The Halo Effect by Shauna Allen‏


Shauna grew up an only child with two open and loving parents in Central Texas. She’s married to her high school sweetheart and is the mother to three fantastic (no, that’s not a typo!) teenagers.

When she’s not writing, editing, or acting as a personal assistant to a NYT Bestselling author, Shauna enjoys reading, movies with Gerard Butler, vacays to the beach, and hangin’ with the kiddos–even if they don’t like hangin’ with her!

He’s gotta earn his wings…again.

Love Detail’s favorite angel has his sights set on his next target: the stoic and mysterious Noble Blackfeather. And it just may prove to be his toughest case yet. Noble’s reclusive ways keep his angel at wing’s distance, and love even further. But he’s not playing a part – he’s truly masking a painful secret and a profoundly wounded heart.

A cupid’s worst nightmare.

Noble’s been paired with Braelyn Campbell, the cute single mother next door. She’s adorable, friendly, fun…everything Noble needs. This should be a Love Squad slam dunk. Except she’s making a fresh start in Texas to protect her son from a volatile ex, and she’s not about to risk her heart or her son on another man. Even if he’s sexy as sin and always coming to her rescue.

Thank God for possibilities.

But, reluctantly, they are drawn together – thanks to their cupid’s dogged efforts and a whole lotta chemistry. Can the girl next door learn to trust again and help heal Noble’s wounded heart? Together, can they save the lost, hurting boy she's raising? Can the angels help it happen before it's too late?

Thank God for love.


Book Trailer for the first book in the series, Inked by an Angel

Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
Angels and tattoos. Not a likely combo, I know! But I love hot, tattooed men and angels. And when my hero, Jed, in book one (Inked by an Angel) said those infamous and unplanned words in the prologue, “The Angel made me do it,” he set the wheels in motion to create not only that book, but an entire series.

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
I think approximately a year, which is actually a long time for me. But life and other obligations got in the way.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Creating a story I love and hearing from readers that they loved it too. Oh, and writing The. End.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Forcing myself to write through those places when I’m just stuck and not feeling it.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Whoever is currently dating my boyfriend, Gerard Butler. I don’t think I need to explain that one do I?

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Probably one of the condiments in the door, and I have no idea, LOL!

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
Wounded Wings, Book III of the Cupid Chronicles series will be released this December, 2013 from Soul Mate Publishing. My Cupid, Michael, is back and he has been given his most difficult task . . . to pair up a fallen brother. Is his heart up to the task? Is such redemption possible?

I also just released a separate title, Elvis is a Keeper, on August 28th. It’s the story of a spunky female fishing guide, the brutal crime that threatens to tear her family apart, and the brainy Elvis clone who sweeps into town tempting her heart!
