New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian introduces the first novel in a thrilling new vampire romance series set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.
As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman’s laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence. Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. But when he thwarts a killing under way in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas, Asher meets a beautiful woman who draws him into a deadly game against powerful enemies—one that will test both his skills and his tarnished honor.
Naomi Fallon is used to getting out of dicey situations. Orphaned as a child after her mother’s murder, she didn’t survive twenty-six years on the street without using up most of her nine lives. But when her latest caper lands her in the Mojave against a Vegas gangster’s henchmen, she’s certain her number is up. Then he appears—immense, brutal, and far from human. Naomi’s never needed anyone’s help, least of all one of the Breed. But after one risk too many, only a man with Asher’s skills can keep her safe. Yet the solitary, seductively handsome vampire has enemies of his own, and a secret that will not only shatter her faith in him, but her heart, proving what she’s feared all along—that trust is only an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.

I received an advance copy for my official review.
I really enjoyed this book. Asher and Naomi were an unexpected couple. Both with dark pasts that can come back and destroy the lives they are trying to build. Many twists and turns.
I will recommend this book to everyone who loves her books and if your looking for something new.
I just have questions as to how all these others hunters escaped the program?
Excellent start for this spinoff series! I love the Midnight Breed series, and this did not disappoint. Lots of adventure, action, suspense and sexy scenes had me devouring this in a day. Can’t wait for the next installment to this series.
