 ~If Images are worth a thousand words, hers sing a thousand Eternal songs~

The blood of a Guardian, the heart of an artist, no one can hide the truth from Amanda Hayworth. Focusing her visions through her camera lens, she reveals secrets no one plans to expose, even her own. To protect herself, Mandy hides her ability in plain sight, photographing local bands and showcasing the dramatic images on her website. Most bands beg for a feature article. But the new lead singer of one particular up and coming band isn’t like anyone she’s ever met. Lucien entangles her with his mystery and makes Mandy want things she’s never wanted before—strings.

Lucien Solvak has to impress an influential music blogger whose promotion could skyrocket his new band to stardom or flush them straight into the gutters. But the moment Mandy aims her camera his direction, he fears the images will expose his ties to the immortal he’s sworn to protect and destroy his one chance to live out his musical dream. Hiding from her camera is tough enough. Denying his growing feelings becomes an impossible feat, forcing Lucien to choose between oaths as a Guardian, his rock-star dreams, and the girl he wants.

Secrets define them. Lucien’s bind him to silence; Mandy’s bring her nothing but pain and disappointment. Only when they focus on what’s behind the images can they embrace their secrets for what they are—truth.

Images Eternal (The Shoalman Chronicles, Book 1)She is the IT girl, the one all the wanna be rock stars want to impress. Amanda blogs about musicians and is powerful enough to make or break them, so being photographed, talked about or even noticed by her is like winning the musical lotto. So why does the new lead singer for an established band want to avoid the spotlight or the camera?

Lucian is gorgeous, with the voice of an angel, and the beautiful woman behind the camera he just blocked has him feeling flashbulbs going off in his heart. Too bad she doesn’t mix business with pleasure, but can a compromise be made? They both hide secret lives, they both have so much to lose, but pictures never lie and with Mandy’s special ability, her camera tells her the color of the essence of the person in front of her, and Lucian’s photos are telling her nothing, which is telling her something huge, but she doesn’t catch on. She is a Guardian, he is a Guardian, but they are sworn to secrecy and it hurts. Will a twist of fate give them permission to be together or will they be forced to go their separate ways, while continuing their duties to protect immortals?

Images Eternal by Toni Decker puts paranormal romance onto a whole new track as this time out, the denial and the alpha tendencies seem to come from Mandy while Lucian is wearing his heart on his sleeve and desperate to have a chance with the woman he was meant to find and cherish. Refreshing, a little different and kind of hot, Toni Decker has a fresh tale to share with a fresh writing style that is sure to suck each reader in, one page at a time.

I received this copy from Toni Decker in exchange for my honest review.
