At first glance, Black Wings by Christina Henry (ACE Fantasy) appears to be a standard issue fantasy romance involving a female hero who has the enviable problem of having way too many attractive men in her life, a tall, dark stranger with a secret and a few demons that are thrown in to spice things up. But if you’re looking for supernatural smut, you best look elsewhere. With tight prose and wit, Henry crafted a thrilling adventure that takes readers from the streets of Chicago to the courts of Hell and leaves them wanting more.

From official release/information:

Product Description: As an Agent of Death, Madeline Black is responsible for escorting the souls of the dearly departed to the afterlife. It's a 24/7 job with a lousy benefits package.

Maddy's position may come with magical powers and an impressive wingspan, but it doesn't pay the bills. And then there are her infuriating boss, tenant woes, and a cranky, popcorn-loving gargoyle to contend with.

Things start looking up, though, when tall, dark, and handsome Gabriel Angeloscuro agrees to rent the empty apartment in Maddy's building. It's probably just a coincidence that as soon as he moves in demons appear on the front lawn. But when an unholy monster is unleashed upon the streets of Chicago, Maddy discovers powers she never knew she possessed. Powers linked to a family legacy of tarnished halos. Powers that place her directly between the light of Heaven and the fires of Hell...
