This first book of nine in a romance series is about the "Paladins" who are a group of men dedicated to protect mankind from the "Others" who are in a parallel dimension and come through barriers to wreak havoc on Earth. This is a lesser-known series and a good suggestion for readers of J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
