Sometimes wrongs can be righted and the mistakes of a persons past forgiven.
And sometimes things can go very very wrong...
Gabe,the Harbinger of Death has been Earth-bound for almost two hundred years, his punishment for taking the life of another without cause. He's been trying to atone ever since by joining the Shadow Unit and befriending the last man he should. Now, with only two weeks left on his sentence he prepares to leave the team behind for good-but only after training his replacement.
When the enigmatic Kapua(Xee)Hale appears tempting his desires, Gabe temporarily forgoes business for a night of pleasure by working her out of his system.
But will one night be enough?
Tensions are high at Shadow Unit headquarters. Loyalties are tested and old debts are called in as the team embarks on a dangerous new mission that exposes Gabriel's dark past.
Gabe, the Harbinger of Death has served almost 200 years earthbound as punishment, and now he has met the enigmatic Xee, but he can’t have her because the team is about to embark on a dangerous mission that will expose Gabriel’s dark past in this mesmerizing paranormal romance.
There is never a dull moment in this fast paced and smooth flowing plot that keeps readers hovering in anticipation with lots of suspense, excitement and passion. Xee’s troubled past has caused her to cut herself off from people and her para ability doesn’t help matters. When she meets Gabe sparks fly in every direction erupting in snarky comments and lots of attitude and the reader can’t help but get caught up in not only the angry passion but the red hot desire that flows between these two as they both try to do their job while fighting their attraction.
Spine tingling tension builds throughout this story as fate throws the entire team into chaos, truths are revealed and dangerous events are set in motion most of which Gabe is in some way responsible for. I have to say that I was on the edge of my seat through most of the book and really I am not sure just who the good guys are because from what I am reading they all have some messed up lives and the so called elders and all their bull is just plain evil. A word of caution there is also a very disturbing and evil event that some elder angels need to be drawn quartered and kept alive in a frozen vat of acid for eternity for (sorry I am still venting over that one).
This series gets more complicated as time goes on and so do the characters, not to mention there better be some heavy duty happiness at the end of it because these characters are sure put through hell. That being said I was completely caught up in this story and couldn’t put the book down until I had read every last word, even if I was cussing out some of the characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

About Tigris Eden:
One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.
Years later she’d use them to express her happiness and her pain, through poetry. She took her real life situations and twisted them into something she could handle. Fantastical tales of love, life, death and cruelty. Now that her dream of writing is a reality she turns the voices in her head into stories of werewolves, vampires and other mythical made-up creatures and drops them into a world of her choosing.
All of her stories are figments of her imagination, mixed in with a healthy dose of real-life situations. Tigris’ famous lines are “It’s not me who’s interesting, it’s my crazy whacked out friends and family around me who are.”
Aspiring to be waited on hand and foot, Tigris spends her evenings and weekends in front of her computer, typing out the various stories that she’s either dreamed or witnessed.
An avid reader, Tigris enjoys an eclectic range of authors. Some of her favorite titles are Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse Five, Stephen Kings, The Stand, and Big Bad Wolf, A light in the Attic, Jane Eyre, The Color Purple, Oh the Places You Will Go, The Secret Garden, and Menefreya in The Morning. Just to name a few.
When she’s not writing Tigris marvel’s at life’s gifts. She likes to take pictures of beautiful things. She openly admits that what she may find beautiful another person might not, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She enjoys her music and doesn’t leave home without it. Long pillow conversations with LL about nonsensical things, and hanging out with her boys, when they deem her “cool enough.”
It can be said that life is never boring at her house. Something is always going on. Shouting matches at the tele, food fights at the table, and the occasional extremely loud singing.
Tigris writes the Shadow Unit Series, featuring hot immortal men who police their kind, and women who love them. She also co-writes the Romantic Tales: Bedtime stories, which have included, The Genesis Project, a Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance, featuring Genesis Blackmore, the last remaining human on New Earth. In Season 2 or Romantic Tales, Tigris has Red Hawk Mercenary group. This is also a Sci-Fi, but Erotic Romance featuring female assassins with very little moral codes.
Tigris is currently working on the Shadow Unit Series, Romantic Tales: Bedtimes Stories, and has expanded on the Genesis Project which will now be a trilogy introduced in 2014.
Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.
