Persephone’s zest for life and love of bad jokes were quelled by parents who made her feel worthless. So she proved them right and became the angelic version of a rich mean girl. Until she trusted the wrong person and suffered wounds that’ll scar her for the rest of her eternal life.
Urban used to be an angelic warrior who was equal parts work and play. One day he’d had enough of a certain spoiled angel and said something he couldn’t take back. And then he found himself standing over the beautiful female, who had injuries no immortal should suffer.
During recovery, the warrior who’d verbally gutted Persephone stayed by her bedside. He even coaxed her to tell jokes again. He built her up instead of tearing her down. He helped her wonder what if.
What if her parents and the rest of the realm were wrong? What if a privileged angel with no talent could make something of herself? What if she deserved love? Urban’s with her the whole way—until danger threatens the realm and he’s the one blocking her path.
