In the old world shadows of Providence, Rhode Island, Nina Grey finds herself the center of a war between Hell and Earth.
Struggling with her father’s recent death, Nina meets Jared Ryel by chance…or so she believes. Although his stunning good looks and mysterious talents are a welcome distraction, it soon becomes clear that Jared knows more about Nina than even her friends at Brown University. When questions outnumber answers, Jared risks everything to keep the woman he was born to save—by sharing the secret he was sworn to protect.

When her father’s former associates begin following her in the dark, Nina learns that her father is not the man she thought he was, but a thief who stole from demons. Searching for the truth behind her father’s death, Nina stumbles upon something she never expected—something Hell wants—and only she holds the key.
   I loved this book! Jamie McGuire really does a great job of pulling you into the story and keeping you interested until the last page. I stayed up all night just to see how it would end.

  The characters are well developed and likable. Nina, while making some stupid decisions (that made me want to smack her lol), was just a nice average person that I could relate to. While she comes from money, she doesn't seem pretentious. She isn't as tough as a lot of leading women in the paranormal romance genre, but I think it just makes her seem more real. Jared is a complete sweetheart, it really shows in the story just how much he loves Nina. My favorite character has got to be Claire though, and I really hope to see more of her in the future.
