Twenty-eight-year-old Lilly Rains would settle for - no, embrace - the idea of Purgatory as atonement for her sins. The newly assigned parish priest has conjured less than righteous thoughts, forcing Lilly to question her sanity for being attracted to a man of the cloth and more importantly, whether she can perform her job as the principal of St. Robert’s Catholic School.
But the handsome and mysterious priest is not what he seems. He has been sent to retrieve Lilly’s wavering soul, preying on a faith that has been rattled by her past. But where there is darkness, there must also be light and God has decided it is time to intervene. A Guardian has been assigned to protect Lilly from the evil surrounding her. However, when the priest and the Guardian begin to pursue her for their own purposes, Lilly is left with an impossible decision.
Will she choose the forbidden man she loves or the Guardian who will be eternally devoted to her?
“You make me feel alive, Lily.
You make me feel everything.”
I love picking up books that have some sort of religious aspect to it. Not because I am super religious, because I am not – not even close. I just find them interesting, and they fall into the “outside the box” aspect that I enjoy when it comes to romance books.
This book by Elle is told from multiple POVs, I rather liked that she wrote it that way. Lily was a great character, I loved watching her wrestle with trying to do what was right but staying with what her heart wanted. There is lost of action, plenty of secrets and lies, and so much more. This book was not preachy, which is something that I want when it comes to these types of books. The battle between good vs evil is enough to make this a book that you want to finish, and possibly can’t put down.
I’m looking forward to checking out more from this author.
“She is pure and innocent, everything that I’m not.”
