Synopsis: 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 Grayden has been an immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and at the moment 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?
Review: We come back to the world of the Immortal Guardians in the second book, Night Reigns. The main characters are Marcus and Ami with a lot of the supporting characters from Darkness Dawns making their presence known. Marcus is very independent and has given up on love and trust. Ami doesn't trust many people, except for Seth, David, and Darnell, who have made a big impact on her life. Now she's Marcus' Second - she handles his daytime activities and has his back during battle. There is a dangerous enemy gunning for the Immortal Guardians and Ami. During these stressful times, can Marcus and Ami learn to trust each other?
I was happy to learn more about the mythos of the Immortal Guardians, but there is a big secret that I can't wait to learn what it is (not given away in this book)! The characters get richer and more detailed and there is so much explosive action and sizzling hot romance. Ms. Duvall's writing gets more polished with each book and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
