Music Theory Professor Sarah Bingham wants nothing more than to relax after a long, stressful spring semester. Instead, when insomnia drives her to spend a little time in her garden at dawn, she finds a wounded man staked to the ground, being tortured by two others. Little does she know when she rescues him that Roland Warbrook is far more than a man. Nearly a millennium old, he is an immortal who has acquired a new formidable foe amongst the vampires he hunts, a foe who has raised an army to defeat him and to destroy the rest of the Immortal Guardians. When Sarah thwarts the vampires by saving Roland, she too becomes targeted by the army and is thrust to the forefront of the conflict, aiding the immortals in their quest to defeat the vampires and losing her heart to the dark enigmatic warrior intent on protecting her.
“Beautiful, brave, and possessed of violent tendencies. I like her.”Marcus
“Roland struggled to pay attention while he steadily forced the spike out of the ground. He hadn't felt this weak since ... well, since before he had been transformed over nine centuries ago.”
“I'm okay. It's just been a very ... nerve-racking morning." "And it isn't even 7 a.m.”Sarah and Roland
“Arghhhhhhhh! What the hell happened to my car?”Marcus
“I think you're wrong." "Why, because you know her so well?" "No, because you're so distraught over her injuries and her potential fear of you that you've missed something pertinent I have not." "And what might that be?" "She's been awake ever since you laid her on the sofa and she has not run for the door.”Marcus and Roland
“Um, hi?" "Why aren't you screaming?”Sarah and Roland
“She wouldn't let him? She, a five-foot-one-inch, ninety-nine-pounds mortal female, wouldn't let him, a six-foot-two-inch immortal sporting two hundred pounds muscles - Oh, screw it.”Roland
“How did everyone else pass themselves off as federal agents so easily when Roland couldn't make it fly worth a crap?”Roland
“Okay, clearly Seth had never had the flu.”Sarah
