From the scorching pits of Tartarus, a warrior emerges with a deadly need for more than vengeance…
A loner, Dagan, lives with an inexorable thirst he’s kept hidden for eons, even from his fellow Guardians. Until he meets a beautiful, maddening human who awakens in him a hunger that shakes him to his very core, and threatens to shatter his tightly erected shields, exposing his dangerous secret. And wanting her is a path leading to destruction.
Driven to find her missing mother in a shadowy world, Shae Ion refuses to be sidetracked. When she becomes the target for a sinister force, a sinfully sexy and utterly impossible immortal abducts her, and he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe.
Stuck in an isolated place with the reclusive Guardian who allows no one close, Shae struggles to control her new burgeoning powers, and is unprepared for the tangled emotions he stirs in her. But passion has a way of obliterating barriers.
However, the road to happiness is strewn with treachery. Nothing is sacred or safe. When a ruthless old enemy resurfaces, and comes after Shae, they are drawn into a terrifying, supernatural battle. And not even Dagan, a lethal immortal warrior who’d lay down his life for her, can save her now…
** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **
I love this series. I do not believe I can begin to quantify exactly how much I love it. Absolutely more than chocolate. And caramel. (All that buttery, creamy goodness.) Perhaps even more than Swedish Fish. (Okay, let’s not go completely crazy.) Which is certainly high praise. I geek out on most things mythology related and this twist on Gods and immortality with the addition of archangels and demons kept me enthralled with every page I read. The larger than life and panty-evaporating Guardians certainly increase blood flow and elevate the body temperature. I would give most anything to step into this realm full-time. And the only reason this story did not rate a full “Knappogue Castle” on my scale was due to the fact that a few surprises and reveals were figured out by me. A fabulous read nevertheless.
My rating: Midleton
