Meet Jaime. Dark Angel. Mother. Betrayed.

Everyone has a dark side where their inner demons roam. When the devils of our nightmares murder in their sleep, only one can stop them.

Jaime Connor was once one of the mightiest archangels in heaven. Sent to earth to stop demons from claiming another victim in their sleep, she has battled far too long. Tired of all the killing, she awaits the demon who will overpower her and send her back to heaven.

Yet her life lingers on and a dream she can't remember plagues her thoughts. Only remnants of her memory remain in the image of a gorgeous demon who circled her before the kill--the scent of Ireland on his breathe, a brogue on his tongue, and the sea in his penetrating eyes.

The demon must have died. She never would have woken if he hadn't. That's how it works. How it's always worked. So why did he appear in her world the next day? And why is he trying to seduce her? Will he be the fated one to finally steal the life of the strongest dark angel the world has ever known? If she's lucky, that will be all he steals.

"With compelling characters, interesting subplots and plenty of paranormal action Purgatory's Angel is the kind of book that keeps one up at night! Kudos to Ms. Hughes-Millman for some of the most well-written action scenes this reviewer has ever had the pleasure of reading!" - InD'tale ★★★★

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q: Why do you write?

A: For years, ideas and dreams have haunted my mind throughout my days. Always the daydreamer, I finally decided to put my thoughts into written form. Writing, for me, is a way to drive the demons from my mind, to find peace in my sleep. So, when you ask what writing is for me, I would say it is the mediator between the sleeping world and the hours I'm awake; the fidget spinner that keeps my mind sane.

Q: What books do you write?

A: Urban Fantasy Romance is my genre. Adult stories with a dark twist, that give me the freedom to create what, to some, may be unthinkable. I write dark stories with brooding characters who are deeply flawed. I don't like protagonists who are too pure. I can't find interest in anyone without a past. And the same must be true of my characters in my stories. The struggle for them is real. The romance is unrestrained. And the passion that they feel for whatever steals their attention, or steels their soul, should bleed across the page.

  2. RESURRECTION'S ANGEL (book 2)

Q: Why should readers pick up your books?

A: Not every reader should pick up my stories. Anyone who is looking for a clean romance with a pure protagonist is looking on the wrong shelf if they've selected one of my novels. If you are looking for a story that will lead you down a dark, twisted path, one you hadn't expected to find, my Dark Angel novels are perfect for you. If you like romance, suspense and dark twists with a little humor thrown in, you'll love the Dark Angel Series.

Hughes-Millman Dark Angels fight demons in their sleep. Piques your interest, sounds original, doesn't it? It did to me when I read the blurb on Library Thing and I was 'awarded' one of the books. The first few chapters were a bit slow, laying out some of the base of how Jamie fights demons in her dreams. Stick with it, I did and was hooked. The more I read, the more involved I got. It's a well written, complex story with twists and turns ... sometimes more questions than answers, but it's all revealed as the chapters go by. It's interesting how waking and sleeping worlds are weaved together. The demons in the dreams are really human's with evil souls. When a Dark Angel kills one in the dream world, they die in the waking world, and if a demon kills someone in the dreams, they die in the real world. Very interesting concept and pretty original. Jaime is a strong, believable, multilayered main character, with the right amount of snark that sometimes hides her sadness and pain that's just below the surface. All the characters are believable with multiple facets to their personalities. Who is the 'good guys', the 'bad guys' or are they both at one point or the other in the story? Actually liked it that it kept you guessing, revealing more and more as you go along. And there are surprises... but that's as much as I can go, spoilers you know. There's really only one sex scene in the book or really one chapter. It's not over the top, and fits nicely into the storyline. Skinny: Slow start leads into a "I don't want to put it down" story with twist turns and surprises. Complex, believable, love them-hate them characters. You take away the thought that no matter how bad things get you fight the good fight because it's the right thing to do.

The Purgatorys Angel...

The "Purgatory's Angel" was a well written, intriguing story with it's unique plot revolving around demons, fallen angels, angels , and humans. What makes the story even more magnificent was its strong willed lead character, Jaime. It's always a thrill seeing a strong woman in stories such as these. I look forward to the rest of the series!

As it happens, I was r...

As it happens, I was reading Purgatory's Angel alongside From Above by Norah McClintock (review coming up next), which equates to one seriously over-written book alongside a minimalistically-styled book. If you're a writer or a wannabe writer, this is just the kind of situation you could delight in because, while the books are from two different genres, they provide such clear-cut examples of how not to write and how to write, respectively. First, let me share the plot of Purgatory's Angel. Jaime is a dark angel who has been sent to earth to kill demons. She does this by entering their dreams and killing them. Lately though, she's been delighting a little too much in playing the cat-and-mouse game, teasing her prey, and hasn't really been paying attention to what's going on. Collin is a mystery. He has a scent like Irish greenery and the famous Irish moors outside of Dublin and bright green eyes to match. He's intriguing, but Jaime thinks that he may be a demon, stalking her in her dreams and planning to kill her. While I was reading, several things occurred to me. (Yes, this tends to happen when a book has too much exposition, but we'll get back to that in a moment.) The plot reminded me of an old Dennis Quaid movie, Dreamscape, in which he plays a psychic who is able to go into the dreams of other people. After I was done thinking about that movie in comparison to this novel, I then thought about Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning and how that novel and the subsequent ones in the series define sexual tension in paranormal books with the relationship of Mac and Jericho. So why was I thinking about Darkfever? Comparison. You see, Purgatory's Angel desperately wants to be as hot as Darkfever, but it can't happen without building up tension between characters. And, there's also the fact that if you have your characters become intimate while she's still all banged up, the reader is only going to question how this can be sexy instead of really painful. (Yes, I know that there are people who enjoy that, but it was not actively stated in the novel. ) The beginning of Purgatory's Angel has too much prose and it's told in present tense, which in shorter pieces doesn't strike me as jarring, but here it did. Also, the prose contains a lot of "telling" and not much "showing." During the climax scene, there is backstory filling, which should have been spread throughout the novel. It reminded me of old mysteries in which the detective would lead you through why this all happened, but that's usually after the climax and not during. With all of that said, if Purgatory's Angel had undergone a lot of editing and rewrites, it would be vastly superior. This is definitely a case of an author loving her writing too much. The story is intriguing. Even when I saw the Dennis Quaid movie, I thought the idea of a character entering another's dreams to do battle was fascinating. The character of Jaime is kind of cool, but her attitude frequently made me feel "meh." The talk of marriage between her and Rick after maybe a week or just a tad more of knowing him? Squirrelly. In fact, the whole triangle just felt off, but then I never was good at geometry. I received a copy of Purgatory's Angel through LibraryThing's early reviewers program in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first time ...

This is my first time reading this author. The story is well written and has a very interesting storyline. I found it a little hard to get into the book at first but I became engrossed after sticking with it. I enjoyed the dramatic twist near the end but was disappointed with the open ending. The ending sets up the next book but I'm not sure I will continue this series. Overall, it is worth a read if you are looking for something new and interesting.
