Shattering Halos by Sunniva Dee 
(Halos #1) 
Publication date: February 24th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

Synopsis:
I traded my death for love. I wasn’t given a choice. His decision has caught up with us, so now I am a living, breathing catalyst to war between Heaven and Hell.

The violations he committed saved my life. Since the collision, he’s appeared everywhere. In my hospital room, my school, even my house. He shows up in my paintings, my drawings, in all of my art projects. I can’t stop thinking about him.

He says his name is Gabriel, and he doesn’t understand what’s happening to him. He doesn’t know how I can see him or why he wants me in ways that should be impossible for a Celestial.

My obsession grows. I need him to hold me, kiss me—give all of himself. For every day he protects me, the consequences loom darker and taller. Soon, they’ll crash down on us.

The war is about to begin.

Excerpt 

The sunrise woke me, and I remembered right away. I peeked between my lashes, scouring the room for him. The stranger was still there, perched like a shimmering bird on a visitor’s chair by the bed. He hummed, at ease without knowing me, or ever having introduced himself.
Frowning, I took in the insanity of him in daylight. After all these hours, he didn’t seem sleepy or bored, and I watched him pucker his beyond-belief lips as if preparing to whistle.
Was he a product of my mind? I wanted to reach out and touch him—find out if he was solid. As if in response to my thoughts, the humming stopped. He rotated, and I closed my eyes before he noticed me awake.
The haze of the coma had retreated, and I was regaining muscle control. Renewed vigor trickled back in, which seemed to nurture my imagination. My thoughts swirled and fantasized, insisting that this stranger had energized me.
In spite of the fascination I had with him, I wanted to open my eyes, pick up the pieces of my existence. I longed to reclaim life, but I couldn’t because his company held me hostage.
A knock on the door announced the arrival of the nurses.
“Good morning, Gaia,” the one named Rose sang out. “How did you sleep?” She didn’t wait for an answer, and I realized I’d heard her say that before.
“So much dust. Doesn’t the new cleaning lady do the windowsills?” The younger-sounding nurse was grumbling from over by the window. Briefly, I considered how the dust could have remained in place with him sitting there.
“Not sure, Maria. Hasn’t she been out sick for a couple of days?”
Instead of exchanging pleasantries with my “guest” as I’d expected, they kept murmuring between themselves. Water splashed in a basin.
“Time for your bath, Gaia!” Rose spoke in the high-pitched voice reserved for house pets and babies, so I knew the words were for me before I heard my name.
No, no. Time to panic!
My eyes shot open. I swept the room, my breath catching as I detected him perching on a different chair on the opposite side. A golden knee protruded from a hole in his jeans. Did he not have other clothes? Those bright irises oozed of an innocence I didn’t buy. I lifted a weak arm and pointed.
“Wait. Make him leave first.”
Like in an old, silent film, his movements fast-forwarded several frames. Without warning, he stood so close that the sleeve of his shirt skimmed my arm.
His eyes pinned mine, and I couldn’t break away. I stared back, a chemical reaction taking place in me as I plunged further and further into his gaze.
What an eerie magnetism. I liked guys as much as the next girl, but holy moly. What was this—“obsession at first sight?” I, Gaia Samuelle, was doing a nosedive … heart first! A gasp escaped me, and his eyebrows arched in astonishment.


AUTHOR BIO

I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.

I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.

I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
