Dan Colton is the scarred hero and Tess Lesange is the willing submissive and his best friend. They share everything, even their kinkier secrets. Tess wants so much more, but she’s convinced Dan only sees her as the ‘brainy analyst’ in the office next door. Dan’s scarred reality leaves him unsure of how to relate to the world without his physical calling card, his angel’s face.
Dan and Tess have stolen my heart, mind and soul!
I read this the first time in one sitting (yes, I said the first time!). After I finished, I just sat in my chair re-living it and I immediately started from the beginning and read it again!
I’m finding the words to describe this book hard to come by! I am a true and loyal Angel Payne fan and the WILD Boys series has always been my favorite, but A Wilder Kind of Love is now my favorite by far of all of Angel’s books.
The story just pulls you in and you focus on Dan and Tess individually, but also as a couple. Their insecurities, their demons, their desires and most importantly, their love and devotion for one another. In this book, Angel’s writing surpasses anything she’s written before – the descriptors, the emotion, the banter, all of it is just so perfect, it pulls you in and connects you with every single character. It was so good to ‘see’ some of the others from the series – I just love these people!
USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and French kissing.
She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.
Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), and the popular W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, as well as several stand-alone titles. The Cimarron series launched in 2015 and will continue in 2016.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and gym-ratting (where her skin does NOT look as amazing as this airbrushed picture!).
