"a dramatic and romantic read"

Claire Roth flees from her home when it is threatened, only to find the threat is a vampire warrior she once knew. Andreas Reichen has been missing, presumed dead, and now he is a danger consumed by the revenge he feels he needs to take on Claire's husband. Claire was once close to this man but now she sees him as a stranger, but she still wants to help him.

Nothing will stop Andreas from getting vengeance and even Claire finds it hard to stop him. Blood-bonded to a husband she realises she doesn't really know, Claire goes with Andreas in the hope that she can save him. What she doesn't expect is for their old feelings for each other to emerge and take over. Hopefully Andreas can control his fire and not burn the one he really does love.

Book six in the Midnight Breed series is certainly not the best yet but it was still a dramatic and romantic read. The whole Midnight Breed concept has always been enough to keep me returning to this series and I am still a follower. However, something was missing from this book but it could have just been that it took me a little longer than usual to get back into this series.

Shades of Midnight, Book Seven in this amazing paranormal erotic series, is due out in the Spring of next year. Hopefully when it comes out I will remember all that happened in this book and will not need so much time to slip back into this wonderful world and interesting characters.

A woman driven by blood. A man thirsting for vengeance.

A place where darkness and desire meet...

As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury—or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure.

Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren . . . even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger—and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave, and the only one he’s ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins—one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path. . . .
