When Death falls in love with a saint, there's holy hell to pay. Sara Lane expects to die young, but when the time comes, she's not ready. She needs two more weeks to finish a homeless shelter before winter sets in and people die on the streets. Who does a girl have to sleep with to live a few extra days? How about the sexiest, most dangerous of all bad boys-Death himself? Cain's job as a designated death dealer is clear. Kill and move on. Don't get attached. Don't feel. But when Sara pleads to cut a deal for more time, Cain is tempted by an unexpected craving for this beautiful, courageous woman. As their lips meet, her life force shakes him to his bones, seals the bargain-and breaks all the rules. Keeping Sara alive is a dangerous proposition. The Powers That Be are furious and unleash bloodthirsty demons to steal Sara's soul from Death-the one man who's hell-bent on saving her life. Warning: This book contains the sexiest of all bad boys, a woman desperate to get what she wants, deadly soul-sucking demons, surprise visits by Biblical characters, frog grenades, very bad dogs, sacrifice, redemption and eternal love.
