Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

Neat freak lab tech, Lily Banner lives her life as any ordinary human. She’s dedicated to her work and loves to hang out with her friends at Dante’s Circle, their local bar. When she discovers a strange blue dust at work she meets a handsome stranger holding secrets – and maybe her heart. But after a close call with a thunderstorm, she may not be as ordinary as she thinks.

Shade Griffin is a warrior angel sent to Earth to protect the supernaturals’ secrets. One problem, he can’t stop leaving dust in odd places around town. Now he has to find every ounce of his dust and keep the presence of the supernatural a secret. But after a close encounter with a sexy lab tech and a lightning quick connection, his millennia old loyalties may shift and he could lose more than just his wings in the chaos.

Warning: Contains a sexy angel with a choice to make and a green-eyed lab tech who dreams of a dark-winged stranger. Oh yeah, and a shocking spark that’s sure to leave them begging for more.

Anna’s Review

I have to admit that paranormal romance is not usually my first choice, but there was something about this book that hooked me.   Was it the sexy angels?  Might have been....

The series is centered on a group of close friends who meet at a bar named Dante Circle and are soon introduced to the other universe around them.  The bar has a very sexy owner named Dante, and I definitely want to learn more about him, but I guess I have to wait a bit a longer for his story.

Ms. Ryan has developed an interesting world of mythical species that, unbeknownst to humans, inhabit the earth.  Lily is a lab tech put in charge of analyzing an interesting substance which happens to be the dust from Shade's Wings.  He can’t let the evidence of his existence remain in human hands so he seeks out Lily to retrieve his dust.  Shade of course doesn't expect to be overwhelming attracted to Lily.  Of course we expect it, because it is a romance after all!

Shade and Lily’s story is charming.  I really liked how Lily’s character changes inside and out and becomes a more confident woman.  I loved her girlfriends and how they provided her support whenever she needed it. 

The sex scenes were slightly spicy although I think the heat level could have been kicked up a notch, but that’s  just me.  This is a fun easy read that had me looking forward to the installment of Dante’s Circle
