Betrayal by M.L. Guida
Heather Bowen, a drug and alcohol counselor, has always been able to see auras, but now she’s being haunted in her sleep by a red-eyed man who’s peddling a psychotic drug to her clients. After her sister becomes his next victim, Heather is determined to prove her sister’s innocence. Life as she knows it becomes more unpredictable when the new counselor, Scythe Angel, arrives. It doesn’t take Heather more than a first meeting to determine this larger than life man is commanding, pushy, determined and downright sexy. However there’s something about him she’s not sure she can trust, no matter how she finds herself drawn to him.
Scythe knows he can clear Heather’s sister’s name, but to do it he must confront his elusive and dangerous brother who seems to be bound to the dark side. With his own wings on the line, Scythe has to discover a way to save his brother’s soul before it’s too late. An arduous task for Scythe becomes even more complicated by his unearthly attraction to Heather.
For both of them to succeed they will have to learn to trust each other or fail; losing everything they hold dear.

The Angels of Death have landed here on earth. Twins born to serve God and his Archangels, they come to collect souls and escort them to their proper location. Only one of them has now gone rogue and his brother is the only one who can save him.....if he can be saved.
This book was very fast paced . Loaded with action and suspenses around every page. I can't imagine how Heather held everything together. Her world literally fell down!!! But then out of no where comes this amazing man who shows her what she really has been missing in her life .....love. The question is can she open herself to be loved given her childhood and her Hell on earth events surrounding her. Excellent drama on all levels with romance thrown in as well. It is an easy read, but kind of eerie at times. Blade is just plain ruthless at times. I would read this authors work again, overall solid novel!!!! 4 stars
This story is about a woman named Heather who just witnessed her sisters death in a dream. She has to save her. As Heather is trying to get to her at Rosemary's job, she ends up getting pulled over, delaying her. Unable to save her sister.
When she gets to the scene the man, the same man from her dreams or rather nightmare with the red in his eyes is there. She knows but no one can see him, not even the police.
As she's trying to deal with the funeral and death, brutal death of her sister, she has to interview a man responding to the ad. Name? Scythe Angel. He also has an ability....showing what would become of ex users life if they ever went back to using.
Heather at first isn't sure what to make of him. But she has an attraction to him, almost feral.
She finds out that Scythe has claimed her as an angel~mate. Heather is NOT happy with that. She doesn't even like him much less be a mate!
She had to deal with trying to forgive herself, deal with Scythe and his brother Blade who wants to kill them both. And also find out what is happening to her clients, why do they keep going back to using after finally being off of drugs for so long and then go crazy and kill people after they get high....
Betrayal will keep you guessing and get you a little hot and bothered. Definitely worth reading and getting sucked into! 4 3/4 stars
