One demon prince may be festering in the bowels of hell, but Genevieve’s troubles are far from over. Prince Bamal, demon lord of New York City, still wants her. But this time, he wants her alive. All signs point to the lost prophecy and his desire for her inherent power as a Vessel of Light.
While Jude Delacroix spends his days and nights searching for the prophecy, another protector steps in to take his place. Thomas, a guardian angel, claims Genevieve is his to protect if the demon hunter does not. As threats against her life escalate, he offers her the power to sift. Knowing the transfer of power comes through a kiss, she hesitates. While Gen’s love for Jude is true, Thomas stirs a desire where there should be none. Thomas also knows Jude’s darkest secret and plans to use it, if necessary, to win Genevieve for his own.

Sealed in Sin by Juliette Cross (The Vessel Trilogy, #2)
With one demon prince down and out of the picture, Genevieve must now deal with Prince Bamal. Bigger, badder and more powerful than Dante, the demon lord of New York City wants Genevieve, her powers as the Vessel of Light and to defeat the prophecy she is part of, controlling her with his darkness.
While Jude has gone off in search of the missing prophecy, Gen will come face to face with her guardian angel, a being who has watched over her, her entire life. But is Thomas looking for more from Genevieve than she can give? Is he as pure as one would think a guardian angel would be? He can give Gen more power, but at what true price? What is Thomas stirring within Genevieve’s heart and soul? Are his intentions pure or are they SEALED IN SIN?
Juliette Cross will sift us through London, New Orleans, Paris and even to Scotland where a private hideaway could become the only haven Gen and Jude may find. This time out emotions are at the boiling point across the board as hearts are laid bare, doubts and insecurities creep in and every minute brings darkness just a little closer to becoming the reality of the world.
Time for Gen to believe fully in herself and those around her, but will she choose to trust in the wrong people? Perhaps it is better to go with her heart, her soul and her gut because they may need to be her closest allies when the unthinkable happens.
Do you ever wonder what an author is thinking as they begin piling more and more on their heroine? Pretty sure Juliette Cross was testing someone’s limits, not sure if it was Genevieve’s or mine! Talk about gut-clenching chaos and yet, I have faith that Gen will survive! As for me, it was close, I had the grip of death on my Kindle, but I made through, dangling by clenched fingers!
I absolutely love this series, these characters and Juliette Cross’ style, it’s like she “gets” what I want to read!
