In this dazzling, sensual novel, Dianne Duvall beckons readers into a world of vampires, immortals, and humans with extraordinary gifts. . .where passion can last forever, if you're willing to pay the price. . .
Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control. . .
In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible--when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect. . .
"These dark, kick-ass guardians can protect me any day!"--Alexandra Ivy
Duvall's enthusiastic debut paranormal employs capable writing and well-executed world-building punctuated by awkward beginner missteps. An as-yet-incurable virus turns some humans into insane, blood-addicted vampires (who, in a refreshing twist, are never presented as lust objects) and others into benign immortals, who make it their mission to protect humanity. Very human music professor Sarah Bingham finds herself thrust into this war when she saves the immortal Roland Warbrook from a vicious attack. The predictable sparks between them turn to flames as the plot inches toward the inevitable question of whether Sarah will become an immortal herself. The immortal society is intriguing and fairly original. While this freshman effort doesn't shine, it does well enough to invite hope that the next series installment will be more tightly written.
