Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority— Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.
But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.
With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.”

A hand gripped my shoulder, and I startled, quickly spinning around. God, please don’t tell me it’s Damien back for round two. Could this day get any worse? But it wasn’t Damien—it was the brunette vampire. I looked at him cautiously, warily, stealing a breath before asking, “What do you want?”
His lips curved into a small smile, revealing a glimpse of fangs. “I thought I would help you…since you’ve gone to so much trouble to find me and all.”
I studied him for a moment. His hair looked soft and shiny, like silk lying out in the sun. It hung along the sides of his head, modestly framing his perfect, creamy face. He stood casually, arms crossed over his chest, his left eyebrow slightly raised. I’d guess his age was somewhere around twenty-five in human years, which was a littler older than the age I went for in my human form. “You’re Luke?”
He nodded. “Why are you looking for me?”
Hoping the truth would be best; I dove into explaining the situation. “I was told you could help me by, um, an acquaintance. A vampire has been kidnapped by an otherworldly demon. I’m willing to help Typhon—”
Luke held his hand out. “Whoa! Wait just a minute. How do you know all of this? I can buy that you know about vampires, and even demons. But no human knows about Typhon.”
I stared at him a moment, the reality of what I was doing hitting me. But I couldn’t stop. I couldn’t turn around and leave. Cole needed my help. More importantly, I needed to help Cole. My face felt flushed, a mixture of raw emotions and the sting from the position I was in. I swallowed hard. It was time to get real with Luke. “My name is Selene and I’m an angel.”
