The Dark Hunter series is my favorite paranormal series and this is one of my favorite Dark Hunter books. I love Talon! And Sunshine is one of my favorite heroines. Of course, I also love Ash and there are some GREAT scenes involving him. Good storyline, great smut (you gotta love Talon hanging upside down from his exercise bar), great insights into Ash and his history. This is one that I keep by my bedside and read parts over again often! Enjoy!

NIGHT EMBRACE is the story of Talon, an immortal Celt, who (for nefarious reasons unknown to him) is reunited with the reincarnated soul of his dead wife, Nynia. Nynia has been reborn as Sunshine Runningwolf, a modern-day starving artist. Sunshine is the kind of heroine who is easy to relate to: she's made a few mistakes in life, yet she is also independent, realistic, and easy to get along with. Her responses to Talon, a hunky vampire hunter, are genuine (I could imagine myself thinking those same thoughts if I met a guy like him). Talon is also an interesting hero with an interesting back story, and you can really see him fall in love with Sunshine. The best part of NIGHT EMBRACE, however, isn't the romance so much as it is the adventure that revolves around the secondary characters, which include the always fascinating Acheron, a psycho good guy named Zarek, and some were-creatures (not to mention the various Greek and Celtic gods). Reading about these guys made me want to go out and buy the rest of the Dark-Hunter series, just to see what happens to them. This is also impressive, because I had almost decided to give up on Kenyon as an author since her first two novels seemed WAY too dopey and silly to me. NIGHT EMBRACE redeemed her, in my mind. I'm looking forward to the next novel in the series, now.

This book took me forever, I mean FOREVER to read. I actually feel bad for Talon. Why, you ask? He had to follow up Kyrian's story, which totally rocked. This book fell flat for me and I really didn't want it to. I didn't feel the romance was the main focus of the story, and even though I loved the fact that Talon and Sunshine had a great connection, I did not get that dreamy, Ahh, after finishing it. I immediately put it on PBS for a book credit. Don't get me wrong, I love the Dark Hunter series, and this book makes Archeron even more of a mystery, building up his book, which is still oodles away. I am slowly making my way there. I have Dance with the Devil, Zarek's story from the library in my possession. Can anyone tell me if it's better than Talon's story? If you read Night Embrace book, let me know what your thoughts were!

This is my favourite so far! I accidentally read them out of order with Fantasy Lover, then Kiss of the Night (number 5) then Night Pleasures and Night Embrace and this is by far my favourite. I'm not too fond of Sunshine, but Talon... mmm mmm! This is a great series altogether but this installment by far gets 5 stars!

'Night Embrace' is all about Talon of the Morrigantes, a doomed Celt and familiar to those that read 'Night Pleasures'. I should say that it's the story of both Talon AND his ladylove Sunshine, but honestly Sunshine is more of a supporting role in this book rather than a main character. She's weak, fruity, and somewhat silly and I found her hard to like in the beginning. But that's okay, because Talon is so wonderfully complex and fun to read about that you won't be able to put the book down.

The storyline starts out as just romance between Talon and Sunshine, but about the middle of the book, it turns from just a simple love story to an out and out adventure and a save-the-world climax, something the Dark-Hunters are always having to do. Kenyon sets her series in New Orleans and it's obvious it's an area she's very familiar with -- the setting is very rich. Returning in this book is the huge cast of characters that Kenyon has populated her series with (and that can be seen on the Dark-Hunters.com website). My personal favorite is Nick, the Squire, but Acheron plays a very large part in this and there's even a cameo by Eros and Psyche (whom I love as well).

Still Intreging enough to keep me reading the series. Some of her style doesn't really ring with me but the overall plot keeps me coming back.

Another sexy Dark Hunter paranormal romance novel from popular author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

From back cover: 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

I liked this book. The Hero has some major stuff he has to work through and It was nice to see the Heroine work on not only accepting her personality but accepting the possibility that someone could accept her and love her without trying to or expecting her to change who she is. It was also interesting the Way the author introduced and dealt with one of the major aspects of their relationship. Strong "moving on in life and being who you are in the moment" theme

Sunshine was an idiot! (Gets lost in a city she's lived in her whole life, dries leather pants in the hot dryer (oops they shrunk!), leaves a wallet out in plain sight at a public laundromat, and is shocked (shocked I tell you!) that someone took it!). Duh-oh! Strangely though, even as I shook my head at her stupidity, I liked her.

Definitely interested in Zarek and his story (next book!). The supporting cast is what kept me reading this book.

Another great read, but I am dying to read the Acheron book. I'm going through the book list in order though.
