Blurb: They see death. Can they share a life?
Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford. A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

Review:  Always trying to keep to herself, Ruth has never understood her ability to see a person’s aura. That is why it was such a shock when she bumped into someone that didn’t have one. Tall, dark hair and stunning ice-gray eyes looked back at her with a raised eyebrow. She stared at him in silent disbelief before hurrying away just wanting to be alone.
Taking souls to be judged in Purgatory was Deacon’s responsibility as a reaper. As he stood there looking down at Ruth he was shaken. Petite with long dark curly hair, he found her to be beautiful but was taken back to find she had no aura. Knowing she wasn’t just a human, he knew he had to find out who and what she was.
A paranormal world with angels, demons, imps, witches, valkyrie and featuring reapers make for a fascinating story. While Ruth at first doesn’t have a lot of confidence, with Deacon by her side she soon matches his lead characteristics and steps into the role that was meant to be hers. The secondary characters contribute strong roles in completing a well rounded story that is an enjoyable read.
