Charmiene has been alone since her grandmother died, so when two sexy hikers ask to stay in her trail shelter, she invites them into her house instead. As an Asian American in a rural town, her dating prospects have always been nonexistent.

Haniel wishes demons hadn’t ruined his ability to fly, but his best friend, Jeremiel, has his back while he hunts for the creatures that hurt him. Of course, when he meets Charmeine, all thoughts of fighting fly away. The only thing he can think about is making love.

Jeremiel would do anything for Haniel—the angel saved his life, after all. But when they meet Charmeine, he knows the time for wandering is over. She’s small, fierce, and just what they need to push them from friendship into love.

Unfortunately, the demons don’t want them to bond. They want all the angels to burn…

I’m so happy that Manic Readers loved Angel’s Shield! They gave it 4 stars! Here’s some of the review:

Ms. Leaf gave us well-developed likeable characters. The chemistry felt real and believable. It also moved her story arc along without detracting from the love story between these three.

Mid Week Tease #MWTease: Two strangers… Angel Shifters series

MidWeekTease2

This is my first time participating in the Mid Week Tease, hosted by the fantabulous Sandra Bunino! Thanks Sandra! Here’s my contribution, a little teaser from my latest release, Angel’s Shield:

angels-shield

Charmeine stood at her back garden, watering her tomatoes in the dark when two men strolled into her yard. She froze, water still pouring from her hose.

“Easy miss,” one of them said gently. “Sorry to startle you.”

She frowned. Where have I heard that voice before?

“We’re just here for the trail shelter,” the second one explained, moving closer.

She squinted, telling her stupid heart to stop banging on her ribs. People come all the time to use the shelter, you ninny. She turned off the hose and backed up. “Hang on. I’m going to turn on the porch light,” she said. She should’ve done that when she’d first gotten home, but there had still been enough light to see the garden. The sun had set while she stood there, staring into the dirt. Sweat trickled down between her breasts and she resisted the urge to rub. The last thing she needed was for some strangers to see her touching herself. She stepped onto the step and reached for the light. The two men waited, like perfect gentlemen. When she flicked the switch, she gasped. The guys she’d served in the diner stood at the edge of her property. “Oh,” she said, like an idiot.

The dark-haired one grinned. “It’s our lovely server, from the restaurant.”

She blushed at the ‘lovely,’ but didn’t let it rattle her. “You’re here to use the shelter?”

The blonde— his name is Haniel, she reminded herself—nodded wearily.

“We’re pretty tired.” He looked around, then shrugged off his dusty backpack. “We won’t bother you. We just want to get some sleep.”

Charmeine bit the inside of her cheek, then made a split-second decision. The kind that drove her parents crazy before they’d died when she was eight. Her mother used to tell her that some day her luck would run out, but she couldn’t help it. She just knew things. Her grandmother always, always, understood. The old lady had told her it was part of her heritage, to follow her instincts and have her hunches proven right. And she was so lonely these days.

“You can stay in the house,” she said, stooping to coil up the hose. She smiled as they stared at her, dumbfounded. “I even brought your burgers home, if you’re still hungry.”

“Miss, we couldn’t impose like that,” Haniel said hurriedly.

“My name is Charmeine,” she replied.

The men exchanged looks. The dark-haired one stepped forward, holding out his hand. “I’m Jeremiel.”

She cocked her head. “That’s an angel’s name.” Her gaze flicked down to his arm where tattoos sprawled over his skin. A bandage marred the smooth lines, making her forget all about her suspicions. “Oh my God, are you okay?”

His hand didn’t waver. “I’m fine. It’s just a little cut.”

It didn’t look all that small to her. She glanced at his face. He was still smiling calmly. She slipped her hand into his, strangely uncertain, but the moment her fingers touched his skin all her worry fled. He felt good. Familiar. She didn’t want to let him go. Arousal slid through her, hot and strange, and she could tell he felt it, too, from the startled look on his face. He felt like… home. Which made no sense. She was already home. The other man had moved closer while they stood there. He smiled at her, too, but his held more teeth than kindness. She wasn’t sure if he knew how intimidating he looked.

“I’m Haniel.” He held out his hand.

She forced herself to let go of Jeremiel and put her palm against his friend’s. A jolt of heat shot through her, like she’d touched a live wire. She tried to pull away, but his fingers closed around hers, almost too tightly. Suddenly, she didn’t want him to let go. She didn’t want to move. She grabbed onto him just as hard as he held onto her and stared at his eyes, the hazel looking more brown than green in the dark. He felt like a promise already sealed, or the bit of excitement you feel when you step in for a kiss. He felt dangerous. Alluring.

She had no idea what the hell was happening.

Here are some other Mid Week Teasers for you!

Excerpt:

When the door shut behind her, Jeremiel turned on Haniel. “Are you crazy?” He grabbed the quilt and dragged it off his friend. Haniel stared at him, hair mussed. Dick hard and poking through his boxers.

Jeremiel looked away, his face heating.

“Sorry,” Haniel said, his voice low. “I, um, wasn’t thinking.”

Jeremiel took a deep breath. “Maybe we should talk about this.”

Haniel laughed shortly. “About what? The fact that ever since we touched Charmeine I’ve been wanting to touch you, too? That I want her more than I’ve ever wanted a female?”

Jeremiel went hot, then cold, then hot all over. “Jesus, Haniel.” He was not going to turn around and look at him while they had this discussion.

“Yeah, exactly.” The bed rustled.

Next thing he knew, Haniel was sitting next to him. Leaning into him.

“I could feel you, you know,” he said quietly. “It’s okay.”

Jeremiel’s heart gave a sick thump. “Why didn’t you roll over?”

“I liked it.” Haniel shrugged. “I don’t care if that makes me gay, or whatever.”

Jeremiel swallowed. “I like Charmeine.”

“So do I,” Haniel replied immediately.

“What are we supposed to do with that?” Jeremiel asked, clenching his fists. His morning erection was finally gone, thank God for small favors.

“I say we stay here for a little while. Rest up.” He took a deep breath. “See what happens.”

“See what happens,” Jeremiel echoed, confused as fuck. He laughed quietly. “We’re really messed up.”

Haniel bumped their shoulders together. “Yeah, well. So what if we are?”

Jeremiel didn’t respond. What could he say? It wasn’t like he was going anywhere. After they’d fought the demon at Castle Archangel, no one could separate them. Haniel had given up everything for him. Jeremiel would never be able to repay that. And really, who would care that he wanted to kiss his best friend right now? He glanced over. Haniel fidgeted, eyes dark. Not thinking, Jeremiel reached up and touched his mouth. Haniel’s lips were really soft.

“Fuck,” Haniel breathed, eyes fluttering shut.

Jeremiel leaned in. When Haniel’s mouth touched his, he shuddered. “What are we doing?” he asked, lips touching.

“Shut up.” Haniel slid his fingers into Jeremiel’s hair and deepened the kiss.

Jeremiel’s brain went offline. He gripped Haniel’s arms, cock going hard and aching all over again. He kissed his friend until he didn’t know where he was anymore. Haniel held him steady, kissing him back with such intensity that he felt their connection down to his toes.

“If Charmeine were here, we would kiss her like this,” Haniel whispered, startling Jeremiel into immobility. He bit at Jeremiel’s lower lip. “And this.” He licked inside.

“Oh my God.” Jeremiel couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. The idea of sharing her was more than he could take.

“She’d probably be shocked, but also intrigued,” Haniel continued, kissing down Jeremiel’s jaw. “She wants us both. Did you see her looking at us? She’s down there in her little kitchen, thinking about us right now. Wondering if we’re touching each other.”

“What are you saying?” Jeremiel asked breathlessly.

“Can’t you feel it?” Haniel asked.

Jeremiel couldn’t feel anything except the pounding of his heart. “I feel you,” he murmured.

“She’s our mate, Jeremiel.”

Jeremiel went still, lips against Haniel’s cheek. “Impossible. She’s human.”

Haniel pulled him closer. “I wish it were impossible. Why is her name Charmeine? That’s an angelic name.”

“She’s human.” Jeremiel slid his hand down Haniel’s arm, gripping hard, as if he were about to slide off a cliff and only his friend could save him.

“I’m not so sure about that.” Haniel kissed him again and Jeremiel couldn’t stop him. Didn’t want to.

“Angels don’t mate with humans. They don’t mate with two people, either. They pair up,” Jeremiel said against Haniel’s mouth. He trembled. What was happening to them? His skin was on fire. “Trios are a myth.”

“Anything’s possible. Look at me. I’m mostly broken, but I’m still here,” Haniel said, pulling away again.

“Stop that.” Jeremiel grabbed his hands, then slid an arm around his neck. “You’re not broken. You’ve never been broken. Even if you never fly again, you’re still you.” From the look on Haniel’s face, his friend didn’t believe a word he said. Fuck this. Jeremiel turned, climbing on top of him and pushing him down onto the bed. He shoved his cock into the hollow between Haniel’s hip and abdomen. God, so fucking good. “Shut up.”

Haniel closed his eyes and bucked up, his own hard-on bumping against Jeremiel’s. “This part of me isn’t broken, just everything else.”

Jeremiel bit his neck. “I said, shut up.”

Haniel panted, hips moving urgently. “You have no idea what you’re doing.”

Angel’s Shield release day!
