Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)

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. 
Why I liked it: 

I will admit, I was nervous about reading this book - not because I thought I would not like it, but because I had a feeling I would love it. And maybe, since it was coming out with mine, I would feel...IDK...weird about it. But, you know what, my fears were unfounded. Yes, I LOVED this book! REALLY LOVED IT. In fact, I felt like it was the best one of Zink's books yet. And yes, it is an angel story. And a romance. But that is where the similarities end.
Zink's story is a beautifully crafted historical tale that tackles themes I can really relate to - love, betrayal, temptation. Her writing is stunning and you will find yourself caring about all of the characters within the first few pages. She flawless marries her literary style of writing with the historical aspects of her setting, making this a MUST-READ.

Yes, Michelle Zink has done it again, and hit gold. OH! And check this out the trailer (and the music is by Kenneth Zink AND AMAZING!):

 I am giving away a copy of A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS as part of the epic grand prize giveaway, along with LACRIMOSA and DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. WOOT!

    It's Release Day!

    Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

    This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

    Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

    OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

    Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

    Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

    Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

    In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

    In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

    I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
