SEDUCED BY AN

ANGEL

Book III in the Velvet Lies Series

Publisher:  ePublishing Works! (ebook edition)

Seduced By An Angel is available wherever eBooks are sold.

Reviews:

"Spellbinding! Having read all three books in this series, this is far and away my favorite of them! Ms. deWolfe writes is such a way to draw you into the story from page one and keep you eyebrow-deep until the very last word has been read. Jesse and Sera's story was very beautifully written. Probably my favorite scene was the Cherokee wedding - the detail is so vivid, I felt as thought I was standing there as a witness. And the history of a previous encounter that Jesse and Sera had, wow! I was in tears. I also like the way she incorporates the characters from the two previous books of the series with the storyline in this book. I like being able to keep up with the lives of the other characters. I definitely laughed loudly and cried soundly while reading this book. I HIGHLY recommend her books to anyone who enjoys historical romance." ~ Hopeless Romantic 

"Adrienne does not just write bestsellers or award winners, she writes from the heart. Each book captures readers interest, pulls them in, then leaves readers wanting more. If it is written by Adrienne, one book is never enough. The best part of the book for me is the wedding ceremony. I pictured this so clear in my head, it felt like I was there with Jesse and Sera. It was wonderful. I am personally eagerly waiting for (DEVIL IN TEXAS, Book 1 in Lady Law & The Gunslinger.) Once again, thanks for a wonderful read, Adrienne. The bunnies and I give this book 5 carrots." ~ Suzie Welker, Bunny's Book Reviews

Shady Lady (the Novella) by Adrienne deWolfe

26,000 word prequel to DEVIL IN TEXAS (Book One, Lady Law & the Gunslinger) Fiery singing sensation, Sadie Michelson, thinks falling in love is bad for business—until William "Cass" Cassidy, a hotheaded gunslinger, sets his sights on wooing her.

And that means risking everything—including Cass's love.

Pistols and Petticoats is available wherever eBooks are sold.

Reviews for the novella, Shady Lady:

  • "Loved, loved, LOVED, Shady Lady!  Such a different story, with great characters.  Sadie was so raw and vulnerable and unique. Great heroine. I loved (the use of) the whole Long Branch saloon, and I loved the way Cass and Sadie's story developed. Now I'll have to buy (DEVIL IN TEXAS, Book 1, Lady Law & The Gunslinger) to see what happens next!" ~Barbara Ankrum, #1 Amazon Bestselling Romance Author
  • "I already know and love deWolfe's writing, theVelvet Lies series was what introduced me to the genre. Sadie's character was everything that I love in a (strong) female.The main thing that reading Shady Lady left me with is the desperation to read the next book in the series! I really want to find out what happens with Cass and Sadie." ~ Laura Greenwood, Trips Down Imagination Road
  • "I have been privileged to read several books by Ms. deWolfe. Each and every book is wonderful. The words, plot, story line and characters each sweep me away to a different time and place. Shady Lady was no exception . . . I love reading historical books. Especially when the author takes the time to add facts to the story. In Shady Lady, readers are greeted with Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp and other famous men from the Wild West. This was another 5 star read for me. I only had one problem. It ENDED!" ~ Suzie Welker, KY Bunnies Reviews
