"A completely captivating tale of animalistic love and lovers"

Within the realm between man and beast, a creature longs for love and peace. It is with a touch of human kindness that will tame the tiger's fierce, growling nature-- and unleash the night.

Marguerite D' Aubert Goudeau and some friends from college have ended up at Sanctuary to give a toast to Nick Gautier, in remembrance of him. Marguerite suddenly gets a feeling that someone is staring at her, and she is right. Across the room is a busboy that is cleaning the tables, his name is Wren. He is a complete loner, even with the others that reside and work at Sanctuary, which is run by the Bears.

Wren is what they call an abomination to his kind. He is neither one tiger breed nor another; he is a combination, which also makes him a very deadly predator. After one of the guys Marguerite is sitting with rudely throws a beer in Wren's face, that is when things start to get interesting and very heated. The chain of events have begun...

Marguerite and Wren will embark on a journey filled with intrigue, deadly creatures, fierce males, erotic fervor, and things that will have you breathless and blushing—yep, it is that good!

Wren has never been loved, touched or befriended, expect for the monkey that he has, but when he sets his piercing, turquoise gaze upon Marguerite, it is almost magic for him. She is beauty and pure elegance to him; she represents all the things he can never have. But, Wren will have bigger troubles ahead and Marguerite will be right in the thick of things.

Wren is absolutely the opposite of what Marguerite stands for in the tight click she finds herself in. Something in his shy and deep voice calls to her body and mind, beckoning to her very soul for comfort and love. Marguerite sees Wren for the truly magnificent creature and man he is. How can an animal/tiger make it work with a human? Maybe some lovers are just not meant to be-- and then again....

First off, get comfortable because this is a great read and you will not be putting it down anytime soon.

Unleash The Night is the newest release by highly acclaimed author Sherrilyn Kenyon. Again Ms. Kenyon has penned another alpha-enhanced male lead with attributes that made this reader swoon with girlish delight. Starting with a pristine premise, Ms. Kenyon builds and expounds upon this story, assembling it with phrases and paragraphs, adding in snappy wordplay until it is a completely captivating tale of animalistic love and lovers. Ms. Kenyon has her finger directly on the pulse of the reader's wants and desires. Then she pounds the pages with excellent and highly entertaining characters and dialogues. Paranormal novels just do not get much better than this, folks.

To all the fans, and yet to be fans of Sherrilyn Kenyon, this is a do not miss read! This novel can easily be a stand-alone, but after reading it, you will be rushing out to the nearest bookstore to grab the rest of this paranormal princess' series.

SUMMARY

Unleash the forbidden... Unleash the hunger...

**2005 PEARL WINNER - BEST EROTIC ROMANCE**
**2005 PEARL HONORABLE MENTION - BEST OVERALL PARANORMAL**

It's a predator eat predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live...

An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals—snow leopard and white tiger—Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.

Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.

In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls...
