Phantom Shadows by Dianne Duvall
Sebastian Newcomb, black sheep of the Immortals, doesn’t need anyone. He doesn’t want to be part of the Immortals. He doesn’t want anyone to care for him or he care for anyone else…except it’s hard to stay so cold when she is so warm.
Publisher’s Description: Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it’s not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire . . .
Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different — and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question — he can’t put her in danger. But she isn’t asking him . . .
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
First off, I wasn’t particularly impressed with this book. Why? Well, it didn’t really hold my attention. The narrator was good, but the plot of the book was mostly sex, killing and more sex.
I like my romance books, really I do, but this one felt very one dimensional. Very flat. I don’t know why it felt this way to me, but there you have it. Maybe because there was a lot of sex. There was more killing than a Rambo movie. And that’s about it. The plot was basically searching for the bad guy who was threatening the Immortal Guardians and then slashing and shooting everything else in sight. Now, I don’t want to offend any of those that like the Immortal Guardians series, because everyone has their own tastes. Thank the book creators for that! I was looking for a series that I could really get into and read from #1 to #end. This one really isn’t it. I skipped book two and really didn’t miss anything much I couldn’t figure out in #3. I’m going to skip #4 and try #5 one of these days, just in case it was just the character. We’ll see. I’ll report in.
