The last time the Elementals were defeated in a Challenge, the result was World War II—a price humans paid in rivers of blood. Griffin is determined not to let that happen again. He doesn’t need a minor goddess getting in his way—no matter how much the redhead tempts him.
Clea intends to invoke a debt of honor to gain Griffin’s protection, but she has an ulterior motive: to get within striking distance of Griffin’s opponent, who she is certain killed her brother.
She never expected to feel a spark with Griffin, disturbingly seductive as he is. In a world where everyone looks like a god or goddess, why should this one winged Elemental call to her?
Yet their attraction grows fiercer as they journey to Iceland, Luxembourg, and finally Portugal to face Griffin’s foe. But even if they prevail, Griffin is holding onto one last, deadly secret that proves the truth can survive any Challenge, but love may be its final victim.

Endangered by her stepfather, minor goddess Clea is directed to seek refuge with Air Elemental, Griffin, in his Iceland lair. She intrigues him - as well as gets in his way, or so he thinks. Scenes are set in Iceland, Ireland, Rome, Portugal, so if you like travel (I do!), you'll enjoy that part. Although it's set in the same paranormal world as the first in this series, this works well as a stand-alone. Disclaimer: I am personally acquainted with the author. I loved the various ways Clea and Griffin are forced to come together (is that a pun? could be a pun) to solve the Challenge facing him. And I loved the Demonos they faced with his basket. Fast paced and exciting, I've already pre-ordered the last in this series. Recommend.
