Remember the Archangels' mission? Satan has found a loophole in the rules that govern his battle against Good. The Archangel Uriel sends twelve Warrior Archangels to Earth on a mission to even the odds.
Each Archangel has one month to find a couple, unite them, and use their union's power to create the Holy Warriors needed to defend the world against Satan's unholy creations.
But the mission isn't so simple when inheriting Humanity comes with challenges beyond the Angel's training, and every milestone in the couple's relationship effects the triumvirate's strength.
Kassern and Dorn have finished forming their triumvirates—oh wait, back up a minute—make that quadumvirates. Kassern had some difficulty dealing with his new human appetites and ended up taking a wife. Commander Uriel has decided Kassern's indiscretion upset the entire power balance. The only solution is for all the archangels to find wives.
And now it's Toren's turn, but the enemy is farther ahead than the archangels anticipated, so the archangels must accomplish the unthinkable in half the time.
True to his mercurial nature, Toren does things his own way and refuses to follow the formula. With his sights set on a lady rancher, he has his hands full studying to be a cowboy, wrangling his humans into the quadumvirate and hog-tying demons. He finds time to keep the arrogant foreign soldier in line and set a Rodeo Queen straight. All that’s left is to get them to fall in love in thirty minutes or less as all hell breaks loose.
Here's a tiny little taste of Toren, just to whet your appetite:
Toren has just shaved his head because he had to shave part of Sam's hair away to treat a burn she received saving a newborn calf in a burning barn. Sam pretended cutting all her hair short meant nothing, but he knows it did. So he shows his understanding.
Sam was suddenly at a weird loss for words while standing there in the hallway feeling like she owed the man something more than her damn sarcasm. “Come here.”
She walked ahead to the bathroom and looked back to ensure he followed, bristling at herself for the crass command like he was some subservient dog. Hell she didn’t talk to animals in the tone she used with him.
He followed with a slight smile and she wondered what was going through that beautiful hairless head of his. She opened the bathroom door and turned on the light, then got the stool from next to the tub and set it in front of the mirror. “You missed a few spots.” She cleared her throat a little trying to soften her voice. “If you don’t mind…I’d like to get them for you.”
She fought to hold his gaze and not get all dizzy. Such beautiful eyes. Eyes that bore into hers without hesitation or inhibition. Bold and demanding. Devouring even. She released a breath when he broke eye contact but then he removed his shirt in one move. Lordy help her.
Now she didn’t know where to look. Not meeting his gaze meant staring at his chest. Damn she’d never been so torn. His gaze, meet his gaze.
When she did, she forgot what the hell she was supposed to be doing. She closed her eyes, focusing.
“You okay?” Deep voice. Small space. Intimate as hell.
“I’m fine.” Still not looking. “Just um. Thinking. Sit. Please.”
Sam stared at the back of his perfect head and had the sense to get the razor. “Can’t have you halfass shaving your head now can I?”
“No ma'am.” His tone vibrated through her womanly parts.
“Whooowee, hot in this little box, told them they needed to put a damn window.” She stroked his scalp looking for those spots she’d seen. No sooner had her fingers touched his head than she got lost in the feel of him. So damn soft. Wow. She turned on the hot water and stood to his right and slowly ran the razor over his head. She methodically repeated the steps in a pattern to make sure she got every spot, pretending his head was just another animal she was shearing.
Finally done, she wet her hands and passed them over his head to make sure she got it all. He made a sound that resembled maybe a moan or a pained grunt and her fingers slowed. “Irritating?”
Her heart skipped several beats then raced to catch up. He turned his head and looked up at her. She removed her hands from his head, realizing she was done and had no legitimate reason to keep them there. He reached for one of her hands and before she realized what he was doing, he rubbed her palm across his chest. Drying it. She couldn’t take her eyes from his as he slid it slowly over his hard muscles. Warm muscles. She couldn’t keep from pressing her fingers either, to feel him. The man was damn immaculate. Very nice for touching. And hell, tasting.
He stood up and she was suddenly swallowed by his towering frame. The man was…huge. Dangerous in so many ways. Especially those eyes right in that second. Hooded with…sex appeal.
She blinked several times at his strange words. “Thank you?” Whatever for? For touching him? For liking him? For wanting him? Wanting him to kiss her? In that very second? She wondered if he could read her mind with the way he suddenly stared at her mouth, contemplating. She licked her lips, oh my God, why? To entice? Yes, definitely. It worked.
He slowly lowered his head, his brows drawn, his aim her mouth. She parted her lips, waiting for it. To be kissed. She closed her eyes and then opened them when his warm breath seemed to increase next to her lips. His brows were drawn hard, like something hurt.
Worried he’d not do it, she reached up and stroked her fingers across his face. Then tip-toed and closed the distance, pressing her lips into his full soft ones.
A guttural sound filled his throat and the next second he captured her face and neck in one large hand and plundered the hell out of her mouth with his skillful tongue. Sam inhaled as he boldly and hungrily invaded her, telling her just what he wanted from her. All and everything, right in that second.
His other hand was on the buttons of her shirt when Kassie’s scream pierced the air. “Shit!” Sam gasped and reluctantly pulled back with a moan that told of years of unmet need.
“Glory is delivering now!” Kassie screamed from the bottom of the stairs.
“What?” Toren demanded.
“My horse. She’s a rogue. She's genuinely tried to kill every human that gets within reach."
Toren flew down the stairs after her and they both ran to the barn.
