Shameless Summer Giveaway Hop

Today is the first day of the
Shameless Summer Giveaway Hop!

The Shameless Summer Giveaway Hop runs from 12:00am June 8th through 11:59pm June 15th and is hosted by Red Hot Books, Romance Around the Corner, and Michelle's Book Blog.
Participating authors and bloggers are giving away books, swag, and other book related prizes.  So, for my contest, I've decided to give away the winner's choice of either a signed copy of Darkness Dawns or a signed copy of Night Reigns (the first two books in my Immortal Guardians paranormal romance series) + some Immortal Guardians swag.  :-)
Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control . . .

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible -- when it mean forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.

Ami isn't much for trusting strangers.  She has a hard time trusting anyone.  But she's no coward, and she's no pushover in the protection department either.  So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vampires on his own, she doesn't hesitate to save his bacon.  Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into . . .

Marcus Grayden has been an immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and at the moment he's not interested in backup.  From the moment Ami arrives in his life, he can't deny that she's strong, smart, and extremely skilled at watching his back.  But she's also destroying his protective solitude and stirring desires he can't bear to awaken.  After all, whatever her secrets -- how can she defeat death itself?
