Cadeon Weode has a secret. Not so much a secret as a past, actually. The guilt will haunt him forever...save for the one thing he can do to atone for his sins. Of course, the one key to his success--a halfling by the name of Holly Ashwin--isn't all that she appears. It seems as if letting her go is going to be as difficult as righting the wrong he committed so many eons ago.
Of course, Holly herself is no enigma. Raised as a human, she has no idea what is to come, until a demon comes to guard her as if she were his own personal pet. What transpires after is a long, deep tale of redemption, desire, and betrayal. Who will come out on top? Well, that's anyone's guess.

"Another one in the same vein from Kresley Cole. Cade Woede knows who his fated female is, but it also turns out she's the Vessel and he has to give her up in order to right the wrong he did his brother 9 centuries before. He lies to her and takes her to the sorcerer who's going to trade a sword that can kill the usurper to Rydstrom's throne in exchange for her. Demon meets girl, girl overcomes inner hand-ups to trust demon, demon betrays girl, girl forgives demon because she sees he had no choice. Getting pretty formulaic at this point, but they're still fun to read and fast moving."
