knew that could never be. He wasn’t the kind of man that women loved like that.
He was not worthy; he was infinitely flawed—had known it since his dad left
him, and most especially when Darby had first been thrown into his stratosphere
as the ultimate tease. Mallory only served as an exclamation point. It was
Darby. Had always been Darby.

you write? Why did you just up and leave me that summer without a word? I mean,
I know it was a long time ago and it shouldn’t matter now, but I just—”
waiting to do this since he first laid eyes on her in the Red Cross building .
. . hell, maybe since he left her ten years ago.
dam burst, she clutched at his shirt and yanked him closer as a mewling moan
ripped from her throat and she allowed his tongue to slide in and twirl with
hers. He tilted his head and deepened the kiss as far as he could, allowing
every ounce of her to intoxicate him. He traced his fingertips down her throat,
feeling the restless pounding of her pulse.

groan from her as her nails raked down his back.

to consume him in kind as her fingers moved greedily through his hair, holding
him closer still.

And I called too, but you were never home. I eventually gave up when you didn’t
call or write back.” He pressed a kiss to her damp lips because he couldn’t
help himself. “I told you I was crazy about you.”

he’d been head over heels for her, but what did she expect? She hadn’t
acknowledged one of his letters or calls. Life went on and heartbreak was a
two-way street. He’d just sucked his up and bottled it away.

dearly departed. But, the truth was the truth. “No big deal, Darby. After he

A charming romance from start to finish. Shauna Allen’s fresh, new voice makes Inked by an Angel a must read.
The Halo Effect . . . doesn’t disappoint. Shauna has an amazing ability to write compelling characters that are real and relatable.
With a cupid in the mix love finds a way to conquer all things . . . I must say that I loved the book and the characters in the book. I hope we see more from this talented author.
A well-written, clever romance with a twist, Inked by an Angel reminds us that love exists in the unlikeliest places, and that we may need a “guardian angel” to help us find what was meant to be all along.
Holy smoke! Shauna Allen has done it again! I fell in love with the Cupid Chronicles from the first book and that was it for me . . . Shauna did not disappoint with Wounded Wings and from the first two sentences I kid you not I was in love.
