The vangels are back in Vampire in Paradise, the latest in Sandra Hill's bestselling Deadly Angels series...
It's been centuries since the Norseman Sigurd Sigurdsson was turned into a Vangel—a Viking Vampire Angel—as punishment for his sin of envy, but he's still getting the hang of having fangs that get in the way when seducing women. Slaying demon vampires known as Lucipires and using his healing gifts as a cancer research doctor, Sigurd is sent to Florida's Grand Keys Island as a resident physician . . . where he encounters a sinfully beautiful woman.
The only hope Marisa Lopez has of curing her five-year-old daughter is a pricey experimental procedure. When she meets the good-looking doctor, Marisa is speechless. Then Sigurd tells her he believes he can help her daughter. Could this too-hot-to-resist Viking doctor be an angel of some sort sent to bring a miracle for her daughter? Or is he just a vampire bent on breaking Marisa's heart?
Envy is his sin, killing Lucipires is his job and his newest assignment has Sigurd on Grand Keys Island as a physician to stop the Lucipires’ newest recruitment scheme only he’s being distracted by Marisa, a young woman contemplating sin in order to save her daughter in this riveting paranormal romance. While this story of course has its emotionally gripping side, its exciting spine tingling dangerous side, and its red hot passionate side, it also has lots of humor and fun as the resort full of sinners (perfect setting for Luci’s right?) adds a few chuckles and snarky comments. Once again, I fell in love with a vangel, so now my sin is envy because I envy Marisa her Viking. Oh yeah and I enjoyed their story and I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next vangel to come along.

About Sandra Hill:
My life and my books are a celebration of new beginnings.
Although I am a livelong writer--I'm the oddball who liked writing essays in school--it wasn't until the early 1990s that my writing interest turned to novels. It was a new beginning for me...a totally different career path from the journalism I had been practicing. More than twenty novels later, I am still in love with writing...and with new beginnings.
No wonder all of my books deals with new beginnings in some way or another. In fact, my first novel, The Reluctant Viking, first published in 1994, was about a woman on the brink of divorce looking for a chance to start all over. A new beginning for poor Ruby Jordan. Fast forward more than ten years and you will find there is a theme of new beginnings in all my books. Doesn't matter if it's divorce, death, despair, time travel, loneliness, boredom or plain old dissatisfaction, readers want to know that there is a chance for...yep, new beginnings.
One of the greatest gifts we have in this world is to find work we love, which is appreciated by others. I have been especially blessed in that regard.
