REVIEW

"Great paranormal tale"

They roamed the Scottish forests for centuries until 1370. Ulric, leader of the pack of upyr shapeshifters, is irate that the female he should be protecting, Gillian selected someone else to be her mate. Angry, Ulric leaves the safety of the forest and his pack to wander the streets of Bridesmere to see what the excitement of humans is to Gillian.

Juliana Batoc flees an arranged betrothal. Ulric sees her, but instead of his usual taste for human blood, he feels a need to keep her safe due to some weird attraction. He agrees to help her, but soon she knows his deepest secrets and demands he bring her over as he has done with her virginity. He wants nothing more, but first she must meet the pack who must accept her as one of them. Inside that Eden resides a new snake prepared to cause trouble for the pack through the human female.

Though very similar in tone to its predecessor CATCHING MIDNIGHT, fans of historical vampire romances will appreciate Emma Holly's paranormal tale. The strong couple and his pack make believers of the audience. The story line hooks the reader with its prime theme of acceptance of her by his kin though the intrigue of the troublemaker makes it a bit too easy to reject Juliana even if it adds suspense. Fans of fourteenth century paranormal tales will enjoy HUNTING MIDNIGHT.

SUMMARY

For centuries, Ulric's pack of shapeshifting immortals have hidden in the Scottish forest, far from the dangers of the human world. Only when his longtime lover betrays him does their leader venture out, recklessly roaming the streets of Bridesmere, singing for his supper . . . and whatever else he desires.

Ulric never expects to meet Juliana Buxton, dutiful daughter of a rich merchant, nor to be blackmailed into helping her escape her elderly betrothed. Juliana is everything he has learned to distrust in a woman: bright, bold, and endlessly curious. The smart course of action would be to ditch her, no matter how deliciously passionate she is.

Luckily, Ulric's heart has other ideas.
