Sarah: Laney’s Angel by Gay N. Lewis
Beautiful, talented, and stubborn, architect Laney Taylor battles her attraction to handsome, wealthy, but mulish homebuilder Cannon Carlson. After all, he is her employer, and business and pleasure don’t mix, do they? When Sarah, the blonde, blue-eyed, dyslexic angel reaches Houston with her assignment to bring these obstinate people together, she faces a major challenge, especially since Laney is threatened by a mysterious stalker who plans to kill her.
When the Commander of Heaven’s Host dispatches the seasoned warrior angel, Tomas to Earth with divine instructions to protect Laney, Tomas wonders if a hit-or-miss Sarah will get in his way. That charming, little angel loves red stilettos, can’t fly in the same direction twice, and craves cheeseburgers. When the need to appear human presents itself, Sarah manages one fashion gaffe after another. Angels in The Heavenlies are still twittering about Sarah’s goofs on her first mission to Earth.
Known in the upper realm as Heaven’s Little Romance Angel, Sarah has no sentinel duties, but can Tomas succeed in his duty to protect Laney with a bumbling angel who wants to help? Can Sarah unite Cannon and Laney romantically together?
Oh merciful heavens! What will Sarah do this time?
Where did Gay get the idea for this series?
I was writing women’s fiction, not romance, and not getting anywhere with it. I noticed the popularity of paranormal fiction. I don’t know anything about vampires or werewolves, but I know a little about angels. I also love writing from the Christian prospective. A dyslexic, bumbling angel gives me an opportunity to use humor and fantasy in a romance genre. In the second book, Sarah: Laney’s Angel, I write an element of suspense. With Sarah, I’m able to incorporate a variety of features.
Romance, Inspiration, Christian, Humor, Fantasy
Actors to play the parts
Kate Hudson would make an adorable Sarah. She’s blonde and petite…also cute and has a tremendous sense of comedy timing.
How long did it take to write the first draft?
I’m spending about six months on each book.
What other books would I compare to my books?
Debbie Macomber writes Christmas books about three fun-loving angels, and they are from a Christian prospective. Although, it’s a different genre, I also enjoy Janet Evanovich for her humor. I don’t compare to these great authors, but I hope my writing has a few similar elements.
