As Kendall and Logan struggle with their feelings for each other, Logan struggles to protect her from the killers…and from himself.


Excerpt

Kendall couldn’t believe her eyes. Standing before her was the man who had rejected her at the club. His steel gray eyes were amused as they gazed into her green ones. Fury took over her good sense as she stared at him.
“Daddy, no!” she said angrily. “I don’t need a bodyguard, especially this one!”
Her father frowned at her. “What do you mean, especially this one? Do you two know each other?”
“Our paths crossed once,” said Logan, his eyes twinkling with mischief. He was enjoying this way too much.
“Daddy, I don’t need….”
“That’s enough!” St. John said sharply. “This man has been recommended by the security service as the best they have. And the most expensive, I might add. He is now your personal security. Learn to live with it.”
Bristling with indignation, she turned around and ran up the stairs, feeling Logan’s eyes on her back as she went. But she resisted the urge to look back. When she got to her room, she slammed the door and threw herself on her bed. Shaking with fury, she threw her pillows across the room.
A few minutes later, she heard noises in the guest room next to her suite. What was going on? She put her ear against the wall that divided the two rooms and heard furniture being moved and the closet door being opened. She opened her bedroom door and tiptoed to the other room. She couldn’t believe her eyes. Logan Steele had moved some of the furniture to have quicker access to the door. He also had put a large duffel bag down on the floor and had put some of his things in the closet.
Suddenly, he turned around and spotted her. He grinned and said, “I guess you’re stuck with me for awhile.”
“I don’t need you,” she declared.
“Judging by what happened in your room, I’m going to have to disagree with you. My job is to keep you safe, regardless of your personal feelings or mine. Get used to it.”
“Good luck keeping up with me,” she said smugly.
“I have lots of experience keeping up with wayward children.”
“I’m not a child!” she said, anger in her voice.
“That’s debatable,” he said, a smile twitching at the corners of his mouth.
She turned around and flew out of the room and back into hers. She could hear his chuckle before she slammed her door. How dare he treat her like this? She would show him that she could outsmart him!

Kendall has always had everything and any man she has ever wanted. Night after night she goes to the club with one goal. Pick a man out and make sure by the end of the night that he wants her. She feels that she has to prove to herself that someone wants her and she accomplishes this by picking up men at a local club. That is until one night when she attempts to pick someone up and he shoots her down. Not only does he shoot her down, but acts like he couldn't care less about her. Kendall has never been turned down by anyone before, and now isn't sure what she should do with her night. So she ventures to the back room of the club, where only the owners are permitted to go. While trying to find something exciting to do, Kendall witnesses something that she shouldn't and ran. Now she can't remember what she saw that night and people are trying to kill her. Her father's solution to protecting her is to hire her a bodyguard. Logan is trying to crack the mystery behind some of the towns most wealthiest people disappearing. Not only is there nothing pointing towards a source, but there is no type of strings or path to follow other than a local club in town. Logan knows there has to be more than meets eye to the club. Logan gets a special assignment... to protect Kendall St. John a spoiled brat that he turned down at the club the night before. But there is something different about Kendall, she smells different than any other women has to him before. She smells sweet and irresistible. Kendall is a stubborn, spoiled princess that will stop at nothing to make protecting her the toughest job he has had yet. Soon Logan and Kendall find themselves falling for each other... but can Kendall see past what Logan is? or will Kendall die before she learns the truth both about Logan and what she witnessed that night in the club? Guardian Vampire was a surprisingly fast read. I finished it in a little under 3 hours. I just couldn't put it down, I was hanging on ever delicious word that Lauralynn Elliot was feeding me. Guardian Vampire has a little bit of something for everyone, it has romance, action, adventure, intrigue and mystery. It is a great all around read. I loved how the relationship developed between Logan and Kendall, how difficult it was for them to see past both of their stubbornness. It wasn't one of those books that you are immediately thrown into the two main characters having sex, because they find each other hot. There was time for them to get to know each other and to develop an attraction. I would suggest this book to any adult. It is steamy and lustful. Unfortunately this one is a vampire and you will never have a chance with .... but we can't help but have a little bit of hope... right ladies? If you are going to fall for a vampire, let it be Logan!

Short novel and entertaining. Story was a little rushed, minor descriptions and details. A few typos. But for the most part was enjoyable.

Short book/story but I was able to get a good couple hours treat from the read. Be interested to see if another book forms to tell more of their story?

It was too short and not well written. It seemed choopy and didn't give much depth to the characters.

Kendall St John witnesses a terrifying incident when she was on a usual night out at a club. Running scared, her mind has shut out what happened and she is now a target. Kendall's father hires a bodyguard to protect her and she is not happy at all when she meets her guardian.  Logan Steele is fighting is attraction to Kendall. This is becoming increasingly difficult as he sees her changing from poor little rich girl to a lovely young woman. But aside from the obvious reason why he can't be with her, he must find the people who are intent on killing her. If only she could remember what she witnessed! Love, love, love this book!!! Once again, Lauralynn Elliott did not disappoint!! Guardian Vampire is a quick read that is full of action. Kendall is a young woman who vies for her father's love and attention in a very dangerous way. She potentially puts herself in danger every night just to prove self worth. Logan . . .oh wow, Logan I love!!! He tries so hard to fight is feelings for Kendall and even when she is acting bratty or pouting, he shows an amazing amount of compassion towards her. Even when he tells her to cut it out!! In turn, Kendall matures so much because of Logan. She doesn't want him to view her as a spoiled brat, but more importantly, she doesn't want to be like that anymore. Great book, highly recommend!!
