Messenger angel Sarah is focused, dedicated to the cause of heaven in the war against hell. For centuries she has watched other angels succumb to temptation and break the rules governing relationships between angels and humans. Sarah has vowed to never become one of the 'Fallen' angels, now demons cursed to wander the depths of hell for eternity. She knows that she is stronger than the others, incapable of emotional attachment and the feelings of love and desire that can be so dangerous to her kind.

Jackson Bennett is alone in the world, and he prefers it that way. The former Army sergeant has seen more death than any human ought to experience in one lifetime. Even his dreams are haunted by the faces of those who have lost their lives because of him. He feels lost, purposeless, until an encounter with an angel reveals the secret purpose that he was made for. Born of a superior race of humans, Jackson learns of a special assignment. Should he accept, he will become an important part of world that exists between heaven, hell, and earth. After all that he has been through, Jackson doesn't know if he's ready to take on such a heavy responsibility; what he does know is that he could lose himself in the eyes of Sarah, the intriguing angel assigned to him. She is the only person who seems to understand the darkness and pain that have enveloped his heart; she is the only person capable of driving them away.

In a battle between love or loneliness, divinity or damnation, Sarah's choice once seemed easy. What she finds is that the black and white lines that once defined her world are now impossibly blurred and gray. What she finds is that she may not be not quite as strong as she thought.

This is the second installment in the Angels Among Us Series. I am a big fan of Elise Marion. One of my favorite things about her writing is her use of description. It places the reader into her stories and keeps him/her involved. In tempted, we learn a lot about Heaven and Hell and how these realms affect Sara and Jackson's relationship. Instead of giving a synopsis of the story since that's available on the book product page, I'm going to be honest and reveal what about this story I love the most. My favorite part of this entire book is Jackson. I love the way that Elise describes him, and how she represents a soldier scarred by war. My father is a Vietnam Veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. It's an awful mix of survivor's guilt and night terrors that transform soldiers, making them detached and in need of escape from their own lives. Elise does an amazing job with this. I love when Sara touches Jackson for the first time on the street and she is struck by the darkness, the sadness, and the grief within him. The description is amazing. I felt his pain, and the author does an amazing job of showing the reader how this has affected Jackson's every day life and his relationships. That said, I think it's Jackson's tortured past that makes this romance so beautiful. Either that, or I just really have a thing for men with tormented hearts who need healing. LOL! LOVE it! I love the way this story made me "feel." I am really really looking forward to the next installment.
