating families like the Scottish MacGregors, the Irish Donovans and the Ukrainian Stanislaskis. She also began working on romantic suspense novels, in which the love story unfolds beneath a looming threat of violence or disaster. She grew so prolific that she outstripped her publishers' ability to print and market Nora Roberts books, so she created an alter ego, J.D. Robb. Under the pseudonym, she began writing romantic detective novels set in the future. By then, millions of readers had discovered what Publishers Weekly called her "immeasurable diversity and talent."

Although the style and substance of her books has grown, Roberts remains loyal to the genre that launched her career. As she says, "The romance novel at its core celebrates that rush of emotions you have when you are falling in love, and it's a lovely thing to relive those feelings through a book."

Good To Know

Roberts still lives in the same Maryland house she occupied when she first started writing -- though her carpenter husband has built on some additions. She and her husband also own Turn the Page Bookstore Café in Boonsboro, Maryland. When Roberts isn't busy writing, she likes to drop by the store, which specializes in Civil War titles as well as autographed copies of her own books.

Roberts sued fellow writer Janet Dailey in 1997, accusing her of plagiarizing numerous passages of her work over a period of years. Dailey paid a settlement and publicly apologized, blaming stress and a psychological disorder for her misconduct.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    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. <BR/><BR/>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. <BR/><BR/>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. <BR/><BR/>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? <BR/><BR/>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.

    Another of her older stories retold.

    I enjoyed this book, as it is one of her pretty good ones from years ago. But this is a republished work, so I'm a bit confused as to why they would reprint it in a hardback format. Nice story, but kind of dated.

    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.

    Another good book by Nora Roberts. She is such a fabulous writer

    Another good book by Nora Roberts. She is such a fabulous writer it never fails to amaze me how with each book I read of hers I always want more. 
    A snow storm, a woman on the run to protect her unborn child and a man trying to find his way back. 
    Gabriel's Angel is a book of growth, courage and the strength to over come life altering sorrow and violence. Gabriel and Laura are two people running from tragedy who don't see they need someone to help them. Both have a hard time seeing what's in front of them and when they do can't seem to ask for it all. I highly recommend this book.
