About The Book:
Title: THE GUARDIAN (The Cities Below, #5)
Author: Jen Colly
Pub. Date: October 11, 2022
Publisher: Jen Colly
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Prepared to die…fighting to live.
Savard was in a mood to die, but when a human insists on saving his life, death is no
longer an immediate option. He knew of no species – human, vampire, or demon –
that could see him while in his invisible Spirit form. Unique to this world, this woman’s singularity was a danger to the entire vampire race.
Waking behind bars in an underground vampire city was not how Sera envisioned her
night drive ending. She has come to expect nothing from those who pass through
her life, but this man, dying on the side of the road, proves to be different.
Savard fights to free her from tyrannical vampire laws and to hide her unique
abilities. What Sera doesn’t understand, is why he would fight his growing love for her.
Savard’s haunted past threatens to tear them apart. Soon, Sera discovers just how far her guardian is willing to go, and what he’s willing to do, to keep her safe.
Savard watched her delicate jaw drop at the sight of his
fangs. Never in his long life had he shown a human what kind of creature lurked
behind the visage of a man. He waited for her scream, expected her terrified
flight or even a fainting spell. Instead of acting like a normal human, she
just sat there, taking it all in, processing, and then out of the blue, the
minx slugged him in the shoulder.
He groaned, not so much from her punch, but from stabilizing
his core muscles to keep his body upright. Through gritted teeth, Savard asked,
“What the hell was that for?”
“Give it a guess,” she huffed, not frightened, and certainly
not shying away. “You can speak. Just say what you are. You didn’t need to
threaten me with the pointy teeth.”
“Wasn’t a threat…won’t bite,” he mumbled. He knew he was
behaving poorly, but his body ached, his hunger beat a heavy cadence against
his tongue, and this woman had ruined his plans for a quick death.
His eyelids drifted shut, his head tilted back against the
cushion. He was getting worse. The pain was there, but not exactly
excruciating, making it easier to speak. His body was numbing out, going cold
on the inside. Sensation was slipping away, along with life.
“If you’re what I think you are, then…” her soft voice
trailed off, as if redirecting her question. “What can I do? Be honest.”
“Nothing you’d be willing to do,” Savard said, cracking one
eye open to observe her reaction, and when she shifted closer, he suddenly
realized she still held his hand. In fact, her grip had never wavered. Even
after he’d bared his fangs.
“Like letting you bite me? How can you be sure I wouldn’t?”
“I’m not asking.”
“But if it would help you…” Her delicate eyebrows scrunched
together, and she asked in earnest, “Would it help you? And would it hurt?”
His lips twitched, the beginnings of a smile that never fully
formed. For some reason, he found explaining the nuances of a vampire’s bite to
this innocent human amusing. “Blood heals. A bite is more pleasure than pain.”
“I wouldn’t turn into a…”
“When you bite someone…” Her voice was hesitant, the first
subtle hint of trepidation he’d found in her. “Do they die?”
“No. Life is precious,” he said quietly.
Deafening silence surrounded him and he closed his eyes
again, the calm lulling him. Several minutes passed, or perhaps more, and then
he unexpectedly caught her scent. The soft, delicate flesh of this woman had a
scent all its own, and he opened his eyes to see her leaning close to him, her
hand pulling that fluffy white-blonde mass of randomly braided hair away from
her neck. Savard growled, closing his eyes against the temptation, and turned
away from her.
“Why not?” she asked, her steady voice sending shivers
through his battered body.
Teeth clenched, he said, “You
should have left me there.”
