*******SPOILERS*******

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

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.

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

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

Wie sich während des Romans herausstellt hat Yvettes Klientin und die Brüder Haven und Wes vieles gemeinsam.

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

I was the first one to read this in a buddy read I am doing of the series, so I am afraid of scaring off my partners from the series, but I really didn't enjoy the book. It was short, and very quick to get through, but it was all about sexual attraction and lust that got conveniently turned into love. The plot was almost laughably predictable, especially with the multiple betrayals thrown in, all having the same lust for power scheme. It got to the point where the plot became implausible, even f ...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

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.

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

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'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

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.

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

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.
