So you’re seeing this guy and he seems perfect in so many ways. He’s so wonderful that you’re beginning to suspect he’s super human. Have you considered the possibility that you might be dating an angel?
Here’s eight ways to tell if your boyfriend is really an angel:
Part of being an angel is to live in God’s grace, that means being graceful. He’s not the type to crash into the coffee table or trip over his own feet, nor does he clump around with two left feet on the dance floor—in fact he’s a really good dancer.
He moves silently, too, so that there will be times you don’t hear him coming. That’s so he can sneak up on demons, and whisper the truth in people’s ears without them knowing he’s there. Sometimes, you might be the only one who sees him. He’s okay with that.
This guy has his own thing going on. Since angels don’t really need to sleep, he’s usually out all night fighting demons and protecting the world from evil. While he wants to be with you, he may simply not have time. He needs you to trust him, especially when you ask him where he’s been all night, he really can’t tell you, because angels can’t tell people what they really do, not even YOU. In return, he will trust you and not act jealous or possessive when you’re out with friends.
He’s not controlling, but he will be protective of you—fearlessly so. If he senses you’re in danger, he’ll turn up at the last minute to save your butt. This is the kind of guy who, if you’re watching TV together and he hears a noise, he will get up off the couch and see what’s going on. He knows there are dangers in the world, and he will stand in front of you to protect you–as long as you let him!
Angels are better looking than we are, and your angel boyfriend is no different. He’s hot… like celestial hot. There will always be a light in his eyes, even when he’s sad. At times, he’s even got a bit of a glow around him. That’s his halo.
In addition to being super-hot, this guy is well-behaved. He’s kind, thoughtful and polite. He’ll open doors for you and help you with the dishes. He’s not the kind to pressure you for sex or kiss and tell either. Angels are good at keeping secrets.
All your friends will love him, but don’t worry, he only has eyes for you. Your pets love to be around him and may trip over you to hang out in his lap, so his lap may get a little crowded. Your mom thinks he’s awesome. Everyone loves him (except maybe your dad, but that’s another story).
If this guy does something wrong, he owns what he’s done. He doesn’t try to wriggle out of it or blame others. He’s accountable and you may find it refreshing to be around someone like that. Sometimes, you might not even know or understand what was wrong about what he did, and that’s okay. He’ll make it right.
He remembers special occasions, like your birthday, your favorite color, and the anniversary of your first date—even from your past lives! This guy will remember things the average person forgets—like the color of the shoes you wore last week, or that dress you had on in the sixteenth century!
This one is hardest to detect. It might be something simple, like the ability to get across the city at rush hour in a matter of minutes (that’s because he flew). Or if you happen to be feeling sick, you might suddenly start feeling better when he’s around. That’s because he’s healing you. But he’s pretty low key about it. Angels are humble, and so is he.
If your boyfriend meets most or all of the above criteria—congratulations! You’re dating an angel.

Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.
Can he face her without falling again?
Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.
When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.
In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?
Ancient history is only the beginning.
