There's Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself....And Billi SanGreal.
As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilquis SanGreal grew up knowing she wasn't normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her time training as a soldier in her order's ancient battle against the Unholy.
Billi's cloistered life is blasted apart when her childhood friend, Kay, returns from Jerusalem, gorgeous and with a dangerous chip on his shoulder. He's ready to reclaim his place in Billi's life, but she's met someone new: amber-eyed Michael, who seems to understand her like no one else, effortlessly claiming a stake in her heart.
But the Templars are called to duty before Billi can enjoy the pleasant new twist to her life. One of the order's ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure that the Templars have protected for hundreds of years -- a cursed mirror powerful enough to kill all of London's firstborn. To save her city from catastrophe, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than any of the Templars could have imagined.
Steeped in history, action, and dilemma after dilemma, THE DEVIL'S KISS will have readers up all night, desperate to find out the ending. At 15, Billi SanGreal is the youngest Knights Templar warrior, and the only girl. Preparing for battle and training is all she has been doing for years, as much as she longs for a normal life. Little does Billi know that she is the key to an upcoming battle that could mean the end of the Knights for good. Torn between a desire for a life of boys, shopping, and fun, and her duties as a Knight, Billi finds herself caught between two very different boys, the threat of a horrible plague, and ancient enemies.
