Lilith Caldwell, a witch with no magic, has returned to her family home after twenty years, bringing along with her the evil entity which has haunted her since she left. Once home, it disappears and she is ecstatic, not even the brooding, bad-tempered, hot-as-hell demon, who might just be her mate, can dampen her joy. A witch from her old coven offers her the High Priestess role, she just has to depose the old one and sacrifice a demon to get it. She will have to choose what she wants more ... her coven or James.

James Pasquino, a guardian demon vampire, hunts rogue vampires and takes orders from the Watchers, the fallen angels tasked to watch over the world. They assign him with the protection of a girl, Lilith, one who will prevent Armageddon. Centuries ago he failed to protect another girl and it haunts him still. When he meets her he believes such a young, delicate girl needs protecting, especially from his hulking self and his insatiable desire for her. There are many who want Lilith for their own means, but he is determined not to fail this time.

Scores of guardians are vanishing all over the world at an alarming rate, leaving the world vulnerable to rogue vampires. It seems that the end of the world is nigh. Despite the dangers happening, an intense love is growing between Lilith and James. Only a few things can stand in the way, like a possible demon sacrifice, a power hungry witch, and their personal hang-ups. Will Lilith choose between her coven or James and the fierce love that has grown between them? Will James realize in time that she is the key to the redemption he has longed for?

This was an amazing story with Crescent’s unique twists to familiar paranormal aspects and great characters. Lilith can be goofy at times, especially during her first attempt to seduce James, but when things get serious so does she. James looks like a thug, but it hides his sense of honor and how gentle and thoughtful he can be towards those weaker. This story has a bit of everything; a riveting world, scary monsters, a sexy hero, lovable heroine, suspense, captivating romance, and a touch of humor to keep it from being too serious. This is a great start to a new paranormal series and I would strongly urge you to check it out if you are in the market for a new one.
