After centuries of lonely, faithful service in the heavenly realms, Kagan is tired of watching the world go by from the sidelines.

But when he senses a new call, he seizes his chance for freedom, only to discover the summons came from the very woman he’s sworn to protect, a woman who awakens in him the long-dormant, darkest desires of his heart.
Mira Herald is shocked when a gorgeous, buff Adonis shows up at the bar where she works in Chicago, claiming to be a legendary, immortal Scion sent to protect her and carry out the vengeance she craves against her cheating ex. But when the attraction to her handsome guardian grows too strong to resist, and her ex turns out to be far more dangerous than she ever expected, can Mira believe in Kagan and what they have together, no matter the cost?
