This books starts a new series about vampires and their breedmates. The vampire storyline is a new twist on the stuff that's already out there. The characters are great!
The first book is what most series introductions are - the setup to the premise for the storylines of the rest of the books, but it is still exciting as well as explanitory.
The books can be read out of order (so far there are only two - one on the way in December), but I would recommend reading them in order because you get background on characters that are featured in the second book and it will give them more deapth.
I am already hooked on these two and will buy the third as soon as it hits the shelves.
If you love vampire romance as much as I do, these books are for you.

1st in the series and what a great book. A lot like the JR Ward books. This is Gabrielle's and Lucan's story. Danger and desire. Looking forward to the next one.

Lucan Thorne is a vampire. He is also the leader of a group of vampires known as Breed warriors. They fight Rogue vampires, those vampires who have given into the bloodlust. Gabrielle Maxwell is outside a club and witnesses a brutal murder of a man to a group of Rogues. She takes their picture with her cell phone camera and runs to the police. Only the police don't believe her. Lucan was also at this same club and he watches Gabrielle unwittingly become involved in his world. He cleans up the mess the Rogues left behind so that humans will remain unaware of vampires. He now has to get those pictures from Gabrielle.
I couldn't get into this book. I couldn't connect with the characters. I didn't care what happened to Gabrielle or Lucan. It seemed like they were only skin deep. I think Adrian has potential though. Some of the things her characters thought or said were quite funny; but it wasn't consistent. When the Breed warriors were having a conversation together, it was laughable, but not in a good way. Their â€śhe-manâ€ť talk was more than a little over-the-top at times and seemed silly.
Kiss of Midnight wasn't neatly wrapped up at the end. Lucan and Gabrielle do get their happy ending, but the bad guy gets away. There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end when the bad guy's identity is revealed, yet left unresolved. There were many story arcs that will continue in the series. In some ways this book was more of a set up for things to come. I am interested enough to see what Adrian has next that I will be reading the next book. Let's hope the second book is better than the first one.
