Who knew that loving a Nephilim could be so dangerous.
Faelon, a 3000-year-old nephilim, fleeing a demonic master, found safety with the church. He has repaid their kindness by translating various artifacts. Father Donovan has watched as Faelon became a recluse, fearing those who would harm him.
Jax, wanting a change, moves to Salem, MA where he finds work as a churches security guard. Not believing that Faelon is a nephilim, he is forced to confront his own beliefs in the supernatural.
Can he learn to accept Faelon, and be the master he requires? Or lose the man he loves to the demons who would harm him.
3000-year-old Nephilim Faelon has been hiding for centuries in an old church, posing as a translator for ancient artifacts, hiding from a demon who kidnapped and tortured him. Jax is a regular human, tired of his old life, yearning for change, who flees to Salem to find the new life he’s been looking for. It’s there, in his new job as church security guard, that he meets Faelon. The two form a bond, but Jax has trouble believing Faelon’s story about his supernatural heritage when he first opens up to him.
Jax and Faelon are both very intriguing characters. Faelon is used to being submissive, and Jax has a tendency toward dominance. They make an excellent couple. I liked Faelon’s background story about how he became the person he was in present day, the supernatural elements, and the MC’s entire relationship. At the beginning of the book, I was reluctant to see where it would lead, but after a few chapters, I was hooked.
The writing was great. It didn’t set off into endless detail, but instead the pace was fast and descriptions detailed but not overly long. The relationship was the drive of this book, but the plot was interesting as well. A nice read for fans of paranormal romance.
