Darkness Dawns By Dianne Duvall

Darkness Dawns (Immortal Guardians #1)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control . . .

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible -- when it mean forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.


A brilliant and entertaining read! It had the feel of one of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter novels or a J.R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood read. Filled with action, hot sexy scenes and laughs, a great example of a perfect paranormal romance read. I thoroughly enjoyed the two main characters, Sarah was everything I love in a female lead, and she was strong, brave and a little quirky. I laughed out loud when she stabbed Bastien in the ass, not to mention at the start when she knocked out the bad guys with her shovel. Roland was hot and dreamy, putting aside the potential danger and his own pain to heal Sarah whenever she was injured. I also liked how even though he was protective of her, he didn’t try to lock her away in bubble-wrap when she made it clear she wanted to help, he believed in her strength and had faith in her which you sometimes don’t get in a romance novel. It drew me in right from the start and even the supporting characters play a valuable role in the story and keep it interesting without overloading the plot with too much detail or confusing storylines. There is nothing bad I could possibly say about this book and I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

The first book in the DH series is a little iffy, but after that it's all up hill!
