The following is a synopsis of the first novel, as to avoid spoilers

A SACRED OATH
A FALLEN ANGEL
A FORBIDDEN LOVE

Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Genre In Depth

Genre in Depth: Romance

Genre in Depth is a new series on Fictionally Sam where we delve into different genre and see how they began, their characteristics, and books within that genre, etc. New genre every first and last Wednesday of the month!

Welcome to February folks, the month of love and chocolates–or if you are super single like me, the month of single awareness. These next 28 days (especially the first 14) are a time here in the States; people from everywhere show their appreciation for those they love through grand gestures, sugary sweets, popping the big question, and taking out the trash without being asked. As for me, this month is a time where I binge read a crap ton of sappy love stories that will remind me that I’m single and my period is about to start. Like I said, a time.

But speaking of love stories–in this installment of Genre in-depth, we get to take a look at one of my top favorite genres around–you guessed it! Romance! Continue reading “Genre in Depth: Romance”
