Publisher's Summary

Grace Masters always dreamed of a family she could call her own and always knew that for her, those dreams would never come true. Yet here she is, in an old Victorian home, living and loving under the cover of night.
Who knew the source of her lifelong torment was really her gift as a Daughter of Man or that this gift could be controlled and used for something good? Who knew there was another race called the Paenitentia who live side by side with humans? Who knew that demons were real? Grace certainly didn't until one fateful night when her world falls apart and comes together again in a place where she finally belongs.
Sometimes a person just knows when something is right and destined to be. Sometimes convincing someone else of that fact is a little more difficult. Canaan ad Simeon is that someone else. Canaan is Liege Lord to a house of guardians whose job is to protect the race from a demon threat many no longer believe in. Already breaking away from the outdated traditions that are depleting their numbers and threatened by a hierarchy resistant to change, the last thing Canaan needs is to fall for this innocently sexy Daughter of Man. But fall he does, with a mixture of comedy, drama, and romance that will touch your heart.

Jacqueline Rhoades has created a funny, sexy, and action packed world that I love. You'll also love the misfit house of Guardian's.

Holly Adams performance is spot on with the different accents and inflections. Especially Canaan and Nico very sexy.

Absolutely worth a credit. This is a series I will listen to again and again.

Another wonderful series by this author

Any additional comments?

A great beginning to this series with wonderful characters full of laughter and a little heartbreak. At first I was a little loss but it didn’t take long to find me. The author gives you a wonderful plot that pulls you in and takes you way as one group gives everything they have to fight demons and be who they are. Grace stays pretty much to herself and the one true friend she has. If she is in a crowd her head feels like it is going to explode she finds it is easier if she just stays in the shadows. That all changes one night when she is at a club a stranger takes her friend out back. Grace sees more than a stranger but a monster as she goes to help her friend she doesn’t believe her eyes and what they are telling her. What happens next will make you want to cry, scream, laugh and make you want to jump in and help Grace and her friend all at the same time.

Holly Adams does a great job of narration it did take me a little time to get into her since she has done some of the Wolver audios I kind of kept her voice for them. Once I got over that and let the story take me way I was pulled in to this wonderful plot and all the supernaturals. Her voice is always a pleasure to listen to, her tones are nice and even with wonderful emotions, there are no background noises just clean easy listening. Her male voices are as wonderful as her female. She gives you a strong powerful listen as she adds humor and laughter to her voice. It is always a pleasure listening to this narrator.

I loved the characters the twins will pull you in and keep you laughing at their pranks. The uncle is a delight once he gets over wanting your blood. Canaan is something else I just love him. Grace is a delight with her sense of humor. Both are very strong willed and bullhead. The author pulls you in with mixture of comedy, drama, and romance that will touch your heart, make you laugh and at times want to hit some heads together. This author puts a new twist on a story that is as old as times. She gives you entertainment like you have never seen it. I own this whole series but I am torn whether to read it or wait for the audios. Both are very entertaining. This is an author you do not want to miss each of her series are wonderful, different filled with humor, romance along with outstanding characters. I can highly recommend any book she writes I own most of them. I hope you pick up this along with the other books she writes you won’t be disappointed.
