Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Monsters & Angels by Anne Marie Andrus @MonstersnAngels @XpressoTours

Monsters & Angels
Anne Marie Andrus
Publication date: October 11th 2017
Genres: Historical, New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Fledgling nurse Sorcha Alden knew she had the skills to save lives, but she never dreamed that her own life would be the one in danger.

Driven by tragedy to honor her family name, Sorcha embarks on a journey that takes her from the bleak but familiar streets of New York, through the sultry and seductive city of New Orleans, and into the brutal jungles of Nepal. Forging friendships and carrying on her mother’s mission of healing was her dream. Plunging into a love affair with the mysterious Dr. Ashayle could have been a fairytale.

Being murdered and waking up as a blood-thirsty monster—became her living nightmare.

Torn away form a life that had just begun, Sorcha returns to New Orleans as a newborn vampire, forced to start over in a cutthroat underworld of devilry and decadence. Complicated politics, bitter rivals and jealous ancestors stand between her and the promises she’s still determined to keep.

In a realm where the boundary between good and evil is as murky as the Mississippi River and immortal does not mean invincible, will Sorcha ever risk her shattered heart and love again? Can the magical harmony of the Crescent City give her enough courage to fulfill her eternal destiny?

My Review:

Sorcha Alden graduates top of her class from a school in New York. Sorcha is finally able to full fill her dream of following in her mother’s footsteps as a nurse. When Sorcha’s mother passes away unexpectedly she decides to take a job in New Orleans working with nuns and a doctor that only does the night shift.

Sorcha loves her new job and her new friends then she gets the opportunity to go work in Nepal. Once in Nepal Sorcha is attacked by a rare breed of vampires and left for dead but she is saved by the good doctor.

Back in New Orleans she lives the life of luxury with her new family but she misses Vyr the doctor she met in Nepal and fell in love with when she was still human. Sorcha has had to leave her old life behind and all her friends.

Sorcha has three males and a female that want to share her bed. One she wants no part of and she tells him straight up how it is. And the other one is her maker he knows how she feels about him and that she is in love with Vyr and he understands this and tries to help her be with Vyr as much as possible.

Sorcha has to stay in hiding most of the time or at the least have someone with her at all times as there are vampires that are looking for her and want her dead. But Sorcha being the feisty person that she is takes more chance than she should and gets herself into a help of trouble on more than one occasion. Sorcha is strong willed and likes to do as she please no matter what the cost may be in the end.

If you like to read about vampires then let me suggest that you give Monsters & Angels you will love it. Come follow Sorcha on her journey from New York to Nepal to New Orleans and becoming a vampire somewhere in between.
