Fallen angel Jim Heron must help a former fellow special ops soldier in his second outing, following Covet (2009). Since going AWOL from XOps, Isaac Rothe has been a marked man. He earns his money as an underground fighter, until he nearly kills a man in the ring and is arrested by the police. The arrest draws the attention of his former commander, the sinister Matthias, as well as Heron, who is determined to save Isaac from both Matthias and a deadly demon who wants Isaac’s soul. Isaac’s court-appointed attorney, the beautiful Grier Childe, is equally resolute in her efforts to help Isaac, even going so far as to post his bail. Sparks fly between the unlikely duo, resulting in a night of passion that shakes Isaac’s determination to flee the charges. After Grier has a frightening encounter with Matthias, Isaac realizes he must protect her, even as Heron urges him to run. The newest in Ward’s Fallen Angels series offers a sumptuous mix of danger and romance. --Kristine Huntley
