He does not trust her…
Lucan has one chance to save himself before the darkness he wields consumes him. The vampire would rather damn his soul to Hell, than mate his enemy’s sister. Fate hasn’t left him much choice however, because it prophesies Sabin to end the brutal war on humanity. The longer he waits, the further into the shadows he slips and the closer they all come to being destroyed.
She will betray him…
Sabin experiences daily torture ever since her brother locked her in his hellish dungeon. The only thing that keeps her sane, is the knowledge there is one vampire destined to save her. Even when Lucan rejects the idea they could ever become mated, she knows the fate of the world depends on them being together.
He is darkness; she is light, yet they need each other to survive. Evil is preparing to destroy Sabin, and with each passing second the enemy grows stronger. Time is running out and with the Phoenix God missing, Sabin cannot fulfill the prophesy. There may be only one sacrifice left to make.

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Vampire's Desire by Valerie Twombly is Book 6 in the Guardians series. I don't know about anyone else, but I have been drooling for months waiting for Lucan and Sabin's story and Valerie Twombly did not disappoint! This moody, dark and sexy vampire meets his destiny in this book and I loved it! This is a series read that should be read in series order for the maximum enjoyment of the series and trust me when I tell you it is worth the read! Once again we are confronted with Lowan and his devious plans. And once again we are taken on a rollercoaster ride filled with drama, danger, love, lust, betrayal, redemption and so many OMG moments that I lost count. Valerie Twombly masterfully builds a world of shifters, vampires, witches, fae, demons, humans and immortals that is in danger of falling into chaos. The characters are well developed and designed to provoke emotions that you freely give in to. She promises entertainment and delivers so much more. This is a series that you will want to read over and over. Be warned, once you begin reading Valerie Twombly you will crave her stories like chocolate cake at midnight!
Again, this author has enthralled me with one of her books. While this can 'kinda' be read as a standalone, I would not suggest it. Honestly, this series made it to my 'go to' pile. I have already re-read the previous books twice. I have loved them all. But I'm going to admit, I was a bit worried about how things would work out for Lucan. He was just one of those characters that you wanted to sit and hold his hand, listen to and offer support, until he figured things out. That's it, no spoilers here. The evil is bad and spreading. No one will be left unharmed. When a certain turn of events causes an unforgivable act, the Guardians will once again stand together. The help of the Dragons is welcomed, the Gods offer a bit of insight and the trust of the mate bond will be tested. Sabin, for all she has suffered, remained a strong female throughout the story. Lucan, might just be a changed man. Might was the key word there. Sometimes when you expect characters to break, that is when they find their strength. It takes an amazing writer to do that. The epilogue, of course that was just enough to leave you wanting more. I loved this book. I can't wait for what's to come.
