Darkness Dawns- Dianne Duvall (book 1)

In this dazzling, sensual novel, Dianne Duvall beckons readers into a world of vampires, immortals, and humans with extraordinary gifts . . . where passion can last forever, if you're willing to pay the price . . .

Once, Sarah Bingham’s biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she’s landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control . . .
In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible -- when it mean forfeiting the world she’s always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.

Well this book starts right off with some action. Roland has been attacked and left to die out in the sun but Sarah helps him escape. We find out that the vampire Bastian is after Roland. You can feel the connection between Sarah and Roland. You also meet other immortals in this book. The oldest immortal Seth is hearing the cries of a female and is determined to find her. The story is great and the characters are very interesting. Will Bastian get rid of Roland? Will Sarah and Roland be able to be together even though Sarah is a human? And who is this mystery woman?
