In Rapture, J.R. Ward brings back her character Matthias, who is a most unlikable sort, but somehow, the author has taught us the realization that redemption is possible for anyone and so we will allow him another chance. Then we are left to compare Mel and Matthias, who are both essentially lost souls searching for redemption, and we find that they are experiencing different levels of a similar struggle. In the story, Mel's character is involved in an accident that leaves the victim with some memory loss but the one thing he does remember is a headstone, and a name.
You will be left wondering why Mel would continue her relationship with a confused and oh-so attractive man once he starts going on about "fallen angels". Instead she is drawn to the task of trying to help him find his redemption and complete his mission to save lost souls. As she and her new found love reconcile the return of his memory and try to solve the mystery of the name Jim Heron, they find themselves immersed in a war between angels and demons.

Out of the wickedly inventive imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling
author J. R. Ward comes a world where sin and salvation collide in a battle for
the future of mankind—where a cynical fallen angel struggles against the seven
deadly sins and a demon’s lure over seven chosen souls.
Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the
shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local
cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes
to solve, but she soon discovers they’re in over their heads with his past.
Over their heads with passion, too…
As shadows walk the
line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come
back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially
when you’re trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons. With a
soul on the line, and Mels’ heart at risk, what in heaven—or hell—will it take
to save them both?
