Author: Lara Adrian
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Synopsis: Delivered from the darkness, a woman finds herself plunged into a passion that is Deeper Than Midnight.
At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well – the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.
Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’s most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Drago’s reign of evil – even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart.

Review: I read the previous book (Taken By Midnight) in 2013 so I was kind of playing catch up while reading this. Adrian recapped all the important stuff throughout the story though so that was handy.
Since starting this series I read J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood which is pretty similar to Midnight Breed. I kept getting the storylines and characters mixed up….
I’m not sure I’ll continue with Midnight Breed but I did enjoy this instalment. There seems to be more focus on the main story line of the series instead of the romances which made it a more interesting read. And that ending!!! I may pick up the next one just to see what happens next.
