Taleisin is a fallen angel he has been banished because of his pride. He was the Angel of inspiration to inspire musicians, poets etc to get to their full potential. He has been walking among humans on earth for centuries upon centuries and he is becoming increasingly tired of it at least vampires and other deities have their way of dealing with their immortality. He in fact has no way to deal with it; Gabriel comes to him one day to let him know that God wants him to learn exactly why he was sent their in the first place. Taleisin tries to walk away from him as he is talking to him but Gabriel roots him in his place on the train tracks, and doesn't let him go he has him frozen in place until the train hits him. Of course the train doesn't hurt him or kill him just gives him a slight headache, and scares the train conductor half out of his wits. He is taken to a mental hospital for evaluation by the police and meets Dr. Emerson Matthews. She feels a strange attraction to him and is also aggravated by the way he answers her questions. When she sees how the other patients of hers open up to him in ways that she hasn't been able to get them to open up she knows that there is more to him than she realizes. When she talks with him further she realizes that there definitely is more to him than she had thought earlier. They are interrupted and she takes him back to her office for more of an interview and discussion. While they are there he kisses her and she freaks out slightly stating that she shouldn't have let that happen and that he should file a report about it. He states that he was the one that kissed her and that he will not file a report. She is still in a bit for freaked out mode when he tells her that he thinks he should explain who he is. As he begins to explain she tells him she thinks that she should be the last one he should be telling that he thinks he is an angel. So he shows her where Michael severed off his wings. She thinks that someone else injured him and that he has been tramatized and has made up this story just for that cause. So he shows her by stabbing himself with scissors and letting it heal before her eyes. He thinks that maybe he was sent to learn love for other people.

Banished from Heaven as punishment for his sins, Taliesin has walked among humans for thousands of years. He's damned sick of it. Death would be preferable to the cultural bankruptcy of the twenty-first century, but what's a cursed immortal to do? It's not like he can kill himself. Dr. Emerson Matthews has no clue what to do with the enigmatic, gorgeous man who has landed in the psych ward at the hospital where she works. Well, she knows what she wants to do, but it's unethical and likely illegal. Especially since he seems to be out of his mind. Why else would he claim to be a fallen angel? Hell bent on seduction, Taliesin tempts Emerson, luring her tightly guarded passion to the surface and introduces her to sensual delights she's never dreamed of. As she learns more about the mysterious man in her care, she begins to question her own sanity as his claims of Divine origin seem more plausible with each passing moment.
