Description from the publisher:

Rafael is one of God’s Four Winds, the Archangel of Healing. He has answered the countless prayers for healing of loved ones, wondering what it was about the emotion that made humans willing to sacrifice so much.

Grace is a lifeguard who has been on Rafe’s radar since she lost a little boy three years ago. What she doesn’t realize is the green haze that comes over her during a rescue is actually a divine presence who’s about to give up his celestial body to become a very real entity in her life.

While Grace is trying to overcome her own demon, Rafe is discovering his own sexuality, but there’s a darker presence making himself known. The Deceiver wants what Rafe is getting, and he’ll do whatever it takes to have her



This is the second book in the Four Winds series.  Though I was told, and agree, that these are stand-alone books that could be read in any order, there is a visit with Uriel and Heather from book one.  I believe reading these in order will help you understand better their interaction.


The second of God’s archangels has been set on the path for his retirement.  The Boss, in board shorts and a Hawaiian shirt, has chosen Grace for His healer, Rafael.  Unfortunately, Grace is afraid to fall in love because of the relationship her mother has.  Grace does not want to lose her own identity to any man.  As always, the Deceiver, Satan, wants what his brother has been promised.


This second book was even better than the first in the series.  I was holding my breath several times waiting to see what would happen next.  Would Grace get out of her own way and allow Rafe to love her with his whole heart?  Could she admit her own love?  Would she succumb to the lies of Damien?  There was also the fun, flirting, and silliness, not only between the two of them, but also with her other roommates, Nicole and Bree.


I live in one of the Hurricane states and I have experienced first-hand the frightening effects of those horrible storms. I lost a child to the first of the four storms that crossed the Florida peninsula in 2004.  I remember all too vividly sitting through the other three storms and waiting for them to pass.  Reading the chapters dealing with Hurricane Ethel, a category four storm, was terrifyingly real for me.  I applaud Ms. Conley for the heart-stoppingly detailed description of emotion and storm.  (For anyone wondering, our home is not on a flood-plain and we received no damage beyond the loss of our beautiful Camille.)


My son is a lifeguard; I hope reading about Grace’s experiences with rescues just may make me a more sympathetic mother.  I know that I am grateful to all emergency responders.


I absolutely loved this story and I am looking forward to reading book three next… and already anticipating the frustration of waiting for book four.  The good thing is that I know it will be worth the wait.  Ms. Conley is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie authors!
