Short stories set in the Guild Hunter series involving some of the characters around Elena and Raphael. They might be short, but Nalini still packed them with enough tension and heat.
In Angel's Wolf, a vampire from Archangel's Kiss is sent to seductive yet lethal angel. For those who have read the book, it's nice to know that he gets a happy ending after what he endured. It is a bittersweet story of two damaged people who found solace in each other.
In Angels' Judgment, we learn the backstory of Sara and Deacon. I love these two, and how they met and fell in-love is really something. Sara is just newly appointed head of the Guild Hunters of America and she is given a test to prove her worth. Good thing someone like Deacon got her back. But who is Deacon really?
Angels' Pawn is Ashwini and Janvier's story. They are a funny couple or not. You can't really tell if they are. Hopefully in the future we'll know for sure. Even Ashwini can't tell. In this story, Ashwini is called to intervene when a problem involving angels and vampires. She has to get to the bottom of the problem before it gets worst and she and Janvier get caught in between.
They say save the best for last. In Angel's Dance, Galen just left her former master, another archangel, for a place in Raphael's circle. He still needs to win the trust of the members of Raphael's circle and proving his worth to the archangel. He quickly notices the presence of Jessamy. We met Jessamy earlier in the books as the teacher of young angels in the Refuge. These two are an odd couple. Their relationship development is beautiful because both of them have emotional baggage that serves as conflict in building relationships. Especially Jessamy who resigned herself to be alone, being different from other angels. It's really a good story, it also gotten to show how Galen and Illium become friends, and a glimpse of Raphael before he became a cadre.
