Midnight Rising (Midnight Breed series) by Lara AdrianJust as with wine and cheese, Lara Adrian only gets better with time. Her latest entry in the Midnight Breed series, Midnight Rising (March 25, 2008), is yet another solid and engrossing vampire romance.

This time, she tackles the story of the beleaguered Rio. Terribly scarred inside and out by betrayal at the hands of the one he loved most has left him a shell of the man he once was, without hope for anything resembling the life he once had. He no longer has the desire to live — everything changes, however, when the brilliant and beautiful Dylan Alexander, a tabloid journalist, enters his life.

Their meeting is not by chance, nor is it an ideal one, but the two must ultimately work together to stop the spread of her photographs, which could expose the entire vampire race to the unknowing world around them, as well as begin to unravel the mystery surrounding the missing Ancient and a sinister plot that’s enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck. Along the way, the two must face their own personal demons along the way, cope with the very real threat of personal loss for Dylan whose mother is stricken with cancer, and deal with the rising feelings between them of both passion and affection. This is a superb pairing and a testament to the healing power of love.

Thank you, Lara, for yet another great read. I am already ready for the next!
