Yvette's Haven is another great installment to the Scanguards series. I've never really been a fan of Yvette, but she and Haven won me over!
Jo ★The Book Sloth★

The 4th installment in the Scanguard Vampires series makes me once again believe that the author uses films and other books to get inspiration. Let me elaborate...

To begin with, we have our hero, his name Haven:

(Yeap...Gandy is always my go-to guy for dark haired-blue eyed heroes.)

After Haven watched his witch mother getting murdered and his sister kidnapped by a vampire he thought that Sarah Michelle Gellar wasn't up for the job anymore and decided to go all Buffy on their

Meet Haven:

(Oh, how I love this model)

Haven's life was destroyed by vampires as a child. His mother was killed, sister kidnapped and he had to raise his little brother on his own. So, he decided he wanted payback.

He becomes a vampire hunter, a male Buffy, if you will. His entire life is focused on finding his missing sister and killing every vampire he came across. And then his fuck up of a little brother is captured by a witch. The witch blackmails him into kidnapping a famous actress.

And so he

I really enjoyed this story. I hadn't liked Yvette that much but this book allowed her to be vulnerable, kind and smart as they tried to figure out who kidnapped Yvette, Kimberly, Haven and Wes. The chemistry between Yvette and Haven was great. It wasn't so sexually laden as the prior 3 books so I was thankful for that. I just wish there had been a way to resolve Yvette's most earnest desire--to be a mother.

Yvette was left reeling at the end of book 3 as she thought she loved Gabriel until he got together with Maya destroying any hope she had of having Gabriel herself. Whilst dealing with these feelings she is put on a job to protect Kimberley a young actress which is under threat by an unknown source. Whilst on this job she meets Haven and an instant lust attraction is felt by both.

Haven is a human vampire bounty hunter after his mother was killed and his sister kidnapped by a vampire 22 years ago

To be 100% honest, when I found out the next book in the series was going to be about Yvette I wasn’t sure if I would end up reading it. From the glimpses we got of Yvette prior to this book, she isn’t a character I thought deserved a full book. I mean; could she actually carry an entire story as the central character? No. Boy was I ever wrong!!!

My heart broke a little for Yvette, as in I cried. I wasn’t expecting to shed any tears while read this book. Yvette is the only female member of Scangu

Firstly I have to admit I love a vampire romance, and have enjoyed all of this series of books, and yes I enjoyed this book too, but for some reason I prefer the man to be a werewolf or vampire it's just sexier I think!

Onto this book, if you imagine angel as our hero Haven the vampire hunter, and buffy with dark hair as our Yvette one of scanguards vampire bodyguards.


Haven is put in a difficult position when his brother is kidnapped by a witch, and is told he will be freed if he kidnaps a young
Wonderful! I was somewhat disappointed in the last book, but this one reminded me of why I love this series. The H, Haven and h, Yvette were dynamite together and the story line brought some new life into the series. It was fun, and so hot to watch how these two characters, who hated each other, form a passionate and loving relationship. I really am hoping that she continues the series, so many of the other characters need their stories to be told. I missed Dr. Drake in this one, the vampire psy ...more
The Window Seat
Well, I am not really sure what to say. I didn't love this book in the Scanguards series, but since I didn't expect to, I can't say that I am all that disappointed.

Haven is the son of a witch. Together with his brother, he is searching for his missing sister who was kidnapped by vampires twenty two years ago. In addition to searching, his part time job includes getting his brother out of trouble. When Wesley gets kidnapped by a witch, Haven is forced to kidnap a young actress with a vampire body

So, mit dem vierten Band der Reihe bin ich nun erst einmal am Ende der verfügbaren Bände angekommen.
Den fünften Band gibt es schon auf Englisch, allerdings möchte ich auf Deutsch weiterlesen und somit heißt es warten (vermutlich bis November diesen Jahres).
Auch der vierte Band hat mir sehr gut gefallen, auch wenn er gefühlsmäßig für mich der schwächste aus der Reihe ist.
Irgendwie hat mich Yvette und auch Haven nicht so berührt, wie das die Personen in den vorrangegangenen Büchern getan haben – w

Book 4 featuring characters from the Scanguards vampire world, this is Yvette's story. Yvette is the only female Scanguards member in the inner circle, and while competent and certainly loyal, she's always come across as a bitch. She's distant, moody, unfriendly and we've not known why until now. Apparently she really wanted a baby when human, and after miscarrying twice, her husband left her. Now as a vamp she's sterile, and feels no man will want her. Oh silly Yvette, you just need to meet the ...more

If you've read the series to date, then you pretty much know what to expect; total opposites that don't expect or want to ever fall in love do, and need to overcome some major bad guy (with the help of the Scanguards crew) to be together. This is Yvette's story. I liked her and her "unexpected" love interest Haven. It's good to know the back story as to why Yvette is the tough personality that she is and how Haven was able to overcome his prejudices and get through to her. This book div

So, Tina took the human and made him her hottest one, yet.

Excuse me...

*Goes to change her panties. Again.*

Do you think I'm exaggerating? Pffftt. Yvette is the luckiest bitch. Haven was so sensual and straight to the point and just ungh.

Yes, his hatred and prejudice for vampires had me ready to climb into the books and strangle him at first. He does repent for his idiocy by the end of the book, as is to be expected.

This plot was even crazier and definitely better than any of the books before

As usual a great read from Ms Folsom. I love the Scanguards Vamps, and Yvette is no exception.
I did feel the writing was a bit different than the first books in this series. Even though Yvette is "one of the boys" working as a bodyguard along the men of Scanguards, this story brought out her femininity, in a lovely way. We find out a lot about Yvette in this story, and she meets her perfect mate,and even though they go through a lot together they get the perfect HEA. They are great together, an

Yvette's Haven is the fourth book of Scanguards Vampires series by Tina Folsom.

Favorite Quotes
"...Because I want to be sure that I'm not the only one who feels that this is more than just a quick jump in the sack... Because I want more from you." -Haven

"I fought all my life. I want to love now, because it's all that counts in the end. I want to love you and make you mine." -Haven
J'adore la série des Scanguards de Tina Folsom, c'est une série qui sort des sentiers traditionnels de la Bit lit et qui casse gentiment le mythe du vampire. J'aime le ton ironique qu'utilise l'auteure dans ses récits, le plaisir qu'elle prend à affubler ses héros d'une tare tellement incongrue pour cet être surnaturel que s'en est même risible, je me délecte de ses scènes intimes torrides et originales qui parsèment toujours à bon escient la relation souvent complexe des deux héros.

I will be the first to admit of all of the Scanguard Vampire characters, Yvette, has been my least favorite. She is just so hardcore, angry and unsympathetic; yet, in "Yvette's Haven" we get to see a personal side of the prickly character I could finally relate to.

Yvette has been charged with guarding an up and coming actress named, Kimberly for a week but little does she know Haven, the bounty hunter has been blackmailed into kidnapping her by a witch who is holding his brother, Wesl

This book was actually 4.5 stars for me. I am so surprised with how much I loved this book. I usually prefer my vampires to be men but I really fell for Yvette in this book. The sexual chemistry between Yvette and Haven was smoking hot. The story was very good. I liked how they brought the witches more into this book than in previous books. I actually got very connected to the two main characters in this book and I was very happy with how there HEA came about. I'm looking forward to reading Zane ...more

Scanguards Vampires #4
Yvette's Haven (Scanguards Vampires, #4) by Tina Folsom Yvette's Haven is the fourth book in the Scanguards Vampire Series. This book is about Yvette and Haven. This is my second time reading this book and I can quite honestly say that even though I mostly remembered what was going to happen, I enjoyed this book more this time through.

Tina Folsom is awesome at setting the stage, and sucking you into the story! I recommend this series to anyone who likes vampires!

Another 4 stars for me! Even though this series isn't necessarily unique in the paranormal romance genre i find it to be highly entertaining and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Like the 4 stars indicates..."i really liked it"...which is how i've felt reading every book in this series. I am definitely looking forward to future books and can't wait for Zane's book which apparently is up next!

J'ai beaucoup aimé découvrir les facettes cachées de la personnalité d'Yvette, ses conditions de femme et de vampire femelle au sein d'un groupe viril mais néanmoins pas si machiste que ça. Haven tient bien la route et même s'il est à priori moins fort qu'elle en tant qu'humain, elle n'a jamais tenté de le rabaisser....De plus, par son passé familiale, Haven ne souhaite pas avoir d'enfants, ce qui tombe bien vu qu'Yvette ne pourra jamais lui en donner (à par s'ils adoptent, évidemment !).

Alright, Yvette's Haven is Book 4 in Tina Folsom's Scanguards Vampires but I think that some of the previous books are better. Having said that, this was a pretty good read and I'm pretty sure that this can be read as a stand alone.

Yvette has had a small part in all of the previous books but not to worry because whatever was discovered about her in the previous books, we find out all over again in this book so no one is left behind. Mainly, we learned that she is a total badass and that she is c

I can't say enough good things about this book. Haven has spent his whole life hating and killing vampires. Until Yvette. Yvette is a character whose past we don't know anything about. They come together at cross purposes, but are forced to work together for a common goal. In doing so, Haven learns that everything he's been brought up to believe isn't necessarily true. Both Yvette and Haven overcome painful secrets of the past and bond quickly and passionately. Another book of love and healing. ...more

Another great book in the Scanguards series. I have to say I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Yvette was not shown in the best light in the last book and I had my concerns. I did come to love her though once understanding her situation and seeing her fall for Haven. Haven was great because even though he didn't always make the right choices, he never stopped trying to pertect his family. Now I can't wait to see what happens when Zane is brought to his knees and must face what all h ...more
