Joe Black meets Nora Roberts in this paranormal novel featuring a woman who can cheat death and the Reaper who’s charged with ensuring her mortality.
All Roxanne Love has ever wanted is to be normal—marriage, kids, the life of June Cleaver. Because she isn’t normal. In fact, she’s not even human…not entirely. The average woman can’t rise from the dead. When a violent robbery at her family-owned bistro leaves her and her twin brother, Reece, cheating death again, the two suddenly become persons of interest to the media—and a Reaper whose grasp they have evaded one too many times. But when her brother betrays her, Roxanne has no choice but to seek Reece out and put an end to those threatening her life.
Clothed in the skin of a guilt-ridden cop named Santo Castillo, the Reaper’s plan is simple: get close to Roxanne, uncover the secret of the twins mortality, and cut it at the source. But for Roxanne, this cop knows too much about the dark world she barely escaped—too much about reapers, too much about her—for her to trust him. The heart doesn’t listen to reason, though, and she finds herself drawn to his quiet strength and heart-stopping passion. As destiny takes her back to face her worst nightmare, she realizes the journey may bring her the love she’s always craved. But love and death make dangerous bed partners and Roxanne’s enemies are determined to see her die for the fifth and final time.
