A Golden Heart winner for Best Paranormal Romance.
For centuries Lachlan MacGregor has battled demon thieves for the souls of the dead, carrying out his pledge to deliver them into Heaven or Hell. But his greatest challenge as a Soul Gatherer is now among the living.
Struggling to connect with her troubled teenage daughter Emily, artist Rachel Lewis turns to her enigmatic yet strangely compelling neighbor Lachlan for advice. As Lachlan soon discovers, the young girl has fallen victim to a seductive demon-a specter from the past using the unsuspecting women to fulfill an ancient prophecy and settle a hellish score with Lachlan himself.
In the race to save Emily and avert a disastrous power shift among the deities, Rachel and Lachlan forge an uncommon bond. But how can Lachlan tell the mortal woman he's falling in love with that the next soul he's been enlisted to gather-and deliver beyond-is her daughter's?
