Midnight Awakening By Lara Adrian

Midnight Awakening (Midnight Breed #3)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


With a dagger in her hand and vengeance on her mind, Darkhaven beauty Elise Chase prowls Boston’s streets in search of retribution against the Rogue vampires who took from her everything she cherished. Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that the power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man—the deadliest of the Breed warriors, Tegan.

No stranger to loss, Tegan knows Elise’s pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged—a bond that will link them by blood and vow—and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart. . .


Elise has a lot to deal with, her psychic powers and the death of her son who turned Rogue; she searches the night for the Rogues and Minions, the ones responsible for her son’s death that had cut her so deep. Tegan runs into Elise out hunting for Rogues himself, coming to her rescue, he knows her from the Darkhaven sanctuaries in the past, but he hasn’t forgotten her, not by a long shot, he knows too well the grief that consumes her to the point of feeling numb, his Breedmate was badly hurt by Rogues when he was out on patrol one night, eventually being put out of her suffering by one of the other Breed members;

“Hell, when was the last time he’d felt anything at all?
He remembered pain.
He remembered loss, the anger that had consumed him... long, long ago.
He remembered Sorcha and how much he’d loved her. How sweetly innocent she was and how completely she had trusted him to keep her safe and protected.
God, how he’d failed her. He would never forget what had been done to her, how savagely she’d been abused. To survive the blow of her death, he had learned to detach from his grief, from his raw fury. But he would never forget. Would never forgive.”

When Tegan decides to pay Elise another visit, he find her in pain from her ability, her nose bleeding, using a psychic gift of his own, he calms her, puts her in a trance to allow her to sleep, her gift muted while he is at her side. Elise manages to get her hands on a book that the Rogue’s need, now they are after her and Tegan is hell bent on protecting her. Nothing comes easy between the two, even when they both know they love each other, they pasts get in the way and I was glad when they finally let their barriers down and found home in each other. It was also nice to read about Tess from the last book in this one and how she is using her talent which she saw as a curse to help others and Rio.  Packed full of action, suspense and hot steamy lovin’.
