Veil of Midnight
The Midnight Breed, Book 5
December 30, 2008
Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.
A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining.
A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…
Renata is a Breedmate working for Sergei Yakut, a Gen One vampire who makes his own rules. In addition to her psychic ability that can render even the mightiest of warriors defenseless, Renata has combat skills that were hard earned on the streets. Now she finds that she has more to protect than herself, a young girl with an amazing psychic ability that the wrong men with power are willing to pay to possess.
Nikolai is a warrior for the Order, and is searching for Yakut when he first meets Renata. He hopes to gain Yakut’s cooperation in discovering who is killing off the Gen One vampires, but it’s clear from the beginning that Niko’s presence is far from welcome.
When Niko finds himself in a dire situation, it’s Renata he’s forced to rely on. In turn they must trust each other in order to save young Mira and to ensure that each of them survives.
This is the fifth installment in the Midnight Breed series and tells the story of Niko and Renata. Ms. Adrian shares a tale that clearly defines the good and bad in her world of vampires. Veil of Midnight is a well-told addition to the series, and mixes the introduction of new characters with continued contact with those whom readers have previously become familiar with. The suspense and mystery are well-paced, and a new romance adds just the right chemistry to keep fans coming back for more of the same from this engaging storyline.
