When Ashley Hunter inherits the Inn where her father mysteriously vanished years ago, she jumps at the chance to finally uncover the truth about his disappearance. But soon after taking ownership of the decrepit building, Ashley realizes she’s in for far more than she bargained. Not only has she inherited answers to many sought-after questions, she’s also inherited spirits, demons and even fallen angels! Then Cristian arrives, a gorgeous man who insists he merely needs a room to rent. She believes him, until one by one her ghosts start disappearing... As a fallen angel destined for a life of servitude, Cristian Lucius is relegated to protecting earth from unwanted spirits. But he can’t accomplish this daunting task alone. He requires assistance from the very woman who frustrates him as much as she intrigues him. Cristian is determined to ignore his intense attraction for Ashley, and focus on his mission. If they don’t work together, they won’t have a chance in hell of defeating the demon threatening their lives. The problem is getting Ashley to trust him. No easy task, considering Cristian is the very man responsible for her father’s disappearance. (From Goodreads)
Cristian Lucius is an angel who is literally fighting to earn his way back into Heaven and he needs the help of a Seer. Ashley Hunter has just inherited her aunt's haunted pub. She can see ghosts and denies her powers. But she can't even attempt to deny she is attracted to Cristian.
I really enjoyed this book!
Cristian was wonderful and I liked Ashely's character (besides her constant denial of her powers and then how she gets angry when she finds out new info on ghosts and other strange things that are taking place within her pub. Her "why didn't you tell me" or "you knew all this time?" got old)
The romance/relationship grew over the course of the book, both struggled against their attraction to each other, which was a plus for me. It is nice to have a slow building romance sometimes.
This book was filled with supernatural creatures: ghosts, angels, demons, vampires, werewolves, leprechauns - Wow!
This book was so much fun and gives the reader a lot to look forward to.
