Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian

Lara was kind enough to send this to me and I'm so glad she did! It was quite yummy.

Blurb shamelessly stolen from Lara's site:

In present day Boston, trouble is brewing. Vampires are going Rogue, feeding without discretion, killing humans in the streets. For Lucan Thorne, a Breed warrior of the first generation and the Order's fearsome leader, the battles are just a taste of the carnage to come. A blood war is set to ignite, and he is determined to put it to a swift end. But when a beautiful young photographer gets caught in the crosshairs, her pictures threatening to expose the entire vampire race, Lucan has no choice except to bring her into the dark world he commands.

Title: Kiss of Midnight

Author: Lara Adrian

Year published: 2007

Why I picked up this book: Because it looked good.

Do I like the cover? Yes, I like the yellow and blue. It's nice to see something different with a paranormal cover.

Is this part of a series? Yeppers, that it is.

What I enjoyed about the book: I really liked the world and Adrian's take on vampires. Also, I found that I wasn't annoyed at the main characters as I have been in a few paranormal romances. The angst didn't bother me much. This is good. And the fact that I kinda want to reread the book is a plus. I liked how Gabrielle's connection to the vamp world is played out. And the way that Adrian described Gabrielle's photographs makes me think I can actually visualize them. That's another thing I really noticed about the book, I can definitely visualize scenes as I think back on the book. I just really enjoyed this one and can't wait to read the second. Which is a long, long time from now.

What I didn’t like about the book? The names. Well, nothing really wrong with them, but they were awfully similar to a few other books that involved vampires.

Is this a new-to-me author and would I read something by this author again? New to me author and I'm definitely reading more!

Am I keeping it or passing it on? Keeping it. And will most likely get the print version, too.
