SynopsisThe Guardians of Eternity are facing a final battle to save their world—but battles of the heart may be the most difficult to fight…

Cyn, the vampire clan chief of Ireland, is an unabashed hedonist whose beauty is surpassed only by his insatiable appetite for pleasure. It’s no wonder he’s furious when he’s transported from the magical land of the pureblooded feys to his desolate private lair—only to have his very existence thrown into a chaos that even he cannot charm his way out of…

Most women may be all but powerless against Cyn, but Fallon, a sharp-witted fairy princess, is less than beguiled by the silver-tongued vampire. She’s a serious soul with no time for the sort of games he plays—especially when they learn that someone is trying to close the veil that separates the dimensions. But seduction may prove the most powerful force of all, as attraction ignites between the unlikely pair even as worlds are colliding around them…

Review: Cyn is a self-confessed hedonist and proud of it. He doesn’t want to settle down or stop partying or stop indulging in all of life’s pleasures, so when a fairy princess and him end up dropped naked in caves under his lair and told by an oracle that they have to work together to stop the next evil plaguing their world, his reaction is to leave said princess alone in his caves. Princess Fallon has longed to experience life and Earth. Tired of living the submissive and pampered life at court she wants to live and make her own choices, so she jumps at the chance to help the oracles to discover who is trying to control the Commission even if that means working with the obnoxious but so gorgeous and arrogant vampire. They butt heads from the get-go. He can’t seem to see past her spoiled and pampered façade to see that she isn’t actually either of those things, but she can’t stop fantasizing about him. Cyn tries to ignore her presence in his lair while he works on his part of the puzzle but he can’t seem to stay away from her or stop worrying about her comfort. When pieces start to fall into place Cyn and Fallon also start to spend more time together. When Cyn is nearly killed by the villain Fallon rushes to save him, which leads to her royal fiancé finding out where she is. Cyn hates Magnus on site and when Magnus forces Fallon to break the engagement Cyn doesn’t stop long enough to think, he just wants to claim her for his own. As they fight along side each other, Fallon fights to be independent and for Cyn to accept that she wants to have the choice as to who she spends her life with. Cyn comes to realize that she is his mate but he knows he can’t stake a claim on her, not after all that her father and ex-fiance put her through. But he will not stop trying to prove to her that he is the best choice and that she is safe with him. I loved the story and their character development. Their interactions on the page were great to watch. The plot was strong and the conflict developed at a good pace. I enjoyed the side plot with Magnus and Tonya too. I looked forward to their page time. Overall great story and a wonderful romance.
