How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the ‘life’ they’ve been assigned. What they don’t realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz’s establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel’s path and a warrior’s plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that’s ripping them apart.
This book was great for anyone looking for a book that is looking for religion, humor, angels on earth, warriors, historical romance. The story follows the Angels Emily and Warrior Matt as they descend to earth to learn about humans and their behaviors. Emily ends up living on earth as Elizabeth (Liz) and Matt ends up being Daniel. They meet in a pub that Liz owns, and during the night a murder is committed and two new characters are introduced Charles and Jason. Liz quickly falls in love with Jason even though she doesn’t easily admit it, due to the fact that her partner is Matt and he’s in love with her. She finds herself falling for Jason and not sure if that is right or not questions everything she believes and feels. After her pub is burned down she flees with her friend Faith and Jason and Charles. Charles and Faith wed quickly and Jason wants that commitment with Liz who is unsure.
They end up travelling back to Jason and Charles’s home in Dublin, Ireland. Where we meet Charles’s parents and learn about how horrible they are. Jason’s parents work for Charles’s. In the night Liz and Daniel, Faith and Jason and Charles help Charles’s sister Angela and Jason’s parents flee for their safety. Jason and Liz stay behind for a night of love, then in the morning Jason wakes up to find Liz gone a note left behind.
In-between all this Matt and Emily make frequent trips up to heaven for guidance and support. They get the best advice they can get from Michael, Gabriel, and the Saints and do their best in the situation and free their friends from Charle’s parents.
I felt gripped once this book picked up and was very interested to see how it ended and look forward to reading the second book in this series. I have a feeling Jason will return as well. I like the idea of Emily and Jason together.
