Two star-crossed souls discover that their fates are intertwined—for better or worse—in the second book in the Beyond series of paranormal romances that began with The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love.
Ryan Love’s life is about to go up in flames—literally—when a mystical being named Sabelle appears, claiming to be from the Beyond—the realm of heaven, hell, and mysteries both awesome and terrifying. As Ryan’s family business and home are destroyed in a freak explosion, Sabelle saves him just in time. So why does Ryan feel like she’s the one who needs saving? He wants to resist this dangerous attraction, but how can he fight a fate this tempting?
Sabelle is a powerful oracle who has broken the laws of the Beyond to save Ryan’s life, but once she meets Ryan, everything changes. Ryan steals her heart and awakens her passions, making her long to be human. But corruption is seeping out of the Beyond and Sabelle must choose between saving the fate of mankind and following her heart. Is she Ryan’s fate or the destiny he won’t survive?
Ryan Love's life hangs in the balance when a strange woman pops in to save the day in this lusterless sequel to The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love. Bar owner Ryan is intrigued by gorgeous, confused Sabelle, despite her ludicrous claim that his apartment and business are about to disintegrate in an epic explosion. After her prediction comes true, he gets more open-minded. Crashing at his sister's place for the night, he and Sabelle get it on in a too-early love scene lacking any emotional connection. Sabelle is a seer from the Beyond, a parallel universe teeming with demons, reapers, and fates who can make humans do terrible things. She believes she has been sent to Ryan's dimension not only to rescue him but to save her own kind. The truth shifts her from architect of her own story to pawn of destiny in a heartbeat. Improbable insta-love between alpha jerk Ryan and ditzy Sabelle leads to a neatly constructed ending that satisfies despite the unbelievable character actions.
