Dark Defender
by Alexis Morgan

As a Paladin warrior, Blake Trahern fights and dies again and again to keep mankind safe from the Others. Sensing his humanity slipping away with eachbattle, he retreasts from the world . . . until the one person with a hold on his soul needs his help. It's been twelve years since Blake vanished from Brena Nichol's life, years that have turned her from a love-struck teen into a headstrong, sensual woman. He'll fearlessly give his life to protect her—yet he dare not risk his heart.

Brenna is stunned by Blake's reappearnace, and by a shocking discover about her father. Everything she has ever believed is thrown into question—everything except the desire that Blake still ignites. But as they search together for a traitor among the Paladins, danger looms: the next battle could tip Blake into madness, destroying his life, his soul . . . and the only woman he has ever loved.
