    Yvette's Haven is another great installment to the Scanguards series. I've never really been a fan of Yvette, but she and Haven won me over!

    *******SPOILERS*******The 4th installment in the Scanguard Vampires series makes me once again believe that the author uses films and other books to get inspiration. Let me elaborate...To begin with, we have our hero, his name Haven:(Yeap...Gandy is always my go-to guy for dark haired-blue eyed heroes.)After Haven watched his witch mother getting murdered and his sister kidnapped by a vampire he thought that Sarah Michelle Gellar wasn't up for the job anymore and decided to go all Buffy on their asses. Growing up prejudiced and full of hatred he became a bounty hunter without any qualms about killing vampires left and right until he crossed paths with Yvette and suddenly he began thinking with his smaller head(witch for once proves wiser)!Then we have our heroine, her name Yvette:(Aha, a younger Angelina is deffinitely what the author must have had in mind.)So Yvette is about 80 years old(human and vamp), she works at scanguards as a bodyguard and tries to pass for a tough cookie. She succeeds quite well in playing the "deadly playboy bunny" but she is all insecure and vulnerable inside. The moment she sets eyes on Haven she melts into a puddle. Well of course then he kidnaps her and her charge but who cares? The guy is hot after all.The story...One bad-evil witch kidnaps Haven's brother Wesley and in order to give him back she wants him to kidnap a young actress named Kimberly and bring her to her. Of course he has to kill the bodyguard first but after meeting Yvette he can't do it, so he kidnaps both of them. Later the witch betrays him and imprisons him along with all the others. They learn that Kimberly is Haven's and Wesley's sister and that together they form a threesome of witches supposed to be the most powerfull beings on earth called the Power of Three. Reminds you of something? Well it did remind me...And then we have revelations and emotions and betrayals, you know the usual deal.My problems with the book:a) The heroine was pathetic. At first she was petty and jealous of every woman who could have a kid, then she would go on and on that she isn't a real woman because she couldn't have one and stuff like this. I wanted to slap some sense into her... If all the women out there who cannot have children thought like this we would have many more suicides! And then she didn't want a child because she wanted to be a mother but because she wanted a man to love her. "NEWS FLASH lady, if a man doesn't want you as you are, he doesn't deserve you." Okay...Enough rambling!:pb) This time we didn't just have love at first sight. It was like love before even that, they confessed their undying love about a day after meeting. Come on people, a little more believable next time...c) Once again the story was predictable and worn... It had little new to offer.In general the book was pleasant enough, not impressive and not memorable, just something to pass the time. So 3.25 stars, maybe 3.5 at some points but I don't think that with the heroine it had I would give it a 4.(The last gif is a bonus because I loved the show, especially when Piper blew stuff up.)

    Meet Haven:(Oh, how I love this model)Haven's life was destroyed by vampires as a child. His mother was killed, sister kidnapped and he had to raise his little brother on his own. So, he decided he wanted payback.He becomes a vampire hunter, a male Buffy, if you will. His entire life is focused on finding his missing sister and killing every vampire he came across. And then his fuck up of a little brother is captured by a witch. The witch blackmails him into kidnapping a famous actress.And so he meets Yvette:He finds out she's a vampire and experiences a crisis of faith. Because he'd really like to bone that vampire.And Yvette would really like to bang him too.And they decided that a good time to do this would be while imprisoned by the witch that was blackmailing Haven. In the bathroom. With his brother in the next room.And so the story continues, it's discovered that the witch is after three siblings which, when gathered, bring about the 'power of three.' It grants ultimate power to a witch and would upset the balance of the supernatural community. What I liked about this book:- Haven. He actually had depth and he's pretty hot. His baggage was understandable - mean his childhood was lame. - Zane. His character really developed during this book. What I hated about this book:-Yvette. Her emotional baggage is beyond annoying, and she's fairly predictable. She had balls in the previous books, all of a sudden she became a whiny mess. Yeah sometimes guys leave, it's been 80 years, get over it!It's still a good book. You should read it.

    3.75 stars.I really enjoyed this story. I hadn't liked Yvette that much but this book allowed her to be vulnerable, kind and smart as they tried to figure out who kidnapped Yvette, Kimberly, Haven and Wes. The chemistry between Yvette and Haven was great. It wasn't so sexually laden as the prior 3 books so I was thankful for that. I just wish there had been a way to resolve Yvette's most earnest desire--to be a mother.

    Review to come. Reading this in a book 1-9 collection. Definitely had some editing issues.Read this inthis is a collection of ooks 1-9, I started this in book 2 since that's what my library has (yet they only have a 14 day check out period).Anyways I was surprised that this particular book had so many typos, you'd think it'd be easier to edit? I dunno but I did find out a bit disconcerting. Anyways in this book it's all about Yvette. She's the one who caused some problems from Gabriel in the last book as she had a crush or something on him. However, this time we delve deeper into what makes her tick. And what makes her tick and seem so hard on the outside is the complete devastation she had in her human life. We find out that (view spoiler)[ she was married and her and her husband were trying to have children. She miscarried 2x and hubby decided that SHE wasn't trying hard enough and basically divorced her. When really it's a number of things. Regardless this makes Yvette feel like "less than a woman" because she couldn't provide her spouse with the thing he wanted most. So she continues thinking that she won't be wanted since as a vampire she can't have children (supposedly, I still think this will happen). She believes that no man can want her because shes defective.(hide spoiler)] This line of thinking annoyed me to no end because those things do not make you not a woman or less than. Many people go through issues like that and some have more of those some occurrences. Anyways while I understand the reason behind her feelings they still annoyed me because Yvette puts on this strong personality.Then there is Haven and a bunch of circumstances that lead him to a life of hatred for vampires. Any vampire he comes across he will kill. And so the story begins with his brother getting into trouble and Haven doing something to bail him out for it only to backfire.I found some of the plot interesting and I was surprised by some of the events. I wanted to believe that (view spoiler)[ Zane was just being paranoid (hide spoiler)] but that wasn't the case and this surprised me because (view spoiler)[ Francine was in the last book and seemingly a nice person. Honestly I thought that due to what Yvette wished on Zane, that Francine would be the person for him in the next book, but I was wrong. (hide spoiler)] In other parts of the plot it took too long to know whats going on, too long of explanations and I was kind of bored. Still it was equal parts boring and exciting, equal parts love and hate. The book was good and I look forward to Zane's book, based on the synopsis I'm not actually sure how it will go. And Hybrid? I don't really recall anything about hybrids in the previous books....["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Yvette was left reeling at the end of book 3 as she thought she loved Gabriel until he got together with Maya destroying any hope she had of having Gabriel herself. Whilst dealing with these feelings she is put on a job to protect Kimberley a young actress which is under threat by an unknown source. Whilst on this job she meets Haven and an instant lust attraction is felt by both.Haven is a human vampire bounty hunter after his mother was killed and his sister kidnapped by a vampire 22 years ago. He has been killing vampires and hunting her ever since. He is hired to kidnap Kimberley as his brother Wesley has been taken and held in ransom for Kimberley or so he thinks...Yvette does not realize Haven is the kidnapper, Haven does not realize that Yvette is a vampire bodyguard and neither are prepared for what follows....or are they??Another great book by Tina, I'm so loving this series. The other books written by the male vampire perspective, it's lovely to hear Yvette's story. Now onto Zane....

    To be 100% honest, when I found out the next book in the series was going to be about Yvette I wasn’t sure if I would end up reading it. From the glimpses we got of Yvette prior to this book, she isn’t a character I thought deserved a full book. I mean; could she actually carry an entire story as the central character? No. Boy was I ever wrong!!!My heart broke a little for Yvette, as in I cried. I wasn’t expecting to shed any tears while read this book. Yvette is the only female member of Scanguards and while you can tell she’s loyal and strong her personality is…well let’s just saw she’s a Class A B**CH. But after reading this novel I came to understand her! And then enter Haven! A vampire hunter that falls for the vampire! Love knows no bounds. Haven manages to make Yvette’s heart whole again, pushing away her insecurities of being defective. I was happy with how this story turnout out!!!

    Firstly I have to admit I love a vampire romance, and have enjoyed all of this series of books, and yes I enjoyed this book too, but for some reason I prefer the man to be a werewolf or vampire it's just sexier I think!Onto this book, if you imagine angel as our hero Haven the vampire hunter, and buffy with dark hair as our Yvette one of scanguards vampire bodyguards.Haven is put in a difficult position when his brother is kidnapped by a witch, and is told he will be freed if he kidnaps a young woman and as a bonus he can kill the vampire ... Can you trust a witch - of course not! Now there all kidnapped and held together but why would she want them haven, his brother and this young woman and can they stop the vampire from killing them (she's a scanguard vampire so not likely she wants to kill them). They also need to figure out why they are there and how they can escape alive. Yvette - is a very strong woman, with a history of hurt from her human life. Haven - yes of course his hunky and sexy, strong, likes control oh yes his an alpha male. He hates vampires as one killed his mum who was a witch and to his baby sisterWe also have Kimberley the young actress, who's personally I didn't find a strong characther in this book, Wesley was more interesting though.We have all the other vampires and there wife's/mates all plodding along nicely in there cameo roles in this book.A slight pet peeve they fell in love in just over 24 hours, yes they were held together but please, give it a couple of days at least. I have to admit the book didn't end as I expected which I rather liked.I was going to give this 3 stars as i didn't rate it as much as previous books. But have decided on 3.5 stars..

    AUDIOBOOK REVIEWRating: 3.5/5Heat Rating: 3/5Narrator Performance: 3.5/5While I enjoyed this book it's not my favorite book by Tina Folsom. Mostly the things that bothered me about it were with the secondary characters. Haven's brother Wesley bugged the heck out of me. But that could have been partly the narrator's fault. He made him sound like a whiney little kid. There was also a key part that I felt was left out. There was a situation where I would Yvette's response would have been different. Instead she didn't have a response to it and it was only addressed with one sentence later in the book. Oh and the family connection was too predictable. I realized it way earlier than it came out.The good things about the book? Folsom's world building continues to grab my attention. I love the Scangaurds family. The way they bond together is more than just a bunch of coworkers getting together to fight a foe. I thought the slight smile from Zane before the battle was wonderful. He may be an ass but seeing that acceptance from him really meant something. And the smile thing was also good since it's not something he does. It leant to the significance of the moment.Some other things I liked about the book were Yvette's strength and Haven's protective instinct. There were a couple of instances where Haven jumped to save Yvette when part of it went against his nature. Although his help wasn't always needed I agreed with Yvette when she said that it was the thought that counted. And as far as Yvette's strength goes it always nice to read about a strong heroine.So yes, while this wasn't the best of Folsom's work IMO it's still worth the read. There's lots of action, betrayal and some good old fashion hot lovin'.About the narrator...Kevin Foley has a very pleasant voice and his pace is wonderful however his female voices can give the impression of a simpering weakling. Also, as I stated earlier I didn't like the way the Wesley was portrayed. Since I listened to the book instead of reading it I'll never know if my feelings about him would be the same if I had read about him.

    So, mit dem vierten Band der Reihe bin ich nun erst einmal am Ende der verfügbaren Bände angekommen.Den fünften Band gibt es schon auf Englisch, allerdings möchte ich auf Deutsch weiterlesen und somit heißt es warten (vermutlich bis November diesen Jahres).Auch der vierte Band hat mir sehr gut gefallen, auch wenn er gefühlsmäßig für mich der schwächste aus der Reihe ist.Irgendwie hat mich Yvette und auch Haven nicht so berührt, wie das die Personen in den vorrangegangenen Büchern getan haben – wobei ich nicht genau sagen kann wieso.Beide sind sympathisch, haben viel durchgemacht und sind doch gegenüber denen die sie lieben absolut loyal.Ihre aufkeimende Beziehung prickelt und Tina Folsom beweist einmal mehr, wie gut sie dieses Prickeln, das Funkensprühen und den Sex (Finger weg, wer nicht gerne expliziet beschriebene Sexszenen liest!) beschrieben kann.Havens Bruder und Yvettes Klientin Kimberley fand ich etwas nervig, im Verlauf der Geschichte gibt sich das aber.Spannend fand ich, daß nun auch Hexen richtig in die Welt der Vampire eingebaut werden, das hat die Spannung sehr erhöht und innerhalb der Geschichte für ein paar unerwartete Wendungen gesorgt.Die anderen Scanguards-Vampire kommen natürlich auch wieder vor und sorgen dafür, daß der rote Faden, der sich durch die Reihe zieht, schön weiter gesponnen wird.Insgesamt ist auch dieses Buch absolut lesenswert und zwar nicht nur für Vampirfans.Ich kann es kaum erwarten weiter zu lesen!Scanguards-Serie:Samsons sterbliche Geliebte (Samson’s Lovely Mortal)Amaurys hitzköpfige Rebellin (Amaury’s Hellion)Gabriels Gefährtin (Gabriel’s Mate)Yvettes Verzauberung (Yvette’s Haven)Zane’s Redemption

    2 1/2Well two captures that were just set ups made this just a so/so ending. There was no reason for the ending except as a set up. (view spoiler)[ To get rid of Francine(hide spoiler)] And to put tension for no good reason. (view spoiler)[ We know he is going to use turning to break the power of 3, I mean that was so obvious from the first mentioning of the power. Either one dies or turns vampire (but she holds that solution back for whatever reason) Why not just offer to turn to Samson ahead of the game? Oh, that would be too easy. Hey instead give all of them to the witch and just hope that you can beat her. And the witch must be very stupid to think the vampire cavalry would not be coming and take precautions.(hide spoiler)] The relationship between Yvette and Haven was really good until the end when it went from, "I'm going to make this just a fling, to, I want to stay with you forever, which just came too soon. She should have taken out some of the plot that didn't matter and put more of them accepting their attraction.The erotic of these were more erotic with the sex starting sooner in the books before. I think because she has already built the world, she now wants to complicate the plot with multiple storylines but it is to simplistic to be great. Still I liked Haven and Yvette's relationship... up to the end.

    Book 4 featuring characters from the Scanguards vampire world, this is Yvette's story. Yvette is the only female Scanguards member in the inner circle, and while competent and certainly loyal, she's always come across as a bitch. She's distant, moody, unfriendly and we've not known why until now. Apparently she really wanted a baby when human, and after miscarrying twice, her husband left her. Now as a vamp she's sterile, and feels no man will want her. Oh silly Yvette, you just need to meet the right guy. Enter Haven. I'm really digging that name. Tall, dark and handsome, but uh oh, he's a vampire slayer. Doesn't look good for Yvette. Kidnapping, witch stuff, prophecies and betrayal ensue. Again with the transparent plot - obviously a challenging plot is not going to happen in these books. Luckily the characters and the sexing make up for it. I'm giving this one 4 stars because it took a character, Yvette, who I didn't like in the past three books, and made me really like her here. I also really liked Haven, and I like what he did in the end to resolve their issues (even though I could see it coming). Would love to see more of these two, and would also like a further explanation of why Yvette has a special link with dogs.

    3.5 starsIf you've read the series to date, then you pretty much know what to expect; total opposites that don't expect or want to ever fall in love do, and need to overcome some major bad guy (with the help of the Scanguards crew) to be together. This is Yvette's story. I liked her and her "unexpected" love interest Haven. It's good to know the back story as to why Yvette is the tough personality that she is and how Haven was able to overcome his prejudices and get through to her. This book dives a little deeper into witches and their relationship with vampires, and brings back Francine (the witch who helped Gabriel) as an integral player. This book also reunites us with the whole cast of characters we have come to appreciate in this series, and I did like the set up for Zane's book. While its the usual fun reading I have come to expect from Tina, this one wasn't my favorite of the series. I think its because the plot twist was obvious from the beginning, but nonetheless, was a decent story with a good ending. I'll definitely be continuing with the series.

    Well, I am not really sure what to say. I didn't love this book in the Scanguards series, but since I didn't expect to, I can't say that I am all that disappointed.Haven is the son of a witch. Together with his brother, he is searching for his missing sister who was kidnapped by vampires twenty two years ago. In addition to searching, his part time job includes getting his brother out of trouble. When Wesley gets kidnapped by a witch, Haven is forced to kidnap a young actress with a vampire bodyguard. But every thing and everyone isn't what Haven expected. The witch has a good reason for wanting to connect Haven and Wesley with the actress and Yvette isn't the cold blooded killer that Haven was expecting. Could his childhood memories and assumptions be a big mistake? If so, is there a chance that Yvette is what he has really been searching for all this time?For the full review, please go to http://www.thewindowseat13.com/2015/0...

    As usual a great read from Ms Folsom. I love the Scanguards Vamps, and Yvette is no exception. I did feel the writing was a bit different than the first books in this series. Even though Yvette is "one of the boys" working as a bodyguard along the men of Scanguards, this story brought out her femininity, in a lovely way. We find out a lot about Yvette in this story, and she meets her perfect mate,and even though they go through a lot together they get the perfect HEA. They are great together, and I think Yvette isnt the only one to be turned inside out by Haven! I was a bit indifferent to him to start with, but he grew on me quickly, and is a real genuine character. There was certainly chemistry between Yvette and Haven right from the moment their eyes met. It will be interesting to see if there is anymore to their story in the next book.

    Wonderful! I was somewhat disappointed in the last book, but this one reminded me of why I love this series. The H, Haven and h, Yvette were dynamite together and the story line brought some new life into the series. It was fun, and so hot to watch how these two characters, who hated each other, form a passionate and loving relationship. I really am hoping that she continues the series, so many of the other characters need their stories to be told. I missed Dr. Drake in this one, the vampire psychiatrist. He actually played a role in the story, without being present, so I'm sure we will see him in the future. He needs some love in his life too!

    This book was actually 4.5 stars for me. I am so surprised with how much I loved this book. I usually prefer my vampires to be men but I really fell for Yvette in this book. The sexual chemistry between Yvette and Haven was smoking hot. The story was very good. I liked how they brought the witches more into this book than in previous books. I actually got very connected to the two main characters in this book and I was very happy with how there HEA came about. I'm looking forward to reading Zane's book.

Like the 4 stars indicates..."i really liked it"...which is how i've felt reading every book in this series. I am definitely looking forward to future books and can't wait for Zane's book which apparently is up next!

    Scanguard Vampire book 4, Yvette's Haven was awesome! While it didn't follow the patterns of books 1-3, Yvette's Haven was right there with the action and adventure that these vampire bodyguards offer. Yvette was dealing with a sense of loss with the knowledge that she could not have children and Haven was searching for his lost sister. Who would have thought that the one thing that would bring a vampire bounty hunter and a vampire together would be love and family. Lots of action right up to the end.
