An elegant vampire goes to hell and back for the demon he loves in this paranormal romance by the New York Times bestselling author of When Darkness Comes.
Lady Shay is the last of her kind. Half human, half Shalott demon, her blood has healing and aphrodisiac powers that vampires consider more precious than gold. Though Shalotts are renowned assassins, a curse held over Shay lands her on an auction block, where she catches the eye of a Vampire named Viper.
The beguiling chief of a deadly vampire clan, Viper can't explain his longing to possess the beautiful Shalott who once saved his life. He desires both her blood and body, but even when she is his, he wants above all for her to surrender willingly.
But a hidden evil continues to stalk Shay—one that endangers the very existence of Viper's kind. But the love he feels for her is enough to make him go to hell and back if it means spending an eternity with her in his arms.
Part human, part Shalott demon the feared assassins of the demon race bronze-skinned, golden-eyed beauty Lady Shay has blood that's a potent mix of vampire aphrodisiac and cure-all. Bound by a curse to the guardianship of a greedy troll, Shay soon finds herself being sold to a stunning, silver-haired vampire whose life she saved only weeks earlier. Named Viper, the vampire is determined to win her for his own without the aid of enchantment but Shay finds it hard to believe that Viper wants anything but to drain her dry. Fueling Shay's mistrust is the memory of her father, lost to a vampire clan when Shay was just a child. As it turns out, that same clan is now in pursuit of Shay, planning to use her blood to cure their leader's mysterious illness. Viper and Shay spend most of the book outrunning the clan's dark forces all manner of monsters and hellhounds occasionally losing themselves in their spiraling emotions. Though black satin sheets, gothic candelabra and the demonic beasts feel stock, the second book in Ivy's Guardians of Eternity trilogy delivers plenty of atmosphere and hot-blooded seduction.
I found this series by chance and can’t stop reading!
I just stumbled upon this series and the 2 I've read so far are really good. There's humor and romance and action and characters are so real. I think Viper is my favorite.
