The Lightbringer : Theodora Morgan knows she's a little strange. Her talent for healing has set her apart, marked her as different all her life--a life spent moving from town to town when too much notice is taken of her abilities. Unfortunately, her talent for healing has brought her to the attention of the Crusade--and the Dark. The Crusade wants her dead because she's psychic, the Dark wants to feed on her talent--and then there's Dante. Tall and grim and armed with black-bladed knives, guns and a sword, he says he's here to protect her. But what if Theo needs protection from him? The Watcher: Dante is a Watcher, sworn by Circle Lightfall to protect the Lightbringers. His next assignment? Watch over Theo. She doesn't know she's a Lightbringer, she doesn't know she's surrounded by enemies--and she doesn't know she's been marked for death by a bunch of fanatics. Perfect. He can't protect her if she doesn't trust him, but how can she possibly trust a man scarred by murder and warfare--a man who smells like the same Darkness Theo has been running from all her life?

I am definitely in the minority in loving this book, and I admit that I am biased. I love Lilith Saintcrow!
