Before the dawn of man they walked the Earth. In time they passed through the gateway where no man could follow, but the Fallen, those who have lost favor, are banished to Earth until they can redeem themselves? Throughout time man has seen them as gods, above themselves, but despite their powers, they are a warlike race and once more a battle has begun for power. Banished from his beloved Pearthen forever, Raphael can no longer bear his solitude. Desperation to end his loneliness drives him to search among humans for a life companion, a woman to bestow his child upon. Isabel isn't particularly thrilled to have the honors, especially when she discovers her hunk has wings and some very bad baggage. Rating: CARNAL.
