This is what you wear to a film opening???
He could do better -- with me.
BOUND BY BLOOD, ADDICTED TO DANGER, THEY'LL ENTER THE DARKEST--AND MOST EROTIC--PLACE OF ALL . . .
A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man--vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability--a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence, a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness . . . and pleasure beyond imagining.
A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed--and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata's powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she's forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata's life is under seige by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond--and a passion that could save or doom them both forever. . . .
I adore this series. I think Adrian is a marvelously consistent author. Her books are well written, fast paced, hotter than hell and feature a delicious band of warriors. Some compare her books to JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, which in a sense is accurate. Both series feature a group of vampires who are warriors. But in my opinion, the Midnight Breed series is better plotted, and they ARE romances, much less focused on the urban fantasy storyline and pretty much completely focused on the romance, which honestly is what I like to read.
