Lucien Altaira has been roaming the earth since he fell, wearing the same face and making the same Deal: your soul in exchange for what you most desire in this life.

Until now.
Lumen Scipio has spent her life hidden away in convents, locked up in libraries, and protected by the most formidable vampire family on the planet, but it wasn’t until she shared a kiss with the Devil that she had any desire to break away from the blood-ties that bind. Selling her soul to guarantee her family’s safety might not have been as selfless as it seemed, but as Lumen falls head-over-heels for the enemy, she must find a way protect the world from the most destructive weapon in Heaven’s holy arsenal: herself.
Soon, Lumen’s caught up in a game of secrets and manipulation, the center of a celestial standoff an eternity in the making, because the archangels have awoken, the apocalypse is nigh, and the world’s only hope lies in saving the one divine being who fell hardest of them all:
Jessamin Rivera has spent the better part of a decade gaining the trust of one of the world’s most powerful vampires. Tasked with keeping an eye on Caspian Declan’s most lucrative asset, Jess’s life is clicking along according to plan until a run-in with one infamous rockstar alters her entire trajectory. Kidnapped and force-turned, hers is a one-in-a-million outcome, but it’s falling for a vampire hunter in the aftermath that’s the true long shot she never could have anticipated.
Asher Reece always knew he’d take over his father’s company… someday. Someday, after university. Someday, after a shot at Olympic gold. But all that changes the night his parents are murdered, and without warning, Asher finds himself irrevocably tethered to Phantom Firearms, a company that specializes in neutralizing threats to the human populace. Now he’s the one holed up in a warehouse full of misfits, the keeper of the very same secrets that got his parents killed. Asher’s well aware that it’s only a matter of time before he ends up in the crosshairs himself, but of every contingency plan he ever created, the last thing he could have anticipated was one little spitfire-turned-vampire who’s intent on avenging her own death.
Armed with a list of names--a veritable Who’s-Who of supernatural creatures--Jess throws herself headlong into a hunt of her own, determined to track down the people that stole her mortality. It’s not until Asher follows her straight into the center of the elite immortal echelon that she realizes just how deep the web goes. Armed with nothing but their wits, they’ll need to flip the script and submit to a power play neither of them could have anticipated.
