Romance is a myth…

At least, that’s what twenty-year-old Verity Landon is beginning to think. She’s supposed to be studying to be an artist, but she can’t seem to get past the fiasco that was high school—which left her a social media sex scandal survivor. She’s pretty sure she’s going to end up single for all eternity.

Exhibit A: Her latest boyfriend just broke up with her during happy hour.

Second: She’s a huge intimacy-phobe.

Last Straw: She has a rabid crush on her boss—the one guy in her life who’s off limits.

She needs serious help in the love department.

Enter Finbar MacNeil; snarky Irishman, rebellious musician, a bit of a mess, and the exact opposite of what she always goes for. What could possibly go wrong?

Rating:

Sage is eighteen, down on her luck, and struggling to survive on the streets of Los Angeles. Everything changes the night she’s invited to a party — one that turns out to be a trap.

Thrust into a magical world hidden within the City of Angels, Sage discovers that she’s the daughter of a Celtic goddess, with powers that are only in their infancy. Now that she is of age, she’s asked to pledge her service to one of the five deities, all keen on winning her favor by any means possible. She has to admit that she’s tempted — especially when this new life comes with spells, Hollywood glam, and a bodyguard with secrets of his own. Not to mention a prince whose proposal could boost her rank in the Otherworld.

As loyalties shift, and as the two men vie for her attention, Sage tries to figure out who to trust in a realm she doesn’t understand. One thing’s for sure: the trap she’s in has bigger claws than she thought. And it’s going to take a lot more than magic for this Celtic demigoddess to make it out alive.

Aidan O’Linn’s childhood ended the night he saw a demon kill his mother and mark his sister, Ava, with Darkness. Since then, every three years the demons have returned to try to claim her. Living in the gritty, forgotten corners of Los Angeles, Aidan has managed to protect his sister, but he knows that even his powers to fight demons and speak dead languages won’t keep her safe for much longer.

In their company, Aidan believes he’s finally found a haven for Ava. But when he meets Kara, a broken girl who can spin a hypnotic web of passionate energy, he awakens powers he didn’t know he had―and unleashes a new era of war between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness.
