Lady Shay is the last of her kind. Half human, half Shalott, her blood is a precious aphrodisiac to vampires, who consider it more precious than gold. Though Shalotts are renowned assassins, a curse held over Shay lands her on the slave auction block, where her fate is uncertain. Viper, the beguiling chief of a deadly vampire clan, can't explain his longing to possess the beautiful Shalott who once saved his life, but now he is free to do anything he wants with her. Strangely, while he desires both Shay's blood and body, he wants her to surrender willingly. A hidden evil has been stalking Shay since she left the slave market with Viper. It is an evil that endangers the very existence of Viper's kind, and there's no reason he should court such danger just to protect a Shalott. But the love he feels for Shay is enough to make him willing to go to hell and back if it means spending an eternity with her in his arms.
"The second book in Ivy's Guardians of Eternity trilogy delivers plenty of atmosphere and hot-blooded seduction." (Publishers Weekly)

Irritating heroine ruined story
I love a romance with humor!
The action started immediately and continued throughout! I also loved Le'vay the gargoyle. What a surprise to have a funny and unexpected sidekick. He appeared often enough to keep you listening and laughing at is quips. I enjoyed Shay and Viper. Two alpha personalities constantly protecting the other. They were constantly denying their feelings for each other but their actions blatantly showed the opposite. Very enjoyable to see these two fall hard. Le'vay, although cowardly was just funny!
Surprisingly, this was the first time I didn't compare one of the other books I had read to this one.
