"Save her life or save mankind. His choice could cost him his soul. "
For nearly two centuries, Marcus has been the Watchers most faithful soldier. Sworn to protect humanity, driven by an unrelenting compulsion to atone for past sins, he has rarely found a compelling reason to question his mission, let alone defy his leader.
His partner, Regan, is his exact opposite, an enigma he longs to solve. A free spirit and reckless to a fault, Regan acts first and thinks later. Her smart mouth and tender heart have fascinated Marcus for decades, but the Watchers strict vow of celibacy has forced him to ignore the sizzling attraction between them. Until now.
When Regan goes rogue to protect a very special little boy, Marcus is forced to make an impossible choice commit an act of treason or watch the woman he secretly loves die.
Hunted by enemies and allies alike, Regan and Marcus run for their lives, fighting to thwart an age-old prophecy and guard a boy whose destiny may very well be to destroy the world or save it.
Warning: Contains violent battle scenes, angels with twisted agendas, nail-biting suspense, intense emotion, burning-hot sexual tension, and a sexy, stubborn hero who would rather face death than admit what s in his heart.
Soul Deep is the second book in the Dark Souls series by Anne Hope. I didn't realize we'd be getting a different perspective with each book, but I like it. this time around, we are primarily seeing things through Marcus and Regan's point of view, although it is told in 3rd person like book one. Also, like book one, we are given perspectives from other characters as well. I like getting the full scope of the characters and their motivations.I knew the other characters within this series, like Marcus and Regan, had some pretty good stories to tell, but I didn't realize how much they had going one. As Watchers, they are forbidden to have any romantic relationships. I still don't understand this, because even with this couple, they are so much more powerful together. They are a great team, which is why Cal put them together to begin with. There must be something Cal isn't telling us as to the real reason why he doesn't allow romance among his Watchers. So, it seems like we get rid of one enemy only to have another step right into his shoes. In the beginning of book one, I wondered if there was anything remotely redeeming and savable about him. No. He's bad through and through. The action scenes are amazing, and really keep you on the edge of your seat. This is a highly engaging series so far. I'm looking forward to reading more.

Anne Hope is the author of emotionally intense romances with a twist—a twist of humor, a twist of suspense, a twist of magic. All her stories, however, have a common thread. Whether they make you laugh or cry or push you to the edge of your seat, they all feature the redeeming power of love and the heart’s incredible ability to heal.
Anne’s passion for writing began at the age of eight. After penning countless stories about enchanted houses, alien girls with supernatural powers, and children constantly getting lost in the woods, she decided to try her hand at romance. She lives in Montreal, Canada with her husband, her two inexhaustible kids, her cat and a rambunctious Australian Kelpie. Check out a guest post by Anne Hope!
