Title: Sweet Sacrifice
Author: L.D. Rose
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 13, 2017
Cover Designer: Wren Taylor
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he is forbidden to see her, he cannot resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.
As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.
The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?
Bash’s gaze caught on a couple on the dance floor, the sight of her sinking into him like hooks and bringing him to a standstill.
With her dark curls springing over her shoulders, she spun across the hardwood, her pale gray dress flowing around her. Much like in his recent vision of her, she tipped her head back and laughed, beautiful, stunning, her smile as bright as the yellow calla lilies tucked in her hair. She swayed with a man in dress whites, a Marine, another fucking soldier she didn’t belong with. And as the rain of realization became a downpour of comprehension, he remembered the engagement, where Claude proposed to Lucille—at their wedding—right before Bash left for another tour of Afghanistan.
“Bash?” Gabriel stepped in front of him, blocking his view, pale eyes narrowed.
Bash’s hand slammed into Gabriel’s chest, pushing him away as he lurched forward. Gabriel reacted faster, though, snatching his arm and wrenching him back at least four feet. Bash lunged again and the Arc’s hand fisted in his white button-down shirt.
“Don’t,” Gabriel growled, all humor draining from his angular face and setting his expression in stone. “Do not.”
Bash’s heart punched at the angel’s fist, every fiber of his being burning with the urge to run to her, to wrap his arms around her and feel her body against his one more time. Envy, rage, longing, and sadness blasted through him in a toxic tornado of emotion ready to whip this place into oblivion.
He nearly ground his molars into pulp. “Let. Me. Go.”
“You are dead, Sebastian. You’re no longer part of this world. All you’ll do is bring her pain, bring yourself pain. Don’t do this.” Twin streams of air whistled from the Arc’s nostrils as he shook his head. “I should’ve never brought you here.”
Bring him pain? More pain than he’d already endured? No.

4 out of 5 stars
Sweet Sacrifice by L.D. Rose was just what I needed. It's not too short, nor does it drag on and Ms. Rose always has a way to create a world you want to know more about. We begin with a huge disturbance at the local Zoo. Amid the chaos, beings are exposed to disbelieving human eyes. That is except for Phoebe. Phoebe is but 6 years old but she knows what she saw.
Nurse Irene has had a rough couple of years. Her SEAL husband, Sebastian, remains in heart and to keep her mind sane, she throws herself into her work. She's lonely, exhausted and barely hanging on by a thread despite her best friends efforts.
Sebastian is working alongside a different band of brothers now and while he's developed new bonds, he still feels a pull towards the life he once knew. A life he can't seem to let go of. This is a paranormal love story about love, second chances and of course, sweet sacrifices.

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
The brothers are back! It's bee too long, far. too. long. Soul Redeemed begins with a dark, dramatic and solemn introduction only to be followed up by some much needed (and missed!) vitamin Z! One of the many great things about this series is the range of emotions given the different personalities of the brothers. Ms. Lake writes dark, gritty paranormal romance/urban fantasy with just the right dose of comic relief. Each brother is very different and compliment one another so perfectly, that no matter your 'taste', there is indeed, a brother for you! And then there's Xander, I've missed that Fallen...
Soul Redeemed is Calix's story and while it provides everything you would want in a romantic storyline, he and Ava were overshadowed a bit, at least for me. More on that in a sec. Don't get me wrong, they had a great storyline, twists, turns and amazing chemistry that had me rooting for them the entire time. For me, Ferno stole.the. show. He owned each and every scene (though few) that he was in. The scenes with he and his brother Calix, oh the feels! It's nice being able to 'fan girl' again over these demons! Please, oh please let Ferno's book be next!
