    About "Serena Yates"

        I m a night owl and start writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep I ve loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first Twenty some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.Living and working in eight countries has taught me that there is than one way to get things done It has instilled tremendous respect for the many different cultures, beliefs, attitudes, and preferences that exist on our planet.I like exploring those differences in my stories, most of which happen to be romances My characters have a tendency to want to do their own thing, so I often have to rein them back in The one thing we all agree on is the desire for a happy ending.I currently live in Canada, sharing my house with a vast collection of books I like reading, traveling, spending time with my nieces and listening to classical music I have a passion for science and learning new languages.

    1. Published today, this is the first book in a series that takes a slightly irreverent look at the way Heaven is managed, celestial politics included. The series name, Celestial Justice, is a summary of the thought behind all the books: whatever happens to any of the angels, ex-angels or humans involved, in the end, justice will prevail.This first story has a Christmas theme, but that only provides a seasonally inspired setting. Araton, an ex-guardian angel, may have a new assignment, but it soon [...]


    2. I love-love-love angel stories and this one has a nice twist about an angel getting a second chance and finding out that what he really needs more than anything is love. The pacing is never rushed and I'm a fan of that. The over-hasty wrap-up is not my cup of tea. I'm looking forward to reading the next one.


    3. Mushy and all about the sex, which didn’t quite work for meWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 6/10PROS: - Some of the specifics about angels are fun: their physical forms, their emotions, the way their lives work, etc. I was also amused by the distinctions made between different types of celestial beings.- Araton is incredibly naïve, never having experienced sexual contact of any sort before meeting Jake, and the author manages to portray Jake in a [...]


    4. I loved this book. The guardian angel them is a time-honored one and I loved that both Araton the angel, and his human, Jake, are both flawed individuals who can only be redeemed by love. I enjoyed Serena's sense of humor--and her sense of the ridiculous. I am looking forward to book two in this series. These characters really wormed their way into my heart and I want more. MORE!The sex scenes by the way are scorchingAraton is one bad-ass, sexy angel!!




    5. **possible plot spoilers**When Araton fails to keep his charge safe and his charge winds up in a wheelchair, he’s devastated. It had only taken that one moment of inattentiveness to change the man’s life forever. Summoned by The Powers That Be, Araton must face his fate—or must he? His friend, there for moral support, appeals against the decision to banish Araton into the void, and a new phase of Araton’s existence begins.He must ensure his new charge understands and believes in the spir [...]


    6. Standing in any courtroom waiting to face justice would be intimidating enough, but standing in front of the judicial panel for celestial-human affairs in Heaven, would be unimaginably frightening, especially when the actions placing you there weren't deliberate. At the beginning of 'Araton's Destiny', by Serena Yates, that's exactly where Junior Guardian Angel Araton finds himself.One of the things that I loved most was the interaction between Araton and Jake. Araton was so naive, yet so respon [...]


    7. Araton is a little different from other angels. He craves to be touched and he dreams about writing books. In a moment of inattention, disaster happens and Araton is removed from being a Guardian Angel. Now he has been given a new charge as a Christmas Angel. His duty is to help people to believe in miracles again so that they can get their life back. Jake is a former football player. He lost his career when he sustained a severe injury to his knee. For the last four years he has been trying to [...]


    8. Re-released today, at Diversity Novels!The content is the same as before, but if you've never read Araton's story, this could be your chance to catch up. Araton may be a guardian angel, but he isn't very good at his job


    9. What a sweet story with touching scenes about guilt, hope, shattered dreams, new beginnings and love of course! Araton was just too sweet with his naivety. I am a sucker for happy endings. I can't wait to read Dexter's story.


    10. Short and sweet story of two men destined to be a part of one another's lives, even though one isn't quite human.


    11. Enjoyed this very much. My first angel story and now I'm looking for more. Well written and enjoyable tale!


    12. Wonderfully touching story about sacrifices for love. Serena has done it yet again. Would love to see a sequel/update on Aaraton and Jake.


    13. This was a good story with interesting twists. I particularly liked the way the background and world were built. The characters were rich, caring, and I grew to like them.


    14. I really loved it *-* It was an amazing read.I just couldn't stop reading until I had finished. And it took me all night XDNow, I can't wait for the next book in the series >.<



    15. The premise was interesting, but unfortunately the characters are rather one-dimensional. They are reduced to a few characteristics and they never actually encounter any difficulties.The book was much too short for a story that could have been quite complex.I'd have liked to get to know the characters better, liked to learn what makes them tick, I would have loved a bit more background info. No man is an island and at least *football guy* must have had friends or family. I think he mentioned his [...]


    16. This book popped up on my recommended. I had no idea what it was about, saw the two yummy guys on the cover and "Celestial" in the title and thought "gay angels, fab, I'll have that."It's a Christmas story; which is awesome to read since today is 16th December.I enjoyed following the changes in Araton's existence, the progression of his relationship with Jake, and the sweet HEA.My biggest "Yay" moment was the documents making Araton real. It always frustrated me in other books where someone fro [...]


    17. how this thing got so many stars is completely beyond me! there is no characterization AT ALL, the story is flat and unimaginative and the writing is beyond simple. short sentences, short, simple words. it would read like something from a 1st grade textbook if it wasn't for the dirty details.I didn't expect too much of a story because a lot of gay fiction centers on the sex and the rest is just decoration. but here, even the sex was boring to read!sometimes, it seems that "it's a gay novel and t [...]


    18. If you have ever been within seconds of a serious accident, and somehow miraculously escape unscathed, you may have an idea of what it feels like to have a guardian angel. And if you are totally accident prone and could trip over an imaginary bump, you may know what it is like to have Araton. I like to think God has a sense of humor, and Serena Yates does a fantastic job of proving it. Her characters are not only drop dead sexy, but wonderfully flawed and human at the same time.LototyReviewer fo [...]


    19. This was a little bit of Christmas magic wrapped up in bromance. It wasn't too bad but there were some consistency issues which spoiled it for me.Araton had been a guardian angel for yearseping a close eye on his humant he didn't know what a toaster was. I could cope with that until he suddenly 'knew' how to use a coffee machine, a condom & other sundries. If he had learned through observation of his previous human, it would have hung together much better.It was a quick, sweet read but I don [...]


    20. Out now, this is the audio book version of last year's Christmas story. It also happens to be the first in the Celestial Justice series. It tells the story of Araton, a junior guardian angel who has trouble with doing his jobCheck out an audio sample and buy the book at Silver Publishing


    21. 3.5 starsAraton was a guardian angel who was always a little distracted. His distraction ended up causing his charge to get horribly hurt. Araton then had to face the judicial committee and it was decided that he would become a Christmas Angel. His new charge is Jake, who needs a little holiday spirit. Araton and Jake fall for each other, making a sweet couple. This was an easy read, but cute.


    22. I think this story was a little to sweet for me. I dont know if I was in more of a mood for a bit of drama or it was just a bit twee.Im not sure what to write about it - Adorable Angel vs Snarky Shithead LOLI recommend it for anyone that likes angels - or anyone that is in the mood for a light hearted and easy read. A gentle bit of fluff :)


    23. I think I was just thinking too much about the whole thing. Didn't every human get guardian angels or was it only certain humans that got Angels? How was it that no guardian angel messed up in a very long time? I was just confused about the first 50% of the book. But I guess it was ok but I'm not sure if I liked it or hated it.


    24. I love m/m romance, fantasy, and angel themed fiction. This was a great combination of all three. I was completely engaged and intwined with the characters from the very beginning and the story held my interest all the way through. I can't wait to start the second one in the trology!


    25. Wow! What a super sweet story, though very quick & light on some details. I'd like to give 3 1/2 stars, but am rounding up for the super warm & fuzzy afterglow from this read. Sigh. I'm such a sucker for a HEA. : )Read for June BotB Challenge Opposites Attract. A10/B11 Angel/Same Sex


    26. Araton's Destiny is a very sweet and well-written story and I look forward to reading more books from this series. My only nit-pick was that the problem with the broken leg and sprained ankle never was addressed.


    27. Reading this made me want my own guardian angel, lol.To be honest, I didn't expect much from this one. Any story with angel or fairy theme are always a hit or miss for me. Mostly a miss, to be exact.
