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. . . .

Review: First, I need to thank Crystal. Had it not been for her review and recommendation, I may never have heard of Lara Adrian or her novels. Thank you, Crystal!
An excellent novel! I know it took me two days to read it, but I was having a hard time putting it down when I was.
Every description of the scene and location has you feeling like you’re there, taking it all in with your own eyes.
Action scenes have you damn near holding your breath in anticipation – enough of them and all in the right places.
Erotic sex scenes make you hot under the collar – enough of them and in all the right places, LOL!
And the characters! Nothing simple about them, especialy the main characters. You completely understand their world, what they are, who they are, why they do what they do and what it means to them. The vampire world comes to the reader in a small, different twist from the norm. I can only think of one other author where the vampire world came about with a slight similarity and that’s Angela Knight. Otherwise, original.
A great new author. I just pulled her second novel, Kiss of Crimson, from my TBR pile!
