When the Guardian’s homeworld was invaded by Nightmares, they were forced to flee into a conduit plane, the Twilight, between their dimension and that of the human’s. The Nightmares are a race of shadowy parasites that the Elite Warriors, like Connor Bruce, continue to battle. When Connor suspects that the Elders can no longer be trusted, he and his team make plans for him to hop a stream into the human world by using a Medium to do it. There he’ll meet up with Aidan Cross who left the Twilight to live with the woman he loves. Lyssa also happens to be special, the one they call the Key, and her survival is essential.

Arriving at Aidan and Lyssa’s home, Connor meets their friend Stacey who is house sitting while they are away. Stacey works at Lyssa’s veterinary practice and is a single mother. Her son is away on a ski trip with his father, and while she usually makes the worst choices in men like her ex, she can’t help the instant attraction to Conner. As the danger grows around them, Conner must share the truth about himself, putting Stacey further into harms way. Now Conner will not only have to continue his mission, but protect Stacey and her family at all costs. The Elders are looking after their own best interests and continuing to grow in power, anyone who crosses them is expendable.

Heat of the Night is the second book in the Dream Guardians series. Stacey has had enough trouble with men to last her a lifetime, but meeting Connor slowly melts the wall that she has erected to protect herself. Connor has lived for centuries and never had an interest in settling down, but meeting Stacey has made him crave what he’s always denied himself before. Ms. Day knows how to spin a tantalizing tale and in this intriguing fantasy world she easily captures the reader’s attention. Action, suspense and love are just some of the elements that make this book sizzle. A sexy warrior, a willing woman, and their scorching sexual encounters will leave readers looking forward to their next steamy visit with the Dream Guardians.

Wow that was fast! You don't read more then one book at once right? I dont recognize the name of the author that is next in your pile. Hmmm, will have to look them up.

Great review as always! :)

When I'm reading from my personal TBR stack I sometimes read more than one, but when I'm reading for review I only read one at a time. :) That next one is a vampire YA that the publicist sent me, along with a few others that I'll be getting to soon I hope.

Thanks! :)
