“The queen of paranormal romance!”—J.R. Ward, New York Times bestselling author
The ninth book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan's paranormal Dark series.
They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light...
He ran with wolves... materialized from the mists... hijacked the very heavens to whims....
He was the dark guardian of his people. So how, after centuries of a bleak, soulless existence, had he, Lucian Daratrazanoff, suddenly come to the crave petite, curvy colorful lady cop Jaxon Montogomery, who foolishly made it her life's work to protect others from harm?
Fiercely daring, Jaxx would sacrifice anything ot shield others -- particularly since a deadly menace dogged her every footstep, threatening all who got close to her. And strangely seductive, piercingly erotic Lucian was no exception. Lucian was powerfully, piercingly mesmerizing -- oddly gentle yet clearly a born predator. He had vowed to possess her, to hard her for all time. Yet withhis every thirsty kiss, wsas he drawing Jaxon more deeply into danger . . . and his dark, mysterious desires?
The eighth entry in Feehan's popular vampire series (Dark Legend; Dark Fire) follows the same formula as her previous books a Carpathian (an immortal vampire hunter) meets his "lifemate," binds himself to her through an ancient ritual involving blood-letting and hot sex, and together they battle the undead. This time around, Feehan spices up her stale story line with her smart and spunky heroine, police officer Jaxon Montgomery. Former Navy SEAL Tyler Drake, Jaxon's maniacal stepfather, has made it his mission to kill anyone she befriends, which has made her equally determined not to form any close ties. Nevertheless, she can't help feeling intimately connected to Carpathian Lucian Daratrazanoff, who takes her into his care when she is shot while searching a warehouse. Convinced that Jaxon is his life mate, Lucian binds himself to her and brings her "over to the Carpathian race." Together, Jaxx and Lucian destroy vampires, battle Drake and read each other's minds. Their romance is heartfelt and convincingly portrayed. Less believable, however, is the fact that Jaxx doesn't object to her Carpathian transformation, especially considering her independent nature. Nevertheless, Feehan's newest is a skillful blend of supernatural thrills and romance that is sure to entice readers who can stomach the occasional gory scene.

Just finished reading Dark Guardian for the seconded time. I read it years ago and almost forgot what a absolutely wonderful book this is. Fell in love with Lucian and Jaxon all over again.
I like the Dark series and usually can’t wait for the next one to come out. I liked this book but it wasn’t the best by far. In Gabriel’s book Lucien was larger than life and more powerful than any other carpauthian but it seems in this book you have taken some of that power away.
