Urban Fantasy At Its Finest
Action, thrills, snark, love…Tricia Skinner’s debut novel ANGEL BAIT has it all.
The first story in what is sure to be a fierce and fabulous urban fantasy series, ANGEL BAIT transports us to a gritty Detroit where humans co-exist with a variety of preternatural creatures–shifters, vampires, angels, demons, and of course, the nephilim, Heaven’s half-human, half-angel assassins.
The author’s tight plot, great pacing and world building sink the reader deep into this dark world where we meet nephilim Jarrid, one hot badass alpha male who doesn’t know what hits him when he teams up with Ionie, a smart, tough-as-nails female journalist. Their sexual tension sizzles and adds a satisfying layer to the overall story (sorry, no plot spoilers here).
The rest of the cast of characters–both good guys and bad guys–are as well-drawn as the hero and heroine. With unique voices and personalities they add a richness and depth to every scene. Solid and natural dialogue and delicious twists and turns in the plot kept me turning pages as did the action scenes, each one well-choreographed and vivid.
To read this urban fantasy goodness for yourself, you can find ANGEL BAIT on Amazon.com.

I do love shifters because they are different and part animal^^ i love to see how they have more honour than simple human despite their difference. now i also must add historicals undead ^^ i love them since i’ve discovered then in Sentinels of New orleans series, why? because most of them are part of the american history not mine ( safe jean ^^ who was a little near my country at a time)so i’m leraning with them and i really like to go check in teh dictonary or the encyclopédy
Since the giveaway is US only don’t enter me ( though i would have loved to win lexi george book 2 or 3 that are on my wishlsit^^)
Thanks for visiting. While vampires are my absolute favorite, I like shifters, too. I especially like the shifters in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. The clan/pack culture she created for her werewolves, leopards, and tigers fascinated me.
Favorite paranormal characters: Starts with the witch Rachel Morgan from Kim Harrison’s books, and pixie Jenks. Then the wizard D.J. in Suzanne Johnson’s The Sentinels of New Orleans series. Then vampires Aidan, Mirren and Will, in Susannah Sandlin’s, Penton Legacy books. And then shifters Jane Yellowrock in Faith Hunter’s series. So, Witches, Wizards, Vampires and Shifters.
I keep hearing great things about the Jane Yellowrock series; it’s been in my TBR pile for ages. I need to bump it to the top. Thanks for stopping by, Roger!
The Jane Yellowrock books have just gotten better with each book. You really should try them. I so want Jane and her “Rickybo” to get together, it would be epic.
Yes, Jenks! Really liked that character in KH’s books. My favorite vamps at the moment are JR Ward’s vamps, especially the Blind King and Zsadist. I’m also quite fond of Amber Belldene’s vamps, particularly Kos.
i forgot Jenk^^;; how could i forget it but as fey i must confess it has been dethroned by Tybalt from teh october daye series^^;;
I am an unabashed vampire hussy. However, a steamy dragon can catch my eye. A death by sex Unseelie prince has also happened upon my radar. I can be found on twitter @kindlesconsort and I gave you a Shout Out. Angela Quarles and I are kindred geeks. I have not read any Lexie George, but she is tops on my to read list at Goodreads.
Hi Stephanie! Geek Power! *high five* Thanks for coming by and helping us spread the word on our new venture! And I’m glad you’re unabashed, as there’s no shame here 🙂
Hi Stephanie, Thanks for the tweet and *yay vampires*! Definitely my lifelong favorite supernatural creature. 🙂
Hi, Stephanie! Thrilled to be on your to-read list. 🙂
Lexi – sorry I misspelled your name in my first post. All the excitement of the contest and I didn’t proof read. I follow you on twitter, so I should know better.
You can spell me anyway you like, as long as it’s something nice!
Hi Stephanie, You are the winner of the 5-book giveaway! Congrats!
So excited. Will post reviews. Looking forward to following your blog. I think my email is updated.
I love Vamps, Angels, Were’s,Demons, Shapeshifters….damn do I have to pick just one? Okay I love them all! * grins wickedly* 😛
We’re an equal opportunity blog–no need to choose! 🙂
LOL, no you can love them all, of course. I do enjoy reading about all inhabitants of the paranormal world, but have to confess vampires continue to top my list. Though, lately, mermen have put in an appearance (my current WiP features mermen and mermaids). But they’re all so fascinating, right? Love, love love paranormal! 🙂
Hmmm, there’s just something about getting down and dirty with an angel that just makes me feel a tad bit wicked…. wicked is good.
hehe, Sebella–if you like THAT idea, then you’ll love Angel Bait!
“Hear the drummer get wicked…” — oops, sorry, an electronic music moment, LOL.
Hi Sebella, yes! Wicked rules. If you like wicked angels, I recommend Larissa Ione’s Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series. Good and naughty angels abound. And the Horsemen (and woman) of the Apocalypse. Good times. 🙂
My kind of reader. How I managed to write this book without succumbing to a wing fetish….
I second Celia’s recommendation here–Angel Bait is an awesome, fast paced read, and the angels are, um, well, I don’t want to give too much away, but they are full of hot sexy secrets. That said, I am a vampire fan all the way!
Yay for vampires! 🙂
I’ve loved Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, with the archangels. Very sexy! I also love Rachel Morgan and Jenks (Kim Harrison), Adam Hauptman and Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs), Kate Daniels and Curran (Ilona Andrews). I second Roger’s comment about Jane Yellowrock (Faith Hunter). Another favorite is Seanan McGuire’s October Daye – I love that series because of how it portrays the dangerous world of the Fae.

Thanks for the great recommendations. More items for my TBR list. In addition to Larissa Ione’s angels, I also enjoyed Sylvia Day’s Renegade Angels. And I’m sooo looking forward to more angel assassin badass goodness from Tricia S.
Since vampires were the first paranormal creatures I ever read about I have a soft spot for them. But I’ll read about pretty much any type of paranormal.
Agreed. And thanks for the FB shout out. 🙂
Liked on facebook
Thanks for the shout out, Sandy! And yes, there’s nothing like a first love 🙂
Gosh so hard to pick just one but my top favorite paranormal creatures are werewolves, shifters (of all kinds lol), and faeries. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

HI Van, Faeries can be quite badass themselves. I enjoyed Laurell K Hamilton’s Fae warriors in her Meredith Gentry series. I have some Fae warriors in my current (merman) WiP. A lot of fun to write them.
and thanks for the FB/Twitter shout outs!
I love pretty any/all supernatural types/creatures! honest! As long as I can get lost in the story, is all I care about 😉
That’s how I am too, Erin. If the writing and world building is good, I’ll go anywhere with the author 🙂
So true. It’s fun to immerse oneself in wonderfully built worlds.
While I do read and love them all. I am still partial to vampires.
