Delve into an exciting new stand-alone novel in New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly), "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews) Immortal Guardians series.
Nick Belanger can't stop thinking about the single mother who lives next door. She's smart. She's funny. She's so beautiful he can't stare at her too long for fear his eyes will start to glow. But Kayla thinks he's just an ordinary guy who works in security. Finding out he instead is a powerful immortal warrior who hunts and slays psychotic vampires for a living may not go over well, particularly since she has a daughter she doesn't want to endanger.
Kayla Dorman can keep neither her gaze nor her thoughts from straying to the man next door. Who can blame her really? He is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome with smart, charming, and honorable thrown in. He's also a few years younger than her and surely would not be interested in a single mom who hasn't dated since her divorce. At least that's what she thinks until an accident nearly takes her life and Nick risks all to save her.
The dynamics of their relationship swiftly change. The friendship they've developed over the years deepens into love as the two spend every minute they can together, laughing and teasing, never suspecting a threat may lurk in the shadows. But that threat soon strikes, making it clear that Nick is the target and his enemy doesn't care if Kayla gets caught in the cross fire. Though Kayla bravely rises to the occasion and is determined to do whatever it takes to help Nick defeat his enemy, Nick is terrified of losing her. Can he identify and eliminate his new nemesis before the man takes everything from him?
Broken Dawn by Dianne Duvall
The Immortal Guardians series continues but we are now in a new city with some little seen before characters.
Nick is an Immortal Guardian who is in love with his next-door neighbor. When Kayla, his next-door neighbor has a “would be” fatal car accident until Nick calls in Seth to save her. That causes a quick encounter with a human from Nick’s far past that creates a series of events that threaten both Nick and Kayla’s lives.
I really enjoyed getting into a new area and new characters. I especially loved how Duvall tied in the characters we love to characters we are just getting to know. I was completely thrilled to discover Nick’s sometimes partner and friend will be a featured character in the new Aldebarian Alliance series and we get to know her quite a bit more before she gets her story told.
As always, Duvall writes riveting and heartwarming stories that keep you coming back for more! Every book is an adventure with characters that become friends you can’t wait to catch up on.
