Midnight Breed – Hunter Legacy Book 1
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 henchman, 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 this book from the authors for an honest review.
So exciting to see a spin off series from one of my favorite original paranormal books/authors. Midnight Breed was one of the first series who got me back into reading a few years ago. I have been a huge fan and so when the spin off ARCS were available, I was so excited!!!
This story takes place 20 year after the Breed have been outted to the humans. We, as a whole human society, are not so thrilled with our fanged neighbors but we are coexisting. You don’t need to have read the Midnight Breed but seeing as we see characters from the original series it does make the book that much more exciting.
Asher is a Gen 1 Breed who has done more bad things in his life then he wants to remember or think about. He just wants to live on his farm and be left alone. Solitary life is perfect for him. When he runs into a girl and saves her from a bunch of bad men, he is annoyed he can’t just go on his way. Why can’t he just leave her there? WELLL she is a rare human. She is a Breedmate. He is honor bound to protect her until The Order can come and take her to a safe place. WELLLLL, Naomi is not about to let that happen.
When Naomi wakes up to be told she is a special vampire baby making human, ok Asher did not say that but she has it in her head he did…LOL she runs for the hills. She has vengeance plans to make happen. She will make her mothers murdered pay and she will not fail in her plan.
Naomi and Asher are the perfect pair to be fated together. They both have horrors in their past and demons in their present to fight to make the HEA happen. They both are so interested in the other but they will not fail the “duties” they both have even if that pesky chemistry still gets in the way!! LOL
I can’t wait for another book!
