Review: Kiss of Midnight

Title: Kiss of Midnight
Author: Lara Adrian
Series: The Midnight Breed
Publisher: Dell 
Publication Date: May 1, 2007 

Summary: 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. .

Review: Wow. What a fun paranormal romance. This series is about a group of huge, warrior vampires (much like Black Dagger Brotherhood's) finding their intended human mate. This book is about their leader Lucan and Gabrielle.
It was sexy, fun, sad, upsetting, pretty dark but enjoyable. The vampires themselves have a different history and their foe are the vampires who succumb to bloodlust and quit following their society's rules.
Lucan is the leader of this group of warriors, around 900 years old and not looking to settle down (It is always so much fun to watch the big ones fall). Gabrielle is a photographer with an interesting eye and an uncanny ability to see through vampire mind glamour, seeing things other humans can't process. It puts her in Lucan's path while hunting rogues, and their attraction is intense and sexy.
They both have issues that need overcoming. The other warrior vampires are interesting and have their demons as well. I am looking forward to seeing some of the others "fall" to love in the books to come.
If you like series PNRs like BDB the Psy/Changling or Dragon Pyr series, check them out.
