Blurb: Madigan has a successful career as co-owner of a bakery and has never really been passionate about much else. His mother has always claimed that he was the son of the Archangel Raphael, but he’d never had reason to believe her. That is, until Madigan finds himself hunted by angelic fanatics who see him as an abomination.
His father has assigned him guardian angels to act as his protection from the hunters. The five men desperately search for a solution for Madigan’s protection and find only one viable option. Madigan must become Angel Bound, married in angelic terms, to all of his guardian angels. Now Madigan has gone from having no relationships to having five simultaneously. All of the men will have to learn to balance desire and duty in order to ensure Madigan’s safety and happiness above all things.

Review: Madigan is chucked in the deep end the night of his birthday. His mother always said his father was the Archangel Raphael, but he never believed her. But, now faced with a group of angels who want to kill him, he has no choice. Now with five angels to protect him, they have to find a way to keep him alive long enough to come fully into his powers.
Okay. Wow. Jana Downs has blown this story out of the water. Madigan has just celebrated his twenty-eighth birthday and is attacked. He discovers, in short order, his father really is the Archangel Raphael and he is a Nephilim and now he is in grave danger. Cross, Michel, Bren, Dex and Yuri are the angels assigned to keep him safe and to find a long-term solution and boy does Yuri find a solution ;-). As we progress with the book, we discover a bit about each of the characters and we have more to come in future books :-).
The idea for this book is quite unique; an Nephilim being assigned 5 Guardian angels to protect him from the Angels who go after all Nephilim, but ending up having to bond with all 5 angels as a way to survive. Madigan having to try to work his way through the shock of who his father is, that he is half angel, that angels are trying to kill him and that he has to bond with 5 angels to survive and it is not all sweetness and light between them all.
Each character is different from the last and they all have great personalities… for them. Seeing the dynamics as they try to establish a relationship is interesting and seeing them trying to find where they fit, not just with Madigan but with each other is great and you can tell that there will be even more clashes in the future for all these men. Now watch your heart rate as you approach the sex scenes because it really is scorching hot and quite explicit and scorching hot (I know I said it twice but it bears repeating.)
So if you want hot angels, hot sex, a good storyline, a bit of conflict, frustration, growly men, scorching hot sex and a happy ending (for now anyway) then you have to give this a shot. P.S. Can’t wait for the next installment, there’s a teaser on Ms. Downs website.
