Haley Tillman is the perennial good girl. She has a steady job as a loan officer, boring clothes and no social life. But when she’s alone, she writes all her fantasies in her diary, hoping that someday they’ll become real. All alone after being stood up, she wishes for a man. Suddenly, her doorbell rings. On the other side of the door is sexy nephilim Ryder. Half angel, half mortal, Ryder spends his time answering the wishes of humans. When he hears Haley’s, he cannot help but offer his services. Being an immortal has been tough on Ryder. He would like to be in a relationship, but it’s forbidden. After spending some quality time with Haley, he realizes that being immortal is not all that it’s cracked up to be. (SOURCEBOOKS, Sep., 272 pp., $14.99)
