Title: Love & Redemption (Agents in Love - Book 2)
Author: Chantel Rhondeau
Will be released: April 18, 2014
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Swearing off sex is anything but easy for bad girl Shelley Daniels. Especially after she bumps into super sexy Gavin Hart, who’s running for his life.

All Gavin wanted was fast money and a chance to start fresh. Now this jewelry thief is the target of professional assassins, ones he witnessed murder a woman in cold blood.

Gavin drags Shelley into the world she was desperate to escape, full of secret agents, assassin plots, and a frantic plan to stop a terrorist group from perfecting a new weapon. Gavin also attempts to steal what’s left of her jaded heart while they hide from the murderers.

The killers strike again, drawing the pair back to the city. When a child’s life hangs in the balance, Shelley and Gavin have a chance to make up for prior sins, but finding redemption means risking everything—including their chance for true love.

If you missed the first book in the series Love & Deception (Agents in Love - Book 1) now is the time to get caught up with Nick and Carlie's story.

What if everything you believed in was a lie?

In hiding for six years, Carlie Hollis is tired of running. All she wants is to stay in Sayle, Washington and make a success of her struggling delicatessen. Because of her past, she’s suspicious of anyone who takes an interest in her.

Nick Kendall works as a spy in a top-secret government operation, protecting innocent people from danger. Sent to Sayle on a mission to infiltrate a suspected terrorist organization, Nick finds himself attracted to Carlie, an alleged key player of the group.

Despite her misgivings, Carlie develops feelings for the handsome stranger, believing he is there to help her. But when Nick finds evidence of her guilt, he’s given orders to do the unthinkable—eliminate the target, one he's fallen hopelessly in love with. Will he follow orders...or become hunted himself?

#GuestPost #Author Emerald Barnes on Entertaining Angels #inspirational #fiction

I am super thrilled to show you the beautiful cover for my newest and upcoming novel, Entertaining Angels.  Again, my cover artist was Natasha Brown, and she is super talented.  She brought my disjointed vision to life, and I don't think I'll ever be able to thank her properly. 
I can't wait to publish it, which I'm hoping will be in May.  That's what I'm estimating anyway.  But, I couldn't wait any longer to show you my beautiful cover!

About Entertaining Angels:
Madison Andrews can’t face her reflection in the mirror.  All she sees is a big, fat nobody.  Yet, deep inside she longs for something more, something that’s not skin deep.

Along comes Zach, the new guy in school.  He’s smoking hot and totally out of her league.  She somehow catches his eye, and he makes her feel beautiful for once.  But just as she gets close to Zach, her nerdy best friend, Chase, won’t let Madison doubt her true beauty, no matter how many meals she skips.

Even as Madison begins to realize that she is more than what she thinks, darker forces are at work, darker than the lies and mocking from her peers, stopping her from amounting to her full potential.  Can Madison find true happiness in her own skin?

Are you a book reviewer?  If so, please sign up for an ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) of my novel here.

A Message from Emerald Barnes:
When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see?  Do you see a beautiful person staring back at you, or do you see the faults?  The things you want to change about yourself?  Chances are, if you’re like me, you see what needs to be changed.  Are the wrinkles bothering you?  Dark circles?  Acne?  Untamable hair? Do you need to do something to shrink your pores?  Lose the chubby cheeks and double chin?  What about your body?  Do you think you need some work?  Flabby belly? Stretch marks?  What about your arms?  Do they jiggle when you wave at someone?

Sounds harsh right?  But chances are we’ve had these all or most of these thoughts.  If you haven’t, you’re extremely lucky.  Most women, and some men, have a hard time facing their reflection.  They don’t like what they see, but it’s important that you understand no matter what you may hate about yourself, someone loves it.

The way you look doesn’t define the person you are.  You can be model-perfect, but if your personality isn’t beautiful, you won’t be beautiful.  Beauty is about more than outer appearance.  It’s about believing in yourself, believing that you’re a beautiful person.  You need to exude confidence because you ARE beautiful.

A person is beautiful in God’s sight when they become gentle and kind in spirit.  "...let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." - 1 Peter 3:4

This is true beauty, your gentle and quiet spirit.  True beauty comes from within.  If you’re kind and gentle and you believe that you’re a beautiful person, then you will be.  Your outward appearance shouldn’t have any bearing on the way you see yourself.

Sure, there is nothing wrong with wanting to be beautiful.  It’s okay to use wrinkle creams and go on a diet.  It’s okay to be healthy, but changing yourself on the outside won’t make you happy.  You have to change from the inside to see a change on the outside.

Today, I hope you realize how beautiful you are.  Look in the mirror and name your best features, and no, it can’t be just your eyes.  Smile and say, “I’m beautiful,” and I pray that you believe it because it’s made a world of difference in my attitude.  I hope it does yours, too.

About Emerald:
Emerald Barnes graduated with a B.A. in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing at Mississippi University for Women.  She resides in a small town in Mississippi and has the accent to prove it. 

She mainly writes suspense/thrillers in the YA genre, but she dabbles in other genres and her books are enjoyed by all ages!   She's constantly working on new novels and has more ideas than she knows what to do with.  She blogs which takes up more of her time than she anticipates but loves it so very much!  She's also a volunteer at the World Literary Cafe which is amazing, and she is a crazy grammar nazi who proofreads novels!

She's an auntie to three beautiful nieces and two handsome nephews who take up the other half of her time, but she couldn't imagine spending her time in any other way! 

She's a Whovian, a little bit of a nerd, a reader, a writer, and a family-oriented person.  God is number One in her life, and she thanks Him continuously for His love and favor.
