Book & Author Details:
Sweet Sacrifice by L. D. Rose
Publication date: September 13th 2017
Genres: Dark Paranormal Romance
Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.
As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.
The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?
A standalone dark paranormal romance and book nine in The Soul Mate Tree series.
Although this is described as a dark paranormal romance, and certainly touches on some difficult issues, I wouldn’t necessarily class it as such.
The author has done a wonderful job in creating a story with a true depth of feeling. Irene’s grief is palpable and Bash’s conflict about his position whilst not entirely subtle, feels genuine.
A beautiful, touching story of love, loss and hope, packed into a small package.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
