After being inexplicably targeted by an evil intent on harming her at any cost, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the watchful guardianship of three mysterious young men who call themselves halflings. Sworn to defend her, misfits Mace, Raven, and Vine battle to keep Nikki safe while hiding their deepest secret—and the wings that come with.

A growing attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. While she risks a broken heart, Mace and Raven could lose everything, including their souls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but wanted more What do you do when you have have four hell hounds after you? You run like crazy and hope they stop. Not headstrong Nikki who stands her ground and tries to fight them off until three Halflings help her. Halflings are exactly what they sound like, the offspring of fallen angels and human women. Talk about complicated! They?re not allowed in heaven nor do they want to spend eternity in hell, so they opt to stay in the midplane. No other Halflings know this better than Mace, Will and Vine. Three young angels who are assigned to protect Nikki. The reason is unknown and throughout the novel they try to figure out why. I?m always one to read angel themed novels, and Halflings is no exception. It had a wonderful combination of mystery and romance that I had to know why Nikki is so special. And the little love triangle and unforgivable sin that Halflings must not do keeps the intensity of their love rising. This is a great quick read but it lacked answering all the questions that I had in te end. Maybe it will be answered in the next book? I look forward to it.

Editorial Reviews

'Packed with action, Halflings is stocked with a feisty, likable cast and a fantastically impossible love-triangle that made my heart flutter, race and sigh. This hard-to-put-down novel kept me up late into the night and burrowed itself into my imagination.' - Serena Chase, USA Today'From a fiery heroine to her otherworldly bodyguards, from conflicting desires to the terror of hell hounds---Halflings is a nonstop thrill ride through teeth-clenching dangers and the complexities of the human (and half-human) heart. Heather Burch is a top-notch storyteller, pure and simple.'Robert LiparuloAuthor of The 13th Tribe, Comes a Horseman, and the Dreamhouse Kings series -- Robert Liparulo, Author
