He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems.
For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.
Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues.
Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.
Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all. . .
You just promised me eternity, you know. I can make you live to regret it.
If you follow my reviews you’ll know I LOVE Vampire Novels. Midnight Breed is like Black Dagger Brotherhood series in that they are a band of vampires hunting bad guys. They are slightly tortured brooding hero’s.
Gabrielle is unlike most heroines. She’s shy, but she’s not a push over. She prefers her own company, and is quite introverted.
I love it when I can relate to the heroines in the stories.
Lucan is like all leaders. He’s tough and sacrificing, and very warrior like.
There was definitely insta-lust between them, but it slowly built up to a real connection.
I felt the ‘Breedmate’ solution was really great. The idea of the birthmark and hidden talents to assist the warriors was super clever, and unlike what I’ve read in other Paranormal Romance.
Maybe she should cut the guy a little slack, […] Maybe Thorne had been a no-show because something bad happened to him on the job.
What if he’d been injured in the line of duty and didn’t come by as promised because he was incapacitated in some way? Maybe he hadn’t called to apologize or to explain his absence because he physically couldn’t.
Right. And maybe she had checked her brain into her panties from the second she first laid eyes on the man.
