What's it Like Being an Angel? -Snippet Sunday

~~It's Snippet Sunday!~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. Since I’m still in plotting mode for my next project and gearing up for NaNoWriMo, today’s snippet is from my published urban fantasy title SEDUCED BY AN ANGEL, Book 3 of the Immortal Paradise series. 

(Edited to meet the 8-sentence format.)

“What’s it like?” Kazia asked. “Being an angel.”
He grunted. “I’m not sure how to answer that. What’s it like being a human?”
She threw a glance over her shoulder and smiled the same smile that had thrown him completely off guard when he’d been approaching the lounge to meet Michelle.
“What’s your job, guardian angel?”
He turned to stare far out over the ocean and said, “That’s a more complicated question than you might think.”

I'm J. Rose Allister, wife, working mom, and the author of over twenty-five books. Somewhere in between one and the next, I love hanging out here on my blog and over on Twitter. Give me a comment or follow-I love chatting with people!


  1. Nice use of the 8's. I like her questions and his answers that give nothing away. Well done, J Rose.

  2. I love angel romances. he's not giving anything away with his answers either. love it

  3. Delightful eight. That last line really gets me pondering.

  4. The last line reflects the complications this angel is about to take on. Nice work!

  5. She's awfully evasive, and so is he. What a wonderful conversational dance they're having. Great eight!

  6. I'm thoroughly intrigued - excellent excerpt!

  7. Sounds like both of them might have something to hide, especially him with his final answer. Great 8!

  8. What's it like to be you--never an easy question to answer. It doesn't feel like he really tried, though. Wonder what's making his life so complicated?

  9. A man that's being deliberately obtuse...I have a feeling her curiosity won't be curbed quite so easily.
