Summary
 “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 realizes not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.
 

Summary
Sacrifice is a 23,000 word prequel to Fall For Me. It tells the story of Grace and Seth, and what happened in that castle. It is meant to be read after Fall For Me, although it can be read first...


Seth’s heart is breaking. He knows his decision will hurt the one person he keeps breathing for, but he can’t take it anymore. He can’t be near Grace knowing she will always be just out of reach.

Grace is oblivious to Seth’s turmoil. She loves him unconditionally, but not in the way he wants. They both know that in Heaven physical love is forbidden, and to break the rules is to defy everything they’ve ever been taught.

When Grace and Seth are sent on a mission to save a young mother and her unborn child, Grace must face the fact that Seth won’t be returning home. She doesn’t understand Seth’s decision and hates him for it. But what neither of them realize is how big a part that single decision will play in shaping their entire future.

Chapter One of Sacrifice from Seth’s POV

 
1642
 
Michael and I had been fighting for almost an hour. Cloud dust plumed into the air as my feet struck the floor. My patience with him was growing thin. He couldn’t say anything that would change my mind. As far as I was concerned he was wasting his time.
 
“You can’t do it,” Michael said. “You don’t know what you’re giving up.”
 
“I know perfectly well what I’m giving up,” I said through clenched teeth.
 
“But why, Seth? Why leave when you can be with her every day?”
 
“Because I can’t be with her, can I? It’s against the rules.”
 
“It has to be better than what you’re planning. Imagine if she knew.”
 
“She won’t find out until I’m gone,” I shouted. “No one will find out. And if you tell anyone I’ll—”
 
“What?” Michael folded his arms over his chest. “Kill me? Hit me? What, Seth? What could you possibly do to me? I’m an archangel. I’m your superior, and as your superior, I’m telling you not to do this. Actually, I’m ordering you not to do this. Don’t think you can get anything past the Council.”
 
Michael stared at me with heavenly wrath in his eyes. My shoulders heaved as I tried—unsuccessfully—to contain my anger. I lunged at Michael and hit him in the chest. He stumbled backwards then righted himself and unfurled his pearl-white wings to their full span. He came at me with a force ten times stronger than my own, and I landed heavily on my back in the cloud dust.
 
“Grow up. Stop thinking about yourself for once; think about what this will do to her. It will crush her.”
 
Michael pinned me to the floor. I struggled beneath him, but he held me firmly in place.
 
“Get. Off. Me,” I said.
 
Finally, he did as I’d asked. I sat up, ran a hand through my hair, and watched Michael walk away. He kicked at the cloud dust as he went. The mist floated before settling back into place.
 
“You don’t understand,” I said. “I have thought about this. I’ve thought about it until my head feels like it’s going to split open. I love her.”
 
Michael turned to face me. “Then why is being beside her not enough?”
 
“There’s no room up here for her and my heart. Because when I’m with her, I want to break every vow I’ve ever made. And I can’t ask her to do the same.”
 
“Then I guess we’ve got a problem.”
 
I got to my feet and squared my shoulders. “Yes, I guess we do.”
