Kiss of Midnight
by Lara Adrian

He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.
Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.
Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all. . . .

my thoughts~
I would love a Lucan of my very own! He seems to be smoking hot! The dark hair, the fangs, yum! I've been wanting to read The Midnight Breed series for awhile now and had just not had the opportunity. Since I've taken on the philosophy of reading only what I want, when I want, well perfect time to start the series! I really enjoyed reading Lucan & Gabrielle's tale and look forward to seeing them in the books I still have to read. It always makes me laugh when I'm reading a book and the hero or heroine or even both fight so hard to NOT be together. Sometimes I catch myself (like in this book) talking to Lucan in my head, telling him to just give it up. He was toast!
The Breed are vampires that are descended from 8 ancients that came from another world and decimated whole villages & towns (ever hear of the Mayan's? mmmhmm) and they could only breed with women with certain DNA, thats what makes the women Breedmates. And the offspring are only male and Lucan is one of the last few of first gen vampire and he is fighting everyday of the bloodlust that turns their kind Rogue. I really enjoyed reading Kiss Of Midnight and have eagerly started reading book #2, Kiss of Crimson.
