Sarah Bingham is a teacher on a break and all she want to do at the moment is plant her vegetable garden. She ran over by what she thinks is the world fastest bear until she hears noises that sound more human than animal. Her life changes for ever when she goes to investigate.
Roland Warbrook is an Immortal Guardian whose only goals in life are to left alone and kill lots of vampires to protect the innocent. He has no interest in forming lasting relationships since he has been betrayed one too many times. Those that love him most tease him about being 'antisocial' and go out of their way to bring him out of his shell. All that changes when a set up leads him to being rescued by Sarah Bingham.
Seth is the leader of the Immortal Guardians tries his best to look out for all those he holds dear, the Immortals and the Gifted Ones and the innocents but has recently learned that he is not infallible. I mention him because he should be mentioned and he is my favorite character.
Sebastian 'Bastian' Marston is the misguided vampire who has a serious need for revenge against Roland but keeps missing his target.
I was supposed to be reading Dianne Duvall's to latest books that I got through NetGalley and somehow ended up reading this book again (3rd time). So, Dianne, I apologize for going back to the beginning but I just couldn't help myself because once I started reading this book I was hard pressed to stop reading. I will get to those other books though, I promise.
There were so many parts of this book that I really enjoyed and I would tell you about all of them but then you wouldn't want to read the book because I would have basically recited the whole book. The characters grab you from the beginning and keep you glued to every page so recommend finding a locked room in an empty house to reduce the aggravation of being interrupted while reading this book.
Favorite Quote (Haven't had any of those in a while):
“It was unintentional and he regrets it. He expected her to come along docilely, not shoot him in the hamstrings and stab him in the ass.”--Seth
