Saving Evangeline by Nancee Cain
Evangeline is the town pariah. Everyone knows she’s crazy and was responsible for the death of her last boyfriend. Even her mother left her and moved cross-country. Lonely and desperate, Evie decides to end her life.
Rogue angel Remiel longs to return to earth, but there’s just one problem. He tends to invite trouble and hasn’t been allowed back since Woodstock. The Boss sends him to save Evangeline, but there’s a catch: he can’t reveal his angelic nature, and he must complete the task as Father Remiel Blackson.
Forced together on a cross-country trip, a forbidden romance ignites and love unfolds. A host of heavenly messengers tries to intervene, but Remiel and Evangeline are headed on a collision course to disaster. Will his love save her, or will they both be lost forever?
In a matter of minutes, we arrive at dilapidated cement block building. Neon beer signs and the sound of loud music from an old-fashioned jukebox make it feel like we’ve stepped back in time. There isn’t a man in the place that isn’t wearing a cowboy hat or ball cap, except Remi. Good thing he didn’t wear his clericals—he’d stick out like a sore thumb. The place is nothing more than a dive bar with a kitchen. The only saving grace I can see is it isn’t fast food. I don’t think I could stomach another cheap burger.
“Are you sure we’re in the right place?” A glance around the place makes me glad I have two men with me. Several drunken cowboys look me over like a prize cow at the stock show. Two weeks ago, this was just my kind of place. Now, not so much. “The people at the laundromat said it was the best place in town to eat,” Remi replies defensively.
Buy Saving Evangeline:
Nancee Cain writes contemporary and paranormal romances with a serrated edge. In her stories she addresses some tough social issues, but always with a healthy dose of humor. Her daytime hours are consumed by nursing in the never boring field of substance abuse. This is rather ironic since at age 22, she met her real-life hero in a bar. She swears the amount of alcohol she'd consumed had nothing to do with her boisterous proclamation she'd met her future husband. A year later, she married him. Raised below the Mason-Dixon line, she dishes sarcasm like a Southern woman dishes blackberry cobbler, sweet and tart. She considers life too short not to laugh and too serious not to discuss. Her ultimate book hero will always be Atticus Finch.
An avid reader and admitted autographed book junkie, Nancee needs a 12-step program for her compulsive book buying. Her Devoted Hubby swears her To-Be-Read list qualifies her as a certifiable book hoarder.
