BLURB:
Dianne Duvall returns to the world of the Immortal Guardians, where danger—and desire—make every decision count. . .
 
Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple—she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it.
 
√Čtienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years—long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher. . .

Excerpt
 
He chose a DVD and slipped it into the player.  Rising, he grabbed the remote and joined her on the sofa.
 
And he didn’t leave any space between them.  His hip pressed against hers as he draped his arm across the back cushion.  “I keep telling myself to keep my distance, but . . .”
 
She nodded, leaning into his side.  “I’m too tired to worry about it right now.”  She smiled at the television.  “Monk?”
 
He nodded.  “It’s smart.  It’s funny.  And it advocates true love.”
 
“It’s a tragic love, though.  His wife is dead.”
 
“Don’t most love affairs end tragically?” he asked, frowning at the screen.
 
“I don’t know.  Your brother seems pretty happy.”
 
His face lightened.  “Yes, he does.  I didn’t see that coming.”
 
“If you tell me you’re psychic, too—”
 
He laughed.  “I’m not.”  Still smiling, he glanced down at her.  “I didn’t see you coming either.”
 
Manic butterflies invaded her stomach as she licked lips suddenly gone dry.

The amber glow returned to his eyes as he followed the motion with his gaze.

The TV brightened with the menu for Monk.

He looked toward it.

Krysta sighed.  She had been sure he was going to kiss her.
 
“I thought I would be pushing my luck if I did,” he murmured.
 
“Oh.”  She didn’t even care that he was reading her thoughts again.
 
“I also thought you might need a little distance.”
 
She fought the urge to laugh.  Their sides were glued together and his arm now rested across her shoulders, his fingers toying with her hair.
 
His lips twitched as he glanced at her from the corner of his eye.  “Note I said I thought you needed some distance.  Tonight I find myself needing the opposite, so this was my compromise.”
 
She smiled.  “I’ll take it.”
