Irresistible romance, breathtaking suspense and a sensational new series... Eternal love is put to the ultimate test
When baby Ebony is snatched from the midwife, she is rent not only from her parents but also her betrothed. In her world, a special bond is formed with one other being - for eternity. But Ebony is no longer in her world; she has been hidden in ours. An angel on earth.
Earth was the best place to conceal Ebony, to keep her from her kin who desperately seek her, and to keep Ebony from discovering for herself who she really is.
But Ebony is coming of age, and then no one will be able to hide her true origins. She will be 'visible', and the one who stole her away will come back to claim her. But who will reach her first?

Easy to read, fast paced. A great book for those looking for a quick escape that they can knock over in a day or two.
Comments about Hidden:
Ebony and Jordan are sixteen and attend the same high school in a beautiful valley in Australia. Born at the same time, they share a special link. They meet quite by accident - literally, and unbeknown to them the heavens light up when they touch, alerting the angels, both good and dark to their position, triggering a series of events that make this book change from a paranormal romance to an exciting, edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Hidden is told through both Ebony and Jordan's POV, which gave me insight into what both these characters were feeling and how they interpreted events from their different perspectives. It helped reveal the relationships between Jordan, Ebony and the other main character, a gorgeous angel named Nathaneal.
Hidden is the first of a series, so there are questions left unanswered, like why Ebony has so much trouble accepting she's an angel, and why Jordan is so intensely drawn to Ebony in a way he can't explain.
Hidden is not your typical paranormal romance. It kept me turning the pages even while I wanted to read it more slowly so I could savour the moments as long as I could. There are plethora of angel books out there, and I've read most of them, but Hidden is a cut above the rest.
