She finally meets a decent man—after she’s oath-bound never to touch men again!
Rebecca’s life sucked before she became an angel. Crappy apartment, awful jobs, abusive boyfriends–it was no wonder she jumped at the chance to escape it all and become a real live angel. The problem is Rebecca’s not very angelic, and she’ll have to do more to earn her wings than end her love affair with the word f—er, frick.
Especially when she’s assigned to save single father Tony Weis, whose less-than-pure thoughts wreak hell on a telepathic angel’s nerves. It’s all Rebecca can do to keep her hands off him…but when she loses her memory injuring herself to save Tony’s daughter, now it’s Tony’s turn to be her angel and care for her. But will Tony’s devotion tempt her from her angelic path, even if it means being human again?

After six months of writing for The Nocturnal Library, the time has come for me to review my first adult paranormal romance. It will probably be the last, too, so enjoy it while it lasts – I certainly did.
Divinely Ruined is incredibly sweet, a perfect Sunday afternoon read. I was drawn to it beca... ...more
3.5 - "Maybe I should prove to you that you're no angel... and neither am I." Stars!
Another great reissue from Entangled. If you are a fan of this author I would recommend that you make sure you read the blurb before one-clicking just to be sure you haven't already read Divinely Ruined as it was... ...more
Rebecca Chance is an angel-in-training sent to save Tony from losing his soul by committing murder.
Rebecca has had a hard time conforming to the requirements of a would-be-angel. She has a temper, tendencies to cuss like a sailor, and has problems following orders. But she has a true heart and c... ...more
"It had never bothered him, but now the empty apartment seemed to swallow him whole, too quiet without her warm presence nearby."
When I was offered the chance to review Divinely Ruined for Entangled Publishing I jumped at the chance. After reading Diane's previous romance title, On One Conditio... ...more
Divinely Ruined is a sweet, enjoyable romance with a slight paranormal undertone. I must admit I thought this aspect may play a bigger part than it actually did, but it didn't detract from a story I quickly found myself immersed in.
I'm not going to reiterate the story as the blurb gives you all... ...more

If you think that this is just another angel story, you are so wrong! Rebecca was not the sort of angels that we would normally think of. She was not very good at being angelic--she's head strong, has a temper and cursed. She was on a mission to save a man's soul and she needed to ace it to gain... ...more
In the course of three years, Anthony had lost his job, his house, and the mother of his child–and would soon commit a murder. (pg. 2, Divinely Ruined)
Rebecca Chance was a angel in training. She still hasn't earned her wings and due to her "sailor" mouth it took nearly twice as long for her to complete her training before she was FINALLY given her first mission which would earn her wings. Upon arriving at her location she is caught by the man w... ...more
This is Diane Alberts' best work yet.
I've read most of Diane's books, and I can tell you this one tops them all.
The heroine, Rebecca, has had it tough-- and I mean tough for quite a few years. Non existent family, a shitty job, jerks for boyfriends, and the list goes on. She believes in nothing... ...more

This book was truly just an enjoyable read. I loved the story line. Rebecca is trying to earn her wings after a not-so-great life. Her goal, to keep Tony from committing a sin that will condemn his soul which will earn her those wings. But instead she finds herself in danger of... ...more
I'm really not one for short stories or novellas but the cover and blurb of this one sucked me right in.
Rebbeca's human life wasn't much to begin with - it was miserable at best - so when she was offered an amazing chance to become an angel, she took it. Now Rebecca has her first mission on Eart... ...more
Rebecca is an angel in training--anxious to earn her wings. Unfortunately, she's given the assignment of saving the soul of Tony, a single father, who's been beaten down by life and lost hope in everything but his young daughter. Add to that, Rebecca isn't the most saintly to begin with due to a... ...more
This could have easily been a 5 star, but by the end of it, Rebecca had pissed me off too much.
This was a fast enjoyable read, and the first half was a pretty awesome, then it started going down from there. Rebecca changes a bit too much, I know it was necessary but it's as if she had last her sp... ...more
I received this eBook for free from Entagled Publishing in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

I have to say, this book was much funnier than I had thought it would be. I loved the dynamics of the relationship between Rebecca, the guardian angel, and Tony, the one in need of saving. And it was made so much better because she was able to read his thoughts since he was her mission. The book... ...more
So even though i gave this book 4 stars i have to admit it took me a little bit to get into it it wasn't until i was about 30% of the way through that i finally got hooked and couldn't put the book down.
I am also impressed that this book took me somewhere i wasn't expecting to go i thought i had... ...more
This short, sweet romance is an absolute must-read. Rebecca is an angel-in-training and boy does she need lessons! Alberts' prose is sharp and witty, and she draws you in by creating characters that it's easy to sympathise with. She also manages to put in enough twists to avoid this becoming an o... ...more
