A music professor finds herself mixed up in a world of vampires, immortals, and humans with extraordinary gifts in this paranormal romance.
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 New York Times bestselling author
“This is a strong start in what looks to be a thrilling and chilling new paranormal series. Fantastic!”—RT Book Reviews
“Electrifying, Funny, Lust-inducing, and Inventive.”—Fresh Fiction
Praise for New York Times Bestselling Author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series
“If you love J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark, then you need to put Dianne Duvall and her Immortal Guardians books in your reading wheelhouse.”—Literati Literature Lovers
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. \n
Fingers crossed there is going to be sequel.
Nicely done! Action, romance, and intrigue with a twist! I am a fan!
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a wonderful read. Refreshing and well written, this story kept me wanting to read more. I am defiantly going to keep this book in my collection.
