Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I command the elements, and I know no fear. For centuries, I’ve protected the innocent and watched over the mankind, making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress, who wants nothing more from me then one night.
Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman who saves my life but can’t remember where she put my pants. Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no ties, no long-term commitments.
But every time I look at her, I start yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her would mean her death. I am cursed never to know peace or happiness— not so long as my enemy waits in the night to destroy us both.
—Talon of the Morrigantes
“So there’s hope?”
“Honey, there’s always hope.”
Night Embrace has a perfect and smoothly-built storyline. It is not only a pretty frame story for the romance, but a vibrant, thrilling action line with powerful and serious antagonists, a grandiose conspiracy, mystery, surprising twists, and important and significant secondary characters.
Talon’s backstory is unique, well-developed, and heartbreaking. It is filled with love, revenge, fate, sorrow, intrigue, and myth mixing with history. It’s only a plus that he is stunning inside and out, he is naughty and amusing.
Sunshine’s heritage and family is extraordinary. I love her mother, she is so cool!
“I’m not a werewolf.”
Starla looked really disappointed by the news. “What a pity. You know, when you live in New Orleans, you expect to meet the undead at least once in a while.” She looked back to Sunshine. “You think we should move? Maybe if we lived over by Anne Rice we might catch sight of a vampire or werewolf.”
In Night Embrace Ms. Kenyon reveals intriguing crumbs of information about the Dark-Hunterverse, about its characters and myth, making you eager to know more about it.
