    Chapter 1


    Fate was a bitch. And man, did Raven know it. Thanks to Fate, he found himself hunkered down amongst the dark shadows, several stories above a shady university courtyard, watching her, his assigned Chosen.

    The weathered building provided the perfect cover; chipped midnight concrete tiles lined the pitched roof and tall twin Gothic spires stretched toward the cloudless sky, their shadows extended past him like long ghostly fingers reaching over the edge. Fatigue cramped his thighs from the two or so hours he'd tortured himself in this position.

    God, he was weary of it.

    Of all of it.

    He’d lost count of how many hours he spent perched in this very spot, protecting her. While she ate lunch at the wooden benches, nestled between the ancient pine trees or curled up on a rug reading one of her many novels. Countless times, he’d longed to stretch alongside her as she basked under the warm rays.

    Today, she said farewell to her colleagues and life as she knew it. Put the horrors of that night in the courtyard behind her.

    Having her closer was gonna make his job a helluva lot easier. A bonus not to have to fly so goddamn far.

    Now the hard work began, for both of them.

    If only he could shake the nagging ache in his chest. He should want nothing more than for her to follow her destiny. As a Chosen, it was what she was born to do. A rare mortal created by Fate to fulfill an extraordinary destiny, one who would succeed in tipping the scales back in Fate’s favor, contributing to her greater plan. Whatever that was.

    And he was the Guardian Fate had assigned to keep her alive so she could fulfill her Chosen path. His number one task was to protect her against the Fallen; those pieces of shit dark angels who chose to fall from the Heavens and reside in the fiery pits of Hell. Their sole mission: Capture the brightest souls and lure them into the darkness. Each soul taken tore apart Fate’s plans, and there was no brighter soul than one of her Chosen mortals.

    No way would that happen on his watch.

    But lately, this pull, this unfamiliar tug in his chest grew. And it clouded his judgement.

    Time spent hiding in the shadows, watching over her, had only consumed him with the need to know her; her likes, dislikes, what she thought as she twirled a strand of chestnut hair between her delicate fingers.

    Hunger to touchher consumed him. To step free from the shadows and let her see him. Truly see him.

    Raven massaged the back of his neck, again, not that it helped. He couldn’t stop the heat scorching through his veins each time he spotted her, the pounding in his chest at the mere mention of her name. His inability to focus without her near.

    No. He couldn’t risk causing a ripple in her path, prolonging—or worse, alteringher destiny.

    Pissing off Fate wasn’t wise; he’d learned that lesson a long time ago.

    After this long, he was thankful to have a Chosen to protect, a distraction from the centuries of fighting the Fallen.

    Snap the hell out of it, Raven.



Sensually gripping

An engrossing, deeply emotional story. Amazing can hardly describe the sensual connection between Raven and Tayla. Will look forward to the next Fallen Guardians book!


    Loved this! A sexy and sensual paranormal romance!

    The cover of the story drew me in to read it. I loved how mysterious and brooding the male hero Raven looked.

    This has a unique world building storyline with angels, the fallen and Fate. Raven and Tayla had great chemistry. He goes to great lengths to protect the woman he loves. Everyone will fall in love with Raven, and Tayla is relatable.

    I also enjoyed the secondary character Raine - an expensive-stiletto-wearing badass female fighter.

    Looking forward to reading more in the series.
