Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall is an entertaining twist on vampire lore with immortals battling the vampires and attempting to protect humankind. I enjoyed the heroine, Sarah, who steps up and saves the life of Roland Warbrook when he is endangered by a band of vampires who seek to torture and kill him. She responds to danger by trying to figure out how she can protect herself better the next time...a sentiment that I wholeheartedly support...and her bloodthirsty response is perfect for her continued relationship with Roland. Nice twists in the story and plenty of room for additional tales, one of which has been released this month (Night Reigns) and should provide even more entertaining reading.
There are so many amazing book contests available this month...I'm on overload trying to keep up with them. Fresh Fiction has a nice Harlequin Historical giveaway at this link

These are only a few of the many fascinating contests...however, they are cutting into my reading time! Also, my thanks to Sharon Page for her lovely novella..Sinful. Review to follow in a day or so.
