For more than a thousand years Samuella Dís has been a fairy godmother. The fairy title is ironic, since she’s a dís—an ancient society of all-female, winged, immortal avengers who paint their toenails with reckless abandon and have difficulties with real swearwords. However, something’s wrong with Sam’s latest assignment. Her newest orphan is a six-foot-three soldier, who’s indubitably handsome, and a flausching man. Not a boy at all, but a flinging flanging man!
Luke Anderson is home barely a week when he loses his parents in a drunk driving accident. Already plagued by nightmares from his tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, he’s not sure how much more he can take. And maybe he’s gone a bit crazy because he can’t keep his eyes off one spunky strawberry blonde at his parents’ funeral—inappropriate, right? But she offers so much comfort in those huge amber eyes of hers, and, hey, it’s not like the world would end if he hit on the woman.
Since the dís are a dwindling species, The Norns, Sam’s bosses, are trying to matchmake Sam and Luke. Only, the last time they played cupids England almost collapsed. Plus, there’s the issue of human men going insane once they’ve had sex with a dís. And Sam could die from a broken heart. Oh, and there’s the little matter of when a dís gets upset she can cause apocalyptic events. But it might be worth it for love. Then again, the Norns have been stalking Oprah lately, and there’s no guessing if they’re merely insane or certifiably brilliant.

This is the start of a new series with some of the :type” of characters that I’ve grown to love about Ms. Jameson’s series. It took me a bit to like the Disir (you’ll know them when you read the book) but I believe it is because this story lays the foundation for the rest of the series. I loved the “love story” in the book – don’t want to say much more as it really would be considered spoilers – and the group of Veterans will tug at your heart. I’m hoping that the next book in the series won’t have to go into as much background detail, as that has already been accomplished in book 1, but all the historical information of the Disir is important to know. How else can you enjoy the story, right? I will say that the depth of the main characters feelings and insecurities and their very being will suck you in and make you want to read until you are done. Great start to a new series!
I loved reading this book. Red L. Jameson has created a world that is exciting and fills your mind with new possibilities. As she weaves her story of friendship, romance, and heroic deeds it's hard not to fall in love with the characters. At every turn there is a new twist and a little humor thrown in for good measure. If your looking for a book that will sweep you away and pull at your heart strings, this one will keep you up reading late into the night. This is the authors first book in this series and I can't wait for the next one!.
