4 "Faith & True Love" Stars!

A truly unique read. Although this story does have an undercurrent of religion and paranormal elements, it is not a traditional paranormal or Christian romance by any means, and therefore can be equally enjoyed by both PNR/Christian romance lovers and non-PNR or Christian romance enthusiasts alike.

Evelyn Casey's love life and career leave a lot to be desired. Stuck in a job designing denim fashion designs for a boss who lacks imagination, and having failed to meet anyone even remotely close to Mr. Right by her mid-twenties, she's not sure where her life is headed--that is until she quite literally bumps into her guardian angel (Lucian).

She's not supposed to remember him, even though Lucian has been there from her day 1 (in fact he's been around for a long time before that, at least a couple thousand years). Yet, in all those years, Lucian has never met someone who makes him feel like Evie. He is convinced it is true love--a feeling she clearly shares from the forbidden moments they have stolen together (even though she has seen his flaws--yes, even angels have their demons)--but does such a thing as true love really exist? Moreover, any interactions that are not immediately erased from the human's memory are clearly forbidden between a guardian angel and any human. So could an angel ever have a real relationship with a human?

All in all, what I enjoyed the most about Lucian Divine was that the plot requires the reader to contemplate certain existential questions, such as:
What is faith?
Is there such a thing as fate?
Is there such a thing as luck or karma?
Do bad things happen as a form of cosmic retribution for failing to follow the rules?
Does true love exist?
The depths that the two main characters will go to for their love is truly inspirational. If you're looking for something fresh that pushes you to consider some concepts outside of the traditional romance world but still is layered into the familiar romantic landscape, then Lucian Divine may just be the next book you're looking for.
