Dianne Duvall portrays a world of temptation, loyalty, and heartbreak. . .a world where danger and desire walk hand in hand. . .
Ami isn't much for trusting strangers. She has a hard time trusting anyone. But she's no coward, and she's no pushover in the protection department either. So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vampires on his own, she doesn't hesitate to save his bacon. Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into. . .
Marcus Graden has been an Immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and he's not interested in backup. From the moment Ami arrives in his life, he can't deny that she's strong, smart, and extremely skilled at watching his back. But she's also destroying his protective solitude and stirring desires he can't bear to awaken. After all, whatever her secrets--how can she defeat death itself?
"A thrilling and chilling new paranormal series. Fantastic!" --Romantic Times
"These dark, kick-ass guardians can protect me any day!" --Alexandra Ivy
Duvall s follow-up to 2010 s Darkness Dawns crackles with energy, originality, and a memorable take-no-prisoners heroine. Marcus is an 800-year-old Immortal Guardian with a loner vibe. Ami is a weapons-savvy modern woman with dark secrets. Marcus doesn t want a Second, and Ami isn t sure she can care properly for the aloof Guardian, but when their friends slyly set them up, instant attraction flares between them along with a strong working relationship. As they navigate through intricate conspiracies and deadly enemies, their own fears and hidden pasts threaten to destroy their relationship even as it forms. While alpha male Marcus is a trifle flat, other story elements compel interest. Whizzing along at light speed while neatly incorporating components from the series start, this sophomore effort sizzles as Duvall hits a more confident writing stride.

Great author! If you like Sherrilyn Kenyon, you will like Dianne Duvall!
Rich storyline, depth in her plots, each book can stand-alone (but you'd miss out on some great books if you didn't read them all!).
I look forward to her next book.
This book was amazing!! I've already read it at least two times... Can't wait to read more of Dianne Duvall books!!
Love this series... Cant wait for the next one:)
