Story Overview:
In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.

They are The Fallen.

Fallen angel Ethan has been outcast due to his love of humankind. In order to preserve his immortality, he must find a mate with angel blood…but the one woman he desires blames him for her father’s death. As a teenager, Tayla had a fierce crush on Ethan, her angel father’s best friend. She was humiliated when he rejected her, claiming she was too young for him. Her love turned to hate when he failed to save her father from being killed by the other angels.

Battle looms on the horizon, and Ethan can no longer afford to waste time. He must claim Tayla as his…but convincing her she’s his mate won’t be so easy.

Angel's Desire, a 32,000 word paranormal romance, is Book 2 in The Fallen Warriors Series.

My Review:
I really like this series! In this book, we get to meet Tayla. She is another nephilim who actually knew her angel father, until he died when she was 16 years old. Ethan was his best friend and was with him when he died and Tayla has always blamed Ethan for not saving him. At 16, she had a huge crush on Ethan and he felt the same draw to her, but she was too young for him, so he stayed away. Now it's 10 years later and Ethan is ready to move on Tayla and make her his mate. He just has to gain her trust again after his abandonment of her on top of her father's death.

This book took a step further into this fabulous world that Rosalie Lario has created. See the review for Book #1, For Love of an Angel, for more about the basics of the world. I really liked both Ethan & Tayla, although I don't understand why either of them was so stubborn about letting the other know their feelings (although without that, it probably wouldn't have been much of a story...hehe.) Things are ramping up as far as the overall story arc and I think that it's going to be fun to watch the story evolve. This book had a bit more action than the first and I think that is also going to increase throughout the series, as the showdown between the angels gets closer. I also really loved that we got to see a good bit of Eva in this book (heroine from book #1.) 

These books are short reads...about a third of the size of a normal novel, but they don't seem to be lacking at all. The stories are fabulous, the characters well-developed, and the romance is sizzling. The world that Rosalie has created is amazing. I am still in love with the cave where they all live. I want to go live there. Of course, the fact that there are 10 super-sexy male angels (the other 2 are female) that wander around all the time shirtless (shirts get in the way of their wings when they need them suddenly) makes the cave dwelling pretty alluring too. There are twelve Fallen angels (10 males, 2 females) and I am assuming that we will get to see all their HEA's. It's going to be a fun series.

Another great review. This will be interesting...a novella series. It seems with Gena Showalters series the books keep getting bigger due to the fact that there are so many characters and so many events. It will be intersting to see if this series eventually becomes one with full-length novels. I'm glad you're enjoying the series so far and I hope since they are so short they will come out faster and faster. :-D
