Series: The Hunter #1
When Ashley Hunter inherits the Inn where her father mysteriously vanished years ago, she jumps at the chance to finally uncover the truth about his disappearance. But soon after taking ownership of the decrepit building, Ashley realizes she’s in for far more than she bargained. Not only has she inherited answers to many sought-after questions, she’s also inherited spirits, demons and even fallen angels! Then Cristian arrives, a gorgeous man who insists he merely needs a room to rent. She believes him, until one by one her ghosts start disappearing…
As a fallen angel destined for a life of servitude, Cristian Lucius is relegated to protecting earth from unwanted spirits. But he can’t accomplish this daunting task alone. He requires assistance from the very woman who frustrates him as much as she intrigues him. Cristian is determined to ignore his intense attraction for Ashley, and focus on his mission. If they don’t work together, they won’t have a chance in hell of defeating the demon threatening their lives. The problem is getting Ashley to trust him. No easy task, considering Cristian is the very man responsible for her father’s disappearance.
This book was fantastic. I love ghost stories and this one combined a ghost story with angels along with a lot of supernatural secondary creatures.
Cristian is one of Raphael’s warriors sentenced to Earth to pay penance by forcing ghosts to cross over to be judged instead of sticking around. Ashley is able to see and talk to ghosts because of this she had a hard childhood and early adult life. When she inherits her Aunt’s pub she has no idea what is waiting for her. All she knows is this may be her only chance to discover what happened to her father as the Pub was the last place he was before his disappearance. However there is something evil in the basement and it wants out. We later meet Devon who seems to be somewhat the same as Cristian but at the same time not so much. I really like Devon too so I am pleased to see he will be in the next book.
The author painted a vivid picture in this story not only with the scenery but also with the characters. The book moved along at a fast pace with plenty of action and romance thrown in. It kept me interested right up to the end and now I am left with wanting to read the second book right now!
I absolutely recommend reading this book and this series. I will definitely be continuing with this series and checking out more by this author. If her other books are like this one I will be checking out those also.
