Back Cover Blurb:
In the wake of an Italian mobster’s death, the archangels charge Immortal Templar Knight Caradoc of Asterleigh with protecting a necklace that contains Christ’s tears. He vows to bring the relic home, never imagining he’ll have to battle Isabelle Speranza, the only woman he’s ever loved and whom he left in a futile attempt to protect her heart. Discovering she’s his fated seraph changes everything. For the dark lord Azazel is hunting the Templar mates.
Isabelle lost her heart to Caradoc in a whirlwind affair abroad, only to be abandoned in the middle of the night. When she encounters Caradoc in Sicily three years later, her buried anger fuels desire that won’t be denied. Yet a dark shadow threatens their reunion. Azazel has discovered her greatest weakness, and her dreams promise unspeakable horrors if she fails to procure the sacred necklace.
As danger stalks her, Isabelle reveals an unbelievable secret. To save them both, Caradoc must accept her truths, even if it means turning from everything he’s sworn to uphold.
Whence comes the teacher, she who is blind shall follow.
The one who digs in dust precedes the finding of the jewel.
And she who understands the sword precludes the greatest loyalty.
When darkness rapes the land, the seraphs shall purify the Templar
and lead the sacred swords to victory.
– Ancient Prophecy of the Knights Templar
