The demon Samael has one assignment: bringing the souls of L.A.’s unquiet dead to the underworld. Some might call it a tough gig, but he can’t complain — while he’s “topside” here on Earth, he can live as a mortal man, an existence that includes physical interactions, as long as he doesn’t become emotionally involved with the women he meets.
Once Samael encounters Felicia McGovern, an artist struggling with her own earthbound problems, he soon realizes that his attraction to her goes far beyond the physical. But after Felicia unexpectedly discovers that he’s no normal mortal man, Samael must risk everything to save her life…even if it means losing her forever.
