Goodreads Blurb:
Love conquers all . . . but can it stop the Apocalypse?

Mira Herald is having the worst life ever. Not only is she plagued by horrific nightmares starring the Devil himself, she’s now the target of a power-hungry, rogue minion, freshly sprung from Hell and bent on her destruction. To complicate matters further, she’s acquired a stalker. One who insists he’s a divine warrior sent for her protection because she houses an ancient relic with the power to unleash Armageddon. Last time Mira checked, she wasn’t insane. Still, all this celestial mayhem is enough to drive a girl crazy.

Kagan is a member of the Scion, an elite team of immortal warriors selected by Divinity to aid mankind and save the world. After a century alone, Kagan is summoned for a new mission. He’s eager to begin. Eager until he’s informed his mission consists of protecting a woman with no clue to the power she wields. Plus, his briefing fails to prepare him for his new target’s cosmic-sized attitude problem. As Divinity’s sworn servant, he’s required to fulfill his duty. His oath, however, does not require him to be enthusiastic about his new assignment or warm-and-fuzzy toward his new compatriot. He plans a wham-bam rescue and a quick return to solitude.

The minion attacks—with the backing of a mysterious organization—and all Hades erupts, putting a fast end to any whirlwind escapes. Accustomed to staunch independence, Mira’s survival now requires full cooperation and an unwavering belief in Kagan. The battle-hardened warrior is also forced to chose: between duty and desire. Amidst the turmoil, Kagan and Mira’s undeniable passion draws them closer to each other and down a path neither expected but both yearn for, more than they ever knew.

Will love save the day? The world’s fate depends on the answer.


My Review: A different type of paranormal romance that’s packed full of action, excitement, romance and kick butt characters that any fan of the genre will surely enjoy :)

I admire Mira. She has had a very hard life, filled with trauma and has built a brutal wall around her being (and heart) to help her stay safe in all ways possible. She has one friend and only one (named Zoe). Besides her wall and her one friend, she has made sure she learned how to defend herself from any that may try to harm her or any she cares about. One night while she’s working and meets an arrogant male named Kagan, she feels things, strange things. That she DOES NOT want to explore!

Kagan has a tortured past, a past that haunts him and not many are aware of. He has lived for centuries as a warrior along with a handful of others. All warriors of his ilk are cursed to never know or find their mate, to truly love or to have a family. When he finds himself drawn in inappropriate ways to his new assignment, he’s confused and finds it very difficult to ignore the strength and beauty of the female warrior before him. He does know he will do anything in his power to protect her.

These two have a lot more in common than they realize. Even though at different times, and very different situations. They both carry deep hurt and they can each help to heal the other. I just LOVE when fate puts two people together and they end up with no control over the love that blooms. I hope the author is planning on a series for this group of warriors. I find them all very… intriguing ;)
