Night Play By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Night Play (Dark-Hunter #5)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor.

She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur...

Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered—something no self-respecting wolf can accept...

But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.


Definitely one of my favourite Dark-Hunter novels in the series. Bride’s ex-boyfriend is a total jack-ass, the way he treated her and the way her broke-up with her, writing that she didn’t meet up with his image standards. Vane is hotter than the sun and a wolf-shifter (Were-Hunter) to boot, he is so sweet to want to cheer Bride up when he sees her crying. A spare of the moment romp in the backroom of Bride’s shop leads to Vane developing a mating mark on his hand and Bride her own, which means that Vane has three weeks to claim his mate or live the rest of his life alone, without feeling the touch of a woman again. Vane has spent most of his life as an outcast, only finding comfort in his brother Fang (Fang’s story can be found in Dark-Hunter #18), his sister and the bear clan. The charm of the Dark-Hunter book humour continues in this book, it was cute when Vane stayed with Bride as a wolf and she decided to name him Vane Two unknowingly. When Vane showed that jerk Taylor who was boss I cheered! Arrogant fool got put in his place. I really loved Vane and as a couple Bride and him are perfect, it’s nice to see a leading lady who is more voluptuous to a stick-thin flat stomached twig.
