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 rogue 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.

Great start to a promising series. From the beginning the story moves at a brisk pace and pulls you along. The main characters, Mira and Kagan, are both strong and interesting. Each has to deal with their own past issues while coming together to face the threat that is looming.
Kagan understands the threat and is there to keep Mira safe and keep the Seal from getting into the wrong hands. Mira on the other hand is forced into this position. Watching her learn to trust Kagan and watching Kagan adjust to this being more than just a job makes the story fun and entertaining.
The characters are well developed and interesting. Not just the main characters but the secondaries as well and I am looking forward to reading their stories. The background story about the coming Apocalypse the Scions are trying to keep from occuring is interesting and lends a great backdrop to future stories as well.
I highly recommend this to anyone that loves paranormal romance with a dose of action. Dont miss it, you want to be ready for the next story as soon as it comes out.
