He comes to her more dead than alive, a towering black-clad stranger riddled with bullets and rapidly losing blood. As she struggles to save him, veterinarian Tess Culver is unaware that the man calling himself Dante is no man at all but one of the Breed, vampire warriors engaged in a desperate battle. In a single erotically charged moment, Tess is plunged into his world - a shifting, shadowed place where bands of Rogue vampires stalk the night, cutting a swath of terror. Haunted by visions of a dark future, Dante lives and fights like there is no tomorrow. Tess is a complication he does not need - but now, with his brethren under attack, he must shield Tess from a growing threat that includes Dante himself. For with one reckless, irresistible kiss, she has become an inextricable part of his underworld realm...and his touch awakens her to hidden gifts, desires, and hungers she never knew she possessed. Bonded by blood, Dante and Tess must work together to thwart deadly enemies, even as they discover a passion that transcends the boundaries of life itself.
OK, I admit ,I usually get my vampire fix from Christine Feehan, but these guys are everything you want in an 'anti' hero--lots of angst, lots of regret. lots of love hard to win. This particular vampire, Dante(fantastic voice, Hilary!) pulled you in from the begining. You want him to get the rogue, you want him to win the girl, you flat out want the guy to have everything he ever wanted. So I consider it a great book when I care that much about the characters. Also, half way through, I'm on line buying the next one! So yeah, go for this one, heck go for all of them, even if you've read them, they are all worth the listen!!
This is my second audio book in the Midnight Breed series and I have enjoyed both the books and Hillary Huber's narration.
Have read all but the first,and I nearly sideswiped a UPS truck when the romance started in that one! Great reads all and the reader, at least of the first book, was great! I urge you to read or listen in order.
