Embrace the geek, save the world…
Socially awkward geneticist Quinn Strickland has willingly forgone the pleasures in life to reach her career objectives. Alone and approaching thirty, she uses her independence to mitigate any risk of a broken heart. Her strategy works until the day a handsome stranger bursts into her lab and her orderly plans shoot straight to Hades. He claims to be her personal divine protector, a powerful, ancient warrior sent to defend a prophetic time bomb existing within her own genetic code.
The Scion's alpha-geek Wyck is offered the opportunity of his immortal lifetime as head of his own covert operation. He arrives at a Colorado lab expecting starched white coats and sterile surroundings—not a redheaded spitfire in charge of both his project and his libido. His skills have carried him from the battlefields of ancient England to the pits of Hell and he has no plans to be felled by one woman, regardless of her shag-worthy charms. Divine duty requires him to protect the apocalyptic Seal encrypted within Quinn's DNA, but his heart has other ideas. When his personal feelings interfere with his age-old vendetta, he's forced to decide between desire and retribution.

Divine duty and a Scion's heart compete in this riveting paranormal romance in the ongoing war to stop the destruction of the human race.
Wyck's divine duty is to protect the apocalyptic Seal encrypted within Quinn's DNA, but his personal feelings interfere with his age-old vendetta and he's forced to decide between desire and retribution.
This fast-paced and smooth-flowing plot keeps readers shivering in anticipation with suspense, drama and romance. The author paints vivid pictures of each scene with well-written details that capture the imagination and the well-orchestrated suspense draws the reader deeper into the story. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader's attention from the very beginning and the intriguing story keeps curiosity and fascination high, ensuring that the reader wants to know more.
The attraction between Quinn and Wyck is strong but the relationship is complicated by Quinn's past and Wyck's vendetta and the drive to succeed in his mission. The reader can't help but get caught up in all the drama as the enemy creates all kinds of mishaps and problems for Quinn and her boss, which in turn creates problems for Wyck.
Lucifer, of course, is interfering for his own personal agenda that has the reader wanting to know just what he's up to now. Divinity has things in place to keep the seals safe and Wyck is one of the aces up her sleeve, even if he is a little resistant. All of the drama and excitement means there is never a dull moment, keeping readers on their toes.
I can't wait to find out which Scion's book is next and which Seal comes into play and just what Lucifer's got up his sleeve. I just know he's up to no good.
