BLOG TOUR: Shine by Joann H. Buchanan

Welcome to the Official Blog Tour for Shine, book 1 of the Halo series, by Joann H. Buchanan! Let's kick off this tour with a couple of teasers and an excerpt!

Paranormal Romance
Halo Saga, #1
Publish Date:
September 2, 2014
World Castle Pubishing

Summary from Goodreads:
"Light shines through the darkest cloud."

Angels are all around us, they get drunk off espresso, wear clothes like normal human beings and yes even have families like the rest of human society.

These were just a few of the things Elizabeth was about to learn.

Photographer and graphic artist Elizabeth is out in the middle of the country taking pictures of a cloudy sky when she witnesses an angel descend through the rays of light penetrating the clouds in the sky. Shocked, she passes out. Upon awakening, Elizabeth sees Samuel kneeling next to her calling her name with a voice so pure she's sure it isn't real. Samuel pops in and out of her life, confusing her as to what's real and what isn't. Slowly, Elizabeth gets him to admit he's an angel and the two of them fall in love, but there's a price to be paid for falling in love with an angel. 

Will their love be strong enough to fight against the darkness that surrounds them?


After that, I took the memory card from my camera and put it into the computer to pull up the images. One by one they came up. First were the pictures of the small trees with the beautiful yellow hues of light sparkling behind them. Across the sky, grey clouds formed and rays of light shined through them. I flipped through the photos, taking a quick look at all of them. As I reached the end of the file, I was sure I had imagined everything I had witnessed. Then the last three pictures showed him coming into view. Magical, miraculous, my jaw dropped as I pressed print on the small printer. A lifetime passed while I waited for the printer to finish spitting out the photos. With a sigh, I paced back and forth a little. Waiting wasn’t something I did well.

I looked at the pictures without blinking. I had captured the ray of light with Samuel in it. His body appeared like nothing more than an orb, or could even have been explained away. In the next picture, his body formed, almost ghostly in appearance. Finally, in the last one, Samuel landed on the ground. His wings had disappeared and the man I met was there.

I had seen it happen; it was real. It was proof enough to me that I wasn’t some crazed lunatic. Samuel had come from the sky. Questions still lingered in my mind. What was he doing there? How did I get to my car? There was nothing on the file after the last three images I’d printed. Fear grew inside me the more I thought about what could have happened on the way to my car. I cocouldn'tuite picture it, but I knew Samuel had saved me. I didn't know what from, and I didn't know why, but he had. Why couldn't I remember?
