Midnight Rising By Lara Adrian

Midnight Rising (Midnight Breed #4)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


In a world of shadows and dark, consuming hungers, desire is the deadliest weapon...

For journalist Dylan Alexander, it began with the discovery of a hidden tomb, thrusting her into the center of a gathering storm of violence and secrets. But nothing is as dangerous as the scarred, lethally seductive man who rises from the shadows to draw her into his world of dark desire and endless night.
Fueled by pain and rage over a shattering betrayal, the warrior Rio has pledged his life to the war against the Rogues. He will let nothing stand in his way, least of all a mortal woman with the power to expose the entire vampire race. For an ancient evil has been awakened, and a stunning darkness is on the rise. Suddenly Dylan is powerless to resist Rio's touch, even as she uncovers a shocking link to her own past. And now she must choose: Leave Rio's midnight realm, or risk it all for the man who has shown her true passion and the infinite pleasures of the heart. . . .


Dylan has the ability to see the dead, which she is not all that comfortable with and unable to control it. Rio is haunted by the memory of his dead Breedmate Eva, invading his dreams, the woman who betrayed him. When Dylan stumbles upon a cave/crypt where Rio has been staying, content on his own death and when he smells her he finds her hard to resist, when she leaves after taking his picture with her camera he is determined to track her down again to save the secrecy of what he is;

“He wanted her.
After the months of exile in that godforsaken cave, after Eva’s deception that had left him dead in so many ways, Rio looked at this woman and felt...alive.”

Rio has to keep Dylan under watch until he can figure out how many others have seen the pictures or know about them but when he realises that she is a Breedmate due to her birthmark, things get even more complicated and he has to tell her about everything. Rio takes Dylan back to the Breed compound to keep her safe and now that she knows of what she is, she must decide whether to stay with the Breeds, or go back to her old life. Dylan’s mother is sick and in hospital and while she is there visiting her she sees the host of a Breedmate, warning her of Breedmates being murdered and she fears for her safety, she is scared and turns to Rio for help. This book reminds me of the trouble Zsadist from J.R Ward’s Lover Awakened had with trust and afraid to love, being ashamed of the way he looked, not thinking he is good enough. I am so happy Rio and Dylan found happiness together, a tortured hero with a strong female to match, they make a great pair. Some hot as heck steamy scenes in this book, I really enjoyed the shower scene.
