"The story is delightly sexy and dangerous"

Vane Kattalakis is a tormented being. Being a Were Hunter wolf he knows that his life won't be easy but to lose the only family he had is about to drive him mad. He is a wanted creature, his own pack is hunting him. The last thing he needs right now is a mate, especially a human who has no defense against his kind.

Bride McTierney is tired of men and their cruel ways. She is tired of them trying to make her something she isn't. Why can't they just except her for who and what she is? Tired of them hurting her, she is ready to give them up. Wanting what she thinks doesn't exist anymore, a knight in shining armor. Then a man so deadly sexy it should be illegal enters her shop and makes her think twice about giving men up for good.

Once again we enter the dangerous world of the Dark Hunters only this time we fully meet the Were Hunters and their ablities. To those that have read these books you are fully aware of Mrs. Kenyon's ablity to draw a world so full of detail and depth that for a time being you leave this world and enter another. Night Play is no exception to that. In New Orleans there hunts what we have been taught to fear but it's so sexy who can resist? For that matter who would want to?

After losing his sister Vane is looking for any kind of comfort but not expecting any. When he happens across Bride's store he can't believe his luck in seeing the woman again and can't resist the temptation to speak to her, but would giving in to this in fact be his undoing? In a world where creatures can time jump and wield magic with mere thought can a human survive? This is what Vane faces as he watches over his mate to keep her safe from the ones hunting him. Staring death in the face, Bride and Vane must decide if they can make it together with a vareity of characters that rage from deadly to down right funny in tow. The story is delightly sexy and dangerous.

When the moon is full, passion is at its hottest...

Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor. She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur...

Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered--something no self-respecting wolf can accept...

But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.
