But Gregory also needs her help. Interdimensional rifts are opening, spilling supernatural creatures into the world of the humans. Locating and closing the gateways takes a team of two – an angel and a demon.
It’s the opportunity Sam has been waiting for, the very thing that might allow demons and angels to put aside nearly three million years of hate. But the gem has a dark power - one that could shatter any hope of peace between heaven and hell. Which task takes priority? Sam is at a crossroads, where either choice leads to a dark future.
Dozens of different diseases and pests have suddenly infected the California winery’s grapes in a biblical-scale blight. The warmonger she thought was a one-night stand has shown up uninvited with an indecent proposal. And now she finds she’ll be working side-by-side with an elf—a horticultural “expert” brought in to heal the plague-ridden vines, who would just as soon kill her as pass her the pruning shears.
The final blow comes when she’s assaulted in the vineyard while trying to heal the infected vines under cover of darkness, and threatened with worse if she continues. Heal the vines and risk her life by angering two plague demons, or turn her back on the winery and the dying plants, and walk away? For a half-elf/half-succubus, there’s only one clear choice.
