Determinant (The Guardians of Vesturon #3) by A.M. Hargrove Blog Tour Stop

January St. Davis, on her own since the age of sixteen and struggling to stay in college, thinks she’s scored in a major way when she lands a paid summer internship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. One evening, after working an especially long shift, a chance encounter with a group of mysterious men alters the course of her life.

Rykerian Yarrister, a Guardian of Vesturon with unearthly powers and impossibly gorgeous looks, finds himself at odds over the human female he recently saved from certain death. When it seems he is on the verge of winning her over, she is ripped from his hands by a strange and powerful being, threatening to destroy her if his demands are not met.

Do Rykerian and the Guardians have the ability to meet this fierce barbarian’s ultimatums, or will January suffer a horrid demise?




Can I just say where to begin...... I read this book is 7 hours! I told the kids to leave me alone and go bother their father because mommy needed some "ME" time! Okay that is how good this book is. Laundry and cooking and cleaning be dammed! A.M. has crafted and created a world where I want to live minus the bad stuff and the diseases of course. But HOLY HADES Rykerian can we have Alien babies?? 

January has had a rough life. She has lost a friend who has just up and disappeared and her parents treat her badly and she has two jobs. Dam can you say HOLY STRESS!What person would not go insane with all that on her plate. So when she gets some bright news that she has chosen to work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta she is excited to be starting something new. But as her luck would have it one night she is working when she sees some men come in and take some vials out of the center.

January is saved by Rykerian who is a Guardian. Rykerian takes her home to make sure she will be safe. Then when she is kidnapped everything changes for Rykerian because he will stop at nothing to get January back. January means a lot to Rykerian and he is determined to get her back safe and sound and in his arms again. Love is a crazy thing because he is willing to risk it all to get the love of his life back.

A.M. has done a superb job with the villains as well. I love me some bad boys and boy of boy does she have a few in this book that had me wishing they were real. Give this series a go because it is totally EPIC and it will leave you breathless and drooling for more!
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.


"Boss, is that you?"

"Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone?"

"Er... right. Well, I'm calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate."

"Why ever would I want to do that?"

"Because I quit you idiot!"

A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.

"Hi yummy hubby, can you pick me up at Starbucks?"

"Sure... Having some car trouble?"

"Not at all. I don't have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job."


"It's time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist."

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a young adult paranormal romance author of self-published ebooks. Her series, The Guardians of Vesturon, centers around a family of six siblings and is a mix of humor, mystery, suspense and of course, love. Survival is her first book in the series and her second, Resurrection will be released in January.

If you're wondering, it didn't happen EXACTLY that way, but....
