Book 2 in the Halflings Trilogy
The mission to safeguard Nikki Youngblood depends on the fragile alliance of two half-angel, half-human guardians, both struggling with intense feelings for the girl who has been assigned to their care. Mace, steadfast and deeply in love, wants to protect Nikki at all costs, while Raven's loyalty to Nikki finds him advocating for her independence and battling his own darker inclinations. At the same time, Nikki finds it harder and harder to choose between the two heavenly beings she may never have.
Dangers intensify and tensions between Mace and Raven flare as the purpose of their mission becomes clear. Can their defenses hold up to master manipulator Damon Vessler and the powerful secret he holds regarding Nikki's heritage? Can anyone protect Nikki from her true purpose and destiny?

In this much anticipated follow-up book to Halflings, Nikki's adventures take her and the Halflings across the globe. As they seek to win over evil and learn the plans of their foe, Mace and Raven vie for her attention. Will either one win her heart or will she choose no one? After over-hearing the Halflings speak about her and the problems she has brought them, she decides to return home to Damon Vessler and continue her martial arts training. Under his direction, she taps into her darker side and now lives for revenge. Is this what she is made for? Will the Halflings be able to convince her of her true calling?
Heather Burch has once again drawn the reader into the lives of Nikki and the Halflings. I found myself wanting to give Nikki advice and help as I read the book. I love it when the author has the uncanny ability to make me part of the storyline! I can't wait to read the final book of this terrific trilogy.
