Heaven-Sent Warrior, by Nancy Lee Badger


Henrí Chevalier’s last memory, before stumbling naked into a museum’s moonlit garden, was Auguste Rodin and his dusty Paris studio in 1886. To escape his broken heart, Henrí volunteered to sleep inside a statue until needed. Expecting to die, he discovers he must learn to use the unexpected powers Heaven has given him. Plus, he must try to recall Rodin’s words, or fail his mission against otherworldly creatures, such as demons and faeries.

Kenzie Mackintosh, a dedicated art museum’s curator, spies a naked man hiding among bronze statues. A quick glance ignites desire within her, but she is too tied-up in work to act on it. Unaware of her fae heritage, her relationship with Henrí heats up as he crosses her path, and disrupts her job. While Henrí tries to process modern buildings, cars, and a pesky elevator, a demon escapes the underworld, and attacks. Danger forces Henrí and Kenzie to enlist the aid of her powerful fae relatives, even though Kenzie does not believe Henrí’s strange words and dire warnings. When the demon possesses the body of her ex-lover, and threatens to take her next, to use her to take over the world, Henrí and Kenzie must learn to trust each other. When the horrific take over happens, her death might be the only answer to the world’s salvation.
