Devoured by Darkness
Guardians of Eternity
*RT Reviewer’s Choice Award Nominee for Best Vampire Romance of 2010!*
Tane is a Charon, sworn to hunt and kill rogue vampires. His new assignment seems like a waste of his talents…until he catches up with the Jinn he's been sent to capture. Half human, half demon, Laylah has a vulnerable streak that strikes right through to Tane's cold heart. He should be furious when she uses her powers to bind them together, preventing him from dragging her before the Commission. Instead he welcomes any reason to stay close enough to touch, to taste, to seduce…
Laylah doesn't know why she was chosen to protect a child who may be the catalyst in a war between good and evil. But the mysteries of her past pale compared to the dangers approaching. Tane is devastatingly strong, breathtakingly sensual. And Laylah will have to trust in every ounce of that strength, because her enemies are drawing near, eager to destroy them both…
More clues to an approaching darkness are revealed in the newest installment of Ivy's long- running and consistently excellent Guardians of Eternity series. New players are being added
to Ivy's world, ramping up the action. Ivy always packs her books with buckets of action, emotion and sexy sizzle; and the continuing presence of Levet, the mini gargoyle, is welcome comic relief. Another winner!
As Charon, or rogue vampire executioner, Tane is none too popular with his fellow vampires. His most recent assignment has him tracking a half jinn/half human named Laylah who was
part of the recent werewolf debacle. According to the supernatural commission, half-jinn are abominations and not allowed to live, but feisty Laylah is not going down so easily.
Coldhearted Tane suddenly finds his emotions unexpectedly thawing, but is their passion doomed? Evil vampire Marika is hunting Laylah for the secret she guards - a child wrapped
in spells who may be the catalyst for the return of the terrifying Dark Lord.
