When Tempest Gardiner averts Armageddon by destroying the Amulet of the End of Days, sending Evil back to Hell, little does she expect to end up in Heaven fashioning Christmas wreaths for the biggest birthday party of the year. An utter failure at fitting into the Heavenly crowd, and tormented by the presence of her former lover Jareth, the man–now angel–she loves and with whom she can no longer have the kind of Earthly relationship she desires, Tempest wants nothing more than to return to Earth.
Salvation comes in the form of a scar-faced angel, who brings Tempest onto the Soul Squad, her ticket to Earth to help a young woman whose husband and child were killed by the Devil’s hordes. But membership on the squad means forfeiting contact with all other angels. Can Tempest let go of her dreams of a life with Jareth? Can she save a young woman’s soul?
Tempest In A Pear Tree, a Christmas novella, approximately 25,000 words, first in the Soul Squad series. Copyright © 2010 by Sharon Louise.
