Covet

Deadly Sins, Book One

Andris Bear

Formerly "Angel Unbound"

Blurb: Strong-willed Joey Benton is the half-mortal child of an angel with heavenly powers. She has no knowledge of her heritage or the power running through her veins until she meets a handsome stranger who forces her to question her life and the world around her. And she quickly becomes a key player in a battle that will define a victory for Heaven or Hell.

Ursus, a sexy Archangel, doesn’t want the responsibility of another charge, especially when Joey is so defiant. Protecting her from Hell might very well be the biggest challenge of his immortal life. But when his feelings for Joey get in the way of his duty, it’s a challenge he refuses to lose.

Review: Covet is a quick and sexy romp with angels and demons, shaman and incubi. Her internal monologue and conversations with her friends and Ursus were my favorite parts of the book. Joey is a glib, sarcastic, small business owner who really enjoys being a photographer of man-candy calendars. Turns out that Joey is the product of a human and archangel, and worthy of some stellar personal security in the form of Ursus–an archangel with a troubled past.

Running on vague prophecies and information from Devi — an oracle who is a bit of a spazzy-Cathy — Joey and Ursus have to team up in order to tip the balance in the fight between Heaven and Hell. A raucous journey of sarcasm, friendship, sacrifice, and laughter, I definitely recommend Angel Unbound as a book, and Andris Bear as an author.
