In this USA Today–bestselling paranormal romance, a gifted assassin and a handsome vampire join forces to tackle an evil conspiracy.
Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her “special abilities” aren’t much, but the plan is simple—she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it’s bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He’s a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it.
Étienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years—long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she’s exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger too. He’ll have to accept Krysta’s help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher…

“These dark, kick-ass guardians can protect me any day!”—New York Times–bestselling author Alexandra Ivy on Darkness Dawns
Krysta Linz is a kick-butt vampire hunter whose world is taken for a sexy spin when she meets Immortal Guardian tienne d'Alen on in Duvall's fast-paced and humorous latest paranormal (after Phantom Shadows). After receiving an education on the differences between vampires (bad guys) and Immortal Guardians (similar to vampires, but definitely good guys), Krysta is both intrigued and chastened as she realizes that her self-imposed task of eradicating all vampires is much bigger than she thought. In turn, tienne is deeply fascinated by this small but gifted mortal who fights like a banshee. As they struggle to overcome their initial mutual distrust and fully acknowledge their growing attraction, Krysta's gifts play a larger role in the endless battle among Guardians, vampires, and a larger enemy. The plot occasionally gets mired in the confusing subplots, large cast, and setups for future books, but series fans will find it a strong installment.
A bit of an abrupt ending but definitely a yummy read on a cold Winter's day!
