About the Book:
(Immortal Guardians #6)
by Dianne Duvall
Paperback/eBook, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra
The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out...
U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.
Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...

He drew his thumb across the back of her hand. Her skin was so soft.
He heard her heartbeat pick up again. “Are you afraid of me, Heather?”
“No. Not really. Why?”
“Your heartbeat keeps picking up whenever I’m near you or when I touch you.”
Color flooded her cheeks.
“It’s okay. I won’t be hurt if you are. Considering how we met—”
“I’m not afraid of you.”
Ethan studied her. If she wasn’t afraid of him . . .
She groaned. “This is so embarrassing. You’re going to think I’m a total loon.”
“I assure you I won’t.”
She bit her lip. “You must know you’re good-looking. I mean, women probably throw themselves at you wherever you go.”
“You’re attracted to me?” he asked with some astonishment . . . and a lot of interest. This night—or morning—was taking an unexpected and wholly welcome turn.
She covered her eyes with her free hand. “Yes.”
“Good.” When she peeked through her fingers at him, he smiled. “I’m incredibly attracted to you.”
She lowered her hand. “You’re just saying that to be nice.”
“No, I’m not. Why do you think my eyes keep glowing? I assume my eyes are glowing faintly?”
“They’re doing that because I want you.”
She remained quiet for a moment. “They were glowing when you fought the other vampires. Somehow I doubt you wanted them.”
He laughed, pain again streaking through his back. “I was furious. My eyes glow whenever I’m gripped by strong emotion. Anger. Pain. Grief. Lust. The stronger the emotion, the brighter they glow.”
She was quiet for a moment.
“Does it frighten you or make you uneasy when they glow?” he asked tentatively.
“No.” Her eyes locked with his. “I think they’re pretty when they glow.”
Now his heart began to thud against his ribs.
“I know I sound like a broken record,” she murmured, still staring into his eyes, “but this is so weird.”
He grinned. “It is weird. Here I thought I’d dispatch a few vampires, then head over to a friend’s house to stave off the loneliness that’s been plaguing me of late, and instead, I get to spend the day with you.” He narrowed his eyes. “I do get to spend the day with you, don’t I?”
She smiled. “Yes.”
He winked. “I’m going to tell myself it’s because you enjoy my charming company instead of it being because you’re afraid more vampires might show up.”
She laughed, and seemed to relax for the first time. “And if I admit that it’s for both reasons?”
Something warm unfurled in his chest as he gave her hand a squeeze. “Then I’d say my day just got a hell of a lot brighter.”
