1)A Temptation of Angels:










Περίληψη από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου:




Even angels make mistakes in this page-turning epic romance
When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world's past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.




2)Prophecy of the Sisters: Whisper of Souls (Book 0):










Περίληψη από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου:




Before Prophecy of the Sisters, before Alice and Lia became pawns in the curse that turned sister against sister, the burden of the prophecy belonged to their mother, Adelaide. This is her story. Adelaide Milthorpe is losing her grip on sanity. She is a Gate - a human portal to the Otherworlds, destined to bring forth Samael, the most powerful demon of all time, and his Lost Souls. Prowling the halls of Birchwood Manor, Adelaide is haunted by the whispers of the otherworldly Souls, who seek to use her for entry into the real world, where they would wreak havoc and rule beside their leader, Samael, in chaos. Their pleas plague her, torture her, tempt her. Samael calls to her, his promise of peace in the Otherworlds increasingly difficult to resist. And the stakes are high, for if Adelaide gives in to his urgings, her two daughters will inherit the same curse, forcing them to make the same impossible choice as they, too, are cast in the roles of Guardian and Gate. In this novella that delves further into the Prophecy, Adelaide's struggle to reconcile her two worlds as she descends into madness will captivate fans of the Prophecy of the Sisters series and new readers alike.

She sits every hour and wills her spirit to travel to the Otherworlds, where the Souls welcome her, where the demon Samael gives her companionship. If she could only persuade Lia to open the Gate and let him into the mortal realm, she would be happy. But she is not in the Otherworlds. She is here, on earth, in Birchwood, chained by a prophecy she would undo and a body she must care for. When she encounters James, her sister's fiancé, his kindness and understanding are the first human touch to reach her in month.




4) Prophecy of the Sisters: Rise of Souls (Book 6):










Περίληψη από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου:




The third of three haunting novella spin-offs to Prophecy of the Sisters to be published as e-books. The Gate to the mortal world is finally closed. Lia Milthorpe has settled with her husband on Altus, the land that bridges the gap between the Otherworlds and the physical one. Samael's banishment has brought prosperity to the land, and no one is happier than Una Whelan. For the first time in centuries, those who live on the island--including Una and her suitor, Fenris--can do so in peace. Or so they thought. This novella reveals what happens to Lia, Dimitri, and Altus after Circle of Fire , the final book in the Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy. If you thought there was a happy ending, think again.




5) Shadowguard Series: Temptation's Heat (Book 1):










Περίληψη από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου:




Cora Carmack, NY Times and USA Today best selling author of Losing It says, "Before reading TEMPTATION'S HEAT, I wouldn't have thought it possible to create a paranormal romance with great characterization, interesting relationships, and strong world-building in only seventy pages. I'm happy to say Michelle Zink definitely proved me wrong! Scarlet was the ultimate kick-ass heroine. Rowen Black was nothing short of sinful, and I am so relieved that the Shadowguard world is continuing as a series. To put it simply: Worth. Every. Penny." When Rowen Black is assigned to the elite unit of angelic assassins known as the Shadowguard, he thinks his biggest challenge will be overcoming his less-than-stellar reputation. But that’s before he meets his match in Scarlet Montgomery. Beautiful, strong, and with a temper to match Rowen’s own, Scarlet is determined to focus on the Shadowguard and her future as its possible leader. She’s become an expert at keeping what little personal life she has separate from the Guard, all too aware that her position as the boss’s daughter makes it tempting for her fellow warriors to see her not as someone to be respected, but as someone to be protected. But keeping her distance gets a lot harder when Rowen saunters into the room. Tall, built and exuding menace, Rowen puts the "bad" in bad boy. Their connection is hot, visceral, and instantaneous. And that is so not in Scarlet’s plan. When the pair are assigned to a joint investigation, they come face-to-face with their undeniable attraction, forcing Scarlet to consider that the connection is not only physical, but a destiny written in the halls of time. TEMPTATION'S HEAT is the first adult paranormal romance title from Michelle Zink, and is recommended for audiences 18+.

One of the Shadowguard’s fiercest warriors, Kane has a soft spot for Lily. A long-standing member of the Shadowguard, he can’t figure out when his feelings for Ambrose Montgomery’s youngest daughter morphed from brotherly affection into desire and an unfamiliar longing that feels a lot like love.  Kane holds himself in check knowing that Lily deserves better. A man in a suit, dinner at six every night, rosy-cheeked children who won’t have to worry that their father might be killed by one of the Legion’s wraiths.  But when the pair are thrown together by a set of circumstances beyond their control, they are forced to confront their growing passion and decide if love is worth the risk of baring it all.
