Shadows Strike

(Immortal Guardians #6)

by Dianne Duvall

Paperback/eBook, 320 pages

Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra

ISBN 1420129821


The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out…


U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.


Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive…


“What’s wrong?” Ethan asked, touching her face. “Have you changed your mind?”

Heather studied every inch of Ethan’s body. His broad shoulders. The heavy muscles of his chest and arms and abs. So perfect. And she was anything but.

She met his glowing gaze, “No. It’s just . . .”

He raised his eyebrows and sent her an encouraging smile. “What?”

Heather loosed a miserable sigh and mentally cursed every man she had ever dated. “You’re perfect,” she declared and cringed when it emerged almost as an accusation.

He grinned. “And you’re not?”

“No, I’m not,” she said. “Trust me when I say I’m aware of every single one of my flaws because my damned telepathy allowed me to hear past boyfriends mentally catalog them.”

All levity fled his handsome, perfect features. “I don’t understand. What flaws? I don’t see any.”

“You will when I’m naked,” she muttered, hating the insecurity instilled in her by the men of her past.

He considered her thoughtfully. “How attached are you to those clothes?”

Heather blinked. “Not very. Why?”

He blurred.

Heather felt a tug and looked down. Her mouth fell open. “Holy crap!” She was completely naked.

Ethan laughed. “One of the perks of being immortal.”

She reached for the covers.

Ethan captured her hand and brought it to his lips, stopping her. “Don’t. Let me see you.”

She swallowed. “What about you? You’re still semi-clothed.”

Rolling off the bed, he stood beside it, blurred, then stilled, as bare as she was.

Wow. Ethan could easily grace the pages of one of those hunky guy calendars. His body was perfectly sculpted, thick with muscle, and very aroused.

She swallowed.

“Now,” he said, his voice lowering to a purr as he knelt on the bed beside her, “let me see if I can find all of these flaws the imbeciles you dated in the past thought they saw. Lie back.”

Heather did as ordered, her heart pounding in her chest.
