    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about--his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin diPietro has surrendered himself to his business--until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior, and a woman who makes him question his destiny. With an ancient evil ready to claim him, Vin has to work with a fallen angel not only to win his beloved over ... but to redeem his very soul."--Page 4 of cover.

The hero of Ward's new series is Jim Heron, a construction worker whose world is rocked one night outside a bar by a mysterious, beautiful woman in a blue dress. The next time he spots her—on the arm of the man commissioning his latest project—he trips and gets himself electrocuted. Jim's near-death experience brings him into contact with four angels, who tell him he is all that stands between humanity and eternal damnation. He's tasked with saving seven souls, the first being the man at the construction site, wealthy Vin DiPietro. Vin has everything money can buy, and he's about to get engaged to the sexy Devina, the woman Jim slept with, until he lays eyes on a beautiful prostitute named Marie-Therese and falls head-over-heels in love. Jim must determine with which woman his salvation lies, and which promises just the opposite. The opening novel in Ward's new Fallen Angels series is an inventive and engaging dark paranormal romance. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
