Veil of Midnight

Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian is the fifth book in her Midnight Breed series. From the back cover~

Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest-and most erotic-place of all.

A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man-vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability-a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence-a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness...and pleasure beyond imagining.

A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed-and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way:the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata's powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she's forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desires fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata's life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond-and a passion that could save or doom them both forever...

I love Lara Adrian's world of the Midnight Breed. In Veil of Midnight, Niko is sent to find a Gen-One Vampire and warn him of the assassinations that have been occurring against the Gen-One vampires. Niko is taken down by Renata, the Gen-One's bodyguard, and taken to the compound to meet Sergei Yakut, the very Gen-One vampire Niko has been searching for in Montreal. Niko feels an instant attraction to Renata, but because of a misunderstanding, believes she is tied to Yakut.

Renata and Niko must overlook their misunderstandings to keep each other alive and save the life a child, Mira, who is so important to Renata. While they are trying to save Mira, Renata and Niko discover a passion for one another that burns up the pages. Veil of Midnight gives the reader action, a bit of mystery, and lots of passion and romance. I can't wait for Ashes of Midnight, the next in the Midnight Breed series that comes out in May.

Oooh, does this mean you liked it? It seems so. I hope so, as I'm so looking forward to it. Dear Author gave it a C. But sometimes they are hard on a book.

I really did like it. I haven't had as much time to read lately, so it took me a little bit longer than normal, but I think it should be rated at least a B or B+.
