Synopsis: True love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Jaden pretending not to notice. . . .
Jaden McEntyre and Parker Whalen are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past-a reputation-and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there's no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love.
As they bond over Edith Wharton's tragic novella, Ethan Frome, the "bad boy" vibe Parker plays begins to dissipate. Soon, Jaden finds herself shedding her own "good girl" image: sneaking around to be with him, confiding in him, and ultimately falling hard for this leather-wearing, motorcycle-driving loner who plays into the rebel stereotype.
Still, Jaden can't shake the feeling that there's more to Parker than he's letting on. He's hiding something from her, and discovering the truth means reconciling the Parker she's grown to love with the person he really is. Because it's possible that his life inside the classroom-everything Jaden knows-is one, massive lie.
Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Genesis Green is living anything but a charmed life. As far back as she can remember, she and her mother have been bouncing from town to town, struggling to survive on Ramen noodles and minimum wage.
Late one evening, Genesis and her boyfriend are in a car accident. Carter’s SUV rolls, and Genesis finds herself injured, lying on the pavement. Just before she slips into the darkness an unfamiliar voice calls out to her, promising everything will be fine.
His name is Seth, and he’s the Guardian assigned to protect her.
When Genesis begins having bizarre visions, the Guardians believe she could be useful to them. To Seth, this means stepping into the middle of an epic battle between angels and demons. Even with supernatural protection, there’s no guarantee he can keep Genesis safe, something that's becoming more important to him by the day.
The line between reality and the celestial becomes so blurred that Genesis can't decide who’s real and who’s otherworldly, and worse: who's good and who's evil.
Synopsis: After the tragic death of a friend at the hands of demons, Genesis Green moves into the pool house on ex-boyfriend Carter's estate. Still under the watchful eye of Seth, her Guardian, she lives and breathes a single purpose: Vengeance.
When the Guardian Council discovers Genesis is serious about taking Viola out of this world, they send Mara, a warrior, to help prepare her for her greatest, final battle.
Though she's growing stronger by the day, her visions are becoming increasingly unreliable.
When a single act threatens to separate Genesis from Seth forever, she'll face the most painful decision yet to save the Guardian she loves.
Synopsis: Genesis Green's life is unraveling at the seams. The Council has stripped her protection, Viola has taken Seth, and she and Carter have fled South Marshall. When an opportunity to save her fallen angel arises, she'll have one chance to find and eliminate the most powerful demon walking the earth.
Enter Luke Castellani—charming, dangerous, compelling—someone who can give Genesis everything she desires.
With her life (and soul) on the line, the greatest, final sacrifice will be made to put an end to the evil threatening her world.
