Top Off Tuesday: Darkness Rises

"Every once in awhile there are covers that just make you say Oh My! Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is bad, and sometimes it is head scratching. The point of Top Off Tuesday is to show you the ones with their Tops Off! Seriously y’all hunting out Top Off Tuesday covers is one of my favorite pastimes and you should join the fun!" ~from the Geeky Blogger

My submission:
Darkness Rises
Immortal Guardians #4
by Dianne Duvall
Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple -- she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. 
Étienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years -- long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger, too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher...
 I will have a review and an author post/giveaway next week with a book by the author, but thought I'd feature it today since I won't be able to do that next week. Oh I do like it when the shirt accommodates and opens up for our shirtless pleasure. ;)

So, what is on your ToT?


  1. I love you always, Mel, but when you share almost naked dudes with us, I love you even more. What a way to start the day! :))

  2. I'm curious about your review! But thanks for sharing now though. I like that the shirt is partly open too. :)

  3. Why, thank you for unbuttoning your shirt and standing in a mind tunnel so we can admire your rippling abs, sir.


    (yes I meant all caps--this book is taking forever to land on the shelves)
