Not So Heavenly Angels with L.M. Pruitt

When most people think of angels, they think of white robes, angels, halos… maybe harps. Probably a cloud or two and maybe some pearly gates.
Me? I tend to think of warriors. Men with a strong sense of right and wrong, who will fight for what they believe in even when it may not be the most popular thing. And as hard and fierce as they fight, they love with an even greater intensity.
And men who have sex—all kinds, to be exact.
I’ve always thought of angels as representing the whole of humanity. As such, why wouldn’t there be some who prefer to make love, to indulge in long bouts of foreplay and a slow, sensual buildup of tension—and someone else who finds excitement in hard, fast, rough, almost cruel sex? And why would they all be heterosexual? Why wouldn’t one of them be homosexual or bisexual? After all, all three are present in everyday life. To me, it makes perfect sense to see the same thing mirrored in the heavenly host.
Of course, some people are freaked out by this idea. Like I said, we’re used to the idea of angels as completely non-sexual, almost androgynous. I wonder if part of that comes from the belief that they—angels—are always watching us and, let’s face it, giving them personality and feelings and sexuality makes the idea of them watching us just a little on the creepy stalker side. Personally, I’m more creeped out by the idea of someone like Metatron from Dogma watching me (in case you’re wondering, I’m totally referencing the first meeting between Bethany and Metatron in the bedroom—think a Ken doll, and you’re on track).
So, yeah, my archangels are lusty. They’re erotic. They have desires. And they’re hot.
Is there really anything wrong with that?
Yeah—I didn’t think so, either.

By LM Pruitt

I fell from the Talmadge Bridge the week before I turned thirty.

I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels.

I chose the demons--and the angels.

I chose the Winged.

Winged Book Two

L.M. Pruitt

In the last year, Joanne Watson has died, fallen in love, fought demons and earned her Wings.

None of that compares to what's coming next....

Life as a member of the Winged isn't perfect--or easy. There's always some new camp drama. There's always a demon ready for a fight. There's always death.

And now there's the Resistance.

Joanne must choose again, this time between her fellow Winged and their burning desire for change or the archangels and the eternal vow she made.

Even in the afterlife, one truth remains--everything ends

L.M. Pruitt

In the last year, Joanne has survived repeated attempts on her life, wholesale slaughter, and the dissolution on the cornerstone of her new existence.

As the line between right and wrong, friend and foe, and good and evil continue to blur, Joanne is forced to face one irrefutable fact.

The hardest demons to fight are the ones you can't see.
