Determinant by A.M. Hargrove Blog Tour

Welcome to our stop on the Determinant blog tour!

Have we got a treat for you're going to be glad you stopped by!

Oh, and don't forget to enter the wondrously fabulously awesome giveaway from A.M.!

Rafflecopter below for a chance to win an ebook of Resurrection or Determinant, or a Kindle Touch!

But first, the book
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?

NOTE:  Although Determinant is book 3 in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.  The same characters we loved from Survival and Resurrection are back, but the story is done so you won't be completely lost if you haven't read them first.  However, I recommend that you do!

And now, the fun
Let me introduce you to the Guardians of Vesuron! 

Now remember, these are MY versions/pictures of what I think they look like.  But, I think I did a pretty good job of picking them out, if I do say so myself...

I'd love to hear what you think, so leave a comment letting me know what you think of my choices!


Since Rykerian is one of the MCs in Determinant, we'll meet him first. Rykerian is, in the words of A.M. Hargrove, elegant sophistication. His look is always polished, no matter the circumstances, like a model from the pages of GQ. Rykerian never has a hair out of place, and his hair is incomparable. It is a rainbow of hues of bronze, red, blonde, and every color in between. It is truly magnificent and never fails to escape anyone's attention. Add to that his vivid blue eyes, and he summons instant female attraction. Rykerian is comparable to his mother in looks. I also heard he has a soft spot for chocolate chip cookies.


Next up is Rayn,  MC of Survival and Resurrection.  Where Rykerian is comparable to their mother, Rayne is comparable to their father in looks.  He is the oldest of the siblings (four younger brothers, one younger sister), and set to be next in line as leader of the Guardians.  Rayn is described as having green eyes and black wavy hair. 


Therron stands about six feet four, has shaggy brown hair and green eyes, and an overall rough-around-the edges look.  He has impeccable manners and is exceedingly easy going, but when he enters a room, the sheer size of him turns heads – he commands attention.  His shabbiness makes you want to take him and straighten up everything about him.  Therron is second in command, so to speak, and would take over if Rayn were ever unable to perform his duties as leader.


Tesslar is dark haired and blue eyed.  He is slimmer than the other Guardians, not as muscular, but don't let that fool you.  He has a devilish appearance to him, as if any moment he would spring a trick on you.  Tesslar is the motorcycle lover in the family. 

Xarrid is the youngest brother.  He is tall, dark and handsome.  He has blue eyes, and his long wavy hair gives him a wild, unkempt look. Unlike the rest of the family, Xarrid doesn't care for sports cars much, so he usually drives a Range Rover or Escalade. 


Sharra , the lone sister, has an attraction for vampires.  She is five feet nine, slender, with straight black hair and blue eyes.  She is beauty of the family but has an unusual knack for slaughtering American slang.  She has a commanding personality. 

And last but not least, I figured we'd better introduce the leading ladies as well.  I don't want the Guardians think I'm playing favorites...



Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you feel like you got to know the Guardians just a little better.  After all, they are here on Earth to protect regular people like you and me!
