[Review] Scourned by Josephine Templeton

The Fallen Angelle Series
by Josephine Templeton
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Angelle, God’s first Angel, fell from grace along with Satan. However, after thousands of years as Satan’s girlfriend, Angelle wants back into heaven and becomes human. Now she must atone for her sins and save as many souls as she damned while fighting vampires and demons. One more condition — she must remain celibate.
Jack, a vampire hunter, visits Angelle’s bar, and their attraction is instant. But after watching her walk away from a car accident, he’s convinced she’s a vampire and must die. When Angelle doesn’t burst into flames at sunrise, Jack joins her quest to save souls. The partnership is jeopardized when two of the Scorned Bride’s daughters enthrall him.
Angelle must save Jack from another dimension, but in doing so, she risks her salvation. Will Jack want to be saved by the time she finds him? And if they survive the Scorned Bride, can they survive each other?


I loved the take on this story – a fallen angel who is looking to redeem herself to get back into heaven, but I did struggle to get started with this book for some reason. Once I eventually got into it, it was a good story.

Angelle owns a bar and it trying to get her wings back by helping save as many souls as she took – its going to take her a long time but she is doing it. Jack is a vampire hunter and he mistakes Angelle for a vampire on their meeting.

This book is both serious and funny at times, but there are something like editing issues that could have been picked up – like words missing from sentences etc. Also devil being called Nate was a little strange.

It was a good story, but I would have loved to know more about the characters and I hope there will be more to help explain some stuff in this book.

4 stars

As the youngest of nine children, I’ve learned a lot from my older siblings.  I’m still amazed at how different we are, but at the same time, how much alike.  I was the only child in the house by the time I reached high school.  So I had plenty of time to nurture my reading and writing skills.  My favorite author at the time was V.C. Andrews, and my first story was what is now known as fan fiction, with Indiana Jones as the main character.  In fact, one story I wrote had him switching planes in flight, and my mom pointed out that was impossible.  Who would have guess many years later that Harrison Ford would star in a movie in which he actually DID switch planes in flight (Air Force One, 1997)?!
I’m a member of HeartLa (the Baton Rouge chapter of Romance Writers of America) and have done freelance writing with Baton Rouge’s Town Favorites, Lafayette’s 008 Magazine, and Baton Rouge Parents Magazine.  I have four published novels under my wings (Convicted of Love – a historical romance, Forever Yours- a vampire romance, A Pirate’s Kiss – a historical romance and Scorned – an Urban Fantasy).





I am Fee, a 30 -something SAHM bookworm! I love to read, and will read almost anything and everything. I am not afraid to try new genres of books and my main genre is horror, thriller.
