Maggie Brock has everything under control. Even her divorce, though painful at the time, only registers as a minor blip in her carefully constructed universe. Life in Prairie Oaks has once again returned to a smooth, predictable pace…until an angel shows up in her bedroom.
The angel is just as bewildered as Maggie about why he’s been sent to her, but their unsuccessful efforts to gain understanding of the mystery fade to the background as their relationship grows. Soon, Maggie’s biggest problem becomes the angel himself, as her feelings for him develop into something less than saintly.
While Maggie struggles to keep her desires pure, a nefarious being lurks in the shadows of Prairie Oaks, watching and waiting for the opportunity to fulfill his ambiguous purpose. Preying on her conflicted emotions, the demon manipulates her at every opportunity, but the one to deliver Maggie directly into his hands is the last person she’d expect.
5 of 5 Divine Temptation
Divine Temptation is an incredible read. Anyone who knows me knows I love angel stories. There is something about good VS evil that pulls you into a book. In this story Nicki Elson makes you question good and evil. Can the devil really do that? Is God there watching us? Do we have a guardian angel who watches over us? Why is it the devil wants to make people miserable? Is it not enough he takes something from them but he has to kick them over and over again while they are down?
Maggie Brock is a mother of two newly divorced from her longtime husband. But Maggie is strong and she knows that this is only one little bump in the road and as long as she keeps her eyes on the prize and keeps trusting in God he will deliver her from this personal hell she lives in. Her husband Carl decided he did not love her anymore and moved on to another women leaving Maggie to care for their children. Her son is so adorable but her daughter at times got on my nerves because she was giving her mother a hard time.
But there is one bright side to Maggie and that is every night she dreams of an angel. But soon her dreams become a reality and her angel becomes flesh and blood and is there to help her out in her time of need. At first Maggie can't believe it but she soon learns to trust her angel she calls Evan. Maggie is also leery because she is starting to have feelings for her angel and she is not sure if she is supposed to have those feelings. I mean he is an angel right but she and Evan soon realize that evil is lurking around the corner and when Maggie comes face to face with that evil she will need Evan by her side to help her through it.
This is such a great story of good vs evil and what happens when you trust God and he saves you.
About the Author:
Writing wasn't something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves her creative writing time in with the other activities of her busy life with her family in the Chicago suburbs.
Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. Her published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and short stories “Sway” (available as a single), “I Don’t Do Valentine’s Day” (part of A Valentine Anthology), and “Impressionism 101” (included in the debut issue of Insatiable: The Magazine of Paranormal Desire).
