Beach Reads in August Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Beach Reads in August Giveaway Hop!  

We're talking favorite beach reads, and I have to admit that my current favorite read is my upcoming release Night Unbound, Immortal Guardians Book 5.  I'm writing Book 6 in the series now and frequently have to go back and look things up in Night Unbound to ensure I maintain continuity.  Well, every time I do, I get caught up in the story and end up reading it again.  LOL.  It has everything I love in paranormals:  romance, action, passion, and humor.  It's dark and intense one moment, and makes me laugh the next.

BEST ROMANCES OF 2014 (so far)!
"If you are a paranormal romance fan, I recommend this series!"
—Smexy Books

4.5 stars
"Book after book, Duvall brings her readers complex,
fascinating tales of romance, danger and loyalty."
—RT Book Reviews
For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for—and a man she knows has been declared a traitor. 
Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?
Mini Excerpt

Crossing to stand before him, Lisette gripped the lapels of her coat and opened it wide.  A small arsenal hid inside, tucked into various and assorted loops and pockets and sheaths.  “Take your pick.”

His eyes lit with a faint golden glow.  “I can have anything I want?” he asked in a silky voice that turned her insides to mush.

Her pulse leapt.  “Yes.”

“How you tempt me,” he murmured.
