Publisher's Summary

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....

What the Critics Say

"Both characters have realistic and very human emotions, lending them significant relatability. Duvall uses recurring characters from previous titles to continue building her intriguing paranormal world with increasing flair and writerly skill." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Bastian and Dr. Melanie"

    Bastian is still not the most favorite Immortal. He has a way of annoying the others. He and Melanie have gotten close and are falling in love. World and character building are still moving forward. The Vampires are always a problem and there is a rogue military group making life difficult for Immortals and Vampires.

    "Excellent.. Each time I read them.."


    I first read this around September 25th, 2013. The third in the Immortal Guardian series and I have to admit I liked it better than Kresley Coles’s Immortals After Dark series, of which I read the first 14 then stopped. There was just something more exciting about these books, better storylines, and the characters were so much more likable. But, that’s just my opinion.

    AnyWHO, I Love, love, loved Sebastien and Melanie’s story. He was a jerk every time he opened his mouth and almost every other Guardian wanted him dead. You’ll have to read this book to find out why. His hatefulness was understandable. There were more battles with vampires and more battles with the mercenaries, of which, the Immortals kicked some ass every time. And Melanie almost died twice, until she had to be transformed. And the guy, Emrys, who had tortured Ami for 6 months, finally got what he deserved.

    No matter which book I read I still love Seth and David the best. They are so awesome. No one knows what they are so that makes them more interesting.

    There were a couple of explicit sex scenes in in this and the F-bomb was used 57 times.

    As to the narration: Kirsten Potter is just incredible.

    Story
    "continual inclusive paranormal action erotic drama"

    Paranormal buffet AGAIN. Mostly vampires, immortals (all with dark hair & eyes) & greedy EVIL humans are fighting. There are still characters of different skin tones, ethnics, culture &TIMES, The struggle with good against evil is blurred when mis communications & understanding cause egos to be bruised & revenge to be had. The writer continued adding different looking characters with different personalities.The males vary but the females not so much. All pale just with different hair color. I believe this series is worth the credit/money.. The journey of the groups development is interesting..I would have given the series 5 stars but, there wasn't ANY females with dark skin in the series (black or latina). NOW COME ON!!! So.. Boo hoo Hoo.. I Still have hope for future characters in the series to add diverse female...BUT, the stories as usual are Still intriguing, well written & performed story.. This series is good.. Wondering if DAVE (black male immortal, has any female relatives)

    "The Best Yet (in the series)"

    This was another good paranormal romance, best in the series so far. From the very beginning, the book moved quickly at a good pace and once again, the narrator presented a treat to my ears.

    Story
    "Predictable and adolescent banter"

    This is the second book I have purchased by this author. The first, was interesting and fast paced. I jumped to this book from there, not realizing this book was the 3rd in the series until 3 chapters in. That may be some of my issue in failing to connect with these characters. The banter was funny at times, but I never really fell in love with anyone. Story line wasn't terribly exciting or clever, just okay.

    "Love this series"

    I've listened to this audio book so many times I cam almost wow it. Kristen does a fantastic job narrating it and I loved the dynamics of this story. Gotta go now and listen to Richart's story.

    "Melanie and Sebastián"

    This series is turning out to be pretty good. It's a totally different spin on vampires. I really like the characters. It has plenty of action and the romance is sweet with a little spice. Strong female characters that can "kick butt".
