Paranormal Romance
Miami's best bounty hunter, Nikita Tesoro will do anything to collar a fugitive. Including stepping into a stripper's stilettos for the night. Outsmarting her rival Kyle Beaudecker is just a bonus. Despite the sexual tension sparking between them, Nikita keeps a professional distance from "Hurricane" Kyle. After all, she can't get hurt if she doesn't care.

A descendant of the archangel Barakiel with the power to harness electricity, Kyle should be focusing his energy on tracking down a demon that may be hiding in the human realm. But he's a lover, not a fighter, and he'd much rather use his special talents for pleasure: specifically Nikita's. And teaming up to find a bail jumper means spending lots of time together…

But when their case takes a turn for the demonic, Kyle can no longer hide his true nature from Nikita. He'll do whatever it takes to win her heart—even stop the apocalypse. But he can't do it alone.





Hi Stacy! Thanks for coming back to Talk Supe to talk about Earth Angels. I'm intrigued by your angel series. Tell me, is Earth Angels PNR/UF and what is the series about?


Stacy Gail: Before I begin, I want to thank you, Braine, for allowing me to pop onto your blog. :) All authors everywhere would be freaking lost without dedicated bloggers like you! <3

Awww shucks! We try...

Stacy Gail: Okay, now to answer… The Earth Angels is a 4-part miniseries spotlighting Nephilim, the 21st-century descendants of the original human-angel hybrids. They’ve still got minute remnants of angelic DNA to contend with while trying to lead normal human lives, and it’s not easy. Not only are some Nephilim so powerful their own abilities threaten to destroy their mostly almost-bodies, but now they’re on a head-on collision course with a demonic apocalypse that only they can see coming.


Oooh Nephilims! They're a dangerous bunch, and sexy too! What are these Nephilim like and how are they similar/different to the archetype?

Stacy Gail: First off, none of them see themselves as angels and that’s a BIG difference. Each one identifies with being human, and they’re proud to be so. Thousands of years have come and gone since their angelic progenitors had sexytimes with human women, with countless generations diluting their DNA. It’s their humanity—and their determination to be as human as everyone else—that sets them apart.


Is there one main character for the series or does it feature a different person with every book that comes out?

Stacy Gail: For this particular series, The Earth Angels, each book highlights a different member of the Nephilim. Not saying anything about future Nephilim projects, though… :P


DANGEROUS ANGEL is book 4 in the series. What else can you share with us about it?

Stacy Gail: For the most part, I tried to make it so the first three books could almost be considered “standalones”, with storylines and love interests consolidated to that particular book. However, there’s a distinct demonic presence that shows up in all the books. At first it seems innocuous—nothing more than a whisper of evil. With each story, however, that evil builds in savagery and malevolence until DANGEROUS ANGEL, which is the final showdown between the 21st-century Nephilim and an infamous Great Duke of hell, Dantalion.


I read "sexual tension" in DANGEROUS ANGEL's blurb. In terms of heat level, how hot does it get not just with this particular book but with the series overall? (Can you share a super short sexy teaser?)

Stacy Gail: *laughs* I’m always surprised at how often my editors swear they’re having to fan themselves after reading one of my sex scenes! I don’t write erotica, but whatever exists under that—that’s probably where I am. I like details in sex scenes, both as a writer and as a reader. Sensations, sights, scents, sounds, tastes… I want it all. Hopefully this skinny-dipping setup scene for Nikita’s and Kyle’s first time shows that:


DANGEROUS ANGEL, is electrifying in both action and passion. 
Don't miss it!

“Is there a problem I need to know about?” Nikita tiptoed along the rocky bottom, while the urge to go toward him pushed at her in the same way the current swept her body along. “I wasn’t expecting you tonight.”
“You weren’t? Somehow that surprises me.”
She could just make out a subtle kicking motion from him. There went his shoes. “So? Is there a problem?”
“Not that I’d like to discuss right now.”
The pale shirt he wore moved up and over his head. The inner heat that had plagued her all night now threatened to make the water simmer around her. “You’re not here because of the case?”
His hand went to the fastening of his shorts. She only wished she had a few bills to flash for this private striptease. “No.”
“Oh.” Kyle’s tanned flesh, darker than the last of the clothes he tossed toward her towel, was impossible to see with any detail. But as he headed toward the water her mind filled in the blanks with devastating ease. The lustful pulse between her thighs grew to a sweet ache. “Then why are you here?”
“You know why, Nikita.”
Of course she knew. Just as she knew the unlabeled restlessness that had been tearing her apart had actually been impatience at having to wait for his arrival. Now that he was here, there was nothing left but an almost giddy anticipation. This moment had been a long time in coming—from the first moment she’d crossed paths with him so many years ago—and there was no escaping it now. She didn’t want to. She’d never been good at denying her earthier impulses, yet she’d always done so when it came to Kyle. It was as though part of her knew that sex with Kyle wouldn’t be satisfying a fleeting biological urge, but rather a life-altering experience she’d want again and again. 
Wanting was fine. She just didn’t know how to make sure it stopped there. 
Something flinched inside of her, a raw nerve that curled in on itself for protection. No, her desire could never be allowed to go beyond wanting. But living for this moment… That was all right. That was something she could do. And to hell with the rest of it.
As he closed the distance separating them, she could see him more clearly. The shark tooth hanging from his neck rested against a chest she’d explored countless times in her fantasies, complimented by his rib cage shadowed with muscle. His pectorals and deltoids were surprisingly well developed for such a leanly built man. Those sculpted ridges and curves drew her attention like magnets, her lips tingling in a hungry need to taste him there. A dark blond line of hair arrowed downward to his fully aroused sex, its crown dark and ready in the moonlight. But before she could inspect him further he dived, submerging completely.





Whew! *fans self*

Nikita Tesoro and Kyle Beaudecker, what is it about their story that will grip us readers?

Stacy Gail: I’m hopeful that the humor and chemistry between these two characters makes you laugh out loud. I’m not going to lie—this is a pretty heavy book, filled with bone-breaking tension as the world trembles on the edge of a demonic apocalypse. So it was my hope that their snort-worthy banter would shine all the more brightly against this ominous background.


I love villains and I guess the obvious enemies of angels are demons and such. What kinds of creatures are we going to meet in Earth Angels?

Stacy Gail: OMG, ONLY THE COOLEST DEMON EVVARRRRR. *muppet flails* 

Oops, sorry. :D I wish I could say I made up the Great Duke of hell, Dantalion, but I didn’t. This guy is AMAZING. He’s the Ultimate Big Bad, and his myth has been around since the biblical time of King Solomon. Dantalion is called the demon of a thousand faces, because he can shapeshift to appear as anyone—male or female, child or adult. But that overt ability hides far more dangerous talents. For starters, he’s a telepath. He can read any human being on the planet and discover their greatest trauma, fear or pain. Also, he has the ability to control minds, and at full power he can force madness into the minds of every human on the planet. As Kyle explains to Nikita:
“If Dantalion reaches full strength…things will get bad.”
Right. And the sun was a bit warm. “How bad?”
“This isn’t a lower flight of demon we’re dealing with here, Nikita.”
“In my world, flights are things you take out of airports. Dumb it down for me.”
“Dantalion is a Great Duke of Hell. If he gains full power, he’ll control the minds of all humans everywhere. That doesn’t sound bad at first, but since it’s speculated that Emperor Nero—the guy who fiddled while Rome burned—was one of Dantalion’s victims, it puts everything into perspective. This demon can push any thought imaginable into the minds of the world’s population. He could make people believe that a steady diet of human flesh is the only way to go. Or that friends and neighbors need to have their hair trimmed with chainsaws. Or that the Miami Dolphins are going to win this year’s Super Bowl. No one will escape the madness.”
Oooh I want to meet this mofo! Nero is one sick bastard and if Dantalion is behind that morbid madness, shiz I'm in!

Stacy Gail: With DANGEROUS ANGEL’s release, I’m officially done with the Dantalion tale. But am I done with the Nephilim? Probably not, since I left one of the Nephilim without anyone to love. *lonely angel-human hybrid is lonely*


What a tease! In Twitter fashion, why should we read DANGEROUS ANGEL? 

Stacy Gail: The edge-of-your-seat conclusion to The Earth Angels, 

…..*laughs* Omigod. That’s so lame. *dies*

It's all right, trust me I've read worse! Thanks for the fun chat, Stacy!



A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By the age of fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

  3. This sounds like a great series, I've seen it on NetGalley but now I'm tempted to get the first book...I love the concept of Nephilim..it's one that hasn't been overdone in this genre.

  25. Why do I have to only choose one paranormal being? I love vampires, because they can seem so alien and different from us, with knowledge spanning over hundreds of years, they can have a certain sophistication I love.
    But shifters are really cool, too, I mean, they can change into an animal, hunt, and be pretty savage, but at the same time, they have a very strong moral code, and since most of them live in packs, they are very protective - and that is something else I love.
    There have been angels I have totally loved, too, but there are others who do nothing for me. A good story with an angel who is well rounded will be able to grab both my attention and my emotions, though.
    Also, because I love trying stories that are a little different from my usual go-to genre, I will try anything!

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway, and for introducing me to Dangerous Angel :)
