Margay Leah Justice's Nora's Soul

It's the day before Valentine's Day--which means all those guys will be out shopping tonight. Why do they procrastinate anyway?

This featured romance novel is by Margay Leah Justice. It sounds fascinating! Two people in peril, fate, and a couple of angels interwoven together. How could you pass this one up? Here's more about Nora's Soul

When angels of light and dark collide on earth…

Once he held a favored position in the heavens. But one moment of weakness casts Dante out and now he is cursed to walk the earth, collecting the souls of vulnerable women to buy his way into hell.

All hell breaks loose…

But standing in his way is Peter, an angel of light. Peter is everything Dante is not. Pure, above reproach. And determined to prevent Dante from achieving his goals. Peter will stop at nothing to protect the souls in his charge, even if it means achieving the impossible – leading Dante back onto the right path.

And no one is safe from the fall-out.

Nora Kendall believed in angels. Once. But then she lost her brother to cancer despite all of her prayers – and she lost her faith in all things angelic. Now, she is a lost soul who wanders through life like a sleepwalker, playing it safe and leaving the risk-taking to others.

Kyle Cameron is one of those risks. Burned by a bad marriage, his only concern now is providing a stable life for his children, who are left motherless by the unexpected death of his wife. This means working overtime to grow his architectural firm into a viable business – and leaving the care of his children to the care of someone he trusts. Despite his past connection with Nora, Kyle isn’t certain that she’s the right person for the job. He also doesn’t want to reconnect with her and repeat history.

But fate – and the machinations of two angels – has other ideas.

Margay talks about the romance factor in Nora's Soul:

Although Nora’s Soul deals with the issues of loss and faith, at its core, it is a story of love. Rediscovered love, to be precise. Nora Kendall and Kyle Cameron share more than their bond with his sister, Joelle. When Nora was still a teenager, they shared one night of bliss before he went off to college and all but forgot her and she began the transformation into the frigid woman she is at the start of the book. Despite their connection to his sister, they rarely see each other in the interim. But when circumstances require that they spend a good deal of time together, they are hard put to deny the attraction they feel for one another.

So the story becomes an intricate dance between the two, reminiscent of the tango. They get close, sparks fly. Tempers flare and they pull back. Each one challenges the other’s current stance on life and love until they ultimately come together. The romance in Nora’s Soul is embedded in this dance and the discovery that, although a previous partner has burned them, they are still capable of loving other people, namely each other.

I just read this book and it was fantastic. Margay took the elemental struggle between good and evil, tossed in a real-life romance and came up with a winner.

Cheryl said...

I understand your pain too Moira. I keep saying I won't take on too many more books, but then I read about another great one and ask to review that one too. Oh well, such is the life of a book reviewer.

I was glad to host you Margay. Come back anytime.
