Knights of White - a league of warriors, chosen by the archangel Raphael and led by Jag & Salvador, they fight the demons - the Beasts of Darkness...

Sarah can hear spirits/ghosts, who help her to protect the living... she works with Edward and Cathy - tech and witch.. they have been called to NoWhere Texas, where people are acting agressively and there is black rain... she meets up with Max - a warrior of 400 years - whose family had been killed by the beasts - his brother becoming one - and he started to be a beast with a dark soul, but Salvador rescued him and made him a knight... he is at a crossroads, as he feels the darkness within him becoming more powerful, and in the last fight, he killed a human, not remembering how and fearing the beast had taken over him completely... he goes to Salvador expecting death, but Salvador asks him if he would choose life, and sends him to NoWhere Texas on a test...

And he finds Sarah, and recognizes his mate - but will not mate with her (which is sex including a marking bite on her shoulder) until she makes the decision herself and until he has passed his test - if he fails, and they are mated, she would spend hell with him... There is great attraction to each other, but more than that a sense of calmness when near the other, a sense of rightness, a sense of connection...

The demon Vars wants out of the underground prison/hell Salvador sent him, and he is using Allen and Kate, newlyweds that build a house over his 'kingdom'... he uses magic to kill Kate, and tempts Allen to help him with the promise of bringing Kate back to life... Allen does Vars bidding, collecting the three souls (an insane 6-day sexual ritual), and coming back to the circle...

In the meantime, Max's brother, now demon Adrian, has been told to help Vars get his freedom, but Adrian plans to usurp Vars and take his demon soldiers for himself...

There is a face off at the cabin, with White Knights, Sarah and crew, Beasts, demons, etc... and in defending Sarah, Allen tumbles into Max's knife ... and Max remembers that is how the last human died - an accident... and the save Allen, wipe his memories, and he is given another chance to live well and see Kate in the afterlife...

Max earns the confidence and faith that his beast will not take him over, and he & Sarah return to the Knights of White ranch, and Max still delays making sure Sarah makes a decision in calm, not the midst of battle... and finally, they seal the bargain...
