Authors: Elizabeth Chandler
“My love for you will never die.”
A love that spans eternity.
For Ivy, miracles are real. After all, it was a miracle this summer when she survived a near fatal car crash. And it was a miracle that Tristan, her boyfriend who died a year ago, returned to Earth as an angel. But Ivy knows better than anyone that miracles come at a price.
Even though Tristan has come back to Ivy, life is far from perfect. He’s a fallen angel—and he’s trapped in the body of a wanted murderer. With Tristan on the run from the police, Ivy’s not sure she’ll ever get her happy ending.
But when it becomes clear that Ivy’s worst enemy, the demon Gregory, is back to taunt her, it’s not just Tristan’s life that’s in danger. And Gregory is hell-bent on getting what he wants: her.
Will Ivy and Tristan ever be safe to be together? Or has Ivy run out of miracles?

For Françoise Bui—
Here’s to lunches in Macmillan’s cafeteria,
the many books that have passed through our hands
since then, and a treasured friendship.
GREGORY WAS CERTAIN NOW: IVY KNEW ABOUT HIM.
She had finally realized he was inside Beth’s mind. His pleasure doubled. After all, what satisfaction was there in hurting Ivy if she didn’t know
was doing it?
Vengeance is mine.
Each day he was growing stronger and more skillful. From the moment he began prowling Beth’s mind, she had fought him, but he was wearing her down. Beth would soon obey him, body and soul. Let Ivy call to Tristan for help—Angel Tristan was gone. And the ever-loyal Will had turned against her.
