Let's give Rosalie a warm welcome. Read on and find out how you can win the first two books in her Fallen Angels series: For Love of an Angel and Angel’s Desire. They are both wonderful, not to be missed reads.
Karen: Let’s start with you telling the readers a little about yourself.
Rosalie: Well, I’m a sucker for a good-to-honest romance. J To that effect, I’m the author of two different paranormal romance series. The Fallen Warriors takes place in an alternate reality where angels rule over humans. The series follows twelve angels, the Fallen, who’ve been cast out of their society for their attempts to prevent the extinction of humankind. The Demons of Infernum series follows four half-demon brothers who work as interdimensional bounty hunters in New York City. It’s sort of like Supernatural with demon protagonists.
Karen: You have two books available in your The Fallen Warriors Series. The first book is For Love of an Angel and the second book is Angel’s Desire. I enjoyed both of the stories and can’t wait for the next book. How many books do you have slated for the series?
Rosalie: Thank you! I’ve planned five or six books for this series, haven’t quite decided yet. Each story is a novella starring one of the Fallen, complete with HEA, but there is an overarching series plot.
Karen: The books are offered in e-book formats. Will they be offered in print, too?
Rosalie: There are no current plans for a print version, but once the novellas have all been released, they will likely be packaged into a two-book print anthology.
Karen: What inspired you to write the series? Why angels?
Rosalie: I thought of The Fallen Warriors when I had just finished writing the first two books in my Demons of Infernum series. I really wanted to write a few novellas as sort of a mental break from the Demons series, and angels seemed like the perfect counterpoint to writing about demons. But even then I couldn’t go too good; it’s not in my nature. Hence the birth of the Fallen. They’re the good guys in my series, but they aren’t angelic in any sense of the word.
Karen: Give the readers a behind the scenes view of your story. Why are the angels on earth? Give us an insight to your angel world. How do the angels walk among the humans? (Explain how their wings appear and disappear. ) Would you recommend the readers to read the books in order?
Rosalie: Angels were thrust onto Earth when the veil between the dimensions collapsed, destroying their world (we’ll learn a bit more about what this means as the series progresses). After they were revealed to humans, angels convinced them to let the angel society assume control over Earth in exchange for peace and security. Humans are now assigned jobs and residences, and the angels have done away with money. Instead there are pass cards with monthly point allotments. It’s supposed to be the ultimate utopia, but as we’ll learn, it’s anything but. The angels’ view of the perfect world is one without any humans on it.
Karen: Tell us a little about your Fallen. Who are these angels? What are they like? Do you have a favorite angel?
Rosalie: The Fallen are a group of twelve angels who were condemned to die after they protested the plot to eradicate humans. They managed to escape, and together they aim to stop the extinction of mankind. But they are vastly outnumbered, and in order to preserve their immortality they need to find mates, in this case nephilim (children of angels and humans).
Angels have the ability to absorb their wings into their body, giving them the allusion of being mortal. But to nephilim, they give off an unmistakable electric current: it’s their essences calling to each other.
I think my favorite Fallen is Seth. He’s a total badass, leather pants and all!
Karen: So far both your angels have been my favorites. :) I can't wait to read the other stories. What are your current projects and works in progress?
Rosalie: My focus for the remainder of this year will be on the Demons of Infernum series. Touch of the Angel, #3 in the series, is due to release on December 6, 2011. Right now I’m writing a novella set in that world and featuring a friend of the brothers; Heart of the Incubus releases in January 2012. Finally Call of the Siren, #4 in the series, releases in July 2012.
As for The Fallen Warriors, #3 in the series is due to be released in the Spring of 2012.

In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.
They are The Fallen.
For Love of an Angel –
Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect humankind. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium—the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth—but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of humankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all…for love of an angel.
Angel’s Desire –
Fallen angel Ethan has been outcast due to his love of humankind. In order to preserve his immortality, he must find a mate with angel blood…but the one woman he desires blames him for her father’s death. As a teenager, Tayla had a fierce crush on Ethan, her angel father’s best friend. She was humiliated when he rejected her, claiming she was too young for him. Her love turned to hate when he failed to save her father from being killed by the other angels.
Battle looms on the horizon, and Ethan can no longer afford to waste time. He must claim Tayla as his…but convincing her she’s his mate won’t be so easy.
