An Immortal Guardian…

Lisette is one of the few female Immortal Guardians. Her special gift is that she's a telepath. She has been drawn to Zach ever since she met him. Even when, previously, she was part of a group that captured and interrogated him.

And a mysterious, powerful being

Zach is...well, we don't know what Zach is. He's big, he's very powerful, he's ancient, and he has wings. He's an Other, but what's an Other? Seth, leader of the Immortal Guardians, used to be an Other but chose a different path and came to live among humans. Zach helped Seth in a previous book, and put himself in the cross hairs of the Others.

A deadly vampire army

Another vampire army has arisen, intent on taking down the Immortal Guardians. This new army is eerily similar to the one they wiped out before, which shouldn't be possible.  Seth believes Zach betrayed the Immortal Guardians, and Zach suffers the consequences. Lisette is warned to stay away from Zach.

When Zach returns—gravely injured—months later, Lisette can't stand by. She disobeys Seth and helps Zach. She believes in Zach, and believes they are meant to be together.

Humor, Joy, Tragedy, and Love

Throughout the book, Duvall weaves clever, fun humor. We need it, because the war continues and the stakes are raised.  The Immortal Guardians are in mortal danger. Mystery surrounds those behind the new vampire army.  Zach has a change of status, which takes the series in a new direction.  We learn some of Seth's background and see some things about him we've never seen before. There is joy. There is terrible tragedy. And there is great love.

We get an intriguing teaser as to what the Others might be, but is it a red herring? We can only wait and see!

CRAVE THE NIGHT Earns 4.5♥s!


(Midnight Breed, #12)

by Lara Adrian


Crave the Night cover,  by Lara Adrian
 Rating: 4.5♥s Excellent
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Vampire
Length: Novel
Audience: Adult
Sensuality: Scorcher
Release Date: August 15, 2014

This review assumes some familiarity with the Midnight Breed series. If you haven't read the series, read it now!

 A forbidden love …

Nathan is a Gen One Hunter, a Breed bred and trained to be an emotionless killer. Twenty years ago he was rescued by Hunter and Corinne. Now he's captain of his own squad for The Order under Sterling Chase in Boston.

Jordana Gates is a Breedmate and a darling of Boston high society. Jordana's adoptive father is adamant that she be blood-bonded to a suitable Breed male by the time she's 25—just a few weeks away. But her father's choice of a mate doesn't make her blood run hot like the controlled Nathan does.

And Jordana makes Nathan lose control.

The love story between Nathan and Jordana is scorching, and gut-wrenching. Did I mention scorching? It bears repeating. You'll fall in love with Nathan right beside Jordana. The resolution of Nathan and Jordana's love story is both fun and satisfying.

The plot is full of mystery, murder, lethal danger, dangerous secrets, and secret identities. Once it grabs you, it doesn't let you go.

My guess is that the events in CRAVE THE NIGHT will ultimately be crucial to the overall story arc of the series. It's going to be an interesting adventure. Don't miss the book or the series!

A Series Game Changer

Adam by Teresa Gabelman

Book Description:

Half-breed vampire, Adam Pride, has an almighty chip on his broad shoulders. Trying to move on after finding Angelina married to another, Adam has a decision to make. Remove the chip and move on or kill the man who took what he wanted most in the world, his Angel.

With his heart in pieces, Adam’s on a mission to become the best VC Warrior he can be. It’s not long before fate steps in, turning his world and life as he knows it upside down. Shocking revelations will realign allegiances and draw the VC Warriors onto a new path. This journey is not Adam’s alone. Every Warrior, half-breed and human will be affected by what is to come. The unknown awaits. The battle has just begun.



In the world of The Protectors, the heroes are elite Vampire Council Warriors who have taken an oath to protect both humans and vampires. Humans, vampires, and half-breeds live openly alongside each other. But not always peacefully.

Adam, a half-breed, has a tortured, unhappy past. In Adam, he finally gets the satisfying completion of his story line that fans have been waiting for. But hold on to your e-reader—Adam is about so much more than Adam and Angelina. Momentous events happen in this release. It's a new era in relations between vampires, half-breeds, and humans, with devastating consequences. A troublemaker from the early days returns to, well, cause trouble. A sexy new warrior joins our heroes. The VC Warriors are on the cusp of war.

Teresa Gabelman knows how to write a story that captivates her fans and leaves them wanting the next book NOW.  Slade and Jill's book is next.
