Description

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns with a pulse-pounding new novel in the thrilling Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper’s bullet.

Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she’s grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he’s enlisted Marina’s help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina’s bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain’s intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain’s cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina—a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she’ll ever know.

    Book 2 of the Hunters series has arrived, and we find ourselves moving on to Cain, who we met and learned about in the first hunters book involving Asher and Naomi. In Cain’s book we meet Marina a very strong woman, who has faced massive loss and clings to who she has left. We come to see the heavy guilt Cain holds within himself, and it takes Marina to stand strong and help him. We see that Marina, who has very limited family, it takes Cain to overcome his relationship woes to show her that family doesn't have to be through blood. The chemistry between Cain and Marina still keeps on track to the level of hot intensity as we have seen in Lara’s other Breed stories. In Cain and Marina’s story we come to meet more secondary characters who will more than likely appear again in future books, and through these characters in Cain’s story we come to see the real Cain as he was, before his guilt took over. I look forward to the next standalone novel of the Hunter’s Series. Keep up the amazing work Lara! Can't get enough of the smoking hot and sexy breed males! If you haven’t read any of Lara’s books yet I highly recommend it, they are addicting. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    Love this Midnight Breed spin-off! Lara does not disappoint in this second addictive addition. Cain has finally met his match with Russian beauty Marina. Action, suspense and some serious sexual tension keep you reading through the night. I’m eagerly awaiting my next vampire fix...and I have a feeling I know who it will be 😉

    She has done it again. This book was so good. Lots of action and intrigue. It made me fall in love with the series again. This was the kind of book that made we want to go back and read the series all over again. Cain is a great hero. Marina his perfect mate. I think the Hunter series is off to a great start. I received an ARC for my honest review.
