Angel Boy

by Annalisa Russo


GENRE: Historical Romance (20th Century)





Private Investigator Meg Cavelli wonders why her traitorous family has trotted out the fatted calf for Seth Truitt, the boy who left her flat eight years ago. Now he’s back, sexier than she remembers, and needs her help. How can Meg accept Seth’s no-strings-attached deal in return for bringing a deranged predator to justice, when their steamy attraction to each other might very well get in the way?


Army Air Corps pilot Seth Truitt needs help to erase his dark-stained past, but soon realizes helping Meg Cavelli solve a dogged criminal case in return for salvaging his military career might be more dangerous than flying P-26 fighters for USAAC. But since Seth has no intention of letting Meg go again, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe from the twisted, unnatural threat they dubbed “the monster” as kids.


As the mystery unfolds, joining their minds and hearts might be the only way to stay alive.







Seth Truitt stood on the street in front of the only home he remembered. The autumnal drizzle of mid-October wet his thick mop of brown hair and plastered the starched shirt of his uniform against his skin. He turned back, grabbed his leather flight jacket and small duffel bag off the back seat, and paid the Yellow Cab hackie.


As the cab sped away he let the sight of Bellaluna sink in, soothe.


Bellaluna, beautiful moon in Italian, the ancestral home of the Cavelli family—people who took him in—raised him really—a place for family, for love, and now for sanctuary, he thought.


His Army Air Corps-issued boots crunched gravel underfoot on the long walk to the back yard. The overspent blooms of summer stretched proudly upward from terra cotta pots set on the flagstone portico. Faith’s attempt at a green thumb—his sister, Doctor Faith Cavelli now, and only living blood relative.


Two automobiles were parked out front. One vehicle he hadn’t recognized—a snazzy, brand-new Buick Coupe in hot red. Maybe from Gabriel Cavelli’s auto and motorbike collection. Gabe…one of his titulary uncles.


The three Cavelli brothers: Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, named after the archangels by their overly optimistic mother; Michael, proverbial head of the family, shrewd, astute businessman; Raphael, globe-trotting archaeologist, now curator of the Field Museum; and Gabriel, confrontational, Harley-riding badass, self-made entrepreneur.


He wasn’t related to any of them by blood… but he was by heart, by love.

      Thanks for the kind words, Rita! (If you’re interested, just thought I’d mention Angel Boy is on sale for $.99 until Nov. 23—if you were thinking of starting the Cavelli Angel Saga, it’s a good time to do so)

      Thanks, Ree. Angel Boy is part of the Cavelli Angel Saga, a quartet. The hero of Angel Boy is Seth Truitt, a character from the first book in the series, An Angel’s Redemption. Seth comes back to Bellaluna, the Cavelli ancestral home, after being gone for eight years. I had fun writing the series and was sad to see it end, the last of the Cavelli family. Probably…maybe…
