Release day: Unforsaken

14 January 2019

Today is the official release of Unforsaken by Cassie Laelyn (ebook and paperback, The Wild Rose Press). Here’s the blurb:

One choice: save his soul … or her life?

Hidden deep in the Snowy Mountains, lives a brotherhood of immortal Guardians, banished from the Heavens.

After centuries of exile, Head Guardian Raven can taste Hell. One wrong move could destroy his soul. When Fate assigns him a female mortal to protect, his forbidden desire becomes a distraction he can’t afford. Giving in to temptation risks plummeting into the fiery pits of Hell, dragging her along with him.

Tayla Eason is on the run, escaping a horrific attack on her life. When she lands in the arms of the sexy, alluring man who saved her, the shadows of her past swiftly close in. But when Fate throws a twist, Tayla’s forced to choose between saving Raven’s soul or fleeing before the creatures strike again.

In an ultimate test of love, the two must battle against the almighty Fate. But will it be enough to save them both?

Cassie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Unforsaken is the first book in The Fallen Guardians series, a paranormal romance set in the Snowy Mountains, Australia. Raven’s character came to me almost seven years ago when I was sitting outside chasing the sun on a rather chilly winter’s day. I pictured Raven crouching on the rooftop of the building behind me, his majestic black wings unfurled behind his back, scanning the park below. The image was so clear it sent shivers down my spine. I even spun around to see if he was real! Five years later, the image of Raven on that rooftop still plagued me, so I wrote it down … then, as though I’d opened a doorway to another world, other characters appeared and The Fallen Guardians series unfolded. I’ll always be thankful for that first image of Raven, which became the opening scene for Unforsaken.

You can find out more about this book at Cassie’s website or buy it from Amazon.

To celebrate her debut release, Cassie would like to give one lucky ARRA member a signed copy of Unforsaken. To enter, just comment on the blog post and tell her why you love reading paranormal romance! (The giveaway is now closed. The winner was Alyssa M).

    I have just read this amazing first in the Fallen Guardians series, and now I am eagerly awaiting the second exciting instalment! Thank you to NetGalley for approving my request for Unforsaken, and giving me the opportunity to try this brand new author. I am also thrilled to learn that Cassie Laelyn is not only Australian, but lives in my neck of the woods…..Queensland. Congratulations on a fabulous first Cassie, I’m so happy to have read your book.

    I was lucky enough to read before release for an honest review. I can still hear the snapping of wings in my mind and honestly cannot wait to read the next in series. Great visual scenes and well fleshed characters. Cassie I am willing to wait to purchase my own and get your signature personally. I just wanted to brag how great your first book is.
