He wants to forget

West is an archangel’s assassin delivering justice to supernatural creatures who break the law. Not a straightforward job because he also has to absorb the memories of those he kills. Even worse, West is breaking the law himself in an attempt to free his brother from hell. If he doesn’t succeed before his archangel boss finds out, West will be joining his sibling.

He wants to remember

A young guy wakes in a London park with his memories gone. He has no idea who he is, or where he comes from. A bracelet engraved with the single word Tao is the only clue to his identity. With no sign of his memory returning, he drifts into a life on the streets. Begging is his only way to survive.

Two worlds collide

When Tao returns West’s stolen wallet, West offers to buy him a coffee. Tao delights in the chance to sit down with a good-looking guy until his instincts tell him to run away. Fast. West is surprised when Tao flees, considering how much he’d been mentally urging him to stay. Is he losing his touch or is Tao more than a scruffy young man down on his luck?

Only one way to find out.

I don’t read Paranormal too often, but when the mood strikes Barbara Elsborg is one of my go tos. Her writing is smooth and effortless, and her stories always keep me engaged. Archangel’s Assasin is about a man trying to find out who he is and an angel who can’t stop himself from falling for him.


-Banter. This author has some excellent dialogue. Her characters’ interactions never seize to amuse me.

-Mystery. Mysteries can sometimes make my eyes gloss over with boredom, but in this case, it kept me intrigued.

-Push and pull. There was delicious sexual tension between our two main characters.

-Chemistry, you could feel it on every page.

-Amnesia. It’s not a storyline I come across often but when I do I get sucked right in.

All in all, I think this was a fantastic PNR story Ms. Elsborg delivered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. 4 Stars.

I’m a romance junkie, who loves when books make her cry from heartbreak and happiness.

A few of my favorite tropes:

-Friends to lovers
