Dangerously Divine, by Deborah Blake
This is not a usual book set in Minnesota – it’s book 2 in one series, and a continuation of another three book series. None of the previous books are set in Minnesota; but this one features Gregori Sun, who comes to a monastery in Minneapolis to recover from tragedy. While volunteering in a soup kitchen, he meets librarian Ciera Evans. Naturally, she is adept in researching through old and valuable books; but she’s also adept in butt-kicking vigilante action on the city’s bad guys! (Shhh! That part is kind of a secret) I like all the books in this series; but it was particularly fun to read about the library and explore settings around the Cities in this fictional world!
From Amazon: “Though his physical wounds have healed, Gregori Sun, the eldest of the Riders, remains in spiritual turmoil. His search for his mother, the one person able to heal his soul and save his life, is failing—until he crosses paths with a beautiful and fascinating librarian who might be the key to his salvation…
Ciera Evans’s bookish ways are just a guise. The product of a difficult past, she has dedicated her life to saving lost teens—by any means necessary. She works alone, but when a dark, brooding stranger proposes they team up to solve both their problems, she is tempted—in more ways than one…
After Ciera and Sun’s plans are derailed by dangerous enemies, they find themselves entangled in an ungodly affair—one that will force them to either find new strength together or be forever haunted by their pasts alone.”
