BLURB: Out of the wickedly inventive imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward comes a world where sin and salvation collide in a battle for the future of mankind—where a cynical fallen angel struggles against the seven deadly sins and a demon’s lure over seven chosen souls… Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re in over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too... As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when you’re trapped in a no holds barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels’s heart at risk, what in Heaven—or in Hell—will it take to save them both?

LT's REVIEW: Jim is feeling down after losing the last round of the game to Devina after she cheated. The score is 2 souls for the angels, and 1 for the demons, that’s until the Creator steps in and punishes Devina. Not by removing her win, but by giving them both the chance to win the same soul again. Matthias made the wrong choice at his crossroads which sent him to hell. He was Jim's old boss in the XOP’s and undercover clean-up crew for the government until one day he couldn't take it anymore. Unable to handle all the evil that he had done during his career, Matthias tried to comment suicide in front of Jim on one of their missions by stepping on a landmine. Instead, he lived and Jim used his suicide attempt against him promising to tell everyone if Matthias didn’t release him from XOP’s.  But with the one demon win, Matthias is sent to hell. Matthias now wakes up nude on Jim’s grave with no memory of who he used to be as the game between Jim and Devina continues to be played.
One of Mel’s biggest fears is to be in a car accident, so when she was unable to avoid a man in the middle of the road her nightmare became real. Unable to leave the side of the hurt man Mel's made it her business to help him, only to learn how scary his true self was.
Now the world is in the hands of Jim, a fallen angel who is distracted by the death of Sissy, a young girl Jim knows Devina killed. He also knows Devina hides her innocent soul. Now he is torn between bargaining one of the souls he won to free his poor Sissy.
