Heaven refers to them as Misplaced Halos.
Humans don't even know they exist.
This faction of celestial warriors was sent here under the cover of darkness to protect humanity from Lucifer's demons. In return for their servitude, these warriors expect only one thing: the love they were promised, what angels refer to as an amsouelot.

Never one to rely on luck or favor, Eclipse isn't surprised when his first interaction with the female whose soul is destined for his results in death. However, he is caught off-guard when the pretty blond who had been held at gun point by a two-bit human turns out to be sassy and fearless and not at all bothered by the mess that was made in that alley.

Orianna McKay has spent the past six years scouring the U.S. in search of her sister. She has put her entire life on hold hoping to locate Amber and bring her home to their mother. What she doesn't understand is how one failed lead after another continues to take her right back to nowhere, Colorado. Then he appears. The handsome warrior who takes a bullet in an effort to save her. What she doesn't realize is that warrior is an angel and nothing in her world is as it seems.

Eclipse's mission is to protect Orianna from the demons who are out to lay claim to her soul. Somewhere along the way, that mission changes, priorities are shifted, and destinies are revealed. By the time the dust settles, Orianna and Eclipse will learn that salvation comes in many forms.

I was a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this story as I admit that paranormal stories are not one of my go to genres to read. Eclipse is an angel but is known as a Misplaced Halo. They are not allowed to become involved with humans unless it is their soulmate, known as their amsouelot. They protect humans from Lucifer’s demons. Eclipse’s soulmate is Orianna McKay; a woman who is a sassy, feisty, brave and determined woman. She has spent the last six years searching for her sister Amber, determined to bring her home. When Eclipse takes a bullet that was meant for her, Orianna feels the strength of the connection that sizzles between them. As expected with a Nicole Edwards story, there was plenty of heat and the intense chemistry between them was scorching. There were times that I struggled a little with the terminology/names used but once I got my head around it I I was drawn into the story that Ms.Edwards wove. There was so much going on in this story, you really need to experience it for yourself. If you are a fan of paranormal romance then this book will be right up your alley. Salvation in Darkness is a well written love story about true soul mates that just happens to revolve around Angels, Demons and now the Fae and Vampires.

If you read and loved the First book, Protected in Darkness, you are absolutely going to love this second book in the series. Salvation in Darkness had me so enthralled, I was having a hard time to stop reading. Notice my play on words? We now have vampires in the story along with our angels and demons. But I’m getting ahead of myself. The story’s main couple is Eclipse and Orianna. I really enjoyed their story, there was so much she had to work through in her human life. Their connection was breathtaking. But there is so much more to the story. A Fae being kidnapped, a baby being born, a demon’s demise, a sister finally found, a vampire realizing his mate, Michael the Archangel, action, adventure, laughter, tears, romance and of course let’s not forget all of the scorching hot sex scenes. And the epilogue, Oh Emm Gee!!! I am absolutely in love with this new series. I can’t wait to read the next book whoever it will be about. I’m always sitting at the edge of my seat when the drama unfolds. When Nicole asked for volunteers to read and review, I gladly accepted. I voluntarily read and I am leaving an honest review, all my own opinion. But please give this series a try.

This is one of those books that I would get upset every time I had to put it down. Unfortunately, I have been super busy so had to put it down far too often. Then all I would think of, as I was doing what needed my attention in the real world, was getting back to my book! I felt as though there were a lot more storylines going on in this one than in the first book. Of course, the main story is still about Orianna and Eclipse. But we get so many other subplots that have me so excited for the coming stories in this series. Eclipse is amazing. But, then again, so is Orianna. Both just do what needs being done. Which is saying a lot when it comes to Orianna. That lady has gumption. No familial support, no friends to lean on, no money to back her up, yet she keeps on slogging away looking for her sister. Eclipse, on the other hand, has a house full of family and friends, all of whom would do anything for him. There is no doubt that Orianna and Eclipse are meant for each other. They fit together perfectly. They understand each other almost the moment they connect. There is some “getting to know you” that needs to be done, but on a deeper level there’s no need. There’s just an understanding. While I loved the story of Eclipse and Orianna, I actually liked some of the other love stories just as much if not more. Kaj and Acadia, Bijou and Oliver (Oh, the things I’m looking forward to with those two!!!), Asmia’s storyline. So much yummy goodness! This band of angels, fae, heurosp, vampires, and humans is such a marvelous intermingling of personalities. All that come together to make up the most remarkable support system for them all. I realize I have not said much about the story itself, and that’s by design. I hate spoilers and feel as if I say too much I’ll be ruining parts of this story for others. Just know that I loved this book and can’t wait to read more about this family. **I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the author.

I can’t get enough of this series. I thought the first book, Misplaced Halos, was great, but this book just topped it. This story sucks you in and you can’t put it down. The main story is about Eclipse and Orianna, but we also get other side stories with lots of other characters. Don’t worry, you won’t get confused. The author does a great job of separating the stories and the characters that you will be able to keep up. Eclipse and Orianna are amazing. I love how strong Orianna is and how Eclipse embraces her strength. There is no doubt that they are soul mates and I loved every second of them getting to know each other. Their journey together is truly magical and I love how they make each other stronger. I can’t say enough good things about this book. I know I really haven’t said much about the storyline, but that is because I don't want risk giving any spoilers. This book is one you have to dive into for yourself and experience the magic of angels, faes, vampires and demons. I promise that you will not be disappointed and will be anxiously awaiting the next release in this series just like I am.

4.5 Stars for Salvation in Darkness book 2 in the Misplaced Halos Series. Eclipse is an Angel put on earth to protect humans and he is better know as a Misplaced Halo who are here to protect the human race from Lucifer’s demons but they are only allowed to become involved with humans if their chosen partner is their soulmate...... Orianna McKay is a strong, sassy woman who knows what she wants and she has spent the last few years searching for her sister Amber what she isn’t looking for is a soulmate but when Eclipse takes a bullet meant for her she realises there could be something very special between them....... Characters with sizzling chemistry and plenty of scorching hot scenes add to the dynamics of this paranormal romance, this is a genre I don’t read very much so I have to say I was grateful for the terminology /names listed at the start of this book. As you would expect from this very talented author this is a well written love story that will captivate you from the first few pages, it’s a love story about finding your soulmate and I believe it will appeal to all romance lovers as well as paranormal romance lovers. Looking forward to more in this series

Angels, Vampires, Fey and Demons, and you will not be able to put it down until the last word I have been waiting with baited breath for this book to come out and it was so fantastic and exciting that I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. This book picks up where Protected in Darkness ends. There are seven celestial warriors, angels, in Darkness, Colorado, who think of themselves as brothers. In the first book we met Obsidian and his soulmate Penelope, learned who the warriors were and how they are on earth to protect the humans. In this book we get to know Eclipse and his soulmate or amsouelot as the angels refer to them, Orianna. We also meet and get to know Kaj, a Vampire who helps the brothers, spend time with the Fey, and then learn more about a whole bunch of Lucifer’s followers, each one more miserable than the last. Orianna is looking for her missing sister, Amber, to reunite her with their Mom who is in poor health and keeps asking Orianna to find her. Her search brings her to Darkness, Colorado where a dangerous encounter has Obsidian rescuing her and what she doesn’t know, is that he is her destiny. Obsidian and Penelope’s story continues, Eclipse and Orianna’s story evolves and sets the stage with what is to come next and the Archangel Michael’s story evolves too and now I want to know more about him, and Kaj, and the Fey and oh yeah, pretty much everyone in the book because like I said in the beginning, this book is fantastic. Nicole is an amazing author and this new series is a must read.

5 Celestial Stars!!!! Holy sexy battle angels!! I am absolutely LOVING this series so far!! I was hooked from the very first chapter of Book 1 and I don't see any relief in sight! Nor do I want to!! I have loved everything this author writes and the fact that she has now given me an amazing new paranormal series to immerse myself in, I mean I am in Heaven! Literally sometimes. What a world Nicole has created full of sexy alpha angels and vampires and so much more to fall in love with. It's sexy, intriguing and oh so steamy!! I love Eclipse and Orianna together in every single way. They are perfectly matched as they should be since they are true soul mates. They wreaked some serious hot and sexy havoc in that house though. I loved getting more of Obsidian and Penelope and all the other characters as well. That epilogue tells me there is more amazingness to come!! I love the whole concept of this series it is so freakin' cool! I didn't want this book to end! I cannot wait for more!!

4.5 STARS I really am loving the direction this series is going in. I found the start a little slow but once I got a few chapters in I became hooked. I loved the main couple Eclipse and Orianna, they're a great paring and had fantastic chemistry. Her back story and journey were interesting and showed her strength of character. I loved all the other story threads running alongside their own. Bijou and Oliver are a really interesting pair and I enjoyed their budding friendship. Michael I'm really loving, he holds so much power and I love how he keeps changing the game. His love for Obsidian really shines through in every move that he makes. I wish the Asmia storyline had abit more to it but I'm really hoping the next book moves that storyline along. It's a great continuation of this story and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one.

Misplaced Halos - Eclipse and Orianna It’s been 6 years since her older sister took off and disappeared. Orianna has been traveling, searching every lead she’s gotten for her sister and still nothing......until she meets him....the stranger who appeared out of nowhere...... Eclipse, one of the Misplaced Halos, has been following Orianna, keeping her safe from the demons, from hell, out there to collect her soul. His first encounter with Orianna is when he saves her life in an alley by taking a bullet for her. After that night in the alley, Orianna doesn’t realize how much her life is about to change....... There is no such things as demons and angels, right? This is book 2 in the series. This is a new genre for Nicole and she really does have another amazing series underway. I honestly don’t know how she comes up with these fantastic ideas, but I hope she keeps them coming for a long time. So far, the edge of your seat suspense in this series is refreshing. If you think you know what is coming next, hmmmm, don’t be so sure. I’ve come to love the unexpected twists Nicole throws into the storyline when you least expect them. I can’t wait for the next book already. This will be a series I will be reading over and over again.

Salvation in Darkness is the second book in the Misplaced Halos series written by Nicole Edwards. I absolutely loved the first book and this book is even better. This series centers around a group of seven angels (and their entourage of fairies, fae & vampires) whose mission is to keep humans safe from demons. The demons manage to steel a list of the angels’ soul mates (amsoulets) from the Fates. Each angel must find his soul mate to protect both their souls from being taken by Lucifer. This story centers around the angel Eclipse and his soul mate Orianna. For the past several years Orianna’s mission has been to find her lost sister and bring her home to their Mother. During this search Orianna is attacked. In order to protect Orianna, Eclipse kills her attacker and then disappears as he believes that Orianna was frighten of him and could never love a killer. Orianna also has issues including feelings of abandonment and not being loved. Eclipse and Orianna must find a way to overcome these issues and find her lost sister so that their relationship can evolve. This novel is action packed; full of secondary relationships, between the humans, angels, vampires, demons and fae. The romances between the secondary characters is equally compelling. There is a kidnaping, angst, plenty of danger and suspense and love. The sex scenes are scorching hot. There are a lot of plot twists and surprises to keep the reader enthralled. I love this series and can’t wait for the next volume. I know that I will want to binge read the entire series once it is complete. I received an ARC for an honest review.
