Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians protect humanity from unspeakable horrors--but their hearts are as fragile as any mortal's. . .

For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for--and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?



Ms. Duvall has done it again!  "Night Unbound" is steamy, mysterious, full of intrigue and, of course, deadly vampires and mighty Immortal Guardians.  Lisette, an Immortal Guardian, falls for Zach - believed to be a traitor by Lisette's leader, Seth.   Zach, a sexy Immortal, falls hard for Lisette.  Who doesn't love a hero that will give his all to protect the love of his life?   I really liked Lisette - she's a strong warrior that can defeat any vampire, but she's very vulnerable when it comes to matters of the heart.  She's kind, caring and made me chuckle many times throughout.   In addition to the romance and blossoming love of Zach and Lisette, there is the bigger question of "Who Done It?"  I felt the characters' frustrations as they searched and tried to figure the mystery out.  Ms. Duvall has done a great job of relaying the feelings and thoughts of the characters (I love the mind messages) as well as creating descriptive scenes that made me feel like I was there.
This story is a continuation from the earlier books.  I would recommend reading the rest of the series prior - I had only read two other books so once in a while, I didn't understand a reference.  However, I was still able to read through it without any major issues and follow along and thoroughly enjoyed it.   (Received copy for honest review)
