Book Description:

On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure who she truly is.

About the Author:

Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing for fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.

Review of Bodyguards by Kallysten

5 Stars
Reviewed for Full Moon Bites Blog Tours for Nov. 10

A rapid-paced, smooth, vividly imaged paranormal story with good characterizations and a twist on the conventional “Other Side”-is-Fae fantasy approach. There is an alternate world here, and it is one in which our protagonist Vivien experienced her unremembered childhood, but Virginia, it isn’t Fae. It’s vampiric, and the guards are hot and sexy. Vivien is an unexpected princess-unexpected to her, but we the readers could have guessed, because this chick is “entitled.” She gets irritated with her loving aunt who raised her, teed-off because a cute guy won’t date her (he turns out to be a Bodyguard and bound to her by the Quicksilver Code), is saved from kidnap and possible death by another hot guy, and then gets mad about that. Yes, “entitled.”
Luckily, Cute Guy #1 (even though he won’t date her) does manage to point her onto the right track.
For fans of Kallysten, and those who aren’t yet but will be, this is a great choice. Don’t miss it.
