Overview


Someone—or something—is stalking Abby Marcheson. Luckily, she has her brother's hunky friend Seth to keep her safe. Abby falls easily into her protected life, with Seth constantly by her side, and when he asks her out on a date, she's eager to accept.

But Seth is much more than he seems. A Nephilim, a son of Angels with wings of his own, Seth is bound to spend his life hunting the Shemyaza, evil descendants of Angels. He's kept his wings hidden from Abby in order not to frighten her, but as her stalker becomes bolder, Seth begins to suspect that a Shem has Abby in its sights…

As their flirtation escalates into full-blown passion, Seth is torn. Should he reveal his true nature to the beautiful, trusting Abby? Will she accept him, wings and all, or will Abby flee her guardian angel and fall prey to the sinister force that wishes her harm?

Library Journal
The newest series by author Bell introduces the world of the Nephilim and Shemyaza, two warring factions of angel-born who live among us with everyday jobs, fighting one another on their off-time. Angel-born Seth has been assigned to guard Abby, the younger sister of a mortal childhood friend, as she is being stalked, possibly by a Shemyaza. Abby soon falls for her protector as he falls for her. Now Seth must push to find the truth about Abby's previous breakup and decide whether she should know his true self and the facts behind her stalking. VERDICT The depths of the plot and character development here provide the perfect setup for what should prove to be a strong series.

Read an Excerpt


Seth wiped the blood off his blade with a charred piece of the Shemyaza's shirt. The wind ruffled his wings, sending a chill down his spine. That sensation never failed to amaze him, considering his wings were made of power and light. "Is that it? Are there any more of them?"

The Shem were angel-born who had given themselves over to their baser desires, becoming demonic in both appearance and temperament. Like the Nephilim, they had the ability to appear as human as Seth normally did. It was the job of the Nephilim to hunt them down, to keep humanity safe from their depravities. They almost always hunted alone, unable or unwilling to share hunting grounds with one another.

Unfortunately, from time to time Shem had been known to gang up on some poor soul, especially if they knew Nephilim like Seth were in the area.

Damien lifted his face to the wind and closed his dark blue eyes. Light cascaded over his body in rippling, iridescent waves, highlighting his black hair. He opened his eyes, his expression serene, the light fading away to nothing. It always awed Seth to watch him work, that beautiful light show that marked his friend as a Malachi, one of the rarest of the Nephilim. One of his gifts was the ability to sense angel-born within a few miles of his location, a serious advantage when they were hunting. "I think so. I can't sense anything for miles."

Seth put his blade in its specially designed over-the-shoulder sheath. The short sword and sheath would be mostly hidden by his T-shirt, completely hidden if he wore a trench coat. "Dante? You can put him out now."

"Aw, Dad. You never let me have any fun." The vicious grin on Dante's face was lit by the burning Shem at his feet. Dante waved a hand and the fire went blue-hot, burning the figure to ash before going out completely. Even the ashes would be cold within seconds. "Speaking of fun, any idea when Piotr will get back into town?"

Of all the Nephilim, Seth was the closest to Piotr, so it made sense that Dante would ask him. They shared a history none of the others would ever understand. He was Piotr's brother in all but blood, more so than with any of them. "Last I heard, he was in Moscow."

Damien holstered the gun he'd brought to the fight, hiding it under his trench coat. He had all the necessary concealed-carry permits, something Dante had insisted on for all the Neph who chose to use firearms. "Why is he in Moscow? Isn't that where the Shemyaza leader is hiding out?"

Seth grinned. He wasn't touching that one with a ten-foot pole. "Have you ever done one of those random-name-generator things?"

"Oh, here we go," Dante muttered, dusting Shem ash off his jacket and out of his dirty-blond hair.

Seth was glad he didn't have Dante's powers. As a Seris, Dante's power over fire was frightening, but it came with an equally fiery temperament that often got the detective in trouble with his chief.

"We should do one of those and see what our Mafia names should be."

Dante never took the bait, but Damien—

"Our Mafia names?" Damien made a face as he stepped around the ashy remains of the Shem.

"Yup. You could be Damien the Douche."

Damien bopped Seth on the back of the head.

"Seriously. We could call Dante—"

Dante bopped Seth on the back of the head, staggering him. Damn, the bastard's strong. He forgot sometimes how strong, because Dante would never really hurt one of his Nephilim brothers. "Va all´inferno, stronzo."

Damien's grin was pure evil. "Would you like a translation? I'd be more than happy to give it to you."

    Great Read!

    I loved this book. The story kept me engaged from the fist page and once I started, I couldn't put it down. I loved the love story and I wanted a hybrid angel myself. However, I only gave this book four stars because sometimes I felt I was missing something. It just didn't feel like the first book in a series. I even when back to Barnes and Noble to see if there was a book prior to this one or a pre-sequel. There's not, but it looks like there is going to be more books in this series, which I'll be the first in line to buy!

    i just finished this book and was very pleased with it. I enjoy

    i just finished this book and was very pleased with it. I enjoyed the fun romance of it and the thought that all women want to have a guardian angel come and sweep you off you're feet. I can't wait for the next book. I also am very ready for The Hob to come out. that is an awesome series.

    Someone is stalking Abby Marcheson and her brother¿s friend Seth

    Someone is stalking Abby Marcheson and her brother’s friend Seth has been asked to keep her safe. Now Seth is not a policeman, he is an architect with some unique skills that he can’t tell Abby about. Hopefully Seth asn his ‘speaialo brothers’ will be able to keep Abby safe from the evil that lurks in the shadows…

    While All For You is an interesting book it kind of felt like the author was mixing a Paranormal Romance with a Contemporary Romance. At times the blending of the two just didn’t work very well for me. There were too many times that the dialog was just cheesy and some of the plot felt like stories I had already read before. Abby was just a little too ok when Seth finally told her what he was.

    The entire book was just ok. I hope the next one in this series will be less cheesy and a little more believable.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Carina Press and Netgalley.)
    Seth is a nephilim - a descendent of angels, and has his very own wings. Seth's job is to protect humans from the Shem - evil descendents of angels.

    Living across the road from Seth is Abby, his friend Bill's little sister, and Seth has promised to look out for her.

    When Abby's ex-boyfriend Doug (who tried to kill her) is found to have escaped from prison, and Abbey's house is broken into, Seth takes his duties protecting Abby even more seriously, and he takes her to stay with his parents.

    Seth and Abby's feelings are not purely platonic though, and their developing relationship is causing Doug to esculate his attacks on Abby.

    Can Seth keep Abby safe? Can Doug be stopped before it's too late? And what will Abby say when she realises that Seth is not 100% human?


    This book really didn't do it for me. I thought that the blurb sounded really interesting, but the actual book was just a bit of a let-down.
    The writing just felt awkward to me, and while this usually abates as the story gets going, this time it just didn't, and continued to feel awkward all the way through.
    The sex scenes were okay, but again, felt awkward, and instead of enjoying the intimate moments I found myself cringing.

    The actual stuff about the nephilim and Shem wasn't all that interesting - it felt like a school history lesson or something, and when Seth thought that the Shem might be after Abby, he admitted that he had absolutely no idea why, which kind of made the suspicion a bit unfounded.

    The characters themselves were all okay, but I didn't fall in love with them, and I felt like I was having to force myself to keep reading to the end.
    I had hoped that the romance parts of the book would make up for the poor storyline otherwise, but unfortunately that didn't happen, and I didn't really like the romance parts of the book either.

    I sure some people would enjoy this but it really wasn't for me. Maybe if you just wanted to read the sex scenes without the storyline it wouldn't be as bad, but I couldn't recommend this as a good paranormal romance.
    Overall; awkward and uninspiring.
    5 out of 10.

    Love Nephilim Characters

    I liked all the Nephilim characters, each was funny. Though it was hard to root for Abby since she was a liar, and an idiot who basically played Russian roulette with life, even after she knew Seth could protect her. I actually hoped the Shem would kill Abby, for her sheer stupidity. I have read a number of books with Nephilim. While I enjoyed the book, Abby does not deserve live.
