About this ebook

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Lara Adrian, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Midnight Breed series: "I'm addicted to Tina Folsom's books! The Scanguards® series is one of the hottest things to happen to vampire romance. If you love scorching, fast-paced reads, don't miss this thrilling series!"

After being kidnapped by a vampire hunter, vampire bodyguard Yvette's first instinct is to kill the bastard. But before she gets the chance, she realizes that he was double-crossed by the witch he was working for and now is in as much danger as she is.

To get his brother out of trouble, bounty hunter / vampire slayer Haven has to deliver the young actress Kimberly to a witch. Unfortunately, she's protected by the very creature he hates most: a vampire.

As Yvette and Haven try to escape their prison and rescue the actress and Haven's brother, will their natural hatred for each other keep them apart or is the passion that bubbles up between them strong enough for them to dare risk their lives to defeat the witch from harnessing the greatest power of all?


The Scanguards Vampires series is full of fast-paced action, scorching love scenes, witty dialogue, and strong heroes and heroines. Vampire Samson Woodford lives in San Francisco and owns a security/bodyguard company, Scanguards, which employs both vampires and humans. And eventually some witches. Throw in a few immortal guardians and demons later in the series, and you'll get the drift! Each book can be read as a standalone and always centers around a new couple finding love, but the series is more enjoyable when read in order. And of course, there are always a few running jokes - you'll understand when you meet Wesley, a wannabe witch. Enjoy!

4 stars — Another reread (7 years later), but I enjoyed this one more than the previous books on reread. Which is not to say that it didn’t have some points that irked me, but all in all I felt more sucked in. Maybe I liked Haven more? I don’t know…but it kept my attention more than the other books. This is the last book I had read previously, so the next will be brand new! So Yvette. Hmmm…she left me feeling conflicted. I felt her heartache, and I loved that underneath she was vulnerable, but her b*tchy shield kind of annoyed me. But more than that, and here comes the irk, I hated her whole position on children, being a mother, and the reason she was upset about being infertile. I get that part of it is a product of her human time and that era, but hello…it’s the modern world, adjust your world-view. I think the problem I had is that there was a constant pronouncement of she’s not a real woman because she can’t bear children, or she’s broken, or men will only love women who could have children, and JUST LIKE IN GABRIEL’S MATE, instead of her clearly changing her view and learning that that’s messed up, she just ends up finding a guy who doesn’t want children either and they’re all good. Uh, no. Hell no. As a woman who doesn’t want children, these topics tend to raise my hackles as it were… BUT, see here’s the thing…if I can look past that part, I enjoyed their romance more than in the previous books. And as always, I enjoy the world, I enjoy the large cast of characters, I enjoy the plot and action. So it was definitely a stronger read in general. I just feel like either the author has some very strange hangups and they are coming across in her books…or she doesn’t realize that’s how it’s coming across, and she forgets that we need to see characters learn and grow. It’s an unfortunate theme. But for realz yo…I did enjoy the plot. I loved learning more about witches, and seeing an expansion of the world. I also love seeing glimpses of the other characters whose stories are still to come, and getting updates from stories we’ve already read. I will admit I was bummed the dogs didn’t play a larger role…but I’m an animal person, what can I say. I can’t decide if I pursue more in this series after I catch up with the ones I own, or just let it go. It’s so hard to decide, because there are good things and bad things! I guess we’ll see!
