He Would Do Anything to Claim Her

Salvatore Giuliani is not a happy werewolf. It's his duty as leader to track down the pure-blood females who can keep his people from extinction. But the moment he catches scent of Harley, a pure-blood 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 findi

Still arrogant, but oh so sexy, Salvatore finally gets his queen

Werewolf King Salvatore Guiliani is on the hunt, he's scented a pureblood were female and strongly suspects that it's one of the remaining genetically altered females who were supposed to mean salvation for his declining race. Having already lost two of the four sisters to the dirty bloodsucking vamps, Salvatore is amazed to discover that this one is 'his Queen'.

Harley has been told for years that Salvatore is the bogey man who kil

I think I reviewed this one, and goodreads must not have saved it. I read this book a while ago, so this review may not be as in depth as some of my others, but here goes.
We met salvatore earlier in the series, and he was the bad guy. progressively we realized that he was actually just trying to save the werewolves. They have Purebreds and Curs (made werewolves). They have had trouble with females not being able to control their shifts throughout the full moon, where they used to be able to stay

This is the first book in this series that I have wrote a review on, this is another one of my top vampire/shape-shifter series. Every book in this series is full of humor, adventure, romance, hot sexy vampires/shape-shifters, Strong heroine‘s, suspense, excitement, and hot sex, to put the cherry on top! As in all of Ivy’s books she brings all of her characters back around, so you never miss out on any of them.

There is a three foot Gargoyle named Levet, he appears in every book. Every hero in th
A while ago, I started to read the first book in the guardians of eternity series from Alexandra Ivy. For some reason, it didn't catch my attention at that time, and I read a bit before putting it back into my TBR pile. That was my only experience with one of her books, until I read the synopsis for Beyond the Darkness and decided that I had to have it. I was glad I did, because it was a great book.

Salvatore Guiliani is the not just a were, he is the king. The strongest, fastest, and most ruthle
Jessica Hatfield
Great story I love that you get to watch Salvatore change from kind of a user jerk when it comes to ladies to a sweet and sexy man that only wants one woman! I like that Harley is Kick butt and isn't stupid and always running head first into trouble. The story line is great. And I love love that at the end they are pregnant with 5 babies so cute.............
Both the hero and heroine drove me nuts. The heroine was bitchy and annoying, the hero was arrogant and sure got beat up a lot for being the King of Weres. Okay story, not exactly the strongest book in this mediocre series that is kind of forgettable.

"Beyond eternity."

Ga sia2 kepincut ama si Salvatore, keren bingits deh Raja WERE yg satu ini !!! Sekseeeeh !

Ceritanya jg intense dr awal, Selain intense adegan kejar2an dan laganya, juga intense adegan panas membaranya antara si Salvatore dan Harley, tiada kesempatan tanpa uhuk2 tp itu setelah 50%.

Akhir buku ini jg menyisakan beberapa pertanyaan ~ yg gw tau bakal di ungkap juga sih di buku2 selanjutnya...

Wow! I was so pleasantly surprised with this author and this book. This was my first experience reading a book by Alexandra Ivy. Although I decided to start with book #6 in the series, the storyline interested me enough to take a chance on the book without reading the first 5 in the series. I think I might have found a new series to read.

There is a problem facing the Weres, they are going extinct. Full blooded female Weres can no longer control their shift during a full moon causing them to lose their litters. It has even been decades since the last time a Cur (bitten human) was made. Salvatore Giuliani, King of Weres, will do anything to save his people. Years ago his scientists created four genetically altered female babies who could not shift but the babies were taken without a trace. 30 years later while chasing his enemy Sa ...more

Wow ! Akhirnya, pencarian dan penantian panjang Salvatore si Raja Were membuahkan hasil. Kembar ke 3 dari kembar 4 yang diharapkan meneruskan garis keturunan pureblood , Harley , di temukan.Dari pertama bertemu, mereka sudah merasakan kekuatan ikatan berpasangan yang menarik-narik mereka untuk terus bersama, walaupun mati-matian Harley berusaha menyangkal ketertarikannya kepada Raja Were yang super ganteng itu.

Harley mau tidak mau akhirnya ikut terseret dalam pertarungan Salvatore dengan Briggs,
This was my first Guradian's of Eternity book. Honestly, the descriptions and reviews of the earlier books didn't interest me, but this one did. Especially that cover.

It turned out to be a strong PNR novel. I didn't find it challenging at all having missed out on the first five books. That being said, plenty of old friends do appear enough and play a role in the story to satisfy series lovers.

It was very typically PNR. The begining was meh. After reading soo many PNR series it is really challe

OH man. I have been waiting for Salvatore since Styx's story. This one is super drool worthy. HOT HOT HOT! I just imagine him as Alcide Herveaux from True Blood. Can you say schmexy??!!

Anyways, another wonderful fast pace story full of twist and turns! Although, I wish this was more of Salvatore's story rather than Harley's POV. Seems like Salvatore has come a loooooonnnnngg way and i mean a super LOOOONNNNNGGG way from his ultimate goal. However, not once did the story disappoint. Harley

Another hit for Ms Ivy! Salvatore Giuliani is the PISSED OFF ruling Were King and he thinks he is all that! He just has to find his mate and make some little Giuliani! What woman would not want him? Harley, that who! Harley is a rare pure blood were and she is so sick of bossy, controlling men and that goes double for ALL Weres! She doesn't want to have an ARROGANT King in her universe! She is not a puppy machine! Salvatore just wants to have her over , under or beside him and neve

Love the action and world Ms. Ivy has created in her Guardians of Eternity series.

Beyond the Darkness is book six in Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series. Ms. Ivy does not disappoint she knows how to pull her audience in and keep us entertained, with a strong plot, action, adventure, and just the right amount of romance.

We are taking on a fast paced action packed adventure and learn more about the Weres in this world. By the end I had a better understand of the Were

C’est donc au tour de la 3ème des quadruplée de passer à la trappe et qui mieux que Salvatore pour faire les yeux doux à la belle. Après tout il a passer 30 ans à la chercher et a tout fait pour changer son ADN ! Mais bon, pas sûre que ça suffise pour séduire cette garou au caractère bien trempé…

Harley est donc une des sœurs de Darcy et de Regan, celle des 4 qui a été élevé par Caine en personne. Pendant toute sa vie elle a cru que ses sœurs étaient mortes et que c’était Salvatore qui les avait

"Another exciting book in the series! Not to be missed!"

I really love Alexandra Ivy's writing! Her prose flows like smooth, warm honey, the kind you'll never get enough of. I know I've said something to that effect before, but I witnessed it again in this story and in Embrace the Darkness, which I've read but haven't yet written the review.

I have to admit that when I was reading Darkness Unleashed (Jagr's story), I hadn't liked Salvatore Giuliani, King of the Weres, tha
Being the 6th book in the series, it was still entertaining. I do enjoy this series and (if I can find the time) will start the next one soon.
I only had 2 issues with the book.
1st The heroine was strong - maybe too strong...there were times I found Harley annoying.
2nd The dialogue between the two main characters was mainly sexual jokes/friendly banter. They rarely made it through a page without some joke or smart ass comment. They never really seemed to have a real conversation. It was funny an

In the sixth installment of Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series we have Salvatore’s story. Salvatore Giuliani is the King of all Weres, and has recently relocated to the States from Spain in search of four purebred Were females that were abducted from his care decades ago. We’ve now met three of the quadruplets in this series; Darcy, who is mated to Styx, and Regan, who is mated to Yagr. Salvatore’s love interest is Harley, and she’s been raised by a cur named Caine.

Great read - paranormal romance with a lot of action. Salvatore the King of the Werewolves finally gets a girl... [If you've been keeping up with the series, you know he has tried twice before only to be cut out by vampires.:] There's a big difference here - this time he really wants her! A true werewolf mating hasn't occurred in centuries but something is rolling back the clock for Salvatore and his heroine, Harley. Since Harley has been raised to believe Salvatore would kill her and had alread ...more
Salvatore Giuliani, King of the Weres, finally gets his stubborn, fiery match - Harley. In the previous books, we see how arrogant Salvatore is and the lengths he goes through in order to ensure the survival of his clan. We got the backstory of the four Were pureblood sisters - Darcy and Regan who found their mates - who were separated at birth. Harley is one of the sisters and ultimately the Queen of the Weres.

Beyond the Darkness ของอเล็กซานดรา ไอวี

เผลอแป๊บเดียวค่ะ เล่มนี้ก็เป็นเล่มที่หกในชุด Guardians of Eternity แล้วล่ะค่ะ ตลอดทั้งห้าเล่มที่ผ่านมา อเล็กซานดรา ไอวีคนเขียนได้สร้างสรรเรื่องราวเกี่ยวกับสิ่งมีชีวิตเหนือธรรมชาติได้อย่างน่าอ่าน ความเป็นชุดที่ไม่ถึงกับผูกกันติดแน่นเกินไป ทำให้เราไม่รู้สึกถึงการบังคับที่จะต้องอ่าน แต่ทำให้เป็นการอ่านที่ราบรื่นและมีความสุข

I can't believe I kept putting off Salvatore's book. I thought it wouldn't be all that great as Salvatore was a jerk in the previous books and I hadn't really seen his character change so wasn't quite sure how he'd get his own HEA but he really managed it.

Salvatore Giuliani, King of Werewolves had been taken prisoner by some rogue curs but he has just been rescured by Tane, a vampire (and to the werewolves a leech and not to be trusted) but Tane has left Salvatore and Levit so he can find the Jinn Demon who should not be alive. Salvatore decides to travel on to find the cur who kidnapped him and in the process he meets Harley (one of his full blood, specially bred werewolves, who was kidnapped at birth along with her sisters).

I swear Alexandra Ivy never lets me down with her books. I seriously have not found one of her books in her Guardians of eternity series that I just did not like. I loved Salvatore and Harley. They were perfect for each other in my opinion. This book made me laugh a couple of times at Levet the lil gargoyle pain in the butt lol and Salvatore's personality. I have to say that I was not looking forward to read about Salvatore at first only because in the other books Alexandra didn't really focus o ...more
This series is really a guilty pleasure for me. There's nothing that spectacular about it, but you are definitely guaranteed an action packed book with lots of romance and intense sexual encounters.

In this book, Salvatore is looking for Harley a pureblood were. If you remember, he found her sister Darcy in one of the previous books. What Salvatore doesn't expect is to find that Harley isn't exactly a "prisoner" and she has some skewed ideas about her past. Harley doesn't want any man telling he

“A near half hour passed as Salvatore weaved his way through the winding tunnel, his steps slowing as he tilted back his head to sniff the air.
The scent of cur was still strong, but he was beginning to pick up the distant scent of other curs, and…pure-blood.
Female pureblood.
Coming to a sharp halt, Salvatore savored the rich vanilla aroma that filled his senses.
He loved the smell of women. Hell, he loved women.
But this was different.
It was intoxicating.
“Cristo,” he breathed, his blood racing, an odd tightness coiling through his body, slowly draining his strength.
Almost as if…
No. It wasn’t possible.
There hadn’t been a true Were mating for centuries.
“Curs,” Levet said, moving to his side. “And a female pureblood.”
“Si,” Salvatore muttered, distracted.
“You think it’s a trap?”
Salvatore swallowed a grim laugh. Hell, he hoped it was a trap. The alternative was enough to send any intelligent Were howling into the night.
“There’s only one way to find out.”
He moved forward, sensing the end of the tunnel just yards in front of him.
“Salvatore?” Levet tugged on his pants.
Salvatore shook him off. “What?”
“You smell funny. Mon Dieu, are you…”
With blinding speed, Salvatore grasped the gargoyle by one stunted horn and yanked him off his feet to glare into his ugly face. Until that moment, he hadn’t noticed the musky scent that clung to his skin.
“One more word and you lose that tongue,” he snarled.
“Do not screw with me.”
“I do not intend to screw with anyone.” The gargoyle curled his lips in a mocking smile. “I am not the one in heat.”
