Guest Post with Diane Alberts and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome back to the blog author Diane Alberts. Diane has stopped by today to chat about her new book Divinely Ruined, but before we chat let's get to know Diane a bit more.

Diane Alberts has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author. Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.

She is a multi-published, bestselling author with Entangled Publishing and Decadent Publishing. She is repped by her fabulous agent, Lauren Hammond of ADA Management. She has, as of this date, three books with Entangled Publishing, and five books with Decadent Publishing. Her February release with Entangled Publishing, ON ONE CONDITION, hit #18 on the Barnes and Noble Bestseller List.

Creating the Divine Temptations Angels

When an author makes a paranormal book, one of the most important things to consider is world building. You need to explain why things are the way they are, and how these things occur, while not boring the reader to death. In the Divine Temptations Trilogy, my angels are not angelic! Here’s a little glimpse into a bit of the Divine Temptations world, and how it works.

In Divinely Ruined, Rebecca is a hot-headed, cursing, impulsive woman who just so happens to be an angel in training. Problem being…she isn’t supposed to be any of those things. She’s supposed to be quiet, and good natured, and polite. She is quite convinced she can handle this…until she meets her first assignment.

In order for Rebecca to truly heal Tony, she needs to know his inner thoughts. To solve this issue, in my world, angels can read minds. They know all of their subject’s thoughts and desires. This becomes particularly uncomfortable for Rebecca, not only because Tony’s desires involve her—but because he chooses to torture her with his impure thoughts.

When you throw both of these together, well, you get Divinely Ruined!

Thanks for stopping by and seeing a little bit of my world I created. There’s mind reading, desire, and need.

Oh, and of course…love.

She finally meets a decent man–after she’s oath-bound never to touch men again!

Rebecca’s life sucked before she became an angel. Crappy apartment, awful jobs, abusive boyfriends–it was no wonder she jumped at the chance to escape it all and become a real live angel. The problem is Rebecca’s not very angelic, and she’ll have to do more to earn her wings than end her love affair with the word f–er, frick.

Especially when she’s assigned to save single father Tony Weis, whose less-than-pure thoughts wreak hell on a telepathic angel’s nerves. It’s all Rebecca can do to keep her hands off him…but when she loses her memory injuring herself to save Tony’s daughter, now it’s Tony’s turn to be her angel and care for her. But will Tony’s devotion tempt her from her angelic path, even if it means being human again?
