Fantasy Romance, Paranormal Romance
Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Fire, Ares was banished from his home by his father, Hades, two centuries ago and given a new duty and purpose—to keep our world and his from colliding in a calamity foreseen by the Moirai.
Together with his six brothers, he fights to defend the gates to the Underworld from daemons bent on breaching them and gaining entrance to that forbidden land, striving to protect his home from their dark influence. Caged by the manifestation of his power, held apart from those he loves by his own fire and starved of physical contact, Ares lives a cold existence driven by duty and the desire to return to his world.
Until his world collides with a daemon who steals his power and a mortal female who shatters the ice around his heart and awakens the true fire within him—a soul-stirring passion both dangerous and seductive.
Megan has wandered far from her home, driven from everyone she loves by the devastating realisation that she is different to them all. Unsure who to trust in the world, she keeps to herself, until a fateful stormy night brings a temptingly handsome warrior crashing into her life and into her heart—a warrior who seems to hold powers more frightening and marvelous than her own.
When the New York gate comes under threat, and Ares is put to the test, will he choose his duty and regain the power he needs in order to save his world or will he choose the desires of his heart and sacrifice his fire so he can be with the woman becoming his whole world?

Megan has always known she was different, which was something she could never share with anyone else. This secret causes her to be a loner who is untrusting of others. However, during a dark and stormy night, fate puts her in a place where all she's thought to be true is called into question. There are others like her – one arrestingly handsome male sparks something deep inside her.
Ares is one of seven powerful warrior brothers, who are Gods that have been given the task of protecting the Gates to the Underworld. One night while hot on the trail of a daemon, he crosses paths with a mortal female. His first instinct is to protect her, but the daemon is not about to go quietly into the night.
I am a huge fan of Felicity Heaton. She can take a story about Gods and put such a spin on it that you'll truly start to believe they exist. Her battles between good and evil are epic, and this first installment is no exception. The connection between Megan and Ares is electric and the progression of their relationship is sweet and thoughtful. If this book is any indication, this series is going to be off-the-charts good!
In my opinion, no one writes Angels, Gods, Demons and Vampires better than Felicity Heaton. She has found a formula that works, and her imagination knows no bounds. I can't wait for the next installment to see where she takes us!
