Overview

Running from an unknown past…

JJ Justice has spent her adulthood lost and alone and vulnerable to the haunting of a past she can’t remember. It’s no wonder she feels different from other people and not surprising that she chose the police force as a way of standing up for others who are defenseless against the evils of the world, but when her only friend and partner is brutally murdered by a creature not of this world, JJ discovers a greater purpose. She is called to hunt the monsters only she can see. Once again, she resigns herself to living her life alone, because the one thing she knows for sure is that letting people in only causes pain.
Guardian of the Race, Bernardo ad Tormeo, longs for a woman of his own, one that’s as fun loving and loyal as his Liege Lord’s Lady, Grace, and as soft and gentle as his fellow Guardian’s mate, Hope, but the chances of meeting such a woman seem slim to none. What with the nightly patrols and his gaming business, he hasn’t the time to go searching for love.
Nardo is sworn to protect his people and their human cousins from the demons who cross over from the Otherworld. He never thought he would be hunting a vampire; just like he never thought of falling in love with a leather clad ex-cop who can kick demon butt with the best of them.
How do you romance a woman who thinks more of knives than roses? How do you help her fight the demons of her soul when she can’t remember who they are? Nardo doesn’t know, but he’s determined to find out. He only hopes he and his new love can find the answers before a monster from Joy’s past takes away the only woman he will ever love.

    Rhoades has taken the idea of the paranormal and what is ¿accept

    Rhoades has taken the idea of the paranormal and what is ‘accepted’ as paranormal and shaped it to create something that is completely her own.  The world of the Guardians of the Race is one that is fully developed to the extent that you feel like it truly does exist and that these individuals could really be living on your block.  Rhoades’ phenomenal storytelling skills along with her solid grasp of the English language combine to create a world that you not only visualize but also visit during the time that you read this tale. 

    Rhoades melds vividly intricate descriptions with allusions to create a solid setting for her story.  By creating this world she roots her readers firmly in this novel that they won’t be able to put down.  She feeds all of your needs throughout.  It’s fun, exciting, enjoyable, awe inspiring, suspenseful, and above all, romantic.

    Although each story in this series can has a main character/couple, the rest of the ‘family’ remains front and centre in the story. I really love how all of the lead characters may be of 1 of 2 races, thus bringing them together with a commonality, but it is who they are that keeps them together.  Although on the surface each of the stories in this series are similar – a Guardian of the Race and a Daughter of Man become a couple – each story is as unique as the couples themselves.  Each person is vividly real and extremely unique.  The female lead in this instalment is a very standout individual who contrasts with the male lead.  They are true proof that opposites attract in the most explosive of ways.  

    Rhoades doesn’t simply tell this story, she creates an escape from the everyday for her audience.  This story is complete in and of itself but definitely follows from the previous novel in the series and leaves you wanting more.  My suggestion?  Read it!
