"Waiting On Wednesday" - Halo by Alexandra Adornetto

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection from me is:

Title: Halo
Author: Alexandra Adornetto
Publisher: Atom
Published: End of Jan 2011
ISBN: 1907410759
Author's website: none found

This is Alexandra's UK debut, I already love the cover, looks really romantic and I like the Halo script used, just what's needed before Valentines Day!  I'm trying to include more UK authors in my reading, so pleased to add this one :)

Synopsis from Amazon:
"Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone-especially herself...Is love a great enough power against evil?" 

Sounds intriguing.  I love the idea of angels coming down to do good, the three characters sound interesting, especially Ivy, the healer (like the name).  I fancy reading some good romances leading up to Valentines, so this is one of them :)  It was a hard choice this week, as there's so many drop dead gorgeous books due for release...think my next pick might have to be a steamier one :)

I've heard good and bad things about this one. It is intriguing. Especially if you like angel books.
