DELIVERED FROM THE DARKNESS, A WOMAN FINDS HERSELF PLUNGED INTO A PASSION THAT IS DEEPER THAN MIDNIGHT.   At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well—the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.
Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’s most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Dragos’s reign of evil—even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart.

    Plot and Story Line 

    This is a story I have been waiting for, for quite some time now. I have been eager for Hunter’s story ever since he switched sides. I have always loved him, we have seen the good in him even from the beginning and it has been truly wonderful to see his change over the past few books!! Now this is a story that deals with some hard issues and wasn’t always easy to read. But that is what I loved about this book the most…is seeing a story evolve that discusses hard matters and creates a beautifully woven romance to keep you asking for more. In this boook, I was overwhelmed with the heroine especially. She is one tough cookie, I loved her fighting spirit and her couragous nature. She never gives up even if it seems hopeless. She is determined to find her son that was taken from her when he was born. Even despite the fact that he might not be what she pictured, she will do anything to show him….the love of a mother and guide him away from all that he has been trained to do….be a killer. This is where Hunter comes into play in aiding her come to terms with the past. Hunter is a character that has committed horrible acts because of his training, but we see the truth of spirit in his character and we see more of his past.

    Age makes you want to hold everyone you love as close as you can.

    The romance that develops between these two is quite wonderful, there were moments I felt a bit disconnected but not enough to keep me from enjoying the story and the way this couple comes together when they need each other the most.

    The Cover 

    I love blue covers, especially in PNR….and this cover truly fits the bill. I love the blue moonlight effect.

    Overall View 

    Deeper Than Midnight is a story that is thrilling with adventure, exciting in new shocks and some spicy romance that leaves you aching. Truly a wonderful addition to a fabulous series.

    • I seriously LOVE Hunter! I thought this was a great book.

    • I need to read these! It sounds like such a good book, especially for being this far into the series.

    • Yep, Hunter was a favorite of mine from the moment he came on scene. It was great seeing him get his own romance.

    • I have never read this series :/ I did have one book1, but something was wrong with it (ebook sigh)
