- Book 2 of Fallen Guardians
An immortal without a soul is bad enough. But when his only tether to remaining honorable is his addiction to bone-crushing pain, it makes Blaéz a dangerously loose cannon.
A Guardian sworn to protect mortals from supernatural evil, Blaéz straddles the edge of darkness as his needs grow. When a good deed brings him to the doorstep of a female unlike any other, one whose touch ignites emotions long lost in the hellish pits of Tartarus, he's determined not to lose her. She belongs to him. But she's human. Forbidden. And bringing her into his life may just destroy them both.
Darci Callahan has given up on love. But when a lethally handsome stranger suddenly appears late one night, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the captivating man with the pale, empty eyes—a man who awakens in her a desire she never believed possible. Except Blaéz brings more than unexpected passion to her life, he brings danger.
In this treacherous new world of gods and demons, Darci soon discovers a heart-shattering truth and the twisted games the gods play. Caught in the crosshairs, she's forced to accept that, sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you have to love them enough to let them go...

He is immortal but he has no soul. He has no joy. He only has his job as a Guardian and pain to keep him on task. It all changes when he meets her. When he is with her, he can feel again. Demons and Gods seek to interfere in their love and they will have to battle them all to be together.
Darci is a librarian with a boss who likes to keep her under control and take all the joy out of life. She goes through the motions to find love but never feels a real connection to any man. The only men in her life are her brother and nephew. When her nephew gets into trouble, it is Blaéz who brings him to her. Blaéz has been without a soul since he was taken out of Hell and assigned as a Guardian to the Earth. It is his job to keep things in balance and prevent those from Hell from harming humans. Beyond that responsibility, he has no life. The only time he has anything that feels like real emotions is when he is in a battle. It doesn't matter if it is in a cage or in Hell, getting bloody makes him feel alive.
Blaéz and Darci have intense chemistry from their very first meeting. He looks like a dangerous man and much more like a biker than a protector. She sees through that facade and wants to meet the real man. He knows she is important to him but very concerned that a connection between them will bring those after him to her door. Blaéz has been keeping secrets from everyone but he has a hard time resisting her and their connection. He tries to introduce some distance between them but these two can not be kept apart.
Blaéz is a very complicated character. He has a long history of pain that has made him into an intriguing man. As I write this review, I have difficulty keeping out the many surprises you learn as you read about these characters. I love surprises and don't want to ruin anything so I am having to be more vague about the details. I can assure you that the surprises in store are well worth the wait.
Darci's past makes a lot more sense once you learn about their special connection. It is their connection that makes everything between them seem so much more intimate. I enjoyed the scenes most when it was just the two of them together feeling that connection. There was a real energy to their time together.
Blaéz and Darci getting together gives them the piece that was missing in their lives. It is the difference between living and existing. It is rare for two people to connect on so many levels. They would risk everything to keep each other safe from harm. On the surface, their connection makes little sense but as secrets are revealed it becomes clear that they were born to be together. If you love paranormal romances with characters that heat up the page, you don't want to miss this book and all its surprises.
