From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lara Adrian comes a new story in her Midnight Breed series…
Once, they lived in secret alongside mankind. Now, emerged from the shadows, the Breed faces enemies on both sides—human and vampire alike. No one knows that better than Lazaro Archer, one of the eldest, most powerful of his kind. His beloved Breedmate and family massacred by a madman twenty years ago, Lazaro refuses to open his heart again.
Sworn to his duty as the leader of the Order’s command center in Italy, the last thing the hardened warrior wants is to be tasked with the rescue and safekeeping of an innocent woman in need of his protection. But when a covert mission takes a deadly wrong turn, Lazaro finds himself in the unlikely role of hero with a familiar, intriguing beauty he should not desire, but cannot resist.
Melena Walsh has never forgotten the dashing Breed male who saved her life as a child. But the chivalrous hero of her past is in hard contrast to the embittered, dangerous man on whom her safety now depends. And with an unwanted—yet undeniable—desire igniting between them, Melena fears that Lazaro’s protection may come at the price of her heart….
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Alpha male, yes please!
Lazaro is such an ALPHA male sigh, I really really loved his character and I knew he would come to his senses I just knew it! Whilst I wanted to strangle him a bit there I knew it would take something big for him to see that he could start a new life with Mel. And it happened, yay!
There is so much passion and love (heartache too) packed into these novellas that they draw you in like you’ve been reading these characters for eons in their own novels or something, I love it! Their HEA’s are so worth it and Lara Adrian draws you in quick, these are such amazing reads!!
Lazaro and Mel FTW.
