$25 & $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway: Savage Angel by Stacy Gail

Original Title: Savage Angel
Series: Earth Angels #2
Author: Stacy Gail
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: February 4th 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance


Feel nothing. Sara Savitch's personal mantra has been hard to live by ever since her torrid one-night stand with army doctor Gideon Mandeville. Descended from the Seraphim, angels known as heaven's soldiers, Sara may be an expert fighter, but she's an amateur when it comes to relationships.

Physically unharmed, but still battle-scarred, Gideon has returned to Dallas in the hopes of regaining his faith in humanity—and in himself. Instead he's walked into a nightmare. His father is on a serial killer's hit list, and has hired a personal bodyguard—the very woman who has haunted Gideon's dreams for a year.

As Sara works to build an impenetrable fortress around her client, she yearns to tear down the one around Gideon's heart. With his bitter rejection of warriors, will he ever be able to accept her true nature? Sara must find a way to trust Gideon with her secret as the killer closes in

EXCERPT

“No!”

For a second he thought he imagined Sara’s scream even as the crash of the broken bottle filled his universe at the same time he hit the ground. That all-too-familiar whoosh that was the devil’s own breath erupted over him even as he did his damnedest to roll away from the wave of liquid fire that had to be reaching out to him.

Only it wasn’t.

Rolling to escape the flames, Gideon came to a stop only when he slammed up against a weedy sapling and could go no further. He waited for the insane agony of flesh burning to the bone, a scream bottled up inside his throat. Instead, his fierce grimace of anticipated hell on earth dissolved as a chaotic vortex of numb disbelief swallowed up his basic understanding of the world around him.

INTERVIEW WITH STACY GAIL

  1. Is there an inspiration behind why you chose writing?
SG: Does being a hopeless romantic count? :)  When I was a kid, I “rewrote” all the Trixie Belden books so that Trixie and Jim Frayne wound up kissing.  I think I invented fan fiction!

  1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you "grew up"?
SG:  To be a figure skating pro AND a romance writer.  Guess what?  I’m both! *happy dance*

  1. Finish the sentence- one book I wish I had written is....
SG:  “Working For The Devil” by Lilith Saintcrow.  I love that book <3

  1. What are your current literary works?  Any sneak peaks?
SG:  While I’m focused on SAVAGE ANGEL right now, the next book in the series, WOUNDED ANGEL, is out May 27th.  Up to this point, The Earth Angels could almost be read as stand-alone stories.  But the third book is a pivotal part to the overall story arc, and I can’t wait for people to get a look at it. *is excited*

  1. If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
SG: I go back to the past to find out what my REAL family name is!!!!  My surname is what’s called a “gangplank” name—in other words, when my ancestors walked off the boat and gave their names to officials, it was spelled PHONETICALLY. Poof went the family history on my father’s side. :(

  1. What is your favorite scene in the book and why do you love it?
SG:  Ooh, great question!  One of my favorite scenes just has to be when the hero, Gideon Mandeville, sees Sara’s paranormal side in all its fiery glory. Sara is a descendant of the Seraphim, or heaven’s soldiers.  She can manipulate fire and even absorb it, but at a terrible physical cost to her mostly human body.  When Gideon sees her do this, all bets are off.

Thank you so much for the interview, and for letting me chat a bit about SAVAGE ANGEL!

    1. I wish I could give everyone the chance to try figure skating. Seriously, Ingeborg, it's like what I suspect flying must feel like. I'd love to give that feeling to the world. :)

    1. Ami, I absolutely ADORED creating Sara's awkward/vulnerable side. She was so competent in the field, but so backward in dealing with personal issues, she just broke my heart. :)

      Thanks for asking, and for stopping by!

  10. If I were you I'd want to know what your 'real' family name is too. I have documentation going back generations for my family. It's fascinating.
