The Keepers: L.A. Keeper of the Dawn

Heather Graham

ISBN: 9780373885732

LAPD police officer Mark Valiente dreams of marrying the woman he loves though he has never met her. Dreams aside, in the Starry Night Cemetery the vampire cop and his partner Brodie McKay break up a sacrificial ritual that includes humans and Others using elven females intended to bring back from the dead evil Sebastian Hildegarde. The leader and some Others escape, but Mark is more interested in the woman draped over Sebastian’s effigy. He recognizes her as his bride in his loving fantasy.

Mark plans to keep Alessande Salisbrooke safe as he fears she is marked by the Hildegarde followers. While he hunts the perpetrators, Alessande is of a different mindset as she says she will help him or go it alone.

The final Keepers: L.A. romantic urban fantasy (see Keeper of the Shadows by Alexandra Sokoloff, Keeper of the Night by Heather Graham and Keeper of the Moon by Harley Jane Kozak) is an exciting paranormal police procedural that completes the Gryffald cousins' saga. Fast-paced with taut twists and red herrings, readers will welcome the return of the previous leads as they assists the protagonists in keeping their women safe while bringing down the unknown main malevolence.
