He was an artist. She was his muse.
To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.
To twelve year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.
Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't.
Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.
Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.
But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.
*This is NOT a paranormal or a priest romance*
Young Evie Hart doesn’t care about being a princess in the little town of Prophetsville, Iowa. She only cares about hiding away in her tree house and create stories where people live happily ever after.
Until a new boy comes to town…
To her, Able is not the monster that everyone says that he is. He’s as bright and warm as the sun. Some people wait their whole life to find their soul mate but Evie found hers when she was just twelve years old.
“Don’t you know?”
Abel Adams wasn’t supposed to be born. His parents were outcasts who dared to love each other when it was strictly forbidden. He’s paid for sins that he’s never even committed and he endured them all because of Evie.
She always saw light when all others only saw shame. The older that they become, the spark between them grows into an uncontrollable inferno that threatens to burn everything to the ground.
Rather than be separated, they take flight for the bright lights of New York City. Now they are finally free to love each other openly and to build the life that dreamed of on all of those sultry summer days in Evie’s treehouse.
But the pain of the past still blazes through their veins and instead of finding redemption – they tumble straight into a void that has the power to tear them apart forever.
“Open your eyes,” Abel breathes. “Look at us.” When my eyes find his in the mirror, he tells me, “That’s our love. It’s so huge, so big you can’t contain it. It’s all-consuming. It fucking hurts to love this much but you want that hurt to crawl in. Because the love feels so good. You and me, we’ve got no choice but to ache, Pixie.”
Gods & Monsters isn’t just another romance. It’s a stunning modern tragedy that starts as a quiet hum and ends in a cacophony of sound that both shatters your heart and raises you up.
Saffron A. Kent continues to be a contemporary vanguard of romance with a one-of-a-kind writing style that that you will feel in the marrow of your bones. And it’s an experience that is as compelling as it is addictive…

About The Author ~
Writer of bad romances. Aspiring Lana Del Rey of the Book World.
Saffron is a big believer in love (obviously). She believes in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But she also believes in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. She believes in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.
The kind of love she writes about is flawed just like her characters. And she hopes by the end of it, you’ll come to root for them just as much as she does. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
She is represented by Meire Dias of Bookcase Agency.
