In this dazzling, sensual novel, Dianne Duvall beckons readers into a world of vampires, immortals, and humans with extraordinary gifts…where passion can last forever, if you're willing to pay the price…
Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control…
In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible—when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect...
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?
Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire. . .
Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different--and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question--he can't put her in danger. But she isn't asking him. . .
Reading these books was so fantastic! I wasn't going to read them, but then knowing that this series had short stories in both Predatory and On the Hunt, I just had to! And I'm so glad that I did, because Dianne Duvall is now one of my favourite authors, because this series was so fantastic!
I loved this world! It had vampires, and immortals, and I loved the differences, because it was really unique and different! It was a great take on vampires and such! So yeah, that was one thing that made these books so fascinating and awesome to read!
The connections that these characters developed with one another were truly incredible! Like how Sarah and Roland both are for organic stuff, Sarah as a personal choice, Roland because it would take extra blood to heal his body from the bad stuff. Yeah, they all fit together very well!
This was a pretty action packed series! The bad guys were pretty darned quick at breeding, and while they weren't great fighters, they had strength in numbers, that the good guys had to decimate! And yeah, that was fantastic to read!
This books were utterly fantastic, and I can't wait to read more of this series!
