Anthropology PhD candidate Lexi Harrison never bares it all when she belly dances for a strip club crowd. She doesn’t have to—she’s that good. Every performance earns money toward her degree, and restores the sense of power that her painful childhood ripped away.
Something is different about tonight. A man whose silver gaze seems to touch her skin beneath her veils. When a rowdy customer crosses the line, he comes to her rescue with the speed of a falcon—complete with wings.
Mikos Tyomni has never seen anyone dance the raqs sharqi like Lexi. Trust his tormentor, Archangel Michael, to put him in close contact with the cause of his downfall: a mortal woman. Particularly this mortal woman. The Defender. He has only thirty days to win her trust before Hell’s deadliest demons attempt the mother of all prison breaks.
No matter how sexy the messenger is, Lexi’s career plans don’t include some crazy idea that she’s the last line of defense against the forces of evil. Until her university mentor’s murder leaves her holding the key to Hell. And fighting a losing battle against a passion with the unholy power to bring down Heaven…
Lexi has everything all planned out. Working hard to obtain her college degree by day and belly dancing by night, Lexi is determined to stay on the path she wants. With her heart locked up tight, nothing will make her feel again. Through a series of unfortunate events during her childhood, including the loss of her parents, Lexi has lost all faith in herself and humanity as a whole.
Mikos is an angel with a past. After falling from grace, he has worked non-stop to get back in the good graces of the powers that be. Just one task remains for him to complete and then his desire to return to heaven will be granted. What should be an easy task, makes a turn for the worst when he must convince Lexi that she is the Defender; a heritage that has been bestowed upon her by her deceased parents. Not only is Lexi head strong, stubborn and unwilling to bend, but she has an irresistible pull that Mikos can not ignore. Allowing himself to be with Lexi is not only forbidden but will ruin everything he has worked so hard to obtain.
In the majority of books that I have read that focus on the battle between good and evil…there are only angels against demons. God versus Satan. Ms. Knight takes the path least traveled and adds various aspects from Pagan spiritual paths and Mythology into the pages of Relic Defender: Key of Solomon. It was so refreshing to read about various aspects of other spiritual paths rather than focusing solely on main-stream religions.
If you like books that contain steamy angels and sexual tension that radiates off of the pages…I highly recommend Relic Defender: Key of Solomon by Cassiel Knight!
