My Lord Eternity - Review

My Lord Eternity by Alexandria Ivy
Alexandra Ivy, author of the Guardians of Eternity series, draws readers deeper into the world of the Immortal Rogues--three vampires entrusted to protect the future of their kind...

To other vampires, mortals are weak, uninteresting creatures. To Lucien Valin, they are infinitely fascinating. Especially Jocelyn Kingly--once the prize of London society, now an outcast. As the vampire assigned to guard her, Lucien is relishing his task. But her beguiling goodness puts her in terrifying danger. Not just from the traitor intent on claiming her mysterious amulet, but from the desire Lucien struggles to keep in check.

Youthful infatuation already cost Jocelyn her good name. But even with little to lose, instinct tells her that accepting Lucien as a tenant in her home is a devil's bargain. As she roams London's streets at night, helping the most wretched, she feels a dark force drawing near. And Lucien--magnetic, charming, irresistible--may turn out to be her savior, her lover, or the means to change her destiny forever.

My Review
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review. Lucien has been assigned to watch lady Jocelyn. She has a powerful amulet and is in danger even if she doesn't realize it. She has no fear it seems as she has already been cast out of society and now spends her time helping those in need. She roams the night feeding orphans or lending a helping hand. She doesn't realize she is being hunted until people begin to turn up dead and clues lead to her. Lucien is a vampire and it's job to protect her. He must make sure she stays alive but where most vampires hate humans he seems to like them especially Jocelyn. They have to fight to stay alive and they might find something more to live for in the end.

Jocelyn is a fantastic character. Even if society and her family have thrown her to the curve she still does what she believes in and helps everyone she can. She doesn't care for titles and even though she has come from money she doesn't act that way. Her family has turned their back to her long ago and she moved on. She lives a lonely life and seems to prefer it. Lucien is a hotty vampire that tries his best to protect Jocelyn. She doesn't make it easy and he has to hide what he is from her. You can tell their is plenty of sparks between these two and they make a wonderful couple.

This story starts out great and doesn't stop being that way. As Jocelyn and Lucien try to help people and figure out just who is killing people and why. Lucien knows why but he can't say but he really isn't for sure who. It is a great book with lots of action and a great blend of historical romance and paranormal romance. I love how these two come together and it is so awesome. Jocelyn really shows her strength in the end as she does everything she can to save Lucien. I look forward to reading more in this series to see what the other guardians must face and see what kind of trouble they get into.
