Unaware of an age-old prophecy, secret societies, and an enemy she doesn’t know she has, Sophie Crenshaw thinks of herself as just being average. Along with her two best friends, Deva and Tabitha, Sophie sets off on what she thinks is a normal vacation. What she doesn't know is that everything she thought she knew about who she is, and what she can do, is about to change. Thrust in a world she knows nothing about, Sophie tries to find her true self, without losing her grip on her own sanity.

Henry Chang lives in world full of magic, where the stories over the legendary Angel’s Heart are spoken in whispered conversations, and midnight meetings. His job is to protect the Heart, keep it safe from anyone who wishes to hurt it or its Keeper. In a divine moment, he's tied to the Keeper’s heart forever. While trying to understand his own feelings, Henry does what he can to support Sophie, and keep her from falling apart.

With the help of Willow Crest members, who are sworn to protect her, without ever meeting her, Sophie will struggle to get control of her feeling and new found powers. Or will it be too much for her to handle? Will their growing love give Sophie the strength and courage to face the greatest challenge of her young life?

I received a free review copy of "Angel's Heart: the Keeper" in exchange for an honest review. The book has a creative story line and plot, and the Willow Creek society could yield a number of stories in addition to this one.  Several romances bloom, and the main characters, Sophie and Henry, lend a decidedly new adult quality to the story. 

The sparse sexual tension was disappointing, and Sophie, the heroine, cried and complained like a disgruntled child through over half the story. I found it difficult to like Sophie, but Henry, charming and loving, and the Willow Creek Society cast with their special abilities, helped redeem the story. I would have liked to see more tension and an emotionally mature heroine since the book is not categorized as YA or New Adult, but believe most paranormal romance readers will enjoy the action/fight scenes, the hero, and the unique Willow Creek Society characters. Three satin pillows.
