Don't let this book fool you. It appears to take place during Christmas, due to the snow and holly on the cover, but it takes place from April-June and no mention of holidays. Otherwise it was a fairly good story, but a little dated.

One of Nora's great books. A pregnant woman on the run and a hero who she can trust.

I really enjoyed this book. I had swore off Roberts for a while because they were just getting too predictable and were not holding my interest. This book though was very very good. I read it in one sitting and even though parts of it was predictable it was still enjoyable enough to keep me reading and enjoying! Highly recommend this one as a quick and fun read.

Pregnant and alone, Laura Malone, gets stuck on a Colorado road in the middle of a blizzard. Gabriel Bradley, a renowned painter, rescues her and brings her to his home to ride out the storm.

Both have suffered losses with different results. Gabriel his beloved brother and he no longer feels a reason to live. Laura has lost a philandering, abusive and wealthy husband and is now running from his parents who are determined to take her child from her as soon as he is born. She believes that they will be able to because they have money and can hire lawyers and manipulate the system.

Gabriel takes her with him to San Francisco, partly because he wants to marry her and partly because his attraction to her has reignited his will to lie.

A light and interesting read, although I have to say I really cant imagine any court taking a child from a birth mother and turning the child over to the grandparents.

First off, GABRIEL'S ANGEL is, indeed, a reprint of the original Silhouette edition that was published in 1989. I had read this story years ago, but wanted to reread it and was intrigued with the new cover. Is the book a Christmas story? Not in the literal sense. In the way that it inspires love, happiness, selflessness, and a sense of well-being, then yes, it's a good holiday read.

Laura Malone, former model and a woman whose face was known worldwide, is on the run--not from an abusive husband or a group of bad guys determined to due her harm, but from a domineering, powerful ex-mother-in-law who wants nothing more than to take away Laura's unborn child. Although Laura's former husband is no longer alive, the unborn grandbaby is, at least to Mother-In-Law-Dearest, the necessary means to keep her son alive. With more money than she knows what to do with, she sends out private detectives to find Laura, to force her to return home to hand over custody of her child.

While traveling through Colorado on her way to Dallas, Laura makes a wrong turn--and almost ends up dead during a snowstorm on an isolated mountain road. Fortunately, she narrowly avoids hitting Gabriel Bradley, an artist who has chosen solitude in a small mountain cabin to ease his pain and grief over his brother's untimely death. With no other viable ways to get Laura rescued, he takes her home with him--and is immediately struck not only by her beauty, but by her inner strength in the lengths she'll go to protect her child.

As the storm rages on, Laura and Gabe learn more about each other than they'd planned--and they devise a plan that includes a marriage of convenience to save Laura's unborn child from its grandmother. But their feelings, although not spoken aloud, are edging towards love. Will it be enough to save this family?

Rereading GABRIEL'S ANGEL, I was once again reminded of why I love Nora Roberts and her books. A contrived relationship and overly-used storyline (i.e. marriage of convenience, marry for the baby's sake, etc.) it may be, but Ms. Roberts has a way of writing that fully immerses you in the story. A true romance classic, this is one to reread over and over again.

Pregnant, alone and on the run to protect her unborn child, Laura Malone found herself stranded on a snowy Colorado road, at the mercy of a stranger. Fortunately, Gabriel Bradley's only intention that fateful night was to provide her shelter.

She was an angel with midnight blue eyes and a shock of blond hair, and Gabe might have thought she had come out of the snowy night to save him -- if he were the kind of man to believe in such things. But ever since he had lost his beloved brother, he had lost hope. Now the only solace Gabe took was in his solitude.

Together they weathered the storm, sharing their intimate secrets and soon powerful passion. By the time the roads had cleared, a promise had been made. For Gabe understood Laura needed protection if she hoped to keep custody of her child through the coming court battle.

For her sake, he was prepared to offer marriage. But his motives weren't nearly so pure. Truthfully, this beautiful, vulnerable stranger had given him an invaluable gift. Life with Laura had given Gabe a reason for being -- courage to hope, and the power to dream that he could have the future and the family he had once dreamed of . . .
