Shades of Darkness
“Ripe with humor, romance, and the thrill of the chase…exciting.”
The Guardians of Eternity think they’ve averted the disaster that could destroy them. But in New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Ivy’s world of temptation, lust, and secrets, one slip could change everything . . .
Chaaya endured centuries as a sacrifice, protecting her people from an evil that could destabilize all magic. At long last, her servitude is over—and she’s raring to have some fun. The baddest ghost-girl in Las Vegas has a talent for causing mayhem. And for getting under the skin of her solid, silent bodyguard, the vampire Basq . . .
Basq doesn’t let anyone close. He’s learned the costs of companionship. But reckless, disrespectful Chaaya, with her fiery temper and her fierce loneliness, isn’t like anyone else. Staying near her isn’t just a duty, it’s a hunger. When a prisoner of Chaaya’s last battle escapes, possibly seeking Chaaya’s nemesis, Basq isn’t letting her chase through a hellscape mirror London alone. But when the choice is between abandoning everything that’s kept them alive, or each other, survival will take not only desire—but trust . . .
Ivy's multilayered and action-packed 16th Guardians of Eternity paranormal romance (after Conquer the Darkness) follows rowdy, badass ghost Chaaya, who's been dead for centuries and causes trouble wherever she goes, despite the best efforts of her begrudging bodyguard, Basq, a vampire. When evil wolf-shifter Brigette, one of Chaaya's old enemies, escapes from her dungeon, Queen Inga of the Mer-folk calls in Chaaya to catch her. Brigette threatens to unleash an evil that would destroy the world and it's up to Chaaya and Basq to stop her. So when Brigette kidnaps one of the Queen's closest confidants and jumps through a portal, Chaaya and Basq chase after her into another world. Their quest leads them through multiple dimensions, and along the way their feelings for each other grow from animosity to love. Ripe with humor, romance, and the thrill of the chase, this exciting installment will please returning readers and welcome new ones.
