About Lynne Stevie

Hi fellow readers. I was raised on a small farm in the Midwest, at a time when there were only 3 television stations. Oh the horror!

Growing up miles away from any other families gave me the opportunity to hone my imagination and plenty of time to read.

After earning a bachelor degree in Criminology I married my college sweetheart and traded farm country for the sugar white beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Now I spend my time writing and taking care of my three children, two dogs, one guinea pig and my terrific husband.

This book is great, it grabs you from the start and won't let go,I read it in one setting. I really enjoyed being in Lexi Lewis’ point of view and learning what was going on just as she was. The way Lynne writes you feel you are in Lexi's head and experiencing everything like she does. Lexi runs a PI firm and while on a case one night she is attacked and her life takes on a very strange twist, starting with strange dreams, then immortals, and a guardian canine She has to learn who she can trust and what to believe. With a twist on the vampires and angel story line and a touch of ancient Egypt throw in it is a unique and wonderfully written debut novel and I can't wait for the next book.

Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Even after reading the very accurate synopsis, I was unprepared to be so engrossed in such an intense mystery thriller after only a few pages. I really enjoyed being in Lexi Lewis’ point of view and learning what was going on just as she was. While being marketed as a PNR/UF-mystery, I think it should be the other way around because the mystery & suspense elements are so strong, I feel it is more a suspenseful thriller with paranormal elements. I really liked the intricacy of the mystery and the pacing of revealing Lexi’s hidden heritage. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters, their relationships to each other and to Lexi. But for me Lexi was the overall weak link. I didn’t buy her actions. I was perpetually told of the closeness to some characters and the estrangement with others yet the behavior was the exact opposite. That’s either a betrayal of the character or a betrayal of the reader – either way it’s a disconnect and affects the perception of all other actions. (Easier to talk to strangers ok, but IMO it went so far as to marginalize the characters that were supposed to be important to her and elevated the ones that were not.) That is not to say that Lexi did not have some redeeming characteristics such as great fighter instincts, resourcefulness and a willingness to do the unconventional. Lexi’s full life opens the door to additional adventures and development of the secondary characters which could be interesting.

This book is one of those that grips you from the first page and won't let you go!

Written with a unique writting style and in a way that puts you right in the head of Lexi makes this book flow with ease. It will be addictive and if you do manage to put the book down, you will just be thinking about it until you pick it back up!

Lexi is a lovable character, strong, loving with strong morals and a good sense of humour and passion. Her life is great. She loves her Husband, brother, friends and her job. Until she is attached after working undercover on a case, her life as she knows it is turned upside down.

The attack kicks in a superhuman power that Lexi doesn't understand or didn't know she had. And unable to explain certain things that happened during the attack throws her mind into a spin.

Searching the answers to understand whats going on is not as straight forward as Lexi thought. With secrets being kept, questions unanswered, those close to her with alterior motives for her power and immortals out to kill her for it throws her world into chaos.

Not knowing who to trust or to believe she is part of a prophecy to be mated to sexy Ellasar an Egypcian God (who i loved), who meets her in her dreams, Lexi's salvation comes in a form of a womans best friend, Zeke the dog, a guardian to protect her.

The book made me laugh in parts and also hot under the collar in a steamy scene, i would loved to have seen a bit more steamy scenes, but this is my personal opinion.

The book ends with a promise of a sequel and i very much look forward to reading more from Lynne. (And secretly hope that a true (steamy) romance will bloom With Lexi and Ellasar.)

A book for Adults!

This was an amazing book that I honestly could not put down. The characters are all very likable, I love the sexual tension between Lexie and some of the other characters (who shall remain nameless), and the entire plot was unique. Watching Lexie grow and embrace her powers was wonderful and I truly hope that there will be a sequel soon to continue on with the story. Highly recommend this book, great read!

Review by: Yaz on Sep. 16, 2012 :
A strong willed female character.
An unknown past fills her present and future.
A story full of mystery and danger.
Deception, passion and immortal creatures.

This story is filled with everything that draws me to a novel. It has a beautiful, strong, independent female character. She is a successful business woman. She runs her own private investigator firm. A case starts the debacle of her life. She finds herself a victim of an attack that changes her perception of life. She discovers she is more than human and no one will give her a straight answer. Who can she trust? Her grandmother seems to have lost her mind. Her husband, who only wants to protect her. The man that comes through her dreams drives her insane.

Her life is changing and she can't stop it. The story is full of twists of fate and unsolved mysteries. It is full of cliff hangers and the end... (well I just can't give it away)... lets just say wow!!!

I can't wait to read more stories by Lynne Stevie
I can only hope a sequel to this novel is already printed somewhere, just waiting for a release date or I think I will go crazy waiting to read more about Alexandria Lewis.

I received this book from the Author for my honest review.

That being said this is a wonderful début novel from Lynne Stevie. Angel's Kiss follows the strange twist that occurs in the life of Alexandria. Lexie is a "happily married" private detective who suddenly finds herself faced with a world she had no idea even existed. A world filled with danger at every turn. A world filled with beings such as immortals and angels and weapons as old as time that only a Dark Angel can wield.

This book is a mystery along with being a paranormal/fantasy. This story grabs your attention from the very first page and the timing and character creation is fabulous! The only problem I saw was that it ended. I actually yelled at the book saying NO! You can't end now! What is going to happen next! NOOOOOOOOOOO! I can honestly say that her next book needs to come out NOW so I can find out. Yes I know I'm not very patient am I? But it was just that good.

I don't want to go into too many details about the story itself and give the plot or the mystery away but suffice it to say you will be shocked at the twists and turns that happen in Lexie's life. And her husband... Grrrrrr is all I can say... When something looks too good to be true it probably is... This book had just the right amount of blood and gore to get you caught up in the nightmare her life turned into and just enough sex to make you go oh wow. The entire book was well thought out and well written.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery with that paranormal flavour.

Note - I received this ebook for free in exchange for a honest review.

A PI attacked, strange dreams, immortals, and a guardian canine. These and more add up to one thrillingly amazing debut novel from Lynne Stevie.

Lexie, our main character is a private detective with a surprising heritage. This heritage rears its head when she's attacked one night.
The characters are so real that you're drawn in immediately.

I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for the next installment.

I absolutely loved this book! With a unique story-line
on angels and vampires, and slight elements of the
ancient egyptian era, this book had a truly wonderful
and captivating aspect that I do not always see in
many other books. The main characters are portrayed
as very strong but also remain vulnerable as a true
person would be.

Once I started reading, I could not put it down! I am
truly impressed by the author's way of writing ... It
truly makes me feel as if I am a part of the story
itself and holds me captivated and definitely wanting more! :)

I do hope to see further sequels coming in the future from this author with this story-line, and possibly different story-lines in the future as well. I look forward to following this author on her journey in writing books! :)

I enjoyed this book. Although it seemd to go on and on at some parts, I liked the main story. It confused me and t still does but the intensity of everything going on in Alex's life was what I enjoyed most. I hope there is a boook 2 to clear everything up

Review by: Lynnette Mohr on Aug. 30, 2012 :
As an avid fan of sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal I was certainly expecting a different story.. it is about vampires, but not... I have to say I could't quit reading it! I usually have 2 or 3 books on the go at once and this time I couldn't put it down for another book!
It hooked you right from the beginning and kept a tight hold all the way thru to the end, when it hooked you again and left you breathing hard saying "What? it can't end now? what happened? how will she solve this?"
I am on pins and needles now till the next instalment comes out. It will be the first buy on my list!!!
Thanks Lynne for a wonderful read and a fantastic story that kept me enthralled from beginning to end.

I was given the chance to read this book. I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. The writer Lynne Stevie has a definite way of words. The way it was written is one of the reasons I couldn't put it down. Her characters all held their own. If you love paranormal you will love this. If you love romance you will love it as well. It's the best of both worlds. I am looking forward to reading the next novel and any future novel's she writes.

The main Character Alexandria is a riot. She has the no holds bar attitude. She is witty and I admire her. She lives in a normal way of life. Until one night throws everything she knows out the window. Her world is literally turned upside down and sideways. From Happiness, to deceit, and to just plan rude. I laughed I got mad and I also got sad. Lynne Stevie wrote so well that I felt all the emotions that the main character felt.

Hello, I am Anita Kingsberry this is a review for:

Lynne Stevie is a paranormal writer. She is a wonderfully inventive, electrifying and humorous writer all rolled into a pleasurable package. Angel’s Kiss is filled with sensuality, betrayal, and intrigue couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed her style of writing. I would highly recommend this novel. The novel was an exhilarating page turner and I cannot wait to read her next novel.

If you love to Sexy Angels, that sort resemble vampires you will enjoy this novel. The story takes place in a Gulf-side resort town. The main character’s name Alexandria Hayes-Lewis, where she runs a family owned detective agency. She has a group of fellow investigators, a husband, brother and a Grandmother in her life.

Alexandria is following a client around one night and falls into an otherworldly reality. A reality she didn’t know she belonged too. This world has Immortal beings wanting to take people’s life force to remain immortal and ancient weapon, the only weapon able to kill an Immortal. There are Angels that can move ungodly fast, are incredibly strong and have a taste for blood and life forces. It has just the right amount of blood, gore and sex to make this story wonderfully captivating. It was a Good Read
