Promises of Virtue is the second book in the Earthbound Angels series by Randi Perrin. We first met Cheryl in Virtue of Death and the story of Sera and Destin. These books are definitely not your typical romance, they are heavenly, sweet romantic stories with a twist of paranormal. I really enjoy Randi’s writing style and her stories are the perfect blend to this genre.
This book is about one sexy, sassy and caring woman, Cheryl, who after giving up her wings for her best friend and love is at a bit of a loss and unsure of herself after this major change in her life. We find Cheryl in Paris who is immersing herself in the sights, fine art and great food. Cheryl doesn’t do relationships but when she meets her sexy neighbour sparks fly. A holiday fling? Maybe. No strings attached? Possibly. Cheryl is certainly surprised when she puts it all together and suddenly realises just who and what her neighbour is. When their worlds collide Cheryl is left wondering what could have been.
Can Cheryl escape his past? Are they worth fighting for? Will her realise what is important before it is too late? Will he be able to keep away? Will past destroy them all?
As with the first book Randi has written a beautiful and funny story. Cheryl is one quirky, and did I mention sassy and yet sweet character. This story is full of love and beautiful friendships and wonder . As with the first book we learn that true love is worth any sacrifice and love is tested when evil throws a curve ball their way. I enjoyed the characters, the plot and the sense of humour. This is one book not to be missed. I hope there is a third book so that I can see what happens to these wonderful and delightful characters.
