"New York Times" bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks pens the next book in her witty "Love at Stake" series...... Marielle Quatriduum is an Angel of Death. But when she refuses to take another life, she is stripped of her wings and cast to earth. Sentenced to a life among mankind, but alone - as her slightest touch will kill any mortal - Marielle’s greatest wish is to be welcomed back to the Heavens. Then she meets Connor Buchanan, a man with unbearable pain of his own, Marielle is astonished to find she can touch him... Connor, a five-hundred-year-old vampire, has taken more lives than he can bear. Riddled with guilt for the rampage he went on after his human wife’s murder, Connor knows he is the last man on earth worthy of an angel. To make matters worse, the more he touches Marielle, the more she can see into his soul. How can he love her without revealing to her his darkest secrets? As much as Connor wants to keep the beauty for himself, it seems his only path to redemption is to help her get back home.
