If you have not started this series yet, start it now!
The Templar Vampires are truly a must read for fans of
paranormal romance, the third book of the Templar Vampire
Novels is truly amazing and in the fashion that is Ms.
Lyons's work, it is not a disappointment. It's a page
turner that embroils the reader even deeper into the dark
world of the Knights Templar Vampires. These men are
strong, masculine warriors, they truly demand a woman's
attention and the heroine's are vibrant women of strength
that make for sizzling chemistry. I highly recommend Ms.
Lyons' book, Tempting Darkness, it is every bit as
fantastic as Midnight Sun and The Daystar. I am hooked on
The Templar Vampires and on Rene Lyons and simply can't
wait for yet another book from this wonderful writer.
