Publisher's Summary

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 20 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....

Wished it were longer-love Lazaro's story

As an avid reader and listener of this series, I was excited to listen to the story. I like Lazaro's character and his story when his darkhaven was destroyed in a previous book. I was glad to hear his love story was coming. I enjoyed the story. I wished it were longer with more character development and details. That is the con for me. This book/novella helps to continue to build the series. Hillary Huber did a great job reading. I always enjoy her work.

Facinating!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tale! The journey the main characters took to reach each other fraught with peril and ancient hurts. The narration was well done supported the whole listening experience. I would love to listen or read the other books in the series as well.

Tempted by Midnight (Lazarro and Melina)

Again, Melina easily bypasses security in the compound. There needs to be more restrictions around forming the blood bond. Considering the seriousness and permanence of the act, too many oh oh just couldn’t help it. Didn’t like Melina disrespecting Lazaro in presence of his men and didn’t like her tirades. I lied the happy ending but. It shouldn’t be so predictable as to how they get there. Perhaps Derrick should have turned Her over to Opus Nostrom and she got rescued by Lazaro or that he returned to Rome and had a hard time getting to Melina. I know Dereck was killer but still her brother but She quickly gets over loss of both because she got her man makes the love she professes for her father in the beginning of story not true. Maybe story not available on audio book yet but what book establishes the DC office and When did Leuk. and Gab son grow up to adulthood since he drove Mel to Md?

Awesome Narrator

Ummm okay so I don’t want to leave a bad review so I’ll just say it wasn’t what I was looking for 🤷🏽‍♀️. Lazaro & Melena share a history, he’s drawn to her but tries to resist her, when he just can’t take it anymore 🙄🙄 he lets himself have this “one moment” rolls eyes 🙄 so predictable. Afterwards he leaves but realizes literally 10 minutes later that he cat live without her and goes back only to now find she’s in trouble and desperately needs his help and blah blah blah they live HEA. Why is this shelved as a vampire story? The audible portion of this book was the best part.

Great Series! Good listening!

I enjoy this series a lot. There's always great romance, and some action. Love the whole breedmate scenario, and the chemistry is usually awesome. I've been listening to the novellas from this series, and the narration has been great. The narrator for this one does a great job. I liked that Lazaro and Melena have a bit of a back story, and I like when there's a bit of resisting to fall in love. Lazaro doesn't want to bring anyone into his dangerous world, but he's finding it difficult to resist the pull towards Melena. They have some great passion between them, and I enjoyed Melena calling Lazaro out on his b.s. The beginning was an exciting way to start the story too; it drew me in. Looking forward to more!

Not that great

I didn't really like either one of these characters. Way to much sex, and I wasn't convinced of his love for her after loving his first mate so much. Wish I had skipped this one.

I LOVE this series!

So much action and romance packed into a short novella that leaves you completely satisfied. Strong aloha bale breed with an equally strong, intelligent mate. After do many novels I still haven't tried or got bored. Now if our human makes were equally intense we'd all be walking around with a content smile on our faces 😚

Second chance for Lazaro

This story was short and sweet. The narrator was awesome as usual. The chemistry between the characters was just right. Mel and Lazaro were likable characters and they fit together. I’m wish we had more back story about the villain’s choice to betray The Breeds but I’m sure it will come up in later stories.

Couldn't get into it.

Monotone narration kept me from being able to get interested in this book. Didn't finish.
