Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.  

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.

Reviews have begun to roll in, and I could not be more pleased.

Long and Short Reviews thrilled me with a fabulous 5-star review. You can read the full review HERE.

 Linda at Reading Between the Wines Book Club gave Stanislav and Susan's story 5 wine glasses in another fantastic review. :-) You can read it HERE.

 Kari at From the TBR Pile gave Awaken the Darkness a wonderful review, too. You can read it HERE.

Despite her stinging palms and fingers, Susan was happy to be clean as she shut off the water and toweled herself dry. Her ears strained to catch any sound beyond the door but heard nothing. Nor could she hear his thoughts. 
Had he fallen asleep again? 
Had he left? 
A chill skittered through her. 
He hadn't died, had he? 
Alarmed, she hurriedly donned her clothes, grabbed a comb, then yanked open the door. 
Relief suffused her. 
He sat on the bed, facing her. Both hands gripped the edge of the mattress so tightly his knuckles shone white. His head hung low. 
She took a step toward him. "Are you okay?" 
Nodding, he raised his head and opened his mouth to speak, then stared at her with an expression she couldn't read. 
"What?" she asked when the silence stretched. 
His lips curled up in a tired smile. "Nothing. You're just beautiful." 
Heat flooded her cheeks. 
His smile broadened. "Even more so when you blush." 
Grinning, she approached him. "Sweet talker."
I hope you'll enjoy their story!
