After Maya is turned into a vampire against her will, vampire and Scanguards bodyguard Gabriel is charged with protecting her and finding her attacker.I thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in the Scanguards Vampire Series, Samson's Lovely Mortal and Amuary's Hellion, and couldn't wait to read this one about Gabriel, who we have gotten to know in the previous books. I definitely wasn't disappointed. This book is suspenseful, a little bit scary, a mystery, and of course very well written romantically erotic. Just simply amazing that so many aspects tied together so well in this story. The love and connection between Gabriel and Maya is undeniable from the first moment and plays out so naturally, as if they truly were meant for each other. She accepts Gabriel's unique and surprising situation and if anything, it's what she always wanted and needed, but did not realize until she met Gabriel. His "situation" is sort of a mystery at first, and I was eagerly curious as to what his problem was, not wanting to stop turning the pages to finally find out! I have to admit, that I can relate to Maya's feelings about it, and I can't say that I wouldn't accept him as he is as well. As always, the love scenes were written beautifully. There was a strong emotional connection between Gabriel and Maya, which made the passionate scenes that more enjoyable for me. This book will not disappoint you.
Gabriel has never guarded a body as perfect as Maya’s. Moreover, Maya's enticing blend of vulnerability and strength is difficult to resist. Yet resist he must. Even as the sexual tension between them rises and the rogue vampire closes in on them, Gabriel refuses to give into his desire. Despite the intimacies they share, Gabriel fears that if he ever reveals himself fully to her, Maya will react like other women have, running from him, and calling him a monster, a freak, a creature not worth her love. Will Maya prove to be the one female who cherishes all that Gabriel is?
I love Maya and Gabriel. Maya is one tough cookie and takes nothing off anyone, including vampires! And Gabriel, my new tormented hero!
The story, as with the previous in the series, has an enjoyable, smooth easy flow. You will be addicted to these randy vampires wanting more. And like the BDB, the series continues and interweaves the characters and ongoing storyline.

The books are a definite recommend for a weekend read or when your in the mood for a tantalizing fix. Of course, hot sexy vampires are the ticket every time!
* Though rated 18+, I did not find the erotica offensive or over the top.
Though, the sexual nature was a bit different and surprising. I completely enjoyed the "difference". and the author’s erotic scenes were believable, tantalizing, and well written as always.
