Valerie Twombly - Fatal Desire

Valerie Twombly - Fatal Desire 

Book #2 Guardians Series

Paranormal Romance

Date Published: March 12, 2014

Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. 
When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. 
Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more 
than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as 
his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom.
Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can 
only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love.
When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings 
burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at 
her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear 
her mothersaying, “It will give you nightmares.” She was right 
of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an 
adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She 
would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered 
the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of 
Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was 

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and 
put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of 
steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her 
time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German 
shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.

Fatal Desire (Guardians #2)Fatal Desire by Valerie Twombly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first started reading this, I didn't realize this was part of a series. I felt lost at first, as characters spoke of things in the other book. But if you move past it, this is actually a wonderful book. The only thing keeping this book from 5 stars is the editing. This book had a lot of errors in it. It doesn't fully keep you from enjoying the book. But it is slightly annoying.

I enjoyed Caleb a lot. I wanted to rip his clothes off of his back. There's just something hot about a Dragon shifter. Lileta is one lucky ass woman! Oh what it's like to be loved that much by someone you barely know! This story, regardless if you read the first one of not is so exciting. I love the power play and struggle throughout the book. It's such an interesting story. I'm actually going to go back and read book one!
