Book Description

He Would Do Anything To Claim Her

Salvatore Giuliani is not a happy werewolf. It's his duty as leader to track down the pureblood females who can keep his people from extinction. But the moment he catches scent of Harley, a pureblood held by a pack of mangy curs, his savage need for her obliterates all other instincts. And the only thing worse than being captured is finding that beautiful, independent Harley defiantly refuses to become his mate.

And Everything To Keep Her

Harley has been taught to distrust all Weres, especially their arrogant king. She won't be used for breeding or bonded against her will, not even to a man who makes every nerve tingle with awareness. Yet Salvatore is her key to saving the family she never knew she had--if she dares to succumb to his dark, predatory desire, and face a vicious enemy sworn to destroy them both. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars for Beyond the Darkness Delight April 2, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I admit, I believe the Guardians of Eternity series hasn't quite reached the level of exceptional paranormal romance (yet). I think it's a very solid and satisfying paranormal romance series - with a slight issue here and there. There doesn't seem to be a lot that differentiates and individualizes the lead romantic pairing in each book in either character development or the formula of the evolving romance, and I believe that is what separates the solid and satisfying from the exceptional. I've long been a huge fan of paranormal romance novels and series, though, so I have a pretty high tolerance for that lack of differentiation and individualization. It's a common malady in the paranormal romance series sub-genre. That being said, there are some series, like Christine Feehan's Carpathians, that I stopped reading a long time ago because the formula got to be too much, the characters too interchangeable, the women too often somehow lesser than their mates. I'm taking a break (and have been since Acheron) from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series for similar reasons.

I'm still reading Alexander Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series. Why? Because it's still giving me exactly what I like in my paranormal romance novels. An uberalpha male and a strong, independent female that lock heads, fangs, fists AND wits, humor, and charm to create an explosive chemistry that works for me quite nicely. There's also the characters from previous novels that get tossed into the mix, and I love seeing the continuing development there.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than the last April 1, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was so much better than the last installment of the guardians of eternity. I've been a secret Salvatore fan for a while now so they may have played a part in it. The king of the werewolves has been a good or bad guy depending on the circumstances and I've been intrigued with him. In Beyond the Darkness Salvatore catches up with one of the missing quad she wolves that he has been searching for. Harley is the third female that could be the savior/breeder the werewolves have been waiting for. In the beginning Salvatore is full of arrogance thinking that he will have Harley for himself after he explains that he is not out to kill her. Too bad Harley has been raised by Caine who stole her as an infant and has brainwashed her into thinking that the King of the Were's will kill her on sight.

Harley has never been around other weres and allows curiousity to over rule good judgement by visiting Salvatore's jail cell. Without revealing any spoilers the two end up together on the run and the story is on. The Anasso and Darcy show up as well as Abby and Dante. This story overlaps Darkness Unleashed since there is mention of Jagr after Regan but not that he has caught her. Levet obviously is here with an appearance as well but no where near as annoying as before.He was almost his endearing self again. This was really good and I loved watching the love develop between Salvatore and Harley. We're given some tidbits about why the female quads were kidnapped as babies and the plot reveals information that ties up some of the questions on previous books. More info on Tane the asian vampire assasin as well as his possible hea with a djinn and then a pivotal scene about Caine and maybe the final female pureblood wolf being discovered.

Ivy did a fantastic job with this Alpha and Harley is worthy of being Queen of the Weres.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Romance April 5, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have all of this author's books and I have enjoyed each of them. I really didn't like the "King of the Weres", Salvatore Giuliani. However, this book changed my mind about him and I liked the romance. He was so arrogant in the other books that I thought he was not a likeable person. Now however, Harley, his mate brings him down to earth. The romance is good the supernatural aspect is excellent and I recommend this one, if you liked her other novels.

Harley is one of the babies stolen from the weres. She is one of four born without the ability to change. Therefore she will be able to carry her babies to term. She doesn't know this as she has been held her whole life by a group of curs. These are weres who were bitten instead of born. Salvatore finally finds her and rescues her from the curs. But Harley has been held to long and now she wants her freedom.

Salvatore has hunted the babies, one of whom he plans to make his Queen, for 30 years. When he finds Harley he finds more than he bargained for, there has not been a true were mateing in many, many, years. So it is hard for him to accept that he and Harley are true mates. The fact that his powers are weakened by her nearness, and the musk that now permeates his skin, finally convince him that he must quickly make her his mate.

The identity of the true evil that is killing the packs and draining their power is finally revealed. This power is now determined to kill Salvatore and take his place. The action is fast, the romance hot and I love these stories.

There are as usual a few secondary characters that you know will be in the next novel and leave you wanting more.

More About the Author

I began my career in 2000 under the name Debbie Raleigh, writing traditional regencies and now as Deborah Raleigh writing regency historicals.

Moving to paranormals has been a dream since I watched my first episode of Buffy. I hope everyone enjoys the Guardians of Eternity series.
