Praised by #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken as "Spellbinding & addicting!” the second installment in the erotic paranormal trilogy, The Watcher, by Kim Loraine continues the epic tale of Heaven vs. Hell with a sexy side of vampires.
Five years...that’s all I have left,then the Watcher will take control.But not before I use him to get what I want.
It seemed like a good plan at the time,until I found her. She's meant for me.Now I can't leave her. I won't go.
Sariel demands I hold up my end of our deal,Fight the Fallen. Win the war between Heaven and Hell.But she's the one I never thought I’d find,I can’t let Sariel take me from her.I need to make a choice--her or my soul?
*Disclaimer: This novel is the second part of a trilogy where each book is about a different character, but the story is continuous, therefore it is not a standalone. It also contains graphic, erotic scenes.

At the end of Waking the Watcher, Devin took on his Watcher and was given 5 years to live it up (vampire style) before he goes into the nothing and the Watcher takes over.   Unfortunately for both of them, they didn’t anticipate Willow, a vampire hunter to enter the scene and make things difficult.

Ms. Loraine started this trilogy as a short story based on Catholic dogma of the fight for heaven between the angels loyal  to God and the Fallen,  luckily for us the original characters Galen and Reese had a lot more to say. Then, also luckily, Devin decided his story needed to be written as well.  In Denying,  Ms. Loraine weaves a wonderfully rich  story of angels, Archangels, vampires and hunters and the fight to keep the Fallen contained. It is intriguing as Ms. Loraine reveals more of the workings of the angels and what they are capable of.  The plot thickens with active appearances of Lucifer and Azazel, the threat and danger increasing.

Devin is a little more surly this time around having found out the “catch” to having a working body for five years.  He is resigned to his time ending and is just biding his time.  Enter Willow, a mysterious woman who knows about vampires and actively fights them despite being human. She is smart, determined and completely blindsided by her attraction to Devin. The interaction between the two is engrossing and entertaining as fighting their bond becomes a push and pull of desire.

Devin’s Watcher, Sariel plays a integral part to the tumultuous relationship between Devin and Willow, both good and bad, while waiting for the final battle.  Ms. Loraine took the stoic, unfeeling Watcher and gives him growing emotions as well as throwing him for a major loop.  Add in small appearances by Galen and Reese that are both touching and shocking and you have an outstanding second part to this fantastic trilogy.
