This Book was Awesome!!!!!!! It was Sexy, and Exciting, and funny as hell. I laughed so hard.
"Ah Hell. You mean this wasn't a butt call?" " Booty call, Ethan I believe the term is booty call. Honestly, I'm a hundred and thirty years older than you and from France. How can I be more familiar with American slang than you are? You were born here"
"And you are supposed to be serving as guard. Seven Vampires live across the hallway. What are you going to ...more
This book! *Sigh*
I’ve been burned out on paranormal romances for a while, but this series has been a very pleasant surprise. I’ve especially enjoyed listening to Kirsten Potter’s fabulous audiobook narration because she gives all the characters distinctive voices and does a great job with the various accents. I’ve liked all the books in the series, but so far, this is my absolute favorite. I loved it!
I loved Zach and Lisette! Lisette is a strong, kickass heroine ...more
Night Unbound provides a hot and steamy building romance between a much loved Guardian and sister, Lisette, and an unknown outcast/enemy of the Guardians, Zach. Mistrust is seeded and grows rapidly, threatening the core of the Guardian's family.

Not sure how to rate this since I have not read the previous books in the series, so I'm giving it a 3.5.
I would say this can be a stand alone since the author did a pretty good job catching me up on what I missed in the other books, but I still feel like I didn't have a connection to the secondary characters. This I believe stems from not reading the others. So I suppose it's safe to say that it is best to read them in order, but not necessary.
The story over all was good and I enjoyed the roma ...more

Lisette is a badass Immortal Guardian. Like others of her kind, she has been infected with the virus that causes vampirism but her advanced DNA instead mutated her into an immortal badass – able to protect the human population from crazy, sadistic, every day vampi ...more
NIGHT UNBOUND is the first installment in Dianne Duvall’s IMMORTAL GUARDIANS series that revolved around a female character, and although Lisette & Zach’s tale was undoubtedly passionate, it didn’t quite measure up to its male counterparts. Some major questions get answered with regards to the main story arc, and there’s no shortage of action or romance, but I failed to connect with the protagonists which caused the love scenes to lack chemistry. After four a ...more
I really enjoyed this new addition to the series and loved seeing Lisette and Zach get together. The series is great and I've been anxiously waiting to see how things continue in the overall series storyline and I wasn't disappointed.
Lisette has been an Immortal for around 200 years. In this world, vampires are nuts and kill mortals pretty much indiscriminately. Immortals are a breed that’s slightly different from vampires in that they don't go nuts and they hunt the vampires in an ef ...more
A paranormal must have of epic proportions. I’ve been smitten with Dianne’s characters and her Immortal Guardian world since the first book in the series, but this story took everything I like about it and super-sized it.
Night Unbound took my heart through the emotional paces. From hilarity
“You mean this wasn’t a butt call?”
“Do you have something against shirts?” His eyes dropped to Zach’s bare chest.
To blazing sensuality that turned my blood to molten lava
This time around, it’s Lisette, the Immortal Guardian from France, that’s the focus of the book. She’s b ...more

I was a little nervous about this on just because Lisette and Zach were both immortals.. well Zach isn't technically an immortal but I was just afraid that there wasn't going to be that tension between them like there have been with all the other immortal couples. And then the added tension with turning them. I always loved that. But honestly this book did not need that tension at ...more
First listened to September 2, 2014. Zach and Lisette’s love story. And in this one I can truthfully tell you I had forgotten who was giving the super soldiers/super vamps the serum that could knock the Immortal Guardians out. It was like reading a new mystery.
And I love the way Lisette met Zach and then how he disappeared for 4 months, only for her to get him back when he dropped onto her roof then fell off it into her back yard, beat all to hell and his wings full of broken bo ...more

I can't tell you how much I love this book. I'm just
This book came out last September and still it amazes me. I just love it.
Especially Zach. Since the first time we got to know Zach, I was intrigued. Who is this strange, quiet, winged man and what is his role in this series? Those were the questions I were left with after reading Darkness Rising (link to GR) and I really, really hope we would see him again in Nig ...more
Loved the hero in this one!
Night Unbound is the 5th book in the Immortal Guardians series by Dianne Duvall. It’s an ongoing paranormal romance series, with each book showcasing a new hero and heroine in a complete story. I really liked Night Unbound. It drew me in completely, the story, the romance and the characters. By the time I finished reading I was invested in the story and the characters, not just the main characters but all of them. I love when that happens.
Night Unbound is a s ...more

"I just can't give that up without seeing where it can lead me. It's too rare. Too precious."
"Because I've lived for over two hundred years and haven't felt this alive, this eager to greet each new night, since I was mortal. You make me feel things I never thought I would again, Zach."
"Now take me in your arms and make me forget the cold."
"I think I would l would lay waste to the world if I lost you."
"But you've given me hope."

-A lot of questions were answered about The Others for me and of course added more.
-Cliff is becoming way too important to me. I get upset at the thought of his future.
-I enjoyed all of the moments between Zack and Seth.
-Lisette and her brothers interactions were precious and at times hilarious.
I have to say I’m enjoying these. It’s not the greatest series but it is pleasurable and just right for easy summer reading ...more

With every book in this series, I become more of a fan! My fangirling can be a good thing or a bad thing. Why? Because I expect more from the author. The dialogue has to be crisper, the romance hotter, the world-building that much stronger. Thank goodness NIGHT UNBOUND did not disappoint.
Gosh, I love these characters. Each has their own flare and style, each their own flaws and desires. Zach, what can I say! He’s one hell of an awesome alpha male! And Lisette? Well, she’s in a class a ...more

Such a fabulous addiction to the series!
We've been aware of Zach for a few books now and getting to know him has given us a bit of info on the mysterious "Others". They had a presence in the series arc for a while now and I'm happy that they are starting to get more page time. Like I said, I find them mysterious. But back to Zach....
When Zach first appeared in the series I didn't quite know what to make of him. I didn't know if he had nefa ...more

(Bastien)"Chase them down bare-ass naked and give the human guards an eyeful.”
"I don't know about you," one of the new vamps said in his room, "but I'm pretty sure even a total mind-fuck madness wouldn't make me risk that guy chasing me down and tackling me while he's naked and has a hard-on."
Bastien and Seth both laughed.
"What?" Chris asked unable to hear the vamps.”
