He’s waited more than 900 years to love her…

Being the Gatekeeper to Hades is no small feat, and waiting almost a millennia to meet your mate is damn near impossible. But Theo Bradford’s mark has finally surfaced on his intended. Now all he has to do is find her and convince her to embrace her supernatural heritage.

Young genius, Sadie Nowland, has got life figured out. Graduating college at the age of eighteen and accepting a six-figure job is just what she needs to prove she’s made something of herself. But when a strange tattoo mysteriously appears on her shoulder and Theo starts talking about Mates, it catapults her neatly laid out life into chaos.

Targeted by a vicious demon escaped from Hades, Sadie is thrust into the volatile world of Shomrei warriors and a connection to Theo her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. That primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could have ever imagined—and just may be the key to the world’s survival.

"Kick-ass heroine, old-fashioned morals and a world of originality." ~Romance for Every World

***3.5 stars***

This was one of those pleasant surprise reads for me, because Theo swept me up and won me over in a heartbeat with his unexpectedly charming yet alpha-male ways. He’s waited 900 years to be with his Ahavah, his mate (Edward Cullen’s got nothing on this guy!), and unsuspecting Sadie wa ...more

In this New Adult tale of Good versus Evil, Reese Monroe gives us a new take on angels and demons, with the addition of a supernatural being called a "Gatekeeper," or "Shomrei," created by the breath of God. They may look like incredibly hot humans, (male and female) but they have extraordinary powe ...more

I am going to be totally honest, when I first started this, I wasn’t sure about it. It just wasn’t clicking with me for the first couple of chapters, but I kept going.
