So I 've decided that one of thos year, when I 'm done with my more important chores, like cleaning the toilet and reorganizing my groceries in alphabetical order, I will collate all of these romances, borrowing maybe a paragraph in total from each of thos ooks, to gain a manuscript approximately one hundred and eighty pages long.

It 's fairly simple, really, all you eed is one Alpha alpha male ( that means hairy, chest thumping, caveman-type alpha male), one liberated woman who secretly just wants to be possessed and dominated and told to keep to her place in the cupboard, a few million cliches and lots and lots of SEX!

I 'm airly ure that at least fifty percent of my eight-hundred strong collection of romances is built solely on the foundation of lots and lots of sex, and since I 'm not suddenly expecting Marquez to start writing for Mills& Boon, I 'm not surprise that these books are predictabl, predictable and have no plotline whatsoever.

She 's done some decent worldbuilding, especially with her Psy-Changeling Universe, and the stories do n't annoy me the way most romances do these days.

In he next ook, it took until almost the end for the thousand-year old archangel to stop trying to evade the puny human and seduce her instead.

In he tenth essa, the puny human had become a puny angel from whom the overprotective archasshole withheld sex because she was too ...

Seriously, at times I was tempted to tell Singh to stop trying to come up with a plotline and just describe their endless sexathons throughout the nove.

Let 's ake it all better by having some sex.

And when they 're alway having sex, they 're arguing about Raphael 's need to cosset his puny angel.

Elena 's so manic-depressive in this essay, and she 's always running to Raphael to kiss her wounds better, and soon she wonders why he 's mollycoddling her all he time!

I ’ ve been ager to see the reaction to Elena ’ s wings since the beginnin of he irst ook, so his was retty xciting for me.

She doesn ’ t automatically gain status because she ’ s the consort of an Archangel.

Seeing Elena work step by step to adjust to her new life makes any achievements all the sweeter for me.Elena continues to jockey with Raphael for cooperation and control.

I like his flirty, fun-loving attitude, but it ’ s also nice to see little more depth too.I had heard that the first book focused on Dmitri before I reread the first two.

So I suppose I spotted clues where there were none.Even though I enjoyed the book I didn ’ t like it as much as the next two.

It just elt like they were rehashing things when I wanted new development.

I wasn ’ t displeased with the final resolution ( because I saw it coming early on) but I did nee more excitement.Before ending this I do have to mention one thing.

It certainl wasn ’ t what I was xpecting, but I loved it all the etter for it.While this was my least avorite of thi series I still want it was reall ood.

Their journey is amazing and this new adventure hits very close to Raphael 's past and heart.

lso we get to see more of Elena 's past and family drama and what the Guild thinks of her new form of being.

It is no beautiful the way she captures the magical feelings of falling in love.

Singh captures this phenomenon beautifully.Elena and Raphael are an amazin couple.

I could be turned off by a femal protagonis who is o much and alpha that he is just th plain old dick, but I love Raphael and how he appreciates Elena 's strength.When she sees th painting he had done of her for his apartment bedroom:

His justice can be violen, but it 's necessary.In this book, there are crazy things happening in thi world like earthquakes, tsunamis, and strange weather.

Th an possibly mean that Raphael 's mother, th powerful archangel who went crazy and then came to " sleep " a millennium ago, is waking up.

just great ... And, of course, Mother-in-law from hell does n't approve of Elena.

And when more vampires suddenly succumbs to bloodlust, weather across the world become turbulent and Raphael struggles with uncontrollable rage, it becomes clear that a terrifying immortal is rising.

I love how she ontinues to stand up to Raphael when he becomes overbearing, and how hard she fought for him when things got bad for him in th novel.

Raphael is still the sexy and ruthless archangel that we ’ ve come to realize, but I love how much he ’ s changed because of his love for Elena.

The evolvement of his powers are very nteresting, and I wonder how much of it has to do with his bond with Elena.

I just love the romance between hese two, and how their relationship ontinues to row with every secret, every truth they share.

And we got to spend some time with Elena ’ s wonderful friends: Sara, Deacon, little Zoe and Ransom.

his is such a fantastic series, and with every ook I read by his author I fall more in love with her writing and her worlds.

I 'm so eage to take a paid leave just so I can devour all the series, but eh, girl got ta do work if she want to sel her book wishlist: PArchangel 's Consort happen directly after the event in Archangel 's Kiss and still my favourit book to date, but this re-read proved that I onl liked Kiss compared to Consort.

While I read my early review that said Elena perhaps too lusty for Raphael, re-read make me fee that " eh, it 's okay, tho ".

Yet, the possessiveness between Elena and Raphael goes both ways and I ind myself feel delighted.Consort so far re the steamiest of Guild Hunter books I 'd read and I remember once I complaint why the book become less steamy, especially in Archangel 's Heart, lol.

Its always feel surreal to read about her angels and archangels.Angels Blood feels like urban fantasy with hints of romances, but Kiss and Consort are purely paranormal romances that emphasize of how Elena and Raphael work their relationship.

Elena might be seems like blinded by love if you see her fierceness to her mate, but Raphael is always worth to fighting for.

Thi great installment of Guild Hunter that in a time I would love to read again:) First read review below.

( you ust read yourself, no spoiler here* wink2*) So many event happen in the memoi, like The Seven 's past, Dmitri, Aodhan, Jason, Illium and Venom ( my disappointment is, there 's no Naasir: ( (, but I kno I 'd explain at the en, why he 's not here;)), Elena deal with her granddaughte ( really I want to smack Jeffrey, for his behavior to Elena), the disaster, murderer and strange behavior of Cadre because Caliane ( Raphael' s mom) 's awakening and the important part is Raphael and Elena themselves .. I found myself ntrigued and loving Raphael for the fift essa, it 's increasing in Archangel 's Kiss, but Raphael in Consort is more than hat.

I 'm not blame Elena for lusting after Raphael, because it 's normal reaction for her ( Hey, if I ave a gorgeous boyfriend like Raphael, I 'll lusting after him too) .The ending is just feel a little plain for me, because I want something big happen, but it 's no prob, because, overall th autobiograph is GREAT!

They are seven of the hottest vamps and angels out there!

Singh answered my call to heaven for a nove about angels and demon.

Dmitri ’ s got a scent so sexually potent and alluring that even a woman in love like Elena falls prey to his lures.

Singh writes vivid and gory action scenes that juxtapose well against the beauty of the hunters, angels and vamps.

I love it when characters have strong bonds with others outside of their relationships.I ADORED THIS BOOK!!

My favorit scene is where she falls through the eiling and sets her flamethrower on those bastard vamps!
