Kiss Of Midnight (Midnight Breed, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

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. . . .

Kiss of Midnight

Great take on the Vampire legends!

I really Like this series. It has a bit different take on the evolution of Vampires. They evolved from aliens who crash landed thousands of years ago and didn’t have the constitution for animal or plant life on Earth. The only food source being human blood. Eventually after much time, certain women with a special trait, characterized by a teardrop shaped birthmark were able to give birth to alien-human hybrids (male vampires). These men of the breed continue to find breed mates (women with the birthmark) to mate and have children with.

Lucan is the Leader of the warrior class of the breed and is a genOne, meaning that his father was one of the original aliens that crashed. Gabrielle is a photographer who sees a murder outside a nightclub and snaps some grainy cell phone pictures of a group of rogue vampires devouring a human. The police think she is crazy, but Lucan was there and killed most of the rogues and cleaned up the scene, but one got away. He goes to see Gabrielle to get her pictures since no human should have that kind of evidence even if the police didn’t believe her.

Lucan and Gabrielle feel an attraction for each other right away and it isn’t long before Lucan notices she has the teardrop birthmark. While he does not want a mate in his line of work as a warrior, he can’t seem to stay away from her.

“Jesus,” Dante interjected when the heavy quiet in the vehicle seemed endless. “All this touchy feely is making me itchy to kill something. How about we quit jerking each other off and go blow the roof off this mutha?”
