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...more

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...more
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...more

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...more

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...more
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

Yvette's past memories haunt her about her failure as a wife and to become a mother. Yvette foolishly hopes that Maya can reverse female vampires infertility. Maya tells Yvette there is no reason why female vampire can't get pregnant. Haven Montgomery has vast hatred of vampires ever since his mother's death and kidnapping of his baby sister twenty years ago. Haven and his younger brother Wesley have searched for their sister Katie. Haven is tasked with kidnapping a young woman being guarded by...more
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...more
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
3.5 stars

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...more

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...more

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...more

Grundidee der Handlung:
Yvette und Haven können verschiedener nicht sein und doch fühlen sie sich zueinander hingezogen. Durch die Entführung einer Hexe müssen sie zusammenhalten, um sich aus den Fängen von Bess zu befreien.
Wie sich während des Romans herausstellt hat Yvettes Klientin und die Brüder Haven und Wes vieles gemeinsam.
Yvettes Freunde und Kollegen der Scanguards können sie befreien, doch nun hängt alles davon ab Bess zu vernichten und das Gleichgewicht zwischen Hexen und Vampire wied...more

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
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!

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...more

Loved to finally get a female view. In the previous books, we found out about Yvette but I liked getting to know her past more. Loved the plot and storyline.

HOT!!!! SEXY!!!! AND heartwarming. This book is on fire. Yvette. We all met this tough as nails vamp woman in the first book and through the second and third we saw a little more into her. But we never know why she is the way she is until this book. Her story and what changed her from a sweet human woman into the badass female vamp is revealed here and made me love her even more. Scarred by the man in her past who left her because of something she couldn't control she's determind not to let tha...more

Yvette, a vampire for about 50 years, did not feel that she was a complete woman because she could not give birth. When she was a human she had two miscarriages and female vampires could not conceive. Her current assignment was to protect a young actress named Kimberley.

Haven was a human bounty hunter who killed ever vampire he came in contact with because a vampire had killed his mother and kidnapped his baby sister. His younger brother Wesley was being held by a witch. The witch would free We...more
Yvette's Haven is the 4th enstallment of Tina Folsom's "Scanguard Vampires" series. This is the first book of the series where the lead is female. This was a refreshing way to switch it up a bit. Yvette truly deserved her own book. She's been through a lot both as a human and since the change. Her heartbreak earlier on in the series is just touch what she's been through.

In this book, we see her as more than just the soldier, the dutiful guard, we see her as a woman. If I had to look for a negat...more

Forced into abducting the young actress, Haven Montgomery sees killing a vampire as an added bonus but is forced to work with her when he is double-crossed. Can Yvette and Haven overcome their mutual animosity and will they give in to the mounting attraction between them?

Tina Folsom is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I'm so glad I found her. Her Scanguard Vampire series is one of the best out there. They're hot, sexy, erotic and her characters are characters you come to care about and love. Each and every book ties her characters together which I love. They all play a part in each story even though the main focus is on one couple. What I love so much is the bond and sense of family between them all. They're fierce and protective of their own.

Though Haven’s brother turns out to be more trouble than he is worth, a witch holds him hostage in exchange for him kidnapping an actress that is guarded by Yvette, a Scanguard vampire, unknown to Haven.

I love Tina Folsom's Scanguards Vampires series. The series is hot and sexy. As we're introduced to more Scanguards employees, I can't wait for each book.

As much as I love the series, Yvette's Haven fell flat for me. Yvette is a kick ass vamp who is used to being alone. She is standoffish and as of book 3, didn't like her co-worker's burgeoning relationships. I knew it would take a special kind of man to make Yvette let down her guard. Haven and Yvette first meet each other at a party where Yvet...more
Pre-read review: I must say that I am least interested in Yvette however I am looking forward to story.

Post-Read Review:
Going into reading Yvette’s story I was not too excited, being that I prefer most of my vampires to be guys however this was a nicely done twist to the series. Yvette was a very strong minded heroine who was also a woman. She had womanly needs and desires as any woman might have however due to her past circumstances she believed that most of those needs where beyond her reach....more

Yvette's longed for one thing in the years that she's been a vampire, to feel like a woman by being able to have a child. She feels like an utter failure because she was never able to carry a pregnancy to full term. To combat that feeling, she cuts her long lockes nightly, wears tight leather pants and stiletto shoes and never lets a man get the upper hand with her. Unfortunately, her upper hand goes away when she's kidnapped, along with the Hollywood starlet she was hired to protect.

Haven will...more

Yvette's Haven by Tina Folsom - awesome addition to the series. Again Folsom delivered, always giving more than you expected and providing an outstanding story.

Yvette. Yvette. Yvette. Did we ever think she would find love?

Sent to protect an upcoming movie star, Kimberly, after she becomes uncomfortable with Zane, (who'd have ever thought that?), Yvette escorts her to a premiere party. Making herself aware of her surroundings, Yvette meets a gorgeous man who entices her in more ways than one. Wha...more
This is, so far the best I have read in this series!
Really happy with the way the plot and twists were so entertaining!
Meet the fabulous characters:
Strong, independent, beautiful, loyal, stubborn.
I was fascinated by her. She wasn't as unemotional as she wanted everyone to believe.
Strong on the outside, on the inside she was emotionally scarred and didn't think she was good enough.
Ironically, it takes a ruggedly handsome vampire hunter to help heal her.
Damnnn... He is seductive.
