Eternal Blades
Sekhmet’s Guardian’s Book Three
By: V.S. Nelson 

Tshering Snow never meant to fall hopelessly in love with her savior, the Ancient, known as Lance, but she did. He seems to care deeply for her, spending every available hour with her, but will he be able to give up his past and settle down with one woman? After all, he has the reputation of a playboy.

Lance hates the personification he has created around himself. Afraid the others might not understand why; he has held back the truth from Gabriel and the other Guardians, he has waited for the right woman, the one Sekhmet prophesized so long ago. And now he has found her. When he is accused of fathering a child by both Gabriel and Tshering, how can he make them believe the child is not his, even if the boy is a spitting imagine of him?

After the women are attacked by Set’s Legions while relaxing on Jennifer’s new yacht, they come to the unanimous decision; they will train and join the Guardian forces. But that’s not as easy as it was meant to be. Old fashioned and hard headed, Gabriel is determined he will not having women fighting in their war.

When Tshering, Jennifer and Jessica are taken hostage by Set’s Legions all hell breaks loose on the Guardian’s compound. Lost without their mates, brother fights brother while they try save their women and put an end to the Legion’s terror. Will Sekhmet, the goddess they serve, step in and reveal the truth or will she leave them to find their own solutions to a never ending war as she has in the past?

My Review
While everyone thinks Lance is a playboy and fathered a child he has to prove he didn't. It's hard to do when everyone thinks he sleeps around. As a Guardian he has kept a few secrets and his real love life is one of them. Tshering never expected to fall for Lance because of his reputation. She has fallen for him and now has to see if he will be true to her or still play the field. Lance will have to convince her that his secret is the truth. Tshering, Jennifer and Jessica decide they won't just sit by the side anymore and want to be Guardians as well. Gabriel is dead set against that as he believes woman are ment to be protected. When the woman are taken by Set's Legions it is up to the men to work together to get them back but they have  to stop fighting each other long enough to do so.

I haven't read the previous books in this series but I had no trouble figuring things out. The author gives you the background so you don't get lost. I liked all the characters a whole lot and will defentily have to get the first two books to see what I missed. Lance I really liked as he seemed to be one thing but after hearing his secret it made him very dear to my heart. I love how far he will go for the woman meant to be his mate. I also like how these women don't want to just sit by but want the right to fight as well.You get to see not just Lance and Tshering story but you also see quite a bit of the other two couples as well. I liked these Guardian and Set's Legion. It made for an interesting plot that kept you attention. I liked all the action and the pace of the book. I look forward to reading more books in this series. If you enjoy books with surprises, facsinating characters and more try this series.

4 out of 5 Stars

Lance led Gabriel up the two flights of stairs then waited for Gabe to lead him into the room the boy was given. Jennifer rose from her position next to the boy on the side of the bed when the two entered the room. Stepping back, she watched as Lance and Gabriel approached the bed.

Lance couldn’t believe what was lying in the large four poster bed--an exact miniature of himself. Running his hand over the top of head, which he often did when he had a puzzle to solve, he turned and looked at Gabriel.

“I don’t understand… How can this be? Gabe, I swear I’m as confused as you are… He can’t be mine, I swear it.” 

“You expect me to believe he isn’t yours. For Christ’s sake, Lance, take another look at that child and tell me he isn’t yours. We need to know who his mother is.” 

Tshering hearing Gabriel’s loud voice next door stepped out into the hall then into the room. Her eyes widened as she stared down at the small child, seeing the child’s face for the first time. 

She looked up at Lance, confusion written all over her face. “Why didn’t you didn’t tell me you had a son?”

“Tshering, he’s not mine… I swear it!”

Lance watched her eyes narrow in disbelief. She thought he was lying.

“God Damn it, doesn’t anyone here believe me? I’m telling you he isn’t mine… He can’t be.”
