"Angels, demons and a lost soul"
Keegan Black is dead, but finds himself still with the
living. To make matters worse, he discovers that demons are
after him, and they want to eat his heart and escort him to
Hell. He is saved from the first demon attack by Echo, one
of Heaven's heralds—essentially an angel—who is sent to the
human plane to protect Keegan.
As it turns out, Keegan's soul is missing, and it's Echo's

And in the middle of demon attacks and the search for

in love. But can anything come of a love between an
immortal herald and a mortal human?

I wished it was longer. I will be looking for more books by
