$14.00 trade paperback
Released: June 2012
Sammael used to be an Angel of Death. Now he's fallen, no longer forced to watch as innocent souls were slaughtered by evil. Now he can dole out his own form of punishment. For centuries, he's enjoyed what he does. When a scared woman comes to him for protection, claiming he owes her a favor, he agrees to help, thinking it will just be another job. As a fallen, he can feel emotions, but the lust and yearning he feels while around this beauty stun him. He refuses to let himself get drawn in, distrustful of his feelings for her. When he realizes who and what is chasing her, he realizes it's about to get a lot more interesting than he thought.
Seline is on the run from the monsters out to kill her. Turning to Sammael for help is her only option. Even though the sight of him sets her blood on fire, she knows he's the only one skilled enough to keep her alive. Trying to keep her distance from him will be difficult, but she can't afford to get close to him. She also can't afford for him to find out the dark secret about her, one that will turn him into her enemy if he ever finds out.
This is book two in the series. While I didn't have any problems reading it, there were mentions to I'm guessing what happened in book one, so I'd recommend starting there first. This was a fantastic story. It has danger, intrigue, adventure, mystery, lust, and sex. All the ingredients necessary for a great book. I've read several books about fallen angels, and this was one of the better ones. This book kept me turning the pages, wondering what bad guy was going to show up next and ruin everything. It was a great story, and I look forward to reading book three when it comes out later this year.
