1, Chapter 1: Secrets



In the cool darkness of the semi-crowded
bar, I study the glass in front of me and consider my journey. Memories of my
old life fade like smoke in a glass. The shame that held me so tightly now
dances at the edges of my mind like the whisper of a bad dream, a flicker of
shadows that no longer make sense in my world.

Young women in their shiny slip dresses twist and laugh on the dance floor, but
instead of resentment, my lips melt into a smile. My old self—cynical, bitter,
defeated—is a memory I have to work to recall. These days I could dance all
night with them, but I’d rather spend my energy on other activities.

The slim glass holds a pale amber liquid, and I can’t resist taking a sip. An
involuntary wince pinches my eyes as I put it down. Seven and seven. Refreshing
citrus dragged down by the heavy undertone of whiskey. So gross.

Sliding my palms over my thighs, I realize my outfit isn’t much different from
those girls on the dance floor. The deep red silk is fitted at my waist, and
drapes loosely over my torso. My long dark hair is swept over one shoulder
revealing a thin spaghetti strap. I lightly touch the delicate gold chain
around my neck leading to the floating heart pendant that sits between my
collarbones, and light glances off the thick gold cuff on my wrist.

Unlike that first night, I’m alone here. My best friend Elaine is miles away
with her new husband, most likely indulging in that blissful honeymoon period
of early marriage. Make that, most certainly indulging. I know those two very

I came by myself to the bar in Princeton after finishing my business with a
client in town. My infant son is back in Wilmington, spending the weekend with
his grandmother. Studying my hands, I admire the deep blue sapphire ring on my
finger, but I have no wedding band.

At thirty-two, I’m an unmarried mother of a beautiful little boy, and I
wouldn’t change a thing… Yet. The tiny silver scar at my hairline reminds me of
what a bad marriage is, and with my successful marketing business and the
gorgeous cottage at the beach that I own, I’m satisfied with my life, calm. Not
desperate. I’ll take my next steps deliberately, with confidence.

All these thoughts preoccupy my mind when I blink up and catch him watching me
from across the square-shaped bar. Blue eyes, strikingly blue because of the
way they stand out beneath his dark brow, coupled with collar-length thick dark

He’s massive, at least six-two, and elegantly dressed with a thick stainless
watch on his wrist. I can spot his type a mile away—rich, powerful, accustomed
to getting whatever he wants… I know what he wants. A smile teases at the
corner of my mouth. No coincidence I happened to look up at that exact moment
to catch his gaze.

He starts to move, but his eyes never leave mine. I don’t look away either. I
also know what I want. Thick cords of muscle ripple beneath the thin black
sweater he wears as he glides past the oblivious patrons talking and laughing.
Some are more animated than others, waving their arms and putting their drinks
in peril. A close beard shadows his face, and the muscles low in my pelvis
tighten at the thought of how it will feel brushing the soft skin of my inner

Summer’s Angel
by Tiffany Ann

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Angels, Short story

Summer couldn’t believe it when she was offered a job with one of the leading translators of the written word, Walter Addison. Of course, being his great-niece could have had something to do with the offer. She arrives in Marblehead ready to help her great uncle and his partner in any way she can. 
Leviah is a Fallen Angel having been cast out of Heaven for not choosing a side. He roamed the world for centuries until he met the first Addison. Since that time he has stayed with the family, helping them in whatever way he could. He never expected Walter to choose a vibrant, strong-willed female to take his place as caretaker of the Addison Estate, or assist in the world of translations. 
When Summer meets Leviah sparks fly and the attraction is instant. Now if he can just figure out a way to show her his wings and horns that won’t send her running back to New Orleans. Forget returning to Heaven, he is ready to be Summer’s Angel…

Meet the Author


Tiffany Ann grew up in a small town in the heart of America. Her first memories were of her mother taking her to the library where she fell in love with children’s ghost stories. It wasn’t long before a love of reading turned to a love of writing. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book she loves watching movies and traveling. Tiffany makes her home in Kansas with her cat Midnight.


Reviewed by Dana Marie

Levi is a fallen Angel who is protected/provided a home for by one family through the years. He is the backbone to a lucrative family business of translating from old documents, books, and artifacts. Summer just happens to be a part of that family. She begins working for her Uncle and soon discovers that her sexy coworker hides a secret, just like the books they translate.

I enjoyed the characters.  I don’t mind a strong angel in need of a little dominance in the bedroom, at all. However, it wasn’t really needed to keep the story moving or build a connection with the character.  In fact, that, along with over-sensitive feel took away from his character a bit. Summer seemed strong, even tempered, and had a realistic feel. Now, Uncle Walter seems to be the quirky character that is wise and fun.

It was a good read. Some tweaks and some more juicy tidbits would make this a great one, in my opinion. I mean just the story alone is intriguing and different.  I love it, and kudos to the author for creating it. I’m looking forward to see what the author has in store next.
