“Angels aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with each other. But for the record, you were worth it.”
Grace Tate is a Protection Angel and Vampire Hunter, and she has always followed the rules. But some rules are made to be broken…
Until now the fight against evil has been simple, and falling in love was never part of the plan. So what happens when it’s beyond Grace’s control, and when she least expects it she falls for the wrong person?
All hell breaks loose, that’s what.
At Hopetown Valley High, not everything is as it seems, and the one person Grace thought was her enemy becomes her most important ally.
Blood will be shed, lives will be lost and friendships will be tested. It all comes down to one decision, and when Grace tries to save all those dear to her, she realises not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.
K. A. Last was born in Subiaco, Western Australia, and moved to Sydney with her parents and older brother when she was eight. Artistic and creative by nature, she studied Graphic Design and graduated with an Advanced Diploma. After marrying her high school sweetheart, she concentrated on her career before settling into family life. Blessed with a vivid imagination, she began writing to let off creative steam, and fell in love with it. She now resides in a peaceful leafy suburb north of Sydney with her husband, their two children, and a rabbit named Twitch.

Chapter Fifteen – Josh’s POV
“Do you have any weird memories from last night?” Grace asked.
I’m sure my face reflected many emotions, confusion probably the highest on the list. Why was she asking me about last night? Grace was going to think I was a nut job if I told her what I’d seen. I wasn’t sure if I should continue, but for some reason I trusted her.
“I did see something, but you’ll think I’m crazy.”
“Try me,” she said.
I took a breath, what did I have to lose? She’d either, laugh and say nice knowing you, or she’d listen.
“Bright lights making people in the cemetery. I can’t explain it any other way. There were these balls of light, and then people appeared. And there was a guy with dark creepy eyes. Then I blacked out.”
Grace closed her eyes and rubbed her temples with her fingertips. I rose from my chair and moved into the one next to her. Then I gently pulled her hands from her face, entwining my fingers into hers. The warmth from her touch flowed through me and I felt connected to her, like we were one person. Grace turned in her seat, pulling herself closer to me.
“I’m not supposed to be with you,” she said. “I’m different. I have a secret.”
“We all have secrets, Grace.”
“It’s not the same. You’re the one who’s going to think I’m crazy,” she said, on the verge of tears.
“Try me,” I chuckled.
“What you saw last night was me and Archer orbing to the cemetery.”
“Travelling by balls of light,” she said.
“You materialised in a ball of light? Like something from the Twilight Zone?”
“But not quite as scary.”
“I’m not really quite sure what to do with that.”
I tried to continue talking but I didn’t know what to say. My mind knew what it had seen, Grace’s confirmation just made it that much harder to grasp.
“I can hear and see things, too,” she continued. Her hands started trembling and tears spilled down her cheeks. “The eyes are the windows to your soul, Josh.”
“And what do my eyes tell you?” I asked, reaching up to wipe a tear away. Grace stared at me, her eyes glistened and her skin glowed.
“That you think you’re in love with me,” she said softly. “And not just in a school boy crush kind of way. Deep inside you believe with all your heart that I’m the one. Scared yet?”
“How could someone as beautiful as you be scary?”
“There’s a whole lot more to it. Can we get out of here?” Grace gently pulled me up and took me to the back corner of the classroom. “Do you trust me?” she asked with fresh tears in her eyes.
“Too late to turn back now.”
“Hold on then,” she whispered as she folded herself into my arms. Grace began to emanate light from her body, it swirled outwards and around us until we were bound together, and then in a flash we were gone.
For a moment I was completely disorientated and I thought I was going to be sick. The next thing I knew there was rock beneath my feet. We landed softly on the outcrop at the end of the path. Grace gently pulled away and I loosened my hold on her. What just happened was amazing, and although I’d never felt more alive than I did at that moment, it took all my strength not to vomit on her feet. Grace wouldn’t look at me so I tenderly raised her chin with my hand, and I saw all her apprehension dissolve instantly. She was still lightly glowing and looked beautiful.
“How do you do that?” I asked, gently stroking her upturned face.
“It’s one of my many talents,” she replied with a giggle. “I have a lot to share with you, but only if you won’t freak out on me.”
“Oh, I’m freaking out. But so far you haven’t tried to kill me so, I figure it’s all good.”
