Summary- While driving to a charming village tucked away deep in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, where she is to begin a new job teaching high school English, Katrina Burton picks up a young hitchhiker who turns to be drunk and predatory. Fearful for her safety, she lies about her destination in order to get him out of the car. But when she later discovers that he is a teacher at the same school, she finds herself feeding that initial lie with more lies.
Then Katrina meets a mysterious man. Handsome, charismatic and strong, he is exactly what she needs to extricate her from the expanding network of lies, now spinning out of control. She falls fast and hard for him.
But her perfect solution soon becomes a nightmare that lands her in the middle of a grisly murder. And Katrina’s problems don’t stop there. She must decide whether to betray her new love or to cover up the murder and hope for the best…until she discovers that the choice may not be hers to make.

Summary- Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But he’s never given a hint of wanting to be more than just her friend and kickboxing trainer.
That night he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss — and then abandons her on her front doorstep. Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori — part angel and part human — and Violet is his eternal partner.
Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. And now she’s supposed to accept that she’s some mythological soldier protecting humanity from heaven’s exiled angels? And sacrifice all of her hopes for a normal life forever?
But there’s no denying the strange changes in Violet’s body…or that Lincoln has betrayed her. He had a plan for meeting her, getting to know her and training her — without ever telling her the truth. How could she ever trust him again?
Enter Phoenix. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her. As an Exile, he is not to be trusted, yet he’s the only one there to pick up the pieces and protect her after Lincoln’s lies. In a world of dark and light, he is all shades of gray. And he’s inspiring feelings that might just push her over the edge.
As Violet gets caught up in a world where angels seek vengeance and humans are warriors, she must choose her path. She’s always been strong, but will she be strong enough? Lincoln vs. Phoenix. Angel vs. Exile. Which will she…Embrace?
