Regan and Marcus are fallen angels who have been partners for years, but their latest mission has them testing those bonds. Marcus has always been drawn to Regan and she has always been drawn to him. Their current assignment has them coming into contact with a troubled boy. Believed to be evil by the rest of their kind, he is supposed to be destroyed, but Regan instead tries to protect him by running away with him, and Marcus tags along — against his better judgment. Proximity to the boy has their power growing and their inhibitions shrinking, as the passion that has always simmered between them erupts. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
