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. . . . From the Paperback edition.

Book 1 in Midnight Breed Series, followed by Kiss of Crimson. Sexy story of Gabrielle Maxwell, photographer and breedmate, and Lucan Thorne, leader of the order. Deja vu - Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. - so many similarities, but I still think BDB is a bit better. I will read on with the series but so far this book was not as good as BDB or Dark Hunter series by S. Kenyon or Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole.

I quite enjoyed this book, although I was taken by surprise with the level and amount of sex scenes. Thankfully it didn't ruin the storyline which was something unique to me. I can't wait to read the next book!

Been waiting for this book for months and was thankfully the first to place a hold and borrow it. I read it in half a day and most of a night (thankfully I didn't have to get up early for work the next morning). Really enjoyed the story, the set up of the family of vampires. I liked the interplay between the main characters. I hope YPRL buys more of the series, I already have the next book in my "For Later" list.

Enjoyed reading this first book in the series and looking forward to reading the next. Found similarities between this storyline and J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood storyline so I would recommend it to fans of hers or anyone looking for a good romantic suspense novel.

After witnessing a murder and barely escaping with her life, Gabrielle Maxwell does what any good and sane citizen would do; she calls the police. Upon their arrival, they find nothing that indicates anything violent happened outside the nightclub. While Gabrielle insists that she's not lying, she can't help but think she might be insane like her birth mother. The only thing that gives her hope that she is perfectly sane is the pictures she took on her cell phone as she was running away from the group of men who so savagely murdered a man right in front of her. When "Detective" Lucan Thorne appears on her doorstep, she has no reason to doubt his authenticity.

Lucan Thorne is instantly attracted to Gabrielle and almost makes an irreversible mistake when he attempts to take her blood. Seeing the mark that shows Gabrielle is a Breedmate, Lucan knows that he can't take her blood, nor can he leave her to continue living the life she has. Only a handful of human women are marked as such and to take her blood would mean mating with her for life. The the leader of an elite group of warriors, the Breed only works to protect humans from vampires that have let Bloodlust overcome them and become Rogue. When it seems that the Rogues are somehow organizing their ranks and starting a war in the human world, Lucan is determined that Gabrielle won't end up in the middle of it.
