Betrayed by the man he loved and stranded on Earth after losing his powers, Samuel is alone and broken. His black angel’s wings maimed and useless, he must go on living despite the searing pain in his heart. Unable to find peace on his own, but trying to restore it among the multitude of races composing the paranormal world, Samuel works at the Immortal Council headquarters in Rome as a liaison between species.
As the only fallen angel on Earth and despised by his former brethren, Samuel doesn’t belong anywhere. The only place where he feels at home is the gym owned by his friend Alexander Drako. Even though among the humans he must hide his true form and appear as a cripple, Samuel cherishes the hours spent in the old gymnasium, sparring away his troubles.
Martina’s life has been transformed from fairy tale to nightmare by her abusive and rich husband. A pro bono lawyer for women in need, she can’t seem to find a way to help herself. Afraid of Martina’s ex-husband’s powerful family, the authorities deny her justice and even her friends and family have deserted her. She is all alone in the world and solely dedicated to her job. Martina’s only break from her dreary reality is when she trains at Drako’s gym. One day, Drako asks her to spar with one of his friends, and she meets Samuel, a defenseless cripple who inspires Martina to protect him from the ugliness of the world.
A friendship blossoms between two broken souls. But fate doesn’t seem to smile on them. Coming from two different worlds, Samuel and Martina will soon have to fight both paranormals and humans for their right to be together.
