For centuries, messenger archangel Gabriel has returned to the small village of Rodel, Scotland, passing himself off as villager. This time things are different, as Gabriel stumbles across his long-missing archess in the pub.
American Juliette Anderson goes to Scotland to work on her Ph.D. with a grant from media mogul Samuel Lambent. Samuel, aka Samael, has sent the unsuspecting Juliette into Gabriel’s vicinity on purpose. His grand scheme remains a mystery. What is not a mystery is the threat the Adarian Abraxos poses, for his new plan threatens the very lives of the precious archesses. Can Gabriel convince Juliette that he is not the major threat in time? (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Jun., 416 pp., $7.99)
