"This is a series that is not to be missed."

Bush pilot Alexandra Maguire is making her usual trip through the Alaskan wilds when she comes across something horrible. The massacre awakens the memories of what she witnessed as a child and starts to haunt her again. She once again tries to keep her claims to herself, knowing that no-one will believe her stories of fangs and footprints in the snow. Then a dark stranger appears in town and he opens her mind to a whole new world.

Sent from Boston to investigate the attacks and put an end to the killings, vampire Breed warrior Kade is no stranger to the Alaskan weather. He isn't happy to be back and hopes the secrets he left behind are still unknown to the rest of his family. As he goes about his investigation he meets Alex and he soon realises that she is special. Then things start clicking into place and Kade find himself fighting feelings he doesn't have time for. He also finds out that the killer he is searching for is one of the most deadly he will ever come across.

Shades of Midnight is the seventh book in the Midnight Breed series and one of the best yet. I have been following this series religiously since it started and I am happy it had picked up speed again. The last book Ashes of Midnight was certainly not the best yet and I was worried that the Midnight Breed series was going downhill. Well this new installment certainly showed me that there was nothing to be worried about. Shades of Midnight has left me wanting more. Now!

With twists and turns all the way through the well thought out story, this romantic paranormal delight is serious and fast-paced. I had a hard time putting this one down and loved the two main characters, their tale and the continuing Midnight Breed story. Erotic and exciting the author really out did herself this time around and I hope that the next in the series keeps the pace.

Anyone who enjoys the Black Dagger Brotherhood should pick up this series. If you are a Lynsay Sands or Cynthia Eden fan then you will also feel right at home with these books. However make sure you start at the beginning and savour the trip. This is a series that is not to be missed.

They were bounded by blood, his dark kiss promising eternity...

In a frozen wilderness steeped in darkness, the lines between good and evil, lover and enemy, are never black or white but drawn in Shades of Midnight.

Something inhuman is stalking the frigid Alaskan wilds, leaving unspeakable carnage in its wake. For bush pilot Alexandra Maguire, the killings stir memories of a horrific event she witnessed as a child and evoke in her the inexplicable sense of otherness she has long felt within herself but never fully understood . . . until a darkly seductive stranger with secrets of his own enters her world.

Sent from Boston on a mission to investigate the savage attacks and stop the slaughter, vampire warrior Kade has his own reasons for returning to the frigid, forbidding place of his birth. Haunted by a secret shame, Kade soon realizes the stunning truth of the threat he faces–a threat that will jeopardize the fragile bond he has formed with the courageous, determined young woman who arouses his deepest passions and most primal hungers. But in bringing Alex into his world of blood and darkness, Kade must confront both his own personal demons and the even greater evil that could destroy all he holds dear.
