April May Carter, a twenty-nine-year-old small town high school teacher, dreams of finding a man to whisk her away from the Hicksville she’s stuck in. She wants it all—the husband, the house, the kids, the car. But her dreams of living the perfect life are shattered during a school shooting.
Damian is supposed to keep April safe. He’s an angel, but you wouldn’t guess that judging from his attitude. A tragic event in his past has left him so bitter and resentful that he won’t let anyone get close. But the moment, Damian sees April, he’s blindsided by the beauty. She awakens a part of his soul he thought had long ago burned out.
April should hate him, but she sees through his abrasive exterior and finds the compassionate, loving man beneath. Can Damian let go of his past, accept his responsibilities, and let her love him? Or will he spend the rest of his existence alone and miserable?
Carrie Pulkinen has always been fascinated with the paranormal. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her father's insatiable love for monster movies, and you've got the perfect recipe for an exciting storyteller.
There was just not enough time in the day to go to work and try to read this story! I was drawn in quickly and didn't want to put it down. The way Carrie brings these characters together is amazing and the story line flows smoothly. My complete review will be up on Amazon tonight!
